A state police boat escorted members of Next House back to the Sailing Pavilion during the MIT Sailing Challenge on Friday, May 16. The goal of the challenge was to transport as many people across the Charles in a Tech dinghy as possible, with cheating heavily encouraged. The 36 people the Next Sail team managed to fit on a highly modified tech dinghy (breaking their previous record by between 0.5 and 1 people) was enough to attract the attention of the Massachusetts State Police, who offloaded some crew members and escorted the vessel back to the dock without incident. No warnings or citations were issued.
