Georgetown Sailing Competes in Three Regattas Over the Weekend

March 28, 2017

WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University sailing team competed in three events last weekend, competing at the Admiral Moore Team Race, Szambecki Team Race and the Hanbury Team Race, turning in a pair of top-three performances.

Admiral Moore Team Race (3rd of 10)
Fresh off a second-place performance at the Graham Hall Team Race, Georgetown’s top team went to the Admiral Moore Team Race at SUNY Maritime to compete against nine other schools. This event was important because SUNY will host the MAISA team race championships in two weeks. The East River is quite tricky and can confuse sailors easily.

The Hoyas sailed well at the beginning of the regatta, but lost some focus toward the end of the day and had three losses – one each to Navy, Charleston and Stanford. The team was disappointed with the results from the first day but came back on Sunday to sail much better. Sunday’s racing featured a round robin among the top six teams. The Hoyas sailed to a 4-1 record with another loss to Navy but wins over Stanford, Charleston, St. Mary’s and GW.

The Hoyas ended up tied at 10-4 with Navy and Stanford for first place but came out on the wrong end of the tie break having only won a single race among those teams. Navy finished first and Stanford second. The Hoyas will have two weeks to sharpen their skills before the conference championships take place on April 8-9.

Szambecki Team Race (2nd)
A younger group of Hoyas headed to the Szambecki Team Race to compete against a mix of first and second teams from around the country. The Hoyas fielded two seniors, three sophomores and three freshmen on their squad.

The Hoyas dominated rounds one and two of the event going a combined 13-1 winning most races with ease. The second day started out the same as the first with good wins against St. Mary’s and Navy and Charleston but the Hoyas sailed poorly against Tufts and lost, setting up a winner-take-all race against Old Dominion. Things could not have gone worse for the Blue & Gray as all three boats started poorly and ODU sailed to an easy 1,2,3 win. The Hoyas ended up with a record of 18-3, which tied them for first, but they lost the tie breaker having gone 1-2 vs. the Monarchs. The results were encouraging, however, as the Hoyas were dominant when sailing at full strength and ability.
