Hoyas Win Navy Spring Intersectional
Apr 17th 2016, 17:11

Hoyas win Navy Spring Regatta


The Georgetown Sailing team continued their impressive Spring season with a last second win at the Navy Spring Regatta.


The regattas was sailed at the US Naval Academy in Annapolis, MD and featured some of the best teams in the country.  The Hoyas had to battle light winds and great teams from Charleston, Stanford and Navy to eek out a 2 point victory. 


The conditions on Saturday were very difficult to sail in.  The wind was NE 0-6mph and very shifty.  The wind was almost impossible to read so there was a bit of a luck factor on the first leg of the first 3 races.  Georgetown started out well in A div. with Nevin Snow and Meaghan Macrae staying consistently in the top 10.  In B div. Sean Golden and Isabelle Luzuriaga had trouble staying in the top group after the start and had a 17,3,19 in their first three races. 


After a short break racing resumed and the wind shifted slightly more to the East which made the racing conditions better.  Nevin and Meaghan continued to sail well finishing in the top 5 in each race and ended the day with a 25 point lead in A.  Sean and Isabelle sailed better in their last four races and at the end of the day the Hoyas sat only 2 points behind the Naval Academy for first overall.


Sunday saw light E winds again.  The Hoyas started out well with a 1 in A div and an 8 in B to put themselves in the lead.  For the next five races it became a two team regatta with Georgetown and the College of Charleston.  In A Nevin and Meaghan sailed well but the Charleston boat was a little better for the day which put pressure on Sean and Isabelle.  Going into the last race of the event Charleston held a 7 point lead over the Hoyas.  At the start of the last race Sean and Isabelle forced the Charleston boat over the starting line too early so they had to come back and restart the race.  In doing so Sean and Isabelle also had a bad start but quickly made their way through the fleet.  At the first mark Charleston was in 19th and the Hoyas in 9th but Charleston was sailing faster than the teams in the back of the pack and they started to make up points.  Sean and Isabelle sailed a great final leg to move into 4th and Charleston ended up 13th, which gave the Hoyas a 2-point victory. 


Overall top 5 of 19

1. Georgetown       142

2. Charleston         144

3. Navy                     160

4. Stanford              168

5. Old Dominion    180


A div. 1st w/ 51 points  Nevin Snow / Meaghan Macrae

B div.  7th w/ 91 points  Sean Golden / Isabelle Luzuriaga

#1 Ranked Hoyas continue winning ways!
Apr 11th 2016, 15:00

The #1 ranked Georgetown University Sailing Team continued its winning streak capturing the MAISA Team Race Championship this weekend at Old Dominion University.


The Hoyas coed sailing team has been on quite a winning streak with victories at all the major Interconference regattas this spring.  This weekend the Hoyas faced off against the 8 top teams in the MAISA Conference for the Team Race Championship. The regatta was sailed at Old Dominion University and the forecast called for extreme winds on Saturday.  When the teams arrived on Saturday AM they were greeted with sustained 30mph winds that increased throughout the day.  Teams waited for the winds to slow down but the regatta was called off until Sunday. 


Sunday the winds were 8-10mph and conditions were ideal for racing.  The Hoyas started off strong defeating Navy, Hobart and GW before a tough loss to St. Mary’s.  The Hoyas then worked out their issues and went on a 10-0 run to force a winner take all race with St. Mary’s.  The race started at 7PM and the Hoyas took control early and never gave up the lead.  The Hoyas are the 2016 MAISA Conference Team Race Champions and now move on to the National Championships for Team Racing in San Diego May 28-30.


Sailing for the Hoyas were:

Nevin Snow / Meaghan Macrae

Sean Golden / Isabelle Luzuriaga (12 races), MaryKate Mezzetti (2 races)

AJ Reiter / Bettina Redway


Overall Records

1.     Georgetown         14-1

2.     St. Mary’s              13-2

3.     Old Dominion      10-4

4.     Navy                          8-6

5.     SUNY Maritime     4-10

6.     Hobart                       3-11

7.     Cornell                      3-11

8.     George Washington   2-12


The win at the Conference Championship capped a tremendous regular season which saw the Hoyas win at every major college regatta.  Their overall race record for the season is 115-21 which is the best ever for a Georgetown team.  


The Hoyas coed team is currently ranked #1 in the Sailing World and Sail1Design.com college polls. 


The focus of the team now switches to Women’s and Coed Fleet Racing where the Hoyas have Conference Championships April 23-24 and April 30-May 1.  The Hoyas womens team is currently ranked #4 in the country.

