The Sharon Sailor Handbook

There is a lot of useful educational material on this website including information on rigging, rules, racing techniques, boat handling, and the finer points of team racing. Once you get the password from a coach or team member, view this material that was painstakingly prepared for all SHS sailors by clicking the Handbook tab above or here.

Announcements, ETC.

2017 Spring Season Highlights

2017 was another record breaking year! Early in the season, we placed 2nd in the Courageous Kickoff Regatta and 1st in the Sharon Invitational. We then went 18 and 3 in our team race meets, 9 and 0 within the A Division of our league. In the NESSA Terk Team Race Championship in Portland, ME, we took 2nd place, our highest finish ever.

In fleet racing, we placed 2nd in our O'Day Qualifier and 7th out of 48 schools at the finals. On the merits of our O'Day finish, we were invited to a national regatta in Annapolis, MD.

For the second year in a row, we won the overall trophy at the Massachusetts Bay League's fleet race championship, a huge two day, four fleet regatta, against 26 other schools. Finally, in our best finish ever, we took 2nd place (only losing to Milton Academy) in the "States" Championship at MIT.

In 2017, Sharon was the best public school sailiing team in Massachusetts!

Words Of Wisdom
