Awesome Season End

As the High School Sailing Season winds to a close we take this opportunity to congratulate PCISA School - Point Loma High for dominating the Spring post season by winning BOTH the ISSA Mallory Dinghy and ISSA Baker Team Racing National Championships. Capping even that with a 17-0 (No Loss) record in the Baker Team Racing Nationals this past weekend at San Diego Yacht Club.

This means that PCISA Teams won three of the four ISSA National Championships this year (Newport Harbor winning the Cressy Full Rig in Fall).

It should be noted that all PCISA Teams performed well at the ISSA Nationals with Francis Parker finishing 2nd at the Mallory, CDM finishing 5th at both the Baker and Mallory and Newport Harbor finishing 12th at the Mallory. As we know strong teams come from lots of hard work and great competition all season. All PCISA Teams should take pride in being a part of developing a healthy, fun and strongly competitive District. Hopefully you've been able to watch the incredible performances of dozens of our Alumni at the College Nationals this past 10 days and culminating today (www.collegesailing.org). 

Also a huge thanks to San Diego Yacht Club and Event Chairman Steve Harris along with many SDYC, PCISA, ISSA, Umpires and parent volunteers for hosting an awesome ISSA Baker Team Racing National Championship. See pictures at the link below:

https://pcisa.hssailing.org/news-results/full-post/pcisa-cfj-sails-for-sale-at-discounted-price

And finally we would like to thank the PCISA Board and volunteers for all of their thousands of hours of hard work to make this all happen. The 2018-19 PCISA Calendar of Events will be published (its been circulating the hosts) in the next few days and by June 15 we will take a hiatus from High School Sailing until about August 15th.

PCISA Wine Tasting Fundraiser at Golden Bear Regatta

PURCHASE FUNDRAISER TICKETS ONLINE

On Sunday February 25th from 11am - 1pm at the VIE Wine Tasting Room on Treasure Island (only a few feet from the main Golden Bear Regatta viewing) PCISA is hosting a gathering and fundraiser.

For $25 per person you get to sample 5 Wines and enjoy Luncheon Hors d'oeuvres and if desired Bocce Ball in a private setting just for our group while still able to watch the racing.

Much of the PCISA Board will be present to chat about High School Sailing and the PCISA. This will be following our PCISA Annual Meeting at 9am Sunday morning.

We are in the middle of a fundraising campaign to replace the PCISA District CFJ Sails (64 Sets)  as well as to fund some organizational enhancements to support our district growth and needs.

We have raised nearly $60k of our $80K fundraising goal. We have ordered the new sails and would like to complete this campaign by raising the final $20k in the next couple of months.

We hope that this Wine Tasting Event can be a fun and informative way to move towards our goal. More than 50% of the $25 will go directly towards the campaign.

We ask that you encourage all parents and adult friends of High School Sailing near Treasure Island on this Sunday to attend this event. Please spread the word!

We would appreciate it if you would purchase tickets online in advance.

SDYC to Host Largest PCISA Girls Invitational Yet

San Diego Yacht Club will host the Pacific Coast Interscholastic Sailing Association's (PCISA) Girls Invitational from October 21-22, 2017. This regatta is an all-girls event that draws high school teams from all across the country to participate. There will be 21 teams participating in the 2017 running of the event, with 15 of those teams traveling to San Diego from out of town.

The only one of its kind in the country, the Girls Invitational was first held in the spring of 2010. Race organizers held it again in October 2010, and it has been held in the fall every year since. This event was founded by SDYC member and former College All-American Sailor for the United States Naval Academy, Mary Brigden Snow.

Defending champions Corona Del Mar High School will be back for the 2017 running of the regatta, which will feature the largest participation ever to date. Other recent winners are Newport Harbor High School (2015) and Coronado High School (2014). 

Maddy McGrath will sail the Girls Invitational for the last time this year, as a senior for the Francis Parker School. “I love competing in this regatta because it provides such a unique opportunity to race against girls-only teams in a high school style format—the only other major all-girls junior regatta I know of is Ida Lewis. This is such an important event because all too often regattas are dominated by male skippers. While there may be an award at events for a 'top girl' team, I feel like often female teams don’t receive the recognition that they deserve.”

McGrath, who is a San Diego Yacht Club member, also touches on how this event is helpful for girls who are looking for skipper experience. “This regatta is a great opportunity for girls (who primarily crew in the high school circuit) to practice skippering in an environment where pretty much everyone is a fairly new skipper. They may be high level sailors, but are used to only crewing, like me. I love this regatta because it gives me the opportunity to be at a competitive level among other girls, rather than being destroyed on the start line by the Gold A-division boys during race days at practice.”

Competitors will race in CFJs and racing will be held on the Shelter Island Shoal, just south of the Harbor Police dock. Racers will rotate from Kellogg’s Beach. The very best spectating will be from the tip of Shelter Island.

Marlisa Anderson and Judith Wattson will co-chair the event. Wattson explains how though this regatta is for high school students, it can make a large impact on women's college sailing.

“It's fun for me to be involved with the PCISA Girls Invitational once again. My older daughter Greer was a freshman skippering for Newport Harbor High School and I served as chaperone for the inaugural event. She went on to sail in college (skipper/crew) due in large part to this event. Many girls on the larger (deeper) teams don’t always have the opportunity to 'drive' in their district co-ed events. Many owe their success in women’s college sailing to their participation and the fostering they received through this regatta. My oldest is now a college sailing coach and my husband and I are thrilled to be back on the high school sailing circuit with our younger daughter Shaye, a freshman at The Bishop’s School.” 

There will be a practice day on Friday, October 20 with racing starting at 11am on Saturday and Sunday. Following racing on Sunday, October 22 will be an awards ceremony held at San Diego Yacht Club where prizes will be awarded to schools placing first, second, and third in the regatta.

Important Information - High School Sailing Season Begins

I hope everyone had a great summer! The Fall High School Sailing Season is here and there is a lot happening quickly.

All official PCISA information can be accessed through: www.pcisa.org and through the Google Group Email Distribution System. Information on this self managed system is available at: http://pcisa.hssailing.org/mailing-list

 

Team/School Registration

Teams must register online for the ISSA/PCISA (one registration) each year by going to: http://registration.hssailing.org/  Please read the information on the registration site carefully. This process can take a day or two (sometimes only minutes) to fully matriculate so please do this well in advance of any events as a team must be “Active” more than 24 hours before an event in order for the scoring system to work and the creation of a Techscore account (see below) can add another 24 hours. A couple steps in the process may need approval by a PCISA Official so you may need to wait a bit between steps. During this time of year things are usually approved at least daily and sometimes within minutes. When updating the schools online database information PLEASE REMEMBER TO CLICK THE “SAVE ALL CHANGES” BUTTON. This button moves a team from “Inactive” to “Pending” where a PCISA Official will check for payment and then move the team to “Active” for the season. You can follow the progress of your registration at: http://registration.hssailing.org/schools/directory-by-district/c/13/    Doing the online registration and making payment (via PayPal or Credit Card online) at the same time really helps. When updating registration information Click the “INVOICE” button to access payment. It is difficult for us to keep track of either “Pending” registrations that are yet unpaid and Payments that do not have “Pending” registrations awaiting them. If you see your team still as “Inactive” please have your administrator go back to the online registration, update any information and click the “Save All Changes” button (even if you do not make any changes). There are several teams in this “limbo” so if you think your team should be registered please go in and check on your school. If they are “Pending” we probably haven't received payment and if you are still “Inactive” please follow the instructions above. If you are not the registered team administrator (for the online ISSA system) but check on the team status and think it needs attention please contact your registered team administrator (not me nor the ISSA Office) to handle the issue.

