2018: The Year of the Sailor Sailors are really good at signaling to other sailors that we participate in the same activity. That jacket with the fluorescent yellow hood, the 505 sticker on your roof box, the burgee in your window, or the beer koozie with the sailmaker logo - it’s an insider’s wink from the person with green (starboard) and red (port) logos on their shoes to the other person in the faded Mount Gay Rum hat. It says, “Hey, we’re in the same club.” I’m not against this - I do it, and it is fun. Here’s the thing: this stuff is totally lost on people who don’t already sail, and I’m not sure that’s a good thing. I have a firmly held belief that, though it has spent a lot of its history celebrating exclusivity, the dominant culture in sailing is only trending further in the direction of accessibility and inclusiveness. This signaling we do isn’t actively exclusive, but it’s not inclusive either. My challenge for you in 2018 might be optimistic, if not a little naive... I’m going for it nonetheless. Let’s start a revolution of sail. To do this, we can’t just nod knowingly to other sailors and save our sea stories for the yacht club. We have to start by consolidating our passion for the sport and the things we all share, and then we have to evangelize a little bit. I’ll bet your close friends know you sail. But how many acquaintances or strangers on the street do? We can raise awareness about sailing in the eyes of the non-sailing public by more blatantly identifying as sailors. That raised profile may eventually turn into better attendance at a rendezvous or regatta; it might foster more and better marine services; and it plainly means a more vibrant community. Viewed from outside, we shouldn’t be segmented - a sailor is a sailor is a sailor. Within the community, it’s important to be yourself, pursue your own interests, and sail the way that’s fun for you. That someday-sailor is already going to find it hard to differentiate between a traditional racing sailor and R2AK competitor, between an Opti sailor and a cruising family. These broad strokes are seldom something I perpetuate, but in this context, it’s perfect. When we combine forces, there are a lot more of us than you’d think. We have some templates for this: a marathon runner’s 26.2 bumper sticker, wearing a Seahawks jersey on Friday before a big game, or even some of the recent political wear (MAGA hats or I’m-With-Her T-shirts). All of these combine personal pride with something that is recognizable and shared among the participants, fans, or followers. I’m encouraging you to find your own way to let the world know you sail. Maybe we’ll come up with a sweet idea soon... You know why this works? Because sailing is fun. And because sailors are cool, adventurous, and interesting. Further, I think we’re proud to be sailors. It’s Boat Show season around the Pacific Northwest, which I love - new boats, new gear, new energy and, you guessed it, new people interested in sailing. Some of them will come to the show driven by their own curiosity. Others would almost certainly come if encouraged to do so by a friend, neighbor, or coworker. If only that someday-sailor knew who to begin the conversation with... This is why you gotta wear your TEAM SAIL jersey on Friday before you’re going sailing! When I think about the boat shows through the eyes of a newcomer, sailing looks like a tiny niche. In reality, sailors make up a much larger population of the show-goers than the boats on display would indicate, especially if you consider how many people that power boat today first experienced the water from an El Toro or an FJ or a T-bird. People who no longer go to school still sport their UW or Wazzu gear. Why can’t once-upon-a-time sailors do the same. Maybe they can. And I, for one, can’t see any reason why they shouldn’t. I wish you a splendid 2018. I hope you sail more than last year. I hope you come to the boat show and stop by to say hello (we’re in booth West 7)! Mainly, I hope you proclaim your passion for sailing to non-sailors. Don’t let anyone forget how many of us there are, how fun sailing is, and how much more unites us as sailors than anything that might divide us. I’ll see you on the water!

Green Flash Howdy Joe, Here’s some real footage of the green flash! What’s amazing is that this was taken on the Kona coast of the Big Island. It was a very rare meteorological event because Kona almost always has high humidity that will never produce a Green Flash. Every time that we visit Kona, or any ocean for that matter, I watch for the Green Flash. When we stayed in Pui-Pu on southern Kauai, there was a Green Flash every night. It was very dry humidity. I saw one from offshore in Baja California. Again, very dry humidity. Did you know that the longest recorded Green Flash was 42 minutes? I believe that it was filmed from an airplane at the South Pole.

Letters Round the County and Youth Sailing

LED Lighting

Hi Joe, I very much enjoyed the 48° North article about the Round the County race. I wasn’t sure if you are aware of the fundraiser associated with the race, the “Youth Challenge.” Seven organizations, including Sail Sand Point, were beneficiaries. They raised $9,100 which was then shared with organizations that run NW youth sailing programs. Thank you Sail Orcas and Ocras Island Yacht Club! Mary Anne Ward Sail Sand Point

Dr. LED High-Quality Marine LED Products you can count on! Designed in the USA and built to last.

Mojo Risin’ Hey Joe, As always, July’s issue was a terrific read, full of good stuff and ‘wow, I didn’t know that—!’ I was particularly struck by the impression that you’d gotten your mojo back. Your “Extra Day in the Week” editorial was positive and appreciative of even little gifts. I particularly liked your closing line, “...give me an hour with the sails up at sunset and I always get more than I expect.” Best wishes for happy times on the water, Chris Minard

Featured Boats at the Shows Scamp (also on display 8’, 9’, 10’, 12’ 14’ 16’ and 17’ sailboats) Just under 12 feet in length, the Scamp boasts an unusual combination of features that give her the unique ability to explore waters too shallow for a larger boat, while retaining most of a bigger boat’s comforts and capabilities. An offset centerboard opens up the cockpit and an 8’ 3” sleeping area, while 172 pounds of water ballast provide exceptional stability. A pair of grounding skegs on her flat bottom keep Scamp perfectly upright when landing on a beach or when the tide goes out. See Gig Harbor Boatworks’ ad on page 55

J/97E J/97E is the first J in over two decades, under 32’, to combine headroom and family cruising accommodations in a high performance, easily driven hull.

Catalina 425 (along with Catalina Capri 22, 445 and 315) Aesthetically, this boat has evolved from traditional Catalina models. The style is bold and contemporary, incorporating a large, comfortable cockpit and excellent ergonomics that are Catalina hallmarks. Catalina’s trademark lead keels absorb impact for safety and require less maintenance than other materials. All systems are designed following the recommendations and standards of the ABYC and IMCI to earn the highest rating of Category A - Unlimited Offshore. “Boat of the Year,” Domestic, Cruising World 2017. See Windworks’ ad on page 10 Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 440 (also on display SO 349-CenturyLink and SO 419-S Lake Union) West Coast Debut! The first of the “Next Generation” Sun Odyssey models features a hard chine “skow bow” hull w/ twin rudders. An innovative “cathedral” rig for less weight aloft and a lowered gooseneck w/ boom angled up. Her interior features true queen rectangular berths, “French” doors leading into the master cabin, a very gentle companionway, and the largest chart table in her class. The most innovative feature of the new SO 440 however has to be the inclined side decks. From the twin helm stations one walks forward up the inclined side decks (ramps so to speak). See Marine Servicenter’s ads on page 15 and 96

Beneteau Oceanis 45 Oceanis 45 keeps with the Beneteau tradition. Built to combine safety, luxury and performance, the Oceanis 45’s distinctive hard chine promotes stability and increases interior space.

In Anacortes, Andy Schwenk of Northwest Rigging fame announced the arrival of Jay Butler of Butler Rigging. The two have formed an alliance that allows for a greater range of rig services and on-site rigging capabilities with the mobile “shop in a box.” Jay Butler, a 40-year veteran of the rigging business and America’s Cup specialty rigger, has recently moved up from San Diego, to settle in Anacortes. “My wife and I love it here, and it was time for a change. When Andy and I met we discussed forming a partnership, we each have our specialties. I have a mobile shop and can do rod rigging and Andy’s team does a lot of custom rigging, furlers and deck upgrades.” The two owners still operate their businesses separately but have agreed to work as an alliance rather than direct competitors. Andy Schwenk knows that in a small town like Anacortes, businesses fair better in collaboration. For information, contact Andy at NWRigging.com or (360) 293-1154, or call Jay Butler at (510) 672-2639

Second Wave sails again, now in Gig Harbor! You missed it, we missed it, and now it’s coming back. Second Wave was always the marine consignment store with soul, and its absence has been deeply felt by the marine community since the doors closed in Fremont four years ago. Opening in Gig Harbor in March 2018, Second Wave at the Boatyard will offer a fresh spin on the well-loved marine consignment model. Second Wave helps both people getting into boating and getting out of boating, by making equipment more affordable and providing the community a method to re-utilize parts and gear that would otherwise end up in the dumpster. The location is different, but these things stay the same: knowledgeable and trustworthy staff and management, a supportive atmosphere where your sea stories or boating information are as valued as your purchase, and a mindboggling array of great boating gear.

Lowtide Eddystone Lighthouse was depicted on the English penny periodically from 1860 until 1970.

Maritime Trivia by

B ryan H enry

George Meade, U.S. Army engineer and general who led Union forces to victory at Gettysburg in the Civil War, was previously a lighthouse engineer and built many lighthouses in Florida and in other states.

The world’s first revolving light was installed at Carlsten in Sweden in 1781.

The French erected the first Canadian lighthouse in 1740 at Louisburg on Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia.

More than 20,000 Americans have been killed in hurricanes over the past 150 years.

A lighthouse in the Netherlands has been converted into luxurious vacation apartments.

Our Mainsail Why it’s different Actually, sails are very similar.

Our cruising spinnaker. Why you need one.

Sailmakers mostly buy their cloth from similar sources, use the same basic techniques, and frequently the same designs. But there is one major thing that separates our sails from theirs.

The wind. It’s fickle. From a stiff breeze to a whisper. In less time than it takes to say “What happened to the wind?” Our radial head drifter was designed specifically for light air performance. Plus, it sells at a price that leaves the other guys whistlin' Dixie.

The price. The Lee mainsail. A rugged, well built sail, big on performance, small on price.

Our genoa. Why it lasts so long.

Details. We care about 'em. Things like panel reinforcing at the clew, head and tack. A tape reinforced clew cringle. Rat-tailed boltropes. Triple stitched seams where necessary. Leather chafe protectors at head, tack and clew. Vinyl coated stainless steel luff wire.

The Lee Cruising Spinnaker. A great sail at a price that won’t leave you gasping. For a free brochure or an estimate, contact your nearest Lee Sails Representative.

