LTYC Youth J/70 Team Qualifies for US Championships!

A HUGE congratulations goes out to LTYC members (and LTS alumni / coaches / instructors) Ian Beckley, Franny Schulte, Robert Duff, and Preston Carey for qualifying for the inaugural U.S. J/70 Youth Championship to be sailed in Newport, RI in August.  This past weekend at the Chicago NOOD regatta, the LTYC team placed first in the under-21 division (and 9th overall / 4th Corinthian), thereby qualifying them for a spot among the twelve teams from across the country who will compete in the J/Boats sponsored event August 11, 12, and 13. The goal of this event is to help develop and build leading-edge junior keelboat sailing programs across America, and the top prize is one-year of usage of a fully equipped  J/70 (with sails and trailer) provided by J/Boats.
