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.
