HANOVER, N.H. – The Dartmouth sailing team had two co-ed groups and one women’s group compete in three New England regattas over the weekend.
At the Lynn Marchiando Trophy hosted by MIT, Erik Weis, Eloise Burn, Paige Clarke, Sophia Diserio, Audrey Giblin, Rebecca McElvain, Jack McGraw, Chris Williford and Duncan Williford all competed for the Big Green in a field of 16 total teams. Boston College took the win, while Yale came in second and Bowdoin finished third, as Dartmouth finished 10th ahead of Brown, Boston University and Tufts.
The second co-ed group representing the Big Green competed in the Camel Team Race hosted by Tufts just down the road. Max Clapp, Noah Simmons, Michael Tellini, Mary Amis, Sarah Chong and Christopher Cheng sailed in the green and white and finished fifth out of six teams, a very small field of competition. Tufts came in first while Roger Williams took second and the US Coast Guard Academy finsished third.
In the largest regatta of the weekend, the all-women team that traveled to Brown to participate in the Dellenbaugh Women’s Trophy faced some fierce competition. Peninah Benjamin, Emma White, Kathryn Hall and Lisa Genthner traveled to Brown to participate in the 18-team field. Dartmouth finished 17th overall after struggling in the B division, as the host Bears took the win, while Stanford came in second and Yale finished third.
All three regattas hosted the same competition the Big Green will see next weekend at the New England Dinghy Tournament, and head into the last few weekends of spring action before the final championship events.
Dartmouth returns to the water this weekend at two regattas in Connecticut and the New England Tournament hosted by Mass Maritime.
