College Sailing 2019-20 All America Team

Published on June 12th, 2020

Following the cancellation of the spring season, the Intercollegiate Sailing Association (ICSA) has released the 2019-20 All America Team, with the names of the winners to be added to the ICSA Hall of Fame displayed at the Robert Crown Center at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, MD.

A committee of representatives from ICSA conferences selects the ICSA All America Team. This year’s committee is: MAISA: Ian Burman (chair), Brian Clancy; MCSA: Geoff Pedrick; NEISA: David Thompson, Bill Healy; PCCSC: Brian Swingly; SAISA: Ward Cromwell; SEISA: Charles Higgins.

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, and results achieved competing with different crews, the span of the record over the fall and spring seasons, and how the record compares to previous All American winners.

Evaluating using these criterion presented a little challenge this year for the committee due to the spring sailing season cut short by COVID-19.

“The hardest thing about doing the selections this year was that it was very tough to compare to sailors selected in past years since the competitive records were incomplete this year,” said Burman. “The team racing season had just begun and it was challenging to figure out how that would play in. We really tried to stick to the records from this year alone and not look at what had happened in previous seasons or project what we thought was likely to happen if the spring had completed.”

The committee selected 12 Women All American skippers, seven Women Honorable Mentions, 13 Coed All-American skippers, and 11 Coed Honorable Mentions.

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.

The committee selected 20 All American Crews and 10 Honorable Mentions.
