Cal Team RaceMar 6 2005
By Sarah Lewis
The Cal Team Race brought UCLA sailing back to Nor Cal for the first time this quarter. Six teams competed in a double round robin over the course of the weekend, ending in a final four with USC victorious. Blue skies and bright sunshine welcomed us both Saturday and Sunday at the Treasure Island Sailing Center. The wind took its time to fill in both days, allowing for a great game of ultimate Frisbee with Cal team members before Sunday’s races. When the wind finally filled in to 12 knots from the NW on Sunday afternoon, UCLA’s last race of the weekend ended with a well-deserved victory against Stanford. On Saturday the team met up with UCLA sailing alum, Kevin Richards, observer and judge of this regatta. Kevin provided helpful tips throughout the regatta and a very generous donation! Thank you Kevin!
