NESSA Single Handed Championship (Healy) - ILCA 6

Summary

Saturday, September 25:

Multiple races were started but none were completed for the ILCA 6 Division on day 1 of the 2021 Healy Trophy thanks to a tricky southeasterly that never fully settled in.

Sunday, September 26:

After completing zero races on day 1 of the 2021 Healy, sailors in the ILCA 6 division were blessed with a moderate westerly to start the day that gradually escalated into some full-on hiking conditions that made for a total of eight races with compelling action.

This one came down to the wire at the top of the fleet with two-time defending champion Chapman Petersen of The Hotchkiss School winning a tiebreaker with The Brunswick School's Ben Sheppard thanks to a bullet in the final race. That's three for three at the Healy for Chapman to cap off his time racing Lasers in NESSA. Weston High School's Antonio Henri Maya-LeFort rounded out the podium finishers with an impressive performance.

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.

Note: LOP penalty has been changed in the new ISSA PR to +10 pts, but Tech Score has not been adjusted yet. Anyone with a LOP penalty should have 10 pts subtracted from their score.
