Junior sailor wins national championship

Nick Kaschak-Pyle won his division in the national high school fleet racing championship regatta (Mallory Cup) at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Md. on May 11.

He is a member of the Point Loma (San Diego) High School Sailing Team. Regional championships around the country determined the top 20 schools to compete for the highly coveted Mallory Cup in the national championship regatta. Point Loma qualified for the nationals by winning the Pacific Coast Championship Regatta.

The only Rhode Island school to qualify was St. George's, which finished ninth.

Nick is the son of Shoreby Hill residents Chick and Alexis Pyle. He began his sailing career at the Conanicut Yacht Club.
