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!

March 2012 Newsletter

Participants at the 2011 Alumni Regatta. Mark your calendar for May 27!

Dear Friends,

The date is set for the 2012 Alumni Regatta! Please join us at the UCLA Marina Aquatic Center in Marina del Rey on May 27 (Sunday of Memorial Day weekend). You can RSVP on Facebook here or send us an email if you prefer. All are welcome – FOUST members for free, and others for a nominal entry fee to help cover costs. We’ll have more information as the regatta gets closer, but expect the usual: great weather, fun sailing, and of course carne asada on the grill.

The early logistics for the alumni regatta have been keeping us busy, so we’ve got a short issue for you this time (and we missed February altogether – in our defense, it’s a short month…). Read on for a recap of the spring regattas, which have left the Bruins fighting for a wildcard slot at the coed district championships.

With Coed PCCs in question, it’s even more important that the women’s team have a strong showing at Women’s PCCs in Hawaii. If you can, please consider making a donation to help the girls get to Honolulu. (And if you do, please also send us an email so we can keep track of how we’re doing on that.) The team is and has always been largely self-funded, but we don’t think anyone should have to pay out of pocket to get to a championship regatta.

Dear Friends,

Happy Halloween from FOUST!

October was a busy month for the UCLA Sailing Team, kicking off the season with two regattas in San Diego and three in the San Francisco area. Highlights include winning A Division at Stoney Burke, taking third at the SDYC Autumn Invitational Match Race Regatta, and snagging a bullet in the first B Division race at Women’s Fall Champs.

The biggest highlight, however, might have been the completion of our latest fundraising target, with Ed Feo (’74) making the final donation to push the team past the $7900 they needed. Thank you to everyone who chipped in!

Finally, the Stoney Burke regatta tailgate was a big success, with alumni ranging from 1991 to 2011 in attendance. A few alumni will also be showing up for North/South at Santa Barbara on November 12-13, so if you’re free that weekend come out and show your support at the last regatta of 2011!

April 2011 Newsletter

Dear Friends,

This is the first of what, going forward, will be a monthly newsletter. We’ve got information about the alumni regatta, a big thank you to the parents whose donations secured a new trailer for the team, not one but two season recaps, and a profile of FOUST member Bobby Gordon (’08), this month’s featured alum.

One result that everyone needs to see, even if you don’t read this whole email: UCLA won the South 5 regatta!! If we had the resources, we would be throwing parades and gladiatorial games for these guys. Since we don’t, we’ll just say congratulations.

St. Francis Regatta

Hi everyone,

I’m sorry that you haven’t been hearing much from us lately.  Starting Monday, we will be providing a monthly newsletter to keep you up to date about the team and FOUST.

I wanted to write before that came out, though, to alert our Bay Area members to the St. Francis regatta that is taking place this weekend.  This is always one of the biggest regattas of the year and usually includes high wind that makes for exciting spectating. I’ll be helping with race committee, several other alumni will be in attendance, and of course the team will be there to compete.
