Oct. 14, 2012
ITHACA, N.Y. - George Washington sailing saw its two competing teams finish in sixth and 11th place at the 15-team North #2 Regatta hosted by Cornell on Cayuga Lake this weekend.
The event featured a full slate of Saturday sailing as 14 of the event's 15 races were completed on the opening day with just one race on Sunday morning.
The Colonials' first team of freshman Maria Sinagra and sophomore Matthew Ricci in A Division, and freshman Hannah McNomee and junior Sloan Dickey in B Division totaled 199 points over 15 races for a sixth-place showing. Host Cornell won the event with 103 points, followed by Hobart and William Smith Colleges (107 points), Buffalo (146), Columbia (174) and Webb Institute (188).
The second team of freshmen Benjamin Helfand and Alix Suter in A Division, and freshman Michael Ince and junior Christopher Nolfi in B Division amassed 286 points to edge out RPI for 11th place by two points.
Sinagra and Ricci were the highlight of the weekend as the duo placed fourth in the A Division with 73 points, trailing only Hobart and William Smith (34 points), Cornell (68) and Buffalo (70). The tandem posted 10 top-five finishes, including a victory in Race #14 and a second-place effort in Race #8. McNomee and Dickey recorded three top-five finishes, highlighted by a third-place effort in Race #15, en route to ninth place in their B Division with 126 points.
Helfand and Suter had a pair of top-five showings on their way to 12th place in the A Division with 155 points. Ince and Nolfi finished 10th in the B Division with 131 points - narrowly edged by teammates McNomee and Dickey - and had a fourth-place effort in Race #2 among their four top-five finishes.
GW sailing will spend its next two weekends in Kings Point, N.Y., first competing in the Kings Point Dinghy Open on Oct. 20 and 21 to prepare for the War Memorial MAISA Fall Championship on Oct. 27 and 28.
