ISSA News


Welcome to the 2014 - 2015 ISSA year! Most of us have had a summer break from High School Sailing, but through the efforts of One Design Management, we have accomplished a number of administrative items over the summer.


The Charles River served up two days of light to moderate easterly winds for the 6th annual National Invitational Tournament for the Founders Trophy. 81 races were completed among 10 teams representing 4 ISSA districts. Congratulations to our winners from Lake Forest High School.


Congratulations to Point Loma High School for winning the 2014 Baker Team Race Championship in a closely fought battle with Annapolis High School. Congratulations to all 18 schools for a great event and especially to SEISA and Joanne Willits and her crew for organizing a special event.


High School Sailing (Interscholastic Sailing Association – ISSA) holds the final Championship of the sailing season with the Baker Team Race Championship, in Seabrook, TX sailed out of Lakewood Yacht Club this coming weekend, May 24-25. If the Mallory Championship was any indicator, the Baker will be equally as exciting.


The High School Doublehanded Championship brought together 20 schools from across the USA to compete in San Diego Bay on May 10-11. With the venue just off the B Street Pier, and team compounds perched on the edge over the course, it proved to be an epic venue for both sailors and spectators. The 11-race regatta, sailed in Club Flying Juniors, ended in dramatic fashion. It could not have been any closer. Sharing the details and emotions of the moment is Steve Hunt, coach of the winning Point Loma High School team…


Besides honoring the most important women in the world, SDYC observed another Mother’s Day tradition in May by hosting the High School Doublehanded National Championship. The top twenty teams from around the country assembled to vie for ISSA’s coveted Mallory Trophy, setting the stage for a dramatic weekend. Utilizing SDYC’s regionally unrivaled fleet of 24 CFJ dinghies and the ultra-spectator-friendly Cityfront venue; sailors, coaches, and fans were treated to breezy conditions and a nail-biter finish! Congratulation to the Point Loma High School Pointers, who rallied on Sunday to win by one point, capturing their sixth National title!
