Week 6: April 14
Although racing was cancelled on Sunday due to bad weather conditions, the Huskies sailing at both regattas had an exciting day of racing on Saturday.
Oberg @ Northeastern
On Saturday, Northeastern hosted the Oberg regatta at MIT and the Huskies entered two teams. Team 1 was comprised of Jackson Hamilton, Jackie Berlin, Kurran Singh, John Hughes, Kyle Riggs, and Becker Ewing and Team 2 consisted of Caleb Niles, Julia Boll, Ben Palmer, Jules Mozzier, Connor O’Neill, David Zymba, and Liz Silva. In addition to the sailors, a pack of Huskies helped to run the regatta with Carter Brock, Donal Ryan, and Greg Corsello on the finish boat; Zachary Bresnick, Romain Astie, and Will Crane on the mark boat; Coleen Ross, Claire Lockard, and alumnus Zach Shapiro helping out on the dock; and Coach Jonathan Farrar running races. The racing started in a tame 8-10 knot breeze from the east, which steadily built throughout the day. Coach Farrar ran 10 long races in each of the three divisions on Saturday, and the decision was made to cancel racing on Sunday due to weather at the end of the day. Both Husky teams faced tough competition throughout the day with Team 1 earning a 7th place finish and Team 2 earning a 15th place finish at the regatta. Highlights from the regatta included some delicious burgers cooked by Will Crane and support by recent alumni and parents who showed up to cheer on the Huskies on this bitter cold New England Saturday.
President's Trophy @ BU
On Saturday, the lady huskies braved a strong and chilly easterly at Boston University. Camille Matile and Katie Alfond started the team off strong with a bullet in the first race of the day. Carolyn Corbet with Annie Wieland and Kelley Phippen in B division followed her lead finishing first in her division. Victoria Pajak and Ellie Reagan finished the last A division set helping NU earn second place overall. The team looks forward to keeping the momentum up as we head into Reed next weekend. On Sunday, sailing was cancelled due to low temperatures and high winds.
