Sailing club team wins third in Chicago regatta

The Lake Forest College sailing club team finished third overall in the 70th Timme Angsten Memorial Regatta on Lake Michigan off Chicago’s Belmont Harbor on September 24 and 25.

About 70 sailors comprised 12 club teams from schools all around the Midwest. Both days had easterly winds. Lighter winds on Saturday combined with leftover swells and reflections from the seawall to create a chaotic and challenging wave pattern. Sunday’s wind was stronger, which improved the racing conditions.

Lake Forest skipper Xander O’Grady ’17 and crew Max Spehlmann ’17 dominated the A Division both days, winning six of 12 races.

Skipper Charlie Koules ’17 had a solid fifth place in B-Division with crews Sophia Lane ’19 (races 1-4), Kal Parvanov ’20 (races 5-10), and Richard Biggio-Gottschlich ’19 (races 11-12).

Lake Forest finished behind Northwestern University and University of Wisconsin–Madison. Click here for the full scores.

The club team heads to Milwaukee for the Pere Marquette Regatta on October 1 and 2.