 

Event Registrations:

We have a new proprietary online registration system for ISSA. PCISA is pioneering this system. I think you will find it user friendly, it is more financially efficient and it gives us total control of our own system. You can find all event information and access to online registration on the PCISA Online Schedule or via the PCISA Featured Events bar on the right side of the PCISA homepage. Note that event registrations are not complete and will not appear in the public Entry List until they are paid.

SoCal #1 - September 17th - NHYC - SoCal Series NOR Attached to this email - Registration Deadline Thursday September 15th at 5pm PDT - Please have team ISSA/PCISA registration complete before this deadline as well. - http://pcisa.hssailing.org/schedule/socal/2016/2017/socal

PCISA Single-handed District Championships and Qualifiers for the ISSA Cressy Nationals - September 24-25 - Redwood City/PYSF - Registration Deadline September 16th at 5pm PDT - http://pcisa.hssailing.org/event/home/singlehanded-pccs/309

Sea Otter Regatta - Oct. 8-9 - Monterey Peninsula YC - Registration Deadline September 23rd at 5pm PDT - http://pcisa.hssailing.org/event/home/sea-otter

 

Techscore - Event Results and Regatta Participation Information

Each School must have a Techscore Account. Through this account a coach or team official can maintain Regatta Participation (RP) information for each event in which their team competes. This is required!!

To open an account, add a user or add a school to an existing user go to: http://hssailing.org/regattas/scoring-program

Before opening an account a team must be “Active” on the ISSA/PCISA registration system. After opening an account it will take at least 24 hours for system information to be updated with team rosters thus accounts must be established several days before event participation!

 

As you can see there are a host of administrative matters that need to be attended to by each team. We have invested significant time and resources into making this as easy and efficient as possible. Virtually everything can be done on a smartphone, tablet or PC from anywhere with internet access.

 

Please make sure that team coaches, administrators, parents and team leaders communicate thoroughly (within) on getting these matters attended too. Please read instructions carefully and thoroughly. If necessary seek help from previous team leaders from your school, then from other knowledgeable nearby team leaders and then if necessary the ISSA Office or one of the PCISA Board Members. http://pcisa.hssailing.org/contact-pcisa

 

I would note that ISSA/PCISA Registration and each Event Registration status is available to everyone publicly online. Thus you can “follow along” to make sure your team is properly registered for everything and help to avoid missing deadlines. FRIENDLY reminders will likely be appreciated by the team administrators responsible for making this all happen.

 

Thanks for your support of High School Sailing. Once again last year PCISA was the largest (and arguably most successful) District in the country.

 

Please think good thoughts for PCISA Past President and current long time National ISSA President Tim Hogan who under went open heart valve replacement surgery a couple days ago!

 

Very Best Regards,

Mike

 

Michael H. Segerblom

PCISA, President

2015-16 High School Sailing Season Begins - Important Information

PDF COPY OF LETTER

Welcome to the 2015-16 High School Sailing season. Lots of activity has already been happening. It is critical to get some administrative matters caught up soon as events are coming up quickly.

Current year team registration, payment, info updates and current roster - Before a team may compete or finalize registration for events they must complete annual registration and payment for the ISSA/PCISA. Each team must have an “Administrator” (login account) to do so. This can all be done at:

http://registration.hssailing.org/   

Payment must be made through PayPal which includes payment by most major Credit and Debit Cards. No check payments will be accepted this year. Registrations will not be approved/updated until payment has been received. Please read instructions carefully and consult with previous or other team administrators for help. If necessary contact PCISA officials and/or the ISSA office if you are having trouble. Please do this well in advance of event registration deadlines. It takes at least 24 hours for registrations to be approved and the computer system to update.

SoCal #1 is this weekend at Newport Harbor Yacht Club. Registration and full information is available at: http://www.regattanetwork.com/event/11197      The deadline for registration is Thursday - September 17th at 5:00pm. Late registration will be accepted only with the approval of the SoCal Chairman.

PCISA Single-handed District Championships and Cressy Nationals Qualifier will be in Long Beach, CA off the Belmont Pier on September 26-27, 2015. Registration and full information are available at: http://www.regattanetwork.com/event/11187   Registration Deadline Friday September 18th at 5:00pm.

NorCal #1-2 is Oct. 3-4 at Encinal YC. Registration and full information is via the PCISA Website www.pcisa.org  Registration Deadline is Friday September 25th at 5:00pm.

Information and registration is also posted and accessible through the PCISA Website for the PCISA Girls Invitational and the PCISA Keelboat Qualifier to be held at San Diego Yacht Club on October 17-18. It is important that teams interested in these events register ASAP as berths are limited.

Once a team has registered and paid their ISSA/PCISA Dues, about 24 hours after approval they will be eligible to access Techscore. Please Login into or create a team Techscore Account at:  ts.hssailing.org

It is important that coaches become familiar with Techscore and have access to their teams account at all regattas as Regatta Participation information is now entered online during events by each coach.

This all sounds like a lot, and it is, but if team parents, coaches, team leaders and “everyone” works together, communicates effectively, delegates duties and “gets ahead of the curve” before your team begins to compete the season will go smoothly. DO NOT wait until the last minute to register and/or pay for dues or events as technical problems are possible and over loading the systems in the final hours could lead to difficulties. Many deadlines are VERY firm!!

Please consult with previous year and nearby veteran team leaders and coaches to help with understanding systems and procedures. After doing so if you still need help please seek counsel from:

30th Annual Rose Bowl Regatta

30th Annual Rose Bowl Regatta

Jan. 3-4, 2015

Hosted by U.S. Sailing Center and Pacific Coast Sailing Foundation

Host school: USC Varsity Sailing Team

Dec. 31, 2014

Saturday's forecast: Sunny; wind 5-10k NW; high temp. 65F. Fair weather due for Rose Bowl Regatta

LONG BEACH, Calif.

Some chill, rain and prospects of the coldest Rose Parade in its 125 years on New Year's Day haven't heralded fair sailing in midweek, but forecasts call for a sunny shirtsleeve weekend for the nation's best young sailors for the 30th Rose Bowl Regatta at Long Beach this weekend.

Some of the crews from 30 college teams coast to coast and 62 high schools from throughout California who left snow and ice behind may even ask, “This is winter?”

Temperatures should be up to 65 Fahrenheit Saturday and 70 Sunday, under orders from the host United States Sailing Center and Pacific Coast Sailing Foundation.

Led by defending champion Georgetown University of Washington D.C., currently ranked second nationally, and San Diego's Point Loma High School, all will sail two-person 13-foot, 3-inch CFJ dinghies off the beach at the Belmont Veterans Memorial Pier.

Top-ranked Yale isn't coming, but the next five—-Georgetown, Boston College, Navy, College of Charleston and Fordham—-will be racing.

There will be seating for spectators on the pier at no charge, with food, refreshments and comfort stations available. Racing will start at 11 a.m. each day, conditions permitting.

Georgetown, led by sophomore skipper Nevin Snow, finished a solid 15 points ahead of the runnerup U.S. Coast Guard Academy last year. The San Diego native estimated that although most of the teams were from outside the state, 70 per cent of the sailors were Californians.

One exception was his crew for the final rounds: Liz Mulvaney, a New York City resident who had never seen the West Coast. But she weighed only 125 pounds, which made her and other girls valuable crew in the light winds.

