On weekend #2 of the fall season, out Rams traveled to New England to compete in two major interconference regattas featuring most of the top 20 ranked teams in the country. Our Coed team sailed in Fireflies and FJs at the Hatch Brown Regatta hosted by MIT on the Charles River in Boston, while our Lady Rams raced in FJs at the Stu Nelson Regatta  hosted by Connecticut College on the Connecticut River in New London.

The Hatch Brown was a three-division competition and Fordham was represented by senior skippers Will Holz, Alec Tayler and Anders Ekholm and their respective crews Makena Masterson ’19, Katherine Jones ’18 and Gabrielle Mascio ’18. 51 races were sailed and our Rams, who finished 15th overall, placed 14th, 13th and 11th in A, B and C divisions.

From the official summary…     

Saturday, September 17:
Beautiful conditions on the “rivah chuck” with a fun regatta to honor MIT's third Sailing Master. Hatch was an all-star sailor at BU winning A Division at College Nationals and going on to win titles in the Etchells, Fireflies, and Thistle Classes. His life was devoted to college sailing for 29 years and Hatch was a legend in organizing ICSA and NEISA, as well as teaching thousands of MIT students how to sail during his professional career.

Yale, Dartmouth, and Boston College are leading the three division event being sailed in colorful Fireflies and Turbo FJs. Inner and outer trapezoids were sailed and the racing was remarkably tight all the way around the race track.

Sunday, September 18:
Sunday started out with a light Westerly with plenty of cloud cover. The breeze built and was steadier than Saturday giving the venue some good racing. Congratulations to Yale for winning the Hatch Brown.

Fordham finished 13th overall with our gals finishing 11th and 15th in their respective divisions.

From the official summary…

Whoops! I missed one this past weekend. Mea culpa!

At the Sacred Heart Trophy, Fordham was represented by Thomas Cooper '18 and Emma Archard '18 in A division and Thomas Capozzi '19 and Brigid Murphy '20 in B division. The regatta started slowly as only two races in A division were sailed on Saturday before the breeze died.  On Sunday, the wind picked up and an additional ten races were sailed.  Both Fordham divisions scored bullets on Sunday and our Rams finished the regatta in 3rd place overall.  Congratulations to Brigid on her first collegiate sailing regatta!

Order of Finish (* = varsity team):

1. Coast Guard - 54 *
2. Tufts - 81 *
3. FORDHAM - 89
4. McGill University - 102
5. New Hampshire - 107
6. SUNY Stonybrook - 109
7. Wesleyan - 124
8. Worcester Polytechnic Institute - 155
9. Sacred Heart - 181
10. SUNY Maritime - 183 *
11. University of Connecticut - 198
12. Fairfield - 216
13. SUNY Stonybrook - 222

This coming weekend, Fordham will participate in four regattas:
North Fall #1 at Hobart/William Smith is a qualifier for the MAISA Conference Championship, the WAR Memorial Regatta, near the end of the season,
plus three very competitive Interconference regattas:
the St. Mary's Fall Interconference at St. Mary's College in Maryland
the Hood Trophy at Tufts in Medford, MA, and
the Susan Rogers '75 Memorial Regatta at Cornell in Ithaca, NY
