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.
So show up on Saturday and learn more about all of that firsthand from the sailors who made it happen! The regatta is always free for FOUST members, but please consider bringing your checkbook (physical or metaphorical – there’s no shortage of payment options) to help the team buy some new boats.
Hope to see you there,
UCLA Sailing Team, Class of 2008
