#5 Charleston women win Navy Fall; #8 HWS and #14 St. Mary’s show strength; The Pacific Coast and the Mid-Atlantic qualify for Singlehanded Nationals
#5 College of Charleston women won the Jen Harris Navy Fall Women's Regatta after 17 races sailed in each of the 3 divisions. The lone, three division women’s regatta featured a laser radial division (C-Division). A regatta hosted by the United States Naval Academy, in a choppy southerly, the Cougar Ladies showed their strength. The victory, despite a 4th place finish in A-Division and a 2nd place finish in the laser division, was largely attributed to the Cougar’s B-Division boat of Paris Henken, Annacel Carrington and Elizabeth Mignon. The all-junior-boat, after starting the event with a 10th place finish, strung nothing but top-10s throughout the remainder of the event, including 13 top-3 finishes. They won a competitive B-Division fleet decisively with 51 points in 17 races, 35 points ahead of the next closest boat.
