AHOY EVERYONE! The Drexel Sailing Team has been having a great fall season. We have 5 new additions to the team so far – Rob, Melanie, Kuba, and Alex – thank you for your interest; we look forward to working with you! We have attended quite a few regattas since the last issue of the newsletter. Unfortunately our season is quickly coming to a close with only 2 regattas left to attend! We will be at Hampton College for the Henry Luce on 10/29 – 10/30 and at Fordham and Columbia for the Club Championships on 11/5 – 11/6 which we qualified for at the Central Qualifier #2. In this issue, you can find regatta reports written by our very own Drexel sailors of each regatta we have attended so far.
