South 5

Posted by Anteater Sailing Team on April 21, 2014 at 6:25 PM

This past weekend (April 12th, and 13th) marked the South 5 Designate

Regatta. We sent a team packing lots of Zot out to the Long Beach Yacht

Club where USC was hosting the event. On Saturday, Varsity B was skippered

by Sam with Kathryn crewing. In Varsity A, there was Nick skippering with

Deanne as crew. In JV team A, there was Kate skippering with Daniel as

crew. In JV team B, there was James skippering with Asher as crew. Sunday

had almost the same teams, with the exceptions of Philip skippering and

Daniel crewing in JV team B. In JV, team A also had the change of Kate

crewing for Nick. Saturday was a hot, sunny, and sunscreen filled day. The

ride from the yacht club out to the pier was very long and it took quite

some time for the race committee to get things started. This was partly due

to the Congressional Cup that was taking place in the same

area. It was high winds all day, which made for perfect sailing. There was

also a considerable amount of chop, which made this So Cal regatta feel a

little bit like a Bay area regatta.

Sunday was more of a relaxed day. Much more overcast than Saturday, but it

burned off in the early afternoon. The wind and waves had calmed down and

made for considerably easier sailing. Each team sailed two sets and called

it a day. The Anteaters ended up placing 6th and securing their spot to the

upcoming PCC Champs in Hawaii.
