The Huskies headed down to Brown for the Coed Championship this weekend for the last regatta of the spring 2018 season.
Coed Dinghy Championship @ Brown
The Northeastern Sailing Team wrapped up another great season this weekend in Rhode Island for the Co-ed NEISA Championship hosted by Brown University. The 18 best teams in NEISA battled it out for the chance to qualify for the ICSA National Championship. Although the Huskies weren’t able to get into the top 8 to qualify, they still gained priceless experience going up against some of the best sailors in the country. Saturday featured sunny skies and a building sea-breeze out of the South with medium-size waves to contend with. Sunday started light and rainy, but after a morning of drifting around, a relatively steady 5-8 knots filled in out of the West and the sun came out. Overall, 14 well-run races were completed over the two days. Jackson Hamilton and Jackie Berlin held their own in A-division all weekend, while skippers Camille Matile, Kurran Singh, and Kyle Riggs, along with crews, Katie Alfond, John Hughes, and Becker Ewing all rotated through B-division. All of the Huskies are looking forward to a great summer of sailing so we can come back better than ever in the fall!