Later last summer Snow and three other Georgetown sailors represented the U.S. at the World University Championships in Italy, defeating defending champion Australia in the finals for first place.

Point Loma, meanwhile, hardly missed a beat in seizing its eighth consecutive High School Gold fleet championship in the Rose Bowl Regatta.

But this weekend the Pointers may face a stronger task against Newport Harbor, which has won the first two of six events of the PCISA series, followed by Point Loma with a third and second and Long Beach Wilson High School with a second and fourth.

Top teams in 2014 Rose Bowl Regatta:

College leaders

  1. Georgetown, 27 points.
  2. U.S. Coast Guard Academy,42.
  3. Roger Williams U., 48.
  4. Eckerd, 50.
  5. College of Charleston, 58.

High School Gold leaders

  1. Point Loma Varsity, 17.
  2. Newport Harbor Varsity, 33.
  3. Cathedral Catholic JV, 38.
  4. Santa Barbara, 57.
  5. Corona del Mar, 57.

 
High School Silver leaders

  1. Cathedral Catholic JV2, 20.
  2. Loyola, 41.
  3. Oakland Tech, 50.
  4. Windward School, 79.
  5. Sage Hill JV1, 85.

  
The US Sailing Center, once envisioned solely as a training site to help sailors fulfill their Olympic dreams, has developed into a center of training for sailors of every ability, from developmental clinics and hosting of world-class regattas to coaching area high schools and the USC collegiate sailing team. Programs also include Youth At-Risk activities, Learn-to-Sail classes for all ages and disabled sailing opportunities through the center's own Disabled Sailing Association. Learn more

2014 PCISA Team Race PCC’s - Newport Harbor High School

Winning Team Sailors:

C. D'Eliscu | K. Calder | S. Segerblom | M. Roach | C. Scott | J. Martin | H. Vandervort | B. D'Eliscu | E. Moody

Racing off of Lido Island Yacht Club on an incredible sunny day with temperatures in the mid 70’s where the wind was up from the West by 10am made for great racing and spectating. Racing began at 10:15am in about 5-7 kts. and the breeze built through most of the day with a high of about 12 kts. until backing off a bit in the late afternoon to 8-10 kts. A triple round robin (63 races) was sailed for the 7 teams entered. PRO Jen Lancaster with help from mark setter Charlie Underwood kept the Digital N Course square and the races moving forward smoothly. Lots of bay traffic (paddle boards, large power cruisers, electric boats, kayaks, etc.) kept everyone on their toes. Many of the races were extremely close with the top 4 teams virtually tied going into the final round. An outstanding umpire team lead by Chief Umpire Don Becker and including, Kim Kymlicka. Justin Law, Jeff Keenan, Mark Townsend, Vicki Sodaro, Steve Schupak, Charlie Legeman and Christine Robertson, was organized by David Blackman. 18 CFJ’s were equalized and kept on the course by Bosun Nick Madigan with help from David Dahl and Bill Mais. Over 378 finishes were aptly recorded and transmitted by team Drayton/Welsh and landside activities went smoothly under the guidance of Julie Martin, Maureen Madigan, Mette Segerblom and Molly Calder. Huge thanks to Lido Island and Newport Harbor Yacht Clubs for their support!!

Two protests were filed. One was disallowed and one resulted in the penalizing of the Cathedral Catholic Team for damage caused in a collision and procedures related to that event. Congratulations to the top three teams Newport Harbor, Point Loma and Corona Del Mar High Schools for qualifying for the ISSA Team Racing National Championships to be held in Seabrook, TX just outside of Houston at Lakewood Yacht Club over Memorial Day Weekend.

Golden Bear Results - Newport Harbor High School

2014 Golden Bear Regatta – PCISA #4

 

The 2014 Golden Bear Regatta was sailed out of Treasure Island Sailing Center for the third year this past weekend.  The 64 new sets of PCISA sails arrived in California just in time and the sailors had the privilege of hoisting brand new sails right out of the plastic bags on Saturday morning.  With the new sails the PCISA allowed 64 teams to participate even though the regular regatta cap is 60.  The Bay Area Youth Sailing Board worked hard to install all the floating docks for launching and rotations, since TISC keeps them in the parking lot during the winter.

On Saturday morning the fleet was greeted to warm and sunny conditions with a light westerly filling in during the skippers’ meeting.  The teams launched on time and the first race was started on time just after 11am.  The morning wind started out great and then started to die on the second beat of this first race.  It got too shifty and the RC abandoned race 1.  After a short break the real westerly filled and the sailors were treated to a perfect 7-11 knots.  The venue provides nice flat water and a close dock to rotate efficiently on, so the RC was able to complete two-and-a-half full rotations before 5 o’clock. 

On Sunday a 10:30 start time was scheduled but with a light southerly the fleet was kept on shore to wait for the westerly.  At about 11:15 the boats began to launch for an 11:45 start.  Unfortunately this promising breeze died quickly and all the boats drifted around for over an hour.  At just after 1 o’clock the wind was back on and great racing resumed in moderate breeze under sunny skies.  The RC was only able to complete 7 total races for Silver Fleet and 8 for Gold Fleet before the 4 o’clock cutoff time.  With the Gold and Silver split as well as the regular A and B divisions, with rotations every two races, this was actually a lot of racing for the high school teams.  30 races were scored over the weekend and Newport Harbor High School took first place in Gold, with Long Beach Poly winning Silver. 

Big thanks to Barb and Steve Grove for scoring the regatta.  Thanks also to SFYC race management and the BAYS Board for organizing the entire event.

PCISA Sails

Dear PCISA Schools,

The new PCISA sails have arrived in the United States and we anticipate using them at the Golden Bear Regatta. Thus we are going to begin selling the old sails. In order to do this, we need to gauge interest in purchasing these sails. It is likely that we will need to use some sort of lottery and/or allocation system as we anticipate interest to exceed supply. In this first round we are only going to sell half of the sails (30 sets).

We will sell the sails for $250.00 per set (Main and Jib with battens, no jib sheets) FOB Long Beach, CA
Payment by Check or Credit Card ($10.00 per set fee for use of credit card)

By a deadline of February 20, 2014 at 12:00pm PST please send an email with the following information.

Name of PCISA School(s) (As listed on the ISSA Online Directory):

Full Name of Contact:

Contact Email:

Contact Phone Number:

Number of sets of sails desired:

Note: As we anticipate an allocation system (number of sets of sails allowed to be sold to each active school) you may “apply for these sails” by either sending a separate email for each school with a separate contact or by listing multiple schools with a single contact. Please make sure you are authorized to purchase these sails (and have the money) before you “place this request”.

Once again note that we are only selling 30 sets of sails at this time and will likely offer the other 30 sets in the fall. We are currently selling numbers 31-60 that we have been using recently at PCISA Regattas.

Please use reply to this email OR make sure to place “PCISA Sails” in the Subject Line and send your email to: pcisa@ussclb.org

Please try to keep questions to a minimum. If you must ask a question about this process please use the same email listed above.

29th Annual Rose Bowl Regatta

Jan. 4-5, 2014                  
Host school: USC Varsity Sailing Team
Organized by U.S. Sailing Center, Long Beach                             
LONG BEACH, Calif.  

Georgetown University and Point Loma High School will tell you that the 29th annual Rose Bowl Regatta was an event when it paid to pick your partner.

With 26 college teams from across the country and 63 high schools from California all sailing little 13-foot, 3-inch CFJ dinghies and winds varying from 2 knots Saturday to 7 or 8 knots on Sunday, nobody needed extra ballast.

