Sail-World.com : ICSA All-American Team and College Sailor of the Year announced

ICSA All-American Team and College Sailor of the Year announced

At the final Nationals banquet in Cascade Locks, OR after the last day of racing for the Gill/ICSA Dinghy National Championship the continuation of announcing the ICSA All-American Team, the Everett B. Morris Trophy for the College Sailor of the Year, the Robert H. Hobbs Sportsmanship Award, the James Rousmaniere Award for Student Leadership and the Leonard M. Fowle Trophy for the Best Overall Team were presented.

These are all high honors and a highlight of the collegiate sailing year. All of these names will be added to the ICSA Hall of Fame display located in the Robert Crown Sailing Center at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland.

The ICSA All-America Team is selected by a committee of coaches who represent the seven conferences in the ICSA. For selecting the All-Americans the committee evaluates a competitor based on their competitive record in District and North American Championships. Beyond that 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 previous years. For All-American crew selections the committee uses criteria similar to skipper selection, but additionally considers: demonstrated leadership (may consider seniority), outstanding body mechanics and boat handling skills as well as proven ability to improve of 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 five finalists for the prestigious award: Charlie Buckingham ’11 Georgetown University, Taylor Canfield ’11 Boston College, Michael Menninger ’11 St. Mary’s College of Maryland, Tyler Sinks ’11 Boston College and Cy Thompson ’11 Roger Williams University. All of these sailors had an outstanding competitive record and all competed at the highest level in the 2011 Collegiate National Championship events.

The winner, calculated by the numbers, who was also the winner of A-division at the 2011 Gill/ICSA Dinghy National Championship and this fall won the Laser Performance/ICSA Men’s Singlehanded National Championship, was Georgetown senior Charlie Buckingham. This is the second time Buckingham has won the award in his collegiate sailing career. He previously won the honor in 2009 and he has also been a collegiate All-American four times (2011, 2010, 2009, 2008) in his career.

Buckingham is from Newport Beach, California and grew up sailing at Newport Harbor Yacht Club and on the Newport Harbor High School Sailing Team. He plans to return to Newport Harbor and use this as his home base as he pursues an Olympic Campaign. He will hope to represent the U.S. in the 2016 Summer Olympics. 'It felt good to win this honor, it was really special because it is my senior year. It was a good way to cap off my four years,' Buckingham explains. 'I think this year I had better results than I did my sophomore year—I never have the award in mind, but with good results comes the award. I just focused on sailing well all year,' Buckingham states modestly.

Buckingham has a busy summer sailing schedule, currently he is on his way to Weymouth, England for the Skandia Sail For Gold regatta, he will also sail Laser North Americans, Laser U.S. Nationals and he will represent Georgetown University and College Sailing at the World University Games this summer. Buckingham so far plans to make sailing his full-time job, as most Olympic campaigns are.

The winner of the Leonard M. Fowle Trophy for best overall collegiate team was Boston College. The Fowle trophy is determined by the team with the most Fowle points that are compiled results of the Women's Singlehanded, Men's Singlehanded, ICSA Match Racing, Women's Dinghy, Team Racing, and Coed Dinghy North American Championships.

In the fall Boston College finished second in the 2010-2011 Laser Performance/ICSA Women’s Singlehanded Championship, first in the ICSA Match Racing Championship, and in the spring they just finished eleventh in the Sperry Top-Sider/ICSA Women’s National Championship, second in the APS/ICSA Team Race National Championship and finally first in the Gill/ICSA Coed Dinghy National Championship. This is the third time Boston College has achieved this honor recently; they won it in 2010 and 2008.

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 US SAILING (1992-1994), and former chair of the US SAILING Olympic Committee. This year’s winner was Robert Vann (Tampa, FL.), a graduating senior from the U.S. Naval Academy. Vann has been named an ICSA Honorable Mention All-American three times (2009, 2010, 2011) and has shown outstanding sportsmanship in his collegiate sailing career.

The James Rousmaniere Award for Student Leadership was awarded to Georgetown’s graduating senior Michael Campbell. This honor is awarded annually to an undergraduate who has provided outstanding leadership to his or her team or district. Campbell is from San Diego, California and has been known to educate others about sailing and dedicate himself to the betterment of others. He has been a leader on his team and in his district contributing to improving college sailing as a whole.

The Women’s All-Americans were announced earlier at the Sperry Top-Sider/ICSA Women’s Dinghy National Championship banquet as well as the Quantum Women’s Sailor of the Year. The finalists for this award were Annie Haeger, a junior from Boston College and Megan Magill, a senior from St. Mary’s College of Maryland. Although both women had an outstanding year of college sailing, Haeger was named the winner. See below for full results.
