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.

FOUST Newsletter: May 2011

Dear Friends,

Lyzz here, your friendly FOUST Vice President! I’m filling in for Sam while he takes care of his first year law school finals here at Berkeley. I know I know, it’s only his first year, how hard can it be?!

It’s been a super exciting month for the UCLA Sailing Team. The Bruins finished third in the coed Pacific Coast Championships, qualifying them for the national championship semifinals, where they took eleventh in the eastern fleet! UCLA took fifth at team race PCCs in Redwood City, and also fifth at women’s PCCs in Santa Barbara – only one spot out of qualifying position for women’s nationals.

Most recently, UCLA sailors were named in each of the three categories of the All-PCCSC team: Judge Ryan (’14) as a coed skipper, Erica Parker (’14) as a crew, and team captain Carmen Bozina (’11) as a women’s skipper. Carmen was also nominated for the district’s sportsmanship award. Big congratulations to these amazing sailors and the rest of the team on an incredible 2010-2011 season! We’re so proud!
