Sailors of the Week, Weekend 8, Fall 2014

***Lambert and Greason are the NEISA COED Sailors of the Week***

Cranston, RI—10/25-26/14- Deirdre Lambert ’15 and Nathaniel Greason ’17 from Dartmouth are the NEISA Sailors of the week for their winning B-division performance at the Hoyt Trophy.  The duo showed consistency in a variety of conditions with only one finish outside the top ten.  This consistency was tremendous given the wide range of conditions from light and shifty to racing in over twenty knots. Their performance propelled Dartmouth to a 2nd place finish overall. 

***Kiss and Doris are the NEISA Women’s Sailors of the Week***

New London, CT —10/25-26/14- Yale’s Morgan Kiss ’15 and Natalya Doris ’17 are the NEISA Women’s Sailors of the Week for their A-division win at the Stu Nelson Trophy.  The competition at the Stu Nelson was fierce with many of top teams in the country competing at the event. Kiss and Doris not only sailed well but also held the line on sportsmanship throughout the weekend.
