VISA HCS/Heritage Fleet Race


Saturday, March 11:

For our first regatta of the season, we had a blustery 47 degree F afternoon on Mill Creek with report time pushed to noon to allow the wind to settle. Sailors competed in NW winds in the high teens up to 20 mph with gusts in the high 20's. Seas were lively at about a 2' trough and. The water temp was around 50 degrees F. Skies were overcast.

The regatta completed 4 combined-division races on a windward-leeward course with 8 boats standing by the finish of the last race.

Congratulations to Hampton Roads Academy for taking first place under demanding conditions. Second place was captured by the combined Norfolk Academy/Norfolk Collegiate team. Grafton High School took the third place.

Greatest thanks are due to Alan Bomar (PRO) and the scoring crew for enduring a cold wet windy afternoon on the committee boat and as always, for running fair races, as well as to the coaches who served as much needed safety boats.
