Newport, RI - Teams arrived to find sunshine and a light northerly. Despite the forecast of a dying breeze, the RC started as quickly as they could eager to get in some racing before the breeze shut off. Thankfully, it never did. Instead it shifted to the sea breeze and built in intensity of the course of the day. The changing conditions did not bother the Brunswick School Bruins, who won the first two races and never looked back, despite a fierce charge by the Hotchkiss School. In the end, Brunswick, Hotchkiss, St George's and Manchester-Essex RHS qualified to represent NESSA at the ISSA Fleet Racing Nationals for the Clifford Mallory Trophy May 8-10th at the US Naval Academy in Annapolis, MD. Jack Perkin '17 & Andrew Kjorlien '15 (Brunswick School) won A-Division. Parker Loftus '16 with Sarah Noyes '15 and Caroline Bracken '15 (Tabor Academy) won B-Division.
Much thanks to the St. Georges' head coach Roy Williams and his sailing staff, Kate Wilson (Middletown HS/Rogers HS), Chris Conley (Tabor Academy), Andrew Nugnes (NESSA President), and Chris Crain (NESSA VP) for running the races and to Judges John Mooney, Katie Mooney, and Oakley Jones for helping the competitors navigate their disputes.
