CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – The Harvard sailing team sailed to a sixth-place finish at the Friis Trophy Team Race, while also tallying fourth and fifth-place marks at the NEISA/MAISA Team Race and the BU Team Race Invitational, respectively.

In the weather-shortened Friis Trophy Team Race, the Crimson finished with a 5-6 record claiming its five wins over Yale, Roger Williams, MIT, George Washington, and Dartmouth racing in FJ and Z420 dinghies. Harvard's sixth-place mark was sailed by skippers of Andrew Mollerus, Marek Zaleski, and Nick Sertl, and crews of Sydney Karnovsky, Julia Lord, and Nomin-Erdene Jagdagdorj. Last year the Crimson finished second at the regatta.

The Crimson's fourth-place result at the NEISA/MAISA Team Race included skippers Dylan Farrell, Taylor Ladd, and Nick DiGiovanni, and crews Christine Gosioco, Kevin Coakley, and Lena Episalla sailing in FJ vessels. Harvard finished 9-6 overall tallying three victories over Coast Guard and two over Roger Williams, Yale, and Boston College.

Harvard finished last in the five-team regatta on Sunday with a 1-7 overall mark. The Crimson's lone win was over Roger Williams. Skippers including Nicholas Karnovsky, Jackson Wagner, and Andrew Puopolo, and crews of Adam Brodheim, Divya Arya, and Catherine Tang sailed in FJ vessels in the regatta.

The Crimson will host its second regatta of the spring season with the Central Series 3, while also competing in the BU Trophy (Boston University), Marchiando Team Race (MIT) and the Camel Team Race (Connecticut College) from April 2-3.
