“This year's SCOR is the first spring season opportunity for us to race other colleges," says NC State Offshore captain Cameron Gough (Jr., Warrington, UK). "We've been training extensively and are coming off of a strong fall season showing at both the Navy Small Keelboat Invitational, as well as the Larchmont (NY) Intercollegiate Offshore Regatta where we finished 2nd in our division."

"In our fourth year of having an offshore program, the sailors have really stepped up both their training and performance,” said NC State head coach Dana Magliola. “We're really excited to see what's in store for this talented roster of keelboat sailors.” 

The NC State team will sail the 1-Design-35 sailboat Warhorse in this weekend's regatta.
