SAISA Sailors of the Week, Weekend 6


RALEIGH, N.C., OCTOBER 17, 2018 – The South Atlantic Intercollegiate Sailing Association recognizes co-ed sailors Cameron Douglas and Camryn Kennedy of Eckerd College for their outstanding performance at SAISA South Points #4 in St. Petersburg, Florida. Douglas, captain of the Eckerd College Tritons and Kennedy worked hard to make the best of light conditions and delivered a wire-to-wire A-fleet division win for the home team. Together with a Tritons' second-place finish in B-fleet, the pair secured the regatta win and vaulted the Tritons over both Jacksonville and Miami for the top spot in SAISA South. 

In women's sailing, Clemson University sailors Jenn Casey and Hannah Oswalt won the B-fleet division at SAISA North Points #4 hosted by Georgia Tech on Lake Lanier. With three race wins and no finishes greater than 2nd for the entire event, Casey and Oswalt delivered the low-score for any pairing in either division and contributed to the wire-to-wire regatta win for the Tigers. With the solid finish and regatta win, Clemson earned 2nd overall place in SAISA North for the fall season and qualified for SAISA Conference Championships.
