BOSTON, Mass. - The Bulldogs travel to Boston this weekend to compete in the Reed Trophy at MIT. The Reed serves as the New England women's conference championship and the top teams from that regatta will qualify for berths at the women's nationals in May.
This weekend's regatta is crucial for the no. 2 Bulldogs, who placed second in the event last year. The forecast for Saturday is extremely heavy wind from the south, with a steady breeze of 15 and gusts in the mid-30s. Sunday is forecasted for much more manageable conditions, with a breeze the builds from 5 to 9 knots over the course of the days with gusts of 12.
This past weekend the Yale women's team chose not to attend the Women's Team Race National Invitational at Brown, instead opting to hone in on its fleet racing skills at the Owen, Mosbacher, and Knapp Trophies at Yale. The Bulldogs came in second overall to Fordham at the event, which is informally recognized as the Ivy championship, thus winning Ivy's on behalf of both the coed and women's teams. Nordstrom and Loiacono placed first in A division while Klinger and Woods came fourth in B division.
