The Hoya women finish 16th of 18 teams.

May 30, 2014

WASHINGTON - Following the final races of the Intercollegiate Sailing Association (ICSA) Sperry Top-Sider Women's National Championship, the Hoyas finished 16th of 18 teams to compete for the Gerald C. Miller Trophy. Dartmouth College won the event, held on the Severn River and hosted by the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Md.

The day started with a short on-shore postponement while the race officials waited for the breeze to fill in. The temperature was in the 60s with cloudy skies. After a set and a half the breeze died again and the teams went in for a long break. By the afternoon temperatures rose to about 70 degrees with more sun in the sky and the winds shifted to the east remaining light and eventually shifted toward the south, stable but light, topping off around five knots.

The A division sailed in Z420s and the B division sailed in FJs. The sailors completed seven races on Friday in both divisions on windward leeward courses with four legs for a total of 17 races in each division for the championship.

The Hoyas totaled 417 points (231 A division, 186 B division), good enough for 16th place over the two-day finals.

Racing will continue with the APS Team Racing National Championship, which will take place from Saturday, May 31 through Monday, June 2 at St. Mary's College of Maryland. Sixteen teams will report at 8:30 a.m. for a competitor's briefing and the racing will follow.
