As light and variable conditions were afflicting dinghy sailing on the east coast, sailors strong and determined enough to be proficient in the Laser Radial and Laser Full Rig classes had their sights set on a berth at two of College Sailing’s 6 National Championships. The two events, Men’s and Women’s Singlehanded Championships, hosted by Hope College and Grand Valley State University, will sail either in Macatawa Bay, a small bay in Holland Michigan or on the eastern shore of Lake Michigan, November second through the fourth. Needless to say, the conditions expected on Lake Michigan in November likely will add to the already hardcore nature of the Laser- a singlehanded boat stripped down so that the college athlete has no one to turn to as they face the elements.
Cambridge, MA (September 13, 2018) – The Inter-Collegiate Sailing Association (ICSA) has named its 2017-18 All-Academic Sailing Team. The All-Academic Sailing Team recognizes collegiate sailors who have achieved excellence in national and inter-conference competition as well as excelling at the highest academic level for the 2017-18 academic year.
The College Sailing season is upon us and with it came the end of summer as hot, sticky air was replaced by cool conditions reminding sailors of moments preparing in the boat park, listening to halyards rattle as anxieties heighten. Hopefully you are as excited as I am.
This newest edition of the College Sailing season comes with a new adjusted schedule that begins with three weeks largely consisting of intraconference regattas that, perhaps, will make new feel like old.
