Hoya Sailing Wins America Trophy

April 18, 2013

WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University sailing team won the America Trophy last weekend, a regatta that serves as the coed fleet racing championship. The event, held right off the Robert Crown Sailing Center at the Naval Academy, features the top 18 teams from the Mid-Atlantic Intercollegiate Sailing Association (MAISA) conference, sailing both 420s and FJs.

The Hoyas, ranked No. 1 in the April 17 Sailing World college rankings presented by Sperry Top-Sider, dominated the event from start to finish. Though the winds and current varied throughout the regatta, the Hoyas were prepared for all conditions.

In the A division, senior Chris Barnard paired up with Hilary Kenyon (16 races) and Leslie Cowen (2 races) and GU finished in the top five in all but one race, winning the division by 38 points.

The B division saw freshman Nevin Snow and seniors Tory Lynch (16 races) and Leslie Cowen (2 races) finish second.

This marks the seventh-consecutive year that the Blue & Gray have finished first at the spring conference chamionships. The Hoyas now move on to the semifinal of the Intercollegiate Sailing Association (ICSA) Coed National Championship as the top seed in the East region. THE ICSA semifinals will be held April 27-28 at Hampton University in Hampton, Va.

The Hoyas will continue the season this weekend in two events. The women's team, ranked fourth nationally, will compete in its conference championships at Hampton University.
