VISA Poquoson Fleet Race Regatta


Saturday, September 16:

On a perfect 80 degree, cloudless blue sky September day, 18 teams from 12 schools met at Norfolk Yacht on the Lafayette River. Seas were flat, and 5-10 mph westerly winds gusted to from about 7-14 mph with some mild oscillations midday.

First warning was at 9:10AM. The race committee served up 6 W-4 races in each of two divisions with racing completed by 2:15PM. Norfolk Academy Team 1 ran away with first place with a respectable 28 points. They were followed by Christchurch School Team 1 in second with 51 points. Following closely behind, Hampton Roads Academy won the tie breaker for third place with 58 points against Norfolk Collegiate School Team 2.

Many thanks to the race committee for a day of solid racing, and especially to PRO Joe Kilgore.
