#1 Ranked Hoyas win the War Memorial for 5th Year in a row

Hoyas win MAISA Coed Conference Championship

 

 

The #1 Ranked Georgetown University Coed Sailing Team won the War Memorial Regatta for the MAISA Coed Conference Championship this past weekend in Ithaca, NY.  The regatta, hosted by Cornell University, was sailed on Lake Cayuga is some of the most challenging conditions possible.  Saturday saw very light winds with huge differences in direction and velocity across the race course.  This made it very hard on the sailors to remain consistent.  Both A and B division for the Hoyas sailed well but each had a double digit finish which left the team in 3rd place overall behind St. Mary’s College and Hobart/ William Smith.  Sunday was an entirely different regatta.  The wind was much stronger but equally as shifty which again made consistency elusive.  In A division Nevin Snow and Meaghan Macrae did their best to stay on the favored side of the course each race and while they didn’t win a lot of races they were able to win their division by 15 points.  This put the pressure on the B division tandem of Sean Golden and Isabelle Luzuriaga.  Going into the last two races the Hoyas had built a 11 point lead over St. Mary’s College.  The first race of the set saw the wind shift hard to the right and pick up to about 15-20mph.  Sean and Isabelle Hung on for a 8th place finish but St. Mary’s was able to pick up points and come with in 6 of the lead.  As the wind increased Senior Jack Welty subbed in for Isabelle.  The wind in the last race gusted as high as 30mph with large windshifts coming over the hills around the lake.  Sean and Jack started ahead of St. Mary’s and covered them well upwind rounding the first mark about 4 places ahead.  St. Mary’s closed the gap on the run leg but Sean and Jack maintained control upwind.  As they were covering St. Mary’s on the final beat to windward a large shift nearly capsized the Hoyas to windward.  With the boat full of water and the wind and the waves increasing the Hoyas still managed to stay ahead of St. Mary’s going around the last mark.  On the final run to the finish as Jack was bailing water the St. Mary’s boat was able to surf the waves and plane ahead of the Hoyas and a pack of boats right at the finish.  Luckily the Hoyas were able to hold on to 11th place in the race and secure a 1 point victory. 

 

This is the fifth year in a row that the Hoyas have won the War Memorial.  The War Memorial Regatta has been in existence since 1964 and no team other than the Hoyas has ever won the event more than three years in a row. 

 

The Hoyas qualified for the Coed Atlantic Coast Championships in two weeks at Old Dominion University.

The Georgetown Women’s Sailing team had their first interconference event of the season and came out with a hard fought win. 

 

Sailing on the Severn River the Hoyas battled great competition as well as shifty NE Winds.  The A div duo of Seniors MaryKate Mezzetti and Bettina Redway sailed a brilliant regatta en route to winning their division.  The duo never finished out of the top ten and had only two races out of the top 5.  A tremendous performance.  In B division Rose and Isabelle started off slowly but gradually found their speed and confidence and ended up winning the last race which helped clinch the win.  In C division Haddon and Lola combined for a 2nd place finish.  Haddon won the first two races and Lola never finished worse than 4th. 

 

 

The Hoyas travel to Yale this weekend for the Yale Women’s Interconference Regatta. 

 

 

 

MAISA Men’s Singlehanded Championship

Overall (Top 4 move on to the National Championship)

1.     Nevin Snow

5. Greg Martinez

7. Jack Marshall

17. Clay Broussard

 

 

Nevin Snow won the MAISA Men’s Singlehanded Championship for the second year in a row.  The regatta was very competitive top to bottom and finding consistency was hard for everyone.  Nevin had only one race out of the top 10 and that was the main reason why he won the event by 24 points.  Greg came so close once again but finished 2 points shy of fouth place in a heartbreaking last race.  Greg sailed well and with just 3 races remaining was in 2nd overall but a string of double digit finishes at the end cost him an automatic qualifying spot at the National Championships.  Jack Marshall was also in the hunt to make nationals but he too finished with some double digit races.  Clay too had his ups and down and was only 16 points out of the top 10 by the end of the event.

