One-hundred twenty-three high school sailors from around the northwest converged on the Maritime Center for the Port Townsend high school sailing team’s home regatta. Port Townsend took second place behind North Kitsap. “Our sailors did a great job on the water with our varsity team proving we are a strong contender to go to nationals and the JV guaranteeing future possibilities.” said coach Sugar Flanagan.

Next weekend the team travels to Bellingham for Team Race Districts, then the following weekend is Doublehanded Districts in Seattle. Both are qualifiers for Nationals, which will be held this year in the pacific northwest on Lake Union.
