Sailing Gains Ground, Enters ICSA Final Day Five Points Back

Konstadt and Stokes have Harvard in second place in the B division after two days.

Day 1 Recap

MADISON, Wis.--The Harvard sailing team cut 13 points off Boston College's lead on Day 2 of the ICSA/Gill Coed Dinghy National Championship Wednesday on Lake Mendota and enters Friday's final day of competition in second place, just five points behind the Eagles.

The A-division pair of juniors Alan Palmer and Meghan Wareham opened the day with a win to cut into the BC lead and finished strong with a third-place showing in the fourth race of the day, moving into third in the division standings.

Weather and daylight allowed only three B-division races to be completed. John Stokes and Michelle Konstadt placed seventh in the first and 11th in the second. Stokes and Quincy Bock finished eighth in the third. Harvard remains in second place in the division.

The start of Thursday's racing has been moved up to 8:30 a.m. in an effort to fit in the entire competition. Harvard has 132 total points to BC's 127. Lurking close behind are Brown and St. Mary's with 142 points each and fifth-place Georgetown with 143.
