Getting Ready for the Worlds

A team of Kings Point Midshipman will head to Miami in April to compete for one of sailing's most prestigious trophies in what is arguably the most competitive fleet in sailing. The Farr 40 is a high performance one-design class, meaning that all boats are equal. Kings Point was the first collegiate team to compete in the prestigious class with two boats participating in the 2006 world championship. These two boats, Nimbus and Solution, finished 33rd and 35th in a fleet of 38 boats, proving to be competitive at the highest level of the sport. The team will look to improve upon their 2006 results this spring in Miami. Stay tuned for more updates.
