CHARLESTON, S.C. – In its opening event of the spring season, Harvard women's sailing finished fourth at the Charleston Women's Interconference Regatta.

Racing FJs and 420s, Sophie Bermudez and Ashleigh Inglis posted a seventh-place result in the A-division that included five top-five finishes and 12 top-10 marks. The duo was in second place in the top flight after three races, but after five-straight finishes out of the top-five, fell off the pace of the leaders. Finishing strong, Bermudez and Inglis ended the final two races in third and fourth place.

Taylor Ladd and Emma Wheeler came in second in the B-division, hovering near the top of the leaderboard for the entire regatta. The tandem crossed the finish line in the top-five 10 times, including seven top-three results. Ladd and Wheeler were tied for first after five races, but fell to second after a strong push from Georgetown. The pair stayed as the runner-up for the remainder of the event.
