This weekend, BUSA produced their strongest fleet racing performance to date at the Hood Trophy Regatta hosted by Tufts University.
Two teams were entered by BUSA in a field of 20 teams. The first team of Ian Martin, Chris Martin, Andy Cornah and Mark Lees finished 5th overall whilst the second team of Sam Carter and Andy Bryson along with two borrowed crews from Tufts University were placed 8th. Conditions throughout the weekend were light and shifty with the wind barely increasing above 8 knots.
On Saturday, Dave Cheshire won a race at the Harvard Metro Series with a 110 kilo crew. He is amazing.
Monday and Tuesday will be spent training in Lasers for Wednesday’s deciding Trophy Match at Coast Guard Academy, Connecticut and Tufts University.
The team return home on Saturday, and we’ll all be in Jesters on Monday sporting our lovely yellow gilets.
