San Francisco, Calif. - Stanford Sailing, in conjunction with St. Francis Yacht Club hosted the 10th annual St. Francis Invitational regatta in San Francisco Bay off the city-front this weekend. This event has become the premier event for the spring sailing season on the west coast. Stanford's team dominated the twenty-eight teams that competed for top honors in the ten-race series.

On Saturday, heavy air and strong currents dominated the day. Six races were held in both a and B divisions. Sunday's four races per division were held in lighter air and strong current. Stanford fielded three teams, Stanford 1, Stanford 2 and Stanford Women. Showing his versatility in all conditions, sophomore skipper David Phillips and junior crew Kara Sweeney dominated B Division, taking 1st place with a phenomenal 10 point lead. This victory, along with Ted Conrads' '03 and Amy Halvorsen's '05 strong 4th place finish in A Division lead Stanford 1 to an overall victory in the regatta. Finishing 2nd and third overall were USC and UC Berkeley.

Just 10 points behind Phillips/Sweeney for 2nd in B Division is Stanford 2's Peter Deming'04 and Lauren Gross '05. Along with A Division partner Dave Kenny's '03 and Jess Gray's '04 5th in A, Stanford 2 finished 4th overall.

The Stanford Women's team was lead by the dominating women's team B-division boat of Ashley Frush '04 and Jenais Zarlin '04/Liz Shearer '04. Frush skippered to 6th in B Division. Holding their own in a tough division, Jen Porter '04 and Sarah Zuckerman '03 were 13th in A Division. The Stanford Women finished a solid 10th, beating all other Women's teams competing.

This weekend's victories put the Cardinal Sailors in a solid position going into the last three weeks of the regular season. Next weekend features trips back east for both the Stanford co-eds and women (US Merchant Marine Academy and Brown Univ, respectively). On April 20-21st, the women will compete in the Pacific Coast Champs at USC. The following weekend, the Co-eds will compete in their PCC's at U Hawai'i. Both teams need to finish top two to qualify for the National Championships to be held in June at U Hawaii.
