CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Junior sailors Alexandra Jumper and Emily Lambert have been named the New England Intercollegiate Sailing Association Women’s Sailors of the Week for the week of Sept. 21.

Jumper and Lambert guided their boat to five first-place finishes in eight races in the A division at the Mrs. Hurst Bowl, hosted by Dartmouth. The duo capped off the regatta in dramatic fashion with two of those top finishes coming on the last races of the weekend to ensure a victory in the A division by 18 points and a fifth-place overall finish for the Crimson. Dominant starts and good boat control were the keys to their success.

The Harvard women’s sailing team will be in action this weekend as they compete in the Women’s Regis Bowl, hosted by Boston University.
