CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Harvard juniors, Emily Lambert and Alexandra Jumper have been selected as the New England Intercollegiate Sailing Association Women’s Sailors of the Week for March 22. The duo won the A division last weekend at the St. Mary’s Intersectional.

Competing against 17 other teams, Lambert and Jumper finished in the top three in six of 14 races, and in the top seven in all but one race. Saturday’s sailing was described as shifty and puffy, while Sunday’s races were completed in a much lighter wind, yet the Harvard pair remained consistent throughout the regatta, finishing with a low score of 66.

The Harvard women’s sailing team will be on the water March 26-27, competing in the 32nd Women’s Dublin Trophy Team Race, hosted by Tufts.
