Hello College Sailing Nationals enthusiasts! This is our first update on Nationals 2017- as always ANY questions are welcome. Please do not hesitate.

Sub-freezing temperatures and gale-force winds kept NEISA from racing, however, team racing is heating up elsewhere in the first weekend of March. The weekend was headlined by the Bob Bavier Team Race. 10 teams made the trip to Charleston for a refreshingly cool weekend of sailing. After 102 races, The College of Charleston Cougars came away from their home event victorious with an 18-3 record.

College Sailing kicks off the Spring Season! Boston University Terriers charge to the win at College of Charleston Women's Regatta, the UCSB Gauchos pull out a gritty win over Stanford at the McIntyre Team Race, and the USF Bulls won the Mendleblatt Team Race at home.

Brought to you by Dynamic Dollies, Sail1Design would like to welcome everyone to the spring team race season! This discipline in college sailing is growing more popular every year. Sailors love the short course, fast pace, expert boat handling required, and of course, team work.

We reached out to five college coaches and asked them to rank the top ten teams in the ICSA, and then give us some comments on each team.

REVISION: In yesterday's press release it stated that Erika Reineke won the LaserPerformance Women's Singlehanded Nationals four consecutive times, however, Haddon Hughes '19 (Georgetown University) won the 2015 LaserPerformance Women's Singlehanded Nationals and Reineke the three years previous. It also needs to be clarified that Annie Haeger '12, Boston College, is not the only woman to win the Women's Singlehanded Nationals three times. Haeger is one among three others; Danielle Brennan (St. Mary's College of Maryland), Margaret Gill (Harvard University) and Anna Tunnicliffe (Old Dominion University); to have done so, she is the only one from Boston College to have achieved this success.
