68th Erwin Schell Trophy

Summary

Saturday, October 31:

Saturday: Big breeze on the Charles River with A Division starting in Techs through Race 10 and then, racing a set in FJs. B Division did the opposite. SSW breeze 20-30 resulted in swimming, a few breakdowns, and several protests. Courses were vanilla WLW, Harry Anderson, and Vanilla w/jimmies on top WLWLW.

Sunday awakened with a 5-8 knot northerly which was puffy, shifty and streaky. Courses were a banana split with gates top and bottom, two and a half laps as well as the diet version which was only one and a half laps. A plain vanilla and vanilla with jimmies were used on the last races.

Congrats to the Yale Elis for their dramatic come from behind win over the Roger Williams Hawks in the last set. This is their first Schell Trophy victory since the 1976 Bulldog team last dominated on the Charles River. Yale will be joined by Roger Williams, Boston College, Harvard, Vermont, Brown and Tufts representing NEISA at the Atlantic Coast Champs in two weeks.

Judges were John Pratt, Peter Johns, Leo Berendes. RC personnel were Jeff Dusek, Alvar Saenz-Otero, and Fran Charles.

NOTE: "BYE" scores are "REGRESS" scores granted as "average" of other scores. There were no "BYEs" in this regatta.
