Alumni Regatta and Barbecue

May 30, 2017

Hey Everyone,

We would like to invite you to the 2017 Alumni Regatta and Barbecue! The event will be split into two parts, both of which will be held on Sunday, June 4th. 

Part I: Racing

Alumni wishing to sail in the regatta will meet at the UCSC Boating Center Dock at 1200 where skipper and crew pairs will be established. CFJ's will be sailed and racing will take place outside the harbor. Registration for Part I is $20 per sailor, and includes BBQ dinner following the races. 

Part II: Barbecue

After races finish, a BBQ will be held in the lower room of the Santa Cruz Yacht Club. Food will be available for $10 a plate, and beverages will be available for purchase from SCYC. 

Please RSVP if you plan on attending either event. 

Stay posted for more information as we get closer, and if you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask. 

We hope to see you all there!

New Boat!!

September 22, 2016

Our new boat has arrived and it is ready for the 2016-2017 regatta season. Thank you so much to all of our kind donors who helped us reach our goal! Also a huge thank you to the UCSC Crowdfunding department for helping facilitating the largest fundraising campaign the sailing team has ever done. 

Boat Progress

February 09, 2016

Hey y'all,

Thanks again for all the support that has helped us achieve a new boat!  We have ordered the boat and it is on its way to UCSC this very moment.  We will be sending out the team photos shortly, and will be able to get some shots of us shredding with the new boat.  We're expecting delivery to be sometime in march which gives us plenty of time to practice for PCC's with it. 

Thanks again,

The UC Santa Cruz Sailing Team

We made it!

December 18, 2015
As of 11 AM today, we raised $9,760 through our campaign! This is incredible and we are so thankful to all of our donors. We couldn't have done it without your support, and we are incredibly excited about the ability we now have to get a new boat. This accomplishment will help future generations of UC Santa Cruz sailors be competitive and sail to their fullest ability.

Almost There

December 07, 2015

With 10 days left to go we are nearly at our goal!! We would like to thank all of our donors for making this possible and for helping us get a new boat.  With our progress so far and 10 days still left in our campaign, we would like to set a stretch goal of $12,500.  If we reach our stretch goal we can purchase a new race boat and a used boat to replace one of our old practice boats.  We could not have done this without all of your donations and are excited to push towards this new goal.  Here is a picture from a recent sunset practice.
