The sailing teams from Newport Harbor High School and Corona del Mar High School traveled to San Francisco to sail in the fourth Pacific Coast Interscholastic Sailing Assn. Regatta of the school year, called the Golden Bear Regatta, on Feb. 25 and 26. This year the regatta was hosted by the UC Berkeley sailing team, rather than Stanford University, and was held off of Treasure Island in the San Francisco Bay.
There were 29 teams in the Gold division and 30 teams in the Silver division. Most teams traveled from Southern California for the event, and both Newport Harbor and CdM were well-represented, with three teams each in the Gold Division.
Mater Dei High in Santa Ana and Sage Hill in Newport Coast also had teams competing in the event. The teams from the San Diego area dominated in the lighter-than-usual wind in the bay.
The varsity team from Newport Harbor — which consisted of Ryan Davidson, Greer Wattson, Chase Wells and Sally Fuller — placed sixth overall, and the CdM Varsity team — which consisted of Michael Madigan, Chloe Dapp, Connor Kelter, Christophe Killian, Brooke Donahue and Katie Donahue — placed seventh.
