Eight New Jersey schools making up 17 teams participated in the 2017 New Jersey Girls' Championship at Toms River Yacht Club. The ladies were greeted with easterly breeze at eight to 12 knots, which allowed for eight W4 races to be sailed in three hours.
Congratulations to Southern Regional's Emily Haig & Dana Haig for winning the 2017 title. This is the third consecutive year that Emily Haig has been the winning skipper and second straight year that her younger sister, Dana, has crewed for her.
Trinity Hall #1 finished runners-up, while Summit, Trinity Hall #2 and Donovan Catholic #2 rounded out the top five.
As tradition, the all-boys team from Christian Brothers Academy manned the race committee with assistance from CBA coach Jason Lutz as PRO and mark boat. Many thanks to Toms River Yacht Club and Ocean County College for continuing to support high school sailing in New Jersey.
Congratulations to all the ladies who sailed for demonstrating that New Jersey high school sailing has plenty of girl power!
