Four Dragon sailors took third place at the National Keelboat Invitational in St. Petersburg, Florida, on Dec. 14-15, 2019, after qualifying for the lone birth to represent New England in the contest.

The four sailors were (pictured above from left to right): Tim Hibben ’23, Miles Bailey ’21, Hayden Earl ’21, and Tucker Ballou ’22.

"Competing in a boat entirely unfamiliar to them, they showed great speed and consistent boat handling," Athletics Director Rachel Horn said of the SG sailors. "In shift and unpredictable conditions, they minimized their errors and capitalized on the mistakes of others. As a result of their hard work, they came away with a third place podium finish."
