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!

2017 Alumni Regatta – May 13th

Happy sailors at last year's event.  This could be you!

Happy sailors at last year’s event. This could be you!

The 2017 UCLA Sailing Team Alumni Regatta will take place on Saturday, May 13th.  Please save the date and RSVP to our facebook event!

More information will follow, but as always we’ll do some fleet racing in the morning, team racing in the afternoon, and head to the Schweglers’ house in Long Beach (thanks, Schweglers!) after racing for dinner and the fleet party. Despite the name, this event is not limited to alumni – all family, friends, and fans are welcome.

We at FOUST would also like to take this opportunity to express how grateful we are to everyone at the Marina Aquatic Center who helps us put this event on every year.

Hope to see you there!
