The top 8 will begin the championship series shortly. Yale, Brown, Stanford, Roger Williams, St. Mary’s, Georgetown and Navy will all accompany C of C in the championship round.
The Cougars were able to clinch a spot in the Championship round, and came out with a 2-1 record throughout the first 3 races of the championship series.
The Cougars will sail 4 more races tomorrow morning, and if they are able to maintain a top 4 standing they will advance to the finals.

The College of Charleston Sailing Team finished up the top 8 round with a 4-3 record, which put them in a three way tie with Brown and Georgetown for 3rd. Only the top 4 will advance.
We are still awaiting final word on what the official tie-breaking procedures are… And we very well may see a sail-off sometime soon to determine who gets the last 2 spots heading into the final four.
We will keep you updated!
There will be a 3 way sail-off to determine which teams advance to the Final Four. All races will count, so the Cougars must win both of their 2 races in order to advance.
Sail-off round is set to begin shortly!
Tune in to the event Livestream and show your Cougars some support:
Congratulations to all of our sailors on their 5th out of 14 finish!
