All competitors headed out on the water early for a fresh 8-14 knot WNW breeze. Sailing was very tight with all 3 divisions sailing in both FJs and tech dinghies. A Harry Anderson course with leeward gate was employed for FJs and a WLW course was used for the tech dinghies.
The 132nd Oberg Trophy was a 3 division regatta with all divisions sailing 12 races for 36 total races today. The trophy honors the Northeastern Sailing Team advisor Rudolph Oberg and this was the 132nd competition since the Sping of 1941. Dartmouth "Big Green' won the regatta convincingly and Tufts University is the top team from Greater Boston as this event is the Greater Boston Seasonal Championship.
Northeastern's Sailing Coach, Rob Breslin, was on RC assisted by Brian Coey and MIT's Fran Charles. Jeff Dusek helped out with moving marks and hearing protests. Husky sailors Marshall, Sydney, Caleb, Vanessa, Kevin, Becker, Dave, Brendan and Dank helped out tremendously with organization, finishing and scoring.
