Franny Charles Women’s Team Race Regatta


Saturday, March 11:

Three round robins were held in a north, northeast breeze of 5-12 knots under threatening gray skies with snow and sleet occasionally icing things up a bit. Temps warmed up to a balmy 35 and it almost felt like Miami... Sailors were treated with 18 races total and coaches served as umpires throughout the day.

Huge thanks to the Women Engineers who switched off to handle finish boat duty and also took home the inaugural Franny Charles Team Race Regatta. Many thanks to the visiting coaches for participating and especially to Dan Tucker who was in charge of the boats and the sailing pavilion.

Franny Charles, MIT Sailing Master
