On April 30, the Wesleyan University Sailing Team hosted their first ever inter-collegiate regatta on Lake Pocotopaug in East Hampton, Conn. After a morning of little to no wind, the afternoon picked up and the students were able to sail eight races.

Wesleyan seniors and co-captains Katie Walker ’16, Kevin Winnie ’16 and Rachel Kurlander ’16 sailed their last college regatta at the event, which was sponsored by the New England Intercollegiate Sailing Association.

Bates College, Sacred Heart, and Fairfield University also participated, with Bates taking first place in the regatta. Wesleyan took third. (Photos courtesy of Wesleyan Sailing Team)
