Win for Charleston

Following ICSA North American Sloop Championship in Newport, RI

The College of Charleston beat nine other schools to win the 2002-2003 ICSA North American Sloop Championship for the Cornelius Shields Sr. Trophy. The three-day event, hosted by the New York Yacht Club (NYYC) and Brown University, was held November 1-3 at the NYYC’s Harbour Court.

Charleston sailed consistently enough to win with a second in the last race to Hobart’s eighth. That was sufficient to break a tie with Hobart. Third was the University of Minnesota; fourth, US Naval Academy; fifth, Southern California; sixth, Brown University; seventh, Wisconsin; eighth, University of Rhode Island; ninth, University of Texas and tenth, Western Washington.

Sailing for Charleston were David Blouin, John Bawden, Boggie Dabney, and Thomas Loxtrel.

Friday and Saturday were windy and cold -- ripped spinnakers on the Sonars being the major casualty. Sunday was very cold; however, the breeze from the north died during the day, and playing the current proved a key.
