It was an exciting weekend for the commemorative launch of Christchurch School’s Jack Dozier ’65 Fleet.
Sailors from as far away as Chicago descended on the Christchurch waterfront to sail the fleet of ZIM FJ sailboats in the Christchurch Fall Invitational, with nine teams launching from the Clyde V. Kelly IV Sailing Pavilion, reported Jennifer Homer. The rotation of 14 races wrapped up at noon on Sunday with 8-10 mph winds.
The Christchurch sailors won the event. Placing second, was Duxbury High School of Duxbury, Mass.; third, Evanston Township High School of Chicago.
