The North Kingstown High School sailing team won the Boston Gleekman Champion Regatta this past Sunday, Oct. 9.
The weather was cool and damp with a brisk northeast wind of 8 to 12 knots. Skipper Gary Largess, class of 2007, and crew Anna Miniutti, class of 2006, finished second in A division, while Pete Largess, class of 2007, and Marisa Nixon, class of 2006, finished second in B division.
This combination of sailors won the regatta against 19 teams by one point after 16 races sailed. The victory qualified NK for a berth in the prestigious Great Oaks Regatta, which will be held in Austin, Texas, on Lake Travis this Nov. 12 and 13 in FJs.
