Over the weekend, the sailing team traveled to UNH, Harvard, and MIT, where they faced several competitive teams under less than ideal conditions, placing eighth out of 18 teams at both the Stu Nelson Trophy at MIT and the Oberg Trophy at Harvard. They pulled out a second-place finish at the Wellahan Trophy in New Hampshire. 
“It’s been a good season; we’ve really been plugging away, and it’s all been leading up to this weekend, where we’ll face our league championships,” said Coach Frank Pizzo. 
This weekend, the co-ed team will compete at the Erwin Schell Trophy, which is effectively the fall championship for all the co-ed teams in NEISA (New England Inter-Collegiate Sailing Association). The Bowdoin women’s team will compete for the Women’s Victorian Coffee Urn at Connecticut College, where they’ll face many of the top schools in their division. 
The team expects to finish well; at many of the team’s most recent regattas, Bowdoin has been among the top competitors, and Bowdoin has the potential to repeat their slew of performances at this weekend’s races. 
“We’ve consistently been among the top eight at each competition. Because of how competitive our division is, if you’re top eight in the New England, then you’re top eight in the nation,” Pizzo said.
