HANOVER, N.H. — With first place finishes in both the A and B Divisions, the Dartmouth women's sailing team came away with a first place victory at the Connecticut College Women's Invite over the weekend. The A squad of Deirdre Lambert and Carissa Crawford scored just 27 points, while the B group of Chandler Salisbury and Madi Gamble followed up with 63 for a combined score of 90, a solid 47 points ahead of second place team Brown.
The Big Green competed in four other regattas on the weekend, tallying strong finishes in several others as well. At the Hewitt Trophy, hosted by Bowdoin, Dartmouth placed third of 15 teams with a combined score of 131. The B Division won their race (35 pts), while the A squad finished ninth (96 pts). The University of Vermont was the overall champion.
At the Jesuit Trophy at Fordham, the Big Green were seventh of 16 (6th, B Division; 8th, A Division), while Fordham was the overall winner.
"Although the conditions were light, the race committee did a great job accommodating the changing wind direction," said sophomore sailor Lexi Krupp. "We did a good job being patient, given the conditions. Sarah Peck and Hope Wilson had killer boat speed and we all got some great starts off."
Additionally, Dartmouth raced in the Danmark Trophy and the Tufts Central Series 3 on the weekend. In the Danmark, the Big Green took 11th of 20 teams with a combined score of 188. Their luck ran out at Tufts, however, ending in a tie for last place with 180.
"The conditions of the Thames River at Danmark were pretty tough, with the strong adverse current and light, shifty breeze both days," remembers sophomore Scott Houck. "Sunday brought even lighter wind and with the course set very close to the submarine channel, the racing was quite different than the day before."
Dartmouth is back on the water this weekend, racing in three regattas Oct. 5-6.
