Niantic, CT – 9/29/14-Coast Guard Academy’s Avery Fanning ‘16 won the NEISA Men’s Singlehanded Championship and is NEISA’s Coed Sailor of the Week.  Fanning was dominant, winning three races and scoring in the top three in nine of the twelve races sailed.   Conditions were generally light, building to 8-12 knots for the final races.  Fanning’s Conference Championship victory qualifies him for the ICSA Singlehanded National Championship in November.
