Former BHS duo power UW team

SEATTLE - The University of Washington sailing team has qualified for ICSA Team and Co-ed Fleet Race Nationals this year, assisted by two former Bainbridge High School sailors.

Kris Thompson, a 2011 BHS graduate and current UW team captain, and Sarah Redmond, a 2010 BHS graduate, have both been important assets for the team.

The qualification for nationals topped off a very successful year for the team.

During the spring season, participants from the 16-member team sailed in a total of eight regattas. Some notable finishes included a second place finish at the most prominent West-coast team race: McIntyre, at Stanford University.

In fleet racing, the team finished fourth at the St. Francis Inter-conference Regatta, just off the Golden Gate Bridge. Dominating both Northwest Team Race and Coed districts were notable in-conference finishes, which qualified the team for the National event.
