Dedication of Bowdoin Sailing Team’s New Fleet

The Bowdoin College Sailing Team’s fleet of a dozen new boats was dedicated Friday evening at Bethel Point. The Sailing Team, coach Frank Pizzo and Ashmead White Director of Athletics Jeff Ward (pictured) took part in the christening ceremony.

This weekend’s Barnett Regatta was named in memory of Nick Barnett ’11, who was killed in a car accident during the 2007 Thanksgiving break. At the ceremony, Nick’s father, Chris Barnett, spoke of the community created by the Sailing Team.
