Scotch College Regains State Sailing Title

During the first week of the holidays, three Scotch teams took part in the State Schools Teams Racing Competition at Nedlands Yacht Club. Our Firsts Team took the title after winning every race in the two day qualifying series and the final series. Christ Church Grammar School were placed second, with our seconds gaining fourth, and our thirds a very commendable overall fifth place. A full report will be in the coming Clan.
