Fordham's Women's team, consisting of Grace Howie '20 & Elizabeth Hupp '21 in A Division and Charlotte Leclue '19
& Gabrielle Mascio '18 in B Division, justified its Top 20 ranking in the latest Coaches Poll conducted by SAILING WORLD
Magazine by finishing 16th in an extremely competitive 18-team fleet at the Women's Atlantic Coast Championship sailed
in FJs and hosted by Connecticut College this weekend.

Among the three East Coast conferences, New England (NEISA) dominated by capturing the top four places and eight of the top 11.

Fordham was one of only three club teams to qualify for this prestigious competition.

Official Summary

Saturday, November 11:

"Hello Sailors! The Connecticut College Sailing Team welcomed the top 18 Women's Teams from the Atlantic Coast Conferences. The Breeze was North at 8-12 with Shifts from the NE and NW. The Breeze eventually lightened. 6 Races in A div and 5 Races in B div were sailed. 5 Yellow flags were given and no protests were heard."

Sunday, November 12:

"The Sailors arrived to a surprisingly strong North Breeze at 5-7 knts. B div went out and sailed race 6B. A div went out and Sailed 7A and the RC had to abandon race 8A when the North Breeze shut off. The teams returned to the dock and waited. It was a Christmas miracle when SSW breeze came down the river. We were able to get 1 more A div race and 2 B div races, before we ran out of time. 1 Protest was heard resulting in a DSQ. A Special thank you to all of the competitors and Coaches for helping us put our Fjs and Motorboats away for the Winter. Always nice hosting a late Fall event and get help closing up for the season."
