Oakcliff SapGrad Elizabeth Shaw (Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada) won the June Invitational Clinegatta with six wins and one loss overcoming the high-ranking competition this weekend.

Shaw was happy that her team was able to push through the 'light and difficult' conditions that they were presented with during both Saturday and Sunday.

'I'm really proud of my team. I've spent so much time focused on international race management. It was a great feeling to be back on the other side of the game, and of course to be successful,' said Shaw.

Shaw graduated from Oakcliff’s Sapling program last summer and is back this summer to continue her quest in match racing. She is very appreciative of all the hard work that Oakcliff and their volunteers have put in over the past two years.

Besides Shaw, there were also two Oakcliff Saplings, Doug Reynolds (Great Neck, NY) and Charlie Lalumiere (Falmouth, ME) aboard the boat with Shaw during the regatta.
