Austin Ando, at 14 years old, has already accomplished more in sailing than most sailors have in a lifetime.

Ando, of Hobcaw Yacht Club, Prime Sailing Team and Lake Ontario Optimist Team, grabbed second place in the USODA Great Lakes Championships two weekends ago. The championships were held in Cleveland, Ohio at the Edgewater Yacht Club.

He was fresh off a fifth place finish at the USODA National Championships two weeks prior.
