Sailors finish 12th at nationals

The team got to see and experience the New Orleans culture.

Bainbridge High School was one of twelve schools in the country selected to participate in the prestigious regatta known as the National Team Racing Championships over Memorial Day weekend.

The event was held at Lake Ponchartrain at the distinguished Southern Yacht Club in New Orleans, the second oldest yacht club in the United States.

The club, whose facilities were completely destroyed when Hurricane Katrina hit in August 2005, now operates from a temporary clubhouse, and has been active in hosting larger regattas.
