Fordham Sailing launched its Fall 2016 season this past weekend by participating in the Jack Boehringer ’12 Memorial Regatta hosted by Cornell on Cuyuga Lake in Ithaca, NY. Our Rams were represented by Roberto Stevens ’19 and Cortney Rielly ’20, who captured second place in A Division, and Matt Cappetta ’19 and Annika Ekholm ’20, who placed a respectable seventh in B Division.
Overall, Fordham placed fifth in the 18-team fleet.

We welcome frosh Cortney & Annika to Fordham and their first collegiate Sailing competition!

From the official report…

Saturday, September 10:
Racing began promptly at 9:45am with a light southerly around 8mph. Breeze was shifty all day with long persistent edge shifts from both sides. Breeze continued to build as the day went on with some gusts over 20mph. It was a beautiful day on the lake, sunny and warm. 8A and 8B races were completed. one redress was filed and disallowed, 1 protest was heard and disallowed.
Sunday, September 11:
Sunday got underway at 9:45am as scheduled. Breeze was out of the WNW ranging from 8-12mph. During race 9B the breeze picked up significantly gusting to about 25kts. With one breakdown and a couple of capsized boats, we decided to take a postponement onshore to re-group. Sailors went back out at 12:30 for race 10B in a NW breeze 15-20mph. In total 4 races were held in each division for a total of 12A and 12B races. It was a tight battle all day between GW, Hobart, and Cornell. Hobart and Cornell had protests filed against each other in races 11A and 12A, resulting in DSQ's for both teams."
