There will be no Olympic bid for our two outstanding teams. Team Seven and RSS sailing sailed valiently but they were a few races short  in the windy, cold English waters. The trials were held over the weekend with only four teams competing. Roble was eliminated by Tunnicliffe in the first round. Barkow and Tunnicliffe held an exciting finals with Tunnicliffe the first to win 6 races. Congratulations to both our teams! We are so proud of you!
