Yale coach says committee will decide outcome of regatta

HARTFORD, Conn. – Yale’s rowing coach says a committee will determine whether the Bulldogs won the 151st regatta with archrival Harvard, or if it will go down in the books as a no contest.

Yale was leading the heavyweight race in poor conditions on the Thames River Sunday when Harvard’s shell began taking on water and the Crimson crew had to be evacuated into launch boats.

Yale went on to finish the race, but was informed two hours later that because a judge had put up a red flag when the incident occurred, no winner would be declared.

Yale coach Steve Gladstone says the regatta committee, which includes officials from both schools, will meet to review that decision. He says it could take a few weeks to get a final ruling.
