Published on September 24th, 2014
The stakes are high at the U.S. Team Racing Championship on September 26-28 in Marblehead, MA. Hosted by the Eastern Yacht Club, the U.S. Team Racing Championship serves as the U.S. Qualifier for the 2015 ISAF Team Racing World Championship in Great Britain.
Former U.S. Team Racing Champions, college All-Americans, and an impressive pool of sailors who have had success in various disciplines and racing backgrounds will compete over three days on Marblehead Harbor for the esteemed George R. Hinman Trophy. Making a return to defend their 2013 title is the team named, Ladies and Gentlemen. This year’s team includes Tyler Sinks (San Diego, Calif.), Lucy Wallace (Middletown, R.I.), Justin Law (Balboa, Calif.), Adrienne Patterson (Miami, Fla.), Michael Menninger (San Francisco, Calif.) and Ben Lezin (Santa Cruz, Calif.).
The championship will be raced in three-boat/six-person teams using the new Zim 15, a doublehanded, monohull dinghy designed by Steve Clark.
