Great Lakes High School Championships - Hosted by Chicago Yacht Club


New Trier sailed to an 18 point victory over Gross Ile of Michigan and 26 points over third place Loyola during this past weekend’s Great Lakes Championships. Hosted by Chicago Yacht Club, seventeen teams representing the top high school teams from Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, and Minnesota, competed in the two day event on the waters of Monroe Harbor. The regatta, which represents the Fall Midwest high school championship, was competed in a three fleet format, with A and B divisions sailed in 420s and one C division sailed in Lasers.

In A Division, Erik Bowers and crew Sydney Borical of International School of Minnesota got off to a fast start with a first and a second. New Trier’s team of Ned Turney and crew Nick Connelly were close behind with a third and a first in their first rotation. The Bowers team was unable to maintain their initial pace, however, and were caught by Turney who won the division by eight points. The St Ignatius team of Sandy Williams and Emman Hermanek was third.

Just a couple of clarifications - It is Grosse Ile, not Gross Ile, and the winners of Division B have names just like the rest of the top boats - they are skipper Jon Duffett, and crew Kelsey Dubois, both juniors at Grosse Ile High School. Otherwise, nice article -god to see the kids get some press! Thanks!11/27/2005 6:03:40 PM
Thanks for the clarifications - It important for everyone to get the praise they deserve. And by the way, it "good" for the kids to get some press, not "god". :)11/27/2005 8:14:21 PM
