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!

We’re hoping to see all of you at the Alumni Regatta on Sunday, May 26 (Memorial Day weekend). If you RSVP on facebook or send us an email, we’ll be sure to have food for you. This will be the fifth year of the present incarnation of the alumni regatta so let’s make it the best yet!

FOUST Newsletter: October 2012

Low wind at Tomales Bay, where a number of UCLA alumni competed in the Vanguard 15 Fleet 53 championships. Kevin Richards ('00) and Neha Bazaj ('10) finished second of fifteen boats.

Dear Friends,

Another year of UCLA sailing has started, and the team has already competed in four regattas. We’ve got results for you below. They’ve also had a great start recruiting, with 25 new sailors showing up for the initial recruiting event and around 18 staying involved so far. The roster was starting to get a little low last year, but with only one graduate departing last spring and a good turnout this fall, the future of the team looks as bright as ever.

The team shifted to a new practice schedule this fall, getting on the water on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. Considering the number of Monday practices that got cancelled when people were worn out from regatta weekends, I wish we had thought of that while I was there. Instead of sailing on Mondays, they’ve been holding chalk talks in Westwood to help get the new recruits up to speed. So far, these have been well attended by new and returning members alike.

In addition to regatta results, we’ve also got some updates on alumni sailing activities, including dinghy racing, distance sailing, and a pirate festival.

These newsletters often include a request for donations to the team. Right now, though, there are significantly greater needs. Please do what you can to help with the recovery from Hurricane Sandy, whether that’s donating money to the Red Cross, giving blood, or if you’re in the affected areas, volunteering. Don’t worry, we’ll get back to hitting you up for money for the team soon enough. For now, we hope that any members of the FOUST community who are on the east coast are staying safe.

Representatives of the UCLA Sailing Team at the Course Croisiere EDHEC in France. UCLA took 17th, its best result yet in five years of attending this international event.

Dear Friends,

Sorry you haven’t heard from us in a while, but we’ve been saving up for an issue you won’t want to miss. See below for alumni regatta updates, including an NOR, and two social events for Memorial Day weekend in addition to the regatta itself. We also have results from Coed, Women’s, and Team Race PCCs. Finally, a recap from team captain Billy Edwards of UCLA’s fifth straight year participating the the Edhec Cup in France, where the Bruins got their best results yet.

Can’t wait to see you all in Marina del Rey on May 27!

Jackets – Alumni Regatta Reminder – Women’s PCCs

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!
