The UCLA women's varsity and junior varsity eights set course records in victories at the Pacific Coast Rowing Championships Sunday on Lake Natoma, but the men's varsity eight, which had won in 1987, '88 and '89, fell to the University of Washington for the second year in a row. The varsity women broke faster than planned and established open-water dominance early.

When former UCLA rower Amika Maran set out to start a rowing program for teenagers in 1995, she ran into a significant problem: She couldn't recruit enough girls to fill a shell--and she only needed eight. So Maran enlisted the help of some of UCLA's better-looking male rowers. "I was student teaching at Santa Monica High School ... at the time and I was trying to get girls to join, so I brought in some of the cute guys from the rowing teams to talk about the sport," Maran said.

A U.S. woman rower hopes to become the first competitor to win gold medals in two events at a world championship regatta this weekend. Kris Karlson, 25, a medical student from Weston, Conn., will compete in both the single and double lightweight sculling events at the World Rowing Championships here. Karlson will defend her world championship singles title--won last year at Milan, Italy--today against strong entries from the Netherlands, Belgium, West Germany, Canada and Italy.

Julie Lewczyk bought into the belief that college is the time to expand one's horizons. Lewczyk began pushing the envelope at Troy High, so she was ready for something especially fulfilling at Palo Alto. Lewczyk had hoped to join the powerful Stanford soccer team as a freshman, but that didn't work out. An athlete without a sport for the first time she could remember, Lewczyk, quite naturally, turned to . . . crew? "I know, it's not exactly the first sport people think of," she said.

Kelly Salonites, the women's crew coach at UCLA, was not having a great morning. It was barely daybreak at the university's Marina del Rey boathouse, and Salonites had just told her team that, because of tight money, they would not race at Oxnard that weekend. Sending 35 women, plus boats, there for two days would cost several thousand dollars. Now, as she took her varsity women for a workout in two boats of four rowers each, the engine on her coaching launch threatened to quit.

Of the first four women to move into the Downtown Women's Center Residence that opened officially last week, one was 75 years old and had been spending her nights at the all-night movies; one transferred from a Skid Row hotel where she had been living in terror ever since all her belongings, including her treasured television, were stolen, and two were essentially homeless, taking temporary shelter with friends.

Joe Kloiber and his 10-man crew are building more than a hotel for some women of Skid Row, although that in itself is a feat. Safe and sanitary accommodations for women in that sector are as scarce as homes for the homeless in general, and the Downtown Women's Center residential project at 333 S. Los Angeles St. will be the first permanent housing for women in the area when it is completed in a few months. Rarer yet, though, is the good will that Kloiber, a foreman for R .W. Stanhope Co.

A glimpse of stocking? How shocking. A trace of lace? Out of place on Savile Row, until now. Hit hard by the U.S. recession and declining fortunes of the British aristocracy, the gentlemen tailors of Savile Row are looking for new clients. One firm has taken the radical step of opening its first department for women, sending little shivers of apprehension down the genteel spines of more tradition-bound competitors.

It is Wednesday on Skid Row and Estrella Garcia, about to be homeless because she can't pay the rent for her tiny shared room, is back for a third visit to Safe Harbor Women's Clinic. Each visit has been for what Garcia describes as "female problems," says clinic founder Pam Shuler, a nurse practitioner. Each proves dramatically more complex. "She came here for gynecological problems, which we took care of," Shuler says, "but we noticed she was very, very, very depressed.
