Brought to you by Dynamic Dollies, Sail1Design would like to welcome everyone to the spring team race season! This discipline in college sailing is growing more popular every year. Sailors love the short course, fast pace, expert boat handling required, and of course, team work. Before the first collegiate team race regattas of the season begin this weekend, Sail1Design brings you this exclusive in depth look at the best teams in the country. We reached out to five college coaches and asked them to rank the top ten teams in the ICSA, and then give us some comments on each team. Below are the pre-season tabulations.
