Day 1 of the College Sailing Women’s Nationals started off with a stiff northerly breeze. With 10 races anticipated for A and B divisions, all sailors arrived to the race course in 10 to 15 knots. As forecasted, the breeze did drop throughout the day and sailors were challenged with oscillating conditions - it was truly a “Heads out of the boat” kind of day. Teams that stayed in phase were rewarded. The current remained a factor on the course as well providing another level of difficulty for teams to consider. Sailing wrapped up at 5pm with 10 races being completed for both divisions. -Amanda Clark, PRO
Sailors waiting all day for breeze that unfortunately never filled.
Yale's Carmen Cowles, Megan Grimes, Ximena Escobar, and Anisha Arcot won A division. Stanford's Vanessa Lahrkamp, Grace Austin, and Abigail Tindall had an incredible showing, winning B Division by 30 points.
Congratulations to Stanford for winning in dominant fashion, followed by Yale and Boston College to round of the podium.
Many thanks for PRO Amanda Clark for running fantastic races, to Danielle Richards for serving as the ICSA Rep and keeping the coaches in check, and to the judge team of Vicki Sodaro, Kelsey Wheeler, and Tony Weiner.
