Navy Fall Intersectional @ US Naval Academy
Team: 5th of 18 w/528 points
C Div.: 4th w/130 points - Chris Barnard
D Div.: 5th w/97 points - Alex Post
One of the largest regattas in college sailing was met with blustery winds on Saturday ranging from 18-25 knots. The Hoyas were challenged physically and mentally by the difficult conditions, but were able to maintain their composure into Sunday’s more moderate breezes. Trouble on the starting line led to several double digit finishes in all four divisions, but intelligent recoveries allowed the team to scrap back into the top 5 by the end of racing. Sydney Bolger and her cadre of crews sailed well in the extremely competitive A Division, while freshman Alex Post kept the team’s overall score down with his consistent top-third finishes. Many of the best teams in the country were present and the team performed above its recent #6 National Ranking.
Captain Hurst Bowl @ Dartmouth
Team: 14th of 22 w/348 points
B Div.: 17th w/184 points - Dan Eichler / Annalee Leggett
The Hoyas struggled mightily at the Captain Hurst Bowl and were never able to crack the top ten. Mascoma Lake outside Hanover, NH is generally a light air venue but last weekend it was anything but. With winds gusting close to 30MPH and shifting 45 degrees the conditions were challenging. The Hoyas were never really able to put together a solid run of top 10 finishes on Saturday. Sunday the Hoyas were better prepared and were leading in a number of races and finished in the top 10 more often than not. While boatspeed and boathandling were good the Hoyas had trouble connecting shifts and staying in phase on the beats. The strong and shifty winds made it hard for the Hoyas to catch up when they got behind in a race.
The Hoyas will be back in competition on the weekend of October 29-30 at the War Memorial (MAISA’s Coed Fall Championship) held at Navy, the Harvard Women’s Intersectional on the Charles River in Boston, and the Top 9 Regatta at Old Dominion.
