Sailors Compete in National Regatta

by Kavi Shah on Friday, June 9th, 2017

Milton Academy’s Varsity Sailing team has seen incredible success this year, and deserves high praise for its accomplishments. After getting 2nd place at states, Milton’s Varsity Sailing team traveled to Norfolk, Virginia to compete in the ISSA Baker Team Race Championship. The race was held on the weekend of May 27th. During the race, Milton battled against eleven other schools that had qualified in their respective regional championships. Earlier that month, Milton had placed second at the New England championship held at Bowdoin College.

The races at Bowdoin, held the week before Norfolk, consisted of eight teams from New England. The top two teams would be promised a trip to Norfolk with the opportunity to compete nationally. The skippers (captains of each ship) from Milton were Henry Burnes ‘17, Charles Hibben ‘18, Eli Burnes ‘17, Christina Sakellaris ’17, and Hunter Zonnenberg ‘19. The conditions at Bowdoin proved to be more advantageous for the sailors than those in Norfolk. Both Saturday and Sunday were comfortable with some sun and very little wind. Milton, scoring a sixteen over four, placed second in the race behind St. George’s, who scored an eighteen over two. Both teams represented New England.

In the national race, Milton placed third. Light winds and rain persisted early on, prompting for a thirty-minute delay. The winds aggressively blew the boats away from the finishing line, causing three teams to file for redress. The only two teams to place ahead of Milton were Point Loma High School in San Diego and Antilles High School in Puerto Rico. It was the first time since 2002 that Milton had qualified for the National Championships. The success for Milton throughout the season extended beyond team racing. Specifically, in fleet racing, Milton placed third in the National ISSA Mallory Doublehanded Championship held at MIT. The varsity sailing team lost only four individual races the entire season and managed to win every meet. After speaking to freshman Henry Taylor about what it means to place 3rd in the country, he mentioned that, “It was a nice experience going to Nationals as a freshman.” Henry also spoke on behalf of the leadership the team will be losing and said, “I’m excited to see what kind of team we’ll be next year without our seniors.”

Jack Sloane, a member of the Sailing team, described that he will definitely miss the seniors, saying “the seniors are a huge part of the team both off and on the water. We have some of the most talented sailors in the nation and the majority of them are seniors”. He adds that the “if you combine hard work, dedication, natural talent, greatness and a love for the sport, you come upon the 2017 sailing team. Our success comes from within, and each member of the team works hard, stays focused, and contributes.” Congratulations Milton sailors on your success this season!
