State of the Team/New FOUST System

Hi everyone, the post below (by our Team Liaison, Nora Brackbill) marks the start of a new system from FOUST.  Going forward, instead of monthly newsletters (or every other month, or “wait, we haven’t sent a newsletter in 5 months??”) we will be publishing posts to the website as soon as they are available, and sending out a quarterly digest consolidating those updates.  Hope you enjoy it!  -Sam


It’s about time for an update from the UCLA Sailing Team! They wrapped up South 3-4 in Irvine this past weekend, and have South 5 and St. Francis left before the season wraps up. The varsity team is comprised of an all-senior A-division, Erica Parker and Louise Lehman, and an all-freshman B-division, Elizabeth Hays and Sarah Wyman. They have a strong freshman class this year, with lots of enthusiastic new sailors to keep the team going. Thanks to Mary Snow for helping out with coaching at South 1-2. Continue reading

Emelia Pelliccio ('13) and Erica Parker ('14) debut UCLA's BRAND NEW FJ at South 3 in Newport.

Dear Friends,

We’ve been slacking lately at FOUST, but we’re back! With big news! See below for announcements about the Alumni Regatta (we have a date!), a NEW BOAT, and fundraising success. This issue includes regatta results for the first couple months of 2013 and a preview of what to look forward to for the rest of the spring, including the annual France trip.

Photo credit goes to Nora Brackbill (’13) for the action shots from South 3. We’re trying something new with this issue: you can click through most of the photos to higher resolution versions. This is something we want to keep working on in the coming months.

February 2010 Newsletter

Dear Friends,

Welcome to the second edition of the Friends of the UCLA Sailing Team newsletter. We are very proud to announce that just this past weekend, Varsity skipper Oscar Jasklowski won B Division at the South Series 3 regatta in Newport Harbor. Overall, the team came in a very impressive third place. UCLA kicked off the district championship qualifier series this spring by coming in second overall at the Jeff Simon Memorial South Series 1 regatta– without question the best overall result by the Bruins in recent memory. We’re all excited to have the women’s team back from abroad for the spring season, including captain Carmen Bozina and B Division skipper Shannon Walker.

Since our last letter, FOUST has grown significantly, the team has finished a season of sailing and added some great new recruits, and we are working together to bring you new ways to keep up with the team.  read more…
