MASSA Silver Team Championship


Saturday, April 24:

The first MASSA Silver Spring Team Race Championship opened with a chalk talk by Gary Bodie followed by a Q & A session and a bit of delay on land waiting for the wind to fill in. The fleet then chased a bit of breeze, and again ended up in postponement on land through lunch. The afternoon brought just under two hours of perfect 6-9 mph wind with gusts to 11 mph during which the fleet completed a full round robin of 10 races. After yet another postponement on the water, racing was called for the day.

At the conclusion of Saturday's racing, Stony Brook School was leading with 4 wins/0 losses followed by Norfolk Academy in second place with 3 wins/1 loss, and Broadneck High School in third place with 2 wins/2 losses.

Sunday, April 25:

Sunday morning brought perfect conditions with brisk temperatures in the high 50's to low 60's and oscillating northwesterly winds at 12-18mph with gusts higher. Skies were overcast with sun peaking through around midday. Seas varied from choppy to 1 foot waves.

Three more 10 race round robins and a sailoff tie-breaker between the top 2 teams were completed for a regatta total of 41 races. Great competition and sportsmanship resulted in Stony Brook School taking first place followed by Norfolk Academy in second, and Broadneck High School in third place.

We are very grateful for the honor of having Gary Bodie serve as PRO for the event. Our thanks to the assorted volunteers from YSV and Poquoson High School Sailing that comprised the rest of the race committee, and especially to the former VISA sailors who came back to umpire.
