College Sailing Chalk Talk: Season 11, Episode 5

Published on October 29th, 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, Mother Nature continued to throw big breeze into the mix on the east coast for the third weekend straight. We’ll see if it happens again for conference championships this coming weekend.

Stanford arguably had the best weekend in the country, as the Cardinal qualified two men (Luke Muller ’18, Kieran Chung ’15) and one woman (Sally Mace ’14) on to the Singlehanded National Championship, while winning the Fall Women’s PCCSC Championship as well. Georgetown defeated St. Mary’s in the finals at the MAISA Match Race Champs, but both qualify for Nationals. In SAISA, Charleston took the win and by one point USF snatched the second spot at their Match Race qualifier, which was run in fleet race format.

Fordham continued to show that they are a legitimate player, winning the Hoyt Trophy. The Rams are carrying a wave of momentum into the War Memorial Regatta (Mid Atlantic Fall Championship) this coming weekend.

On the women’s circuit, Yale sailed incredibly well on Sunday, slowly separating themselves from their rivals and winning the Stu Nelson Trophy at Connecticut College. The Bulldogs will look for three straight wins at the upcoming Victorian Coffee Urn.

It was light wind in Austin, TX for the Kathryn Hammond, but the fleet finished three races in each division. Two USF teams tied for the top two spots, followed by Texas A&M Galveston in third.

Also this week, Navy squeaked past Queens University to win the oldest trophy in college sailing, the McMillan Cup, sailed at the Academy in Navy 44’s.
