FOUST Newsletter: September 2011

Current status of fundraising for a new boat.

Dear Friends,

Another short newsletter this month, but get excited for racing to start next month. UCLA will kick off the college sailing season at Frosh/Soph, a regatta for first and second year sailors on Mission Bay on October 8-9. The full team will compete at Stoney Burke at Treasure Island on October 15-16, where we’re hoping for strong alumni turnout, and the women will hopefully be sailing Women’s Fall Champs at Stanford the following weekend. The complete fall schedule is available on the PCCSC website.

This issue includes a letter from the captains, the status of fundraising for a new boat, and information about the upcoming tailgate for alumni and other friends of the team at the Stoney Burke regatta.

Dear Friends,

We’ve got a short newsletter for you this month as we gear up for the fall season. This edition includes the fall schedule and FOUST officer bios. If you’re in the Bay Area or willing to make the trip, go ahead and mark your calendars for the Stoney Burke regatta on October 15-16 at Treasure Island, where we’ll have an alumni tailgate. Starting next month we should have the first regatta reports in, as well as bios of the new officers on the team.

We at FOUST would like to congratulate last year’s winners of the team’s Pacheco awards, given every year to outstanding team members based on a vote of the team. The 2011 winners were:

Rookie of the Year: Erica Parker (’14)
Most Improved: Oscar Jasklowski (’11)
Most Dedicated: Carmen Bozina (’11)
MVP: Judge Ryan (’14)

It just so happens that this year’s winners were also the varsity sailors at PCCs and National Semifinals. Congrats guys!
