Georgetown Sailing Off to a Good Start at World University Championships

July 1, 2014

WASHINGTON - After one day of racing on Lake Ledro in Trentino, Italy, the Georgetown University sailing team, carries a 4-1 record at the World University Match Racing Championships, where the Hoyas are representing the United States.

The United States, comprised of Hoyas Nevin Snow (San Diego, Calif./Cathedral Catholic), Alex Post (Chicago, Ill./Loyola Academy), AJ Reiter (San Diego, Calif./Point Loma) and Katia DaSilva (East Greenwich, R.I./Portsmouth Abbey), recorded wins over France, Great Britain, Canada and Singapore. The US's only loss came at the hands of Australia - one of the five countries with two teams in the competition.

Day one saw good weather conditions, with sun and steady wind in the morning hours, followed by a brief calm during the middle and another good breeze in the afternoon. Of the 109 scheduled matches, only 43 were finished due to a short burst or rain.

The United States will sail against Italy and Russia on day two. The top two from that bracket will move on to the quarterfinals outright. The next two will move into the repachage round with a chance to win and move on to the quarterfinals as well.
