Junior sailor Ellie Lienert (Brunswick, Maine/Brunswick) is this week's Shorewoman of the Week. Lienert helped the sailing team qualify for the War Memorial - the MAISA Fall Co-Ed Dinghy Championships - for the first time in three years thanks to the team's fourth-place overall finish at the Luce Regatta this weekend.
Lienert, a crew, sailed with skipper Will Sunkler in A Division, where they placed third. They finished in the top five in seven of the division's 15 races. The top three finishing teams at the Luce who hadn't already qualified for the War Memorial secured the 13th, 14th, and 15th, bids for the 18-team War Memorial.
