Bryson Women’s Regatta
Saturday, April 11, 2015
On April 11 and 12, the UC San Diego Triton sailing team traveled to Redwood City and participated in the Bryson Women’s Regatta hosted by Stanford. This was an interesting regatta because both Fleet A and Fleet B raced together, sharing the course. With 18 boats sharing the starting line, this made for congested starts and chaotic mark roundings. UC San Diego had two boats in the running, manning A boat was Hayley Chong and myself and in B boat was Elsa Felgar and Grant Lin. Grant was the hero of this trip as he so willingly filled in for a fellow injured sailor. This being my first regatta sailing for UC San Diego and Hayley’s first regatta skippering, we had a wild time adapting. The first day we were in z420s for the first four races, and FJs for the final 4, braving heavy winds. By the time all the boats had docked safely at the end of the day the winds were blowing at a fierce 25 knots. On Day 2, the races were postponed about 2 hours due to the lack of wind. Finally when they sent us out the wind had died again so Hayley and I rafted up with Elsa and Grant, and engaged in an exchange of riddles. When the races finally started we were faced with the challenge of sailing in really light wind. Our last race was an upwind finish and possibly our best race as we finished 15 out of the 18 boats. Though our final scores put UC San Diego in last place, I cannot say that we left empty handed. All in all it was an amazing experience rich with learning and laughter.
