America Trophy: 1st of 18 w/59 points

B Div: 1st w/31 pts - Chris Barnard / Hilary Kenyon

Georgetown Sailing dominated the competition at the MAISA Spring Conference Championship, the America Trophy, hosted this past weekend at Hobart William Smith College in Geneva, NY.  Light winds on Saturday kept the competing teams from completing very many races, but Sunday’s warmer temperatures brought better breeze for close to ideal conditions on Seneca Lake.  The Hoyas sailed extremely well in both divisions and won the event by a 37-point margin over second place St. Mary’s College.

The Blue & Gray have now won the conference’s Spring Championship two years in a row and 5 of the past 6 years.  This result, when combined with the team’s win at the Fall Championships, further demonstrates how well the squad has faired at Fleet Race events in the 2011-2012 year.

 MAISA Spring Open: 5th of 16 w/142 points

A Div: 5th w/72 pts - Nancy Hagood, Amanda Taselaar / Tory Lynch, Annalee Leggett

B Div: 4th w/70 pts - Merritt Moran / Genevieve Burgoyne

At the MAISA Spring Open hosted by the Naval Academy in Annapolis, MD, the Hoyas had one great day of results but could not finish well on Sunday to cement their early success.  12 of the regatta’s 16 races were sailed in shifty, puffy conditions on Saturday, while Sunday’s heat brought a 10 knot seabreeze and significant chop.  Nancy Hagood and Tory Lynch led the A division after Saturday but the tough conditions on day two challenged the crews of both divisions and the Hoyas had a few tough races that dropped the team from 2nd to 5th.  This event held a mix of competitive teams and was a great chance for members of the Women’s team to get some quality racing in before the qualifier this weekend.


 

 

Hoya Sailing will be back in action this coming weekend at the MAISA Spring Women’s Championship held at Old Dominion, the Arrigan Memorial Regatta hosted by Georgetown at the Washington Sailing Marina, and the Admiral’s Cup at the USMMA.
