Come sail away



Cape Elizabeth High School sailors Tucker Wanzer (crew, in front) and Greg Corsello (skipper, in back) dominated the day, winning six of eight races at the Chip Off the Ice Regatta to kick off SailMaine's spring high school regatta season, Saturday, March 28, in Casco Bay. Fourteen teams of sailors braved the waters on a day that was windy, cold and snowy, with a steady 15-knot northerly breeze that occasionally gusted into the 20s. Air and water temps in the 30s challenged racers to keep moving and stay warm. Portland High School and southern Maine high schools, which included students from Scarborough and Kennebunk, finished the day second and third, respectively, behind the Capers. Portland-based SailMaine is a non-profit community sailing center formed to provide affordable access to the water through sailing and educational programming. It aims to connect people of all ages and abilities to the coast of Maine through fun and affordable sailing education, recreation, and competition, stimulating individual growth and creating community. SailMaine’s high school racing series continues this weekend with the Cheverus Cup JV Team Race. FMI: www.sailmaine.org.
