Alumni Regatta Reminders

Can’t wait to see you all bright and early tomorrow.  Some last minute reminders:

1- Report time is 10:00.  We need to be finished and cleared out by 5:00 because of another event at the MAC, so please try to be on time if you can.

2- Parking is limited at the MAC.  We ask that everyone park in the Dock 52 lot on Fiji, and we will shuttle people from there to the MAC.  Feel free to drive down to the MAC if you have people or things to unload though, just be prepared to take your car back to Dock 52.  The MAC has been very supportive of us holding this regatta, and we want to do whatever we can to minimize the impact on them.  If you go straight to Dock 52 and need a ride, please call Sam at (202) 525-6734.

3- The Schweglers are very kindly hosting dinner for everyone after the regatta.  Their address is 4153 Cedar Ave, Long Beach, 90807 (map).

4- Scott Barber (’11) and his family have offered to take us out on their J-105 on Sunday.  Please talk to Sam or Scott tomorrow if you are interested.  Details will be finalized tomorrow, but we are planning to leave the dock around noon.

 

Fundraising Opportunities: New Boat, New Sails

Hi all,

We’ve got some great news to share: this week, the team was awarded a $4000 grant from the club sports department to put towards a new boat.  The money was intended to be used for a single piece of equipment, and thanks to a great pitch by the captains the sailing team managed to beat out the other club sports in competition.

This money comes at a crucial time.  Due to limited funding, the team has not been able to purchase a new boat since 2006.  Major college sailing programs will rotate their entire fleet in that period.  UCLA’s top race boat has served the team well for five years, but at this point it is taking on water and puts the team at a competitive disadvantage.  A new boat will help to ensure that the Bruins can stay competitive next year and going forward.

In that context, the $4000 from the university is a very important show of support.  But it is not enough.   Continue reading

FOUST Newsletter: May 2011

Dear Friends,

Lyzz here, your friendly FOUST Vice President! I’m filling in for Sam while he takes care of his first year law school finals here at Berkeley. I know I know, it’s only his first year, how hard can it be?!

It’s been a super exciting month for the UCLA Sailing Team. The Bruins finished third in the coed Pacific Coast Championships, qualifying them for the national championship semifinals, where they took eleventh in the eastern fleet! UCLA took fifth at team race PCCs in Redwood City, and also fifth at women’s PCCs in Santa Barbara – only one spot out of qualifying position for women’s nationals.

Most recently, UCLA sailors were named in each of the three categories of the All-PCCSC team: Judge Ryan (’14) as a coed skipper, Erica Parker (’14) as a crew, and team captain Carmen Bozina (’11) as a women’s skipper. Carmen was also nominated for the district’s sportsmanship award. Big congratulations to these amazing sailors and the rest of the team on an incredible 2010-2011 season! We’re so proud!
