College Sailing Chalk Talk: Conference Championship Season
Published on April 22nd, 2015
Chris Love provides this update on the Inter-Collegiate Sailing Association 2014-2015 season along with his weekly Chalk Talk video report:
This week in college sailing we saw a good chunk of the nationals roster get filled thanks to several conference championships. University of Wisconsin hosted a three-day regatta for both the Midwest’s Coed and Team Racing championships, going undefeated in team racing and finishing with nearly half the score of the nearest team in coed racing. Tulane hosted SEISA Coed and narrowly defeated Texas A&M Galveston with a tiebreaker. Finally, the Pacific Coast has its women’s nationals lineup set after a gorgeous weekend of racing in Santa Barbara. Stanford won the event for the tenth year in a row!
Teams qualified for Nationals:
MCSA Coed: Wisconsin, Michigan, Minnesota, Washington U., Notre Dame
MCSA Team: Wisconsin, Michigan
SEISA Coed: Tulan, Texas A&M Galveston, University of Texas
PCCSC Women: Stanford, UC Santa Barbara, Santa Clara, Hawaii
Also this past weekend were the Thompson Trophy and Navy Spring on the east coast, and the Rainier Cup on the west coast, all coed fleet racing interconference events. The winning schools were Yale, Georgetown, and University of Washington, respectively. A small fleet of women’s teams gathered at Boston University for the President’s Trophy, also won by Yale.
This upcoming weekend brings more conference championships with Women’s Champs scheduled for all three east coast conferences, as well as team racing in NWICSA and SEISA.
