College Sailing Announces 2014-15 All-American Team

Published on June 23rd, 2015

Newport, RI (June 23, 2015) – In an online awards show this evening, produced by Gary Jobson and Mitch Brindley with video footage from Gary Jobson and Chris Love Productions and still photography from Rob Migliaccio, the Inter-Collegiate Sailing Association (ICSA) announced the 2014-15 All-American Team.

The names of the 53 award winners will be added to the ICSA Hall of Fame display located in the Robert Crown Center at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Md. A committee of representatives from the seven conferences in the ICSA selects the ICSA All-American Team.

To select an All-American skipper, the committee evaluates a competitor based on their competitive record in inter-conference competition as well as conference and national championships. The committee analyzes how this record compares to fellow competitors, the quality of the competition the record was achieved in, the span of the record over the fall and spring seasons, results achieved with different crews, and how the record compares to previous All-American winners in past years.

For All-American crew selections, the committee uses criteria similar to skipper selection, but also considers: demonstrated leadership (may consider seniority), outstanding body mechanics and boat handling skills as well as proven ability to improve the results of the skipper(s) with whom he or she sails.

Here are the names of the 2014-15 All-American Team and special award winners.
