Dear Friends,

In this issue, the 2011-2012 season of the UCLA Sailing team wraps up, and we recap some of the end-of-the-year highlights and awards, check out the team’s summer activities, and send graduating senior Billy Edwards off with a fond farewell.

Following the momentous return of the sailing team time capsule to its southern home and the annual Sailing Team Banquet, the team rounded out the year with a successful 2012 Alumni Regatta.

The team wishes the best of luck to graduating senior Billy Edwards (and FOUST welcomes another alumnus to the ranks!). Billy joined the UCLA Sailing team in the fall of 2007, and his dedication to recruitment and team operations have left a memorable mark on all those fortunate enough to share years on the team with him. Heartfelt congratulations to Billy on a magnificent tenure on the sailing team–we wish him the best in graduate studies at UCSD and welcome him aboard the FOUST community, where he is stepping into the Team Liaison officer position. Last year we profiled the graduating seniors. This year, with only Billy graduating, we have a profile written by his former teammate Oscar Jasklowski (’11) included below.
