HWS takes 7th at ICSA Dinghy Championships

DETROIT, Mich.—The Hobart and William Smith Colleges sailing team finished seventh in the Intercollegiate Sailing Association (ICSA) North American Dinghy Championship on June 10. HWS improved three places on the final day of racing, after sitting in 10th place following the first two days of the regatta.

Eighteen teams competed in two divisions sailing 18 races in each division over three days at the Bayview Yacht Club. The Colleges finished fourth in the B division with 114 points and ninth in the A Division with 165 points. Harvard University won the regatta with 165 points followed by the University of Hawaii and St. Mary’s College of Maryland.

Junior Ed Norton (Tabor Academy/Fair Haven, N.J.) skippered the HWS dinghy in the B Division throughout the event. First-year Augusta Nadler (Tabor Academy/Marion, Mass.) was his crew for 12 races, while senior John Cline (St. Georges School/Stuart, Fla.) was the crew in the other six races. The trio posted 13 top-10 finishes, including a pair of victories and four second place showings.