 

 

 

Tom Curtis Regatta @ Georgetown

Combined divisions

1st.  AJ Reiter / Liz Mullarney (6 races) , Andy Reiter / Claire Mohun  (8 Races)

Overall  (top 3 of 9)

1.     Georgetown

2.     George Washington

3.     Navy

 

 

The Hoyas hosted their first event of the season this past weekend.   The Tom Curtis Memorial Regatta is named in honor of hall of famer Tom Curtis ’68.  The Hoyas made it a priority to win their home event this season and they came out with a fairly easy win.  In this combined division event the Reiter brothers and crews Liz Mullarney and Claire Mohun dominated the competition with 9 1sts, 4 2nds and a 4th place finish in 14 races.  The other division saw Jack Gerli and Rebecca
Fung be equally impressive with 2 1sts, 2 2nds and a 3rd place finish in 5 races.  Noah and Albert and Curtis and Grace came in to get experience and each improved a tremendous amount and helped the Hoyas to the overall win. 

 

 

 

This weekend the Hoyas will be in two events

Hoyas win their First Three Regattas!
Sep 15th 2015, 13:32

The Georgetown University Sailing Team started their 2015-16 season with a bang winning all three of their events. 

 

The results are as follows:

 

 

Women’s Laser Radial Regatta @ Navy

Overall out of 18

1.     Haddon Hughes ‘19

2.     Lola Bushnell ‘18

7.    Rose Edwards  ‘18

11.  MaryKate Mezzetti ‘16

 

 

The Georgetown Women’s team started off their season at the Navy Laser Radial Regatta which is a tune-up for the Conference Singlehanded Championship.  Right from the start of the event it was easy to see that Georgetown Freshman Haddon Hughes and Sophomore Lola Bushnell were the best two laser sailors at the event.  Haddon started off by winning the first five races in a row while Lola had four 2nds and a 4th.  The second day of the regatta saw Lola start out with a 1,1 and Haddon a 2,2 in the first two races.  In the end Haddon remained more consistent and won the 13 race event with 27 points.  Lola finished 2nd with 45 points.  Rose and MaryKate both improved dramatically over the course of the event. 

 

 

Men’s Laser Regatta @ Navy

Overall out of 20

1.     Greg Martinez ‘18

7.  Jack Marshall ’18

13. Clay Broussard ‘18

 

The Men’s Laser Regatta at Navy is the first round of qualifying for the Conference Singlehanded Championship in October.  This is typically a very good regatta and this year didn’t disappoint.  2013 College National Champion Greg Martinez returned to the water after some time off and showed he is still as talented as ever.  Greg sailed consistently well over the 13 race event en route to a 12 point win.  Jack and Clay each had one good day and one day of struggles over the 2 day event.  Jack was a little slow in the windier conditions on Saturday but made up a lot of points on Sunday in the shiftier winds and just missed out on qualifying by 4 points.  Clay sailed quite well on Saturday but struggled in the shifty weather.  Both Clay and Jack will try to qualify again at our next singlehanded even September 26-27 in New York. 

 

 

Riley Cup @ Old Dominion

Georgetown Team Gray

1st with 83 points

A div. 2nd  Roger Dorr ’18 / Bettina Redway ‘16

B div. 1st  Campbell D’Eliscu ’19 / Meaghan Macrae ‘18

 

 

Georgetown Team Blue

2nd with 108 points

A div. 1st AJ Reiter ‘17 / Rebecca Fung ‘19

B div. 4th Andy Reiter ’19 / Haley Shea ‘19

 

Overall (Top 4 of 17)

1.     Georgetown Blue                              83

2.     Georgetown Gray                           108

3.     St. Mary’s                                     138

4.     Old Dominion                         142

 

The Riley Cup is the first doublehanded event of the year and the Hoyas typically send their top new sailors to see how they fair in collegiate competition.  If this regatta is any indication of things to come then the Hoyas are looking good.  Georgetown sent two teams to the event and after 14 races on Saturday both teams were tied for 1st well ahead of the competition.  The conditions at Old Dominion were great both days with winds ranging between 10-20 mph.  Sunday saw the windiest and waviest conditions and that is where the Hoyas Blue team really excelled.  In B division Freshman Campbell D’Eliscu and sophomore Meaghan Macrae won the last four race in a row to win the division by 23 points.  Junior AJ Reiter and freshman Rebecca Fung won A division for the Gray team followed closely by teammates Roger Dorr and Bettina Redway in 2nd. 

