Sail-World.com : ICSA Sailors compete in the 2011 World Univeristy Games in China

ICSA Sailors compete in the 2011 World Univeristy Games in China

'ICSA logo lo-res'   
Nine ICSA Sailors recently returned from competing in the 2011 World University Games in Shenzhen, China. They were part of a USA delegation of over 400 that competed in 17 sports.

Below is a report from team leader Perry Emsiek.


Being in China for the World University Games was an experience of a lifetime and completely unforgettable. The production that was put on by the city of Shenzhen was impressive and unreal. We are all eternally grateful to have taken part in the World University Games where we were able to meet so many great people from around the world. Although we are happy to be back home, we will surely miss the Universiade Village and its surroundings.

On the team race course, there were American teams sailing in both the 470s and the Radials. The 2v2 470 team race team of Zeke Horowitz, Alyssa Aitken, Scott Furnary, and Perry Emsiek sailed their way to the finals with
a record of 9-1. They fell to the Russians in the last race of the finals and received the silver medal. The 3v3 Radial team race team consisted of Elizabeth Barry, Colin Smith, and Fred Strammer. This team also had an
extremely successful regatta and triumphed by bring home the gold.

On the fleet racing side, Charlie Buckingham and Cameron Cullman represented the USA in the Laser Standard class. After starting the regatta near the bottom half of the fleet, both sailors worked hard to climb up the ranks.
By the end of the regatta, Charlie and Cam competed in the medal race to finish the regatta in the top ten. Charlie placed sixth and Cam placed eighth, respectively.

Congratulations to the USA sailors and their successes in China!
