No. 1 Bulldogs Leading After First Day of Racing at National Championship
ANNAPOLIS, Md. - With ten races completed, the women's sailing team is sitting in first place at the Sperry Top-Sider College Sailing National Championship.
Conditions today were especially challenging and much different from what the Bulldogs experienced in the semifinals. The wind came from a northeasterly direction at speeds of 5-10 knots. Considerable chop and shifty breeze made for a tough day of racing.
The Bulldogs are sitting in second place in both divisions, but the scores combined put them in first place with a three-point lead over the No. 2 Dartmouth Big Green and a 38-point margin between themselves and the third place team, the No. 4 Navy Midshipmen.
The regatta wraps up tomorrow with no race beginning after 5 p.m. The first race is scheduled for 9:30 a.m. Follow results at http://scores.collegesailing.org/s14/sperry-top-sider-women-nationals/.
