80th Boston Dinghy Cup


Saturday, April 25:

The oldest trophy in college sailing was sailed under a spotty breeze from the WNW which got more unstable as the day went on and the breeze went more into the north. With three divisions racing, each division sailed in both Fireflies and the new turbo FJs. One protest was heard and racing will resume tomorrow on the Charles River.

Coach Mike Kalin tweaked the buoys while Harvard Sailing Team members Ben Zheng, Olivia Kjorlien, Ian Batts, and Daniel Leichus took finishes and updated tech score.

Sunday, April 26:

A feeble seabreeze finally pulsed into the Charles River by noon. Racing commenced immediately but then the breeze began to recede as the cloud cover dashed all hope for the heat pump to engage. The last C Division race was discarded as there was not enough breeze to get matching B and A Division races completed.

Congrats to the Stanford Cardinals who battled back to retake the lead today and defend their victory last year for the Boston Dinghy Club Challenge Cup.

A huge thanks to Mike Kalin who tweaked the race course constantly. Ben Zheng, Olivia Kjorlien, Ian Batts, and Daniel Leichus from the Harvard Crimson sailing team managed finishing duty and scoring.
