Twelve NJ high school sailing teams arrived at TRYC with ominous skies in the background that never produced the rain and wind that was forecast the day before. Under gray skies and occasional drizzle, the fleet sailed in 7-10 mph NE to ENE winds that provided a great day of racing. Each division sailed W4 and W3 courses each set, for a total of 14 races for the day.
The battle for the NJ State High School Sailing Championship Elizabeth Olsen perpetual trophy was close right down to the last few races. The day ended in a 47 point tie between the Christina Brothers Academy Colts and the Ranney School Panthers with the tie-breaker going to Christian Brothers Academy for the win. The Rumson-Fairhaven Bulldogs rounded out the top three with 55 points and the Southern Regional Rams only one point behind them in 4th with 56 points.
John King served as the on-the-water judge and Harry Foote came to chair the protest committee. One protest was filed, but was withdrawn; thank you to all the teams for giving the protest committee little to do. Jason Lutz served as the dock-side scorekeeper and helped keep scores current throughout the day. Thanks to all the sailors, coaches families and friends of high school sailing that came out in spite of the weather forecast in support of high school sailing.
As always, thank you to Toms River Yacht and Ocean County College for the use of their facilities and fleet of boats.
Congratulations to the CBA Colts for their back-to-back 2015 and 2016 wins of this regatta!
