Port Angeles sailing team ends season with strong finish

KINGSTON — This weekend, sailing teams from Port Townsend, Central Kitsap, Kingston and Port Angeles came together for a regional scrimmage in Apple Tree Cove in Kingston. This was the final event for the Port Angeles team before taking a break for the winter, the local sailors finished strong.

Junior Ozzy Minard and senior Ella Schulz finished third overall. Senior Elliot Dahlin and junior Fern Knobel finished fourth.

Senior Luna Hutchins who sailed with Charlie Kasten, an eighth-grader from Stevens Middle School, finished a personal-best eighth. Fern “This last regatta was my favorite, we had a good bit of wind, a little rain and a rainbow.”

“It was a great season. Our team is growing and Port Angeles is becoming a team to be reckoned with,” Hutchin said. “I can’t wait to start again in the Spring.”

The spring sailing season begins at the end of February. The high school sailing program is open to all high school sailors within Clallam County and is sponsored by the Port Angeles Yacht Club and the Port of Port Angeles.

Founded in 2019, the Community Boating Program is a nonprofit group whose mission is to provide access to boating opportunities to youth and adults on the Olympic Peninsula. The organization offers a wide range of services.
