GOING TO NATIONALS
Olympia High School Sailing Qualified for Fleet Race Nationals in Houston, Texas May 11-13th
Olympia is going to Texas!!!
OYC's Olympia High School Sailing Team dominated both Gold and Silver Fleet this weekend in Seattle taking 1ST in both fleets (that's a total of 46 teams and close to 300 athletes from all over the Northwest!). Capital finished in 4th in Gold fleet only mere points from third!!
Olympia will travel to Fleet Race Nationals in Galveston, TX May 11-13th. Fleet racing is like running a marathon and it's one of two National events, the 2nd National event we will attempt to qualify for is: Team Racing Nationals (think of a relay race + a chess match on the water)!
Both events are highly prestigious and only the top 20 teams go to Fleet Race Nationals and only 12 go to Team Race Nationals.
This is a historic win for the Olympia Yacht Club and Olympia High School. Our sailors have worked incredibly hard, they're dedication to the sport and each other is powerful.
