This season of frostbiting marked my first as the Director of Adult Programs at Courageous, which meant that running the series passed from Dave's hands into mine.  Over the past 5 years or so, Dave, along with the RC team and so many of you, have really reinvigorated this series, and the proof is in the numbers: for two years now all team spots have been filled and we've averaged 23 boats on the water, when not too long ago getting 16 boats on the water was a good day.   Big thanks to Jesse, Luke, Kip, Carl, and I (along with all our awesome volunteers and substitutes - Andy, Ian, Jack, Nate, Hugh, Rosemary, Steve) for working so hard to uphold Dave's legacy and the progress of the past few years.   Thanks to all for bearing with us through some of the rockier race management moments in this year's transition, and thank you all for showing up, racing your hearts out, and being part of this dynamic community of sailors.  I had a blast, and I hope you all did too!

The 9th annual Richard B. Ross Memorial College Bowl will be sailed in Boston Harbor on October 5, 2013 out of Courageous Sailing in the Charlestown Navy Yard. The regatta was established in 2004 by Judi Ross Zuker to commemorate the life of her husband Richard Ross. A passionate sailor and a believer in the transformative power of education, Richard took great pleasure in cultivating a love for sailing in others. Though his life was tragically lost in the attacks of September 11th, 2001, his family continues to honor his zeal for sailing and education by providing generous support to the Courageous Sailing Youth Program in his name. Since 2009, the Richard B. Ross Memorial College Bowl has been a fixture of the New England college-sailing circuit, and draws some of the areas top teams.  For 2013, teams from Harvard, Tufts, Roger Williams, Brown, Northeastern, UNH, Brandeis, Williams and Bentley are already confirmed.  The one-day event is sailed in the same Rhodes 19's keelboats that serve as the core fleet for the Courageous Summer Youth Program.