As Point Loma assistant coach Nick Kaschak, said, “Some of our events are guy-guy and some are guy-girl. This one was definitely guy-girl.”

Kaschak was calling the Point Loma shots in the absence of Coach Steve Hunt, who had a conflicting commitment to race Etchells in Florida on the weekend, but the San Diego team—-with 110-pound Rebecca McElvain crewing for Scott Sinks on the lead boat, hardly missed a beat in seizing its eighth consecutive High School Gold fleet championship.

Meanwhile, on the same short trapezoid course set off the beach in front of spectators on the Belmont Veterans Memorial Pier, Georgetown's A-boat skipper, Nevin Snow, went with 125-pound Liz Mulvaney, alternating the boat with B-boat skipper A.J. Reiter and crew Eliana Michaels.

The results: finishing of logs of 2-1-3-7 and 3-6-2-3, respectively, in the 26-boat fleet.

And here's another wrinkle: While Snow estimated that 70 per cent of the college sailors were West Coast homeys, Mulvaney, a New York City resident, said, “This was my first trip to California.”

But she added, “The sailing was less high-strung than back East, probably because of the better weather here.”

The High School Silver fleet for less experienced sailors was won handily by Cathedral Catholic's JV2 team from San Diego, with Ryan Ratliffe and crew Matt Parker on the A-boat and Jesse McKnight and crew Lizzy Matheson on the B-boat.

The yearly event is hosted by the USC Sailing Team and organized by the US Sailing Center of Long Beach, which for the first time had everyone launching off the beach.

Good to see new parents, sailors at Anteater Regatta

By JOHN DRAYTON

SAILING SCENE

ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER

Published: Nov. 14, 2013 Updated: Nov. 15, 2013 10:49 a.m.

http://www.ocregister.com/articles/high-537109-sailing-school.html

Last weekend, I found my way to the second of five regattas in the 2013-2014 California high school sailing season.

Hundreds of California high school sailors descended on Newport Harbor Yacht Club for UC Irvine's annual Anteater Regatta. The Anteater is typically one of the most popular races on the Pacific Coast Interscholastic Sailing Association's schedule.

Point Loma High School (San Diego) won, but all the local high school teams pushed the reigning national champions. Top local teams at the Anteater this year included Corona del Mar (just five points back), Newport Harbor, Mater Dei and Sage Hill high schools.

At this year's event, it was fun to see the number of new parents who have little or no sailing background and had stumbled into high school sailing for the first time. They may previously have thought that sailing was a peaceful and pleasant way to spend an afternoon. Most of these parents quickly catch on that high school sailing is one of the most competitive sports in our region, maybe only rivaled by other beach sports such as surfing, water polo and volleyball. Both CdM and Newport Harbor are routinely ranked among the best teams in the country.

Top high school sailing teams all have dedicated coaching. I watched a lot of these high school sailing coaches as they struck a balance between focusing on basic boat handling for the newer crews on the teams and then pivoted to advanced discussions about nuances such as wind shifts and tidal conditions with their veteran skippers.

When each team leaves the dock, it's fascinating to watch how top sailors don't even think about the choreography that is going on in their boats every minute. In a good roll tack or roll jibe, the roll is so hard and aggressive that their rudder comes completely out of the water – once past that point the only control sailors have is how they move their bodies and trim their sails.

In a scene I saw repeated up and down the docks during boat rotations, I was watching while Mater Dei senior Charlie Welsh came into the dock between races. Charlie really manhandles his lightweight CFJ, but before he heads back out, he hovers off the dock to finish up a last-minute pep talk with his coach, Nick Ventrilla. As soon as this discussion finishes, Charlie spins his boat around and throws his boat into a couple of big aggressive roll jibes to help it accelerate. Maybe more impressive is that Charlie's crew, Becca Stein, simply reacts to these moves and rolls in sync with Charlie.

Keep in mind, this isn't just Charlie and Becca. The level of boat handling and synchronization across all the top crews is so incredibly practiced and precise that it looks effortless.

Top Gold Fleet finishers included: 1. Point Loma (San Diego); 2. Corona del Mar Varsity; 3. Newport Harbor Varsity; 4. Corona del Mar JV1; 7. Mater Dei Varsity. Top Silver Flight finishers included: 7. Mater Dei; 8. Sage.

Harris/McGrath from Francis Parker Win SoCal #1

We had 30 boats for SoCal #1 at NHYC on September 14th. 7 Races were sailed, 5 of which were in a very light and shifty Southerly breeze. A huge thank you to Steve Schupak and Jeff Kraus for adjusting the course a few dozen times throughout the morning and early afternoon. Once the Westerly filled in, we were able to get two longer races completed in 8-10kts of breeze – a substantial improvement over the conditions in the morning.

Big thank you’s also going out to the ladies that helped out with registration – Julie Martin, who coordinated volunteers from the NHHS team, Chris Overstreet for helping out with registration and bringing all of the sailors ice-cream sandwiches, and Jack Martin and Katie Calder, both Seniors on the NHHS team for helping out with Race Committee. Thanks to coaches Cameron McLaren (NHHS) and Nate Dunham (CDM) for jumping in and helping adjust the course as needed. Looking forward to another great event at BYC on November 16th!

2013 Silver PCCs at Sausalito Yacht Club

The first ever high school regatta out of Sausalito Yacht Club proved to be enjoyed by all.  Spectating from the Sausalito waterfront was superb, with the finish line only 80 feet from shore.  Special thanks to the Trident Restaurant for reserving their dock for rotations only 300 yards from the racecourse.  Racing was delayed both days while the sea breeze made its way over the Marin Headlands, but with all 24 boats on the dock directly in front of the club sailors and parents were able to relax in the beautiful clubhouse and on the deck.  Two and a half sets were completed on Saturday by running until just after 6pm.  On Sunday only the remaning B-division half set and a final one-and-one were able to be completed before the cutoff time.  Seven races total for each division left Point Loma 1 winning, with Tamalpais next, and Windward third.

2013 Gaucho Regatta Report - Point Loma JV1

Winning Team Sailors:

Will La Dow, Jennifer Johnson, Trevor Hecht, Megan Landsdale

Photo Gallery - Results

Day 1 – March 16th, 2013

As teams registered for this year’s Gaucho Regatta online, there was no doubt that one question was on their mind.  Will it be like last year?  After the 2012 blowout where winds were gusting into the 30’s and sailors planed around the course all the while looking at snow capped mountains, there were some who hoped for more of the same and some who definitely did not.  The latter were the lucky ones as teams showed up on Day 1 of this year’s Gaucho to a benign south-easterly breeze and heavy fog.  In fact, the breeze was so benign that one could say it was non-existent at points.  And so early in the morning as boats sailed out in light winds, it slowly began to die to an eventual postponement.  A whale visited the drifting boats as the race committee waited for wind but to no avail; the on the water postponement turned into an on shore postponement.  Finally, a light southerly breeze picked up enough to get two races off for Gold and Silver A’s and B’s, but not enough to do much more than that.  The wind was not only light but extremely shifty, jumping 30+ degrees at a time.  The sailors who came out on top at the end of the day must be commended because not only are they great competitors, they had an uncanny ability to play huge shifts and read what was coming next.  At about 5pm when the wind died yet again, the RC called it quits and sent the sailors in to try again the next day.

