Cambridge, MA—4/2/17-Charles Lalumiere ‘17, Rebecca McElvain ‘19 of Dartmouth College are the NEISA Sailors of the Week. Lalumiere and McElvain helped lead the Big Green to victory at the 36th Lynne Marchiando Trophy Team Race hosted by MIT over the weekend.  Dartmouth finished with a 12-2 record, winning every race in the first Gold round robin, and faltering only in their races against Hobart and Williams Smith and Boston College in the second Gold round. Their consistency in a variety of conditions helped them achieve their best team racing result of the season.
