The Black River Sailing Team enjoyed a great weekend (Oct 21st-22nd ) at the Michigan State Championships in Pontiac Michigan. The team comprised of Eden Nykamp, Chris Heideman, Jack Hemmelgarn, Duncan Elmer, Alden Gort, and Will Voss competed in the 420 Regatta (two-person boat) and the Laser Regatta (singlehanded boat). Medal winners included Chris Heideman (State Champ - Laser Radial), Eden Nykamp (2nd place - Laser Radial) and Jack Hemmelgarn (State Champ - Laser Full). The Black River Sailing Team is currently ranked the 5th best team in the Midwest. Congratulations to the Black River Sailing Team.
