ICSA Women’s Dinghy Championship

In 1961, the New England Women's Intercollegiate Sailing Association (NEWISA) was formed when New England no longer permitted women to sail in varsity regattas. Eventually, NEWISA, and her sister organization, the Middle Atlantic Association of Women Sailors (MAAWS), organized the first women's nationals in 1967. Policies and procedures for the event were set at the ICYRA annual meeting in 1970, and in 1978 the results of the Women's Nationals were first included in the scoring for the Leonard Fowle Trophy.

Gerald Miller was the coach at Boston University in the late 1960's and was one of the originators of the first women's nationals. 

The Miller trophy is given to the first place team in women's nationals.
