UCI Sailing team

Dear Newport Harbor Sailing Foundation,

I am emailing you to thank you for the grant for the UCI Sailing team, sending us to Match Race Qualifiers a few weeks ago!! We really appreciate the support of NHSF, and couldn't have been as successful without you guys!

The results can be found here: http://scores.collegesailing.org/f13/pccsc-match-race/

It was a difficult weekend of sailing at California Maritime Academy, each morning starting with an extreme flood current going with the wind, making it nearly impossible for any boat to round the windward mark, let alone finish a race. Once the current and the breeze were a little more agreeable later in the day, we were able to win a couple great matches against UCSD and Cal, and were very excited to finish the regatta Sunday morning with a win against Stanford (the overall regatta winners!). All the practice we put in before the event really payed off, as we had awesome boat handeling and definitely saw an immense improvement in our match racing tactics since our first regatta together as a team earlier in the school year. We finished 5th out of 8 teams total, with a record of 3 wins and 4 loses.

Attached are some pictures from the weekend!!

All the best,
Kate Andersen
UCI Sailing Team President