The first hurricane plotted on a U.S. Weather Service chart was a storm located offshore between Jacksonville, Florida, and Savannah, Georgia, September 28, 1874. A Category 1 hurricane of the SaffirSimpson scale is one with winds of 74 to 94 mph. A Category 5, the highest, is a hurricane with winds in excess of 154 mph. Florida has had more hurricane landfalls than any other state. Since the recording of hurricanes began in 1851, the U.S. mainland has had about 285 strikes, 120 of them in Florida. Texas is number two, with more than 65; Louisiana is third with 54, and North Carolina ranks fourth, with 52. In the Atlantic Ocean, hurricanes often begin as small clusters of thunderstorms off the west coast of Africa, some of which are the remnants of Saharan dust storms. In August 1954, Hurricane Carol blew down the Old North Church’s bell tower in Boston, from which warning of British troops arriving was given from April 18-19, 1775. For the first time since 1888, a weather event—Hurricane Sandy—shut down the New York Stock Exchange for two days in 2014. A riptide isn’t a tide but is a fastmoving current—or rip current. The December 26, 2004 earthquake that struck in the Indian Ocean near Indonesia caused a tsunami that reached 18 countries.

The Lee genoa or jib. Priced right and designed for durability.

A tsunami can tower more than 100 feet high.

Rogue waves remain something of a mystery. Long believed to be a myth or an exaggeration, they haven't been the subject of any kind of serious in-depth research - until now. This book makes rigorous marine science accessible to all, exploring the causes and frequency of rogue waves, and the reasons why some waves become killer monsters. Wi t h a n e c d o t e s , h i s t o r i c a l reports and objective analysis, all illustrated with evocative and rare photographs, Michel Olagnon's

ground breaking book, Rogue Waves, Anatomy of a Monster, is a definitive contribution to our understanding of this much-feared phenomenon. Amongst other questions in the book, he examines: • How are rogue waves created? • How do they live and die? • Are there different types? • Do they appear from nowhere? • Can ships and boats cope with them?

• What lessons can be learned from past encounters? • Will meteorologists be able to provide warnings? Authoritative but highly readable, this is a fascinating and unique study into rogue waves, offering insights for all readers, but crucial advice for those who might encounter this dangerous phenomenon at sea. Rogue Waves, Anatomy of a Monster, by Michel Olagnon, $30. 00.

The DockStar Smart Thrusters are mounted outside the hull at the front of the bow and behind the stern. This provides for the longest possible moment arm yielding maximum turning torque. The ability to have both a bow and a stern thruster provides twice the torque and allows for maneuvers not possible with a bow thruster alone, such as turning 180° in place, “parallel parking” and securing the boat firmly to the dock during boarding and de-boarding. By utilizing wireless control, the Smart Thruster re q u i re s n o c o n t ro l wiring. By having its own internal rechargeable

lithium batteries, there is no power wiring. With no control wiring and no power wiring it can be completely portable allowing for a simple and affordable mounting scheme. With full wireless control, the Smart Thruster can be controlled from

anywhere on the boat, or even on the dock. The transmitter can be configured to conveniently control both the bow and the stern thruster from a single unit. The Smart Thruster can typically be installed by securing the T-track and stainless tube with two screws at the bottom of the tube and two at the top, all above the waterline, No need to haul-out the boat, modify the hull, add a tunnel, install batteries, or add power lines and control wires. The Smart Thruster is always retracted out of the water when underway (or can be quickly removed) so there is no drag. Now sailboaters can finally add thrusters to their boat without ruining performance! Check: www.dockstarthrusters.com

Grunt! boat cleaner is an environmentally responsible product which is free from oxalic, muriatic and hydrochloric acids. Grunt is specifically formulated to remove common, “hard to shift” yellow/brown waterline stains, rust staining from metal fittings, exhaust staining, bird lime, lime scale and many other deeply ingrained stains from fiberglass. Grunt! penetrates into the pores of the gelcoat, gently neutralizes and then absorbs the staining without affecting the gelcoat in any way. The stain can then be simply washed off with a sponge and water. Check: https://gruntboatcleaner.co.uk

Traditional wind indicators tend to be fragile and easily bent or broken.

The Artist’s View – Secrets of the Salish Sea Sketches and story by Larry Eifert

If I were Mother Nature, designer of all things wild, I would have felt proud completing the western grebe – a job well-done. First, it’s just a beautiful creature; but its parts combine to make an amazing machine. That bright red eye helps see underwater and giant feet that look like feathery flippers allow it to move faster than fish can swim. Those funny over-sized feet also make it possible to run OVER water and even walk upright on shore like a Dapper-Dan in a black and white tux. Then there is this double-jointed neck that curves backward and can act like a spear. It bends back and – wham, into a fleeing fish. This is quite the bird, and it’s here right now for you to see in the Salish Sea. Look for these gregarious birds in quiet bays. They’ll be in flocks, almost never alone. During breeding season in spring and summer,

western grebes are found on distant freshwater wetlands north and east of our coast. In the fall, they fly south and west to salt water, often during the night. Once they get to the Salish Sea or other warmer lakes and bays along the West Coast, they congregate in large flocks, sometimes in the thousands. I once saw western grebes on Clear Lake in California, a mass of birds from shore to shore covering many miles of water. During spring courtship, these birds are known for their elaborate rituals and displays. Pairs react simultanteously to some private signal (a wink?) and both rise out of the water and run together, side by side, in a flutter of feet defying gravity. Having spent their energy, they ‘land’ in the water again and act as if nothing has happened. Well, it probably hasn’t, yet.

When Chasing

The Breaking Point

what you

Love Brings Challenges,

on and off the water

B y Kate Shaner

I

’ve always loved to dance. I started ballet class at a young age, but my parents quickly discovered a problem: I was good at it. To prevent choosing a path toward becoming a professional dancer (a notoriously short and strenuous career), my parents heavily supported my interest in sailing, which started at Sail Sand Point in Seattle. This maneuver has backfired rather spectacularly on them in the form of an Olympic sailing campaign. Ballet and Olympic sailing careers are remarkably similar. They both come with an expiration date, determined by the length of time it takes to break your body to the point you can no longer perform. They require exorbitant amounts of money and pay very little. But the last similarity I think is most important: both dancers and sailors

put our whole selves into doing what we love. The action itself is our reward. My life now consists of training blocks—up to two weeks of nonstop sailing with coaches and teammates— and international competitions. I’ve adjusted to the travel, and am learning the logistical balancing act of managing equipment on three continents; but a question I still ask myself daily is, ‘why?’ Why am I doing this? I stay because I come up with better reasons every time I look. This summer, I competed at Kieler Woche for the first time. The city of Kiel in Germany hosts an annual three-week long sailing festival, open to all classes and sizes of boats—Optis, J/70s, 505s, Olympic classes, Paralympic boats, tall ships—and the thousands of sailors that fill them. www.48North.com

January 2018

Among the Olympic classes is the 49er FX skiff, the class I’ve been pouring myself into. This is the same skiff hull that the men compete in, but with two female crew and a slightly smaller sailplan. My sailing partner for most of this year, Caroline Atwood, and I started our event strong, with top ten results on the first day. The second day was more difficult—we struggled to keep positive focus and attitude through difficult conditions, but clung tightly to a position with a chance of qualifying for the medal race. Day three dawned cold and wet with a stiff offshore breeze, later reported as 25-28 knots. The 49er and FX Gold fleets dragged our feet on shore. None wanted to be the first to launch. We put our wetsuits on first, then our sails up slowly, one 43


by one, silently daring each other to follow. As we launched, a few unfortunate teams capsized in the harbor, sinking their masts into the mud. We had our first capsize of the day during a jibe on our downwind tuning run. Skiffs are difficult to jibe in breezy conditions because they need to be kept on a plane to be kept stable. Ideally, you enter your turn at full speed and step cleanly into the boat. The tiller feels weightless in your fingers, the leech of the main hangs in suspense, the world goes quiet for a moment, then you run to your trapeze, bringing the bow up to the proper angle to fill the kite. However, if you slow down, the mainsail will load and unbalance the boat. I hit a patch of short, square chop just in the wrong place as we stepped across centerline. We righted the boat and

headed to the starting line, where the men’s warning signal had just gone up. We watched their start, and looked upwind at the black walls of breeze coming sporadically down the course. Some days skiffs require precision and focus, sometimes they need a full-on Columbia Gorge ‘send it’ attitude.This day demanded both. Through our first two races, we watched the best teams upwind and tried to copy their trim and steering techniques and began to pace with them. Downwind we capitalized on our speed to stay with the fleet. During the third race we made a critical mistake. To stay on a 49er in lots of breeze sailing downwind, you put your back foot in a strap on the back corner of the boat, similar to what you might have seen on windsurfing

boards. We mistimed a bear away with a puff, the bow dug in, and the boat capsized to leeward. My foot stuck in the foot strap as I swung and twisted a full 180 degrees around it. I must have screamed, because Caroline called over a rescue boat right away, and I was whisked off to a medical tent. The medical staff decided I needed an x-ray and put me in an ambulance with a Slovenian 49er skipper who had the exact same injury. We quickly became friends, shivering in the back of an ambulance together. At the hospital we were greeted by the Angry German Lady. Her hair was cropped short, she wore a suit like a flight attendant, and she wanted to know how these crazy foreigners in wetsuits smelling of piss and saltwater expected to pay their medical expenses. Our conversation went something like this: “This number you give me,” she said, pointing to Caroline’s phone number I’d written on a piece of paper, “it no work. How you pay? Who else you contact?” I offered to have her call my mother in the US, but she shook her head angrily. “My wallet is on the beach. The girl I sail with will come, she will bring my wallet and I will pay you. I have international insurance. I can send my bills there.” “No. You Americans think you have international insurance! It doesn’t

We maybe need 80 euro, we do not know how much your treatment will be.” “I do not have enough cash. I have a card. My friend will bring it.” “We don’t take card! We need cash! How you pay us! How you buy bread, milk, eggs?!” “… with a credit card?” I offered. At this point, exasperated, the Angry German Lady tried a different approach. “Who is the leader of your organization? Who send you here, who buy plane tickets?” Confused, I tried, “Malcolm Page?” - US Sailing’s Chief of Olympic Sailing. “Yes. Your leader. Does he have money to pay me?” Feeling it would be hopeless to explain that Malcolm was on a different continent and therefore unable to give her cash, I said no. “Ok. You get your treatment, but we need money,” she said, pinching her lips and rubbing the fingers of one hand together. “You have anything here?” I came straight from the water, and the most valuable thing on me was my trapeze harness. “You see that purple thing? It’s worth a lot of money and I need it to sail. You keep it, and when my friend comes we will get cash and come back.” The Angry German Lady looked at my harness, a sopping wet and smelly pile of canvas on a chair, rolled her eyes and walked out. She reached Caroline www.48North.com

on the phone and said something along the lines of, “you want your girlfriend? You bring cash.” All of this ‘covfefe’ ended up being over a 55-euro hospital bill. Two flights, four wheelchairs, three x-rays, and a CT scan later, I was diagnosed with a broken foot and given a boot and instructions to sit still. I am terrible at sitting still. This tale may not sound like a ringing endorsement for skiffs or sailing in general; and you may be asking why anyone should encourage children to race skiffs, or anything high performance, when they risk injury or extortion by angry health care workers. My answer today is this: I sat still as instructed as long as I could muster, but if I hadn’t been able to get back on a skiff soon thereafter, I would have gone insane. I love the challenge of the FX, I love that it keeps my mind and body fully engaged. I’ve learned so much this year, about sailing and about myself, and I want to get up every morning to keep learning. This fall brought me, fully healed, to three more international competitions, which included a chance to race in Japan for the first time. I have a new sailing partner and renewed energy for our Olympic campaign and all things skiff sailing.

sail trim. It is cat-rigged, and you have to rake the rig to adjust the leech of the mainsail: rake back when going upwind so you can sheet hard without closing off the leech, rake it forward downwind so you can have some leech tension while still easing the sheet a lot. There are twingers on the headstay so you can induce bend into the rig if you want to flatten the main out.

