29th Annual Rose Bowl Regatta Day 2

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

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 two knots Saturday to seven or eight 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.
