USA Red Team wins XXX Trofeo Marco Rizzotti International Team Race Cup

The USA Red Team from Lakewood Yacht Club (GYA Club) in Seabrook, TX wins the XXX Trofeo Marco Rizzotti International Team Race Cup (June 3-5, 2016). They earned an invitation to compete in Venice, Italy by winning the USODA Team Race Mid-Winter Championship in January 2016.

The awards ceremony was pretty emotional for everyone in the audience and those watching the live stream, as they presented Team USA Red with the winning trophy. They were holding the American flag and their trophies while the National Anthem was playing and a dozen jets flew over…quite a  spectacular ceremony for these 13 & 14 year old sailors!
