Congratulations to the winners from Newport Harbor H.S.


The top four finishers in the 1999 ISSA Doublehanded Championship (Mallory) were California high schools, the top three within 18 points of each other after 14 races in each of two divisions. Racing at Grosse Pointe YC in CFJs supplied by local clubs, the winning University of San Diego HS team outpaced the best non-California school by almost 100 points.


Two days of a smashing northeasterly and driving rain marked the 1998 ISSA National High School Sailing Nationals as a regatta to remember. It also marked firsts for both winners. Neither Milton Academy (MA) which won the Doublehandeds for the Mallory Trophy nor Southern Regional (NJ)l in the Singlehandeds (Cressy) had ever won either championship in all their history.
