OLYMPIA — It was up with the sun and into the fog for the Bainbridge High sailing team at the recent Fall Ranking Championship Regatta in Olympia.

Bainbridge sailing team sailors rose early Saturday morning for a 6 a.m. departure to two-day fall season championship regatta, hosted by Olympia Yacht Club Oct. 28-29.

The regatta guarantees entry to the spring season championship regatta for the top five finishers in the Gold fleet. Each school is allowed to enter one team of sailors in the Gold fleet (consisting of division A and B), and several teams in the Silver fleet (also consisting of division A and B) for the rest of the sailors attending.

On both days Bainbridge sailors were welcomed by thick fog and chilly, still air. Boats were rigged and launched quickly, but students had to wait for a long time for races to start.

On the first day, the fog finally lifted and races started at 11 a.m. The two fleets were sailed on one course with the Gold fleet starting first, and Silver as the Gold fleet reached the weather mark.

BHS sailors in the Gold fleet traded off first place with Charles Wright School, ending the first day with their Gold team in third behind CWS and Sehome.

On the second day of the regatta, Bainbridge sailors put in another strong effort.

In the Gold A Division, Bainbridge placed fifth with Olivia Mitchell and Clayton Marsh. In the Gold B Division, Sophia Kasper and Hunter Johnson delivered a stellar performance with a first-place finish. This resulted in an overall third place in the gold fleet for Bainbridge High School.

In the Silver fleet, Bainbridge participated with two teams.

Team 1 placed first in the A Division and second in the B Division, which made for a solid and well-deserved first place overall for Team 1.

Team 2 placed ninth in the A Division and seventh in the B Division, finishing tied for seventh, broken into eighth.

The Silver fleet showed outstanding performances with Zach Cooper, Arianna Fiore, Peter Hall, Lindsay Campbell, Gus Beer, Camden Lee, Jack Sobeck, Parker Hutchinson and Jack Chapman.

Overall, the Gold fleet came home with a third place, and the Silver fleet finished with a first place and an eighth place.

With this excellent performance, the Bainbridge High sailing team qualified for the Island Cup and the NWISA Fleet Championship in the spring.
