Mission Bay

Hosted by UCSD and MBYC, the regatta saw winds from 6-12 kts mostly out of the North-West, plenty of sun and mild temperatures ranging from 65-75 degrees. Consistent breeze allowed 14 races in each division over the two day event making for a fantastic regatta. There was much shuffling of skippers and crews over the weekend, so the scores don’t mean all that much, but overall UCLA JV 1 came in 15th and UCLA JV 2 came in 18th on day 1 (only JV 1 sailed on Sunday) out of 23 boats. Returning sailors were Drew Morton, Billy Edwards, Carmen Bozina, and Karleen Wray. We are very proud of the 4 new team members, Andrew Segal, Jay Ballen, Tatsuma Woo-Kawaguchi, and Oscar Jasklowski, who came out and sailed in their first (or second) college regatta ever, despite only being on the team for a few weeks with minimal time to learn the finer points of racing FJ’s. Also a big thanks to Danielle Ryan for joining us, helping out on the race committee and feeding the team with delicious burritos from Hector’s and Santana’s.