Simon Miles 48° North Interview

by

Joe Cline

At 29 years old, Simon Miles has worked on the build team of two America’s Cup programs, he sailed two Worlds in two months last fall, and he makes a living helping to turn Paul Bieker’s design projects into carbon reality. 48°N: What was your involvement in sailing when you were growing up? Simon Miles: I grew up in West Seattle. My dad was kind of a boat builder type, and he owned a 50’ wooden tugboat; that was our “yacht” during my childhood. He kept it on a mooring in front of his house on Colvos Passage all summer, and we had a lot of fun cruising that boat. When I was in sixth grade, our class trip was three days sailing on the Adventuress. I decided that I wanted to know how to sail for that trip, so I could understand what was happening when we got out there. I started taking classes and sailing dinghies at Green Lake through the Seattle Parks Department. I ended up really liking it and wanting to sail more, and joined the Seattle Yacht Club dinghy race team. After a few years, I started sailing keelboats. I went to the NW School of Wooden Boat Building in Port Hadlock in 20082009 and moved to Port Townsend about five years ago. Other than the motivation to learn to sail, what do you remember about your trip on “Adventuress”? I had a great time. I was all about 46

the boat, and was so excited about sailing on this big, powerful sailboat in places I had been boating my whole life. The problem was that the trip was supposed to be more of a class-building event... I had to write a report about the trip, and my report was all about sailing and made no mention of my classmates. I drew a free-hand map of the central sound and went all out to make a cool report, and I got a C or something! We first met at the Wooden Boat Festival, you were sailing a rudderless catamaran. What’s that boat all about? It’s modeled off of a traditional rowing catamaran from the Catalàn region of Spain. They were fishing boats, and people started putting sails on them. In the 1940s, a designer created a one-design based on this type of boat that became the Patìn class. Originally, they had a steering oar, and at some point they decided it was faster to not have an oar in the water. The rudderless steering works because there is a lot of rocker in the hulls. You move your weight fore-andaft along wooden planks connecting the hulls to make large course changes. Small course changes are made with January 2018

How did you wind up with the Patìn? This boat was built in the early 80s (hull number near 2000). It was purchased new by an art dealer in Chicago, who also had a trimaran, called Humdinger, designed by Paul Bieker and built by Russell Brown here in Port Townsend. Through the build process, he and Russell became good friends. He left the Patìn to Russell when he passed. It sat in his garage in the midwest for several years afterwards, because Russell couldn’t figure out a good time to get it. He made a deal with me that if I picked it up, I could be half-owner. A few years back, I picked up the Patìn on a road trip with a friend that also involved going to the Volvo Ocean Race stopover in Newport and going for a sail on the Riptide 41, Blue, in Milwaukee! What were your first few sails on the Patìn like? Was it sloppy? I think we figured it out pretty quickly. The first time we sailed it was in really light air. It’s difficult to maneuver in the light stuff because it’s all about the center of effort of the sail plan versus the center of leeway resistance in the hulls. The feedback is weak for all of these variables in light air. We managed to tack the boat, jibing

was a little harder. For being so narrow, it is surprisingly stable. It does heel, but it feels controlled. It’s easy to fly a hull for an extended period of time. It’s cool that in retrieving the Patìn, you got to sail on the Riptide 41, a Bieker design, because you’re building another Bieker Riptide design, right? It’s a Riptide 25, and it’s basically a camp-cruiser sportboat. It was designed in the same year as the Riptide 35 Mk II, Longboard, so it’s like a mini version of that boat. It has water ballast, a large sail plan, and it has a super long, high aspect rudder. I commissioned the design, but for various reasons the project wound up on the back burner for a few years. Recently, my friend, Brent Campbell, decided to build a Riptide 25 too. So last winter and spring, he and our pal, Colin Dunphy, started coming up to my shop on weekends. Together, we made flat panels for two boats - a total of 14 panels of foam and carbon. These create the structure inside the boat. Since then, life got busy with other work projects again, but we’re on the cusp of building a deck tool (mold). I think the deck parts will be easier to store than hulls would be during the remainder of construction. Building the tool should take about three weeks to be ready to take a part off of it. It’s great having Brent as a part of the project, helping out and sharing costs with tooling. I will still build highly engineered parts, like the keel fins and the rudder posts, on my own. What’s a hopeful arc for the completion of these projects. For a long time, I told people I wanted to be sailing this boat by my 30th birthday, which is coming up in August. I’m thinking that’s not going to happen at this point. If we can get a deck tool going soon, I think it’s still realistic we could splash in about a year. What is your relationship with Paul Bieker like, with regard to this project and otherwise? When I went to the boat school, we built a Bieker-designed power boat called the PT Skiff. Russell Brown was a guest instructor that year, and the PT Skiff is now a kit he sells at his business.

I was lucky to have this opportunity to work with both Russell and Paul, as well as Paul’s design partner, Eric Jolley. Once that project was over, which was before boat school was finished, Paul approached me with the opportunity to go work at Core Builders in Anacortes on the BMW Oracle Racing America’s Cup trimaran project. So, I dropped out of boat school to go work on that. It was the right choice for me, for sure; a real crash course. I was there for about a year, until the America’s Cup in Valencia. Most of what I ended up working on at Core Builders was the wing sail. At the time, and maybe still, it was the largest wing ever made. The amount of chopping and channeling that was done on that thing, and how nice it turned out in the end - it was a real testament to the builders. There were as many as 80 of us working on that project.

Just a couple of our

Show Specials!

No wonder you developed a friendship and working relationship with Bieker. Yes, and pretty soon thereafter, he started pushing other jobs toward me. This happened so much that, after a time, I quit my job and started my own business, essentially to make parts for him. That is still the primary part of my business. In slower times, I have taken other jobs that Paul wasn’t involved in, but the really fun stuff is usually the stuff that he’s designed. Are there other well-known Bieker projects that you’ve been involved in? I built the rudders and cassettes for the Riptide 41, Blue. I built the dagger boards for Fujin, the 53’ catamaran. Those things are like 12’ or 13’ long, and they’re C-shaped. They create a fair amount of lift, I think I heard 30% of the total displacement. I built a 24’ ocean row boat for an attempt to row from Japan to San Francisco; have spent a lot of time on the power catamaran that Gordy Cole built as his commuter from Skyline Marina to Blakely Island; and have built a number of parts and components for the Shilshole 27, which I think we might see on the water sometime this spring. My most recently completed project was a new rudder for Alex Simanis’ Evelyn 32, Poke and Destroy. Paul www.48North.com

designed that for their upcoming Pac Cup. It’s the first rudder I’ve built with the double curve on the trailing edge. You didn’t have experience working with carbon fiber before you went to work for Core Builders. Do you think that people can reasonably experiment with carbon fiber at home? It can be treated in the same way that fiberglass is for the hobbyist or home boat builder. It’s just a fabric that you set in resin. In that context, does it lay up much heavier than how we normally think of

carbon fiber: super light and super stiff? Well, that’s kind of a loaded question. There are times when you could just use a brush and wet out some carbon fiber to repair something or laminate something. There are other times when you need to vacuum consolidate it. There are times when resin-infusion might make a lot of sense. There are some parts that can only be built using pre-preg, which is a special type of resin that’s already in the cloth. So, it is accessible to the amateur builder in some ways. But there’s a lot of processing nuances for some of the more technical applications. If

I

t seems like we’ve been sailors forever. We began sailing in college and shortly after we married (37 years ago!) we bought our first sailboat. Thirty years and 5 sailboats later, we were sailing a 48’ semi-custom beauty, but thought we might be ready for a change. A few years earlier, we had tied up alongside a Selene 43 trawler. I admit that when we went to look at trawlers we were afraid sailing friends might see us, but it immediately felt right. Selenes are efficient boats that are built with the quality of our sailboat, with well-found systems and high levels of craftsmanship; boats that we can trust in an open ocean or inland waters. What we have found since going “to the other side” has amazed us. • We see a lot more of the Pacific Northwest’s spectacular scenery and wildlife than we ever did before. Having visibility from the flybridge, from the comfort of the pilothouse or salon translates into more whale and bear sightings. • It is easier to make long passages and at the end of the day we arrive rested and not tired from being tossed about. • Our friends and family enjoy SaltHeart as much as we do. There is one consistent message we hear from everyone we have aboard: “It’s the trip of a lifetime!” The bottom line is that we have no regrets. We still have sailing friends, but our days of pushing an aluminum stick upwind are over. With the Selene, we can cruise in comfort in all seasons. When we looked at other trawlers and powerboats we never found one that offered everything we found in our Selene. SaltHeart is our ship of a lifetime for our trip of a lifetime. Dean & Theresa

