Washington College Team Race


Saturday, March 21:

Sailors were greeted by a windless Chester River but by 1100 races had begun in a very light breeze out of the Southwest. By the end of the day, the wind had picked up to 10-12 kts and shifted to the Northwest. 30 races were completed and no protests were filed.

Sunday, March 22:

Conditions on Sunday morning were better than those on Saturday morning, allowing racing to begin by 9:45. Races were completed in a shifty Northwest breeze ranging from 5-12 kts. Fifteen more races were sailed allowing the completion of three round robins and an early finish for the competitors. One protest was heard, resulting in a DSQ. Congratulations to the George Washington University Colonials for winning the Washington College Team Race!

A big thank you to those on the WAC Sailing Team for hosting an almost entirely student-run regatta. Also, thank you to Boathouse director Ben Armiger for making the Washington College Boathouse and Pavilion available to racers and spectators alike.
