Future College Sailors: members of the 2015 Race Team
2015-2016 was a banner year for FBYC junior graduates! FBYC had 4 sailors in major college programs: Alexander Hanna sailed for Texas A&M; Eric Roos for William & Mary; Jeremy Herrin for Old Dominion University; and Austin Powers for Christopher Newport University. We also had a graduate coaching at the college level-Cori Radtke coaches at Bowdoin College in Maine, which has one of the top collegiate sailing programs in the nation.
In the last two years, FBYC junior alums Ellen Hubbard, who sailed for the University of Virginia, and Ben and Mary Catherine Buhl, both of whom sailed for Christopher Newport, completed highly successful collegiate sailing careers.
This fall we will have several more former juniors move into the college ranks, including Hanna Steadman, who will sail for Brown University; and Nina Willms, who will sail for William & Mary. Nina will also coach this summer at Camp Seagull/Camp Seafarer.
