Maine Maritime races in Los Angeles

Maine Maritime races in Los Angeles

The Maine Maritime Academy sailing team headed to the Port of Los Angeles Harbor Cup regatta on March 10, competing against nine other college teams from the United States and Europe. MMA won the regatta the first two years it was held, in 2008 and 2009, but this year the team came in fifth, competing in heavy fog and gusting winds that canceled the third and final day of racing. Under Coach Caroline McNally, MMA ended the first day in seventh place, but a first-place win in the fifth race on the second day bumped the team up to its mid-way spot in the final standings.
