Monarch Sailors Host Szambecki Team Race This Weekend
By ODU Athletics
The event is widely regarded as one of the most competitive team race events prior to the North American Championships which are held at the end of May. In fact, the race is a final "tune-up" for the MAISA (Mid Atlantic Intercollegiate Sailing Association) Team Race Championships in April, which will qualify the top-two finishers for the nationals.
The team race is named in honor of Aaron Szambecki, a member of the Old Dominion class of 1996 and a former team captain and All-American sailor for the Monarchs.
