Crimson Yachtmen Lead Heats In Brown Invitation Regatta
Nicholas, Willcox Score 81 Points; Princeton and Tech Follow Up
Crimson shippers ran away with the silver yesterday on the tickets River when they totalled 81 points against six other Universities during the Brown Invitation Regatta.
Sailing ten foot Dyer Dinghys in a fluky wind that died before the day was out, George Nicholas and Roger Wilcox, Harvard representatives in Classes A and B, led the heats around a short windward - leeward course that took about an half-hour to sail.
Princeton followed up closely with 75 points, and Tech, with 73, nosed out Brown, which was disqualified for a foul in the last four races. Dartmouth Yale, and Williams were also represented, but failed to show brilliance.
The races started at 1:30 and continued until the wind died late in the afternoon. Five were scheduled, but the fifth was called off for of wind. Prizes were silver trays.
