Our Wynberg Sailors did their School proud at the SailPro Team Racing Inter-schools on Sunday 21 June 2015: the event was held at Imperial Yacht Club as a ‘pilot’ combination for a start of a school team sailing league (SailPro Team League) and the SailPro inter-schools. The team league was a combination of tertiary institutions and schools.
The SailPro Inter-schools was a contest between Bishops, SACS and Wynberg Boys’ High. In addition, UCT, Stellenbosch University, CPUT and Barbarians team also sailed with all teams also fighting for the SailPro Team League title.
WBHS sailed extremely well and won every single race all the way to the final where they were up against CPUT. The final was very tightly contested with the lead changing constantly throughout each race. It was never a clear win and both races went down to the wire. CPUT just sneaked in on the first two races and WBHS narrowly missed out on the daysâ€™ SailPro Team League champion title.
This is the second year on the trot WBHS have won the SailPro Inter-schools trophy, as well as the Southern Charter SAS WC Inter-schools which they have also taken two years in a row.
