MIT Charles River Team Race Open

Eighteen teams competed in 192 races held over two days in mostly easterly 5-13 knots. The format was a modified swiss league using 30 FJs with each team sailing at least 20 races. The champions were determined by a semi-final and final best of three rounds.

This event could not have happened without the huge amount of volunteers required to run so many races over two days. Last year’s champions Matt Duggan and Alie Bittl were assisted by Chris Lash started races until the semi final round. The rotations and scoring masters were long time CRO veterans Eric Gibber, Sue Ostrowski, and Ellen Pratt, assisted by Jennifer Stewart, Jeong-Ah Kwon, Simon Watts, Mai, and John Laiosa. Breakdown and rotations were managed by MIT staffers Wally Corwin, Carl Zimba, and Patrick Joyce. Sailing Master Fran Charles, Matty Cohen, and Matt Lindblad were also helping to manage the action.

In the semi finals, Boom defeated Who Dat by a 2-1 margin in the best of three series, while Ruckus (minus Pete Levesque from Saturday) beat Go Below Me in a sail-off following three protests from the first two races. The finals were won by Boom (2-0) vs Ruckus. Third place was secured by Who Dat (2-0) over Go Below Me. Next year’s CRO will be run by this year’s winners, Billy Martin, Fiona Gordan, Ben Greenfield , Britany Haas, Bobby Martin, and Sarah Whalen.
