VISA NCS Team Race Championship


Saturday, October 12:

Fifteen teams from 11 schools arrived on the Lafayette River for the season Championship Team race regatta to find unusaully high tides covering the entire lower parking lot at NYCC and a good portion of the fixed docks. Some cloud cover gave way to partly cloudy skies and a high temperature of 75 degrees. Seas were flat. Light winds NNW at 3-6mph with gusts higher and some oscillations shifting slightly north before dying at 3:00PM when racing was abandoned.

Sailors completed 2 round robins on two digital N courses. Teams were initially seeded into three groups on the two separate courses, with Group 1 on course 1, and groups 2 and 3 on course 2. After the initial rounds were completed teams were reseeded into 4 groups with teams moving up or down based on the initial round results. Lack of wind precluded a third round with more movement.

Final rankings are based on Round 2. Christchurch School Team 1 took first place, followed by Norfolk Collegiate School Team 1 in second, and Norfolk Academy Team 1 in third place.

We are very grateful to all of the volunteers that made this event possible, especially Levi Thomson and David Chase who served as PRO's on the two different courses.
