August 2012 Newsletter

UCLA Sailing Team alumni at Huntington Lake for the 2012 High Sierra Regatta.

Dear Friends,

Summer is always a little slow for sailing team news, but never fear, we’ve put together a great issue for you anyway. Read on for profiles of the incoming officers on both the Team and FOUST, a recap of the 2012 High Sierra regatta, where UCLA alumni made a strong showing, and the Team’s race schedule for the fall.

One event to make sure you mark on your calendars is the new-this-year PCCSC Afterguard Regatta at San Diego Yacht Club on September 29 and 30 [dates corrected]. The event will be sailed in FJs and J/22s and is open to alumni of any PCCSC school. FOUST Secretary Danielle Ryan (’09) has volunteered to coordinate a UCLA team, so email FOUST if you want to be a part of it. Teams can also be mixed and matched combinations of alumni from different schools. FOUST Team Liaison Billy Edwards (’12) and recent grad Anna Schoenbrunner have offered to host people in San Diego.

We have also traditionally held an alumni tailgate at the Stoney Burke Regatta at Treasure Island. This year, that regatta takes place on October 13 and 14. The final regatta for the Treasure Island Vanguard 15 fleet is the same weekend in Tomales Bay, so ironically, a number of our Bay Area alumni who participate in that fleet would be unable to be at Treasure Island for the tailgate. Please email FOUST if you would like to do an alumni event at the regatta, and we’ll gauge interest and figure something out.
