NORFOLK, Va. -  The ODU Sailing Team prepares to head to Navy this weekend to compete in the fall Coed conference championships.

As a top 20 nationally ranked team and No. 6 in the conference, the Monarchs will compete against division rivals Georgetown, St Mary’s, Navy, George Washington University, and Hobart and William Smith Colleges.
