HANOVER, N.H. – The Dartmouth sailing team competed in three regattas over the weekend taking first in the Lynne Marchiando Team Race for the Big Green’s first interconference team race victory since 2002. On April 6-7, 2002, Dartmouth took first in the Ted Ferrarone Team Race, a second tier national event.
This past weekend, a contingent of sailors traveled to Boston where Dartmouth captured the trophy with a 12-2 record, edging out Ivy League foe Yale and Boston College who finished second and third. The Big Green were represented by Robert Floyd, Charles Lalumiere, Duncan Williford, Madeleine Cooney, Rebecca McElvain and Paige Clarke. Saturday brought wind and snowy conditions for sailors, but Dartmouth was able to go undefeated in the first round robin of the regatta. On Sunday, the weather improved with a light, but sailable wind. Again, the Big Green performed well dropping just two races enroute to the victory.
Dartmouth also traveled to Providence, Rhode Island for the Dellenbaugh Women’s Trophy regatta where the Big Green finished 15th with 187 points. Brown, the host school, took the top spot with 46 points, while the Bulldogs and College of Charleston rounded out the top three. Representing Dartmouth in Division A were Emma White and Peninah Benjamin, while Audrey Giblin and Sophia Diserio sailed in Division B. The Big Green recorded three top five finishes across both divisions including a second place finish in Division A.
A group of sailors also headed south this weekend to New London, Connecticut for the Camel Team Race where Dartmouth finished sixth. Roger Williams won the event with an 8-2 record, followed by Fordham and the host school, Connecticut College. Erik Weis, Alyssa Berger, Jack McGraw, Mary Amis, Noah Simmons and James Bonham represented the Big Green. High winds and freezing temperatures canceled racing events on Saturday. The regatta resumed on Sunday where Dartmouth notched wins over Yale and the host school.
The Big Green return to action next weekend with multiple events in multiple locations.
