Although racing was close throughout, Newport Harbor edged out Point Loma to win their second Spring National Title of 2009.
Newport Harbor dominated the event, no surprise as they have placed in the top three for five years in a row now, winning in 2005, 2007, and now 2009. The PCISA district, comprised mainly of California schools, swept the event, with Cathedral Catholic and Corona del Mar in 2nd and 3rd respectively, finishing strong the last day to oust local favorites Sarasota(4th) and Plant (5th).
Congratulations to the St Edwards High School team from Vero Beach Florida on their 25 point victory.
Congratulations to the Christchurch School, Christchurch, VA on a DOMINATING performance by winning 17 of 24 races and 88 points ahead of second place Monsignor Donovan HS, Toms River , NJ. The regatta was well represented with twelve different states of the twenty schools sailing.
36 competitors were greeted with fabulous but chilly sailing conditions throughout the regatta. Winds ranged from 20 knots for Friday’s practice races to 5 to 15 knots for the entire event. The sailors saw the complete package of winds. Northerlies prevailed on Saturday and Southerlies on Sunday. Tides became a factor when the flood hit hard around noon making for long legs against the tide and short fetches with the current that strengthened throughout the day. Air temps were in the mid 50’s – about the same as the water.
Congratulations to St. George's on their victory.
