Five members of the Friday Harbor High School Sailing Team spent last weekend (April 28-29) waiting for wind at Seattle’s Sail Sand Point facility at the District Championships. Huddled beneath a team tent, with school books opened, the rain drummed yet the wind refused to fill-in until late Saturday afternoon. When racing actually happened, Friday Harbor’s skipper Per Black, and Zoe Calverley, Emmett Carrier and Leah Black (who all took turns crewing in Per’s boat) were the winning boat in “A” Division, recording 1st, 2nd, 7th, and 1st place finishes for a total of 11 points.

Ten golf medals were awarded in the Men’s division and Mount Vernon took home nine. They definitely are the team favorite at the upcoming District Tournament.
