NEWPORT, R.I. – Harvard coed sailing comfortably qualified for the ICSA National Dinghy Championship with a sixth-place finish at the New England Dinghy Championship. The Crimson finished 33 points ahead of the cutoff pace.
The Crimson sat in the middle of the table through five races in each division, but a strong push helped Harvard climb as high as second in the standings and clinch its spot in the national event.
Sailing in FJs, Andrew Mollerus, Sydney Karnovsky, and Jacob Bradt combined to sail the B-division boat to a second-place result. Mollerus and Karnovsky teamed up for the first 13 races, posting 12 top-eight finishes with one win, while Mollerus and Bradt sailed to first- and fourth-place tallies in the final two contests.
In the A-flight, Brian Drumm and Bradt competed together for the first 13 events, posting seven top-10's with one victory. Marek Zeleski and Karnovsky sailed the final two sprints in the flight to close out the regatta.
Harvard will close its season at the ICSA National Dinghy Championship June 1-4 in Rhode Island, co-hosted by Salve Regina and Brown.
