Georgetown sailing team wins World University Championships

The stellar Georgetown sailing squad has done it again. On Saturday, a foursome consisting of Hoyas Nevin SnowAJ ReiterAlex Post, and Katia DaSilva won the six-day championship after besting the defending champs from Australia.

The World Championships were hosted on Lake Ledro in Trentino, Italy, and Georgetown won the right to represent the United States by winning Nationals last November.

Georgetown’s sailing team, in terms of championship success, puts men’s basketball to shame. The sailing Hoyas have won Nationals three times in the past 10 years and placed five other times. This World Championships title puts them even further over the top.
