W&M Sailing Club completes move to Kingsmill in time for home regatta

Members of the William and Mary Sailing Club have added reason to be excited about hosting the upcoming Colony Cup, the Tribe’s lone home regatta of the fall season on Saturday and Sunday. William and Mary hosted the same event out of the Kingsmill Resort marina last season, but this season, it is truly a home regatta for the Tribe.

William and Mary Sailing moved its floating docks and fleet permanently into the James River waters by Kingsmill only about two weeks ago, though planning preceded the official move for more than a year.

“Obviously there’s a lot of gravitas associated with the place,” said Tom Griffiths, the club’s commodore and a senior from New Hampshire. “It was one of those moments last year when the teams came out and were like, ‘Wow, this is quite a spectacle.’ You have a great view from the bluff down to the regatta. It’s a great viewing area. But I think we’re very fortunate to move there. The Kingsmill Yacht Club members have been extremely helpful and welcoming throughout the process.”
