A beautiful day on the Lafayette river welcomed sailors to the first regatta of the season today. Winds were NE 4 to 10 with gusts higher with some oscillation serving a challenging calm to the course at times. Seas were flat with beautiful skies. The high school regatta season was kicked off with 23 varsity teams from 14 schools. On the JV course we had 18 teams from 9 schools in a single division.
We accomplished five W-4 races in each of two divisions on the varsity course. Races averaged 15 minutes. Congratulations to Norfolk Collegiate School Team 1 for capturing first place followed by Norfolk Academy Team 1 in second and Christchurch School Team 1 in third place.
JV alternated between W-4 and W-3 courses. Ten single division races were accomplished. First Place went to Nansemond-Suffolk Academy, followed by Norfolk Academy Team 1 in second place and Norfolk Academy Team 3 in third place.
A big thank you to our PRO's Levi Thompson for varsity, and Chris Pfrang for JV.
