Last weekend (Jan. 4 & 5) the UCI Sailing Team sent their Varsity team up to Long Beach for the 29th Annual Rose Bowl Regatta. Sam Heller skippered Varsity A with crew Kathryn Benight and Nick Weis skippered Varsity B with crew Kate Anderson. James Heller accompanied them on Saturday to cheer them on.
Saturday was an extremely light and boring day; Varsity A fleet sat on the water for about three hours until the first race started. Only three races were run that day, two A fleet and one B fleet race. On Sunday, race committee let the sailors hang out on the beach and pier until the wind filled in (only a little bit) around noon. The wind picked up for a bit while A fleet was sailing their second set, but then died when B fleet returned for their last set.

In the end, Varsity sailed a total of eight races A and B combined and we placed 23rd out of 26 teams. Full results and scores from the regatta can be found here: http://scores.collegesailing.org/f13/rose-bowl/
