WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University sailing team advanced to the finals of the Intercollegiate Sailing Association (ICSA) Sperry Top-Sider Women's National Championship following the completion of the second day of racing on Wednesday on the Severn River, hosted by the U.S. Naval Academy. The Hoyas are one of 18 teams to reach the finals from the original 28-team field, which was divided into two fleets of 14 teams.

The two fleets were tabbed the Western and Eastern semifinal groups with the top nine from each fleet advancing. The Hoyas competed in the Eastern semifinal group, finishing seventh overall in the semifinals with 125 points.

Today the fleets swapped the type of boats that they were sailing from yesterday, so the Western fleet sailed in Z420s and the Eastern fleet sailed in FJs. The courses were again windward leeward with four legs.

The conditions in the morning were light winds around six miles per hour from a north / northwesterly direction and temperatures in the high 70s with pretty high humidity. As the day progressed there was some cloud cover and a brief light rain. The temperature hovered around 80 degrees. The wind continued to come from a northwesterly direction averaging about five miles per hour, until the end of the day when the wind got very light shifted to a southeasterly direction.

The scoreboard is wiped clean for the finals on Thursday, so teams will start fresh in the new event, with races beginning Thursday morning at 9:30 a.m. The top 18 teams will be competing for the Gerald C. Miller Trophy over the two-day final.
