VISA TCIS Fleet Championship


Thursday, October 26:

Five member teams from the Tidewater Conference of Independent Schools (TCIS) arrived at 2:00PM at Mill Creek for their annual Championship to find a beautiful fall afternoon with temperatures in the low 70's. Seas were unfortunately flat, sometimes glass like. Sailors had a brief postponement when they got to the course until the winds picked up from the NE at 4-5mph with gusts to 8mph and sailing commenced. We had another brief postponement on the water with a lull, wind and course changes, and sailing resumed with 4-6mph westerly wind and gusts to 11mph. At 5PM the racing was called for the day.

The TCIS format is 3 division combined division racing. Four races were completed on a W-4 course. One protest was heard resulting in a DSQ for Norfolk Academy for fouling a fellow competitor while jibing.

Norfolk Collegiate captured first place with 59 points, followed by Norfolk Academy with 62 points in second, and Norfolk Academy with 66 points in third.
