#TeamRacing - Afloat’s Sailor of the Month for March is competing with his Trinity College teammates at the Detroit Cup in the USA this week.

Richard Roberts joins fellow TCD helmsmen Scott Flanigan and Dan Gill on the Plain Sailing team at the 10th anniversary of the Bayview Yacht Club team racing event, which starts tomorrow (Thursday 24 August) with the round robin portion.

Eight skippers and crews representing five nations will take part in the four-day competition that marks the second stage of the USA Grand Slam series, as Scuttlebutt Sailing News reports.

The fleet includes defending champion Harry Price and his DownUnder Racing team from Sydney, Australia, alongside Murray Jones and Cameron Seagreen – currently ranked sixth in the world team racing stakes.
