Hawaii co-ed
sailing team in sixth
at Dinghy Nationals

The University of Hawaii co-ed sailing team stands in sixth place after the first day of the three-day Dinghy Nationals on the Charles River in Cambridge, Mass., yesterday.

Both Hawaii crews finished fifth in their respective divisions, with senior skipper Josh Henrich's group collecting 29 points in the "A" division and Brent Harrill scoring 25 points in the "B" division.

The Rainbows trail three teams -- College of Charleston, Tufts and Georgetown -- by only three points, but are 17 points behind overall leader Boston College.

UH's "B" division entry of Harrill and Jennifer Warnock outsailed the leaders by a single point on the first day but could not compete with the Eagles' near-perfect 11-point performance in the three-person event.

Only four of 18 planned races were completed on the first day.
