Sailing at Dyer Dhow Derby Mystic Seaport Museum Regatta, Mystic, CT - October 17, 2015

The whole Dublin Sailing Team raced in the Mystic Seaport Museum "Dyer Dhow Derby" Saturday October 17th.  MSM's goal was to get as many as possible of their 50+ 9-foot-long Dyer Dhow sailboats - mostly used for sailing instruction classes - out racing.  Our 20-student team helped.  For Dublin sailors it was an opportunity to race single-handed boats and race on a course a far more crowded with competitors than is typically encountered in high school races.  Winds were higher than forecast on the Mystic River, which proved a challenge to all.  Irena even capsized, but once the boat was bailed she got right back in and kept sailing - go Irena!  After racing the team had a few hours to tour the museum for a full competitive athletic event + historic visit + field trip + get off campus day. Mr and Ms Scalfano accompanied the team and took the photos.
