GW Sailing Places 12th at Greater New York Dinghy Regatta
Spector and Young's Third-Place Race Finish Highlights Weekend
April 8, 2013
BRONX, N.Y. - Freshmen Jay Spector and Henry Young peaked with a third-place showing in Race 2 as the George Washington sailing team finished 12th out of 18 teams at the Greater New York Dingy Regatta.
The Colonials amassed 134 points through six races to edge 13th-place Cornell by a point and finish ahead of Princeton, Syracuse, Wesleyan, Army and Fairfield. Brown won the event with 25 points.
"Racing was cut short on Sunday due to heavy winds with only two B Division races, so most of the racing happened on Saturday with lighter winds," said head coach John Pearce. "We had a young squad that made some rookie mistakes, but they had good speed and did some things well, so hopefully this was a good building block for our younger racers to build upon."
Spector and Young placed 11th in the A Division with 63 points, paced by their early third-place finish and a ninth-place effort in Race 5.
GW now prepares for its biggest regatta of the spring season with the MAISA Coed Conference Championship - the America's Trophy - in Annapolis, Md., on April 13 and 14. "We've got a big week of practice ahead of next weekend, everybody's really pumped up about getting ready for the America's Trophy," added Coach Pearce.
