Race on Charles Sunday to Open Yachting Season
Charles River breezes will waft the Yacht Club on its way this Sunday in the first of a series of nine regating which will pit the Club against 32 colleges and universities from throughout the nation.
Opposing the yachtsmen Sunday will be teams from Bowdoin, Dartmouth, M.I.T., and Middlebury. As in all its meets on the Charles, the Yacht Club will sail in dinghles borrowed from M.I.T., as the Club lacks funds to outfit its own fleet.
Racing every weekend starting Sunday, the Yacht Club will be pointing for the National Dinghy Championships, scheduled for New London on May 17 and 18. Other key regattas for the sailors will be a dual meet on the Charles against Dartmouth on Sunday, April 20, and another dual meet, this one at New London, against Yale on Saturday, May 3.
On alternate Tuesdays and Thursdays, second team crews from Boston College, Boston University, M.I.T., Tufts, Northeastern, and the Yacht Club will engage in a series of races for the championship of the Charles River Basin Dinghy League.
