Competence Breeds Confidence The sailing world is chock full of impressive people and accomplishments. Locally or on the world stage, in realms of boat building, sail or wing design, cruising, racing, foil development, education... Man, if you’re not impressed, you’re not paying attention. Among the most impressive, by my calculation, is the long distance solo sailor. Many of us do a bit of solo sailing. Most of the boats for sale in this magazine tout “lines led aft to the cockpit for easy short-handed sailing.” I’ve personally dabbled with sailing alone, from my Laser to larger boats that I took out as an experiment. Solo sailing is a fun challenge. My early experiences with it taught me how the solo sailor must think many steps ahead of the average sailor. There’s nobody there to grab the helm for a minute or hold this sheet while I run up and fix something. Forethought and preparation are paramount. If you’ve read anything I’ve ever written, you know I’m obsessed with the team and community dynamics in sailing, so I’m probably not destined for a long tenure as a solo sailor, but the value and enjoyment has been there for me, nonetheless. Of course, I never left the sight of land while sailing solo. I never slept while the boat was underway. I’m not sure I even did a sail change, and I was still challenged by the number and sequence of seemingly simple operations when I was the only person on the boat. Offshore sailors of any stripe talk a lot about the requirement of self-sufficiency on the open ocean, and with good reason! You’ve got to be able to do everything yourself, because help or rescue is incomprehensibly far away. Could self-reliance be any more on display than in the case of the solo offshore sailor? This has been on my mind because I had the opportunity to spend some time with solo circumnavigator, Laura Dekker. You may know Laura from the beautiful documentary, Maidentrip, or from the international headlines back in 2009/2010 when the Dutch government tried to block her attempt to sail around the world alone as a 14 year old. I’ll save you the suspense - she was allowed to go and spent two years circling the globe, asserting her independence, and showing the world that skills and self-sufficiency are not determined by a person’s age. When she sailed into Sint Maarten, she closed the loop, and became the youngest person ever to circumnavigate the globe singlehanded. You read that right: Laura finished sailing around the world, SOLO at age 16! (Mind. Explosion.) Laura was in the Pacific Northwest for a presentation at Portland Yacht Club, and she was kind enough to sit down with frequent 48° North contributor, Cara Kuhlman, and me. We get to know Laura over lunch and then she was a fabulous interviewee as Cara and I excitedly peppered her with questions (Page 22). Laura is strikingly competent. Her confidence comes from her competence. Whether we were talking with her about sailing, navigation, Guppy’s refit, engine maintenance, what she’s looking for in her next boat, dependence on electronics, youth sailing, politics, or whatever... she just exudes competence. She has a lifetime of experience and a unique commitment to preparation, which she finds fun. All of this makes Laura one-of-a-kind, as a person and a sailor. She cultivated, prepared for, and executed a wild dream of sailing around the world alone. She was just a kid, albeit a staggeringly competent one. Nearly everyone called it crazy. She relied on herself as solo offshore sailors must. And she is now safely near the top of my personal list of impressive people in sailing. The next time I take a boat out solo, I’ll be asking myself, “What would Laura Dekker do?” I’ll see you on the water, Joe Cline Editor, 48° North 6

Avis Berney Oak Harbor, WA Thank you, Avis! Truth be told, Jim dropped a copy by my office a few months back and I’ve been woefully delayed in getting to it. The book is certainly striking a chord! You were the fourth person this month to recommend it to me, and one even cornered me at the boat show and told me he would talk to me about his boats only after I had read the first page of the Before the Wind! It’s certainly time for me to get back to it, and to consider a book review in the mag here or perhaps at www.48north.com. Response to Dehler 38C Article Hi Joe,

At a recent meeting, I told you about the hilarious passages in Jim Lynch’s book, Before the Wind. At the time, the funny parts were all I had read. There is so much more to this book than the quirkiness of sailors and people who own boats. Having finished the book, I couldn’t help but re-frame my comments to you. It is a mix of hilarious quips about sailing and boating, family dysfunction, and profound passages about life, all set in our Puget Sound backyard. I highly recommend it.