 

 

The Hoyas have one event this week followed by two regattas this weekend. 

 

On Tuesday Sept 15 the Hoyas will join forces with GW sailing to represent the US in the Performace Sailcraft trophy vs. the British Collegiate All-Star team.  The event is a 3 on 3 laser team race.  Starting for the US team will be Greg Martinez. 

 

 

This weekend the Hoyas will be sailing at the Nevins Trophy and New York Maritime Open in New York.

Hoyas Win America Trophy - Sweep Spring Conference Championships
May 4th 2015, 15:57

 

Hoyas Win America Trophy – Snow Named Conference Sailor of the Year

 

The Georgetown University Coed Sailing Team finished its regular by winning the MAISA Conference Championship – The America Trophy.

 

The America Trophy featured the top 18 teams in the Conference competing at Old Dominion University.  The regatta was sailed in a very light NE wind which proved to be very challenging for most teams.  The light winds meant that only 12 of the scheduled 36 races were completed.  With such a small number of races the teams that were able to stay consistent and avoid double digit finishes were the ones that excelled.  The Hoyas plan was to be slightly conservative and avoid major risks.  The plan worked well as both A and B division remained consistently in the top 5.  In A division Nevin Snow and Katia DaSilva sailed quite well with only one race out of the top 6.  That was good enough for 2nd in A.  A division actually sailed 8 races but B division only completed six so the final two A races didn’t count in the final results.  Had they counted Nevin and Katia would have won A division by a comfortable margin.  In B division Alex Post and Bettina Redway dominated the competition finishing out of the top four only once.  Alex and Bettina were able to stay out of trouble and use their superior boatspeed to stay ahead when they found themselves in the lead. 

 

Overall Results

1.     Georgetown               48

2.     Old Dominion                        63      

3.     NY Maritime              74

4.     St. Mary’s College      80

5.     Kings Point                84

6.     Naval Academy          89

7.     Hobart and William Smith   106

 

This marks the 8th time in the last 9 years that the Hoyas have won the America Trophy a record that is unequaled in the 76 year history of the regatta. 

 

 

At the conclusion of the regatta the Mid Atlantic Sailing Conference Announced their end of the year awards.

Hoyas Win Prosser Trophy - Qualify for ICSA Team Race National Championship
Apr 21st 2015, 13:33

 The Georgetown University Sailing team traveled to Kings Point New York last weekend to compete at the 2015 Conference Championships in Team Racing.  The regatta featured the top 8 teams from the Mid Atlantic in a double round robin of races.  As tends to be the case at Kings Point the conditions were unlike any the team has practiced in on the Potomac.  Winds were from the NW at 15-25mph with 3-5 foot waves.  In these extreme conditions the Hoyas altered their normal starting lineup.  Sailing most of the day were the combinations of Nevin Snow/ Nancy Hagood, Sean Golden/ Jack Gerli, Alex Post / Katie Olsen.  Subbing in as crews were Jack Welty, MaryKate Mezzetti and Katia DaSilva.  Despite the extreme conditions the Hoyas dominated the regatta.  Round 1 saw the Hoyas defeat cross town rival GW and then defeat in order Hobart, St. Mary’s, Navy, Old Dominion and New York Maritime.  Round robin 2 saw the Hoyas lose one race to St. Mary’s but winning all other races.  When the first day ended the Hoyas were at 11-1 with two races left to go.  With a berth at the National Championship secured the Hoyas wanted to win the regatta and needed to beat Old Dominion and New York Maritime to clinch.  Sunday saw light winds and the Hoyas went with their normal starters Nevin Snow/ Katia DaSilva, Sean Golden / Isabelle Luzuriaga, Alex Post / Bettina Redway.  The final two races occurred in a light SW wind and the Hoyas made it look easy winning both races easily. 

