CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – In its second week of fall competition, Harvard coed sailing recorded a second place finish at the Nevins Trophy. In the 20-team regatta, each of the Crimson duos finished in the top six of their divisions, including a third-place finish in the A-series.

Skipper Brian Drumm and crew Jacob Bradt were towards the top of the group for much of the event, placing in the A-division top-four five times. In the B-series, skipper Andrew Mollerus and crew Sydney Karnovsky won two races in a sixth place overall finish. Marek Zeleski sailed in the singlehanded division, and placed second overall. Zeleski led at the midway point after winning two of the first five races, but was overtaken by a Georgetown boat near the end to finish as the runner up in the group.

The coed team also produced strong results at Central Series Two and the Hatch Brown Trophy. Racing at the second Central Series, skipper Nick Sertl and crew Nomin-Erdene Jagdagdorj finished second in the A-races, while Adam Brodheim and Cara Kennedy Cuomo finished 12th in the B-division to help the Crimson to an eighth-place team finish.

At the Hatch Brown Trophy, Harvard sailed to a 10th-place result as a team. Michael Drumm skippered the A-boat with Rebecca Frankel and Bennett Capozzi serving as the crew, and took 15th-place in the group. Competing in the B-flight, Gram Slattery and Julia Lord bested 13 other teams to take fifth, while Matthew Mollerus and Olivia Kjorlien finished 10th in the C-division.

Harvard's women's team took part at the Mrs. Hurst Bowl, where it fought to a 10th-place result. Sophie Bermudez and Ashleigh Inglis raced to sixth in the B-flight while Taylor Ladd and Kristina Jakobson finished 15th in the A-division.

The Crimson returns to competition with three regattas scheduled for September 27-28 in the Boston area, with Boston College, Boston University and Tufts hosting events.
