NEWPORT BEACH, CALIF. (November 19, 2018) – The Intercollegiate Sailing Association (ICSA) Match Race National Championship for the Cornelius Shields, Sr. Trophy was completed yesterday after three days of racing. Boston College came away the winner for the second year in a row.


HOLLAND, MICH. (November 4, 2018) – The LaserPerformance Men’s and Women’s Singlehanded National Championships, hosted by Grand Valley State University and Hope College at the Macatawa Bay Yacht Club and Macatawa Bay Junior Association in Holland, Michigan wrapped up today with Henry Marshall (Auburndale, Mass.), a freshman at Harvard University winning the Men’s Championship and Christina Sakellaris (Milton, Mass.), a sophomore at Stanford University wining the Women’s Championship


There are moments, small and large, that cumulatively define a college sailor’s experience. It is hard to predict when these moments will materialize as something more than a single race or regatta. But if one had to guess, regattas like the War, Schell and Urn tend to hold their own place in the minds of college sailors past and present.

#1 Brown University won the Victorian Coffee Urn Trophy hosted by Bowdoin University.

HOLLAND, MICH. (October 31, 2018) – The LaserPerformance Men’s and Women’s Singlehanded National Championships, hosted by Grand Valley State University and Hope College at the Macatawa Bay Yacht Club and Macatawa Bay Junior Association in Holland, Michigan are set to begin Friday, November 2nd with registration, boat assignment and a competitors meeting. Racing will take place Saturday, November 3rd and Sunday, November 4th.


The Fiske-Harriman-Sleigh Trophy or the Coed Showcase Finals was a tale of two days. The two extremes that bookend sailing in general, light and breezy. Saturday’s light air rewarded the feather-weight quick and mentally resolute sailors while Sunday pushed the nation’s best to test their mettle against the elements in 18-28 knot winds.

The Coed Showcase Finals is a new rendition of the classic Atlantic Coast Championship. It even carries the namesake of the ACC’s trophy, the Fiske, Harrington, Sleigh. Like the ACCs, the Showcase Finals displayed the best in the nation. However, unlike the ACCs, where each conference on the East Coast gets a set number of berths, the teams at the Showcase Finals are derived from a semi-final format or two 18 team regattas advancing the top-9 from each to the finals, allowing Stanford to get in the mix.
