Ransom Everglades won its second South Atlantic Interscholastic Sailing Association (SAISA) major sailing regatta of the 2022-23 season in Tampa on March 4 to cement first place in the SAISA south rankings going into the season's final event. Under the direction of Captain Joe Logan, the Raiders dominated in the varsity and junior varsity divisions of the event, known as the South Points No. 6.
RE varsity sailors also won the SAISA South Points No. 2 regatta on Nov. 5 in Sarasota. They finished second at events in Jensen Beach, Fla., and St. Petersburg, and posted just one third-place finish at the South Points No. 5 event held at Ransom Everglades because of an error at the start.
