College Sailing Chalk Talk: Season 11, Episode 4

Published on October 22nd, 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, the Yale Elis reiterated why they are (and will likely to continue to be) ranked #1 on the Sailing World College Rankings, winning both the coed four-division Navy Fall and the Yale Women’s Interconference simultaneously. In the six divisions between the two regattas, they racked up three firsts, two seconds and a fourth.

Up at Dartmouth, Boston College grabbed this year’s Capt. Hurst Bowl, winning both divisions in style—Junior Raul Rios took four consecutive bullets to end Sunday and put the team out of reach. BC’s Erika Reineke and Beth Barnard also won A division at Yale by a significant margin, but with their regular B division skipper absent, the Lady Eagles finished 3rd overall.

Treasure Island, located on San Francisco Bay, hosted 28 varsity squads and 18 JV squads for this year’s Stoney Burke Interconference, hosted by UC Berkeley with help from Cal. The standout performance came from UC Santa Barbara, with a six race perfect score in B division (K. Swanson, S. Long, G. Rickson, M. Thomas) and a near perfect five-out-of-six score in A division (I. Stokes, M. Thomas, A. Ivory.) This super deep team fielded a second varsity team who finished sixth, and five JV teams, all finishing in the top seven.

On the upcoming weekend, Stanford hosts PCCSC’s Singlehanded Championships and Women’s Doublehanded Champs simultaneously, and MAISA and SAISA hold Match Race Champs. The interconference regattas are the Hoyt at Brown, the Kathryn Hammond at Texas, and the Stu Nelson Women’s at Connecticut College. Also this weekend, the Naval Academy hosts the McMillan Cup in its massive Navy 44’s.
