2018 Coed All NEISA Team


#7 Hobart and William Smith College won the MAISA Women's Championship narrowly over #9 Georgetown University, 88 to 89 points, after 11 races in each division. The Herons of HWS sailed the 22 total race regatta well, collectively, winning B-DIvision with 47 points and finishing second in A-Division with 41 points, a combination typically good enough to win any regatta, let alone a conference championship.

Despite a strong start to the regatta, the Herons fell behind Georgetown in the middle of the event. Both HWS divisions were extremely strong, however, five of the six races scored outside the top-5 for the team, occured between race 3A and race 6B. During this stretch, Georgetown pulled ahead. HWS rebounded and notched 7 races inside the top-4 over the final 8 races of the event to win.

College sailing lost a legend last week. Harold (Hatch) Brown passed away last Wednesday and our sailing community is a little less whole. Brown was the Sailing Master and Head Coach at MIT for almost three decades. His contributions to our game live on and his impact can be felt through the spirit of College Sailing today. Brown was 86.

#8 Harvard University won the Thompson Trophy hosted by Connecticut College. The three division, 36 race event was one of two premier coed fleet race regattas last weekend as the ICSA largely switches gears for an abbreviated fleet race focused season. Harvard stepped up and won decisively amid trying conditions. Their 69 point margin of victory was a team effort, but the Crimson’s C-Division boat, Eli Burns ‘21 and Kevin Coakley ‘18 managed, still, to stand out. The tandem put together a scoreline with 11 of 12 races in the top-3, totalling 32 points, 40 points ahead of second place.
