Thirteen high school sailing teams from the NJISA, NYISA-SE and NYISA-NW leagues of MASSA met at SUNY Maritime for their spring intersectional regatta.
Winter weather lingered on as the sailors ventured onto the East River to sail in 10-15 mph northeasterly breeze with chilling temperatures and intermittent periods of snow. The ever present East River current provided its usual challenges to teams as they also dealt with the wind’s mild oscillations and velocity changes.
Six races were completed in each division. W4 and W3 courses were sailed in each set. No protests were formally filed.
The NJISA teams had a strong showing, placing in all top four positions. The Christina Brothers Academy Colts finished in first place with 40 points. The Southern Regional Rams finished the day with 53 points and the Summit Hilltoppers were close behind them with 56 points.
Many thanks to SUNY Maritime dinghy sailing team head coach Zach Runci and SUNY Maritime waterfront director Rob Crafa for hosting the event. SUNY Maritime sailing team members Kyle Comerford (PRO) with John Lawless, Maura Neeley, Maura King and Harry Daghir did a great job running the regatta and adding some color commentary of the racing over the VHF radio for those who were tuned in to the airwaves.

The following chart shows the relative rank of the teams as of the race indicated. Note that the races are ordered by number, then division, which may not represent the order in which the races were actually sailed.
The first place team as of a given race will always be at the top of the chart. The spacing from one team to the next shows relative gains/losses made from one race to the next. You may hover over the data points to display the total score as of that race.
