Epic Racing Team Takes WIM Title  
Meg Six sails in Korea
Steph Roble's team got the job done while Roble sails in Korea in the Etchells Worlds due to delayed scheduling on the part of the Women's International Matchracing Association.The boat was skippered by Chicago's Maggie Shea (who instructed at this year's ILYA Women's and Girls' Clinic) with Geneva's Meg Six on board. The team finished fifth in this event but with the final placing of other teams at this event, Epic Racing took the overall title and a hoped-for $20,000. BUT they were informed that due to the skipper's absence the money would roll over to 2016. But the title is THEIRS!!! And no one could be happier than the team which also carried Sally Barkow at one event. This is a TEAM which has been the theme of presentations given by Roble and Shea at our clinics. If you have the opportunity to hear Roble, Barkow or Shea speak, the essence of teamwork always comes to the forefront. Congrats!The team shown above is , ,,
