With its most important regattas of the fall season scheduled for next weekend, the Harvard sailing team took a break from its normal fleet-racing competition to participate in team racing this past weekend. Team racing is a format of racing in which three boats from each school compete and a school’s cumulative score is added up to determine the winner.
After three weekends of rather limited action, the Harvard sailing team took part in two of the most competitive regattas of the fall, as both the co-ed and women’s squads qualified for their respective Atlantic Coast Championship regattas taking place later this season.
The Harvard sailing team has experienced mixed results throughout this season. While one of its A-division boats may come away from a regatta pleased with its performance, its B-division counterpart may be somewhat disappointed with its less-than-impressive finish. Therefore, it comes as no surprise that the women’s and co-ed squads find themselves in rather different positions and with fairly different mindsets entering the closing weeks of their seasons.
As the semester nears its final weeks, the workload is beginning to pile up for many Harvard students, and for the Crimson sailing team, life is no different. The squad competed in the busiest weekend of its spring campaign, with five regattas held at various campuses around New England.
With spring break now in the rear-view mirror and second semester kicking into high gear, the Harvard sailing team competed in the busiest weekend so far of its young spring campaign this past Saturday and Sunday. The co-ed squad took part in three regattas and the women’s contingent also hit the waters for one competition.
Traveling down to Maryland for Harvard’s annual spring break trip, the co-ed squad competed in its second regatta of the season last weekend, improving on its third place effort from the week before to claim the top spot at the John Jackson Team Race held at Georgetown.
