This weekend OCC sailing went down to Ocean City, Maryland to sail in the Salisbury hosted regatta winning with a score almost half of that of the second place boat. Congrats to Autumn Hoover for skippering her first college regatta ever with Emily Bowen as her crew. Good Job to Tyler Kennedy and his crew Sarah Salter, Bradford Wright and his crew Jamie Wasco for their almost perfect scored this weekend. OCC may very well be on the hunt to bang out the end of their season with an undefeated second half.

This weekend OCC hosted a two-on-two, two day team race hosting eight teams including themselves and coming in first place. Though Saturday was rough with wind gusts up to 30 mph OCC managed to come out of it winning a tie breaker for first with Cornell. Sailing smart in the slightly lighter wind Sunday OCC sailed themselves into first place having an almost undefeated regatta with one loss to Colgate but a first place overall!

Congratulations to OCC for making it at the Central Spring Qualifier in Princeton this past weekend! In two weekends from now, April 17 and 18, OCC will be competing in the America's trophy up at Cornell where the top eight teams there will qualify ICSA Dinghy Nationals on May 1 and 2. So congratulations.

Recently I have updated our entire calender with every regatta that we are scheduled for as of right now for the Spring and Fall 2010 season. Since there is a lot of code to understand I have also uploaded a key as to what everything means. I have also uploaded the Excel sheet that Dan Winters makes up with the schedule if you want it direct. As the season progresses I will most likely upload all of our standings to the team files section too. Thanks ~Autumn

To celebrate a fantastic season Roy would like to get together with everyone next Tuesday December 15th at 6:00PM. We will meet at TRYC and take a boat over to OGYC dock and then walk to the Anchor Inn. To help defray the cost of the dinner it will be $10 per person and you can order anything from the menu. The college will pick up the rest of the tab. We might go in the gray rib so bring your life jacket.

Should be a fun evening. Coach Bill and Matt will speak about some of the fun moments they had with the team this season.

Toms River college Team

The OCC intercollegiate sailing team is open to all full time OCC students. NO experience is necessary to join! We host both a spring and fall regatta and have many ambitious goals for our new program. The College is committed to providing a first class sailing experience and training ground for our future captains and crew members in Ocean County. OCC has acquired 18 new 420s from generous donations from the surrounding community. We have a 12 man dinghy team, a women’s dinghy team, a single handed team and are in the process of developing an off shore sloop team. Aspirations for the team are high — OCC expects to house the premier sailing program on the East Coast. We plan to develop clubhouse facilities, acquire floating docks and purchase seven additional 420 Sailboats.
