CHARLESTON, S.C. – The Dartmouth sailing team returned to the water this weekend after the winter break, opening the Spring season with the Charleston Women’s Regatta in Charleston, South Carolina.
The Big Green finished fourth out of 18 schools with 117 points. Boston University took the top spot with 100 points, followed by Brown with 114 and Stanford with 115.
After arriving in the Palmetto State, the Big Green were able to get a practice round in before Saturday’s competition. The first day on the water brought a variety of wind conditions and a strong current. On Sunday sailors had to contend with another strong current but a lighter breeze of 5-12 knots.
The Big Green recorded three top five finishes in Division A and added six across Division B with three victories.
Dartmouth returns to the water next weekend with multiple events in multiple locations.
