NEW HAVEN, Conn. - After a solid week of training over fall break, the Bulldogs will compete at the Mrs. Hurst Bowl hosted by Dartmouth College on Lake Mascoma. Being an interconference regatta with several schools from outside New England traveling to compete, the Mrs. Hurt will be highly competitive and good training for the Atlantic Coast Championship qualifier held at Harvard next weekend.

Sailing for the Bulldogs will be sophomore skipper Louisa Nordstrom and first-year crew Cate Mollerus in A division. Sophomore skipper Chrissie Klingler will compete with junior crew Kira Woods in B division.

The forecast looks extremely light, with a northwesterly breeze around 5 mph for Saturday's racing and a light southeasterly on Sunday. The past two events held this season at Dartmouth have had little to no wind one day and therefore a small number of races. Hopefully optimal conditions will prevail.

Racing will begin at 10:30 a.m. and can be followed at http://scores.collegesailing.org/f17/mrs-hurst-bowl/.
