In the high school fleet, consistently up front were the Laser Radials sailed by Sonja Stock of Cape Town representing Wynberg Girls’ High and York High’s James Hellstrom. These two shared the race wins to end up tied on points for first place. It was up to sailing’s tie-break system to give the overall win to Hellstrom on the basis of winner of last race. Third place went to the Dabchick, sailed by Kirstie Gehrung, representing Glenwood House College. Just off the podium in fourth place was the Gypsy sailed by Devon Dennis and Charl Geland for Pacaltsdorp High.
