2012 College Sailing National Championship Semi-Finals set to begin

'2011 ICSA Semifinal National Championships'    Rob Migliaccio

This weekend, May 12 – 13, the U.S. Naval Academy will host the Intercollegiate Sailing Association’s (ICSA) National Championship Western and Eastern Semi-Finals at the Robert Crown Center. The Crown Center was dedicated in the spring of 1974 named in honor of the late Captain Robert Crown.

The Naval Academy is a premier college sailing venue with the capacity to host large events with two full fleets of 420s and FJs on the water at once to allow for a maximum amount of racing. Sailing takes place on the Severn River in front of the Crown Center.

More than 140 sailors will compete in the two-day event, with supporting sponsorship from Marlow and U.S. Sailing. The Semi-Finals kick off the highly anticipated ICSA Spring National Championship series of regattas, which begin at the end of the month.

The regatta is divided into two fleets, Eastern and Western, each comprised of a mix of the top 18 schools in the country, representative of the seven collegiate sailing conferences in the nation: New England, Mid-Atlantic, South Atlantic, Southeast, Midwest, Pacific Coast and Northwest. The top nine schools in each fleet will qualify for the Gill/ICSA Coed National Championship Finals, June 6 – 8, 2012 in Austin, Texas. The final team in each fleet to qualify will be awarded the U.S. Sailing GRIT Award.

Eighteen races are scheduled in A and B Divisions of each semi-final fleet. On Saturday the Eastern fleet will race in 420s and the Western in FJs. On Sunday the groups will switch boats. Windward/Leeward courses are planned for the racing with the possibility of trapezoid courses, says Ian Burman, head coach of the Navy Sailing Team. The teams will report at 9 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday with racing starting between 9:30 and 10 a.m.
