Young sailors from the greater New England area converged on Northeast Harbor in mid-July to compete in the regional USA Junior Olympic Sailing Festival. The MDI Community Sailing Center in collaboration with the Northeast Harbor Fleet hosted the event with help from other local yacht clubs as part of the Great Harbor Dream. Races included six classes of boat: Laser radial, Club 420 with and wthout spin, Turbo 420, Optimist and Cape Cod Mercury. Congratulations go out to Connor Ratcliff (MDICSC) and Skye Ehrhart (NEHF) who came in second overall after five bullets and one second place finish out of 11 races in the C420 with spin and trapeze category. Congratulations also to Terra Ehrhart (MDICSC) who placed 1st overall out of 28 boats in the Optimist category. Details of the regatta can be found in the link below. Mount Desert Islander.
