CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Racing FJs in Rhode Island, Harvard coed sailing recorded a pair of top-10 division finishes en route to an 11th-place finish at the Moody Trophy over the weekend.
Skipper Michael Drumm and crew Kevin Coakley manned the A-division boat, sailing to a 10th-place finish in the top flight. The duo placed in the top-10 in four of ten races, logging their best result with a second-place showing in the seventh race of the regatta.
In the B-division boat, skipper Marek Zeleski and crew Emma Wheeler took eighth place. The tandem recorded eight top-10 finishes, including a win in the ninth race of the competition. The pair was quick to establish themselves at the top of the leader board early after recording top-five finishes in each of the first two races, but slipped back a bit as the regatta wore on.
The Crimson returns to the water for five regattas October 18-19. Harvard will sail at the Navy Fall Invitational, Captain Hurst Bowl, Firefly and FJ Invitational, Norm Reid Trophy Team Race and Lane Trophy Team Race.
