MAISA Women’s Conference Championships (4/29-30)
The Princeton Sailing Women’s Team competed in the MAISA Women’s Fleet Racing Championships against 13 other schools at St Mary’s College of Maryland. This regatta showcased the best Women’s teams in the conference and was rated a grade 1 college sailing event. Saturday’s conditions brought a SE breeze of 6-8 knots that would eventually die off and shift to the east. The Race Committee set a fair course and finished 8 races for A and B fleets before the thunderstorms rolled through. The highlight of day 1 came from the A fleet boat in race 1 sailed by Bracklinn Williams ‘25 and Katie Greppin ‘26. Bracklinn and Katie led boats to the right side after a late boat start positioning themselves well for a starboard tack lift on the race’s first leg, getting their boat around mark 1 in 6th position! They would lose a few boats on the downwind finishing the first race of the regatta with a 9th place. Sunday brought a 5-6 knot WNW breeze that would give the Race Committee just enough time to finish 14 races and finish out the regatta with a full rotation. The Highlights on day two were made by Evelyn Walsh ‘26 and Cora Lecates ‘26 with an aggressive start routine had them beating top teams from Cornell, Georgetown, and Penn off the line! Shout out to Commodore Hali Liu ‘25 for the incredible support in the early sets and closing out the regatta from races 10a – 14a.
