National Sailing Centre, Friday, April 10, 2015 — On the fourth and final day of racing, Raffles Institution (RI) clinched the B Division boys’ title at the National Inter-School Sailing Championships. This completed their grand slam after bagging the A and C Division titles on Wednesday. RI performed well and managed to outclass their opponents, Anglo-Chinese School (Independent) and Victoria School.

Raffles Girls’ School (RGS) also finished first in the B Division girls’ category to complement their C Division title.

The B Division boys and girls, Junior Division (Primary) boys and girls, and the A Division girls battled their hearts out in their last race today. They were dealt with weather conditions which were similar to the past few days, which allowed sailors to easily predict and manipulate the wind and water.

One of the most notable events was the protest involving Natalia Ngoc of RGS and Chin Jia Xuan of Nanyang Girls’ High, which turned the tables from yesterday’s protest after the fourth race. Yesterday, after the protest, Natalia was disqualified from the fourth race. However, her position in the fourth race was re-instated after she protested against Jia Xuan in return.
