SpinSheet Racing Roundup April 29-30

Here's your SpinSheet Racing Roundup for the weekend of April 29-30.

The first thing we should mention is that last week when we posted the 10 Reasons To Race in Annapolis Tonight, we should have called it 10 Reasons You Should Have Raced in Baltimore Last Night.

As our favorite Baltimore racer-photographer, Mary Lees Gunther, reminded us, they got the racing thing done in Charm City on Tuesday before we got started---or as the case may be, petered out---in Annapolis on Wednesday. Our apologies to our BCYA friends for not mentioning their Tuesday night start earlier (they always get started a little before Annapolis and then on the other side, end the season later.) Sail on, Baltimore weeknight warriors! Send pics and stories anytime.

April 29: Annapolis Junior Keelboat Regatta

Archbishop Spalding High School Sailing Team took home the win in the third annual running of the Annapolis Junior Keelboat Regatta. Light shifting winds created challenges for the five teams and also provided close competition, requiring precise strategies to play the shifts.  

The regatta bought together five of the area's top regional high school sailing teams to race just off the docks of the Annapolis Spring Sailboat Show in Annapolis Harbor.

The event was created by the Annapolis Boat Shows, J World Annapolis, and area sailing coaches to offer a high profile competition between sailing teams from area schools and to provide them with the excitement of keelboat team racing on J/80s. 

The traveling trophy has gone to three different sailing teams in the past three years. South River and Broadneck high schools won previously.  

J World Annapolis continues to be the major sponsor and organizer of the regatta, and Helly Hansen presented each racer with a gift bag filled with swag and a hi-tech fabric shirt. The award ceremony took place at the boat show entertainment stage on Susan Campbell Park.
