|Jackson McCoy skippered Tufts to second place in B division|
CAMBRIDGE – In a regatta limited to just three races in each division due to a lack of wind, the Tufts University co-ed sailing team scored third out of 17 teams at MIT's Hatch Brown Trophy on Sunday.
Saturday's racing never happened due to no wind. The Charles River was complete glass all Sunday morning, but enough wind filled at 1:15 pm to squeeze in three light air races in each division.
Tufts compiled finishes totaling to 20 in A's, 10 in B's and 25 in C's for a 55 final total. They were nine behind second-place Roger Williams (46) and three in front of fourth-place Yale (58). Dartmouth won the regatta handily with a 7-7-5-19 scoring line.
The Jumbo B dinghy led the way as senior skipper Jackson McCoy and junior crew Emma Clutterbuck were second in the division. They won their first race.
Tufts' A team was sixth in the division with senior skipper Cam Holley and senior crew Ian Morgan. They had a best finish of fourth in the first race.
Tufts was 10th in C division, losing a head-to-head tie-breaker against Vermont. Senior Jack Bitney skippered with senior Taylor Hart as crew. They were the runner-up in their third race.
