Chris Klevan provides this week's update on activity in the Inter-Collegiate Sailing Association (ICSA).
Jen Harris Navy Fall Women's Regatta
, hosted by the United States Naval Academy, was won by the #5 College of Charleston after 17 races sailed in each of the three divisions. This is the lone, three division women’s regatta that featured FJs and Z420s in A- and B-Divisions, and Laser Radials in C-Division.
Sailing in a choppy southerly, the Cougar Ladies showed their versatility by scoring a 2nd in the Laser Radial, a 4th place finish in A-Division and a win by Cougar’s B-Division boat of Paris Henken, Annacel Carrington, and Elizabeth Mignon.
The all-junior-boat, after starting the event with a 10th place finish, strung nothing but top-10s throughout the remainder of the event, including 13 top-3 finishes. They won a competitive B-Division fleet decisively with 51 points in 17 races, 35 points ahead of the next closest boat.
Senior Lindsey Baab won the C-Division with 67 points after 17 races, wit the Brown Senior looking tough in preparation for her final college sailing Laser campaign. Her C-Division victory helped the #9 Brown Bears finish 2nd overall at the event.
