Last Time on the Water
In his fourth collegiate regatta, Juan Carlos Perdomo became the first freshman in Harvard sailing history to earn the Griswold Trophy at the Inter-Collegiate Sailing Association Singlehanded Championships. The runner-up performance was the first time a Harvard sailor finished second at the national championship since Clay Johnson '08 did so in 2005.

The then No. 11 coeds competed at three regattas a week ago: 2nd Sister Ester Open, Hap Moore Trophy and the Mike Horn Trophy.
