Andrew, Lauren and I have been sailing and working together for three years at the Down Town Sailing Center in Baltimore, Maryland, where we have both competed in small keelboat racing and taught younger sailors then ourselves how to sail.
They have also sailed together on two PHRF boats, all around the bay, one of which is driven by Andrew and was a close contender for the highpoint award.
Lauren is currently a senior in high school and an aspiring collegiate sailor next year at Washington College.
Andrew has been a member of his high school’s varsity sailing team and is also a senior in high school, heading to Tulane next year where he too will be joining his school’s team. I am currently a freshman at Washington College where I am a member of both the dingy and offshore sailing teams.