you have to build a tiller, for example, there’s a threshold that you might cross where even if it wasn’t engineered, it is strong enough because you added extra carbon. But if weight savings are going to be realized, you need an engineering drawing and an engineered part. That’s where you probably wouldn’t want to experiment and figure it’ll be alright when things like orientation of cloth or void content are important. I learn stuff every day, and I’ve been doing this full time for eight years. What do you love about the sailing scene in Port Townsend? Port Townsend Bay is just a beautiful sailing venue. There’s usually good wind and there’s flat water and lots of current. I sailed on Sparkle for a couple of years - that’s a classic boat. It was so fun, and there were other classic boats to race against. This year, you sailed world championships in the Thunderbird 26 on your home waters and in the 6 Metre in Vancouver. What was that like? The T-birds was a super fun regatta. I hadn’t sailed much in the T-bird before. I think it’s a cool boat. I was doing bow and was really loving the size of the sails and the spinnaker pole - so easy to handle. That was during the BC fires, so the first three days were really smoky, you could barely see the other side of the bay and we had 10-15 knots with a breeze direction I’d never seen before. The competition was great, they scored 17 races, and it was a real battle for the top three. I sailed both events with Stig Osterberg as skipper. We had a good dynamic. We were sort of sharing tactics, and our communication flowed easily. He’s a great sailor, and a lot of fun to be around. 6 Metre Worlds was a little different experience. The regatta was really cool, and I liked the heritage and the competition, but I found the 6 Metre kind of scary. It’s heavy and hard to see where you’re going, and our boat had a particularly narrow foredeck - I actually fell overboard during a tack. The regattas were different, but I’ll be looking forward to more cool opportunities like that! And, our T-bird team is staying together for next season. - 48° North

hen I think back to our first two trips to the west coast of Vancouver Island (in 2015 and 2017), what comes to mind are images of rocky coastlines, desolate beauty, and empty anchorages. The west coast of Van Isle is a truly remote area, distant literally and figuratively from the crowds of Seattle and Vancouver area boating hubs. It’s an area where self reliance and the preparedness of boat and crew acquire real meaning. In 2015, we headed there on Violet Hour, our C&C Landfall 38 (which we had only owned for five months at that time!), and visited Barkley and Clayoquot Sounds. In 2017, we headed back; and with a little more time made it a bit further - to Nootka Sound. Our cruising style is to go slow, sail as much as possible, and seek out quiet uncrowded anchorages. However you cruise, the trip will be worth it.

Cruising Adventure on the West Coast of Van Isle By Patrick Davin

Passage Planning Strait of Juan de Fuca To get to the west coast from the Salish Sea means making your way out the Strait of Juan de Fuca, unless you have the time required to go around the north end of Vancouver Island (making for a full circumnavigation). While many Puget Sound Sailors have crossed the Strait of Juan de Fuca (JdF), traveling

its length east-to-west makes you feel the sheer size of this huge body of water, worthy of its reputation for challenging conditions. During the summer cruising season, you can anticipate those westward passages feeling particularly long, as they will likely be to windward. A large part of the planning for our two trips was around how to do the JdF leg. There are many opinions on it, and no right answer. In the Strait, the distances between viable anchorages are much larger than in Puget Sound and the San Juans or Gulfs - on the order of 40 - 60 nautical miles. In 2015 we opted for the U.S. side, anchoring in Sequim and Neah Bay before a long day to Ucluelet for Customs check-in. In 2017, we switched to the Canadian side, checking in at Victoria, enjoying a short sail to Becher Bay (just west of Race Rocks) for a night, then Port Renfrew (Port San Juan) the next day, and finally on to the south end of Barkley Sound. It took about a day longer, but allowed us to sail more by sticking to shorter passages to windward. Despite rumors of rolly conditions at Port Renfrew, we’ve found it to be a nice anchorage all four times we’ve been there (there are a few nooks we know to tuck into). There’s a one-boat nook on the southeast side near “Woods Nose” Friendly Cove in Nootka Sound.

on the chart, and room for one or two more at Snuggery Cove a bit further in. Another spot with plenty of room is just past Pacific Gateway Marina. If you’re a shallow draft boat, tucking in east of the marina breakwater provides the best protection. Having tried both, we prefer the British Columbia side for transiting the Strait because the anchorages are better and being checked into BC already allows us to shorten the last day (you avoid being required to go all the way to Ucluelet for Customs). In addition, we arrive in Barkley Sound already well provisioned with Canadian groceries.

Conditions On the west coast and JdF, there’s a very fine line between manageable conditions and those we-are-nothaving-fun-anymore conditions. Our best advice is always be prepared to turn around and try again the next day. One day this past July, we were leaving Ucluelet via Carolina Channel (a shallow, narrow channel that The “Violet Hour” crew prefer the Canadian side of opens to the Pacific Juan de Fuca on their way to the west coast of Van Isle. Ocean) when we encountered tidal and wind influenced VHF marine forecasts, the online waves that were so steep and closely versions of the U.S. / Canadian data, spaced that our bow was plunging into the PredictWind app, and observations the next wave as we went through the we made ourselves day-to-day.

lighthouse reports to be much more useful than marine forecasts, because they provide data with more specificity about what we would actually experience on the water. The hourly history is only available online, but we had cell coverage about 50% of the time through Google Fi’s convenient roaming service. The Mouse from Tofino At the 4th Street Dock in Tofino, I woke up at 2am to the sound of scratching and rustling. A mouse had snuck aboard, and it was eating Natalie’s granola! Now a mouse may sound like a small problem, but as you know, small problems can become big problems on boats. We immediately had fears of it hiding away in some deep recess of the bilge and keeping us awake every night with its scratching and scampering. We readied for battle, buying traps at the hardware store in Tofino, but ended up lucking out. After a few days, there was no further sign of the mouse. He must have left the first day, apparently satisfied with his granola snack. Anchorages The anchorages of the west coast are the main reason we go there protected, quiet, remote, beautiful. To us, that’s what cruising is all about. You’ll find tranquil silence in Matilda Inlet, you can see epic sunsets in Heelboom Bay, and you can expect magnificent solitude in the anchorages of Barkley Sound. The anchorages are what we go for, but memories of them are also something we bring home with us and cherish forever. Even the most popular anchorages generally have less than ten boats in them, and there are dozens of less well known ones where you’ll often have the anchorage all to yourself. On our most recent trip to the west coast of Van Isle, we spent only three nights in a marina and 27 nights at anchor. We may be a little extreme in our preference for anchoring; and it’s possible to spend more time in marinas if you choose. In Jaques-Jarvis lagoon, we were visited by dozens of hummingbirds trying to extract nectar from anything colorful they spotted on our boat. At Lucky Creek, deep in Barkley Sound,

we took the dinghy up the shallow creek to enjoy the waterfall and bathing pools there. West of Hot Springs Cove, we sailed into Hesquiat Harbor, discovering a humpback whale only a few hundred feet from us feeding on fish above the sand bar. Moments like these are what make sailing special. Carefully choosing weather windows will make the west Impressions coast of Van Isle a great venue for a first foray offshore. Despite the west coast’s obvious rewards, we’ve learned from our If you seek challenge and trips there that it’s a more demanding and tiring type of sailing than being on adventure though, and have at least the inside. You pay for the beauty and two weeks, the west coast might be remoteness through a lot more hard just what you’re looking for. It’s a great work. After each of our multi-week way to advance your skills quickly - in trips, we were left with mixed feelings: two weeks out there, we learn as much the satisfaction of experiencing as we do in four weeks on the inside. astounding beauty and peaceful Patrick and Natalie currently live seclusion, balanced by the lingering feeling that perhaps we had packed too aboard at Shilshole and sail in the Pacific many long, tiring days into too short a Northwest.

Mañana B y B e cc a G u i l lot e

I

f you ask a middle school student in Spanish class what “mañana” means, she will roll her eyes with attitude and answer you, “it means ‘tomorrow’, duh.” Which is true, of course. But in Mexico, this direct translation does not really convey the true meaning of the word. Down here, in the land of homemade tortillas, enormous potholes, easy laughter and a daily UV index of 11, mañana is more philosophy than timeframe. It is a mentality, an excuse, a way of life, and an attitude. Urban dictionary includes a very apt definition of mañana: “not today, maybe later.” Anyone that has attempted to accomplish something on a schedule in Mexico has most certainly run into this adaptation of the word. We have been hanging on every ñ of this open-ended promise recently. After the travel lift was doused repeatedly in the cyclical tsunamis last September, the marina ordered a new electrical panel from the Italian travel lift company. Two months of mañanas passed before the part arrived here in Chiapas. But it did finally arrive. Time for celebration, certainly! We can finally splash and be on our way. Well, not today of course. But mañana for sure, just a few more things to fix before the lift will work. And that is how two more weeks of mañanas slip by. 52

There is certainly a lack of infrastructure that at least partially accounts for this elastic characterization of time. There is no Amazon prime here to drop printer ink and brass fittings and 24-packs of toilet paper on your doorstep. There are no interstates to whisk FedEx trucks across the country carrying the right color bottom paint. And there is a long-standing bureaucracy that seems to love stamping documents more than moving efficiently. Having lived in Mexico for over a year now, my expectations are tempered at the first utterance of mañana. Maybe they do intend to have the product or be able to help me on another day. And maybe they don’t. I have found that generally people in Mexico do what they can to avoid confrontation, especially in a worker/boat owner affiliation. When the painter nods energetically and explains in rapid-fire Spanish that while he doesn’t have it now, he will definitely have red bottom paint mañana, that the truck is already on its way, what I hear is “you may want to pick a different bottom paint color, if you have a schedule.” It is not that he is lying to me, it just that he wants me to walk away happy with our conversation. He is telling me what he thinks I want to hear. January 2018

www.48North.com

Very occasionally, mañana is not an appropriate response to my silly gringo questions. Like when I am waiting at the shop for a guy to fix a flat tire on our tuktuk. Even in Mexico, it would be excessive to request I wait there until mañana. Luckily there is another equally amorphous phrase for these scenarios. “Un momentito” he tells me, with an amiable smile, his thumb and forefinger held close together, almost like he’s pinching time. Our middle school Spanish student would insolently tell us this means “one tiny moment.” But what my mechanic is telling me, while avoiding any disputes aimed at his workmanship, is, “I’ll do it, just not right now.” After an hour or two watching the world pass by from the curb, I wander off to find liquid to displace the pints I have already sweated through. When I return, the tire is new. “Aver, un momentito, si?” It only took a moment, you see? Yes, I see. It is easy to get frustrated by the elastic sense of time here, especially coming from a culture driven by productivity, beholden to a watch, and dependent on a calendar. When the mechanic says he will be there mañana at 9:00am then saunters up casually at 3:00pm without apology or explanation, many gringos get mad. “How disrespectful” we think, “doesn’t


he know my time is important?” The answer is no, he doesn’t. He means no disrespect. He was never planning on being there at 9:00, and assumes you knew that. It has required quite a bit of conscious shifting for me to relax into the mañana spirit. When I hear mañana, I set my expectations for “a few days” or maybe “next week.” Then, I am always pleasantly surprised when the bottom paint arrives, the mechanic fixes our injector, or the travel lift starts working. If you can set aside the calendar and take off the watch, the frustration will start to melt away too. There are some real benefits to embracing the mañana attitude. It doesn’t just mean “not today, maybe later”; it also means “slow down, take a breath, chill for a minute.” One evening, the power was out in the hotel where we were staying, not an uncommon event in a town spiderwebbed with drooping wires. The power was not restored all day because it was Sunday, and the guy (apparently there is only one) does not work on Sundays. My plan was to do some writing, but without a fan, our room

was uncomfortably hot. So instead I sat with the hotel owner and his wife, their friends and a few other guests in plastic chairs on the edge of the dirt road out front. We drank warm beer and told stories in mangled-up Spanish, listening to bad Mexican rap turned up too loud in a nearby car and just sat together, without agenda or burden. When you shake off the need to get everything done, to stick to a self-imposed timeline, to rush around feeling accomplished, Mañana finally came for “Halcyon” - splash day! mañana starts to take hold. It is more important to stop and and stress of life in an American city. talk with friends, asking about los So when you come to Mexico, take a niños and la abuela, than it is to make breath, ditch the watch, and enjoy life, it to your appointment on time. It is one mañana at a time. better to make new friends and drink Becca and John have splashed Halcyon beer in the street than it is to meet an arbitrary deadline.

