The Crimson picked up its first regatta victory of the season at the Danmark Trophy and finished second at the Women’s Showcase, which both took place in New London, Conn., over the weekend. The two podium finishes highlighted Harvard sailing’s most successful weekend yet this Fall.

With the Captain Hurst Bowl on the line, each boat of the three divisions was poised to take water one last time. Unfortunately, Harvard did not sail its best in those pivotal races.
Across four competitions in Maryland, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts this weekend, the Crimson was forced to navigate through rough waters.
University spokesperson Aaron M. Goldman wrote in a statement on Tuesday that although the barge beneath the center has been “restored,” the facility will be closed for the remainder of the season.
Diving crews worked over the weekend to temporarily “restore” the Harvard Sailing Center, which began sinking into the Charles River last week in the wake of a strong nor’easter.
