CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Juniors Andrew Mollerus and Sydney Karnovsky sailed to victory in the Hood Trophy B-division to help Harvard coed sailing to a fourth-place team finish in the regatta. The duo finished in the top four of each race, including one victory to top Brown by seven points.

Michael Drumm and Kevin Coakley recorded a tenth-place result in the A-division, including a pair of sixth-place finishes. The regatta was shortened to four races per division due to lack of wind.

The women's team competed at the President's Trophy, where it came in sixth place. Sophie Bermudez and Ashleigh Inglis raced to fourth in the B-division, while Taylor Ladd and Kristina Jakobson took 10th in the A-flight. In a regatta shortened to just three contests per division, the Crimson combined for top-ten results in five of the six races.

Marek Zeleski and Juan Carlos Perdomo represented the Crimson at the NEISA Singlehanded Championships, where they worked to seventh and 10th-place finishes, respectively. Zeleski started off the regatta with a victory, and recorded top-10 finishes in 11 of the 12 races, while Perdomo won the third race of the day, and sailed to eight top-10 results.

Harvard will sail in six regattas October 4-5, including the second Harvard Invitational of the year. The Crimson will also sail at the NEISA Women's Singlehanded Championships, for the Danmark, Olympians, and Smith Trophies, and at Central Series Four.
