The Bowdoin Sailing team competed in its final regatta of the fall season last Saturday at the Atlantic Coast Tournament in Cambridge, Mass.
Boston University played host to this 16-boat championship intersectional held in FJs on the Charles River. The Polar Bears finished 11th over the course of the two-day event.
Racing early Saturday was delayed due to light winds, but breeze filled in midday, enabling five races to be completed in the A-division and four in the B-division. On Sunday, the Race Committee was forced to suspend competition due to heavy winds and impending boat damage.
The team of Alex Takata '12 and Meredith Steck '09 placed eighth in the A-division, while Pete Wadden '09 and Coco Sprague '11 finished in thirteenth in the B-division.
Bowdoin Sailing completed the fall campaign with a No. 16 spot in the 35-school New England Intercollegiate Sailing Association rankings, finishing narrowly ahead of inter-state competitors Bates and Maine Maritime.
