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.

DSC_1412Victor Layne, Darden Purrington, and Dreugh Phillips skippered for the Oaks while Nick Baker, Daniel Vail, Sarah Smith, and Ellie Maus were the crews.

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.
