The Graham Hall is a massive team race regatta, in terms of people sailing and relevance, and is the closest model to what we will see at the National Championship, May 27. The 16-team regatta requires 120 races to complete just the first round. This edition of the event featured a full round robin, followed by a top-6 and a 3 team sail-off to find the winner. While, after 22 races sailed and a 17-5 overall record, the defending champion, #1 Yale came away with the win, the margin could not have been closer. Showing grit, the Bulldogs went 2-0 in a 3-way tie breaker between #3 Georgetown and #5 Boston College to discern the eventual winner.
