CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – The Harvard sailing team finished fourth at the Hap Moore Trophy, hosted by Coast Guard. The regatta was one of two-team race, round-robin style regattas the Crimson participated in over the weekend, also hosting the Horn Trophy.

Harvard competed against 11 schools at the Moore Trophy, winning a total of nine races while dropping seven in route to its fourth-place finish. Seven Crimson athletes sailed in the event: Alan Palmer, Quincy Bock, John Stokes, Tedd Himler, Brendan Kopp, Alma Lafler and William White. Boston College won the regatta, winning 15 races and only losing one. A total of 96 races were completed over the course of the two-day event.

The Crimson also hosted four teams for the Michael Horn Trophy over the weekend. Five pairs of Harvard sailors competed for the Crimson. Brown would win the Horn Trophy, beating Tufts, 2-0, in the grand final. Boston College would capture third after downing Harvard, 2-0, in the third-place match.

Harvard is slated to compete in the Women's Atlantic Coast Championship and the Atlantic Coast Dinghy Championship this weekend.
