This weekend the Bulldogs travel to Bowdoin College to compete in the NEISA fleet race conference championships. The top eight teams qualify for the national semi-finals in Newport in May.

 

Yale's Team:

 

NEISA Fleet Race Championship – Bowdoin College:

A: Nic Baird / Sonia Lingos-Utley

B: Shawn Harvey / Graceann Nicolosi

Nick Hernandez will come as an alternate skipper

Chrissie Klingler, Sam Tobinand Claudia Loiacono will come as alternate crews.

 

The forecast shows a breezy weekend. It is likely that the heavy crews will start on Saturday, as winds of more than 15 knots are predicted for both days.

 

The event features the best teams from NEISA, but will be weaker than the average interconference event. The No. 1 ranked Yale team looks to beat out strong NEISA teams like No. 5 Boston College and No. 7 Dartmouth. The event concludes with several individual and team awards for year-long achievement.
