    Hollywood,FL- September 28th, Our Good Hope Country Day School HS sailing team competed in SAISA first South Points Regatta of the 2019/2020 Season.  GHCDS had teams competing in both Varsity and Junior Varsity divisions. The venue was challenging with light and shifty winds, changing currents and moored boats obstructing the race course, in true Panther spirit our team rose to the occasion. This was the first HS sailing regatta most of our very young team has ever competed in, our team comprised of mostly freshman and sophomores held their own in both Varsity and JV divisions.  Our Varsity A team (skipper Milo Miller/ crew Lucy Klempen) having the only freshman skipper and our Varsity B team(skipper JJ Klempen/crew Carson Oakley) having the top finishing freshman skipper, and a bullet in the second race.
