Connecticut College competed on the Charles River at the 82nd running of the Boston Dinghy Cup hosted by MIT.
In the three-division coed fleet, Connecticut College ended up 4th overall out of the competitive 19 team field.
Connecticut College finished 2nd in C Division, Connecticut College also finished a strong second place finish in B Division. And skippers Peter Miller, Maggie Shea, and Mike Marhshall, sailing with crews Sam Parish, Liz Wilsterman and Lucy Wallace, finished 12th in A Division.
The conditions were typical crazy Charles River-style with auto-tacks, random puffs, and sketchy mark-rounding’s. Kevin Lau-Hansen called the course “auto-tack city” after he heroically saved a near upwind death-roll. Atlantic Brugman had a great co-ed debut, and explained that the racing “was more aggressive and there was more tension on the water” than in the women’s fleets she usually sails in. Overall, the Connecticut College Coach said “it was a great team effort” that allowed the Camels to have one of their best co-ed showings all season.
