By Kelly Stannard

The Yale University Bulldogs won the 2012 Southern New England Team Race (SNETR) this weekend hosted by Connecticut College on the Thames River in New London, Conn. Twelve teams from four conferences competed, one full round robin was completed on Saturday with a top six and bottom six round taking place on Sunday.

Head coach Jeff Bresnahan and the Camel team, along with the excellent group of umpires, helped to make it a successful event. After the first round robin, Yale came out and took a commanding lead loosing only one race. Hobart established themselves in second place with only two losses. Following closely in third was Boston College and Stanford, both held records of 8-3 after round one.

There was only time for one full round robin to be completed on Saturday, which was a chilly and rainy day for everyone! Sunday brought much warmer temps and some sunshine on the Thames River. After a slight wind delay the southerly filled for ideal team racing and a top six and bottom six were sailed. 
Charleston came back with a vengeance in the top six round winning four out of five races and propelling themselves back to the top of the list. Also, similar to their first round, Yale had a strong showing with a record of 3-2, while the rest of the teams all went 2-3. Yale won the event overall with a final record of 13-3, Hobart and Charleston tied for second with records of 11-5 and Boston College and Stanford both had a record of 10-6.
