The Rose Bowl Regatta 2013 is starting to be rosy for the Stanford, not only on the football field but off the coast of Long Beach, as the Cardinal emerge as one of the contenders in the 28th edition of the renowned Californian New Year’s Day regatta.

They'll go into the last races Sunday in second place with 39 points, 13 behind College of Charleston (S.C.) followed by Eckerd College of St. Petersburg, Fla., 41; Roger Williams of Bristol, R.I, 42, and top-ranked Georgetown of Washington, D.C., 53. Defending champion Boston College is seventh at 59, behind Old Dominion at 56.

Stanford coach John Vandemoer said, 'It's great to be able to go to the football game and see our team win. We hope we can do the same. It played great defense.'

So did the Cardinal sailors.

'We didn't win any races,' Vandemoer said, 'but we sailed conservatively. With 30 teams you can't afford mistakes.'



Stanford's four sailors are all Southern Californians: Kevin Laube with crew Michelle Catanya and Kieran Chung with crew Haley Kirk.

As expected, the wind was light at 3-6 knots from southwest and the air temperature had chilled to the mid-50s by the time the day's racing ended with a colorful sunset at 5 o'clock. The boats returned to the docks at ABYC in darkness.

The colleges and high school Gold fleets are sailing two-person 13-foot CFJ dinghies off the Belmont Veterans Memorial Pier in the Long Beach outer harbor. The high school Silver fleet is racing inside Alamitos Bay. Each team has two crews that alternate after every two races.

The second and last day of racing will start at 11 a.m., conditions permitting. The pier will be open to spectators, with concessions and comfort stations available.



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