#1 Ranked Hoyas win the War Memorial for 5th Year in a row
Nov 2nd 2015, 11:26


Hoyas win MAISA Coed Conference Championship



The #1 Ranked Georgetown University Coed Sailing Team won the War Memorial Regatta for the MAISA Coed Conference Championship this past weekend in Ithaca, NY.  The regatta, hosted by Cornell University, was sailed on Lake Cayuga is some of the most challenging conditions possible.  Saturday saw very light winds with huge differences in direction and velocity across the race course.  This made it very hard on the sailors to remain consistent.  Both A and B division for the Hoyas sailed well but each had a double digit finish which left the team in 3rd place overall behind St. Mary’s College and Hobart/ William Smith.  Sunday was an entirely different regatta.  The wind was much stronger but equally as shifty which again made consistency elusive.  In A division Nevin Snow and Meaghan Macrae did their best to stay on the favored side of the course each race and while they didn’t win a lot of races they were able to win their division by 15 points.  This put the pressure on the B division tandem of Sean Golden and Isabelle Luzuriaga.  Going into the last two races the Hoyas had built a 11 point lead over St. Mary’s College.  The first race of the set saw the wind shift hard to the right and pick up to about 15-20mph.  Sean and Isabelle Hung on for a 8th place finish but St. Mary’s was able to pick up points and come with in 6 of the lead.  As the wind increased Senior Jack Welty subbed in for Isabelle.  The wind in the last race gusted as high as 30mph with large windshifts coming over the hills around the lake.  Sean and Jack started ahead of St. Mary’s and covered them well upwind rounding the first mark about 4 places ahead.  St. Mary’s closed the gap on the run leg but Sean and Jack maintained control upwind.  As they were covering St. Mary’s on the final beat to windward a large shift nearly capsized the Hoyas to windward.  With the boat full of water and the wind and the waves increasing the Hoyas still managed to stay ahead of St. Mary’s going around the last mark.  On the final run to the finish as Jack was bailing water the St. Mary’s boat was able to surf the waves and plane ahead of the Hoyas and a pack of boats right at the finish.  Luckily the Hoyas were able to hold on to 11th place in the race and secure a 1 point victory. 


This is the fifth year in a row that the Hoyas have won the War Memorial.  The War Memorial Regatta has been in existence since 1964 and no team other than the Hoyas has ever won the event more than three years in a row. 


The Hoyas qualified for the Coed Atlantic Coast Championships in two weeks at Old Dominion University.

The Georgetown Women’s Sailing team had their first interconference event of the season and came out with a hard fought win. 


Sailing on the Severn River the Hoyas battled great competition as well as shifty NE Winds.  The A div duo of Seniors MaryKate Mezzetti and Bettina Redway sailed a brilliant regatta en route to winning their division.  The duo never finished out of the top ten and had only two races out of the top 5.  A tremendous performance.  In B division Rose and Isabelle started off slowly but gradually found their speed and confidence and ended up winning the last race which helped clinch the win.  In C division Haddon and Lola combined for a 2nd place finish.  Haddon won the first two races and Lola never finished worse than 4th. 



The Hoyas travel to Yale this weekend for the Yale Women’s Interconference Regatta. 




MAISA Men’s Singlehanded Championship

Overall (Top 4 move on to the National Championship)

1.     Nevin Snow

5. Greg Martinez

7. Jack Marshall

17. Clay Broussard



Nevin Snow won the MAISA Men’s Singlehanded Championship for the second year in a row.  The regatta was very competitive top to bottom and finding consistency was hard for everyone.  Nevin had only one race out of the top 10 and that was the main reason why he won the event by 24 points.  Greg came so close once again but finished 2 points shy of fouth place in a heartbreaking last race.  Greg sailed well and with just 3 races remaining was in 2nd overall but a string of double digit finishes at the end cost him an automatic qualifying spot at the National Championships.  Jack Marshall was also in the hunt to make nationals but he too finished with some double digit races.  Clay too had his ups and down and was only 16 points out of the top 10 by the end of the event.




Tom Curtis Regatta @ Georgetown

Combined divisions

1st.  AJ Reiter / Liz Mullarney (6 races) , Andy Reiter / Claire Mohun  (8 Races)

4th Jack Gerli / Rebecca Fung  (5 races) Noah Kelleher/ Albert Krause  (5 Races), Curtis Crooke / Grace Fenton (4 Races)



Overall  (top 3 of 9)

1.     Georgetown

2.     George Washington

3.     Navy



The Hoyas hosted their first event of the season this past weekend.   The Tom Curtis Memorial Regatta is named in honor of hall of famer Tom Curtis ’68.  The Hoyas made it a priority to win their home event this season and they came out with a fairly easy win.  In this combined division event the Reiter brothers and crews Liz Mullarney and Claire Mohun dominated the competition with 9 1sts, 4 2nds and a 4th place finish in 14 races.  The other division saw Jack Gerli and Rebecca
Fung be equally impressive with 2 1sts, 2 2nds and a 3rd place finish in 5 races.  Noah and Albert and Curtis and Grace came in to get experience and each improved a tremendous amount and helped the Hoyas to the overall win. 




This weekend the Hoyas will be in two events

17th Annual GUST Alumni Regatta!!!!!

Hoyas win their First Three Regattas!
Sep 15th 2015, 13:32

The Georgetown University Sailing Team started their 2015-16 season with a bang winning all three of their events. 


