College Sailing Chalk Talk: Season 11, Episode 2

Published on October 8th, 2014

Chris Love provides this report on the Inter-Collegiate Sailing Association (ICSA) 2014-2015 season along with his weekly Chalk Talk video report:

(October 8, 2014) – This week in college sailing was windy! Up and down the east coast, in the midwest and in Canada, hosts reported extreme winds this past weekend, ranging in the teens and twenties, with the max velocity of 36.8 knots measured in Kingston, Ontario. It was the fifth official weekend of competition, which means we saw a healthy mix of interconference regattas featuring the best teams nationwide and conference championships.

The Mid-Atlantic women had their fall champs at Navy, with Georgetown getting the convincing win thanks to walloping in B division by Katia DaSilva, Katie Olsen, and Elizabeth Mullarney, winning every race in the second half of the regatta. The New England women faced off at Coast Guard for the Singlehanded Champs with an unsurprising result: BC’s Erika Reineke (of US Sailing Team Sperry Top-Sider) won all but one of the 12 races with freshmen Dana Rohde (CGA) and Lindsey Baab (Brown) rounding out the top three. USF won the combined division SAISA Women’s Champs at Miami.

Yale won the Danmark Trophy, a coed interconference regatta and the most competitive of the weekend, also hosted by Coast Guard, led by Senior Graham Landy and supported by sophomore Ian Barrows, stars of last year’s national championship. St. Mary’s took the win at the Jesuit Open.

This upcoming weekend features another slew of stacked inter- and in-conference competition, including the New England Match Racing Champs, Men’s Singlehandeds in the Mid-Atlantic, Navy Fall Women’s Interconference, the Moody Trophy at URI, and the Intercollegiate Offshore Regatta hosted by Larchmont Yacht Club.
