College Sailing Chalk Talk – Season 9, Episode 5
Published on October 31st, 2013
Chris Love provides this report on the Inter-Collegiate Sailing Association (ICSA) 2013-2014 season along with his weekly Chalk Talk video:
(October 31, 2013) – In this very windy week in college sailing, the west coast picked its reps for November’s Singlehanded Nationals at Sail Newport: Stanford women Molly McKinney ’14 and Sally Mace ’14 in Laser Radials and Stanford’s Oliver Toole ’14 and UCSB’s Stephen Long ’17 in Laser Standard Rigs. Charleston took the Match Race berth at the South Atlantic Match Race Champs. And in the Mid Atlantic region, the top two match racing teams were Georgetown and St. Mary’s.
Yale is still the best team in college sailing, proving it by winning both of the major interconference regattas in one weekend. The Lady Elis topped the standings the Stu Nelson at Connecticut College while their coed team dominated the Hoyt Trophy at Brown, winning both divisions with a variety of personnel in the boats. In the Southeast, Jacksonville made a big statement winning all but five of the twenty races sailed at the Kathryn Hammond Interconference at Texas.

This upcoming weekend is the last of the regular season for most conferences, with those on the east coast holding their fall dinghy district championships in preparation for the Atlantic Coast Championships in two weeks.