November 2016

Letters “Here Whaley, Whaley” Dear 48° North, So there we were in Port Townsend, WA, on August 14th, 2016. It was the end of a fantastic weekend of Bob Bitchin’s wild pirate party. Six sailboats from the Coho Ho Ho sailing rally were dockside with vessels warming and raring to go. It was the final meeting of our four month seminar series before we left for our much anticipated cluewater cruise. We were headed south to meet the Baja Ha Ha and the adventures beyond. It was never my intention to be part of a sailing rally or to become a bluewater sailor, apparently life throws us some unexpected and grand surprises. At a rollicking New Year’s Eve 2015 dance, I accepted an innocent-enough offer to go on an early morning boat ride over to Bainbridge Island. There were six or seven of us aboard and we had a fantastic morning, including breakfast and a walk on the beach. The owner of the boat, Doug Lombard, turned out to be the founder of the Coho Ho Ho. He left us all wanting more of what we had that morning. I started sailing a lot more, volunteered for the Coho Ho Ho, and rather awkwardly began being of service in a world I knew nothing of. Soon enough, I was immersed in the language of sailing. A bathroom is now a head, the kitchen is now the galley, no upstairs, no downstairs, it was all unfamiliar and a whole bunch of fun. With Doug as my guide, we set out together on many sailing adventures throughout Puget Sound and the San Juan Islands. I learned about tying knots, navigating, docking, cooking on a gimbal stove, weather, tides and currents. I am one lucky person for volunteering for the Coho seminars. When it came time for the fleet to leave, I was not planning to be on one of the boats heading south, until a last minute addition to the Coho Ho Ho needed crew. Doug was unable to go because of work and thought it was a good idea to offer me up for the ride. I never would’ve had the confidence to volunteer myself. With the help of my new sailing friends, I was provisioned with foul weather gear, a PFD, and all the incidentals one needs to go to sea. On that Sunday in Port Townsend, I boarded the S/V Pinguoin as the cook for what turned out to be a 1,200 mile adventure at sea. My complete history with my Captain, Doug Rosen, consisted of a freshly caught crab dinner with friends in Anacortes. That’s it. The next time I saw him I was boarding his sailboat for an unknown bluewater adventure. The fog was thick that morning, the wind going out of the Straits was against us all the way from Port Townsend to the ocean. The payoff for leaving in such conditions would be that the wind would be at our backs when we reached the open waters – we would sail! We were a crew of four: Trey, a 30 year old musician from Texas; James a brilliant 6’11” writer from Vermont who had sailing the deep blue sea on his bucket list; my Captain, who had been sailing since he was a youngster; and me. The waters were wild and the wind was blowing. Our Texan was seasick and the rest of us were just trying to www.48North.com


Letters become familiar with our new tumultuous living quarters. We wouldn’t see calm waters until the day we were to arrive in San Francisco. What a ride. My excitement grew as we left the strait behind and got closer to the sea. I had heard so many tales of whale sightings and how playful dolphins were with boats, so I was eager for bluewater experiences of my own. We reached the ocean in the middle of the night, got situated on our course and sailed into morning where I promptly began summoning my whale friends. “Here whaley, whaley” I yelled from the canvas clad cockpit. From behind me, with what a deep and almost menacing voice, my captain responding with, “there’s no whales here!” Yikes! It suddenly dawned on me just how long this voyage could be... especially with a Captain that didn’t believe in whales, oh my! A bit embarrassed, but determined to call on my wayward whale friends anyway, I begged the whales hither, if a little more gently, “Here whaley, whaley.” The Captain repeated his response. Captain Doug had explanations of why there were no more whales in the ocean, and sadly I was beginning to believe him. I kept calling anyway, but I was getting disappointed. But then on day four, there were whales! The Captain raised an eyebrow, but was really happy see them. Then came the porpoises, and a day or so after that, we saw a garden of whales. Whales as far as the eye could see! We had slowed down to lower the main and ended up in a dance between the sailboat and the whales. The captain became a bit less cynical, and we were all in awe. As planned, the Coho fleet met in Sausalito to celebrate the passage of the most difficult part of the journey. Helping sailors get through this dangerous stretch of ocean safely is the purpose of the Coho Ho Ho. Our gratitude for the camaraderie and nautical skills we had gained was notable. My pal, Doug Lombard, joined the crew for the final leg to Marina Del Rey. On our last day, the sun was in full view for only the second time since August 14. We had humpback whales breaching all around us and hundreds of dolphins ushering us on. How exciting and beautiful! The dolphins apparently gave each other a private signal and abruptly stopped and turned - gone as quickly as they had arrived. Moments later, a hundred more dolphins were bubbling out of the sea right to us. It was a welcome grand enough for Neptune himself. On this year’s Coho Ho Ho, my Captain was made a believer, the Texan became a sailor, and I did something I thought only ‘other’ people did. What a ride!

