Lancers sailed in the sun, rain and wind but never lost focus of their goal.
Seniors Malia Libby and Isabel Yeoh sailed to a Varsity II title in the last regatta of the 2016 Interscholastic League of Honolulu (ILH) sailing season.
Libby said, “My last sailing race was incredibly bittersweet. I have been sailing on the team for the past four years, and knowing that my last race was this year made me think of every race that had ever led me to this moment. I have been sailing since before I could walk, and the water feels like a second home to me. Although I’ll miss sailing, I’m glad to be giving new students the opportunity to experience the joys of sailing like I have.”
Libby and Yeoh were awarded 3rd place in the Varsity II C division. This is the third year that the Academy has won a varsity title since the ILH sanctioned sailing in 2003.
Coach Libby said, “These are the most talented young women I’ve ever had the pleasure to coach. All of them did extremely well. I’m very proud of each and every one.”
