The weekend of February 16, Joseph Dugas, 7th grade, and Logan Moran, 8th grade, had a very intense race at Jensen Beach when they competed in the Midwinter Championship. This is where good sailors go to race for a few days. At the race about 115 people go sailing against one another. The two GBMS students represented the Fairhope Yacht Club. Many good sailors attended this race, so Joseph and Logan had some competition. 

“It was a very tough race and it was our first race,” Joseph stated. Joseph and Logan rode the c420, which is a two man sailboat. This event had multiple races. If someone achieved a high ranking, they could move on and race the better sailors. The pair placed 101st out of 115. That’s not too bad for their first race. Racing wasn’t all the two had to do. Logan and Joseph had to wake up at 6, set the sailboat up, race for four hours, and when it was over, de rig the sail boat. De rigging a sail boat is where somebody ties the boat up and cleans it. 

Sailing isnt an easy sport to learn. It employs the wind to propel the boat forward over a chosen course. Sailing is a recreational sport people can do anywhere, anytime as long as there is water. Logan and Joseph worked hard and long hours for their first race showing dedication to their sport.  

During the race, the pair had a few challenges, including the wind not going their way and having to adjust the sail boat accordingly.
