San Diego presented the anteaters with very pleasant sailing weather this weekend. 70+ degrees and an average of 7knts with occasional legs of necessary hiking--who's complaining?
As usual, the warm weather in SD instigated a mellow vibe. Most people showed up at 10am, despite the NOR report time of 9am. Gotta make time for those Hector's burritos!
On Saturday and Sunday the varsity team broke in the brand new FJ after solving a minor design error (the pistols weren't aligned right). Colin Kincaid and crew Martha Davis sailed in Varsity A fleet while Brian Hoover and crew Chris Huang represented B division. It took a few races to get into the groove of things on both days, but Varsity picked up speed and continued finishing in top 5 positions as the day went on, plaving 4th overall in both regattas behind Santa Barbara, USC, and Long Beach.
Will Larsen and crew Sam Heller formed the JV A team on Saturday with Nick and crew Sharon Quigly/Austin Moore sailing in B division. On Sunday, Nick and Austin sailed for JV A while Sam switched to skippering with Sharon as his crew.
We all had a fun/relaxing weekend in San Diego and look forward to our next event----next up, the ladies sail in Stanford for the Bryson women's regatta.
A big thanks to the San Diego team for housing, and to our awesome alumni, Megan Pluth for supplying the anteaters with tasty snacks!
