College Sailing Team Race National Championship


Saturday, May 27:

Day one of the Open Team Race National Championship started with north winds from 4 to 6 knots. After logging about eighteen races, the wind shut down and sent all teams in for a long wind delay. Schools joined in for other forms of team activities

Sunday, May 28:

Day two began with another long wind delay as folks on shore hoped and waited for the late sea breeze to kick in. Race Committee lowered the AP at 12:45 PM and sailors hit Long Island Sound with SSE winds around 5 to 8 knots with a building breeze throughout the day. Teams dueled it out throughout the afternoon, but the race to watch was between Stanford and Yale, as both teams were undefeated going into the race. The pair did not disappoint as boat handling, swift decision-making, and boat speed were key. Stanford started strong off the pin, controlling the left side of the course, and rounded mark 1 in a tight 1,2, 5. On the downwind, Stanford lost control of the 1,2 as constant jibing duels resulted in a foul. After rounding Mark 4, Stanford was able to use their boat speed and control of the left side of the course to get back in control of the 1,2 and was able to finish in a 1,2,5 combination. A full round-robin was complete, but there was a tie for 8th place between U.S. Naval Academy, St. Mary’s College of Maryland, and the University of Pennsylvania. Therefore, a sail-off between the three schools had to occur to decide the top 8. After a fierce battle, St. Mary’s College of Maryland won and moved to the Final 8.

Monday, May 29:

After three days of racing on Long Island Sound, the Harvard Crimson took first place in The Open Team Race National Championship out of the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy. The final day of the Championship delivered more challenging conditions with shifting breeze and large swells and winds starting out of the north from 10-15 knots.

Wednesday, May 31- The final results reflected here have been amended from the original results at the conclusion of the Championship. Harvard retired after finishing from race 141 giving Brown an additional win. This change moves Brown to 3rd place and Yale to 4th overall.
