Nov. 4, 2013
ANNAPOLIS, Md. - The Navy varsity offshore sailing team placed fourth of five boats in the High Performance class this past weekend at the Annapolis Big Boat Regatta. Navy sailed in its newly donated Farr 40. Senior Andy Beeler served as the skipper.
Steve & Heidi Benjamin took first place in the class in a HPR Carkeek 40.
Next up for Navy is the Kennedy Cup from Friday to Sunday.
The John F. Kennedy Memorial Trophy was presented to the U.S. Naval Academy in 1965 on behalf of the many friends of the late President. President Kennedy's love for sailing is perpetuated in the annual competition for the trophy, which represents the National Collegiate Large Yacht Championship.
Navy won the Kennedy Cup in 2012 and 2011.
