The coed team won the New England Dinghy Championship for the second time in the last three years (2013, 2015), hosted by Salve Regina University in Newport, RI, May 2-3, 2015. It was a hard fought battle for the Bears, who stayed close to first overall throughout the entire 30 race event (15 races in each division). In the later races on Sunday the breeze came up and Brown dominated, winning the event in the last race over Coast Guard and Yale. Congrats to the entire coed team on a terrific team effort!
