Martha’s Vineyard High School Gets New 420 Fleet
March 13, 2012
MVTimes.com: Sixteen members of the Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School (MVRHS) sailing team, all wearing their new charcoal-grey team windbreakers, and several members of the Sail Martha’s Vineyard (Sail MV) board of directors lined up Monday (March 5) at the edge of the Steamship dock in Vineyard Haven. It was breezy and cool. They were eager to meet the 4:30 p.m. ferry. They wanted to see their new racing boats.
Soon after the ferry docked, Brock Callen, president of Sail MV, the Island nonprofit devoted to promoting sailing to young Vineyarders, drove a pickup truck off the ferry. Behind it was a large trailer carrying 6 brand-new sailboats, Collegiate 420 racing dinghies. Mr. Callen pulled the truck to the side and hopped out, all smiles. The student sailors, all smiles too, swarmed around the boats.
