With winds over Mission Bay light to start, they picked up enough to get the racing off and running around noon.
The Mission Bay team, led by sophomore Adelaide Cunningham and freshman Marleigh Henehan, had four boats in the silver fleet.
In addition to the team captains, McKenzie Neuman (’21), Brian Fitzsimmons (’20), Christopher Zamorripa (’21), Noah Kapchinske (’21), Owen Getz (’21), and Jacob Adler (’22) sailed six races. The top two MBHS boats scored second and sixth overall, out of 37 boats (Huntington Beach High School finished first).
Coaches Aine McLean and Chris Wright were thrilled to see the progress this newly-formed team is making. As it turns out, several of the competitors had never even been in a boat prior to October.
With their performances this past weekend, their coaches and parents are all extremely proud of the sailors’ progress and are looking forward to many great years of high school sailing.
