Newport Beach, CA (November 16, 2018) – Day two of the ICSA Match Race Nationals was much like the first, with light breeze and large wave swells. The course was again set below the Newport Beach Pier, not too far off the beach.

Newport Beach, CA (November 16, 2018) – A lovely Southern California day greeted the 10 teams as they arrived for day one of the 2018 ICSA Match Race Nationals for the Cornellius Shields Sr. Trophy. Racing began at around 11:30 in a light but raceable southerly breeze, with the sailing area on the south side of the Newport Beach pier.  

Marshall and Sakellaris Win LaserPerformance College Sailing Men’s and Women’s Singlehanded National Championships
November 04, 2018

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


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.




The Mid-Atlantic Conference single handed championship, the Carl Van Duyne Trophy was held at the US Naval Academy in provided boats. The top five finishers of the 18 boat regatta would move on to sail the national championship in Michigan, November 2-4.

A freshman, Leo Boucher of St. Mary’s college took the event in the late stages of Sunday, edging Thomas McCann ‘22 of Georgetown and Charles Carraway ‘22 of Hobart. Boucher started slow with 23 points after the first 3 races. However, Mr. Boucher recovered impressively, finishing in the top-5 in 11 of the final 12 races sailed, including three first place finishes. Boucher finished with 51 points. McCann and Carraway finished with 55 and 56 respectively.




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.
