East '06 finishes ninth in sailing's Nationals

(11/22/05 11:00am)

The weather was consistently pleasant for sailing team captain Emily East '06 this weekend, holding at 85 degrees in the Keehi Lagoon in Honolulu, Hawaii for the 2005 Women's Single Handed Nationals. East took full advantage of the favorable conditions, a sharp contrast to the clime during the majority of the fall season, finishing ninth in the nation.

Sailing weathers storms at Navy and Ivy regattas

(10/11/05 9:00am)

Despite their inexplicable love of neoprene, Dartmouth sailors certainly prefer a windy and sunny day to a windy and wet one. Unfortunately, the Big Green sailors encountered cold and soggy conditions Saturday and Sunday at the Navy Fall Women's Intersectional Regatta and the Mosbacher-Knapp Ivy League championship. But while many might not consider New Hampshire a strategic sailing stronghold, inclement weather is nothing new for the men and women in green, who earned consistently high places in both regattas.

Calm weekend weather winds weaken Big Green sailors

(04/20/05 9:00am)

Light winds and scheduling conflicts plagued the Dartmouth sailing team this weekend. Although everyone agreed that the warm weather was wonderful, it brought with it a high pressure zone and little wind over the weekend. Despite not having many exciting races this weekend, the sailors are happy that Lake Mascoma has thawed from the relative heat wave. With the last few weekends' sweeping victories, the team has jumped in rank, with the coed team moving from 10th to second on the national level. The women's team also bumped up, moving from an overall ranking of sixth to fifth.

Sailors rebound from winter break to impress Charleston crowd

(02/23/05 11:00am)

While the temperatures in Hanover dropped back below zero over the weekend, a few members of the sailing team were able to escape to sun and sailing in their first regatta of the spring season. The Big Green sent a team of Andrew Loe '06, Adele Wilhelm '08, Ben Sampson '08, Betsy Bryant '08 and new assistant coach (and recent Olympian) Kate McDowell down to the College of Charleston for the Charleston Spring Intersection. For those who do not follow collegiate sailing, Charleston marks the season's first big intersectional regatta.

Dartmouth sailors ring in New Year at Sugar Bowl

(01/13/05 11:00am)

While many of us spent our winter holiday with old and new friends, a few of Dartmouth's sailors felt the need to both win a regatta and enjoy a party, a tried and true Big Green tradition. So they headed off to Tulane University and the Sugar Bowl at the Southern Yacht Club on Dec. 30 and 31 searching for the thrill of competition and, with Bourbon Street so close by, a little fun.

First-year sailors step into the spotlight with second place at Yale regatta

(11/04/04 11:00am)

On Friday night, while most of the '08 class was running their requisite laps around the oh-so-touchable bonfire, four of their classmates were asleep down at Yale University, resting up for the New England Freshman Championships. A finish in the top eight at Yale would earn the team a spot at the freshman Atlantic Coast Championships next weekend at Navy. And, since the Dartmouth sailors have already qualified for coed ACC's and women's ACC's, a bid at the freshman ACC's would nicely complement the team's domination of the eastern United States.

Women's sailors qualify for Atlantic Coast champs

(10/27/04 9:00am)

While most Dartmouth students spent this sunny Saturday in long pants and fleece, the Big Green sailing team raced toward glory in neoprene and dry suits, securing berths in top regattas throughout the East Coast . Despite the extreme drop in mobility and sex appeal, the sailors once again showed their mettle in heavy winds up and down the Northeast.
