Bermudian freshman Mackenzie Cooper assisted the Tabor Academy Seawolves in winning the Mark Trophy yesterday in Cambridge Massachusetts. The Mark Trophy is awarded to the winners of the New England Secondary School Sailing Association (NESSA) Team Racing Championships. The Tabor team helmed by Cooper, Alex Jacob and Nick Johnstone took no prisoners in the 13 race event with an impressive 12 wins and only 1 loss. Second place St. George’s School were 9-4 while third placed team Hotchkiss School were 6-7 for the day. Tabor entered the regatta as underdogs having lost in regular season to both St. George’s and Portsmouth Abbey. Coach Rob Hurd was particularly proud of his team’s performance, recognizing the team for their continued improvement throughout the season.

The top 8 high school teams in New England were invited to participate based on their 2010 season performances. Hosted by MIT at their Charles River sailing pavillion, the event were sailed in color coded FJ dinghies provided by the hosts. The picture perfect day saw breeze between 7 – 15 knots with the backdrop of Boston’s Prudential Center and neighboring skyline. Entering the qualifying round robin on Saturday morning were teams from Tabor Academy, St. George’s School, the Hotchkiss School, Darien High School, North Kingstown High School, Porstmouth Abbey, Duxbury High School and St. John’s Prep. The top 4 teams from the qualifying round went forward to the 6 race Championship Round where Tabor went undefeated. As winners of Mark Trophy, Tabor earns a berth to the High School Sailing National Team Racing Championships for the Baker Trophy in Seattle next weekend.

Quantum Leap

Jeanneau Sun Fast 37

Our skippered yacht charter packages are a great way for a family or group of friends/colleagues to get out for a sailing adventure, with the confidence and security of having a professional skipper on hand to ensure everyone has a safe and enjoyable time. These trips are suitable for everyone. They are equally good for novices looking to try sailing for the first time through to experienced sailors wanting to go further afield or to practice and develop their sailing skills. With a dedicated RYA qualified instructor on hand, every trip is tailored to your requirements, so everyone can experience an appropriate level of involvement and challenge. On our skippered yacht charter you have exclusive use of our yacht, Quantum Leap, a beautifully maintained and superbly equipped Jeanneau Sunfast 37 luxury sailing vessel. Accommodating up to 8 people (including the skipper), she is comfortable, spacious, and equally at home with offshore passage making or cruising in the Solent. From our base in Haslar marina, Gosport, you could spend your time exploring the Solent or some of the many destinations along the south coast of England. If you want to go further afield, France and the Channel Islands can be reached on a long weekend charter, as can the superb cruising grounds of the West Country. You choose what you would like to do and where you would like to go. Your skipper is there to help and guide and, most importantly, to ensure that you get the most out of your time onboard. Quantum Sailing's skippered yacht charters makes a great family holiday or memorable experience for a group of friends and with costs from less than £35 per person per day (based on 6 crew), this can be the most cost effective way to get sailing.
