UCSD Sailing braves the cold at the annual Mustang Open
The 2023 Mustang Open was, like every Mustang Open, an experience for the UCSD Sailing Team. Saturday saw challenging conditions for our sailors; seeing hail, rain, light wind, and the occasional “snowball” from fellow competitors. Despite challenging conditions and weather, the team enjoyed a great day of light sailing and team bonding. After the end of racing, UCSD Sailing attended the annual Mustang Open Spaghetti Dinner with sailing teams from across the west coast and had a great time. Sunday saw a more reliable day of sailing with wind filling in around noon. We had 22 races on Sunday, making for a highly competitive day in which many of our sailors scored very highly. UCSD Sailing ended up performing fantastically well, taking home 3rd place in the Varsity and Women’s division and 1st and 3rd place in JV.
