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!
Hi friends, just a quick update. We’re starting to plan for the 2017 Alumni Regatta and need your help choosing a date that will get the best turnout. Please fill out a short survey here when you have a chance.
Also, one more reminder to please help the team get some new boats! You can donate to that effort here.
Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!
Although 2016 may be winding down, the team is winding up an ambitious fundraising drive for FIVE boats and we are reaching out to solicit your support. Read on for a detailed note from the team, or head straight to the team’s fundraising page to make your donation! The campaign runs through January 31.
First off, I want to say that we are incredibly proud of the team and all of the progress it has made in the last four years. Four years ago we had less than 10 active members, very few organized practices, and consistently scored in the middle to back of the fleet in regattas. I am very proud to say that today we have about 50 very enthusiastic active members, unprecedented practice attendance, and we have extremely organized and productive practices that are leading us to improve our scores greatly. We have a lot of incoming talent and some members with little experience who are excited to learn and are picking up racing very quickly. As you know, our women’s team made it to women’s nationals for the first time ever last year, and we are looking to build on that momentum and take our team to the next level.
Just a reminder that the 2016 UCLA Sailing Team Alumni Regatta is THIS SATURDAY, MAY 14th! As always, great food, people, and sailing.
Report time is 10:00 and we’ll hopefully start sailing by 11:00. Racing at the MAC will be followed by a fleet dinner at the Schwegler’s house in Long Beach. If you haven’t signed up yet, please do so here, or if you’re not a facebook user just send us an email so we have a sense of how many people to expect.
We haven’t done a very good job of communicating the team’s accomplishments in the last year, and there have been a lot of them. To name a few, the team is close to completing a $10,000 fundraising goal for new boats, the coed team took 7th at PCCs, the women’s team finished 5th at PCCS, and the Bruins will be competing at the WOMEN’S NATIONAL SEMIFINALS in San Diego on May 24th-25th.
