Looking to make some noise in his first college event sailing the Laser and representing Tulane University, Lettsome entered into the event that had a fleet of 41 boats.
A total of 14 races were sailed.
According to a press release from the Royal BVI Yacht Club, shifty breeze throughout the weekend, combined with a tricky current, made for a dynamic racecourse and eight races were sailed on day one and a further six on the second day.
Lettsome posted consistent results throughout the weekend including six top 10 finishes.
The young sailor’s coach, Charles Higgins, commented; "To finish seventh in the nation as a freshman is quite remarkable and makes us hungry for this discipline next fall and beyond."
Lettsome has also been representing Tulane in the two-handed team racing divisons at regular meets with other universities.
