Coed Finish 12th at Coed Dinghy Nationals!
URI Placed 12th at this years Coed National Championship also held in Cascade Locks, OR May 30th-June 1st. Conditions for the Coed's were a little windier then for the Women as all the heavies got a chance to sail. Considering the competition 12th was a great result for the Rams. With the new Semi Final format, National's are truly representative of the top 18 teams in the country. Contributing to the effort in A-Division was Matt Carmody '11 with Maggie Craig '13 and Andrew Moakes '13 as crews. In B-Division was Amy Hawkins '12 and Jamie Simmons '12 as skippers and Caroline Hall '12 and Jeremy Henry '11 as crews.
Although the Rams suffer some loses of top skippers and crews this year, they return many sailors at National's including the whole National Champion Woman's Team. Thanks for following the Ram's this season and see you in the fall!
URI Women Win 2011 National Championships!!!
The URI Women won the Sperry Top-Sider/Gill Women's Naitonal Championship held in Cascade Locks, OR May 23rd-26th. The Rams won by convincing 10 points despit eating a DSQ in race 3B from a starting line foul. Conditions on "The Gorge" were tricky all week with unseasonably cold weather causing very light winds on the normally very windy Hood River Gorge. 3-4 knot upwind current caused fleet inversions on many downwinds but the Rams handled it better then the rest. B-Division Sailors Chanel Miller '14 and Danielle Fougere '12 turned in two first place finishes to close the regatta and seal victory for the Rams. They were also aided by Katie Coupland '11 in the Semi Finals. Amy Hawkins '12 and Caroline Hall '12 finished 2nd in A-Division, only one point out of first. Amy Hawkins was also named Honorable Mention All-American for her excellent sailing throughout the Fall 2010-Spring 2011 seasons.
This is URI's first ever Women's National Championship and first Dinghy National's win since 1976.
Women Qualify for Semi Finals!
The women's team qualified for semi finals by placing 6th in New Englands held at Bowdoin College in Harpswell, ME. Amy Hawkins '12 and Caroline Hall '12 placed 4th in A division while Chanel Miller '14 sailing with crews Danielle Fougere '12 and Katie Coupland '11 placed 9th in B division. Saturday was a brutal day on the water with temperatures only climbing into the mid 40's with rain, wind to 20 knots, and occasional hail. Sunday was much more pleasent and sunny but very little wind allowing only A divison to complete races which eventually had to be thrown out to keep number of races in A and B divisons equal.
