 Renovation for a Sailing Renaissance

"The Naval Academy has used sail training to develop the skills of midshipmen since 1845 when the Academy was founded. But in modern times, relatively few of the 4,100 midshipman at the Academy spend more than a couple days in a sailboat. Now a new plan is being phased in: all midshipmen will be required to become qualified to skipper a Colgate 26, and in the summer months every midshipman will complete an offshore cruise on one of the 44-footers.
