This weekend the Intercollegiate Sailing Association (ICSA) will host the Women’s Team Race National Championship at Stanford University.
This marks the second year of this championship. Twelve teams will be competing for the title! Can Yale University hold the title from last year when they competed at Brown University? Will the College of Charleston or the University of Pennsylvania show their talent as they did not compete in last year’s championship?
The regatta will be held at the Stanford Rowing and Sailing Center in Redwood City, CA, in 420Es and FJs. Each day sailors will be reporting at 9:30 am PDT. The first round of racing is a single round robin with all 12 teams competing against each other. The top six from this round will advance to a round robin followed by a “final four” round robin.
The current forecast shows light winds ranging from West to Northwest. Which teams can execute their light air maneuvers while still holding Play 1? Stay tuned!
