The Brown Bears have won the MIT side of the two-part Coed Showcase Semifinals, the qualifying regatta for the Showcase Finals to be sailed at St. Mary’s College in two weeks, October 20-21. The top-9 teams from the event will advance to the finals. Another 18 team regatta, held at Harvard, took place simultaneously to decide the other 9 team that will sail in the Showcase Finals.
According to Fran Charles, Sailing Master at MIT, “Light winds from the ENE to SE at 3-7 knots made for trickly, slow sailing on the Charles [Saturday]. The Brown Bears were extremely consistent with light and variable SW breeze which eventually clocked all the way into the NE today [Sunday].”
