Sailors Sixth in Mid-Atlantic Regatta
Norfolk Collegiate’s sailors couldn’t build on a strong first day of sailing and finished sixth in the ten-team Mid-Atlantic Scholastic Sailing Association Fall Team Championship held Saturday and Sunday in the waters off Norfolk.
The Oaks won seven of nine races in light air on Saturday in matches that pit three boats from two schools racing head to head. But in windy conditions on Sunday, they could muster only two wins.
Broadneck won the regatta with 16 wins followed by Annapolis, Christchurch, Norfolk Academy, Severn, and then Norfolk Collegiate. Racing started about 9 a.m. Saturday and concluded Sunday afternoon.
Earlier, Layne, Phillips, and Vail were named first-team All-TCIS. The Oaks finished second to Norfolk Academy in the TCIS Championship earlier in the week.
