    Newport Harbor ends Point Loma's reign

    LONG BEACH, Calif.  

    While Georgetown University coasted to a comfortable defense of its College championship in the 30th Rose Bowl Regatta Sunday, Newport Harbor High School kept its foot on the gas to close Point Loma's eight-year reign in the High School Gold class.

    The Sailors' (that's their appropriate nickname) B team of Campbell D'Eliscu and Madeline Bubb matched the efforts of the A team's Sean Segerblom and Briggs D'Eliscu (Campbell's kid brother) in winning the first and last of their eight races over two days, and also notched two firsts and a second as NHHS swept the Gold A and B groups.

    Cathedral Catholic of San Diego repeated as winner of the High School Silver class.

    Thirty college teams coast to coast and 62 Gold and Silver high schools all sailed 13-foot, 3-inch two-person CFJ dinghies off the beach at the Belmont Veterans Memorial Pier in the major youth sailing event hosted by the United States Sailing Center and Pacific Coast Sailing Foundation.

    D'Eliscu and Bubb made the most of it with a first and second in the last three races, wrapped around an 11th. A bold last-second burst at the line launched their first place, but when they tried to match it the next time . . .

    "We were over early," D'Eliscu said.

    But by the end of the day it didn't matter. Bold moves often pay off.   

    "It was a big thing to win this at the start of the year," D'Eliscu said, "especially among some amazing people." 

    Those included A.J. Reiter, skipper of Georgetown's B boat with Isabelle Luzuriaga as crew. Like many of the competitors,  Reiter and Luzuriaga were Californians racing for Eastern schools.

    Unlike most Easterners, "We're very lucky to sail all year," Reiter said.

    The weekend conditions weren't entirely easy as the teams urged limited knots of speed out of their boats inSaturday's gentle breeze, and Sunday started worse with 2-4 knots from downtown Long Beach to the northwest before fading completely in early afternoon.

    That was a good sign, because soon a steady 8 to 9 knots filled in from the locally reliable southwest to pick up the pace. 

    Georgetown thus remained a close second in the national college standings to Yale, which didn't venture West this time, and added the trophy to the World University Championships it won in Italy last summer.  

     

    Top finishers

    College: 1. Georgetown University, 52 points; 2. U.S. Coast Guard Academy, 89; 3. Fordham U., 98.

    High school Gold: 1. Newport Harbor, 61; 2. Corona del Mar 105; 32. Point Loma, 107.  

    High school Silver: 1.  Cathedral Catholic, 79; 2. Windward School, 95; 3. The Bishop's School, 101.

    Sunny but Snow-y for Georgetown

    LONG BEACH, Calif.  

    Once the 30th Rose Bowl Regatta got underway inSaturday's light, chilly breeze, "It went well," Nevin Snow said.

    From Snow's standpoint, that was the understatement of the day. 

    The skipper and crew Isabelle Luzuriaza of the Washington D.C. school's A boat won all four of their races in the College A class---a big jump toward defending the championship they won for Georgetown University last year.

    The Hoyas' B boat also led its class with two wins in four races. Coincidentally, the only rival within reach of overtaking them in Sunday's final rounds is last year's runnerup, the U.S. Coast Guard Academy team from Mystic, Conn., 18 points back, 16 to 34.

    There are 30 college teams coast to coast and 62 Gold and Silver high schools, all sailing the 13-foot, 3-inch CFJ dinghies off the beach around the Belmont Veterans Memorial Pier in the major youth sailing event hosted by the United States Sailing Center and Pacific Coast Sailing Foundation. 

    There is seating for spectators on the pier at no charge, with food, refreshments and comfort stations available. Racing will start at 11 a.m. Sunday, conditions permitting. 

    Conditions did not permit that Saturday as flags hung limply under bright sunny skies until a modest southwesterly breeze filled in shortly after noon.

    The temperature didn't get past the low 60s, but that was OK with Avery Fanning of the Coast Guard team. 

    "I came from minus-2 [degrees] in Cleveland," she said.

    Snow is a San Diego native whose team won the World University Championships in Italy last summer and currently stands a close second to Yale---an absentee here---in the national rankings.

    "We were kind of focused on going fast," he said, "[because] the wind wasn't very shifty . . . kind of typical Long Beach for this time of year."

    Meanwhile, Newport Harbor High School continued its dominance of this season's Pacific Coast Interscholastic Association competition with a first-day's lead of 19 points over Corona del Mar (35). Point Loma is third with 47 points and will need a mighty comeback to win its ninth consecutive Rose Bowl Gold fleet title.

    San Diego's Bishop O'Dowd leads the Silver fleet with 31 points, seven ahead of The Bishop's School.

     

    The leaders 

    College: 1. Georgetown University, 16 points; 2. U.S. Coast Guard Academy, 34; 3. Boston College, 51.

    High school Gold: 1. Newport Harbor, 19; 2. Corona del Mar 35; 32. Point Loma, 47.

    High school Silver: 1. Bishop O'Dowd, 31; 2. The Bishop's School, 38; 3. Cathedral Catholic, 40.

    Pre-Regatta Press Release: Fair weather due for Rose Bowl Regatta

    LONG BEACH, Calif.  

    Some chill, rain and prospects of the coldest Rose Parade in its 125 years on New Year's Day haven't heralded fair sailing in midweek, but forecasts call for a sunny shirtsleeve weekend for the nation's best young sailors for the 30th Rose Bowl Regatta at Long Beach this weekend. 

    Some of the crews from 30 college teams coast to coast and 62 high schools from throughout California who left snow and ice behind may even ask, "This is winter?"  

    Temperatures should be up to 65 Fahrenheit Saturday and 70 Sunday, under orders from the host United States Sailing Center and Pacific Coast Sailing Foundation.

    Led by defending champion Georgetown University of Washington D.C., currently ranked second nationally, and San Diego's Point Loma High School, all will sail two-person 13-foot, 3-inch CFJ dinghies off the beach at the Belmont Veterans Memorial Pier. 

    Top-ranked Yale isn't coming, but the next five---Georgetown, Boston College, Navy, College of Charleston and Fordham---will be racing.

    There will be seating for spectators on the pier at no charge, with food, refreshments and comfort stations available. Racing will start at 11 a.m. each day, conditions permitting.

    Georgetown, led by sophomore skipper Nevin Snow, finished a solid 15 points ahead of the runnerup U.S. Coast Guard Academy last year. The San Diego native estimated that although most of the teams were from outside the state, 70 per cent of the sailors were Californians.

    One exception was his crew for the final rounds: Liz Mulvaney, a New York City resident who had never seen the West Coast. But she weighed only 125 pounds, which made her and other girls valuable crew in the light winds.

    Later last summer Snow and three other Georgetown sailors represented the U.S. at the World University Championships in Italy, defeating defending champion Australia in the finals for first place.

    Point Loma, meanwhile, hardly missed a beat in seizing its eighth consecutive High School Gold fleet championship in the Rose Bowl Regatta.

    But this weekend the Pointers may face a stronger task against Newport Harbor, which has won the first two of six events of the PCISA series, followed by Point Loma with a third and second and Long Beach Wilson High School with a second and fourth.
