Last weekend #1 Roger Williams University won the Graham Hall Team Race, hosted by the United State Naval Academy. Once deemed the spring season opener, due to its placement on the college sailing schedule, the Graham Hall remains as the first big-time team race of the season. Today, it serves as a double point-earning regatta for the newly formed Mid Atlantic Team Race League as well as the first opportunity for the best of MAISA, the South Atlantic and New England to get together on the same body of water. Moreover, the Naval Academy runs some of the best regattas on the circuit.

#4 College of Charleston won the Navy Spring Women’s regatta. Sailed at the venue of some of the premier regattas on the College Sailing circuit, this was the first inter conference hosted by the United States Naval Academy. Conditions were uncharacteristic of the Severn River and the top women in the nation had to be on their toes throughout the weekend.

The Intercollegiate Sailing Season does not have a “season opener,” and though, technically, this is the 4th week in which scores have been posted to Techscore, the ICSA’s scoreboard, the majority of the teams will ease their way into the spring season trying different combinations and experimenting with their team race lineup while maintaining continuity on the fleet race front, especially in the women’s game.

Meeting Minutes


#6 Dartmouth wins Coed Atlantic Coast Championship, #1 Yale wins Women’s Atlantic Coast Championship, #10 Stanford wins Coed Pacific Coast Championship and #13 Boston College wins Match Race Nationals.


#2 College of Charleston’s senior and ICSA College Sailor of the Year frontrunner, Stefano Peschiera won the Laser Performance Men's Singlehanded Nationals in impressive fashion. A regatta, stacked with talent, showcased three previous champions, including Peschiera himself, who won the event as a freshman in 2014. Posting a scoreline with one race outside the top-7 positions, Peschiera walked away from the competition regardless of its strength. Mr. Peschiera finished with 50 points after 12 races, including 5 races inside the top-3. With only the Atlantic Coast Championship left to sail, Peschiera has put together a compelling campaign, winning his conference championship, A-Division at the Danmark Trophy and now the Singlehanded Nationals.

The Fall Nationals Championships are just around the corner, and competition is heating up around the country. #4 Hobart and William Smith won the War Memorial regatta (MAISA), #1 Yale won the Victoria Coffee Urn Trophy (NEISA), #10 MIT won the Professor Schell Trophy (NEISA) and #3 Charleston won the SAISA Fall Coed regatta.


#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.
