It was another busy weekend on the water for the sailing team. On Saturday, at Harvard University, the crews of Adam London '95 and John Feland '94, and Charlie Pan '95 and Eugene '95, battled heavy winds and placed fifth out of twelve teams in the Northern Series.

Meanwhile, Doug DeCouto '97 and Patricia Schmidt '96 sailed together along with Danielle Ames '96 and Elaine Heal '95, at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy in New London, Conn. MIT was among twenty of the best teams in the country represented at this two-day event.

On Sunday, Al Slivan '95 and Heather Campbell '95 won their division in Tech dinghies here at MIT. Together with Dan Nestor '96, who sailed in the Laser division, these three placed third overall.

Finally, the newcomers to college sailing had a regatta on Sunday at Harvard. Chris Strattont '97, Robert LaChance '97, Jeff Brook '97 and Alan Ai '97 sailed in this event, continuing to make strides toward glory.
