Greenhill Seventh Grader Qualifies for International Sailing Competition
Greenhill student, Conrad Jacobsen ’28 recently qualified to represent Team USA, for ages 15 and under, in an international sailing competition that he will compete in Italy over the Easter holiday in April. Conrad has achieved his goal to sail in the Lake Garda regatta, the largest optimist regatta in the world, with 1,500 boats competing. It’s the pinnacle competition of optimist sailing. Also, this summer he sailed in the British National regatta in Scotland and placed 12th overall.
Conrad has worked really hard to get to this level of competition, with a lot of hours in treacherous conditions — some days borderline dangerous.
