Women's NE/Reed Trophy


Saturday, April 24:

Saturday: A gorgeous day on the Providence River with temps in the 60's and sunny skies. 2 races sailed in each division in a northerly that slowly died out by noon time. Winds ranged between 4 and 15 knots in the northerly. A long delay as we waited for the seabreeze to fill in. At 3:30pm it started to fill from the south and rapidly built to 15-18 knots with nice waves. 4 more races were sailed in each division in the S/SW breeze and we sailed the last B-set til 7:15pm. All courses were windward/leewards with an offset and gate. Two requests for redress were filed. Redress was given to UVM for a breakdown and one redress to be heard on Sunday from Dartmouth.

Sunday: A drizzly, damp and light start to the day with S/SE winds from 4-6 knots. Only two A races were sailed in the dying breeze. A long delay until around 1:30pm when a nice southerly filled in at 6-12 knots and little sunshine even broke through the clouds. Two B sets and one A set were completed for a total of 10 races in the new breeze. All windward/leeward courses were sailed and no protests were filed. The redress hearing was denied for Dartmouth from Saturday and was heard during the no wind delay. Racing came down to the wire for final qualifying berths for Nationals. An 11th A race was completed, but the 11th B race could not be started because of the 4:30 time limit.

Thanks to our judges Jeff Dusek, Leo Berendes, and George Crocker. Thanks as well to the Brown sailors that helped out: Colin Smith '13, Logan Shanney '13, Tommy Fink '13, Ashley Noble '13 and Evan Gill '12.

The Brown Bears win the Reed Trophy and Harvard finishes second. Both teams will move on to the ICSA Women's Nationals Finals to be sailed later in May at the University of Wisconsin. Congratulations as well to Boston College, Connecticut College, Tufts, Yale, and Dartmouth who finished third through seventh respectively and will compete at the Women's National Semi-finals at the University of Wisconsin.
