San Francisco, Calif. - This year's St Francis Regatta drew a record 31 college sailing teams from across the country to sail in the legendary waters of San Francisco Bay this past week end. For the 13th year in a row, Stanford and St. Francis Yacht Club co-hosted the popular event.

Conditions were perfect for the two-day event. Both Saturday and Sunday were classic SF Bay conditions, with breeze building from 6-15 knots thru each day. Over the two days, 12 races were held in each division.

Sailing for Stanford, sophomores Emery Wager and Becca Levin made their first appearance in A-Division. The duo sailied a very consistent regatta, but ended up 3rd to UCI's Frank Tybor and USC sailor/Olympic hopeful Mikee Mitterling. In B-Division, freshman skipper Eddie Conrad and junior crew Anna Vu sailed a solid day Saturday, ending the day third in B. On Sunday, seniors Pete Deming and Lucy Horton took over B-Division for the Cardinal, ending the regatta with first place in B.

The Cardinal Coed Sailors spent the majority of the regatta in 2nd place overall, ahead of 4th-ranked USC. In the last set of B races, USC had a string of better finishes, to pull them three points ahead of Stanford.

Sailing for Stanford's 4-ranked Women's team, freshman Evan Brown and Mariana Beardsworth started in A-Division. Sophomores Caroline Young and Alexa Binns sailed B-Division. The Stanford Women were 7th overall after Saturday. On Sunday, Seniors Liz Rountree and Julie Pitts subbed into A-Division, and were able to better the women's overall performance to 5th overall.
