Team race victories are undoubtedly a team effort. However, when asked about the same to Michael Menninger, the team captain of St. Francis Yacht Club, this is what he had to say. He gave credit to those who were miles away at the time of regatta yet made the team prepare for one of the highly competitive keelboat team race regattas of the country. He felt that the credit should ideally go to people who were not physically present there, but made the team give its best. Menninger said that the regatta gave them reps as a team, which made things more real. They got a few three on three practices through kites and other things.
