Five Harvard Sailors Earn All-America Recognition
CASCADE LOCKS, Ore.—Five members of the Harvard sailing team were recognized with All-America recognition from the Inter-Collegiate Sailing Association following the conclusion of the national championship regatta.
Senior Alan Palmer was named to the All-America coed skipper squad, while classmates Quincy Bock and Meghan Wareham were named All-America crews. Senior John Stokes and junior Emily Lambert earned All-America honorable mention as skippers.
All five athletes competed at the ICSA National Championships on Columbia River Gorge. Each of the four coed athletes helped the Crimson place third nationally. Palmer and Bock contributed to Harvard’s sixth-place A-division finish at the ISCA/Gill Coed Dinghy National Championship, while Stokes and Wareham were key players in Harvard’s runner-up showing in the B division.
Each coed sailor also helped the Crimson place second in the ICSA Eastern Dinghy Championship Semifinal and fourth in the New England Dinghy Championship. They competed in five of Harvard's top-three finishes, including victories at the Sharpe Trophy; Owen, Mosbacher & Knapp Trophies and the Southern New England Team Race Intersectional.
Lambert was the A-division skippered for the Harvard women’s squad, which placed seventh at the Sperry Top-Sider/ICSA Women’s National Championship. She skippered the Crimson to second place in the A division and fifth overall at the New England Women’s Championship. She was also part of the duo that won the A division at the St. Mary’s Women’s Intersectional.
All five athletes were also All-New England selections this spring. Palmer earned All-America honorable mention last season.
