Junior Lipton Challenge wraps up

PASS CHRISTIAN, MS (WLOX) - It's been a wonderful weekend on the water with the Junior Lipton Challenge wrapping up at the Pass Christian Yacht Club.

Junior Saliers ranging from ages 12 through high school are visiting the Coast from as far as Texas and Florida for two days of racing. Pass Christian earned the honor of hosting after winning the 2016 championship.

According to unofficial results so far, the they will once again take the title of Junior Lipton Challenge champions.

"It's a great sense of pride for our team and our kids, it's really about the kids this weekend. They've worked so hard week after week after week preparing for this event, and it really all kind of came to fruition for them. So they take an ultimate sense of pride in being able not only to win last year, but as some of those kids came back with a little bit more seniority and some newer kids came on the team," said Huston Lambert.
