On Saturday, Oct. 24, 2015 sailors representing 15 schools met at Norfolk Yacht and Country Club for the VISA Team Race Championship with both 2x2 and 3x3 regattas. Conditions were favorable with winds of 5-10 mph and higher gusts out of the SE, and seas with a very light chop. Current down the Lafayette River was strong adding to start and mark rounding challenge on the 2x2 course.

Seven teams competed in a full 3x3 round robin with the top four and bottom three separating for participation in an additional round. The top two and bottom two, of the top 4, then completed "best of" rounds. Scores are cumulative, but teams were ranked in groups as noted above. Norfolk Collegiate won the 3x3 regatta followed by Norfolk Academy and Christchurch School.

Techscore 3x3 was modified to accommodate the 2x2 competition, and the spreadsheet with actual finishes can be found on the regatta notice board @ First place in the regatta was taken by Nansemond Suffolk Academy, followed by Norfolk Collegiate School, and Grafton High School.
