Week 1: March 10-11
We started off our season in full force with 3 regattas all in the Boston area!
Wood Team Race @ Harvard
Starting the season off with a 3rd place finish at a tough Interconference Team Race, the Huskies continued to build off of their successful Fall, and look to have a strong team racing team this season. Saturday brought cold temperatures and unpredictable winds, often gusting over 20 knots. Sunday was more tempered for team racing with consistent 5-10 knots and occasional gusts of 15. Skippers Jackson Hamilton, Kurran Singh and Kyle Riggs, along with crews Jackie Berlin, John Hughes, Connor O’Neil and Becker Ewing, will look to build on this experience next week at the Gieger Team Race.
Team Race Invite @ MIT
A brisk northwest breeze of 12-22 knots and some snow flurries greeted the Huskies on the Charles River on Saturday morning. Sailors Carolyn Corbet, Julia Boll, Caleb Niles, Marika Van Dusen, John Hughes, Zach Bresnick, and Liz Silva completed 2.5 round robins in tough conditions winning a couple races and improving throughout a very windy and cold day. Sunday was a more calm, sunny day on the river leading to more hard fought races. Having just started our season, the team improved throughout the weekend.
Ice Breaker @ Tufts
At the Ice Breaker Regatta, sailors Ben Palmer, Claire Lockard, Carter Brock, and Jules Mozzer were able to dust off some of the winter rust and get back into racing! The winds at Tuft's averaged to 18 mph, consisting of sporadic puffs and lulls, which gave the Huskies an opportunity to get better at playing the shifts as the regatta progressed. In the future, the team looks to improve upon roll tacking in Larks, as to prepare for the upcoming Camel Team Race at Tufts.
