College Sailing: Best of the Best

Published on June 17th, 2014

While the Inter-Collegiate Sailing Association divides the USA into seven districts, it was the New England Inter-Collegiate Sailing Association (NEISA) which produced the two prominent individual award winners from the 2013-14 season. Here Sailing World reports on the recipients…

College Sailor of the Year
Just finishing his junior year at Yale, Graham Landy has accomplished more than most will in their entire college sailing career. He has already been named to the ICSA All-American team all three years, including NEISA Rookie of the Year his freshman year. Landy has shown in just three years that the sky is his limit. “It feels great to have accomplished so much thus far in college sailing. I’m very fortunate to have the support of a great coaching staff and teammates at Yale; none of this would have been possible without them.” – Full report

Quantum Women’s College Sailor of the Year

NEISA’s very own “it” girl, Deirdre Lambert has snagged yet another Quantum Women’s College Sailor of the Year award. With the team’s base camp frozen over nearly the entire season, it is truly a wonder how Lambert maintained focus and determination during the 2014 Spring season at Dartmouth. “I am extremely honored to receive the Quantum Women’s Sailor of the year award again, especially being a finalist alongside Morgan Kiss and Erika Reineke – both very talented sailors. This year, I was focused more on helping the team do the best we could than winning the award again, but it is a great honor and a success for the entire team.” – Full report
