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!

A few updates even though the April newsletter isn’t quite ready yet:
1: The team is ordering jackets. They are going to be graphite gray Gill Softshells with an embroidered UCLA Sailing logo. Please let us know right away if you’d like to get one. With embroidery, the cost will probably be about $130. It’s possible that will come down a little if they can get a group discount. The team is not making any money off this, so if you get one please consider also making a donation.
2: Just as a reminder, the Alumni Regatta is on Sunday, May 27, in Marina del Rey! That’s Memorial Day weekend. Make sure to mark your calendars, and please either RSVP on facebook or send us an email to let us know you’ll be there.
3: We’ll have more results in the newsletter, but we wanted to say congrats to the women’s team on taking fourth at Women’s PCCs in Hawaii! Unfortunately they were one spot away from qualifying for nationals, but with no one graduating, they’re in great shape going into next year.
Looking forward to seeing you all next month!
