Wahine sailing team
victorious in California

The Hawaii women's sailing team notched a victory this past weekend at the Bryson Women's Intersectional in Redwood City, Calif.

Marin Diskant, Kili Chivers, Renee DeCurtis and Sarah Hitchcock helped UH win the A division. Jennifer Warnock, DeCurtis and Hitchcock also led the Wahine to a first-place finish in the B division.

The Wahine are No. 7 in the Sailing World magazine poll, and sail in Annapolis, Md., this weekend.

The UH coed team, ranked 11th, will compete in Berkeley, Calif., this weekend.

Bryan Lake of the coed team has qualified for the Intercollegiate Sailing Association's (ICSA) Men's Singlehanded North American Championships, Oct. 19-21, in Toronto.

The Wahine and coed teams are holding a fund-raiser, which starts tomorrow and runs through Oct. 9.

In a partnership with Leonard's Bakery, 15 percent of all sales at the Leonard's Jr. Malasada Wagon in the Kailua Daiei parking lot will go toward the sailing team.

All of the fall regattas that UH will participate in are on the mainland, and proceeds from the fund-raiser will go toward travel expenses and general team expenses.

Hawaii's Own
