Peschiera and Reineke win ICSA Singlehanded Championships, presented by Laser Performance
November 08, 2017

#2 College of Charleston’s senior and ICSA College Sailor of the Year frontrunner, Stefano Peschiera won the Laser Performance Men's Singlehanded Nationals in impressive fashion. A regatta, stacked with talent, showcased three previous champions, including Peschiera himself, who won the event as a freshman in 2014. Posting a scoreline with one race outside the top-7 positions, Peschiera walked away from the competition regardless of its strength. Mr. Peschiera finished with 50 points after 12 races, including 5 races inside the top-3. With only the Atlantic Coast Championship left to sail, Peschiera has put together a compelling campaign, winning his conference championship, A-Division at the Danmark Trophy and now the Singlehanded Nationals.

The Fall Nationals Championships are just around the corner, and competition is heating up around the country. #4 Hobart and William Smith won the War Memorial regatta (MAISA), #1 Yale won the Victoria Coffee Urn Trophy (NEISA), #10 MIT won the Professor Schell Trophy (NEISA) and #3 Charleston won the SAISA Fall Coed regatta.


#13 Dartmouth College won the St. Mary's Fall Interconference with impressive performances in both divisions. Sailed at St. Mary’s College of Maryland, the event marked MAISA’s second major intersectional as the fall season is now in full swing. Many of the nation’s top teams were in attendance and the fleets were mostly filled with college sailing veterans. Dartmouth was one such team, sporting a tandem in A and B-Divisions that may be the Big Green’s top squad.

“The racing was tricky, with pressure filling from the edges and many of the common moves toward consolidating and centering up not as beneficial as normal,” said Dartmouth’s head coach, Justin Assad. “Our team was able to start cleanly most of the time, and focused on being patient and balanced sailing the long tack with finding the next pressure.”

Hurricane Irma has devastated the tropical communities of Florida and the island offshore, especially the Virgin Islands, home to many past, present and future college sailors. The presence of such sailors does not simply exist as a large portion of our tight-knit college sailing community, but represents the strength of the organization. With Hurricane Maria looming, our island friends need our thoughts and support.

While the Intercollegiate Sailing Association (ICSA) regular season has kicked off, the Stu Nelson Interconference regatta is the first major women’s Interconference of the Fall Season. Sailed on the Thames River, the banks of Connecticut College, the venue can be extremely challenging anytime the breeze clicks away from straight up and down. Being the first big regatta of the women’s season, many of the great women in college were elsewhere. However, results from this event helps set the scene for what we can expect on the women’s sailing front this season in college sailing.

After a summer of rest, coaching gigs and internships, sailors return to their respective schools and look to the water, the 2017 ICSA Fall Season is upon us. With regattas starting in early September and ending in mid-November, spanning from coast to coast, the Intercollegiate Sailing Association (ICSA) will sanction hundreds of regattas just this fall alone.

With so many quality regattas slated for the upcoming weeks, including singlehanded and match racing national championships, this Fall will prove to be an exciting one. All three fall national championships will be held in SAISA. The ICSA Match Racing National Championship will be held at the College of Charleston, in South Carolina, host of last spring’s championships. The Men’s and Women’s Singlehanded Nationals will take place in St. Petersburg, Florida. These three national championships help set the tone for the season, coupled with a women’s and coed fleet racing season which culminates in the Coed and Women’s Atlantic Coast Championships, held at SUNY Maritime College in New York and Connecticut College in Connecticut College respectively.
