BHS sailors take fifth in Island Cup
LOPEZ ISLAND - The Bainbridge High School sailing team traveled to Lopez Island last weekend for the annual Island Cup Regatta and managed to bring home fifth place.
In total, 29 high school teams competed and five of those teams were from BHS.
Races were held on Saturday in winds ranging from five to 10 knots. The wind was shifty and varied in velocity across the race area.
Sailors also had the added challenge of dodging crab pots in Fisherman’s Bay.
Sunday saw much lighter winds and the racing day was shorter.
Winners of the regatta were from Port Townsend, who won both A fleet and B fleet.
The top BHS team, placing fifth, was Blake Bentzen with Lucas Burzycki sailing in A fleet, and Carissa Block with Karl Anderson in B fleet.
The top A fleet finish from Bainbridge was sixth place by Connor Juckniess and Harry Brelsford, and the top Spartan B fleet finish was that of Jackson McCoy and Will Brown in second place.
The team will return to Sail Sand Point this weekend to begin team racing.
