PROVIDENCE, R.I. - The MIT sailing team opened the spring season this past weekend, but could only muster three wins at the six-team Sharpe Trophy hosted by Brown University. The Engineers finished in last place at 3-17 in the round robin format, as cross-town rival Harvard University won the event with a 17-3 mark. Also participating were Roger Williams University, Tufts University, and University of Rhode Island.
The Engineers will try to return to their winning ways when they compete in the Admiral Moore Regatta next weekend in Throgs Neck, N.Y. MIT will also take part in the St. Mary's Trophy in St. Mary's City, Md.
