Regatta Report: Small Keelboat Scrimmage


  • Grant Glover (‘19)- Skipper

  • Max Ellsworth (‘21)- Foredeck

  • Allison Engkvist (‘22)- Pit

  • Murphy Vandervest (‘21)- Trim



Four sailors went to the Naval Academy for the Small Keelboat Scrimmage this weekend, October 13-14. They sailed Colgate 26’s against eight other teams. On Saturday, the wind was an average of fifteen knots with gusts up to twenty knots, and for some of the races the team did not use a spinnaker. At the end of the first day, eight races were sailed and Michigan was tied for first place. On Sunday, the wind was too light to sail in, so the races were canceled. The Wolverines ended up in second place in the tiebreaker.
