Sailing Readies for Three Regattas

CAMBRIDGE, Mass.—The Harvard sailing team sets off for three regattas this weekend, Oct. 13-14, competing for the Women's Showcase Finals hosted by Brown, the Capt. Hurst Bowl hosted by Dartmouth, and the Massachusetts Maritime Invitational.


Sailors competing on the Charles and in Buzzards Bay can expect winds between five and 10 knots throughout the weekend, with waves reaching anywhere between one and two feet. Sailors at Dartmouth will see similar conditions to close out the weekend.

The Crimson looks forward to a three-regatta slate next weekend, Oct. 20-21, vying for the AC Showcase Finals hosted by St. Mary's College, the Yale Women's Regatta, and the Oberg Trophy co-hosted by MIT and Northeastern.
