Nationals berths now secured and allocated, our Coach Panel submitted their final overall college sailing team race rankings for COED & Women’s, with an eye on the qualified teams along with an open mind on overall performance, regardless of conference and berth allocation limitations. Scroll down to see the Nationals berth selections.
Coed TR Nationals will be held at Tulane 16-18 May, and the Women’s championship will be at Brown (this weekend!!). We hope you enjoyed these, and we will be back on the trail next season. Thanks to Dynamic Dollies for supporting the coed rankings!! We also hope to improve the look/feel of the women’s rankings to match coed. As most know, women’s team racing is new this year. We are looking for a sponsor to help build a similar system for women’s rankings; if you want to be a part of that, please let us know.
Thanks to our panel of coaches; Ken Legler (Tufts), John Mollicone (Brown), Thomas Barrows (Yale), Esteban Forrer (Jacksonville), Michael McBrien (King’s Point), Chris Klevan (Stanford), and new panel member Isaac Clark (Penn).

|2||Stanford||2.1||Bit of a mystery due to geography but they have the talent to win|
|3||Yale||2.6||Fastest freshmen in the nation|
|4||Dartmouth||4.3||Just enough depth for three excellent boats|
|5||Brown||4.7||4th at home in New Englands in toughest conference but expected to do better at home nationals|

|9||Cornell||8.1||Tied G’town at MAISA champs without arguably their best skipper away at ILCA 6 regattas.|
