MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – The Inter-Collegiate Sailing Association (ICSA) has named its 2013 All-Academic Sailing Team and a trio of Dartmouth sailors earned recognition. Seniors Chandler Salisbury and Margaret Wilson were named first team All-Academic while junior Sarah Peck garnered second team honors.

The All-Academic Sailing Team was inaugurated in 2006. A nominated sailor must have a minimum of a 3.5 cumulative GPA (on a 4.0 scale), junior or senior academic standing and they must be a key starter or reserve on a school’s sailing team.

A seven-person committee comprised of representatives from each conference in the ICSA evaluates the nominated sailors. The committee uses the same competition data that is used to determine the ICSA All-American Team, which honors sailors for their exceptional competitive performance.

Salisbury was a key member in the 2013 National Championship team as she raced in nine races in the B-Division. The Lakewood, Ohio, native led the team to victory in race No. 11, while earning top-five finishes in three other heats.

Wilson helped the Big Green place second in the Gill Coed Championship. The Rye, N.H., native raced in the first 16 heats in the B-Division. She paced the team to a victory in the opening race and a second place finish in the 16th race. While she was on the water, the team reeled in six other top-five finishes.

Peck saw success on the water and in the classroom during her junior campaign as she was presented Dartmouth’s Unsung Hero Trophy, which is awarded to the Dartmouth sailor who has made great contributions to the team that have gone unrecognized.
