9 LISOT Opti Sailors Qualify for All Four International Spring Teams!

Congratulations to the nine LISOT Opti sailors who qualified at the USODA Midwest Champs in Milwaukee (over a very chilly Columbus Day weekend) to represent the USA at all four international regattas this coming Winter/Spring of 2010.

Four LISOT sailors finished in the top 20 in Milwaukee and more than half of the 16 sailors on team LISOT made a US Team - representing 15% of all the spots on US spring teams!

Congratulations to Head Coach Pepe and coach Panic for helping the team reach such a milestone in Milwaukee.
And coaches Marcos Lamas, Graham Merganthaler, Amanda Clark and Jeff Bonanni who helped the team train throughout the the summer and fall.
