The 2023 Sherman Hoyt Trophy saw fall like temps and a cold and not so dry rain for the first day of racing. Winds were from the East/Northeast mainly in the 6-15 knot range and shifty. Current also was a major factor at times. 8 races were sailed in each division (A-div in FJs and B-div in 420s) on Saturday with a 1pm first race and concluding the day by 5:30pm. One protest was heard resulting in a DSQ. Thanks to Brown Assistant Coach Spencer Cartwright and URI Coach Joakim Karlsen for hearing the protest.
Both days of the Sherman Hoyt Trophy were very similar with fall like temps and a cold and not so dry rain. Winds were from the East/Northeast for both days mainly in the 6-15 knot range and shifty. Current also was a major factor at times. The divisions switched boats for Sunday with 6 more races and 14 races total in each division for the weekend. All courses were W4's throughout the weekend. The racing was great despite the weather. A huge thanks to Blake Behrens (Brown '27) for braving the elements and scoring and helping through the weekend. Thanks to Yale Coach Zack Leonard for being the NEISA Representative.
Congratulations to the Brown Bears on winning both divisions and the 2023 Sherman Hoyt Trophy.

The following chart shows the relative rank of the teams as of the race indicated. Note that the races are ordered by number, then division, which may not represent the order in which the races were actually sailed.
The first place team as of a given race will always be at the top of the chart. The spacing from one team to the next shows relative gains/losses made from one race to the next. You may hover over the data points to display the total score as of that race.
