Two Hoyas Qualify for the ICSA Men’s Singlehanded National Championship
On the weekend of October 6-7 three Hoya Sailors competed at the Carl Van Duyne Regatta which is the MAISA Singlehanded Conference Championship. Former Hoya greats Andrew Campbell and Charlie Buckingham won this event a combined 7 times in seven tries. This year it was Chris Barnards turn to take home the trophy. Chris easily beat the other 17 competitors and won by a large margin. The regatta was exciting for spots 2-5 as the top 4 sailors get a berth at the ICSA Singlehanded Nationals in Long Beach, CA November 2-4. Freshman Nevin Snow was able to put together a great run in the beginning and end of the regatta and finished tied for 3rd earning a berth to Nationals. Freshman Greg Martinez started out strong winning the first race but unfortunately dislocated his kneecap in the middle of the regatta and was not able to sail the final six races.
Chris and Nevin will compete at the ICSA Singlehanded Nationals Nov 2-4 at the US Sailing Center in Long Beach, CA. They join Nancy Hagood who qualified for the Women’s Singlehanded Nationals which will be held at the same location.
Hoyas Win Tom Curtis Memorial Regatta
The Georgetown Hoyas dominated their only home regatta of the semester. The Tom Curtis regatta is named in honor of Thomas Curtis ’68 who was one of the best sailors in the history of the Georgetown program and the only sailor in the Georgetown Athletics Hall of Fame. Tom died in a tragic sailing accident in 1979 and this regatta was started by his parents in the early 1980’s. This year Tom’s sister Liz and nephews Curtis and Pearce came to watch the races and root for the Hoyas.
The Hoyas dominated the regatta from start to finish and their closest competitors Navy and St. Mary’s could never catch up. In A div Michael Schalka and McKenzie Stough sailed Saturday and Matt Gowell and Troy Lynch sailed Sunday. They combined to win A division by over 30 points.
Hoyas Finish 2nd at Navy Fall Regatta
The Georgetown Hoyas took on the top 20 teams in the country at the Navy Fall Intersectional October 13-14. The Navy Fall features four divisions of sailing and 80 boats total on the water. The Hoyas finished right behind the college of Charleston in 2nd place overall. Chris Barnard and Hilary Kenyon won A division. Nevin Snow and Tory Lynch finished 4th in B. Greg Martinez was third in C and Alex Post finished fourth in D.
Georgetown Sailing Qualifies for the ICSA Match Racing National Championship
The Georgetown Sailing Team competed at the MAISA Conference Championship for Match Racing this past weekend at the Merchant Marine Academy in Kings Point New York. The Hoyas Team consisted of skipper Nevin Snow and crew Matt Gowell, Alex Post and Hilary Kenyon. Match Racing pits one boat from one school versus one boat from another school in a format similar to the Americas Cup. The Hoyas haven’t competed in Match Racing very much because we don’t own the type of boat that the match is sailed in which puts our team at a huge disadvantage against teams that sail the boats everyday. The Hoyas had one day of practice before sailing against St. Mary’s, Hobart, Old Dominion, Navy, Kings Point and SUNY Maritime. The one day of practice combined with the skill of Nevin Snow and coaching of Janel Zarkowsky was enough as the Hoyas finished 2nd overall with a record of 9 wins and three losses. The Hoyas now move on to the ICSA Match Race National Championship at the Forth Worth Boat Club from November 16-18.
