Sailing Competes at Two Team Race Events

March 27, 2012

Szambecki Memorial Team Race - 5th of 8 Chris Barnard, Pete Johns, Sydney Bolger, Tory Lynch, Hilary Kenyon, Rebecca Evans

A variety of weather and wind conditions this weekend challenged the Hoyas at the Szambecki Memorial Team Race hosted by Old Dominion University. Light winds on day one made it difficult to complete races and the team was 2-3 after the first day of racing. Sunday saw rain and fog with winds ranging from 5-12 knots. The team finished the first round robin at 4-3 but went 3-4 in the second round, leaving them in 5th place overall. In addition to the 2nd ranked Hoyas, this event featured 7 other teams ranked in nationally in the top 15. The College of Charleston was the eventual winner of the regatta. Certainly the team did not compete at its top potential, but will be looking forward to the Team Race Nationals Qualifiers in two weeks.

Admiral Moore Team Race Interconference - 4th of 10 Andrew Mason, Dan Eichler, Matt Gowell, Merritt Moran, Leslie Cowen, Annalee Leggett

Strong current and good breeze on both days of racing defined the racecourse at the Admiral Moore Team Race at SUNY Maritime College. The East River always presents challenging conditions and this was certainly no exception. In the first round of races the Hoyas were 4-5 but held wins over conference rival St. Mary's and a team from the defending national champions Roger Williams. The team was a much-improved 6-3 in the second round besting, among others, Hobart and Dartmouth. This positioned the team for a spot in the final four, where they were 1-2, finishing 4th overall with an 11-10 record for the weekend.



Hoya Sailing will be back in action on April 7-8 at the Prosser Trophy, which is the Middle Atlantic Conference qualifier for Team Race Nationals. This coming weekend is Georgetown Sailing's Annual Parent's Regatta & Dinner.
