Sailing earns fourth at Match Race Nationals

The Polar Bears sailing team competed in the Match Race National Championship for the Cornellius Shields Trophy, hosted by the College of Charleston recently.

In the initial round robin, all ten teams began in a windy, north westerly breeze. It took the Polar Bears a few races to adjust to the current and boats, but the team was able to get wins against the University of Michigan, the University of Washington, Georgetown, and Boston College. In the match against BC, the Polar Bears found themselves behind early, but BC ended up sailing to the wrong mark, giving Bowdoin a key win in the round.

Bowdoin entered the quarterfinals as the fifth seed. The Polar Bears faced the Naval Academy in a first to three wins series. Bowdoin lost the first race in a tight battle, but battled back and won the next three races, controlling Navy off the starting line and holding on for the win. The final race against Navy included lots of great match racing action, with several major luffs before the finish where Bowdoin ultimately won the series.

They battled the College of Charleston next in a semifinals match. Bowdoin battled hard, but lost all three races to the Cougars, including the final race where each team traded penalties before Charleston was able to finish just before Bowdoin.

The Polar Bears faced USF in the Petite Finals. USF ultimately prevailed over the Polar Bears.

The fourth place finish at the Match Race Nationals is the best ever finish for Bowdoin at a National Championship. Senior Harrison Hawk was the skipper and sailed with sophomores Matt Safford, Marie Bergsund, and freshman Alden Grimes.
