The Everest sailing club has enjoyed the first weeks of competition. Here are some of the highlights:
“The team did awesome, they competed in a pretty high level qualifier regatta with very competitive schools from different states. It was their first regatta, and they completed all 24 races with a 5th place as one of their highest finishes. We were so impressed and proud of them. Diego Kittinger skippered 24 races. Diego Esquer, Pascual Noriega, and Valentino Orsini alternated as crew. Overall, it was an amazing weekend with a lots of practice and awesome performance from the entire team.” -Coach Gregg Kittinger
After the second regatta, coach provided this update:
“Awesome sailing this weekend by team Everest. – We had three teams on the water this weekend and here are the standings out a field of 21 boats:
- Diego Kittinger and Valentino Orsini placed 6th
- Pascual Noriega and Diego Esquer placed 8th in their first regatta together.
- Luca Orsini and a guest from Rochester placed 14th in Luca’s first ever regatta!”
This weekend Diego Kittinger will be competing in the Junior Olympics with teams from throughout the midwest. The rest of the group will be at Pontiac Yacht Club skippering their second race. Go Mountaineers!
