SAISA Open, February 11, 2017
US Sailing Center, Martin County

Isa du Plessis (2020) & Kenna Reed (2020) – 3rd
Cameron Swain (2019) & Sam Juskiewicz (2020) – 4th

A steady SE breeze around 10kts produced 10 races for the 18 teams competing. Easterly shifts and ebb & flood currents throughout the day presented some challenge. The current velocity on the east portion of the course was much greater, being in the channel, however easterly shifts provided a strongly favored port tack during the day. Fortunately we were given a coach boat and coaches were allowed out on the water today, giving us the opportunity to tune and strategize after every race, making a great experience for the team. The JV team had a very impressive day of racing. The potential witnessed today makes me extremely proud to have the privileged to coach my alma mater.
The event was sponsored by the Crossroads Yacht Club. The commodore of the club presented trophies for the top 5 teams.
Thank you to Mr. Jonathan Swain for supplying the team with fuel for the day.

STA Sailing Team
The STA sailing team practices at the Lauderdale Yacht Club from September through May.  In addition to the competitive racing team, there is also an after school sailing club for those interested in learning to sail.  The established, well-known and successful LYC sailing program generously allows the competitive racing team and the sailing club the use of its fleet, its sailing facilities and coaching from its staff.  

May, 2016 – STA Sailing Team – Fifth in Nation
The 2016 ISSA Team Racing National Championships took place in Anacortes, Washington, on the last weekend in May, competing against teams from all corners of the country, including the US Virgin Islands.
Day 1: 48 degrees, windy and rainy conditions. We had some up and downs on Saturday but seemed to finish the day tied for fourth place.
Day 2: light and shifty breeze. Our momentum was gaining; then, the wind completely shut down! Racing was over. St. George’s School of Newport, Rhode Island, won the event with an undefeated score. Team Racing requires team work, trust, communication, awareness, and anticipation. Our sailors have excelled in this format for years, and have grown knowing each other through the sport with strong camaraderie that comes only with time. Congratulations to team member Mack Fox, Maxwell Gillette, Conner Correll, Clyde Wright, Alexandra Toppa, Dae Kelly, John Monahan, and Brian Buckley. Thanks to our coach, Arthur Blodgett, and all parents and families for a great year!

Last year (2014-2015) the STA Sailing Team placed second in the two national sailing championships, one for team racing and the other for fleet racing.  STA was second for the Mallory Trophy held at the US Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland, on May 9, 2015.  STA was very close to winning but placed second in the Baker Team Racing Trophy held on Lake Michigan and sponsored by the Chicago Yacht Club on May 23, 2015.  In November 2015, Sophia Reineke, ’17, placed third in the Cressy Trophy as the National High School Singlehanded Championship which was sailed in Lasers at the Old Dominion University Sailing Center in Norfolk, Virginia.  For complete results over the last two years, please select from the following:  STA Spring 2016STA Fall 2015,  STA Spring 2015STA Fall 2014
The Baker Trophy

In 1990, the Board of Directors established the Interscholastic Sailing Association (ISSA)’s National Team-Racing Championship for the Baker Trophy, named for Toby Baker, Tabor Academy’s (Marion, MA) then long time head sailing coach, in recognition of Toby’s commitment to high school sailing and to team racing in particular. Toby served as President and Treasurer of ISSA and as President of the New England School Sailing Association (NESSA). He coached high school sailing first at Taft, and then at Tabor. His influence helped interscholastic sailing evolve into a national organization. The championship venue now rotates among the ISSA districts.  This year the Baker National Championship is organized by the Northwest Interscholastic Sailing Association (NWISA) in Anacortes, Washington on May 27-29, 2016
