The 2021 NJISA fall sailing season got underway with the annual Sailfest Regatta, coinciding with the Sailfest Auxiliary Race at Toms River Yacht Club and the festival on the Island Heights waterfront.
Sixteen teams from 11 schools competed for the Sailfest Trophy, donated in 2005 by the Toms River Rotary Club. It was a beautiful early September day, as temperatures were in the high 70s and the breeze filling in from the southwest. While the early races were shifty, the wind steadied from the southwest at 5 to 10 knots. Overall, 14 W4 races were completed on the day.
Christian Brothers Academy jumped out to an early lead and stayed consistent in both divisions to ultimately win the regatta. Donovan Catholic, Toms River North, Biotech, and Ranney rounded out the top five. It was Delbarton's James O'Gwen and Julien Dietrich who won the A Division by five points over CBA. In B Division, CBA's Colin Guerrera and Nicholas Cuhna won by 12 points.
Thank you to Dave Magno for running the races and Jody Lutz for serving as mark set and patrol. As always, the NJISA thanks TRYC for welcoming high school sailors back for another school year and the BBYRA for supporting scholastic sailing with the FJ fleet.
