College Sailing Chalk Talk: Season 10, Episode 3

Published on April 10th, 2014

Chris Love provides this report on the Inter-Collegiate Sailing Association (ICSA) 2013-2014 season along with his weekly Chalk Talk video:

(April 10, 2014) – This week in college sailing we saw the end of the team racing season. All the East Coast conferences, plus the Northwest, held their team race conference championships, qualifying the first eleven out of sixteen teams for team race nationals.

The University of Washington was the lone qualifier out of NWICSA; College of Charleston and University of South Florida both punched their tickets from SAISA despite only three teams competing; St. Mary’s, who will host team race nationals, won in MAISA, followed by Georgetown, Navy and Old Dominion; and Roger Williams beat last year’s national champions from Yale in a tiebreaker for the NEISA championship, followed by Boston College and Tufts, who also qualified.

Meanwhile, in PCCSC and SEISA, the women were fighting it out for their own titles. Texas A&M Galveston won the Southeastern Championship and will be joined by Texas A&M (the one with the football team) at nationals. On the Pacific Coast, Stanford, Hawaii and UC Santa Barbara took the podium and a spot at the Naval Academy for women’s nationals. In other women’s sailing news, Yale won the Emily Wick Trophy at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy.

This upcoming weekend is the first of two coed fleet racing weekends before another round of conference championships. Navy will host the Trux in 420’s, FJ’s, Lasers, and Radials, while Connecticut College hosts the three-division Thompson Trophy. Women’s competition continues at Boston University with the President’s Trophy and the schools in the Northwest will head to The Gorge for the Rainier Cup.
