UCLA Sailing Team

South 1-2
Jan 29 2006

San Diego, CA

After a short drive from Los Angeles to San Diego, an impressive showing of more then twenty UCLA sailors arrived to compete in their first race series of the spring season. Day one proved to be sunny and brought westerly winds ranging from six to eight knots. Representing UCLA’s two varsity boats, skippers Matt Sirignano and Sam Wheeler beat out Cal Poly SLO’s varsity team. Warmer temperatures but shiftier winds blowing four to eight knots from the southwest on day two provided an additional challenge to racers, but UCLA Varsity maintained a similar performance to day one. The well-orchestrated regatta in San Diego made for aggressive and fair competition. Hosting South 3-4 at Marina Del Rey in Los Angeles on February 11-12, UCLA looks forward to racing on its home turf.
