VISA Team Race Championship and Qualifier


Saturday, October 23:

After an hour postponement on shore due to lack of wind, ten teams from six schools commenced raceing at the mouth of the Lafayette River in SW winds of 5-10 mph with oscillations and gusts up to about 13 mph and periods of postponement for no wind.

We were able to complete a full round robin of 10 boats and a final 4 on a digital N course.

Norfolk Academy took first place with 12 wins and 0 losses. Following, Norfolk Collegiate School Team 1 won the tie breaker for second place with Christchurch School Team 1 with 9 wins, 3 losses.

Greatest thanks to PRO Levi Thomson and his crew.
