Bowdoin Coed Sailors Named NEISA Sailors of the Week

BRUNSWICK, Maine – Bowdoin's Coed Sailing team has collectively earned New England Intercollegiate Sailing Association Sailors of the Week in honors announced on Tuesday.

Polar Bears Matt Kaplan '19, Christian Filter '20, Matt Safford '20, Louisa Lindgren '19, Marie Bergsund '20, Emily Gonzalez '20 and Julia Adams '21 were recognized for their efforts at last week's Fowle Trophy for Bowdoin.

The team finished fourth at the Fowle Trophy, earning the program's first-ever bid to the ICSA Laser Performance Team Race National Championship. Bowdoin finished with 11 wins in an extremely close regatta.

The Polar Bears will return to the water this weekend at the Women's Team Race (Brown) and Owen/Mosbacher/Knapp Trophies (Yale).
