GU Sailing Wins Rose Bowl Regatta

Jan. 6, 2014

WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University sailing team won the 29th annual Rose Bowl Regatta, held in Long Beach, Calif., this past weekend. The Hoyas competed in a field of 26 collegiate teams sailing CFJ dinghies that measured 13 feet, 3 inches with the wind conditions varying from two knots on Saturday up to seven or eight on Sunday.

Sailing on a short trapezoid course set off the beach in front of spectators on the Belmont Veterans Memorial Pier, Georgetown put Nevin Snow (San Diego, Calif./Cathedral Catholic) and Elizabeth Mullarney (New York, N.Y./Sacred Heart) as the skipper and crew, respectively, in the A boat. In the B boat, skipper AJ Reiter (San Diego, Calif./Point Loma) was joined by crew Eliana Michaels (Sparkill, N.Y./Tappan Zee High School).

The boats put up logs of 2-1-3-7 and 3-6-2-3 in the A and B boats, respectively, capturing the title with 27 points. The Blue & Gray was 15 points ahead of second-place U.S. Coast Guard Academy (42), followed by Roger Williams (48), Eckerd (50) and College of Charleston (58) to round out the top five.

Reiter, skipper of the B boat, had two reasons to celebrate as his alma mater, Point Loma, won its eighth-consecutive High School Gold Fleet Championship.

The Hoyas will open the spring schedule with the College of Charleston Spring Intersectional in Charleston, S.C., as well as the Quad Meet at St. Mary's College of Maryland in Saint Mary's City, Md., on February 15-16.
