Barkow Leads Rolex Women's Keelboat Champs
 Haeger/Roble/Shea in Ninth 
Barkow claims this is the deepest competition she has experienced in the US Sailing International Keelboat Women's Event in Rochester, NY. Barkow returns to the biennial event after an absence the last time around. She is a three-time champ in this event. Barkow leads over past Olympian Cronin, past Rolex Yachtswoman Sertl and past gold medalist Anna Tunnicliffe. College sailors sit in the top ten. The event ends Thursday.

High School and College Sailing begins in Two Weeks
 from Scuttlebutt 


Raising kids empowers you to do things you never imagined. During this time, double Olympic medalist JJ Fetter Isler added High School Coach to her list of achievements. And just like all parents, she wanted to see her stable of sailors succeed. Through her observations, she wrote a guide, 'Getting the most out of High School sailing', to provide advice for sailors who want to maximize their high school sailing experience.


And for those sailors that take their game to collegiate competition, Brooke Thompson sought to help them make the transition. While competing on the St. Mary's College of Maryland sailing team, Thompson had one of those "if I only knew then what I know now" moments, and decided to write a manual, 'High School to College Crewing Guide', to help crews make the transition to college sailing. Said Thompson:


"In my opinion, high school sailing teaches crews most of the skills they need to know, but college sailing fine-tunes and expands on those things.

College crews come from a huge range of experience levels and backgrounds, but what they have in common is that everyone makes changes along the way to adapt. This guide is an attempt to pinpoint some of the bigger reasons that contribute to this transition and list all the little details that go a long with it."


With the fall season to commence for High School and College sailing, these two guides may prove invaluable:
