WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University sailing team finished second at the Mid-Atlantic Intercollegiate Sailing Association (MAISA) Conference Team Race for the Prosser Trophy at Navy last weekend. The Hoyas were just one win shy of first place with 17 wins to their credit.
The Prosser Trophy is the conference championship for team racing and is generally considered the toughest regatta in MAISA. The format of the event is a triple round robin among the top eight teams in the conference. The Hoyas, a team that started out strong this spring, were coming off their worst performance of the year where they went 8-13 at the Szambecki Team Race.
All season, the Hoyas have struggled with sailing in big breeze. Unfortunately, Saturday's forecast for Annapolis, Md., was 15-35mph winds. Despite the unfavorable conditions the Hoyas were flawless on Saturday going 15-1 including 7-0 in the first round. The Hoyas used eight different crews, subbing constantly to keep everyone fresh.
At the end of the second round the Hoyas had already clinched a berth to the national championship. Sunday's conditions were very light and shifty with the wind dying down in the morning. The Hoyas lost a close race to Navy and then followed that up with a loss to St. Mary's. The Hoyas led in both races but made some critical mistakes on the last leg of each race. The loss to St. Mary's meant the Hoyas would finish second in the regatta.
While the loss was a disappointment, the Hoyas will now focus on the Intercollegiate Sailing Association (ICSA) Team Race National Championship from May 31-June 2.
The Hoyas will compete in the Arrigan Regatta, a home event on the friendly waters of the Potomac River, and the Trux Regatta at Navy this weekend.
