Navy Offshore Sailing Places Second in McMillan Cup

Navy offshore sailing placed second in the McMillan Cup.

Oct. 26, 2011

The Navy offshore sailing team competed in two events over the weekend, including the McMillan Cup, which is college sailing's oldest regatta and was first competed for in 1928. Since 1950 it has been hosted by the Naval Academy in its 44' sailboats and serves as the big boat championship for the New England and Mid-Atlantic districts.

Navy finished second overall in the six-race series, led by skipper Dillon Rossiter.

Navy also had two entries in the IRC Mid-Atlantic Championship. Colin Nevins skippered Defiance to third in IRC class 3 while James Chesson was fourth aboard Integrity in the same class.

The team will compete in the J105 East Coast Championships and the Farr 40 Chesapeake Bay Invitational both next weekend.
