Every year, folks in cold climates watch the Rose Parade on TV and decide to move to Southern California.
The annual Rose Bowl Regatta for high school and college students kicks it up a notch by actually inviting the young sailors here for a weekend of sunny sailing.
It was 70 degrees, the sand was warm and the water was inviting at Long Beach’s Granada launch ramp beach, where teams set up basecamp. In past years, the teams were centralized on the Belmont Pier, but this change was a welcome one.
The air temperatures at home for the top three college teams competing were: New York’s Fordham University was 17 degrees, Washington DC’s Georgetown University was 22 and Boston College was a chilly 14. No word yet if any East Coast student sailors are transferring, but Wilson gold fleet skipper, senior Trent Turigliatto, announced he will be attending University of Miami in the fall

The following chart shows the relative rank of the teams as of the race indicated. Note that the races are ordered by number, then division, which may not represent the order in which the races were actually sailed.
The first place team as of a given race will always be at the top of the chart. The spacing from one team to the next shows relative gains/losses made from one race to the next. You may hover over the data points to display the total score as of that race.
