From Coach Liam Faudree:

This past weekend the Mercy/McQuaid sailing team competed at the First Annual Foundry Cup in Cleveland, Ohio. We had two teams competing both team sailed fast and were very tuned into the racing conditions. The day started out wet with a light south west breeze but as the day went on the rain started to become more off and on and the wind built a little which helped our sailors. The team of Gavin Bloom a senior who was racing in his last high school regatta as skipper with crew Emily Davis (11 Gr) raced A division while Brent Penwarden and Sarah Chew raced in B division. Both teams raced very well pulling off a lot of 1sts and 2nd place finishes for an overall 1st place finish! Great job team and way to bring home a first place finish in our last regatta of the year.

Our other team of Kyle Flaherty and Abigail Hentschke who sailed in A division and Grace Taylor and Bridget Taylor or raced in B division sailed fast as well with many great races. Another great regatta and what a great way to finish off the season. Shout out to Emily Davis (10gr) who skippered her first full regatta! Great sailing and let’s keep it going this summer!