Day 2 – March 17th, 2013

Optimistic Race Committee members and sailors woke to a break in the fog on Sunday which would hopefully bring a clearing breeze, but the fog began to slowly creep back in and take away hopes with it.  Once again, competitors sailed out to a dying breeze.  The pressure was on the Race Committee to get a few races off to officially call the event a regatta, but it was looking dismal until a very unusual Southeasterly breeze came slowly in.  At first it was extremely light and very shifty but then it picked up to about 5-7 knots at points; enough to squeeze the regatta in and a few extra races.  In total the Gold and Silver fleets completed five races for A’s and B’s.  The Gold unfortunately could not get a sixth race in as the time limit approached rapidly and while A’s had got the race in, B’s could not.  The breeze yet again on this day saw giant shifts of 30+ degrees and without a doubt the top teams must be congratulated.  The Point Loma JV1 team; led by Will La Dow (’14), Jennifer Johnson (’15), Trevor Hecht (’14) and Megan Landsdale (’16), showed extreme capability leading the first day and holding onto the lead sufficiently the second day to grab the hardware and the 2013 Gaucho Regatta win.  Congratulations to them and all sailors on surviving yet another Gaucho!

At the awards ceremony several catch phrases for the Gaucho Regatta were thrown around… “Gaucho Regatta; where is blows gnarly or hardly”…. “Taking into account last year’s conditions and this year’s conditions, the Gaucho Regatta averages 12-15 knots.”…Got any good ones?  Email them to ucsbsailing@gmail.com.

Special thanks to RC members and UCSB Alumni Kent Pierce and Tedd White for donation of their personal boats and time.  Additional special thanks to the Shevitz family for use of their boat ‘Divecat’ for RC.  Finally, thank you to the Santa Barbara Yacht Club, the Santa Barbara Youth Foundation and the UC Santa Barbara Sailing Team for helping put on a great event!

PCISA Golden Bear
Regatta Report
February 22-23, 2013


59 teams arrived at Treasure Island Sailing Center on Saturday morning, welcomed by crystal clear skies and light NW wind in the forecast.  A northerly component to the wind is not ideal in Clipper Cove and it gets very shifty.  The Race Committee had some difficulty chasing the wind around in the first 2 hours of racing, but eventually a westerly filled in at about 9 knots.  Unfortunately that di not last and the north kicked back in causing some delays.  Only 2 full sets were completed for both gold and silver fleets for the day, even after almost six hours on the water.


On Sunday a dying northerly greeted the fleet with 14 knots during rigging, but quickly died to a shifty 5 knots.  The first half set was completed in these tough conditions before a complete die-off.  The breeze took about an hour to clock around and come out of the west at a perfect 6-8 knots.  So after plenty of tacos it was some great afternoon sailing.  Due to the 4pm cutoff time only two sets were completed on Sunday, for a total of four sets for the regatta.  Point Loma dominated the gold fleet taking both first and second places overall.


A special thanks is needed for the Bay Area Youth Sailing Board and local coaches, who worked very hard to put this regatta together before and after the racing.  Sailing out of TISC in the winter requires installing and the removing all the floating docks used for launching and rotations.  This is a major project and takes about 4 hours of strenuous work on both sides of the regatta.

The day started off with an on-shore postponement due to lack of wind - the first start ended up at 11:30am. 4 races were sailed, with very temperamental wind - thanks to our great mark-set boats, we were able to adjust the course quickly between races and get a good number in before the wind completely shut off at 2:10pm. Racing was called for the day at 2:15 PM.

Congratulations to Jesse McKnight and Brianna Walsh from Cathedral Catholic for placing 1st, Michael Sabourin and Eliza Moody from Newport Harbor for placing 2nd and Patrick Shannon and Grace Blackman from Newport Harbor for placing 3rd. Great job sailors!

Navy, Point Loma claim Rose Bowl glory
Sunday's weather: W 6-8k NE-SW; temp. 73F.

LONG BEACH, Calif.
Winning the 27th Rose Bowl Regatta in little CFJ dinghies was fun for the U.S. Naval Academy sailors this weekend, but more sobering duty will soon call the seniors on the team.

Jason Carminati, the captain from Yonkers, N.Y. who skippered the Midshipmen's A boat in a close victory over Stanford, will start training to be a Navy Seal.

Alice Hong, his crew from nearby Palos Verdes: “I'll be going to an aircraft carrier.”

Caroline Lockett, from Boston, who crewed for Michael Grove on the B boat: “I'll be going to flight school.”

Grove, from San Francisco, is only a sophomore with his near future in Annapolis, but he'll carry a new weight as leader of the team.

“I didn't really know what to expect here,” he said, “but it was great to win.”

After Day 1 Navy led Stanford by only two points in the 27-boat fleet but stretched that to nine, 61 to 72, at the end with solid, steady sailing while keeping another eye on a brawl among St. Mary's of Maryland, 77; Georgetown, 78, and College of Charleston (S.C.), 79. USC, the host team, was a commendable sixth at 115.

Then there was—-no surprise—-Point Loma High School from San Diego, whose Varsity won its eighth consecutive Rose Bowl Gold Division championship while its Junior Varsity 1 and JV 2 teams romped to second and fourth places among 27 schools from throughout the West Coast. Cathedral Catholic, also from Diego, found room to squeeze into third.

How does one school collect so much talent?

Coach Steve Hunt said, “We're just really lucky that they all happen to live in Point Loma, and we had a great freshman team this year with a lot of light sailors.”

Ideally, Hunt said, a CFJ crew combined won't top 260 pounds, “but most of the young ones are around a hundred.”

One lightweight is Maddy Brownsea, a 15-year-old girl who crewed for senior Jake Reynolds on the B-boat. Olin Paine skippered the A-boat with Johannes McElvain and Grant Rickon alternating as crew.

“It was hard,” Brownsea said, “with a lot of people working together.”

Surprisingly, that included opponents.

“We talk to other crews,” Brownsea said. “We tell them things about the conditions and stuff and they tell us things. It helps everybody.”

Part of that involved the weekend conditions of light and shifty breeze that were unusual for Long Beach. Saturday had 2-6 knots and Sunday 6-8 made more difficult by a day that started with a brisk morning Santa Ana from the northeast before racing started and through the afternoon swung from northeast to west (140 degrees to 290) before settling in from the southwest.

Schools from the north dominated the 32-team Silver fleet, led by Palo Alto/Harken, Sir Francis Drake from San Francisco, Athenian from Danville and Bellingham from Washington state.

The event was based at the Alamitos Bay Yacht Club in Long Beach, a.k.a. the Aquatic Capital of America, and was hosted by the USC Sailing Team and organized by the US Sailing Center of Long Beach.

The US Sailing Center, once envisioned solely as a training site to help sailors fulfill their Olympic dreams, has developed into a center of training for sailors of every ability, from developmental clinics and hosting of world-class regattas to coaching area high schools and the USC collegiate sailing team. Programs also include Youth At-Risk activities, Learn-to-Sail classes for all ages and disabled sailing opportunities through the center's own Disabled Sailing Association.

Racing was very competitive and most definitely entertaining to watch! You know it was a great event when the entire fleet comes off the water with smiles on their faces. Conditions ranged from 0 knots to 15 knots. Races went by quickly and we saw fantastic conditions. Overall, the regatta went by without any glitches. And for that I’d like to express my gratitude for all those who assisted in running the event. I’d like to give a Special Thanks to the Volunteers and Coaches that assisted me with Registration, Mark Set, Scoring and Race Management. SoCals would not exist without the support from the sailors, coaches, host yacht club, and most importantly the parent volunteers! Thanks for making it possible to run these phenomenal events!

2011 Rose Bowl Regatta - Gold - Point Loma High School

BC, Point Loma win roses the hard way
Long Beach, Calif.
Top-ranked Boston College won the Collegiate division and Point Loma dominated the high school finish line—-no surprises in the 26th annual Rose Bowl Regatta, but it wasn't as easy as that.

