At the 112th IRA National Championships, the lightweight crew exceeded expectations and came home with two silver finishes, while the heavyweights fell below the predicted placements and lost grasp of getting a medal.
Although nearly every other Harvard team has wrapped up its season, it is not yet over for the men and women of the Crimson sailing team, which qualified for ICSA National Semifinals by coming in ninth in the Coast Guard Alumni Bowl last month. This marks an improvement from last season, when the Crimson failed to qualify.
