Ansgar Jordan, Sailing

Jordan was skipper for some solid performances by the Tufts B division team at the College Sailing Dinghy Nationals in New Orleans Thursday though Sunday last week (May 19-22). Tufts finished ninth overall, their best showing at the national championship regatta since 2015. They were fifth among New England teams. First the Jumbos need to qualify out of the Western Semifinals by placing among the top nine teams. They were fifth as team, with Jordan and senior crew Ann Sheridan earning fourth place (freshman William Eykyn crewed one race). Advancing to the national finals, the Jumbos had a strong second day to finish ninth in the team standings after being 15th on the first day. Jordan skippered Tufts' B team to fifth in the nation for the division, including a win and two second-place finishes on Sunday which helped Tufts move into ninth place as a team.