Sailing their two-person CFJ dinghies outside off Belmont Veterans Memorial Pier instead of inside Alamitos Bay for the first time, the nation's largest combined competition tested 30 of the best college teams and the class of 54 of California's high school sailors before the best came to the top Sunday afternoon.

BC's Eagles, though ranked No. 1 nationally, were winless for the weekend and trailed the Seahawks by 13 points entering the eighth and last round. Then skippers Tyler Sinks and Katy Nastro scored their first wins, but even that wouldn't have been enough if the Seahawks' B boat hadn't stumbled to 15th place—-its only double-digit finish—-in the weekend finale, leaving the Seahawks the winners of an 87-89 squeaker.

Defending champion Georgetown of Washington D.C. recovered from an overnight seventh place climb back to third.

The event, hosted by the University of Southern California Sailing Team, organized by the US Sailing Center of Long Beach and based at the Alamitos Bay Yacht Club, also left Point Loma breathing a sigh of relief.

The San Diego team's Varsity boats, sailed by skippers Jake La Dow in its A boat and Jake Reynolds in the B boat, were cruising comfortably—-especially Reynolds with five firsts, two seconds and a third.

The wind was moderate and shifty.

“It was tough sailing, but I like it,” Reynolds said. “You have to think out there. I like that ... it makes you feel smarter.”

Coach Steve Hunt was away in a personal competitive commitment, so Mikee Anderson-Mitterling, a former USC all-American, took over with this smart advice for the sailors, according to La Dow: “He told us to just be conservative and don't get into trouble.”

La Dow and his crew, Will Herrin, succeeded until the start of the last race when they got into a collision at the pin end of the line with Cathedral Catholic's varsity boat skippered by Nevin Snow.

“Nevin was behind, but he rolled up with the leeward boat and hit us,” La Dow said.

La Dow went on to finish second. Snow protested but lost.

“We won [the event] in the protest room,” La Dow said.

But ... no hard feelings.

“That's what happens out there,” La Dow said. “We've sailed each other for a long time. We shook hands. We're still friends.”

Loyola of Marina del Rey won he high school Silver competition sailed in Alamitos Bay, underscoring Cathedral Catholic, 87-108.

The US Sailing Center, once envisioned solely as a training site to help sailors fulfill their Olympic dreams, has developed into a center of training for sailors of every ability, from developmental clinics and hosting of world-class regattas to coaching area high schools and the USC collegiate sailing team. Programs also include Youth At-Risk activities, Learn-to-Sail classes for all ages and disabled sailing opportunities through the center's own Disabled Sailing Association.

REGATTA REPORT:

45 PCISA teams participated in the Sea Otter Regatta on October 2-3 in Monterey, Ca., hosted by Monterey Peninsula Yacht Club. 

Saturday was a picture perfect Chamber of Commerce day, with sunny skies and consistent 8-10 kt breeze, and a small swell.  The race committee took advantage of the weather and was able to run 20 W - L races.  A couple of breakdowns were awarded, and three protests were withdrawn.

Sunday began with a light 4 kt North breeze, enough to get a few races in.  The wind then shifted to the West and built to 10 kts, with big shifts during the races.  After 12 races the race committee called it a day so that the travelers could get on the road at a reasonable time.

Congratulations to Gold fleet winners Cathedral Catholic, who were in a close contest with Point Loma Varsity and JV, finishing 2nd and 3rd.  Congratulations also to Silver fleet winners Corona Del Mar JV2, who dominated the fleet with only 50 points.

A special thanks goes out to MPYC Vice Commodore Joe Headley, who worked closely with the City of Monterey to provide a an area for spectators on the wharf for everyone's viewing pleasure.

REGATTA HIGHLIGHTS:
Saturday:  The rain held off until after racing but unfortunetly the breeze did too.  The RC was able to get in 1 race each for Gold and Silver A division.  A few more races were tried but were called off due to lack of breeze and changing condiditons.

Sunday: The breeze was in and so was the rain.  We had a consitant drizzle but we also had breeze all day.  The breeze ranged from 2-16kts. and shifty conditions but the RC was able to get 5 races off in A and 6 races off in B There was 1 redress and 1 protest filed resulting in a DSQ and Breakdown points being awarded.

A big thank you to the Port of Redwood City for letting us use their boat ramp, rotation dock and park.  Also a huge thank you to PYSF for the lunches and Seqouia YC for the Breakfast.  Last but not least thank you to all the Stanford sailors for running a great event under tough conditions.

LONG BEACH, Calif.—That sound heard around Alamitos Bay Saturday was a possible restructuring of the sailing power base for colleges nationally and high schools in California.

Boston College's sailing team, never far from the top collegiate rankings, lost last year's event on a protest and returned to lead the 24th annual Rose Bowl Regatta after the first day of competition, but by only one point over the College of Charleston and two over the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

St. Mary's of Maryland, victorious the last two years, was 10 points farther back in fourth, just three ahead of upstart UC Irvine.

The college fleets are split into A and B boats, and the hottest A boat was Georgetown's Charlie Buckingham of Newport Beach and crew Ashley Phillips. They logged a string of 7-6-3-1 finishes for 17 points—-a good day but not as good as that enjoyed by Bryan Rigby and crew Erin Markee, who finished 1-1-3-1 on College of Charleston's B boat that lifted the South Carolina team into contention.

Meantime, Sage Hill of nearby Costa Mesa broke through the usual high school showdown between Point Loma of San Diego and Newport Harbor, holding an impressive 17-point lead over the former and 18 over Newport Harbor and Santa Barbara High School.

Kevin Laube and Shone Bowman, sailing Point Loma's B boat, kept their team afloat by winning all four of their races.

The event is the country's largest combined collegiate and high school regatta with more than 300 of the nation's best young sailors competing for 24 college entries from the East Coast to Hawaii and 52 high schools from throughout the state, some with multiple teams. All are sailing two-person CFJ dinghies with male, female and coed crews competing equally.

Saturday they were faced with tricky conditions of light, shifty winds of 3 to 6 knots, out of which principal race officer Mike Segerblom squeezed four rounds of racing—-one more than was required to qualify the event as official.

“We didn't get a lot of breeze,” Segerblom said, “but the quality of racing was all right.”

And everyone displayed reasonably good manners; there were only two protests.

Some of the sailors returned to shore shivering in their wetsuits from the lower than normal air temperatures in the mid-50s. Haley Kirk, a 16-year-old local resident sailing for Wilson High, said, “This weather's not normal for Southern California.”

Sage Hill had finished second in two previous events at two other major events this year while Point Loma and Newport Harbor swapped firsts and thirds.

Coach Zach Maxam, a veteran Olympic campaigner in the 49er class, said, “I told the kids, 'I'm tired of getting second.' We haven't made any major mistakes yet.”

His team was led by senior skippers Mac Mace (2-1-7-1) and Michael Ramming (4-8-2-3), with Katie Lin and brother Steve Lin as crew, respectively.

“We definitely have stepped up the game,” Maxam said.

The event is hosted by the USC sailing team, organized by the US Sailing Center of Long Beach and based at ABYC. Racing is on the inside bay starting at 11 a.m., conditions permitting.

2008 Rose Bowl Regatta - Gold - Point Loma High School

LONG BEACH, Calif.—Hardly a drop of water from a weekend of West Coast storms fell on the 23rd Rose Bowl Regatta Saturday and Sunday, but after nightfall when the sailing was done the skies re-opened to rain all over Boston College's parade to the championship.

