CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – In its last weekend of fall regular season action, the Harvard sailing team earned three top-10 finishes, racing in the Sister Esther Open, the Hap Moore Team Race and the Mike Horn Team Race.

At the Sister Esther Open, the Crimson earned a third-place victory in the 20-team field. Racing in the B-Division, Jonas Nelle and Divya Arya secured a second-place finish with 52 points, finishing in the top-10 in each division race. Dylan Farrell and Lena Episalla contributed 70 points in the A-Division, finishing fourth.

Harvard hosted the Mike Horn Trophy Saturday, Nov. 4. Difficult weather only allowed for one round robin to be sailed, leading to the Crimson's fourth-place finish. Andrew Puopolo, Owen Schafer and Emma Jakobson all competed as skippers, while Zennie Wey, Emily Malpass and Tancredi Castellano sailed as crew. The Crimson collected wins over MIT and Tufts, after falling to Boston College, Brown and Boston University.

Connecticut College hosted the Hap Moore Team Race on the Thames River this weekend. Harvard earned a fifth-place finish, posting a 3/4 record. The Crimson gained wins over Virginia, Roger Williams and Tufts. 

What's Next?
The Crimson compete in its last regatta of the fall season this weekend and return next March for its spring season.
