Team places eighth in National Team Race Championship in Massachusetts.

Against 12 other schools from around the country, many of them private schools, the Bainbridge sailing team made the most of their opportunity, scoring an eighth-place finish at the National Team Race Championship at Vineyard Haven Yacht Club in Martha’s Vineyard, Mass.

It’s the best finish ever by a team out of the Northwest District.

On Saturday, the races were stop and go thanks to some light wind and calm conditions.

Thirty-two races were completed, with Bainbridge earning a 2-3 record despite having trouble with their starts.

They finished the day in a three-way tie for seventh place with The Hotchkiss School from Connecticut and St. Georges School from Rhode Island.

On Sunday, after waiting for several more hours to get a decent wind, the qualifying round-robin was suspended and the scores taken from the 32 races were used to determine a final bracket for a sail-off. The first team to win two races would win their matchup.

Thanks to their scores, Bainbridge went against Newport Harbor High from California for seventh place, but Newport Harbor won their races by the scores of 8-13 and 6-15.

Despite the loss, the team – made up of captains Carl Shorett and Pat Layton, Adrian Mason, Dylan Sievertson, Madeline Jackson, Amy Allen, Emma Hartmann and Haley Lane – bettered last year’s finish of 12th place.

Antilles High from the U.S. Virgin Islands won the Baker Trophy with an undefeated record.

For those who are interested in meeting and supporting the sailing team, they’ll host a car wash tomorrow at the Chevron at the corner of 305 and High School Road from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Tickets are $7 and will be sold at the wash itself.
