College Sailing Chalk Talk: Season 11, Episode 7

Published on November 12th, 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 College of Charleston and Boston College took home the LaserPerformance Men’s and Women’s Singlehanded National Championships respectively. Charleston freshman Stefano Peschiera won the Glen S. Foster Trophy in exciting fashion, attacking regatta leader Luke Muller (Stanford ’18) on the starting line in the final race to claim the title. BC’s junior Erika Reineke captured the Janet Lutz Trophy for the third year in as many tries.

The Charleston Cougars also won the Kennedy Cup over the weekend, which is College Sailing’s Big Boat National Championship sailed in Navy 44’s at the US Naval Academy. They will represent the United States in next summer’s Student Yachting World Cup.

Also this week, ten teams from around the country are sailing keelboats, practicing for this weekend’s three-day Match Race National Championship in Sonars on Oyster Bay, Long Island, NY. Georgetown looks to defend its 2013 title, but several other seasoned squads are prepared to challenge them for it this year. The rest of the nation’s top teams will be sailing the coastal dinghy championships including the Atlantic Coast Coed and Women’s Champs at Coast Guard and MIT respectively, and the Pacific Coast Champs hosted by UC Santa Barbara.

This is the final weekend of competition save for a few regattas scheduled over the winter. College sailing will start back up again for most schools at the end of March.
