Coed Championships


This is the  the oldest of the five national championships.  By tradition and stature it is considered THE national championship.  The first ten competitions (1937-46) were held at the MIT Sailing Pavilion which served as the focus of college sailing in the early years.  From 1947 on, the sites of the ICSA championships have been rotated amongst the member conferences.  There are seven geographic conferences, and qualification for the nationals is earned first through the conference championships and then through the ICSA Dinghy Semifinals.  The number of berths to the semifinals is determined by the number of regular and provisional member schools in each conference.  The top nine teams from each of the two semifinals advanced to the nationals.

The dinghy nationals must be sailed in two person dinghies not less than 11 feet, nor more than 15 feet in length.  The regatta format consists of two-division fleet racing, the most commonly used format in the ICSA.  The school with the best combined scores for the two divisions wins the national championship.  High point scoring was used until 1968.  Low point scoring has been used since then.
