Lihan and Brim Named NEISA Women’s Sailors of the Week

NEW HAVEN, Conn.- Senior Sarah Lihan and junior Elizabeth Brim were named the New England Intercollegiate Sailing Association’s Women’s sailors of the week for their impressive performance at the Finger Lakes Intersectional this past weekend.

At the regatta, hosted by Cornell, Lihan and Brim won A division, finishing in the top five in all 12 races. They won four races, including three of the last four of the regatta, showing their consistency throughout.

This was quite an incredible feat as Lihan and Brim have never sailed together in a regatta before. They also have not spent much time together at practice because Lihan sailed singlehanded Laser Radials for the first three weeks of the season. It will be exciting to see this team progress even more throughout the season as they get more and more comfortable as a team.
