March 2012 Newsletter

Participants at the 2011 Alumni Regatta. Mark your calendar for May 27!

Dear Friends,

The date is set for the 2012 Alumni Regatta! Please join us at the UCLA Marina Aquatic Center in Marina del Rey on May 27 (Sunday of Memorial Day weekend). You can RSVP on Facebook here or send us an email if you prefer. All are welcome – FOUST members for free, and others for a nominal entry fee to help cover costs. We’ll have more information as the regatta gets closer, but expect the usual: great weather, fun sailing, and of course carne asada on the grill.

The early logistics for the alumni regatta have been keeping us busy, so we’ve got a short issue for you this time (and we missed February altogether – in our defense, it’s a short month…). Read on for a recap of the spring regattas, which have left the Bruins fighting for a wildcard slot at the coed district championships.

With Coed PCCs in question, it’s even more important that the women’s team have a strong showing at Women’s PCCs in Hawaii. If you can, please consider making a donation to help the girls get to Honolulu. (And if you do, please also send us an email so we can keep track of how we’re doing on that.) The team is and has always been largely self-funded, but we don’t think anyone should have to pay out of pocket to get to a championship regatta.
