The Bulldogs approach their big weekend of the season, competing in the showcase finals at St. Mary's College of Maryland. The best teams from around the country compete at this regatta. Yale sailors will also compete in Boston and in Fairfield, Conn.

 

The forecast for the weekend shows very heavy winds, so some skippers are likely to 'heavy up' to bigger crews.

 

Sailing for Yale:

 

Showcase Finals – St. Mary's

Team 1

(A)  Nic Baird / Sonia Lingos-Utley (Graceann Nicolosi in breeze)

(B)  Shawn Harvey / Graceann Nicolosi (Sam Tobin) – Nick Hernandez will be on reserve.

Oberg - MIT

(A)  Nicholas Marwell / Helena Ware

(B)  Dylan DiMarchi / Catherine Webb (Becca Rose)

(C)  Christophe Chaumont / Anisha Arcot (Meredith Ryan)

Fairfield Cup

(A)  Jonathan Schwartz / Kathleen Wells

(B)  Jacob Asher / Allison Rice

(C)  Emery Wallace / Alexandra Contomichalos

 

The showcase finals will be the same level of competition as the nationals, and will provide a good look for how the team has developed over the season.

 

Sailors will face very heavy wind conditions in all venues. Strong breeze is not something that has been seen at events so far, so different teams should show up at the top of the leader board.
