BHS takes fourth in Seattle regatta
SEATTLE - The Bainbridge High sailing team competed in the first team racing regatta of the season on April 12 at Sail Sand Point on Lake Washington.
BHS sailors performed well at the regatta, under near perfect conditions. The breeze was steady at around 10 knots, and the sun shone all weekend.
The top finish was fourth place for the team of Jackson McCoy and Harry Brelsford, Stasi Burzycki and Kat Smith/Cole Garthwaite, Maddie Walker and Francine Brownell.
The team originally tied for third place, but lost the tiebreaker to Sehome High School.
Bainbridge demonstrated the depth and balance across the team by also taking fifth and sixth places in the Gold Fleet, or upper division. In the Silver Fleet, Nels Challinor and Harry Saliba/Diana Curtis, Hannah Harrison and Olivia Mitchell/Cole Garthwaite and Karl Anderson and Charlie Snapp took first place out of six teams.
“Team” racing differs from the more familiar “fleet” racing, in which the first boat to finish wins. Each team is comprised of three boats with six sailors who compete head-to-head against three boats of another team. The team race winner is determined by the combined finishing places of the team’s three boats.
The team will host the next regatta of the season at Silverdale Waterfront Park this weekend.
