The Oak Harbor High School Sailing team finished their season this month at the 2021 NWISA Fall Championships in Portland. The Wildcats gold fleet boat finished seventh overall, a program-best finish at a fall championships.

Seniors Thomas Buys and EJ Boilek led the way in A division, collecting three top five finishes in ten races. The pair finished race eleven in second place, but the race was thrown out as B division did not start their required race before the time limit.

Senior Ryan Metz and Junior Shelby Lang collected a top five in a solid showing in B division, keeping the Wildcats within striking position in a very competitive fleet.

Gold fleet was contested in C420s, a boat Oak Harbor does not practice in. The team gained confidence in a strong finish in unfamiliar boats, knowing the remainder of official regattas will take place in boats the team sails in every day at practice.

Oak Harbor’s silver fleet also had a strong weekend, finishing fifth of 20 boats. Sophomore Anna Servatius and Junior Allison Bailey kept the team close in A fleet, and Senior Ben Servatius and SWHS Sophomore Colin Byler delivered the knockout blow in B division. The pair split races on the helm, collecting four wins, two seconds, and nine top fives in ten races.
