Santa Barbara, Calif - The Cardinal continued its championship season for the fall this past weekend, traveling to Santa Barbara, CA and placing second in the North/South Regatta hosted by UCSB. This culmination event for the co-ed fall sailing season on the Pacific Coast decides the all-important scheduling order for teams in the Pacific Coast College Sailing Conference.

Wanting to travel east this spring to gauge its work against the strong East Coast teams, beating the other PCCSC teams at this event was of the utmost importance. Competing for the Cardinal in the varsity event was seniors Eddie Conrad and Carrie Denning in A division, senior Evan Brown and junior Kelly McKenna in B Division, freshman Cole Hatton and sophomore Peter Stemler in the single-handed C and D divisions respectfully. The depth of the Stanford team is a huge advantage in this four division regatta competed in FJs and Lasers.

Saturday morning brought a very light Southeasterly breeze for the twenty teams to compete in. A and C divisions got in two races a piece, in which the Cardinal had a third place and three first place finishes. Riding on the momentum of the strong start provided by their teammates, the B and D division sailors of Brown/McKenna and Stemler headed out in a dying breeze ready to add to the early lead. In very marginal conditions, each boat finished fourth in their race, which ended a long day of few races. Stanford was up by one point on the lone East Coast competitor Georgetown after day one.

A similar light southerly breeze greeted the sailors on Sunday morning as B and D divisions began racing. Brown and McKenna sailed well in their first three races, notching a first and two seconds for the Cardinal. Stemler had a fair start with a 3,6,4 in D division. A and C division finished their portion of the regatta on their next trip to the course area with three races each. Conrad and Denning had some tough competition in a division, finishing up with a 5,9,3 to put them in fourth in the top double-handed division.

Hatton capsized in his first race while he was winning, but he was able to fight back to a sixth place finish, followed by a second and another sixth to place him fourth in C division. In B division, Brown and McKenna ended their weekend with a second place finish, losing a tiebreaker to win the division. Stemler finished sixth in D division.

Also competing in Santa Barbara were three Cardinal JV teams. While no results were posted, it seemed likely that these dominant teams could have in fact competed in varsity, also beating the rest of the PCCSC along with their varsity teammates. The Stanford JV teams finished 1st, 3rd, and 4th overall of nineteen teams in the two division double-handed competition.

The Cardinal varsity team finished the short five-race regatta in second overall, behind only Georgetown. By beating out the rest of the PCCSC teams, Stanford seemingly cemented themselves as the team to beat in the conference.
