Founders Trophy

ISSA National Invitational Tournament
May 26-28, 2017
Regatta Page

The National Invitational Tournament Regatta started in 2009 as a way to promote team racing among school teams. Since NESSA had a strong background in team racing, they combined with the two districts on their borders to create an event for those teams that just missed out on the Baker. The first NIT was in Rochester, NY. The winner of the NITs receives the Founders Trophy, a permanent trophy donated by the coaches from the three remaining founding schools of high school sailing - Tabor Academy, St. George's School, & The Hotchkiss School - to further the interest in intersectional team racing.

It was an epic weekend of big air fall sailing on Long Island Sound as 31 I420s battled the conditions and each other for the Atlantic Coast Championship title.

Congratulations to Wiley Rogers & Jack Parkin who dominated the fleet, winning 4 of the 5 races. TJ Danilek & Pierce Ornstein were second, and won the only race Wiley/jack did not. And Canadians Patrick Wilson & Arie Moffat took the bronze. Maddie Rice & Ella Barry were to top girls team, in 6th, and AnaClare Sole & Grace Austin the 2nd girls team in 7th. The heavy air didn't hinder the lighter girl teams who were not overpowered in these conditions - a big benefit of the highly adjustable rig and sail controls of the I420. It was very windy both days - steady 18-20, with gusts 25-30. A few massive gusts hit the fleet as they were sailing in on Sunday, causing some capsizes in the mud (TJ/Pierce bent their mast and broke their centerboard in half on the way in from the last race). And in shades of the 2010 Worlds in Buenos Aires, much of the fleet did not set chutes on Sunday, and those that did only set on a couple legs, usually taking the kite down before jibing. And even the best of 'em went for a swim. Thanks to Indian Harbor YC who did an outstanding job in very challenging conditions.
