St. Mary’s Team Race Recap

By Kelly Stannard

After a total of 96 races Georgetown came out on top for a second weekend in a row, winning a tie-breaker against Boston College at the St. Mary’s Team Race this past weekend. Rounding out the top four was Stanford in third and Hobart in fourth.

A number of volunteers and umpires helped to ensure smooth racing. PRO, Chris Gaffney who will also be running the show later this year at the ICSA/APS Team Race Nationals, led the crew.

Saturday's racing kept competitors and the race committee on their toes with breeze ranging from 5 to 15 knots and plenty of shifts. Sunday proved to be warmer giving way to lighter but more consistent breeze, and great team racing conditions. All ten teams sailed in both FJ’s and 420’s through two round robin’s before breaking into a final four championship round.
