Jake and Nick Win New Zealand Koch Cup Challenge!

Amazing Marlborough Scouting hospitality, great racing, highly competitive, weather (fickle wind, no wind, lightning, hail).  Congrats to Marlborough (Jake and Nick) on winning the Roger Horton Cup and the right to challenge in the Koch cup in USA (Nick is defending champion) and GO ST PETER’S for being a very deserving runner up. Best thing was the fairness and the camaraderie – always a valued part of Scouting. Thanks Marlborough Sea Scouts and Congrats Ben and Matt.

Avery Point Campus in Groton, CT – The Sea Scout New England Flotilla Championships was conducted on July 28 to July 30, 2017 at University of Connecticut (UCONN) Avery Point Campus in Groton, CT.  The thought of cancelling he event was being considered going into the weekend due to the potential of gale force winds. However, the event was held with a hunch for better weather on Sunday.  Fortunately the storm stayed off coast for the most part.  There were nine teams competing and nine official races were held. All teams demonstrated Scout sportsmanship.
