The Ivy League released its list of student-athletes selected for 2018-19 Academic All-Ivy honors in its spring sports, and 10 Bulldogs were selected. The 10 thrived in their sport and in the classroom, as starters or key reserves on an officially recognized varsity team with 3.0 or better cumulative grade point averages. Each Ivy institution nominated five men and five women from its eligible student-athletes.
To mark an incredibly successful season, several Yale sailors were recognized with nation-wide awards after the conclusion of the national championship on Friday. The team collectively received five all-American awards, two all-American honorable mentions, and the college sailor of the year award.
After sweeping podium positions at all three spring national championships, the Bulldogs took home the Fowle trophy for the top overall team in the country for the 2018/2019 season. Their commanding third, first, and second finishes at the women’s, team racing, and fleet racing nationals, respectively, were enough to top all other teams in overall performance when including a fourth and eleventh place finishes at the men’s and women’s singlehanded nationals in the fall by Nic Baird and Louisa Nordstrom, respectively.

They also won several individual and team awards, demonstrating their conference dominance by commanding the NEISA award ceremony.

The Yale Sailing Team competed in two regattas this past weekend. Young groups raced against top teams at the Rudkin Team Race in Florida and at the Ice Breaker Fleet Race at Tufts, where they truly broke ice off the boats before sailing. While the team had tough events in both locations, they are still shaking the rust off and will be looking forward to spring break training next week.
The Yale Sailing Team will be represented at both the Rudkin Team Race Promotional and the annual Ice Breaker Fleet Race this weekend. The former will be held at Eckerd College in Tampa, Fla., while the latter will be sailed in much colder conditions at Tufts University in Middlesex County, Mass. Many of the top-ranked Bulldogs will also be in St. Petersburg to practice their team racing expertise with distinguished Yale sailing alumni.
The Yale sailing team entered the most events ever in its first full spring weekend of competition on March 1-3.
