Tenth-ranked Stanford Coed Sailors are hoping to see their ranking jump after beating #3 Yale, #6 U Hawaii and #9 UC Irvine at this weekend's McIntyre Team Race Regatta at Stanford. The 6th-ranked Stanford Women sailors earned a close 2nd to U South Florida's Women this weekend at U South Florida's annual Women's Intersectional.

McIntyre Team Race at Stanford

"Team Racing encompasses it all," explained Head Coach Jay Kehoe. "If you are good at team racing, you can do it all, and we've finally reached our stride as a top team racing team." Even in tough light-air conditions, the Cardinal were consistent with three losses all weekend. Sailing for Stanford in the 3-on-3 team race format were Pete Deming/Lucy Horton, Eddie Conrad/Anna Vu, Emery Wager/Becca Levin and Jeff Allen/Jo Madsen.

For two days on the basin in Redwood City, no one was able to touch #1-ranked USC, whose players went twelve races with no losses. "They were fast in the light air and smart at the team racing tactics," explained Assistant Coach Brent Harrill, who leads the training for Stanford's team race team.

The McIntyre Team Race is named for Jeremy McIntyre '94 who was killed by an avalanche while skiing in 1999. Jeremy was a captain of the Stanford Team and an ICSA All-American while at Stanford. The Stanford Team was honored to have Jeremy's parents, David & Barabara were on hand to watch racing, and even help on the Race Committee's start boat! The McIntyre's awarded the trophies on Sunday afternoon to winners USC, Stanford and Yale.
