NEISA Release

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – For their performance at last week's Women's Showcase, Harvard sophomore Emma Kaneti and junior Emma Jakobson have been named the NEISA Women Sailors of the Week.

The duo earned the honor after a stellar performance at last weekend's Women's Showcase regatta hosted by Connecticut College on the Thames River in New London, Conn. Kaneti & Jakobson were victorious in the regatta's top tier with a score of 67 points, defeating second-place Stanford. The pair sailed in the competitive A-Division in a wide range of difficult conditions, leading the Harvard women to a second-place overall finish, the group's best performance of the fall slate to date.

 The honor marks Kaneti's first since being named an ICSA All-America honorable mention in the Spring 2019 season. The selection is Jakobson's first of her Harvard career.

Kaneti, Jakobson and the Harvard sailing team return to action this weekend at four regattas.
