They are the Champions!

The Baldwin Cup draws many champion sailors, making the competition all the more intense.  2015 World Championship teammates Justin Law and Michael Menninger are back again sailing for NHYC Team Thunder while teaming up against former 2015 World Championship teammate Tyler Sinks, who is sailing for SDYC.  Also on the water is past world champion, Andy Cornah (Team GBR: 2011, runner up 2015) sailing for Itchenor SC.  Cornah has competed in the BCTR in the past for the Royal Thames YC.  This year he is joining Itchenor SC in their debut appearance at this regatta. USA 2007 & 2009 World Championship teammates Clay Bischoff  and Peter Levesque will find each other on opposing team as they sail for Larchmont and NYYC respectively.

Former ISAF Youth World Championship Joel Hanneman has a storied team racing career, and has helped BOTH New York Yacht Club and Seawanhaka Corinthian to four Baldwin victories.  This makes him the winning-est Baldwin Cup sailor.

Knowing that all the former Baldwin champion Clubs are back again this year means competition for the Cup will be fiercer than ever! Stay tuned for team rosters, which will include the many other former College Sailors of the Year, All-Americans, and US Sailing Team members.
