Multiple races were started but only one was completed for the ILCA 7 Division on day 1 of the 2021 Healy Trophy thanks to a tricky southeasterly that never fully settled in. Duncan Craine of Weston High School took the bullet on Saturday with Harrison Stevens of Greens Farms Academy and Robbie Upton of Fairfield Prep not far behind.
After completing just one race on day 1 of the 2021 Healy, sailors in the ILCA 7 division were blessed with a moderate westerly to start the day that gradually escalated into some full-on hiking conditions which led to eight races being run over the course of day 2.
The action at the top of the fleet was incredibly exciting, with Harrison Stevens of Greens Farms Academy taking the championship thanks to a bullet in the final race that put him one point ahead of Weston High School's Duncan Craine. The duel between these two throughout the weekend was a joy to watch and incredibly impressive, as the winner of each race was always one of them. Olin Guck of Barrington High School took the third spot on the podium after a fantastic performance which saw him finish ahead of either Duncan or Harrison on multiple occasions.
Many thanks go to Norwalk Yacht Club, particularly their Sailing Director Sean Palizza for hosting a fantastic championship event. The many parents and coaches that volunteered to help run the races deserve thanks as well. Special recognition goes to the parent volunteers from Fairfield Prep, Lincoln Academy, and Portsmouth Abbey who helped Sean and Regatta Chair Henry Millette run the RC boat on both days.
