The Bulldogs sail the season's second national qualifier this weekend at Marblehead, Mass. Yale sailors also compete at Dartmouth and Sacred Heart University this weekend.
Sailing for Yale:
Match Race New England Championship (Marblehead)
Captain Hurst Bowl (Dartmouth)
Sacred Heart Invite
(B) Jacob Asher / Katie Wells
Match racing is a different style of racing. Instead of having 18 boats racing for low scoring positions, there are only two boats, one against the other. Scores are shown in number of wins, and the format of racing is often elimination style.
Wind conditions are again, light – though shifting throughout the weekend, which could mix up results as different strategies will work in different wind directions.
Follow scores at www.collegesailing.org and Yale sailing's Instagram page for live video @yale_sailing.
