Spring Break Success

The team returned from St. Petersburg, FL last weekend after spending at week at the University of South Florida's facilities to train. After placing 5th at the Frank Mendelblatt Team Race Regatta at USF at the beginning of the trip, the team was ready to keep sailing in the sunshine and work on boat handling team racing tactics.
The team was on the water from 9-5 Monday through Friday.  They focused on working on boat handling skills the first two days, and switched to racing mode for the second half of the week.  The sun was shining and temperatures broke 70 degrees every day, and all team members were devastated to return home to cold weather and frozen lakes at the end of the week.
Thank you to the Knoles family, USF, and our coach Andrew!
