Bergsund served as skipper for most of the regatta in the B division, with Drumm taking over in the final race, with Polak and White splitting time as crew. In the second race, Bergsund and Polak secured a third-place finish, while Drumm and White took second in the last race of the weekend. The foursome completed the regatta with 120 points. The Crimson finished with 240 points total, placing 19th. The Roger Williams Hawks took the Moody Trophy, beating out second-place Tufts by four.
