2018 Alumni Regatta NOR

Saturday, May 12, 2018

UCLA Marina Aquatic Center (14001 Fiji Way, Marina del Rey, CA)

As with years past, we will run open rotation fleet races early in the day to determine teams for evenly-matched team racing in the afternoon. Courses will depend on conditions and participation.

All are welcome. Please RSVP using facebook or send us an email. We call this the “alumni regatta” mostly out of tradition – we would love to see parents and other friends of the team racing too!

FOUST and current team members: no charge
All others: $15 at the door
(If you have not paid 2018 FOUST dues, and do not use auto renewal, please pay dues here.)

Saturday, May 12, 2018
1000: Report and Registration
1100: First Start
All day: Food, Beverages, and Good Times
Last Race: TBD

FOUST annual meeting to elect officers (at the Marina Aquatic Center)
Fleet dinner at the Schweglers’ house (4153 Cedar Ave, Long Beach)

If you would like to share a ride from a major California city, or need a place to stay, post in the facebook event or contact FOUST and we’ll see what we can do.

This regatta will be governed by the rules in the Racing Rules of Sailing 2017–2020. Mostly

RSVP for the 2018 Alumni Regatta

The 2018 UCLA Sailing Team Alumni Regatta will be on Saturday, May 12, beginning at 10 AM at the UCLA Marina Aquatic Center!

As always, we’ll do some fleet racing and team racing at the MAC and then head to Schweglers’ house in Long Beach for a fleet dinner and regatta party.  Stay tuned for a Notice of Race with a little more information as the event gets closer.

If you’re able to make it, please RSVP on the facebook event if you haven’t had a chance to do that yet, or you can send us an email if you’re not a facebook user.

Also, the team is taking orders for long sleeve tech shirts for $35.  If you’re interested, please complete this form no later Monday, February 12.  A portion of each order will help the team cover the costs of competing at PCCs in Hawaii this spring.  Other gear, including regular T-shirts, will probably be available for sale and/or raffle at the alumni regatta.  You can also donate directly to support the team here.

See you at the regatta!

Rounding at St. Francis

Leah Ford (’19) and crew Arjun Boddu (’18) lead a pack around a mark at St. Francis

The team recently logged two impressive sixth place finishes, first at the always challenging St. Francis regatta, and then this past weekend at Women’s Pacific Coast Championships in San Diego.

The Bruins best finishes in both regattas were in B Division, with Leah Ford (’19), Arjun Boddu (’18), and Kylie Sullivan (’17) taking 4th in B at St. Francis, and Laura Roudebush (’18) and Maddy Kuhn (’20) taking 2nd in B at Women’s PCCs.  Huge congratulations from all of us at FOUST!
