The Brown Bears have won the MIT side of the two-part Coed Showcase Semifinals, the qualifying regatta for the Showcase Finals to be sailed at St. Mary’s College in two weeks, October 20-21. The top-9 teams from the event will advance to the finals. Another 18 team regatta, held at Harvard, took place simultaneously to decide the other 9 team that will sail in the Showcase Finals.

According to Fran Charles, Sailing Master at MIT, “Light winds from the ENE to SE at 3-7 knots made for trickly, slow sailing on the Charles [Saturday]. The Brown Bears were extremely consistent with light and variable SW breeze which eventually clocked all the way into the NE today [Sunday].”

William Smith College won the Women's Showcase Semifinals at St. Mary’s College of Maryland decisively over second place MIT, 56 to 82 points respectively. William Smith, the third place finisher at last year’s Gill Women’s National Championship, is led by A-Division skipper and senior, Bailey Carter. Ms. Carter, who walked away with the regatta, winning A-Division by 30 points after 9 races, finished with 17 points. Carter, sailing primarily with a freshman, Sarah Smith, bested Isabella Loosbrock of Boston College and Louisa Nordstrong of Yale which puts Carter at the top of the extremely premature watchlist for this year’s Quantum Women’s Sailor of the Year.

As light and variable conditions were afflicting dinghy sailing on the east coast, sailors strong and determined enough to be proficient in the Laser Radial and Laser Full Rig classes had their sights set on a berth at two of College Sailing’s 6 National Championships. The two events, Men’s and Women’s Singlehanded Championships, hosted by Hope College and Grand Valley State University, will sail either in Macatawa Bay, a small bay in Holland Michigan or on the eastern shore of Lake Michigan, November second through the fourth. Needless to say, the conditions expected on Lake Michigan in November likely will add to the already hardcore nature of the Laser- a singlehanded boat stripped down so that the college athlete has no one to turn to as they face the elements.
