GW Sailing Set for Trio of Regattas This Weekend
Colonials Aiming for Top Finish in Preparation for America's Trophy
This Weekend: The George Washington Sailing Team competes in a trio of regattas this weekend: the Navy Spring Regatta at the U.S. Naval Academy, the Thompson Trophy at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy, and the Owen Trophy at Cornell.
The Navy Spring Regatta: The Colonials will send a veteran group to Navy to sail against top MAISA rivals in preparation for the Coed Conference Championship in two weeks. Leading the team in the A Division boat will be skipper Brendan Shanahan and crew Miranda Bakos, while skipper Kai Freisecke and crew Riley Legault will be competing in the B Division. Belle Strachan will serve as the alternate crew for the regatta. Scores can be followed here.
Thompson Trophy: Three boats will take the water for GW: skipper Andrew Sheerin and crew Shira Golub in A Division, skipper Sam White and crew Alexandra Fayer in B Division, and skipper Wade Wagner and crew Gabby Malek in C Division, with Connor West serving as an alternate crew. Scores can be followed here.
Owen Trophy: Set to sail in A Division for the Colonials are skipper Adam DiDomizio and crew Matt Homa, while skipper Marie Line and crew Sam Mandell will be competing in the B Division. Scores can be followed here.
Pearce's Points: "I'm thrilled that we're competing at the premier national regattas every weekend, and this weekend is particularly impressive," said head coach John Pearce. "It's an indication of how far our team has come as we approach the end of our fourth varsity year. We have a veteran group headed to Navy and a younger group going to the Thompson and Owen, which is a great opportunity for them to cut their teeth against the very best teams in the country."
In the Rankings: In the latest Sailing World College Rankings, GW is 17th in the coed poll and 14th in the women's.
Looking Ahead: Next weekend, the Colonials are headed to the Admiral's Cup, the Arrigan Memorial Regatta and the MAISA Women's Championship.