WITH BOW BUOY YOU’RE NEVER ALONE

I’ve been reliving my three visits to race venues in northwest France while checking often on the Vendée Globe website to see if all 30 skippers have cleared the final hurdle and arrived at the race village in Les Sables. It’s the biggest field ever and includes four English speakers, including an American, Rich Wilson, who is 66 years old, and three French men whom I got to meet and talk with in Le Havre and at the 2012-13 finish (in French, of course). Expect one third of the boats to retire in the north Atlantic and at least half to not finish. That’s how Rich Wilson achieved his notable top ten finish eight years ago -- by not pushing an old boat too hard. This is going to be an exciting race! Cheers, Peter Marsh Nautical Writer/Photographer

Hassle-free docking for the shorthanded sailor I developed the Bow Buoy Docking System (BBDS) because I’m retired (with physical disabilities) and couldn’t use my sailboat nearly as often as I wanted to. My boating opportunities were greatly limited by the need for a second person to assist with casting off and mooring. Now I’m only limited by the weather. - Jerry James (Inventor) Website:

November 2016

Thanks for the note, Peter. I’m personally very excited about the Vendée Globe this year, too! It’s beginning soon November 6, 2016! I’ve been down the rabbit hole getting to know some of the competitors when I should have been working several times (sorry, Boss)! If a person is an editor of a sailing magazine, that constitutes “work” of a sort, right? I wrote my editorial this month about solo sailors, including Laura Dekker, but how about the solo sailors from the Vendée! One of the things I love about this race is variation in the boats. You’re absolutely right, the fastest boats won’t necessarily win because the development of the boat and foil technology is on the bleeding edge. I genuinely can’t say whether I’m more excited to follow the likes of Rich Wilson and Conrad Colman, who will be sailing older, slower, but stouter boats on a budget; or whether I’m more excited to see more follow some of the “blank check” programs with lifting foils on their monohulls, from the likes of Alex Thomson of Hugo Boss, Morgan Lagraviére of Safran, Sébastien Josse of Edmond de Rothschild, and Armel le Cléac’h of Banque Populaire VIII. My only knock is that François Gabart won’t be there to defend his title! www.48North.com

in the U.S., and posthumous nominations were also accepted. The undertaking to recognize Americans who have made outstanding contributions to the sport of sailing is central to the mission of the NSHOF which was formed in 2005 and has completed phase one of its plan to establish a permanent facility on the historic waterfront of Annapolis, Maryland. The Lifetime Achievement Award inducts an American citizen, 55 years of age or older, who has had consistent involvement in sailing for a majority of his or her life and had success in the sport while also becoming successful and achieving noteworthy stature in a non-sailing career. The 2016 class of inductees will be formally celebrated on October 30. The invitation-only Induction Ceremony will be held at the St. Francis Yacht Club and is sponsored by Condé Nast and Rolex Watch U.S.A.. Additional support is provided by Anchor Steam, Dream Yachts, Hawkstone Vineyards, Mount Gay Rum, and Volvo Penta. The NSHOF will dedicate the 2016 Induction to the AmericaOne Foundation. AmericaOne was a finalist in the challenger selection series of the 2000 America’s Cup, representing St. Francis Yacht Club. Since then, the AmericaOne foundation has been supportive of sailing on many levels, including Olympic Sailing, disabled sailing and exposing underprivileged youth to sailing.