LESSONS LEARNED WHILE CRUISING Jamie & Behan Gifford 2017 Year in Review:

Oopses And A Wahoo! Cause of Spectra watermaker failure in Bahamas: burst high pressure tube. Replacement parts, $500. Cause of engine overheat in Puerto Rico: O-ring failure. Replacement part, $0.25. Cause of engine overheat in Martinique: heat exchanger failure. Replacement parts, $1,811.32. Roller furler bearing failure in Grenada: replaced with spare onboard. 2017 was a year of going south for Totem and some of her systems! None presented any dramas, only work. Correction... After replacing the failed Magma BBQ control valve, enthusiastic grilling produced carbonized chicken and singed arm hair. The grill has two cooking temperatures: warmish embers or raging inferno; still, the blame is mine for not removing fatty chicken skin. Burnt hair smell lingers on. During our clichéd year of maintenance in exotic locations, these events were a sliver of living the dream in 2017. The so-called dream is dreamy

much of the time. But oopses happen. Screw-ups and how-the-felucca-couldI-have-been so-dumb events happen! It’s not all perfect passages and blissful Bahamian beaches. To err is sailor-like. To own it is a secret. So here we go! Counting down notable oopses from Totem’s 2017. 7. Our dinghy painter is the product of many refinements. Bright yellow is easier to see at night. Floating Polypropylene line is less likely to tangle in the propeller, which is a onceis-enough experience. Large stainlesssteel clip secured by big eye splice at the end means no more frantic searches for a dinghy adrift. With our painter, no more oopses, no “but I thought you tied the painter.” ...or so we thought. A younger crewmember forgot the hot generator exhaust safety discussion some years past. Hot exhaust blowing directly onto low melting point Polypropylene line. Hmm, what could

go wrong? A heated metal clip melted the line clean through; luckily, forming a solid Polypropylene blob just big enough to hold the clip in place. Our dinghy very narrowly avoided going on a walkabout. Our younger crewmember has some splicing to do. 6. Cruisers often avoid countries with difficult clearing-in procedures. Martinique is the opposite of this. Easy clearance and fine French food attract cruisers! On arrival, stroll to an air-conditioned marina office. Then complete and print a simple form on a computer terminal. Hand a five Euro note to the nice staff, and then proceed to le boulangerie. No grumpy immigration officials and no greedy customs officers. They don’t even check or stamp your passport! Couldn’t be easier, unless… Unless leaving Martinique by airplane. In doing so, it’s important to bring the printed form from the marina office. Forget the form and you can forget about your flight, according to le grand fromage immigration officer staring me down just before my flight to Puerto Rico. “But. But. But, I’m going for surgery,” I asserted. “No, you are not going,” he replied, “because I have no proof that you arrived.” Being presently present in his presence was not proof enough. Totem was an hour drive from the airport. With just minutes to my flight, Behan scanned and emailed the form to my phone. Holding the phone up to show the form, pleading, Stinky Cheese begrudgingly conceded my presence and let me pass. 5. Technically this was another person’s oops, but so nearly causing us a big ouch, it makes this list. New cruisers often must defend their lifestyle choice to family and friends as not reckless. Cruisers are danger seeking freaks, they say. Driving on the highway is far riskier, we say. We were crammed into a coffin sized economy car going to the Coconut Grove Sailing Club in Miami to give a presentation about cruising on Totem. Traffic was heavy and moving at a fast clip. As traffic slowed, a glance into the rearview mirror showed an overtaking vessel was not going to stay clear of the


vessel being overtaken – that being us! This was a clear violation of maritime navigation rule 13. I was pretty certain that collision avoidance was also important on land, so frantically pumped brakes to awaken to fast approaching vessel, ah, vehicle! Rule 13 finally registered with the approaching driver. Just a little too late though… BANG! Overtaking vehicle rear-ended us. Very fortunately, bumpers absorbed the impact. No injuries and no damage - just five shaken sailors and one apologetic auto-pilot. 4. Pizza night on Totem isn’t as regular as it once was. Tropical heat and few farmers market stalls selling pepperoni mean months between nights. A cool 80-degree evening and well stocked grocery store brought out the cry for pizza night! We invited friends on Utopia II to raft up for a simple, collaborative effort. After anchoring Totem 536 times, we’re confident we know a good anchor set. With Utopia II secured alongside, pizza prep began in earnest. Younger crew members prepared to dive into the warm water when one of them pointed out to older crewmembers

An astounding and demoralizing sight: Oops #1 was the discovery that a previous owner had stripped the hull to fiberglass, but had not finished the job with epoxy barrier before putting on bottom paint. It’s been this way for all ten years the Giffords have been aboard! that our position relative to other boats had changed. Couldn’t be dragging! Must be a quirk of angles. Pizzas with goat cheese and capers and anchovies were coming along nicely, when our slow slip to leeward was an illusion no more. Generous space between anchored boats is nice, but before long we would be the overtaking vessel in

violation of Rule 13! With thoughts of slicing through pizza, our anchor was slicing through an oddly crusty bottom patch. We picked the one area that want soft sand! Reanchoring while rafted is complicated. Instead we setup a second anchor, secured ahead of the primary anchor. Tandem anchors worked. Pizza night went on, with an

oops and a chuckle. 3. Our anchor windlass has a clutch that’s loosened to let the anchor fall. With a long alloy bar, the windlass clutch is tightened to secure the anchor chain and raise the anchor. When in use, the clutch bar is secured to the toerail on Totem’s foredeck with a lanyard and small metal clip, much like a mini version of our dinghy painter. When not in use, it’s stowed in the cockpit. On a recent passage, a lumpy, bumpy passage, I forgot the bar on the foredeck. At passage end, I went forward to drop the anchor

and saw the lanyard clipped in place and leading over the side. Of course, I realized my mistake of forgetting the bar on the foredeck, but it was secured by the lanyard. Or not! Lumpy bumpy passage made the bouncing bar chafe, chafe, chafe the lanyard. The lanyard now lies 16,000 feet below the Caribbean Sea. Oops… 2. Seasonal changes bring weather changes. Duh! We knew this, leisurely cruising through the Bahamas. Bimini, Berry Islands, Eleuthera, Exumas – so nice to be in clear, warm water again. April, May, June – hurricane season’s

approaching, time to GO! Easterly trade winds make it very tough going east for 400 miles to British Virgin Islands. Winter and spring weather systems disrupt easterly winds to make progress easier. A week past summer solstice, we finally chose to sail from those blissful Bahamian beaches – into solid easterly winds. We pushed the season and paid for it in lumpy, bumpy conditions that ate our alloy windlass clutch bar. 1. Totem was built in 1982. Since then, enough bottom paint’s been applied to earn her the nickname “Old Paint.” Hauled out in Grenada, we chose to remove all bottom paint and exfoliate the bottom to just smooth gelcoat. The bottom crew arrived with machinery and haz-mat suits. To work they set, with noise and dust in hot tropical sun! Too soon the noise stopped. Dust settled. ‘Must be break time,’ I thought. Then a wrap on the hull, “Skipper! Can you come down please?” I reached the last ladder rung and turned to see a paint-less portion of bow. The paint was gone and so was the gelcoat! Just bare fiberglass remained, exposed for all to see. We’ve owned Totem for 10 years, sans gelcoat and naive. We presume she had a blister problem. Gelcoat was peeled, hull faired and reskinned with fiberglass. All good, except a prior owner, a fellow by the name of #$%^$@)$* didn’t complete the job with multiple coats of epoxy barrier. This would keep the hull from absorbing water. Once stripped, a moisture meter revealed that Totem’s hull is saturated with water. A sponge holding onethousand pounds of water, or more! It’s not a structural problem; and down below, Totem is a dry boat. Just a wee bit heavy with water weight. The wet hull presented a logistical puzzle. Corrective action takes a haulout and time to dry out. This is driving our 2018 plans. Through Panama Canal and to hot, dry Baja Mexico for the summer. While Totem dries, these travelers are going on a road trip: Puget Sound, here we come! Wahoo! After ten years and comprehensive knowledge of rule 13, next summer it’s time to visit home.

esigning a boat that won’t leak is not hard - simply make sure there are no openings of any kind and nothing mounted to the hull. A paddle board would be an example. But sailors tend to like having cabins we can get into, that let light in, and we have all this sailing gear to attach to the exterior. All of these things requires holes through the leak-proof surface that then must be sealed. Every single screw is a way for water to get in. Unless you plan to liveaboard or sail away on a paddle board, you must seal every opening so that water cannot find its way in. This must counteract the effects of sun and rain, as well as the wind and waves that make the whole boat flex and move. This month, we will go over the specifics of how to reseal a portlight or hatch, but the same techniques apply to almost any hardware mounted to the deck or hull. From here, we will refer only to portlights for simplicity and brevity. Once you realize you have a leak, plan for how to deal with it. You can try the quick fixes (discussed in our October 2016 48° North article: “Find and stop your leaks”); but remember, these will only buy you time. The only long-term solution is resealing the portlight. The ideal time to do so is when the weather is warm and dry. If a quick fix buys you time, you should still plan or schedule the full repair for the near future when weather or convenience can ensure a proper permanent fix. The project may still be completed when it is cold and wet outside, but it requires extra planning and set-up.

