Proud parents Ken Comerford and Jennifer Flake enjoyed seeing their eldest Kyle on the podium along with this teammates from SUNY Maritime College as they accepted the “Kennedy Cup” trophy. The trophy is actually the John F. Kennedy Memorial Trophy, which was presented to the U.S. Naval Academy in 1965 by Mr. C. Robert Yeager on behalf of the many friends of the late President. President Kennedy’s love for sailing is perpetuated in the annual competition for the trophy, which represents the National Collegiate Large Yacht Championship. 

The regatta, sailed on Navy 44s, represents some of the most talented big boat sailors at the collegiate level. SUNY Maritime’s team finished in first place, ahead of the Naval Academy’s Offshore Team, with the Coast Guard Academy’s team in 3rd place. Kyle and his younger brother Will found themselves in 1st and 2nd place, representing SUNY Maritime College and College of Charleston respectively, at the recent McMillan Cup.
