Washington, D.C. - The Georgetown University sailing team will be on ESPNU on Sunday, July 20 at 11 p.m. EST as the cable channel airs the Collegiate Sailing National Championships. On the final day of competition at this year's sailing championships, the Hoyas rallied with a strong finish to win the University's first-ever Fleet Racing national title.

For the fourth year, ESPNU's presentation of collegiate sailing features the top young sailors competing for this trophy that dates back to 1937. Onboard cameras and microphones highlight the action of the 18 teams from across the United States. Special features include interviews with recent All-Americans who are now heading to China for the Olympic Games, a segment with former College Sailor of the Year Ken Read as he discusses his participation in the upcoming Volvo Ocean Race and some collegiate sailors who went on to compete in the America's Cup, held in Newport, R.I.

The New York Yacht Club hosted the 36 race series on Narragansett Bay June 2-4. Sunday's program is hosted by Gary Jobson, former All-American collegiate sailor and currently ESPN's sailing analyst.

Following the 2008 season that saw Georgetown's first-ever Fleet Racing national title, Chris Behm (Hampton, Va./Hampton Roads Academy) was awarded the Everett B. Morris Trophy, given to the College Sailor of the Year. This is the second time the honor has been bestowed upon a Georgetown sailor with Andrew Campbell receiving the trophy in 2006. In addition to Behm's Coed All-America Honors, four other Hoyas were recognized as All-Americans.

Blaire Herron (Coronado, Calif./Coronado) was named a Women's All-American for the second-straight year. Leigh Fogwell (Greenwich, Conn./Greenwich) and Carly Chamberlain (Newport Beach, Calif./Newport Harbor) took home Crew All-America honors. Charlie Buckingham (Newport Beach, Calif./Newport Harbor) became the only freshman All-American in the nation.
