Fanning, Turley, Barnes, Rohde, and Morin Earn All-America Honors

SAN DIEGO, CALIF. (June 30, 2016) – The Intercollegiate Sailing Association (ICSA) recently announced the 2015-16 All-America Team. Coast Guard had an astonishing five members named to the team: Avery Fanning, Robert Turley, Nikole Barnes, Dana Rohde, and Anna Morin. The names of the winners will be added to the ICSA Hall of Fame display located in the Robert Crown Center at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Md.

To select an All-American skipper, the committee evaluates a competitor based on their competitive record in inter-conference competition as well as conference and national championships. The committee analyzes how this record compares to fellow competitors, the quality of the competition the record was achieved in, and results achieved competing with different crews, the span of the record over the fall and spring seasons, and how the record compares to previous All-American winners in past years.
For All-American crew selections, the committee uses criteria similar to skipper selection, but also considers: demonstrated leadership (may consider seniority), outstanding body mechanics and boat handling skills as well as proven ability to improve the results of the skipper(s) with whom he or she sails.
Seniors Avery Fanning and Robert Turley were named named a Coed All-American Skipper and Coed All-American Crew, respectively, for the second time. Fanning and Turley had an impressive performance during the course of the 2015-2016 season, never finishing outside of the top-5 in A-Division at the eleven interconference or championship events that they sailed. Fanning and Turley won A-Division at the Harry Anderson Trophy and finished third at the Atlantic Coast Championship, pushing the team to an overall victory. They capped off their careers with a fourth place finish in A-Division at the Gill Coed National Championship.
Junior Nikole Barnes was named both a Coed All-American Skipper and a Women's All-American Skipper while her crew, freshman Anna Morin, was named a Women's Honorable Mention All-American Crew. Barnes and Morin went undefeated in women's competition during their 2015-2016 campaign, including wins in A-Division at the Women's New England Championship and the Sperry Women's National Championship. Barnes, who is now a two time Women's All-American, was also named the Women's College Sailor of the Year.
Sophomore Dana Rohde also earned Women's All-American Skipper status after being named an Honorable Mention after her freshman year. Rohde contributed to multiple victories for the Coast Guard Women's Sailing team this year, including a stand out performance at the Women's New England Championship where she won B-Division by 17 points. Rohde also finished second at the Women's New England Singlehanded Championship and went on to finish eighth at the Women's Singlehanded National Championship.
