October 15, 2014 Sailing, York River

Budding Yachtsman

Shayna Maust took her beau Oliver Ross to lunch on their second anniversary of dating, and then she surprised him with a sail on the York River. They’re juniors at Christopher Newport University, where he took a break from the sailing team to coach his Smithfield High School sailing team, one of the few such sports at a public school in Virginia. Oliver sailed Bemis 420s in the Nationals qualifier in Annapolis and advanced to the next round in Marblehead, Mass. “My dream is to sail the Volvo race around the world, which is now in leg one.” Behind the wheel, Oliver had all the poise of a world yachtsman.
