Sailing Captures Three Top-Five Finishes

CAMBRIDGE, Mass.—Harvard clinched three top-five finishes this weekend, competing in the Sister Esther Open hosted by Salve Regina, the Stu Nelson Trophy hosted by Connecticut College, and the Harvard Co-ed Invitational.

Racing at the Sister Esther Open, the Crimson were locked in fifth place across both divisions, with Henry Marshall and Christine Gosioco competing in the A-Division and Jonas Nelle and Zennie Way sailing in the B-Division. An A-Division tie-breaker between Vermont and Brown ultimately made the difference for the Crimson, propelling them up to a fourth-place finish for the weekend.

At the Stu Nelson Trophy, the duo of Emma Kaneti and Emma Jakobson cruised to third place in the B-Division while Taylor Gavula and Emily Wang secured a solid fifth-place finish in the A-Division for the Crimson. The women closed out the weekend in fifth place, beating out the MIT Engineers by one point.

Closing out the weekend at home, the Crimson hosted the Harvard Co-ed Invitational, capturing fourth place. Henry Burnes and Catherine Tang joined forces in the B-Division, posting an impressive third-place finish to shut out the Rhode Island Rams by a nine-point margin. 

The Crimson sets off for another three-regatta weekend on Saturday, Oct. 13, competing at the Women's Showcase Finals hosted by Brown, the Captain Hurst Bowl hosted by Dartmouth, and the BU Invitational.
