out for Westlawn Institute’s sixth annual student meet—The Maryland Meet.
Held at Westlawn Institute’s parent company, ABYC, in Annapolis, Maryland, the
event provided students with the opportunity to meet each other and their instruc-
tors and to further their knowledge of boat design.
After morning coffee and breakfast, the guests boarded a bus for a quick ride to the
U.S. Naval Academy. There, Naval Academy grad, Gavin O’Hare guided the group on

the sailing program building and boats, to typical dorm rooms. Gavin made special
arrangements for entry to the Rickover building (the engineering building), where

wind tunnels and the incredibly detailed and enormous (over 16 ft. long) cutaway
model of the destroyer USS Ager-
holm (DD-826) on deck 2.
From the Rickover building, the
Westlawn crew headed to the Na-
