posted Nov 4, 2015, 10:00 AM by Sailing Officers

The Villanova sailing team headed up to Cornell this weekend to compete in the War Memorial Regatta. The top 8 teams would move on to the ACCs and the next seven to the ACTs. Everyone knew the regatta would be a difficult one, racing against the best teams in our division. However, our team remained optimistic.
                  Saturday featured freezing temperatures and extremely light air - a tough combination. A division was sailed by freshman Trevor Keorwer and crew Liz Day. The duo held strong through the many abandonments and delays, ending the day with a 16th, 12th, 18th and an impressive 10th. B division pair Pete McMillian and Austin Tipp also fared well, coming off the water with a 10th, 17th and 14th. The team finished off the day only 6 points away from qualifying!
                  Sunday held higher winds and warmer temperatures – much more ideal conditions. B division duo McMillan and Tipp started off the day with a 14th. Highlights for the day included a third from Koerwer and solid finishes by Bailey Cornog and Pete McMillan. At the end of the day, the Villanova team finished only 11 points away from qualifying. Our final regatta of the season is Club Champs next weekend hosted by our team and UPenn.