A protest by Stanford knocked BC—-ranked No. 1 nationally—-into second place and lifted St. Mary's College of Maryland into first place for the second year in a row.

Point Loma High also repeated in the high school Gold fleet competition with a Sunday comeback that brought it from 25 points behind to a 35-point edge over archrival Newport Harbor. Redondo Union won the Silver fleet title by 10 points over South Bay neighbor Mira Costa of Manhattan Beach. 

There were 28 college teams from the East Coast to Hawaii and 52 high schools from throughout California.

Boston College's A-boat sailed by all-American skipper Brian Kamilar with crew Briana Provancha won 4 of 11 races, but the trouble came when BC's B-boat tangled with Stanford at the weather mark in their ninth race. Stanford skipper Cole Hatton protested rival Tyler Sinks for forcing him to luff into the wind when Sinks, on port tack, tacked close to him within two boat lengths of the windward mark, then proceeded to contact the mark buoy.

Hatton's case was that Sinks did only one penalty turn for hitting the mark when he should have done two more for fouling Stanford. After a long deliberation, the race jury ruled in favor of Stanford, which remained in fifth place.

St. Mary's winning team had Michael Menninger and crew Brooke Thomson on one boat and Justin Law and crew Adrienne Patterson—-the college female sailor of the year—-on the other. All are West Coast natives from Newport Harbor High School, except Patterson who attended Corona del Mar.

As for winning on someone else's protest, Law said, “You take it. It was out of our control. All you can do is tell Boston College they sailed well and accept the win.”

Patterson said, “I don't like winning on a protest. It doesn't really feel like you won. But for me, it's always a special regatta. It's like a reunion. Michael and I have sailed in seven or eight of these starting in high school. “

Coach Adam Werblow said, “It's neat for these guys because going to [college] on the East Coast, becoming better sailors and then coming back to strut their stuff with their friends and parents cheering them on … they worked really hard, and they had nothing to do with the protest. The chips fall where they may.”

Point Loma was led by its B-boat team of skipper Nick Kaschak and crew Morgane Renoir, both 17-year-old seniors. They were in third place after six rounds Saturday, trailing Newport Harbor by a daunting 25 points.

“I realized we had to put some points on them,” Kaschak said.

Their fortunes looked up when a bit more breeze arrived in the early afternoon.

Renoir said, “The breeze helped us. We sailed really fast. We got into a groove.”

Two consecutive victories in the Rose Bowl Regatta “is a huge morale boost for us going into the rest of our regattas this year,” Kaschak said.

Their only problem was when the temperature dropped to 55 degrees when the wind increased.

“I was wearing five or six layers and was still cold,” Renoir said.

And, yes, she is an ancestor of the famous artist.

The event was hosted by the USC sailing team, organized by the US Sailing Center of Long Beach and based at the Alamitos Bay Yacht Club.

Maryland, Point Loma find ways to win in little wind

LONG BEACH, Calif.—-St. Mary's College of Maryland and Point Loma High School of San Diego made the most of what little wind there was in winning the college and high school championships of the 22nd annual Rose Bowl Regatta Saturday and Sunday.

Among 27 college teams from across the country, St. Mary's skippers Justin Law and Adrienne Patterson, both Southern California natives, won the college A and B divisions, respectively, with Meredith Nordhem and Melissa Pumphrey as crew. Their combined scores led host USC by 31 to 55 points, followed by the College of Charleston (S.C.) at 66, one point ahead of defending champion Boston College.

Patterson, who grew up sailing with Law in Newport Beach, arrived with a special purpose: to win it for her mother, Melanie.

“My mother just passed away on Dec. 20,” Patterson said. “She was my biggest supporter. It was wonderful to go out and show her we could beat the boys, like she always said we could.”

Point Loma topped a fleet of 57 high schools to reclaim the title it lost to Newport Harbor last year, also sweeping the A and B divisions of the Gold fleet behind skippers Tyler Sinks and Caleb Paine, with Shone Bowman and Reece Bernet as crew.

For some consolation, Newport Harbor's JV 2 team did win the 27-team Silver fleet with half the points of runner-up Sage Hill, also of Newport Beach.

The largest combined college and high school regatta in the nation was organized and conducted by the US Sailing Center of Long Beach and Alamitos Bay Yacht Club. More than 400 sailors sailed two-person CFJ dinghies, dealing with windless delays while rotating boats off the beach every two races.

As many as 14 races were planned for each of the three fleets, but the best the race committee could manage was three each day. It was especially frustrating with zephyrs of 3 knots and less Sunday, then even those gasped their last to force the end of all racing at 3 p.m.

But apparently it bothered St. Mary's and Point Loma less than some of their rivals.

“You can't look at it that way,” St. Mary's coach Adam Werblow said. “You have to look at it as exciting and upbeat, while everybody else is bummed out.”

Law said, “It comes down to boat handling with finesse and being aggressive at times and very still at other times.”

Point Loma came in on a roll. Coach Steve Hunt had just won US Sailing's prestigious Champion of Champions title with Alan Field in Arkansas, while Sinks was fresh from his victory in the 420 class of the previous week's Orange Bowl Regatta at Miami.

“Our kids sailed conservatively, intelligently and fast,” Hunt said. “Our main goal was to avoid the letters—-OCS and DSQ.”

Translation: no early starts and no disqualifying fouls.

“It was a big team effort,” Hunt said. “Our kids talked to each other a lot on the beach.”

All of the high school teams are members of the Pacific Coast Interscholastic Sailing Association (PCISA), the largest district in the national Interscholastic Sailing Association (ISSA).

Translation: no early starts and no disqualifying fouls.

“It was a big team effort,” Hunt said. “Our kids talked to each other a lot on the beach.”

All of the high school teams are members of the Pacific Coast Interscholastic Sailing Association (PCISA), the largest district in the national Interscholastic Sailing Association (ISSA).

2004 Rose Bowl Regatta - Gold - Marin Catholic

Sixty nine College (20) and High School (49) teams gathered for the 2004 Rose Bowl Regatta organized by the USC Sailing Team and hosted by the Alamitos Bay Yacht Club.
Saturday brought clear skies and a cool northwest wind 10-20 knots. Sunday there were beautiful clear sunny skies but winds were light and fluky and mostly unsailable until about 2:00 pm when a light (3-8 knot) sea breeze filled from the west. While waiting for wind many sailors enjoyed time on the beach back dropped by picturesque views of Catalina Island out to sea and Snow Capped Mountains inland. On Saturday there were a few breakdown requests and one HS protest filed. Sunday nothing was filed.

Saturday evening over 300 parents and students enjoyed dinner at ABYC and a program on college sailing presented by coaches and students from each competing college.

Thanks goes to the USC Sailing Team and alumni and volunteers from Alamitos Bay Yacht Club and the U.S. Sailing Center – Long Beach, CA for making this the largest and oldest annual combined college and High School sailing regatta in North America.

LONG BEACH - University of Southern California and Coronado and El Segundo High Schools out sailed widespread fleets of rivals to claim championships in the annual Rose Bowl Regatta Jan. 5-6 hosted by the USC Varsity Sailing Team, the US Sailing Center and Alamitos Bay Yacht Club.

The nation's largest combined collegiate-high school regatta drew 19 college teams, including five from the weather-beaten East Coast, and 44 high school teams from throughout California. The latter were divided into Gold and Silver groups, based on skill level, and each school split into A and B teams, which swapped boats and combined their scores for the school's total.

