It was an awesome day of racing on day one of the Sherman Hoyt Trophy at the Ted Turner '60 Sailing Pavilion at the Edgewood Yacht Club! Lots of sun and temps got up to around 70 degrees. 8 races in each division were sailed in a mainly Northwesterly direction with huge shifts and puffs from the West and North. Velocity ranged from 8-16 knots and all courses were 15-17 minute W4's and 20-22 minute W5's. A-division sailed FJs and B-division sailed Z420s. Two protests were filed and one request for redress, with one DSQ given to Boston College in race 8A. Thanks to the coaches, led by NEISA Rep Mike O"Connor, for hearing protests and our on-the-water judges James Barry (Brown '16) and Megan Grapengeter-Rudnick (Brown '17). Thanks as well to Brown sailors Connor Macken '24, Mason Stang '25, and Brianna Ross '26 for helping out on the water and to URI and the Edgewood Sailing School for providing powerboats for coaches.
Yale has the lead with Harvard and Brown not too far behind in second and third with six more races per division scheduled for Sunday. Racing was super tight today and everyone was vulnerable given the shifty and up and down conditions.
Divisions will switch fleets on Sunday and the Report Time has been changed to 10:00am with a building Southerly forcasted throughout the day.
Great racing on day two of the Sherman Hoyt Trophy with six more races in each division. Report time was pushed back to 10am after a long day on Saturday and the forecast for a building southerly breeze throughout the afternoon. Boats left the dock at 11am and sailed in a West/Southwest breeze that went more South as the day went on. Velocity ranged from 6-14 knots and all courses were 15-17 minute W4's and 20-22 minute W5's. A-division sailed Z420s and B-division sailed FJs. Four more protests were filed with one DSQ given to URI in race 10A. A huge thanks to Michael Zonnenberg for judging on Sunday and to the coaches, led by NEISA Rep Mike O"Connor, for hearing protests. Thanks as well to Brown sailors Emi Ruth '23, Sierra Bornheim '24, and Janelle Li '25 for helping out on the water on Sunday and to URI and the Edgewood Sailing School for providing powerboats for coaches.
Congratulations to Yale on winning the 2022 Sherman Hoyt Trophy with Brown getting close and finishing in second and Harvard in third overall.