 

The Hoyas ended up 13-1.  St. Mary’s was second at 12-2 and Navy 3rd at 6-8.

Navy Spring Intersectional - 20 Teams

A div. 1st w/ 75 points - Nevin Snow / MaryKate Mezzetti (6 races), Liz Mullarney (3 races), Nancy Hagood (6 races)

B div. 2nd w/ 71 points Alex Post / Bettina Redway (10 races), Albert Kraus (5 races)

 

Overall (top 5 of 20)

2. Charleston       157 points

3. Stanford           161 points

4. NY Maritime   207 points

5. Navy                  239 points

 

 

The Hoyas traveled to Navy this weekend to compete against some of the top schools in the country at the Navy Spring Intersectional Saturday was a gorgeous spring day in Annapolis. Skies were sunny, temperatures reached the upper 70s, the town was packed with revellers celebrating the annual USNA / St. John's croquet match and the Bay was packed with anglers out for the first day of Rockfish season. The one hitch was the extremely fickle wind that confounded racers and officials throughout the day. When the teams arrived, there was a decent north / northwest wind and a course was set in Annapolis Harbor. Two puffy and shifty races were completed per division before it got too light and the fleet went in for a lunch break. While the fleet was on shore, a light southeasterly filled in and the sailors headed out for two more races. These races weren't as shifty, but it was puffy and the powerboat chop added an extra challenge. The wind died again and the fleet returned to the dock to wait some more. After a short break, we headed out to the mouth of the Severn River by Greenberry Point. After a short wait on the water, a light southerly breeze filled in and two more races were completed.

 

Sunday was a very different day at the Navy Spring Regatta. Temperatures remained in the high 50s and low 60s under a hazy sky. The fleet left the dock at 9:30 and racing began shortly thereafter. Three races were held in the morning in a 8-12 knot easterly breeze. After a short lunch break, the wind increased to 13-20 knots and 6 more races were held in the afternoon, with race 15 starting just before the 3 PM cutoff time.

 

 

This was the first fleet race regatta for the Hoyas Coed team since the Rose Bowl in January and it only tune-up regatta before the Conference Championship May 2-3 at Old Dominion.  The Hoyas had a little rust in the beginning but improved gradually throughout the event.  For most of the day Sunday it was a three team battle for first with Georgetown, Stanford and the College of Charleston each taking turns in the lead.  The Hoyas got hot at the right time and were able to eek out an 11 point victory.  Both divisions sailed well and consistently and we even won A division without a single first place finish in the 15 race regatta. 

 

 

This weekend the Hoyas have two events

MAISA Women’s Championship @ St. Mary’s College

Robert P. Arrigan Memorial Regatta @ Georgetown

Hoyas nearing the end of the 2015 Spring Season
Apr 8th 2015, 12:57

 New Boats and lots of Ice were the themes for the first two months of the Spring Season.  The Hoyas have competed in 11 events so far.   Currently both the Coed and Women’s Teams are ranked #4 in the Nation.

 

 

The Spring Sailing season begins with a trio of events at the College of Charleston in Charleston, SC.  On Feb 22 the Hoyas sent a coed squad to compete at the Charleston Spring Intersectional. After two days of racing the Hoyas ended up in 3rd overall out of 18 teams.  The A division team of AJ Reiter and Liz Mullarney won three of the last four races to finish 1st in their division.  In B division Rose Edwards and crews Albert Kraus and Emily Ito finished 4th. 

 

The following weekend the Hoya Women’s Team began their season by competing at the Charleston Women’s Intersectional.  The Hoyas sailed a great event and finish in 1st place overall out of 14 teams.  In A division Nancy Hagood and Meaghan Macrae ended up 3rd overall and in B division Katia DaSilva and Madeline Higgins dominated the competition en route to a 19 point win. 