The amazing autobiographical account of the youngest ever solo circumnavigator of the Earth. If you want to see the other side of the world, you can do two things: turn the world upside down, or travel there yourself. In 2012, at the age of just 16, Laura Dekker became the youngest sailor ever to single-handedly circumnavigate the globe. In realizing her long-held

dream, she had not only braved the wild oceans and long weeks of solitude at sea, but also the doubts and sometimes hostile resistance of officials. In this remarkable account of her incredible journey - for the first time in english Laura describes in her own words what it is like to sail

Did you ever wonder which civilization first took to water in small craft? Who worked out how to measure distance or plot a course at sea? Or why the humble lemon rose to such prominence in the diets of sailors? Taking one hundred objects that have been pivotal in the development of sailing and sailing boats, the book provides a

fascinating insight into the history of sailing. From the earliest small boats, through magnificent Viking warships, to the technology that powers some of the most sophisticated modern yachts, the book also covers key developments such as navigational aids; the astrolabe, sextant and compass. Other more apparently esoteric objects from all around the world are also included, including the

solo around the world, and the determination it takes to do it at such a young age. Exciting, awe-inspiring and inspirational, this is a real-life adventure for readers of all ages. One Girl One Dream by Laura Dekker, $18. 99 , published by Harper Collins, www.harpercollins.com

LESSONS LEARNED WHILE CRUISING Jamie & Behan Gifford

United States Sailboat Show:

Bringing Friends Together in Annapolis Dawn Johnson and Michael Robertson. It’s also nearly a decade since Jamie and I last attended a boat show, in Seattle of course! We were both curious to see what kind of new gear or boat designs might catch our eye… and maybe hunt down a boat show deal or two. Helping with Lin’s booth was a family affair. The kids contributed to setup the day before the show, putting up posters, carrying books, and getting our sandwiches for lunch. Jamie helped us with heavy lifting, getting heavier tables and boxes moved around, and we both spent hours talking to fellow sailors and hopeful cruisers in the booth. In the days leading up to the show, we all watched the weather intently. Hurricane Matthew was leaving terrible damage behind in Haiti and was on the way to the US east coast, possibly heading towards us. This is an outside show with vendors under carnival tents and boats pulled into hurricane-unworthy temporary docks. Fortunately for Annapolis, it headed out to sea much further south, and the show went on… the system throwing alternating days of rain and wind our way instead. By the time we celebrated a successful first night at the show by enjoying a quiet dinner on Totem with Lin Pardey, and Paul & Sheryl Shard (from Distant Shores TV), Matthew’s risk was safely away. Seattle was well represented at the US Sailboat Show! We had a great reunion with old friend Brad Jamie and Behan share the sound of “whales” inside their Triton.

This time last year we were in Africa, visiting Madagascar, South Africa, and Lesotho. Now, Jamie and I finished a dizzying five days at the US Sailboat Show in Annapolis, Maryland. We didn’t see a single lemur or lion! This show is wholly focused on the sailing crowd, not just boating in general. This annual event takes over a sizeable chunk of land and sea in the historic capitol. Attendance comes in around 50,000 - that’s greater than the town’s population! There are scores of boats, three different multi-day seminar series, and a sea of vendors. If you’re a sailor, especially one with a shopping list, this show is huge. Why were we there? Totem’s kitted out and we’re not looking for a different boat. But, attending the show fell comfortably into our southbound path back to the Caribbean for this coming winter. And it was a great opportunity to hang out with cruising legend, Lin Pardey. She had a booth promoting the dozen books she and husband, Larry, have written; as well as books she’s published, including Voyaging With Kids, that I co-authored with Sara

Baker, a well-known Seattle sailor and an owner at Swiftsure Yachts. We last saw Brad while waving goodbye between boats when our families parted ways in French Polynesia. They sailed back to Seattle and we continued across the Pacific. Brad and his team showed us a couple of stylishly rugged boats, good looking and built to go anywhere. It’s just as well I was too busy to get the up-close look that Jamie had, or I might have had unfaithful thoughts about trusty Totem. We had a fun catch-up barbecue with some of the other Seattle crew. Ryan Helling met us at the door. He helped Jamie with the initial delivery of Totem from San Francisco to Seattle in 2007. Waiting inside with a beer was Andy Cross from Three Sheets Northwest. He and his wife, Jill, delivered a boat to the show from Maine. After years of trading email, it was great to finally meet in person. On show days, my time was in the booth with Lin Pardey. She’s sailed enough miles to go around the world five times, and technically closed two loops. She’s every bit as impressive as you’d imagine. Lin came bearing sharp wit, unfaltering opinions, sparkling humor, and boundless energy. Standing outside for five days could’ve have been miserable work, given the wet, chilly, windy weather. My hamstrings squawked from long days of standing on tarmac. But it was actually sore muscles on my face from smiling, laughing, and talking with Lin and so many attendees that left a bigger impression. Jamie was freer to roam the docks, and checked out boats in the basin of what’s affectionately known as “ego alley” in Annapolis. It’s a slice of water where the bristol and the brassy come to parade before waterfront restaurants. It’s completely taken over by shiny boats during the show. There were gorgeous boats from the high end: Oyster, Hylas, Gunfleet, Southerly, Amel, and a few others. The big boats shared design trends: open decks, big cockpits, sprit/ anchor platforms, hull portlights, and powered everything (winches, furlers,


