Friday night, June 8, was the final ICSA awards banquet in Austin, Texas after the last day of racing for the ICSA/Gill Coed Dinghy National Championship. The Coed and Crew ICSA All-Americans, Everett B. Morris Trophy for the College Sailor of the Year, Robert H. Hobbs Sportsmanship Award and the Leonard M. Fowle Trophy for the Best Overall Team were presented.

The names of the 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 coaches who represent the seven conferences in the ICSA selects the ICSA All-America Team. For selecting the All-Americans 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.

The Everett B. Morris Trophy is awarded annually to the College Sailor of the Year for outstanding performance at the highest level of sailing in the collegiate year. The trophy is named in memory of a distinguished journalist who spent more than 30 years, as a yachting writer and editor. This year there were four finalists for the prestigious award: Alec Anderson, Roger Williams ’13; Chris Barnard, Georgetown University ’13; Sam Blouin, Hobart and William Smith Colleges ’12; and Mac Mace, College of Charleston ’12.

The winner, calculated by the numbers, who is also the A-division and an overall winner of the ICSA/Gill Coed Dinghy National Championship is Chris Barnard. Barnard’s teammate Sydney Bolger also won the Quantum Female Sailor of the Year award just a few days ago. Previous winners of this award include fellow Hoya Charlie Buckingham, who achieved the honor twice (2009, 2011) and is an U.S. Olympic hopeful.

Barnard has been named an ICSA Coed Honorable Mention All-American (2010) and a Coed All-American (2012). He placed in the top three in A-division at most of the regattas he sailed over the 2011-2012 season for Georgetown and has been named to the 2012 U.S. Sailing Development Team to train for the Olympics in the Laser class.

'I am extremely honored and proud to win this award,' Barnard says. It is an award he knew he would like to win, but he says he first focused on winning Nationals.

Barnard started sailing at Newport Harbor Yacht Club in Newport Beach, Calif. at the age of eight. He also sailed on the Newport Harbor High School Sailing Team. He credits his parents and grandparents for introducing him to sailing at a young age. He says he comes from a sailing family and frequently went on family cruising trips. His family members are also avid racers.

Barnard is looking forward to competing in his Laser this summer both in Europe and in the U.S. After college he will pursue an Olympic campaign in the Laser, but next year he is excited about more college sailing and defending a national title. He will graduate from Georgetown’s business program next spring with a degree in marketing.

The winner of the Leonard M. Fowle Trophy for best overall collegiate team is the College of Charleston. The team with the most Fowle points, which are compiled results of the ICSA Women’s Singlehanded, Men’s Singlehanded, Match Racing, Women’s Dinghy, Team Racing, and Coed Dinghy National Championships, determines the Fowle trophy. Charleston had a successful competitive year including winning the 2012 ICSA/APS Team Race National Championship.


The Robert H. Hobbs Sportsmanship Award is awarded annually to the Sportsman of the Year. The trophy honors Robert Hobbs (MIT '64), past Executive Vice President of ICSA, past President of U.S. Sailing (1992-1994), and former chair of the U.S. Sailing Olympic Committee. This year’s winner is Sam Williams (Summit, N.J.), a graduating senior from Dartmouth College, who has shown outstanding sportsmanship during his collegiate sailing career.

The Women’s All-Americans were announced earlier at the Sperry Top-Sider/ICSA Women’s National Championship banquet as well as the Quantum Female Sailor of the Year. The finalists for this award were Sydney Bolger a senior from Georgetown University and Anne Haeger, a senior from Boston College. Although both women had an outstanding year of college sailing, Bolger won the honor this year.
