Sherman Hoyt Trophy


Saturday, September 24:

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.
