NWISA Regionals March 5th

The Northwest Interscholastic Sailing Association (NWISA) kicked off the 2016 High School spring sailing season with two regional regattas on March 5th. The South Regional, hosted by Central Kitsap High School sailing team saw 22 teams compete on Dye’s Inlet, while the North Regional was hosted by the Oak Harbor High School sailing team, and had eighteen teams sailing off the city front at Oak Harbor.  Over 180 high school sailors participated in both day long regional regattas. High School sailing is growing in the PNW, 39 schools are currently registered with NWISA for 2016. Those teams are introducing the sport of sailing to many new families, which will help bring new life and energy into our community sailing clubs and yacht clubs. The two NWISA regions will converge at Sail Sandpoint in Seattle on March 12&13 where  over 40 boats will be on the start line for the two day NWISA Combined Division Regatta. The spring season continues with regattas and head to head matches every weekend through May.
