After a weekend of coed regattas, the Yale Women's Sailing team travels to Providence to compete in the Dellenbaugh Women's Trophy at Brown. Having won the first two women's regattas of the season, the Bulldogs are surely the team to beat this weekend.

The wind forecast on both Saturday and Sunday is for a steady breeze of 8 - 12 knots with formidable gusts of 21-23. Despite predicted sunny weather in the low 60s, the sailors will still need to contend with frigid water in Providence.
The Yale Women's Sailing Team has twice been recognized by the New England Intercollegiate Sailing Association this season. After dominating B-division at the Navy Women’s Spring Interconference senior Kira Woods and junior Chrissie Klingler were named NEISA Women’s Sailors of the Week. The following week junior Louisa Nordstrom and sophomores Cate Mollerus and Katie Clulo were awarded the same honor after winning A-division at the St Mary’s Spring Women’s Interconference.
Racing begins on Saturday and can be followed live at https://collegesailing.org/
