Austin, Texas. (June 6, 2012) – Today was the first day of the ICSA/Gill Coed Dinghy National Championship, co-hosted by the University of Texas Sailing Team and the Austin Yacht Club. The top eighteen collegiate sailing teams in the nation reported to the regatta venue on Lake Travis in Austin, Texas to compete for the Henry A. Morss Memorial Trophy, awarded to the winning team. The trophy was donated by a group of nationally known yachtsmen as a memorial to Henry A. Morss, a Boston yachtsman and 1907 Bermuda Race winner, as well as a Massachusetts Institute of Technology alumnus and benefactor.
Georgetown University led the regatta all-day and finished up the day’s racing in first place by 19 points. “Today was very good for us, we had consistent sailing all day,” said Mike Callahan, head coach of the Georgetown Sailing Team. "The fleet is stacked with very good sailors and a lot of All-Americans, so sailing consistently in the top 10 is difficult, but must be done to place well in the regatta".
Sailing for Georgetown is Chris Barnard ’13 (Newport Beach, Calif.) and Hilary Kenyon ’13 (Wayzata, Minn.) in A-division and Evan Aras ’12 (Annapolis, Md.) and Katherine Canty ’12 (Vero Beach, Fla.) in B-division.
The fleet is deep with talented competitors and the scores are close with many more races to go. For additional regatta information and live results visit the event website:
The competitors will report tomorrow morning at 9 a.m. and racing will get underway around 10 a.m. The conditions are predicted to be 6-8 knots and cloudier skies, hopefully keeping some of the heat at bay.
