NEW LONDON, Conn. (AP) For the second straight year, Yale's crew team appeared to defeat rival Harvard in the 151st regatta, but the victory may not be so clear-cut.

Rough conditions on Connecticut's Thames River on Sunday wreaked havoc on the nation's oldest collegiate sporting event.

For the first time a boat was unable to finish because it had sunk.

Yale jumped out to an early lead before the Harvard crew's boat took on water and had to stop racing about 3 minutes into the four-mile race. Harvard rowers had to be rescued. No one was injured.

The Harford Courant reports several hours after the race was over officials declared it a no contest. The newspaper reports it's possible the race could be held again, but Yale doubts that will happen.
