After an up-and-down fall season, the Crimson improved its performance in the spring. The young team, which fielded only two seniors, looked toward a number of inexperienced sailors to skipper and did not repeat last year’s success at the national level.
The Harvard sailing team, shown above in earlier action, competed in its first regatta of the spring season over the weekend, as it hosted the Sharpe Trophy. The Crimson squad, which boasts a roster comprised of mostly underclassmen, finished in fourth place with a 5-8 record. Six sailors competed for Harvard, which fell to No. 2 Yale, No. 9 Brown, MIT.
