A combination of four hours of sleep and a 500 mile drive equaled a 12th place finish (413 points) for the Harvard varsity sailing team at the Trux-Umstead Regatta last weekend.
The Crimson received an invitation at noon Friday, and the late notification left the squad scrambling for members.
Sailing in the A divison (and tallying 101 total points) for Harvard were Gordon Burnes and Charlene Lee, with Dana Barron replacing Lee in the final two races.
In the B divison, Harvard's W.B. Peale and Jeff Kurland finished with 110 points.
In the C laser (one-manned boat) divison, Harvard's Peter Wagner totaled 92 points. The Crimson's Alex Sutton sailed the first three races and John Pernick the last seven in the D laser division.
The bright spot of the day occured during the last race of the day, when Pernick sailed by his competition to capture first place in the laser divison.
