The Queens Keelboat Sailing team competed this weekend at the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland.

The team members were Clifton Kartner, Connor Mackenzie, Kieran Saddler, Claire Boileau, Cody Weeden, Jack Breislin, Nick Wright, and Daniel Sheedy; all sailing aboard a Navy 44.

The conditions were light but shifting on Saturday. Sunday brought in strong gusty winds, causing sail restrictions for all races.

The team started off strongly with a 2nd place finish in the first race on Saturday.

The second race the team struggled off the start and tried to catch up to the fleet.

The team rallied in the final two races to get 16 points overall.

On Sunday the team sailed amazing, wining the two races of the day.

Unfortunately this effort was not enough to win the event, but with only one point separating first and second Queens claimed a commanding second place at a challenging event.
