Sailing Records Third-Place Finish at ICSA Team Race National Championships

May 29, 2017

WASHINGTON - With a bad forecast for Monday, racing in the 2017 ICSA LaserPerformance Team Race National Championships was completed on Sunday. The Georgetown University sailing team finished third as they advanced to final four round robin, sailed on the Cooper River in Charleston, S.C.

An aggressive race schedule was made possible due to good conditions with winds from the southwest around 7 knots and temperatures in the 80s to start the day. Once places 9-16 were determined at the completion of the first round robin, the winds increased to 8-10 knots for the next round.

Georgetown easily advanced to the top eight round robin. Following 27 races, places 5-8 were determined with the Blue & Gray advancing to the final four round robin.

Going into the final four, the College of Charleston was still leading the regatta, but tied in number of wins and loses with Yale. Georgetown and Boston College were trailing closely behind. Once CofC won its second race in the final round, the Cougars clinched the regatta win. With the regatta decided, Charleston closed the regatta with a win against Yale, apropos as the Cougars upset Yale’s four-year winning streak.

“The conditions were really nice today and we were in every race,” Sailing Head Coach Michael J. Callahan said. “We made some simple mistakes, but we are a young team, so it is to be expected, but we would have loved to do better. Our morale was good today, and it was a long day, but when we were mathematically locked out of winning the regatta, we may have lost a little energy. Charleston did a great job, sailed really well and their coaches did a good job taking their team to win nationals.”

The Hoyas will return to the water on Tuesday for the 2017 ICSA Gill Coed National Championships, a four-day regatta.
