The sailing team competed in two regattas last weekend. Finishing seventh out of 18 teams, the windless Admiral’s Cup significantly limited racing. At the Women’s New England Championship, the Polar Bears battled it out with Harvard, ultimately winning a tiebreaker against the Crimson to secure the final qualifying spot for Women’s Nationals. That competition will be hosted by the College of Charleston on May 23. This weekend the team will compete at the New England Dinghy Championships at Boston College on Saturday at 10 a.m.

The decisive win sets the team up well as it will face Tufts again on Saturday at 1 p.m. in the first round of the tournament and look to repeat its strong performance.
