(April 4, 2013) The Nantucket High School sailing team got back on the water this week and is gearing up for the 2013 season with its largest roster to date and a new coach.

This year 37 students signed up for the team, including one senior and 20 freshmen. With such a large roster, new head coach Kim Calnan decided to try something different and split the team into a varsity and JV so everyone could get more time on the water. The varsity will practice on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, and the JV will meet Tuesday and Thursday, she said.
