Jackets – Alumni Regatta Reminder – Women’s PCCs

A few updates even though the April newsletter isn’t quite ready yet:

1: The team is ordering jackets.  They are going to be graphite gray Gill Softshells with an embroidered UCLA Sailing logo.  Please let us know right away if you’d like to get one.  With embroidery, the cost will probably be about $130.  It’s possible that will come down a little if they can get a group discount.  The team is not making any money off this, so if you get one please consider also making a donation.

2: Just as a reminder, the Alumni Regatta is on Sunday, May 27, in Marina del Rey!  That’s Memorial Day weekend.  Make sure to mark your calendars, and please either RSVP on facebook or send us an email to let us know you’ll be there.

3: We’ll have more results in the newsletter, but we wanted to say congrats to the women’s team on taking fourth at Women’s PCCs in Hawaii!  Unfortunately they were one spot away from qualifying for nationals, but with no one graduating, they’re in great shape going into next year.

Looking forward to seeing you all next month!

Update on Coed PCCs

The latest: Cal Maritime declined their berth at PCCs, so UCLA will be attending. The regatta is April 29-29 in Santa Barbara. Go Bruins!

The original post is below for posterity but can be ignored in light of recent events.

Unfortunately, UCLA did not qualify for Coed PCCs this year. The circumstances are a little complicated, so we wanted to explain it here for you.

Normally, the top five teams from the North and South divisions of the PCCSC qualify for PCCs, plus Hawaii. Unfortunately, UCLA was not able to make it into the top five in a very competitive South division this spring.

This year, one extra berth was available (PCCSC Standing Rule 9(e)(vi) allows the host to make extra berths available if they can accommodate additional teams).  Rule 9(e)(vi) states that such a berth goes to the not-otherwise-qualifying team with the best combined score at the two “designate” regattas: South 5 and St. Francis.
