Eleven schools comprising of 17 teams took part in the 2016 NJISA Girls Championship on Wednesday afternoon at Toms River Yacht Club. The young ladies were greeted with a beautiful easterly breeze at eight to 12 knots with the racing beginning just after 4:00 p.m. Amidst the multiple breakdowns, the committee was able to fire off seven quality W4 races over the course of two and a half hours.
Congratulations to Southern Regional High School's Emily and Dana Haig for winning the event by 13 points. The Haig sisters won four of the day's races- including the first three- to lock down the regatta. League-newcomer Trinity Hall was second and the Academy of Notre Dame (PA) finished third. The top-five was rounded out by Donovan Catholic and Rumson-Fair Haven.
Many thanks to the boys from Christian Brothers Academy, who served on the race committee, Dave Magno for tending to the course, and Roy Wilkins for anchoring Sweet Jane on station as the RC boat. As always, thank you to Toms River Yacht Club and Ocean County College for their facilities and fleet.
With nearly forty girls on hand to compete, it proves that the NJISA is chock-full of girl power. Nice sailing, ladies!
