The Newport Harbor High sailing team earned third place in the Interscholastic Sailing Assn. High School National Fleet Racing Championships last week.
Cathedral Catholic won, while Point Loma finished second at the Indian Harbor Yacht Club in Greenwich, Conn.
Twenty teams and 180 sailors representing seven districts throughout the nation qualified for the two-day event.
Twenty races were completed and on the final day of sailing, winds ranged from 15 to 30 miles per hours with gusts to 35 and a wind chill factor in the 40s.
Senior skippers Chris Segerblom and Randall Hause competed at the helm in every race and were fortunate to have experienced crew members Conner Bathen, Cooper Scott, Ryan Davidson and Daniel Segerblom.