The results are as follows:



Women’s Laser Radial Regatta @ Navy

Overall out of 18

1.     Haddon Hughes ‘19

2.     Lola Bushnell ‘18

7.    Rose Edwards  ‘18

11.  MaryKate Mezzetti ‘16



The Georgetown Women’s team started off their season at the Navy Laser Radial Regatta which is a tune-up for the Conference Singlehanded Championship.  Right from the start of the event it was easy to see that Georgetown Freshman Haddon Hughes and Sophomore Lola Bushnell were the best two laser sailors at the event.  Haddon started off by winning the first five races in a row while Lola had four 2nds and a 4th.  The second day of the regatta saw Lola start out with a 1,1 and Haddon a 2,2 in the first two races.  In the end Haddon remained more consistent and won the 13 race event with 27 points.  Lola finished 2nd with 45 points.  Rose and MaryKate both improved dramatically over the course of the event. 



Men’s Laser Regatta @ Navy

Overall out of 20

1.     Greg Martinez ‘18

7.  Jack Marshall ’18

13. Clay Broussard ‘18


The Men’s Laser Regatta at Navy is the first round of qualifying for the Conference Singlehanded Championship in October.  This is typically a very good regatta and this year didn’t disappoint.  2013 College National Champion Greg Martinez returned to the water after some time off and showed he is still as talented as ever.  Greg sailed consistently well over the 13 race event en route to a 12 point win.  Jack and Clay each had one good day and one day of struggles over the 2 day event.  Jack was a little slow in the windier conditions on Saturday but made up a lot of points on Sunday in the shiftier winds and just missed out on qualifying by 4 points.  Clay sailed quite well on Saturday but struggled in the shifty weather.  Both Clay and Jack will try to qualify again at our next singlehanded even September 26-27 in New York. 



Riley Cup @ Old Dominion

Georgetown Team Gray

1st with 83 points

A div. 2nd  Roger Dorr ’18 / Bettina Redway ‘16

B div. 1st  Campbell D’Eliscu ’19 / Meaghan Macrae ‘18



Georgetown Team Blue

2nd with 108 points

A div. 1st AJ Reiter ‘17 / Rebecca Fung ‘19

B div. 4th Andy Reiter ’19 / Haley Shea ‘19


Overall (Top 4 of 17)

1.     Georgetown Blue                              83

2.     Georgetown Gray                           108

3.     St. Mary’s                                     138

4.     Old Dominion                         142


The Riley Cup is the first doublehanded event of the year and the Hoyas typically send their top new sailors to see how they fair in collegiate competition.  If this regatta is any indication of things to come then the Hoyas are looking good.  Georgetown sent two teams to the event and after 14 races on Saturday both teams were tied for 1st well ahead of the competition.  The conditions at Old Dominion were great both days with winds ranging between 10-20 mph.  Sunday saw the windiest and waviest conditions and that is where the Hoyas Blue team really excelled.  In B division Freshman Campbell D’Eliscu and sophomore Meaghan Macrae won the last four race in a row to win the division by 23 points.  Junior AJ Reiter and freshman Rebecca Fung won A division for the Gray team followed closely by teammates Roger Dorr and Bettina Redway in 2nd. 



The Hoyas have one event this week followed by two regattas this weekend. 


On Tuesday Sept 15 the Hoyas will join forces with GW sailing to represent the US in the Performace Sailcraft trophy vs. the British Collegiate All-Star team.  The event is a 3 on 3 laser team race.  Starting for the US team will be Greg Martinez. 



This weekend the Hoyas will be sailing at the Nevins Trophy and New York Maritime Open in New York.

Hoyas Win America Trophy - Sweep Spring Conference Championships
May 4th 2015, 15:57


Hoyas Win America Trophy – Snow Named Conference Sailor of the Year


The Georgetown University Coed Sailing Team finished its regular by winning the MAISA Conference Championship – The America Trophy.


The America Trophy featured the top 18 teams in the Conference competing at Old Dominion University.  The regatta was sailed in a very light NE wind which proved to be very challenging for most teams.  The light winds meant that only 12 of the scheduled 36 races were completed.  With such a small number of races the teams that were able to stay consistent and avoid double digit finishes were the ones that excelled.  The Hoyas plan was to be slightly conservative and avoid major risks.  The plan worked well as both A and B division remained consistently in the top 5.  In A division Nevin Snow and Katia DaSilva sailed quite well with only one race out of the top 6.  That was good enough for 2nd in A.  A division actually sailed 8 races but B division only completed six so the final two A races didn’t count in the final results.  Had they counted Nevin and Katia would have won A division by a comfortable margin.  In B division Alex Post and Bettina Redway dominated the competition finishing out of the top four only once.  Alex and Bettina were able to stay out of trouble and use their superior boatspeed to stay ahead when they found themselves in the lead. 


Overall Results

1.     Georgetown               48

2.     Old Dominion                        63      

3.     NY Maritime              74

4.     St. Mary’s College      80

5.     Kings Point                84

6.     Naval Academy          89

7.     Hobart and William Smith   106


This marks the 8th time in the last 9 years that the Hoyas have won the America Trophy a record that is unequaled in the 76 year history of the regatta. 



At the conclusion of the regatta the Mid Atlantic Sailing Conference Announced their end of the year awards.
