GW Sailing Returns to Action With Competitive NYC Area Regattas
Colonials to Compete at Nevins Trophy and Maritime Fall Open
Sept. 19, 2013
WASHINGTON - GW sailing will head to the New York City metro area for its second weekend of regattas at the 64th Nevins Trophy Intersectional in Kings Point, N.Y., and Maritime Fall Open in Throggs Neck, N.Y.
The Nevins Trophy is a new addition to the second-year varsity program's schedule, and should provide a "good challenge" according to Head Coach John Pearce. "The Nevins will have many of the top teams in the country and lots of top sailors."
Among the 20 teams competing, 14 are ranked in the most recent Sailing World Coed College Rankings, with GW currently receiving votes and seeking a solid showing to make a push into the Top 20. Coach Pearce will send senior Kaitlin Denney, sophomores Maria Sinagra and Henry Young, and freshmen Colin Kennedy and Daniel DelBello to compete against the 20-boat fleet.
GW will also enter two teams into the Maritime Fall Open - a Colonials 1 team of sophomore Jay Spector and junior Matthew Ricci in A Division, and sophomore Hannah McNomee and senior Erin McCormack in B Division, and Colonials 2 team of junior Madeline Taggart and sophomore Michael Ince in A Division, and freshman Madison Oleson and senior Sloan Dickey in B Division.
The Maritime Fall Open fleet will consist of the host Privateers, Columbia, Cornell, Fordham, Hobart & William Smith, Kings Point, Maryland, Navy, Queen's (N.Y.), RPI, Stony Brook, Syracuse, Penn and Webb Institute.
GW is coming off an impressive debut weekend in which both DelBello and Kennedy earned qualification into next month's MAISA Laser Championships with second and sixth place finishes, respectively, at the MAISA Laser South in Annapolis, Md.
