Thirty-two high school sailors from six visiting teams joined 23 sailors from the Rockland Community Sailing squad team for the junior varsity-level third annual Breakwater Blast High School Sailing Regatta May 13 in the north end of Rockland Harbor.

An additional 50-plus coaches, parents and volunteer support staff converged on The Apprenticeshop waterfront to enjoy a solid day of racing. Twelve races were completed from 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. in an A and B rotation.

Fifty-five sailors competed on 11 RCS 420 sailboats by taking turns between the A and B divisions, while experiencing steady 3-9 knot south easterly winds with occasional gusts to 12 knots. The skies were overcast and the temperature was 50 degrees. Similar to last year the sun came out for a short while.
