College Life on the Water
One great thing about college and college sailing is time on the water during the school year. Once out of college it’s much harder to find the time.
The annual Big Sail between Cal Berkeley and Stanford is held a Tuesday when both students and alumni get out of ‘school’ to race on San Francisco Bay aboard St. Francis Yacht Club’s J/22s. Yesterday’s light-air match-up between Cal and Stanford found Stanford on top in three out of four divisions.
Meanwhile, this past weekend in Santa Barbara, the Stanford varsity sailing team continued its winning ways by coming out on top in the collegiate Pacific Coast Conference Championships, beating the UC Santa Barbara Gauchos by just one point. Stanford finished fifth out of ten at the collegiate match-racing championships in Charleston, SC, also last weekend.
Hate to say it, but the semester is ending soon and it’s probably time to hit the books.
