College Sailing Chalk Talk: Season 11, Episode 3

Published on October 15th, 2014

Chris Love provides this week’s report on the Inter-Collegiate Sailing Association 2014-2015 season along with his weekly Chalk Talk video report:

This week in college sailing, Yale went from last to first in the New England Match Race Champs, defeating BC in the finals, the team that will join them at Match Race Nationals in November. Nevin Snow (Georgetown ’16) was crowned the Mid-Atlantic Men’s Singlehanded Champ at Navy, with Brendan Shanahan (GW ’17), Addison Hackstaff (Navy ’18), and Will Holtz (Fordham ’17) also qualifying for Nationals. This is the first Nationals berth for GW since the 1950’s!

Also this week, Roger Williams won the Moody Trophy (the top coed event of the weekend) without winning either division. Following their best interconference result of the season, the Washington College squad was apparently hit by a bus on the way home from that event, but sustained only minor injuries.

The Navy Fall Women’s Interconference included divisions for FJ’s, Z420’s and Laser Radials. For St. Mary’s it was the singlehanded division that made the difference, the team riding on the back of senior Catherine Shanahan whose average score of 3.33 was the lowest in the regatta.

Fifty-two teams from Canada, France, and throughout the US competed in five classes at the Intercollegiate Offshore Regatta at Larchmont Yacht Club, with Navy, Michigan, Charleston, Roger Williams and University of Toledo taking home the hardware. Full results.

In this upcoming weekend, UC Berkeley hosts the humongous Stoney Burke, which includes varsity and JV teams, Navy hosts coed teams for the 4-division Navy Fall Interconference, Dartmouth has the Capt. Hurst, and Yale hosts the Women’s event.
