Sailing camp comes to a close with Jack’s Cup!


A quick start (and a mid-race gust of wind) propelled two former sailing camp champions to victory at Jack’s CupSailing Camp Finals - Pok-O-MacCready Summer Camp Regatta.  Forget America’s Cup because Jack’s Cup is the coveted sailing camp prize around here!  The race was held Friday morning on Long Pond in Willsboro New York.

Alec and Elizabeth took the final victory by a margin of ten seconds over Hannah and Kate.  “We definitely had the best start,” reported Alec, “but then the wind died down.  Hannah and Kate caught us near the second mark.  We made a tight turn and got past them.  Then the breeze picked up again.”

This was the second sailing camp victory for both sailors. Both captured titles with other partners in previous races.  Alec and Elizabeth qualified for the final race as a “wild card” entry. Hannah and Kate won preliminary heats, and so did two other teams consisting of Aiden Annie and Pascal & Caroline.  Twenty-two racers competed in this sailing camp race, setting a new record.

Pok-O-MacCready has offered an intensive sailing camp program for over one hundred years of summer camp history.  Campers who are interested in sailing and other water sports can take lessons almost every day.  They learn all about sailing basics and other skills.  After proving their ability level they move up into more advanced ranks.  They may also choose to go on sailing trips to nearby Ausable Point to compete in races against other camps in New York.  Jack’s Cup marked the end of the 2013 summer sailing camp’s competitive sports schedule.
