Last weekend the team traveled to Galveston to compete in the SEISA Dinghy Champs. With winds ranging between 12-15 mph, the team battled their way to a solid second place finsh. Finishing 35 points ahead of third place Tulane and only 6 points behind first place TAMUG, the team had their best champs performance in several years.

Texas A&M won the regatta with a total of 29 points.
