College Sailing Chalk Talk – Season 9, Episode 6
Published on November 7th, 2013
Chris Love provides this report on the Inter-Collegiate Sailing Association (ICSA) 2013-2014 season along with his weekly Chalk Talk video:
This week in college sailing, the three powerhouse conferences from the east coast held their fall dinghy championships, which also determine who will compete in the Atlantic Coast Championship Nov 16-17. Dartmouth claimed a come-from-behind victory away from Tufts in New England, Georgetown captured the win in the Mid Atlantic, and College of Charleston won the South Atlantic Championship at home on the Cooper River, where they will also host ACC’s.
Also this past weekend, Stanford grabbed a spot at Match Race Nationals, defeating Hawaii at the PCCSC Champs. The women’s team from the U.S. Naval Academy won the Victorian Urn at Harvard, and Tufts grabbed the Freshman-Only Nickerson Trophy.

Friday begins the first national championship regattas of the school year, the ICSA / LaserPerformance Men’s and Women’s Singlehanded Championships (Nov. 8-10) hosted by Brown and Salve Regina Universities at Sail Newport. The favorite for the Women’s Champs, sailed in Laser Radials, is sophomore Erika Reineke from Boston College, who won last year as a freshman. The men’s race in Laser Standard Rigs is more highly contested, with acclaimed sailors such as Ian Barrows (Yale ’17), Mitchell Kiss (Yale ’17), Greg Martinez (Georgetown ’16), Juanky Perdomo (Harvard ’17), and others, all vying for the title.
