WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University sailing team is in third place at the Intercollegiate Sailing Association (ICSA) Gill Coed National Championships, following Thursday's races on the St. Mary's River in St. Mary's City, Md. The Hoyas are tabbed third of 18 teams competing for the national title and the Henry A. Morss Memorial Trophy.
Racing got underway on time on Thursday and the conditions were some of the windiest the championship series has seen. The winds were 10-12 knots from the west-northwest causing whitecaps on the river. Temperatures were in the mid-70s and the winds were shifty causing difficult racing. By late afternoon, the winds started to die and sailors were sent to shore to wait for breeze. Racing was called after an hour of postponement.
Yale is leading after Thursday's races with a 48-point gap between the Bulldogs and the Tufts University Jumbos, currently in second. Yale was able to sail consistently to stay on top of the leaderboard, especially in the B division, where they have a 27-point lead over the second-place pairing, host St. Mary's College (Md.).
The Hoyas are in third place (141) with teams in hot pursuit behind them. Stanford University is just 11 points (152) behind the Blue & Gray, followed closely by St. Mary's (154) and Boston College (156).
Sailing for Georgetown in the A division is Nevin Snow (San Diego, Calif./Cathedral Catholic) with Katia DaSilva (East Greenwich, R.I./Portsmouth Abbey). In the B division, Alex Post (Chicago, Ill./Loyola Academy) is paired with both Katie Olsen (East Dennis, Mass./Cape Cod Academy) and Bettina Redway (Providence, R.I./St. George's).
