Annapolis Junior Keelboat Regatta 2017
Published on April 29th, 2017
While the spring emphasis for high school teams is doublehanded fleet and team racing, five Maryland schools embraced variety by competing in the third annual Annapolis Junior Keelboat Regatta on April 29.
Held in J/80s just off the docks of the Annapolis Spring Sailboat Show in Annapolis Harbor, the regatta was created by the Annapolis Boat Shows, J World Annapolis, and area sailing coaches to expose area teams with the excitement of keelboat fleet racing.
Sailed in light shifting winds, Broadneck High School Sailing Team sought to defend their title, but they would be runner-up this year to Archbishop Spalding High School Sailing Team of Will Comerford, Jake Vickers, Jack Irvin, and Nataila Pereira. Completing the top five were St. Mary’s, Key, and Severna Park.
