Sailing has traditionally been one of the most successful athletic programs at Massachusetts Maritime, and the Buccaneers are looking to keep that tradition going once again this fall with 29 events scheduled in both dinghy and off-shore competition under the guidance of longtime Director of Sailing Chuck Fontaine.
Massachusetts Maritime begins its Fall 2014 slate over the weekend of September 13-14 with competition at Maine Maritime, Roger Williams and MIT. The Buccaneers will once again host the Commonwealth Invitational on September 27-28 and the Great Herring Pond Open on October 18-19 at the Keith Hartford Sailing Center, and Fontaine’s squads are set to once again participate in the prestigious Shields Trophy, MacMillan Cup and John F. Kennedy Cup at the United States Naval Academy as well as the Storm Trysail Regatta off the coast of Long Island Sound.
Additionally, Massachusetts Maritime will compete in five specific women’s sailing events, including the Dartmouth Mrs. Hurst Bowl and the Salve Regina Women’s Olympians Trophy.
