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.

The College Sailing season is upon us and with it came the end of summer as hot, sticky air was replaced by cool conditions reminding sailors of moments preparing in the boat park, listening to halyards rattle as anxieties heighten. Hopefully you are as excited as I am.

This newest edition of the College Sailing season comes with a new adjusted schedule that begins with three weeks largely consisting of intraconference regattas that, perhaps, will make new feel like old.


Jeff Knowles, who incurred a kite boarding accident on San Francisco Bay which kept him underwater for at least 10 minutes, succumbed to his injuries early on June 7.

Jeff grew up sailing at Ida Lewis Yacht Club in Newport, RI and competed in regattas around the country. He sailed on the St George’s high school team and was named an All-State Sailor before joining the Brown University Sailing Team where he became Team Captain, an honorable mention All-American, and an Academic All-American. He relocated to California to attend UC San Francisco to pursue a PhD in Neuroscience.

“Jeff passed away at far too young an age,” shared Dan Rabin, Brown University Assistant Sailing Coach. “I coached Jeff in sailing at Brown University, where he graduated in 2010. He was an incredibly free spirit both on and off the water. I’ve never seen anyone quite like him.
