Bears Finish 5th at Coed Nationals, 2nd at Coed Semifinals, 4th in the Fowle Trophy, and 4 More Sailors Earn All-American Honors

What an incredible two weeks in Newport for the Bears! After winning the Women's National Championship from May 23-24, the Bears carried their momentum into the College Sailing/Gill Coed Semifinals on May 28-29 with a second place finish overall, only two points out of first behind Stanford University and qualifying for the National Championship. Brown started strong and was winning after 12 races in both A and B divisions at the College Sailing/Gill Coed National Championship from May 30-31. A tough last few races dropped the Bears to 5th overall out of the top 18 teams in college sailing, just 4 points out of fourth place overall. Patrick Shanahan '19 and Julia Reynolds '21 finished 5th in an extremely stacked A-division and the College Sailing/Quantum Women's Sailor of the Year Ragna Agerup '20 and crew Maddy McGrath '22 finished 4th in B-division. The Bears ended the season as the 4th best team overall in the Fowle Trophy rankings after finishing top five in four National Championships in 2018-2019 (1st at Women's Nationals, 5th at Coed Nationals, 4th at Women's Singlehanded Nationals (Hannah Steadman '20), and 5th at the Men's Singlehanded Nationals (Patrick Shanahan).

At the conclusion of Nationals, four more Brown sailors were named to the College Sailing All-American Team: Patrick Shanahan was named an All-American Coed Skipper, Ragna Agerup was named an All-American Honorable-Mention Coed Skipper (the only female to make the Coed All-American Team), Julia Reynolds was named an All-American Crew, and Maxine de Havenon '19 was named an All-American Honorable-Mention Crew. This gives the Brown Bears seven All-American selections in 2019!
A huge thanks to our entire team for helping with the Nationals and for getting everyone ready to compete at an incredibly high level. We also have to thank all of our great parents for their support throughout the Nationals and the season and to the Potts Family P'16 for housing many of our sailors for two weeks in Newport.
Go Bears!
