NEW HAVEN, Conn. – Junior captain Graham Landy has been leading the No. 2 Yale coed sailing team through a long post season in training for the upcoming Team Race National Championship and Coed Dinghy National Championship.
His teammates elected Landy captain in late January at the Ray Tompkins House. Since then, Landy has demonstrated his leadership throughout the spring season both on and off the water.
Landy had made an impact on the team since his freshman year. After winning B division at the 2012 Coed Dinghy National Championship, he was named an All-American skipper. He was also named the New England Rookie of the Year.
Landy continued his success after his impressive freshman year, having won A division at almost every major intersectional in college sailing: the Danmark, the Harry Anderson, the Hood Trophy, the Hoyt, the St. Mary's Intersectional, the ICSA Semifinals and the Truxtum Umsted. Last year he was a key member of the team that won the 2013 Team Race National Championship. This year he was recently named New England Sailor of the Year.
Coach Bill Healy commented on Landy's captainship, "Graham's performance on the water really pushes to whole team to work harder. He is a dedicated sailor in practice and competition."
With this leadership, the Bulldogs look to continue their training before heading down to St. Mary's to compete for another national championship.
