The forecast for Saturday is a 10-knot wind gusting to 18 that slowly dies to 7-10 over the course of the day as the temperature climbs to the high 50s. Sunday morning is predicted to have an extremely light northerly breeze that dies and rotates 180 degrees to fill in as a southerly blowing 7 - 9 knots by the last warning signal time at 3 pm.

 

Junior skipper Chrissie Klingler and senior crew Kira Woods were recognized by the New England Inter-Conference Sailing Association (NESIA) as the Women's Sailors of the Week for their dominant performance at the Dellenbaugh Trophy last weekend. The current Yale Women's Team captain and former Yale Women's Team captain, respectively, have consistently proved their prowess and were identified as "arguably one of the best women’s boats in the nation," by NEISA.

 

Racing begins on Saturday and can be followed live at https://collegesailing.org/   .
