The 2023 NJISA Spring Season got officially underway with the annual Icebreaker Regatta at Toms River Yacht Club. The good news is that the weather was far from freezing and the 16 teams from 10 schools enjoyed temperatures in the low-50s and partly sunny skies. The breeze started from a northwest direction at 8-12 knots, but slowly went more west and remained puffy throughout the day.
Christian Brothers Academy's first team had a consistent day to propel the Colts to a nine-point victory over second place Donovan Catholic. CBA's second team finished in a solid third place, with Summit and CBA's third team finishing fourth and fifth. CBA's Christopher Small and Nicholas Cunha won the A Division, two points ahead of CBA's Bryce Vitiello and Luke Pennisi. CBA's Noah Kuzloski and Kyle Lombardino topped the B Division with Donovan's Kevin Brooksbank and Liam Marcell finishing second.
Thank you to Brian Hull for serving as race committee and Jason Lutz for running the mark boat. As always, thank you to TRYC for having high school sailing back for another season and to the BBYRA for continuing to partner with the NJISA on the FJ fleet.
