Bears Finish 3rd at Sperry Women's Nationals, 3 Sailors Earn All-American Team Honors

It was a terrific and memorable 11 days for the Brown Bears at the 2015 College Sailing Spring National Championships in Newport, RI. Brown hosted 5 regattas and competed in 4 of them during that time, finishing 3rd at both the Sperry Women's Nationals and Gill Coed Semi-finals, 6th at the Sperry Women's Semi-finals, and 13th at the Gill Coed Nationals. Brown finished 9th overall in College Sailing for the Fowle Trophy which is the overall National Championship ranking (there are six National Championships throughout the year).
