#12 George Washington University won the MAISA Women's Fall Dinghy Championship, hosted by SUNY Maritime College. The regatta, on the shores of the East River, was dictated by the breeze, or lack thereof. The 8 race event, therefor was a stressful one for MAISA teams hopeful of a berth to the Women’s Atlantic Coast Championships with only 7 available.

The Colonials of GWU were impressive, finishing in the top-3 in each of the two divisions, including a B-Division victory by Riley Legault ‘19 and Andreea Rainey-Pace ‘20 with 11 total points after 4 races sailed.


#3 Georgetown wins the Truxtun Umsted Regatta, #2 Coast Guard Academy wins the Yale Women’s Interconference, and #4 Boston College are NEISA Match Race Champions.


#5 Charleston women win Navy Fall; #8 HWS and #14 St. Mary’s show strength; The Pacific Coast and the Mid-Atlantic qualify for Singlehanded Nationals

#5 College of Charleston women won the Jen Harris Navy Fall Women's Regatta after 17 races sailed in each of the 3 divisions. The lone, three division women’s regatta featured a laser radial division (C-Division). A regatta hosted by the United States Naval Academy, in a choppy southerly, the Cougar Ladies showed their strength. The victory, despite a 4th place finish in A-Division and a 2nd place finish in the laser division, was largely attributed to the Cougar’s B-Division boat of Paris Henken, Annacel Carrington and Elizabeth Mignon. The all-junior-boat, after starting the event with a 10th place finish, strung nothing but top-10s throughout the remainder of the event, including 13 top-3 finishes. They won a competitive B-Division fleet decisively with 51 points in 17 races, 35 points ahead of the next closest boat.

The PCCSC Single-Handed Conference Championship saw 15 male full-rig sailors and 11 women radial sailors competing for 2 spots in each division that would qualify for the Single-Handed Collegiate National Championship. The PCCSC was excited to welcome University of Nevada at Reno to the conference as they competed in their first regatta.


Thank you to Kylie Sullivan (Former Captain, UCLA Sailing) for the photos of the 2017 PCCSC Singlehanded Championship in Santa Barbara.


#6 College of Charleston won the 75th edition of the Danmark Trophy, held at the Coast Guard Academy in New London, Connecticut. The Danmark, traditionally, is one of the most competitive interconference regattas of the fall season. Scheduled at the beginning of October, it marks the beginning of autumn and the period where the chips start to hit the table with Conference Championships looming at the end of the month.

#13 Dartmouth College won the St. Mary's Fall Interconference with impressive performances in both divisions. Sailed at St. Mary’s College of Maryland, the event marked MAISA’s second major intersectional as the fall season is now in full swing. Many of the nation’s top teams were in attendance and the fleets were mostly filled with college sailing veterans. Dartmouth was one such team, sporting a tandem in A and B-Divisions that may be the Big Green’s top squad.

“The racing was tricky, with pressure filling from the edges and many of the common moves toward consolidating and centering up not as beneficial as normal,” said Dartmouth’s head coach, Justin Assad. “Our team was able to start cleanly most of the time, and focused on being patient and balanced sailing the long tack with finding the next pressure.”

Conditions were light to start the day but halfway through the round robin the breeze picked up from the NW and racing heated up. The 2nd RR finished with Stanford and UCSB tied. There was time left so a sail off was sailed and Stanford won. Congrats to Stanford for winning the 2017 PCCSC Match Race Championship and earning the PCCSC berth to Match race nationals.


Hurricane Irma has devastated the tropical communities of Florida and the island offshore, especially the Virgin Islands, home to many past, present and future college sailors. The presence of such sailors does not simply exist as a large portion of our tight-knit college sailing community, but represents the strength of the organization. With Hurricane Maria looming, our island friends need our thoughts and support.

While the Intercollegiate Sailing Association (ICSA) regular season has kicked off, the Stu Nelson Interconference regatta is the first major women’s Interconference of the Fall Season. Sailed on the Thames River, the banks of Connecticut College, the venue can be extremely challenging anytime the breeze clicks away from straight up and down. Being the first big regatta of the women’s season, many of the great women in college were elsewhere. However, results from this event helps set the scene for what we can expect on the women’s sailing front this season in college sailing.

Great day of racing despite the forecast. We completed 10 races in each division. We had a slight delay in the morning but race 1A eventually started at 10:46. A thunderstorm that went just the the east of us forced us to abandon race 10A and 10B and reset the whole course from the new southerly direction. Racing concluded at 1745. All courses were trapezoid and winds ranged from 0-12 from the NNE and then 6-8 from the SSE. We had a few protests at the end of the day resulting in a few DSQ's and only minor BDK's. Thank you to the coaches who helped hear them. The USMMA Midshipman did a great job setting courses all day!
