St Mary’s Team Race Interconference - 1st of 10
The Hoya Team Racing squad continued their winning ways with another big victory at the St. Mary’s Team Race Interconference Regatta. Light, shifty winds provided a totally different set of conditions from last weekend’s winning effort at the Naval Academy. 10 of the best teams in college sailing participated at the event, making for several tense races and a very close event throughout the weekend. Georgetown went 7-2 in the first round, losing to Hobart and Stanford, and then were 6-3 in the second round robin with losses to Boston College, Hobart, and Yale. Those rounds both saw victories for the team over conference rivals Navy and St. Mary’s as well as defending national champion Roger Williams.
In the final four bracket the Hoyas went 2-1, enough to secure a tie with Boston College, which the team won due to their 2-1 record against the Eagles over the course of the weekend. This effort will give the team further motivation in the coming weeks to continue this streak of great results.
Navy Spring Women’s Interconference - 1st of 20 w/266 points
In a commanding performance the Women’s team dominated the Navy Spring Regatta, demonstrating their top potential against the best Women’s teams in college sailing. In A Division Sydney Bolger and Rebecca Evans won the weekend by a significant margin of 33 points. Light winds on Saturday gave way to breezier and choppier seas on Sunday, but the team was not phased by the changes and continued to sail well through all 20 races. This is a great result for the group and represents the time put in during the Spring Break practices. More opportunities in the coming weeks will give the team further chances for success.
John Jackson Memorial Team Race - 4th of 8
Tough conditions on the Washington Sailing Lagoon all weekend made for a challenging set of races for the Hoyas at their home event. The regatta is named in honor of John Jackson, an alum of the sailing team who tragically passed in 2003. The regatta brought many quality teams from the Middle-Atlantic and New England conferences together for a high level of racing. The team sailed well in the first round robin but struggled to convert combinations in the second round, which led to several losses against lower ranked opponents. In the final four, the group recovered to go 1-2 and finish the weekend on a positive note. A variety of skippers and crews sailed throughout the regatta, allowing many to gain necessary experience that will be useful in the weeks ahead.
Hoya Sailing will be back in action this coming weekend at the Truxton Umsted Regatta at the Naval Academy & at the St. Mary’s Women’s Interconference Regatta at St. Mary’s College of Maryland.
