WASHINGTON -- The George Washington sailing team is set to race in a pair of regattas this weekend with the Kings Point Dinghy Open and the Susan Rogers ’75 Memorial Regatta at Cornell.

GW is coming off a successful weekend in which it won the South Fall Qualifier which it co-hosted with Georgetown, while sophomore Riley Legault qualified for the ICSA Women’s Singlehanded National Championship (Nov. 4-6) and freshman Adam DiDomizio qualified for the Carl Van Duyne Trophy (Oct. 8-9).

“The Kings Point Dinghy Open is a great MAISA event where we will see a lot of strong in-conference competition,” said interim head coach Catherine Shanahan. “We will have two teams racing this weekend so it will be a great chance for a lot of people to hit the water.”

Skippers set to sail in Kings Point are senior Colin Kennedy, junior Sam White and sophomores Wade Wagner and Derek Poon-Tip. Crews are juniors Belle Strachan, Shira Golub and Matt Homa, and sophomore Alexandra Fayer.

The Susan Rogers regatta is an interconference regatta with a field of 14 teams. Skippers for the event are freshman sophomores Sarah Alexander and Marie Line, and freshman Aitana Mendiguren. Crews are sophomore Emma Mendenhall and freshman Sarah Noyes.
