Newport Harbor High School Crowned Victors at Battle on the Bay 2011

Newport Harbor High School nearly sweeps the CdM Sea Kings in a 3-1 victory.  The pieces were 90 seconds long and brought some tight racing to the waters in Newport Beach Harbor today.  The first race of the day started out with CdM taking a quick jump off of the line and about 45 seconds into the piece they took a buoy under their port side riggers and lost their lead.  NHHS took advantage of this and scooped up the first win of the afternoon.  The next piece was very close off of the start with NHHS taking a slight victory in the closing seconds.  In a last ditched effort to turn the tides CdM threw everything they had into the next piece and narrowly edged out NHHS by about 2 feet.  The final race of the day NHHS athletes had a great piece and after about 50 seconds of close racing made a huge move to close out the day with a 3-1 victory over CdM.

The spectators from the OCC Boathouse were great and we are looking forward to a more much larger event next year!  Here are some pictures from Blair Box:
