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

Some of the participants at the 2013 Alumni Regatta

Thanks to everyone who made it out for the 2013 Alumni Regatta! We had a record turnout this year with more than fifty team members, alumni, friends, and family in attendance.

Dear Friends,

We have a monster newsletter for you this month. First, a recap of the Alumni Regatta by FOUST’s new secretary Oscar Jasklowski (’11). We had a record turnout this year with more than fifty people showing up to sail, catch up, and enjoy some good food and the perfect Marina del Rey weather. You can watch in-boat videos from a few of the team races on our website. The team revealed the until-now secret name of the new boat, and I am still blown away by their choice (thank you guys!). Huge thanks to the team, the Marina Aquatic Center, the Schweglers, and everyone else who made this event a huge success.

Next up, profiles of the Class of 2013. These four sailors have made enormous contributions to the team over the last four years, and we wish them the best in life after UCLA.

We also have a recap of the Edhec regatta in France from Billy Edwards (’12), and finally profiles of FOUST’s officer corps for the coming year, with Nora Brackbill (’13) and Oscar are joining the team. For our outgoing officers, Billy Edwards and Lyzz Schwegler (’07), I want to personally say thank you so much for everything you’ve done for FOUST – especially Lyzz, who has been part of this since the beginning, serving as President or Vice President for almost five years straight. Both Lyzz and Billy will of course continue to be involved with FOUST and the team – I’m not sure what we’d do without them.

Dear Friends,

We’ve got a short newsletter for you this month as we gear up for the fall season. This edition includes the fall schedule and FOUST officer bios. If you’re in the Bay Area or willing to make the trip, go ahead and mark your calendars for the Stoney Burke regatta on October 15-16 at Treasure Island, where we’ll have an alumni tailgate. Starting next month we should have the first regatta reports in, as well as bios of the new officers on the team.

We at FOUST would like to congratulate last year’s winners of the team’s Pacheco awards, given every year to outstanding team members based on a vote of the team. The 2011 winners were:

Rookie of the Year: Erica Parker (’14)
Most Improved: Oscar Jasklowski (’11)
Most Dedicated: Carmen Bozina (’11)
MVP: Judge Ryan (’14)

It just so happens that this year’s winners were also the varsity sailors at PCCs and National Semifinals. Congrats guys!
