ANNAPOLIS, Md. – The women's sailing team finished second at the Navy Women's Spring Interconference Regatta hosted by the US Naval Academy. One of the premier events on the women's spring circuit, the event drew talent from across the nation. After a long weekend with sixteen races per division, the Bears once again demonstrated their viability on the national stage.
Saturday's racing began in a beautiful ten knot northwesterly that provided for excellent conditions on the Severn River. As the day progressed, however, the wind switched to a more shifty westerly direction that caused for a high level of unpredictability on the racecourse. The Bears were able to manage the difficult conditions to keep their scoreline relatively consistent and found themselves in second after the first ten races in each division.
On Sunday, only two races per division were able to be completed before the wind completely shut off. Luckily, it filled from the opposite direction and the race committee was able to run an additional four races per division. Coast Guard continued to sail well across varying conditions and maintained their overall position.
Dana Rohde and Maddie Ekin won A-Division with 77 points. Rohde and Ekin finished outside of the top-10 only once in the sixteen race series, including eight top-3 finishes. Madelynn Widmeier and Anna Maria Vaccaro finished seventh in B-Division with 136 points.
