The Stanford coed and women's sailing teams competed in their final home regatta of the year over the weekend, hosted by the team along with the St. Francis Yacht Club on the city-front in San Francisco. For the seniors, this would be their final home regatta of their college sailing careers. For the rest of the team, it was another perfect regatta with big breeze to showcase their strengths among the 31 varsity teams and 18 JV teams in attendance.

Not being phased by the pressure of parents' weekend, the coed A division tandem of Edward Conrad '08 and Carrie Denning '08 walked away from the competition with a very impressive series totaling 42 points over 11 races. Also crewing in A division for the coed team when the breeze came on for Saturday afternoon was freshman Graham Todd. Also encouraged by her final parents' weekend start was women's senior A division skipper Evan Brown, sailing to second place in the highly competitive A division with crews Kelly McKenna '09 and Hannah Burroughs '11.

Sailing in B division for the coed team for his first Varsity start at the annual St. Francis Regatta was junior TJ Tullo with sophomore crew Leigh Hammel. Enjoying the breezy conditions synonymous with this event, the pair sailed well enough to win their division. They performed an act of sportsmanship by withdrawing from a race in which they failed to completely exonerate themselves for a foul, thus adding nearly 30 points to their score and putting them in third place in B division. Also sailing in her final home event was senior Sarah Schoknecht, crewing for junior Taylor Grimes on the Stanford women's team in B division. The pair had an up and down event by their own high standards, and finished the series 6th in their division.

The varsity teams brought their A game for the parents and friends in attendance to enjoy. The coed team won by nearly 30 points, and the women's team placed fourth, a mere 7 points out of second overall competing against all teams.

Not to be outdone by their teammates in the varsity event, Stanford's three JV teams performed superbly. For the first JV team, freshman Cole Hatton had the honor of sailing with senior crew Beth Hoover in her final home event. The pair finished first in A division, narrowly beating our their own teammates for the distinction. The first Cardinal JV team also finished first in B division with freshmen Ben Pedrick and Hayley Tobin sailing a consistent series. The first JV team finished first overall in the JV event.

The second JV team, led by the A division tandem of Peter Stemler '10 and Hannah Burroughs 11, finished second to their own teammates overall. The A division boat also finished second to the Hatton/Hoover combination. Juniors Cam Bell and Catherine Cu of the second JV team finished third in B division.

The third JV team rounded out the superb Cardinal outing with a third place overall finish. In A division, freshmen Graham Todd and Ale Lynberg placed a very impressive third, while in B division Megan Grimes with crews Mariana Beardsworth and Sam Courtney finished fourth.

The Cardinal sailors put forth a true team effort at this event, and will look to continue with the momentum gained through the result. This weekend the team will be traveling to Long Beach, CA for both the Team Race and Coed Pacific Coast Championships.