Coronado won the high school Gold division, El Segundo the Silver.

All sailed CFJ dinghies on the sheltered waters of Alamitos Bay, where conditions were shirtsleeve sunny with light winds of 3-8 knots on Saturday, followed by fading and shifty breeze on Sunday. The collegiate and high school Gold crews sailed six races each, the Silver 10.

There were no protests on the college course, least of all from the Eastern teams which escaped sub-freezing temperatures and snow. Georgetown, St. Mary's of Maryland and Boston College placed third through fifth overall.

2001 Anteater Regatta - Gold - The Bishops School

Winning Team Sailors:

Andrew Campbell '02 | Hillary Shapiro '04 | Frank Tybor '03 | Beka Clark '04

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. - Undaunted by bonechilling winds to 20 knots, a young coed squad from Bishop's School in La Jolla outsailed 23 other high school teams from throughout California Sunday to win Gold fleet honors in Newport Harbor Yacht Club's Anteater Regatta.

Coach Bill Campbell's outfit turned away traditional powerhouses from Coronado High School, Newport Harbor, University of San Diego High School and Pt. Loma High School. Overall, there was a record total of 48 teams from 40 schools, split into Gold and Silver divisions of 24 each. It was the first of a series of Pacific Coast Interscholastic Sailing Association regattas through next spring that will determine the season champion.

The ultimate winner will claim the new perpetual Roy E. Disney High School Sailing Championship trophy, which he presented to 2000-01 champion Coronado on Sunday. The new sails used by the two-person CFJs were paid for from Disney's earlier donation to the California International Sailing Association of $500,000 to be spent over five years.

The trophy is a half-model of Disney's maxisled Pyewacket mounted on a wooden plaque. Each year's winner's name will be engraved.

The Anteater was supposed to be a two-day affair but Saturday delivered insufficient wind to sail. Sunday more than made up for the oversight. A cold westerly arrived early under sunny skies and built from 12 to 15 and a peak of 20 knots that sent whitecaps rolling down Newport Harbor like bowling balls through tenpins.

With boats flipping the length of the course, the race committee soon beached some of the Silver fleet of less experienced sailors until the breeze subsided somewhat in early afternoon.

By that time Bishop's had the Gold fleet victory well in hand and ultimately emerged with 45 points to runner-up Coronado's 71, followed by Newport Harbor, 81, USD, 96, and Pt. Loma, 102.

Only four of Campbell's nine sailors in the Gold and Silver groups were seniors and six were girls.

“The whole tenor of the team seemed to improve with more girls,” Campbell said. “I think the boys have more fun.”

Senior Andrew Campbell drove the lead “A” boat in Gold, with sophomore Hillary Shapiro as crew. Junior skipper Frank Taylor had sophomore Beka Clark as crew in the B boat.

The 24 schools from San Diego to San Francisco split their teams between the Gold and Silver fleets. Pt. Loma won the Silver with 40 points, followed by Marin Catholic, 59; El Segundo, 79; Agoura, 89, and Corona del Mar, 97.

2001 Team Race PCC’s - Coronado High School

The PCISA team race championships were held on April 28 - 29, 2001, hosted by The San Francisco Yacht Club. The venue was San Francisco Bay, in the Richmond Harbor channel. Richmond Yacht Club was kind enough to allow the regatta to use their harbor and access. Seven teams participated: Corona del Mar HS (Corona del Mar), Coronado HS (Coronado), Marin Catholic HS (Kentfield), Newport Harbor HS (Newport Beach), Redwood HS (Larkspur), Robert Louis Stevenson School (Pebble Beach) and University of San Diego High School (San Diego).

Two evenly matched 6 boat fleets were provided by the SFYC youth training program for the competition. One fleet consisted of 2001 vintage Vanguard boats, the other fleet consisted of 1999 vintage Johnson boats. Sails were provided by PCISA. Two full round robins (42 races) were completed, then a “final four” round robin was sailed, for a total of 48 races. On Saturday the first race was started at approximately 11:00 am. Skies were partly cloudy, with wind speeds of 10 - 12 knots. As the day cleared, the breeze built steadily. Most of the races were run in wind speeds of 12 - 15 knots. Because the wind and tide were in the same direction for almost the whole day, the water was relatively flat. The final races were run at approximately 6:00 pm. 34 races were run on Saturday. On Sunday the first races were run at approximately 11:00 am in sunny conditions with wind speeds of 8 - 10 knots, building to 12 - 15 knots during the day. The second round robin was completed, and the final four round robin commenced. The last race was run and the sailors left the course area at 2:00 pm. Racing was generally tight, and the final results had to go to tiebreakers for first and second place as well as third and fourth place.

Final results are indicated below:

                         Round  Round   Final
                 robin 1 robin 2  four Overall
   
1.  Coronado HS     5 - 1  5 - 1  2 - 1  12 - 3

6.  Redwood HS          1 - 5  1 - 5   —  2 - 10
7.  Robert Louis Stevenson0 - 6  1 - 5   —  1 - 11

In the tiebreakers, Coronado defeated University of San Diego 3 - 0 for 1st place, and Newport Harbor defeated Marin Catholic 2 - 1 for third. As such, Coronado HS, University of San Diego HS and Newport Harbor HS will represent PCISA at the Baker championship.

2001 Rose Bowl Regatta - Gold - Coronado High School

More than 350 sailors, representing 16 colleges and 45 high schools, participated in the 2001 Rose Bowl Regatta, held Saturday and Sunday, January 6-7, in Long Beach, California.

The event, co-hosted by Alamitos Bay Yacht Club, the US Sailing Center in Long Beach and the University of Southern California Sailing Team, was sailed on two venues on Alamitos Bay. Results are determined by combining the scores from competition in “A” and “B” divisions resulting in each school's total. Racing was held in CFJ sloops, with each school sharing a boat and swapping teams on the beach between races.

The toughest competition of the weekend occurred among the top three teams in the collegiate division. In the end, St. Mary's College of Maryland eked out a one-point win against Dartmouth College of Hanover, NH; third place went to the University of California, Santa Barbara. Santa Barbara's “A” team was tops in its division and Dartmouth's “B” team tops in theirs; but the consistent performance of the St. Mary's “A” team of Danny Pletsch and Leah Anderson and the “B” team of Brent Jansen and Sarah McCarron led to their win.

The 45 high schools, all from within California, were divided into two groups. Coronado High School of Coronado, with an “A” team of Brian Haines and Blaire Herron and a “B” team of Mikee Anderson-Mitterling and Lauren Usrey, were first in the 24-school Gold Division. Servite High School of Anaheim, with an “A” team of Ryan Mulvania and Dustin Delgado and a “B” team of Jamie DeWolfe and Ryan Gautshi, won the 21-school Silver Division.

A feature of the Rose Bowl Regatta is the Saturday-night dinner at Alamitos Bay Yacht Club where top high-school sailors and their parents meet and listen to presentations from collegiate coaches and team members. More that 300 dinners were served, and 20 collegiate sailing programs from all over the United States were represented.

The Rose Bowl Regatta showcases the tremendous success that California has had in developing High School sailing by working closely with the colleges. Since 1989 the number of High Schools fielding competitive sailing teams in California has grown from less than ten to more than seventy.

COLLEGIATE DIVISION (16 schools): 1. St. Mary's College, St. Mary's, Maryland (83 points); 2. Dartmouth College, Hanover, NH (84); 3. UC Santa Barbara, Santa Barbara, CA (84); 4. University of Southern California, Los Angeles, CA (100); 5. Boston College, Boston, MA (104).