o T - Light IN,Water OUT! w

o H Reseal Portlights or Hatches By Alex and Jack Wilken

Removal: Getting a portlight out in one piece, without damaging the opening it is mounted in, requires great care and persistence. This is more true with portlights than almost any other hardware. The same techniques are applicable with most hardware removals: thin, flexible putty knives are normally the best tool to achieve this task. To help protect the deck or hull around the portlight, you can tape the putty knives an inch up the blade (Figure 1), put a sacrificial layer of tape on the cabin side, or make sure there is always cloth between the putty knife and the cabin side. The trick is to be able to cut through the sealant as much as possible without wedging out on the portlight so much as to break it. The safest way to do this is by simply pushing the thin putty knife in between the sealed surfaces. Keep working it in and keep working around, use multiple putty knives to hold onto your progress. Maybe even work slightly thicker ones in once the thinner ones have opened the way. If you are having trouble getting the putty knife all the way in, try working it in between two putty knives (Figure 1). The bottom of the portlight can be more difficult if it is close to the deck. Work the putty knives in from the side or at an angle if

there is enough room. It may be easier to take a wider putty knife and work it in sideways. If there is not enough room, you can cut down a wider putty knife to work the uncut side in along the bottom (Figure 1). Once you have gotten all the sealant you can reach cut free, begin pulling, pushing, levering, and/or wedging the portlight out. Patience is the key, particularly with a plastic portlight where uneven force can easily crack it. Once you have as much wedging achieved as you dare, the final extraction may be best done by hand, pulling directly on the frame. Every time one part moves, focus on moving the other side to pull it out straight. If you are having trouble moving it, have someone push/pull from the other side. If you break the portlight getting it out, good news, you now get to install a brand new portlight and don’t have to completely clean off the old hardware. You just need to be able to acquire new matching hardware. Repair and cleaning: Once you have removed the portlight, carefully clean off all the old sealant from both the opening and the portlight. If there is any damage from the leak or the removal process, repair it. Water damage can be quite extensive. We

recently had to replace a portlight in a boat because the leak had softened the inner layer of plywood to the point it needed to be cut out and replaced (Figure 2). Removing all the old sealant is very important, particularly if silicon was used. Silicon can leave a residue that can prevent any new sealant, including silicon, from sticking to the surface; thus preventing a good seal and causing leaks. This residue left by silicon can resist all chemicals. The only way to be sure that it is gone is with sand paper. Roughing up the two sealing surfaces

with 100 grit sandpaper helps to ensure a mechanical bond. Choosing the right sealant: There are many kinds of sealants used to seal portlights. Used properly, almost any of them can seal the portlight for a time. However, our goal is to not have to reseal it frequently; and, when we need to reseal, we don’t want it to be too difficult. Let’s talk about the various options from the most adhesive strength to the least. 3M 5200 and high strength polyurethanes are often used as sealants; however, they are not really a sealants, but rather are a

construction adhesives. They will keep water out, but when the seal fails, the adhesion will remain and are so strong they will pull gelcoat off of fiberglass. Additionally, chemicals such as fuel, solvents and acids can cause them to fail, and they do not stick to plastic. 3M 4200 or other medium strength polyurethanes are a little better when used as sealants, but still have very high adhesive strength compared to other sealants, and they have the same weaknesses of other polyurethanes. 3M 4000 or polyether is a new product which is flexible and can stand up to chemicals, but still has perhaps more adhesive strength then is desirable when you are trying to get it apart. Silicon is one of the few sealants that will stick to plastic. This is probably its only favorable characteristic other than the fact that it will stand up to chemicals. This is part of the problem mentioned above of not being able to remove the residue. Silicon is not very elastic, tends to fail quickly, and is difficult to remove when it does. Sikaflex makes some low strength polyurethanes which fall more neatly into the category of sealants, but share the other weaknesses of polyurethanes; with the exception of Sikaflex 295, which will stick to plastic if the proper primer is used. Boatlife Life-caulk or polysulfide has a few failings, but boasts some real advantages that make it one of the more useful sealants and our favorite. Its biggest limitation is not sticking to plastic. It also is not very elastic. The solution to this is to make sure there is enough thickness of sealant to deal with any movement. Do not tighten down the bolts all the way which squeezes out all the sealant. Bring them down till there is still at least 1/32” or more of sealant still between the two surfaces and let it dry to create a formed gasket. Polysulfide stands up well to chemicals once it is dry, and, more importantly, water helps rather than inhibits its curing. Butyl products, such as Butyl Tape, were once the preferred sealants for windows. Butyl has very little holding power, can’t stand up to chemicals and holds dirt, but is more elastic than any other sealant, and makes removing and replacing much easier. Sometimes the old solutions


are the best ones. Speaking of old solutions: Dolphinite is probably only a consideration on wooden boats, but it is a serious contender for them. It has little adhesive quality, so removing the portlight will not be difficult, and, because it never hardens, it can squeeze out and suck back in as the boat expands and contracts. Preparing for resealing: Once everything is clean and ready to go back together, do a dry fit to make sure all is well and to provide guidelines for taping. Taping is the key to a clean installation. Instead of trying to clean all the way into a corner, you can find a round object such as dowel to clean out the excess sealant and create a uniform fillet around the portlight. If you are going to use this method, it is important that the tape not be under the fillet in any place or it will ruin it when it is pulled, but make sure it is not too far back from the edge, so it will still be useful in cleanup (Figure 3). You can tape over screw holes, but you must cut the tape away so that none

of it will be trapped when you tighten them down. Resealing: When the preparation is finished, you can begin applying the new sealant to the mating surfaces. Don’t go overboard trying to seal every surface; you only want to stop the water on the outside. Referring to (Figure 4), which shows all the parts to a portlight, the only place you put sealant is at B. If water gets in, you want to know; you don’t want it trapped behind a secondary sealant layer where it may start working its way into the deck. Make sure you apply enough sealant so that you can smooth it out with a putty knife. Be Figure 4: A Outer frame. B Sealant here seals out sure that there will be no voids water where the outer frame meets the cabin side, and have an even squeeze-out inner frame, and where the screws pass through the outer frame.

Galley Essentials with Amanda Eli and Hans onboard their boat, “Anna.”

While on our latest Spitsbergen expedition, I reconnected with Eli. We’d first met in 2000 and had plenty to catch up on. In the limited time we had together, I was able to convince her to write about her galley, although she was very reluctant, as she was worried about her English grammar. I assured her it was grand, especially compared to my non-existent Norwegian. Thanks Eli! I learned to sail in 1996 when I met my husband, Hans. He loved to sail and had always been sailing. After our first summer together on his boat, he gave me a sailing course as a gift. It was a gift I am very thankful for, as I think it’s better to learn from someone other than one’s own husband. I’m a school teacher in Oslo and grew up in Norway. I have always loved outdoor activities. When I was a child, my family went on camping tours most weekends, every summer, and over the winter holiday. Sometimes we went to places by the sea, but more often to the woods or mountains. When I was older, I went on ski and kayak tours with my friends and we stayed in either tents or cabins. It was natural to take part as a crew when I went sailing with Hans and continue the outdoor life with the sailboat. Every summer we go cruising for 8-10 weeks on Anna; our 1995 aluminum 39’ Dick Koopman sloop. Anna is the name of Hans’ grandmother. Our general cruising 60

areas are the North Sea, North Atlantic out to the Faeroes, and Barents Sea up to Svalbard. In our cruising waters, we rarely do more than two nights at

sea before arriving at our destination, so we no longer cook complete meals while offshore. Instead we heat water for freeze dried meals which we eat out of their bags; but if the conditions are extraordinarily good, I make pasta with tomato sauce. Pasta with tomato sauce 6oz pasta 1 tablespoon olive oil 1 onion - diced 3 garlic cloves - diced 1 can corned beef 1 can chopped tomatoes red hot dried chili - to taste Parmesan cheese Cook pasta. Sauté onion in olive oil. Add garlic and corned beef; cook 5 minutes. Add tomatoes and chili and cook for as long as you want (it’s tastier the longer it cooks) Serve tomato sauce with pasta and Parmesan. In the galley, we have a threeburner kerosene Taylor stove with an oven, and a fridge which we only use for coastal cruising. When offshore and in the high arctic, we use the bilge to store food that needs to be kept cool. My galley priorities are a sharp knife, wooden spoon, and large cutting board. We use drinking bottles with built-in filters as sometimes we fill our water tanks from rivers. We always have a thermos with hot water for Eli serving pasta aboard “Anna.”

drinks and snacks like noodles. I have a couple of containers with air-tight lids for leftovers and when I open boxes and bags of food items I transfer it to my own storage containers. Our main priority is KISS! Hans is only willing to maintain “essential systems,” we have no pressurized water or hot water. I do the cooking and the provisioning. I never do the dishwashing, that’s my husband’s responsibility. For provisions, I ensure there’s enough onions, garlic, canned tomatoes, spices, and carrots for snacks. We have plenty of oats for making breakfast porridge. Lunches are generally crisp bread and canned mackerel or tuna. For dinner, I have rice, pasta and mashed potatoes, canned ham, corned beef, beans and lentils. I stock up on plenty of other foods like oil, coconut milk, flour, Thai curry paste, mustard, cheeses, peanut butter, canned condensed or powdered milk and eggs. There’s a locker with freeze dried meals and biscuits, plus a drawer with chocolate, peanuts, and chewing gum. Along with canned food, we have smoked and dried meat and dried salted cod made by my parents. Bacalao 1 1lb dried salted cod (soaked in fresh water for approx. 24 hours) ¾ cup olive oil 8 potatoes - peeled and sliced 3 onions - sliced 2 cans chopped tomatoes 2 red hot chili peppers - diced Dice the fish. Heat the oil in a large sauce pan. Layer fish, potatoes, onions, tomatoes and chili: you should have enough ingredients for 2-3 layers. Simmer for 1 hours, or shorter if you use pressure cooker. Serve with bread. Serves 4. Chicken Curry 2 chicken breasts - diced 2 tablespoons olive oil 2 teaspoons red curry paste 2 garlic cloves 1 teaspoon ground paprika 2 teaspoons dried basil 1 can coconut milk ¼ cup water In a large pan, heat oil over medium heat. Add spices then chicken and sauté until meat is cooked. Add coconut milk, cook for at least 10 minutes or longer

until sauce thickens. Serve with rice. Serves 2. Our worst galley event happened many years ago when spent a long summer sailing the Baltic. Hans had quit his job so were on a limited budget. Lentils and beans became a staple part of our diet and we would soak the beans in a container in the bilge. When friends joined us for a week in Gotland, they were quite vocal in that beans were not part of their usual diet and they would rather do without. No problem, since they also volunteered to do the shopping. It was one of those sizzling hot summers in the Baltic and when our crew left we remembered we had pre-soaked beans lying in the bilge. When we opened the container the beans had basically “gone bacterial.” We never really got rid of the smell of rotten beans. Lentil Salad 2 cups green lentils 3 tablespoon lemon juice 3 tablespoons olive oil 1 onion - diced 1 red hot chili pepper - minced

