Connor Blouin, assistant coach for St Mary's College of Maryland came out to meet the high school sailors in our area. He was fantastic, assisting in practices on Thurs & Friday afternoons, as well as on the water Saturday and a great debrief after racing with pizza all around. After the debrief of the day, Connor talked about college sailing, looking for the right college, college visits and a little on admissions.
A huge thank you to Connor for spending these 3 days with our sailors!
