NORFOLK, Va. – Friday evening concluded the 2017-18 season for the Dartmouth sailing team as members of the coed squad competed in the Gill Coed National Championship in the Inter-collegiate Sailing Association.

The Big Green had a stellar performance in the semifinals pushing them to the two days of final races, with the last events on Friday in Virginia. Dartmouth recorded 294 points for 13th place out of 18 teams who were in the finals. Christopher Williford, Rebecca McElvain, Duncan Williford, Paige Clarke, Jack McGraw and Alyssa Berger all sailed in the green and white this week at the event. 

Friday’s finals included some delays from extreme lack of wind as temperatures rose in the afternoon. MIT was crowned the champion as College of Charleston came in second and Georgetown finished third. Ivy League foe Yale placed seventh with 248 points.

Following a spring season with less wins than the fall, the experienced sailors who competed in the national championship made their mark finishing second place in the semifinals after two days of sailing. Dartmouth ended the year ranked ninth in the college rankings by Sailing World.
