VISA Varsity Fleet Champs


Saturday, October 21:

Nineteen VISA teams from eleven schools arrived at Christchurch School on the Rappahannock River to compete for state championship in near perfect conditions. Temperatures were in the low 60's. Barely cloudy blue skies accompanied oscillating westerly winds that were mostly at 5-14mph with one brief afternoon jump to 15 mph. Gusts lent the sporty factor ranging from 12mph to a blustery long hour in the 23-24 range at about midday with a high of 25mph for just a moment. Seas ranged from six inches to a foot and a half.

Despite several delays for breakdowns, teams were able to accomplish 6 races in each division. We had several capsizes, two boats cross the line while on their sides, and a few teams drop out as the day progressed. Four breakdowns were awarded. Overall, the conditions were challenging and and very fun making for some great sailing and stiff competition.

Hampton Roads Academy Team 1 took first place with a remarkable six bullets in B division and 22 points. Christchurch Team 1 came in second with 34 points, and Christchurch Team 3 captured third place.

Many thanks to Christchurch School for their hospitality and a great event. Special thanks to the coaches (who moved marks), to the race committee, and especially to Alex Jacob for serving as PRO and consistently running fair races.