3 cloves garlic - crushed salt and pepper Extra ingredients: olives, diced hard boiled eggs, feta cheese, diced peppers, diced tomatoes, olives, or whatever you like. Cook lentils. In a large fry pan add lentils, lemon juice, oil, onion, garlic and chili: heat through. Remove from heat and add extra ingredients. Our most memorable meal was in the most unsuspected place! After a six-week cruise on west and north coast of Spitsbergen, we were in Hornsund waiting for a weather window for the return passage to the Norwegian mainland. One morning, we awoke to find our German friends Peter and Lore Vörsmann, on SV Orion, anchored 100m away from us, having just arrived from the mainland. They’d brought with them fresh meat and served us steaks and fresh vegetables from the grill the following evening. Thanks for sharing, Eli!

Seattle Voyagers in The City Of Sails First Glance at the Auckland Sailing Scene By Jon and Michele Rogalin Henderson

A

uckland is known as the City of Sails, and as we approached Auckland from our voyage across the South Pacific, we had a number of conversations excitedly speculating about the sailing scene. What will racing be like? Is every Kiwi an amazing sailor? Racers at heart, we were quite keen to get back to it after cruising for nearly a year and a half. Three days after we arrived, Michele posted on the Richmond Yacht Club website crewfinder. We did our first race a few days later. We have been in Auckland for about a month now, and we feel like kids in a candy store! There are racing options nearly seven days a week, and the one-design classes are almost entirely new to us. We’ve been racing out of three different yacht clubs. At first glance, the Auckland sailing scene is really similar to that in Seattle. Our first adventure was on Ken Kok’s Young 11, Road Runner, out of Ponsonby Cruising Club’s Around Rangitoto race. This was a mediumdistance race around a volcanic island in the entrance of Huaraki Gulf’s Waitemata Harbour, similar to some of the round-an-island races we have in 62

the Puget Sound. With the picturesque views of the local scenery and the city front (which has it’s own Space Needle – Auckland’s Sky Tower), the volcanoes, a plethora of islands, and crazy currents, the local waters have many similarities. This particular race gives the racers a choice of going either way around the island, just like the Seattle Yacht Club’s Blake Island Race. Coincidentally, it was held on the same weekend as Orcas Island Yacht Club’s Round the County Race. Fighting the currents, and trying to take advantage of the eddies had us thinking about our friends back home. Next we were invited on Simon Malpas’s Beneteau First 44.7, Atamai, to sail a Wednesday Night series race out of the Richmond Yacht Club. After our team won the race, we were invited to join the crew and plan on winning the series. RYC is the closest we have found to Corinthian Yacht Club of Seattle. They are a casual sailing, communityoriented yacht club that runs tons of races. Located in the Westhaven Marina, the club has a spectacular view of the harbour. Many of the races in Auckland are started from a race January 2018

tower located on the breakwater, just like CYC Seattle used to do on Lake Washington. The Wednesday night series is well attended with a range of different boats making for several closely grouped PHRF classes. We saw a little of everything out racing - from a couple of TP 52s and multi-hulls, to racer-cruisers and local one-design fleets. Auckland’s Waitemata Harbour features around twenty permanent race buoys located strategically around the bay which are used in various combinations to make up the race course, similar to Sloop Tavern Yacht Club’s Ballard Cup races. After racing, everyone heads to the yacht club, where racers share sea stories and cheer on the winners at the prize giving ceremony. Sound familiar? We felt very welcomed and people have enjoyed hearing stories from our voyage across the Pacific. We are both keen one-design racers, so we did some research and contacted a few of the local fleets. Most of the one-design racing happens through the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron (RNZYS). Michele jumped in first, racing the RNZYS’s Farr MRXs in


their Women’s Series. She was invited to join a team and has committed for the Nationals in April. Noj enjoyed the feeling of being a racer-chaser for a while until he found his fleets. Noj started racing with the Stewart 34s for their Monday night windward/ leeward sprint racing. These classic boats were conceived in the late 1950’s and have a cool local history. They remind us of the Buchan 37, with a stepped cabin, fin keel, and a slippery hull shape that was ahead of its time. The Stewart 34’s were the first fiberglass boats and broke all kinds of records when they first arrived on the racing scene. This class, despite its older style, also has many pro-sailors and ex-America’s Cup sailors, and is very competitive. We have both enjoyed Thursday night sailing with the Young 88 fleet. These are cool little high performance boats, with enough of cabin and interior to be able to cruise them on an overnight trip to the islands. There were over one hundred Young 88’s built, and they regularly get around twenty boats out on Thursday evenings, and more for the local championship regattas.

The close racing has some talented sailors including the RNZYS Youth Squad, and members of Team New Zealand America’s Cup racers, as well as several teams which have sailed together for many years in the fleet. The first night we raced on competing boats (and it would be better for Noj if we didn’t rehash the There’s not a 505 fleet for Noj, but if he wants to results). hang on a wire, there’s no shortage of skiffs! While there are no 505s for Noj, there are a number of skiff fleets that look very competitive, from the Seattle scene. There are more with speedy boats and tight racing, than a dozen all-female teams that and he is super keen to get out sailing race every Tuesday evening through with them. Michele also has her eye on out the summer, and the windwardthe Elliot 7s, which look a little like the leeward races offer some solidly Melges 24s. The Etchells fleet, which competitive sailing. Michele fully offers some of the most pure one- enjoys the focused vibe onboard racing design racing (according to Noj, who with “her ladies.” The other major has been sailing with them as well), difference is that almost everyone that sails on Tuesday Evenings, sharing the races is also a cruiser. This was a big race course with the women’s racing surprise given how little crossover on RNZYS’s Farr MRX’s and Ponsonby there is in the PNW. Imagine if the San Juan islands were only an hour or Cruising Club’s women’s PHRF fleet. This is a good segue into the ways two away... The cruising opportunities that Auckland sailing is a little different here are incredible. There are many

a massive role in churning out world class sailors. Every day of the week, including the 25+kt, rainy, foggy day we sailed into Waitemata harbour, there are people out sailing. Almost every person we have raced with is going cruising over the Christmas holiday. Sailing is a big thing here. In the US, the average person on the street is not likely to know what the America’s Cup is. Everyone here (according to a very unscientific poll of random people) knows what it is, who has the Auld Mug, and that Auckland is hosting the event in 2021. At the end of the day, the sailors are just like those in the PNW. They are great people with a passion for sailing. Post-racing at the club has the same trash-talking, beer drinking, prizing giving scene that we all enjoy. The yacht clubs here have world class sailors, Olympic gold medal winners, America’s Cup sailors, and a whole lot of people simply keen to sail, whether racing or cruising. Sounds a whole lot like some clubs in Seattle, doesn’t it? While we’ve have only been here a month, we feel like we’ve been welcomed into the Auckland sailing scene with open arms. Like Seattle, there is opportunity to race every night of the week, and some weekends, if you are so inclined. We have also been invited to join some of the yacht club cruises to the beautiful destinations that are close by. Both cities offer volcanoes, gravity-defying sky structures, gorgeous cruising grounds, talented racers, and as much racing as you could possibly handle. There is already an exciting buzz around the upcoming America’s Cup races in Auckland with Emirates Team New Zealand defending the Auld Mug in 2021, and the Volvo Ocean Race will be coming ‘round in February. We are very excited about the possibilities that lie ahead for us in our new home! Feeling at home in Auckland, Noj is working with Evolution Sails, and Michele is checking off her honey-do list while looking for a lecturer position. They will be our on-the-scene reporters for the Volvo Ocean Race and America’s Cup festivities.

CYC Seattle

Score: 100%

Fisheries Supply again joins 48° North in recognizing the high level of racing here in the Pacific Northwest. Tracking the racing results of selected series from Olympia, Washington to Vancouver, B.C., our Top 25 rewards not just the occasional bullet, but participation and consistent, top-notch sailing. This year, Erik Kristen‘s J/105, Mor Jubilee, took the coveted #1 spot in our Top 25 list. Congratulations to Erik and his crew! The following sailing events were scored: South Sound Sailing Society Southern Sound Series, Corinthian YC Center Sound Series, Sloop Tavern YC Blakely Rock Benefit, Corinthian YC Pacific Northwest One Design (P.O.D.), Seattle YC Tri-Island Series, Corinthian YC Puget Sound Spring Regatta, West Vancouver YC Southern Straits Classic, Royal Victoria YC Swiftsure International Yacht Race, Whidbey Island Race Week, Bellingham YC PITCH, Orcas Island YC/Friday Harbor Sailing Club Round the County Race, and Corinthian YC Puget Sound Sailing Championship. With a mix of distance and multi-race regattas, these twelve races make for a good representation of Northwest racing.

