Stu­dents sail the high seas

Whitsunday Times - - ON THE WATER -

STU­DENTS from Proser­pine State High School trav­elled to Townsville on Sun­day to com­pete in the North Queens­land Schools Sail­ing Teams rac­ing re­gatta hosted by the Townsville Sail­ing Club. The stu­dents com­peted against other teams from Townsville.

Con­di­tions were good with a steady north-east wind blow­ing for most of the day.

It was a round robin event and the Proser­pine team won five of their eight races, which gave them a se­cond place ov- er­all for the day.

The win­ner goes on to com­pete against teams from fur­ther north, with the ul­ti­mate win­ner to rep­re­sent the re­gion in the na­tional com­pe­ti­tion in Bris­bane later this year.
