After 12 races, Boston College held a commanding 17-point lead. But in the first A Division race, that lead was wiped out as BC finished in the back of the pack. Suddenly, there was a battle royale. Georgetown, St. Mary's, Charleston, Roger Williams and Boston College all had a shot. Georgetown's Charlie Buckingham proved to be a tower of strength, scoring a first and two seconds in the final three races, while teammate Chris Behm had an 8-5-5 during the same stretch. Georgetown left the field behind, winning by an impressive 31 points. I found it fascinating that Georgetown won with a 6.6 average while Wisconsin ended up 18th with an 11.9 average. This gives you an indication of how tight this regatta was. Only a 5.3 boat average was the difference between first and last.
