Club sailing competes in Great Lakes Intercollegiate Regatta

The Grand Valley State club sailing team competed in the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Regatta in Chicago Sept. 24 and 25. The Lakers finished in seventh place overall out of 12 teams.

The GLIOR featured teams mostly from the Midwest, but also teams from all over the nation. The Lakers’ seventh place finish was enough to beat Toledo, the 2014 Intercollegiate Offshore Champions, by one point.

The weather cooperated for most of the weekend making for good sailing conditions. On the first day of the event, winds out of the northeast caused some chop in the water, creating challenging upwind legs. On Sunday, the wind from the southwest made for steady conditions and faster times.

The club sailing team will host the Emma Biagioni/Laker Showdown Oct. 1 and 2 at the Macatawa Bay Yacht Club in Holland, Michigan.
