CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – The New England Intercollegiate Sailing Association has selected Alan Palmer, Ryan Byrne and Quincy Bock as its Coed Sailors of the Week.

Harvard won the Captain Hurst Bowl over the weekend thanks in large part to the trio’s 13-point victory in the A division. Sailing against 19 other teams, Palmer, Byrne and Bock tallied top-three finishes in seven of the 14 races. Their division score of 80, paired with the B division score of 88, gave the Crimson a 17-point overall victory.

The Captain Hurst Bowl win marks the third Harvard victory this fall in which Palmer and Bock have sailed together. Last weekend’s win marks the second Byrne has been a part for the Crimson after capturing the Harvard Invitational Sept. 12.
