VISA HCS Fleet Race Regatta


Saturday, September 28:

Eighteen teams from 14 schools gathered on Fort Monroe to compete on Mill Creek. Morning overcast skies gave way to blazing sunlight combined with little breeze and temperatures in the mid 80's, making for a long hot stiff, but fun, day on the water. Morning breezes were ENE 3-7 mph with gusts to 10 mph, slowing considerably to NE 2-3 when racing was abandoned.

Two divisions each completed 4 W-4 races followed by 2 W-2 races. Races averaged 20 minutes long. A seventh A division race was sailed and scored, but had to be thrown out because a seventh B race was unable to be completed.

Norfolk Academy Team 1 took first place. Behind by only one point, in second place was Norfolk Collegiate School Team 1, followed by Poquoson High School Team 1 in third place.

Many thanks to Alan Bomar for serving as PRO, and not leaving anything on the water.