Check the 2018 Seattle Area Racing Calendar inserted within this issue or at your yacht club for upcoming races. Boats were scored on a percentage basis (depending on the size of the class), with an average of your best five of the listed events. Event scores were from 0% (did not finish) to 100% (first in class), where the event score = (finishers – position + 1) / finishers. Ties were broken by incrementally adding more events, or left to stand if necessary. Unlike previous years, there was no minimum number of races required to qualify. If a boat completed fewer than five races, they were scored the same as “did not finish.” Our goal is to celebrate participation and consistent top-end sailing. Each boat earned her spot in our list based upon her performance in regattas under varied sailing conditions. Our hats are off, not only to all the outstanding skippers and crews who make our Top 25 2017 list, but to all of you out there racing our challenging Northwest waters. This year’s 48° North/ Fisheries Supply Top 25 skippers may pick up their Battle Flag at the 48° North booth during the Seattle Boat Show at CenturyLink Exhibition Hall, Booth West #7, or our the office after the show.

he 50th Anniversary LeMans Race T was hosted by Gig Harbor Yacht Club on November 18th. The rain

gods took a break, providing a rare sunny November day for the race. In light winds, 28 boats started the race from anchor in historic Gig Harbor to the joy of spectators lining the shore and in various water craft. It was a delightful sight to see race boats hoisting sails from their anchorage and slowly make their way out of the harbor and up Colvos Passage. The trip north required a mixture of beating and running, with spinnakers flying at times. Instead of a finish back in Gig Harbor, the race was shortened to end after 4.5 miles, near Point Richmond, due to light winds. The race start was modeled after the LeMans Car race starting approach. The Gig Harbor YC LeMans Race was first held in the 1960s. In the early years, racers would anchor and then go ashore in a dinghy to get the race instructions. With race details in hand, the skipper rowed back to the boat at the start signal, raise sails and pull anchors. In more recent years, the practice of using a dinghy at the start was dropped. For this anniversary event, nine boats in the “Founder ’s” Class started the race by rowing a dinghy from the historic fishing vessel, Veteran, to their respective anchored boats at the start signal and towed their dinghy during the race. Veteran is a historic Skansie purse seiner launched in 1926. The Veteran is a beautifully restored example of one of the most recognized and significant vessel designs originating from Gig Harbor. The Veteran is now owned by the Gig Harbor Boat Shop. The race kicked off with the Founder ’s Class. After a quick row and securing their dinghy, skippers ordered crew to weigh anchor and raise sails. A light and variable breeze in the harbor challenged the boats, spinnakers and drifters were raised and lowered to gain advantage. It took close to an hour for most boats to clear the harbor. The first boats out were Grace E, Paddy Wagon, and Pirouette who maintained their lead. Heading up Colvos Passage, boats were initially close-hauled in

were even lighter. In the Founder ’s Class, Grace E, a J/35 skippered by Brian White, took 1st place. Second was taken by Paddy Wagon, a Ross 40 skippered by Andrew Bly; and 3rd place was Pirouette, skippered by Jaime Storkman. Pirouette was one of the original Thunderbirds built by Gig Harbor Boat Shop in the 1960s with sail number 2. The boat was recently refurbished at the Boat Shop and showed she is still a www.48North.com

worthy competitor. Class 1&2 boats started together 30 minutes after the Founders class. Their trip out of the harbor was also a challenge with the need to fend off some drifters from the Founder’s class start. Bumping boats without protest is common occurrence in a LeMans start. Again, for the most part, the first boats out of the harbor held their lead as they played varying winds in the passage. Lead boats stayed well off the shoreline where wind and current were in their favor. First across the line, with a first in Class 1 and Overall, went to Nefarious, a Farr 30, skippered by Dan Randolph. Constellation, a J/133 took 2nd while Gardyloo, an IMX38 took 3rd. In Class 2, Alternate Reality, an Express 27, skippered by Darrel Jensen took 1st. Second place was awarded to Slick, a J/29, and 3rd went to Wild Thing, a Santana 525. With a warm sun, a pre-race dinner and after race party of chili, beer and wine, a good time was had by all participants in this unique race event. A big thanks to all who competed in and supported the race. A special thanks to John Mulligan for hosting Erik Carlson and his race committee on his trawler, Lucille, and for Ron Roark for use of his Safe Boat, Merl’eau ,for a turn boat. by Tom Gray GHYC photos by Sheila Shultz Mordue results on page 77 71

Bay. Honestly, it had blown through before the last of us left the yacht club on Friday night. It wasn’t long before the rain started and the traces of breeze clocked west. Fortunately, the tide was with us. Unfortunately, it was just about the only thing with us! Boats took turns catching zephyrs, and while you might see boats pointed in the same d i re c t i o n o n o p p o s i t e tacks, it seemed like the most consistency was along the Vashon shore. Sidewinder and Poke & Destroy were launched, with Slick, Chinook, Cherokee, and Nimbus in the near neighborhood. Even with 90° shifts, the pressure was on the beach. Race leaders were duking it out tack-by-tack, but all the while glancing back at the boats in the distance with kites up. And the kites were full. Easterly goes westerly


goes easterly and, for a moment the wind clocks back; but not enough pressure to fill a kite. The kites back south were undoubtedly getting bigger, and eventually Crossfire broke through the pack and took the lead. The entire fleet was now upon us and we were still working with the wind ahead of the beam. At long last, we’re in! All boats loaded up and trucking, all in the same small patch of water. It was nearly 3:00 pm and the mark boat was in our sight. It was so rainy that you could hardly see if the boats were rounding and racing or if they were finishing. As it turned out, we finished at the north end of Vashon. Some boats turned and organizer herself, Stephanie Arnold, with the Second Wind.

Some boats actually turned and sailed upwind, evidently they were even more committed to the race than us! Most boats powered back south to rendezvous with vehicles.

Turkey Bowl

C

orinthian YC’s Turkey Bowl doesn’t always attract the biggest fleets (something about sailing in November), but last weekend, thanks to the efforts of kids, coaches and parents, it was a remarkably well attended regatta. Nearly 60 boats were entered including 505s, Vanguard 15s, RS Aeros, Lasers, Laser Radials and Optimists. Mats Elf won the closely contested 505 class, while Dieter Creitz won the Optis with straight bullets and Nate Walgren won the 4-boat Vanguard 15 fleet. The singlehanded fleets each had a strong showing with 14 Aeros, 9 Laser standard rigs and 13 Laser Radials. Dan Falk, winner in the Aero class, “couldn’t remember having that much fun” as the last heavy air duel against Carl Buchan. They

76

finished a foot apart, with the nod going to Buchan. Oregon’s Doug Seeman made his trip worthwhile, winning the Laser standard rig on the strength of a dominating performance on the light air first day. In the Radial class, it was Owen Timms taking the win over Abbie Carlson and Kit Stohl. The Radial class is really coming into its own and is a great place for younger and smaller sailors to compete at a high level One of the groups of young sailors came from the Mount Baker Rowing and Sailing Center, a City of Seattle racing program based on Lake Washington and now headed up by Kaitlyn Van Nostrand. Here’s Kaitlyn’s report from the weekend: Mt. Baker Youth Sailing Team culminated its first fall practice series

January 2018

www.48North.com

by attending CYC’s annual Turkey Bowl with four Lasers and two Optis. Three of our novice sailors had never raced on the Sound before and for one of our Opti sailors, it was her breakout regatta! They were tough kids, considering most juniors start and stop when the weather is warm and dry. With some nervous laughs, the junior sailors joined the 505s, RS Aeros, Lasers, Radials and Optis for six great races on Saturday. Our team learned about the current, being scared then excited about the waves, swell, and lots of “ah ha” moments when we talked about how the current would affect the mark rounds, and connecting the theory to practice when the current did just that. For two of our Radial sailors, their goal was to finish the races. Finish they did and by the end of the day, the race committee was cheering them on as they crossed the line! For the other two second-year Laser sailors, it was fun to see their great improvement that all the sailing they did this fall paid off. As they were able to finish closer to the fleet of great year-around juniors sailors from SYC’s race team! Our Opti sailors learned how to stay out of the way of 505s screaming past and got a few hellos from our Laser masters friends! After over five hours on the water and some warm chili, our sailors were falling asleep at the clubhouse. Needless to say, they had a good night sleep! The forecast was wild for Sunday, but we did manage to get two great races off in the funny west/south west direction. Then the real fun began, the swells started getting larger before the big gusts came just as the second laser race was finishing. Race committee abandoned racing for the junior classes and the parade of Laser Radials and optis made their way back to the docks. It was a wild ride in huge gusts and big swell for our lake sailors!

quality yachts from swiftsureyachts.com Some people are pretty naked. Most are not. Boats too. Paint and fairing compound can hide wrinkles, bulges, and poor craftsmanship. Chantiers Navals Garcia is renowned for crafting aluminum sailing yachts; in particular, their round-hulled, shoal draft Passoas with centerboards and twin rudders. Sargo is a natural beauty and has been optimized for performance with high quality Antal winches and hardware, performance sails, and low-stretch, Dyneema running rigging. Nothing shouts out “serious cruising yacht” like an unpainted aluminum hull, hard dodger, scoop stern, stern arch, solar panels and steering-vane. Knowlegeable cruisers will appreciate her low maintenance exterior, rugged construction, bullet-proof systems, and functional layout. Sargo Garcia Pasoa 46 2005 • $335,000

Why You and this Document Matter So Much To Us It’s no secret that, at 48° North, we love sailors. We are awed by their self sufficiency, drawn by their wanderlust, and fueled by their passion. Racing sailors, in particular, are a unique breed, and have both a special place in my heart and an important role in the broader world of sailing. This is for two primary reasons. The first reason we hold racing sailors in such high regard is their ability to fan the flames of the sailing community. Almost all racers go sailing as a part of a team, sharing experience and cultivating lifelong relationships. Most sailors like to go to the club or the bar after racing to exchange stories and rehash the day’s lessons, questions, or conditions with teammates, competitors, and friends. Some racers are the best teachers I’ve ever known - they live to bring new racers up to speed, to offload their knowledge, and to grow the crew pool for themselves and all of us. All

of these actions strengthen and grow the sailing community. While there are certainly strong bonds between buddy boats, rendezvous groups, and cruising clubs - I’m not aware of many cruisers that embrace and depend on the community in the same way as racers, who must have other boats on the water to play their game. Second, I think it’s important to note how many enthusiastic racing sailors do not own boats. All of us who race depend on those wonderful sailors who do own racing boats, but ownership is not a bar one must clear to identify as a die-hard racer. This is important because, as the marine market and the broader economy evolve, the influence of ownership and sales data tells a less complete story about growth or decline of our sport. Racers identify as sailors loudly and proudly whether they own or not; they devote themselves to skill progression and follow the

coverage of the sport actively; and they support sailing businesses by buying foulies, technology, dinner or drinks at the yacht club after racing, and much more. This is why you matter. And it’s why working with yacht clubs to provide this calendar matters deeply to us too. The organizations that partner with us on the SARC want more people to come racing - whether you’re bringing your own race boat, trying out a cruising class, or jumping on as crew. If more people know about the astounding variety of racing opportunities and more people go sailing as a result; everyone, including you, will benefit from the rising tide. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, we think racing boats is just incredibly fun. Most of you know what we’re talking about; but if you don’t, pick one of these races and give it a try! — Joe Cline, Editor 48° North
