Bowdoin sailing completed last weekend with impressive performances by both the coed and women's teams.

The women's team raced at Dartmouth, competing in the Mrs. Hurst Bowl regatta, and finished in third place with a total score of 53 points.

"The standout performance of the weekend was our women's B Division performance at the Hurst," wrote Head Coach Frank Pizzo in an email to the Orient. "First year Kaylee Schwitzer sailing with Ayaka Okawa '14 won B division with seven points."

Yesterday, the pair was named Women's Sailors of the Week by the New England Intercollegiate Sailing Association.

The coed team sailed to a strong finish as well, coming in fifth at the Lake Champlain Open after a three-way tie with Salve Regina University and Providence College. Pete Edmunds '14, Mae Speight '13, captain Jeff Goodrich '12 and Clare Henry '12 sailed at the open.

The sailing team also competed in a third regatta over the weekend, the Middlebury Cup. But due to light wind, the sailors were only able to complete five of the six necessary races, preventing the regatta from officially counting.

"They would have done well if they finished," said Kim Dempsey '14, who sailed with Katie Doble '13 in the A Division of the Mrs. Hurst Bowl.

"It is early yet, but we think we can compete on the national scale with both of our teams," wrote Pizzo. "The team has had a promising start and the next few weekends will be important indicators of how strong we are."
