Anacortes has gotten off to a strong start in Northwest Conference play.
Anacortes split its non-conference games Saturday against Lynden and Sequim, losing to Lynden 6-2 then beating Sequim 8-7.
Anacortes finished last in a six-team field March 19 in a Northwest Conference tournament at Sudden Valley Golf & Country Club.
Anacortes finished third March 19 in a Northwest Conference match at Lake Padden Golf Course.
Anacortes is showing a real knack for winning close games. The Seahawks posted four wins last week by a combined seven runs to improve to 6-0.
About 80 student sailors from a dozen high schools will converge on Seafarers’ Memorial Park Saturday for the Anacortes 2v2 Regional Regatta.
The event is hosted by the Anacortes Sailing Team, which will have 17 sailors racing.
“I am excited about bringing this regatta to Anacortes,” coach Erik Mann said in an e-mail. “It is the first high school regatta Anacortes has hosted in over 12 years.”
The first race is scheduled to start at 10:45 a.m., weather permitting, Mann said.