 

After a month of limited practice due to a frozen Potomac the Hoyas Team Racing Squad traveled to Charleston to compete in the Bob Bavier Team Race.  After two days of racing the Hoyas ended up in 3rd with a record of 10-4.  The regatta was won by defending national champions Yale who finished 12-2 with their only two losses coming at the hands of the Hoyas. 

 

After a week of Spring Break practice at the College of Charleston the Hoyas traveled back home to compete in three events on March 14-15.  At the John Jackson Team Race the Hoyas struggled to in heavy winds ending up in 6th overall with a 7-7 record.  Sailing for the Hoyas were

On March 21-22 the Hoyas were back at Navy and St. Mary’s for two more events.  This time the Women’s team competed at St. Mary’s in the St. Mary’s Women’s intersectional.  In what was one of the toughest regattas of the year the Hoyas ended up in 3rd overall.  In A division Nancy Hagood and Meaghan Macrae tied for 3rd while the B division duo of Katia DaSilva and Katie Olsen tied for 1st.

The Hoya Women dominated their Fall Conference Championship en route to a 42 point victory.  The top 14 MAISA Women’s teams competed for the conference championship in strong and shifty winds at the US Naval Academy.  The Hoyas started off strong and never looked back.  In A division Nancy Hagood and crews Meaghan Macrae and Isabelle Teare sailed a great event getting 5 firsts, 3 seconds in the 14 race event.  As the breeze got stronger they got better which is a great sign for things to come.  In B division Katia DaSilva and crews Katie Olsen and Liz Mullarney absolutely dominated the regatta.  They won their last 8 races in a row and finished with nine first places finishes and 3 second place finishes in 14 races.  It was amazing watching them win every race.  Even with bad starts Katia was able to catch up and take the lead by the first mark in almost every race.  Truly an exceptional performace. 

 

The win give the Hoya Women a berth to the Atlantic Coast Championship November 15-16 @ MIT and gives the women the #1 schedule rank for 2015.

The South #1 is the first qualifier for the coed conference championship.  The top four teams move on to the War Memorial while the next six move to the Luce Trophy.  This was a close regatta with St. Mary’s and GW and in the end the Hoyas pulled out a satisfying win.  A div. Sailors Alex Post and Bettina Redway struggled in some races and were on the wrong side of some wind shifts but they were able to win races when they needed to.  In B divison Sean and Isabelle sailed their best regatta to date winning 10 of the 15 races sailed including five of the last six. 

 

The Hoyas are now qualified for the War Memorial Regatta November 1-2 @ SUNY Maritime.

MAISA Men’s Singlehanded Championship

Overall

1.     Nevin Snow   60 points

5. Greg Martinez  106 points

8. Jack Marshall 119 points

12. Clay Broussard 148 points

 

The MAISA Men’s Singlehanded Championship is the conference championship and the qualifier for the ICSA Singlehanded National Championship.  The Hoyas had some good results and a few disappointments.  Nevin Snow sailed an incredible event and won by 17 points.  Nevin missed nationals last year and was determined to make it in 2014.  He was consistent and avoided big mistakes en route to a 17 point win.  Greg Martinez, last years ICSA Singlehanded National Champion missed qualifying for national by only 7 points.  Greg had a rough first day and wasn’t sailing his best and put himself in a big hole.  On Sunday when the wind was up he go a 1,1,2 to close the point gap but just missed making nationals.  Freshmen Jack Marshall and Clay Broussard both did well in their first conference championship.  They were a little too inconsistent to finish in the top 4 but both have tremendous potential. 

 

Nevin has earned a berth to the ICSA Singlehanded National November 7-9 in Bellingham, WA.  He joins teammate Lola Bushnell who qualified for the ICSA Women’s Singlehanded Championship two weeks ago.

The Hoyas make a point of winning their home events and this year was no different.  The Curtis Regatta is named for  an alum Thomas Curtis ’68 who was an amazing sailor and member of the GU Athletics Hall of Fame.  The Hoyas dominated both A and B division en route to the 56 point win.  Sailing in the Washington Sailing Marina Lagoon can be challenging for many teams and the Hoyas used their home court advantage to take the lead early and never look back.  The Hoyas won 14 out of the 22 races sailed.