electric stove tops). Jamie joked that everything was big about these boats except the comically small anchors. There was no shortage of other styles, including production monohulls like Hanse, Beneteau, Jeanneau, J/Boats, and Dufour, among others. And so many catamarans! During off hours, Jamie and I met with a few of our coaching clients, too. We’ve recently started a coaching service for people that want to go cruising. We’ve had mostly Skype and email communications with them, so it was nice to meet enthusiastic people preparing to go cruising. One truly surprising aspect was the number of families actively on the path to get out and see the world. At least two dozen families from all over came with their dream, and lists of things to check out. You think the show is about the boats, but ultimately, the show was all about people. Jamie connected with old friends: Toby Halsey, a colleague from his long-past days at Halsey Sailmakers, now a broker working at the show. Tim Tylaska, a boyhood friend, was there showcasing some of his ingenious designs for the marine

hardware company he owns. We caught up with Rich Boren, of S/V Third Day, from our Mexico cruising days, and now owner of a watermaker company. And Tim from S/V Kamia, another “kid boat” that we crossed the Pacific with, and who we last saw in Australia. So many PNW friends and world sailors making their living in this amazing sailing scene.

Laura Dekker 48° North Interview by Cara Kuhlman

For a lot of people, it seemed really crazy but as a child you don’t really think about, “is this the way it should be or not?” It’s just the way it is. As long as your parents are there and love you, it doesn’t really matter whether you’re in a house or on a boat or in a shipyard. How did you and “Guppy” (a 40’ Jeanneau Gin Fizz ketch) find each other? My dad is a very good boat builder. We found Guppy and she was a total project boat. She’d been in the yard for seven years. No one had looked at her. She was repossessed by the bank, the windows were out and there was a meter of water in it. It was a disaster boat, we did a lot of work.

Laura Dekker started her circumnavigation at age 14 and completed her record-breaking voyage in the Caribbean at age 16, making her the youngest person to ever solo circumnavigate the globe with stops. Before ever leaving land, her dream captured the world’s attention when the Dutch government objected to her plan, despite her parents’ consent, and delayed her inevitable departure. Laura’s voyage ended in New Zealand after 36,000 nautical miles but her journey as a sailor, sailing icon, and young woman continues. Now 21, she lives aboard her beloved boat, “Guppy,” and has released her book, One Girl One Dream, in the United States. We recently caught up with her before a presentation at the Portland Yacht Club to learn more about her historic circumnavigation and future aspirations. Cara Kuhlman: You did this really amazing trip, how do you normally start sharing that story? Laura Dekker: Well, I’ll back up a bit. My mom and dad are both travelers. Dad is the sailor in the family, Mum doesn’t actually like sailing, but they sailed around for seven years. My dad built a lot of boats since he was very little. They just kind of 22

got bigger, and bigger, until he started building the 40-foot boat that my parents sailed around the world. They sailed for about four or five years and got to New Zealand. I was born in New Zealand and they tried to stay there, but they didn’t manage. So, we had to move on and we sailed to Australia, and then Asia. Eventually, my mom flew back to Germany to give birth to my sister, who is three years younger than me. So, my dad sailed the last bit back to Holland solo. I lived in Holland for the rest of the time. Mom and Dad divorced, so I grew up with Dad, who started building another boat - a 60-footer, a big boat.

You must have seen some potential, though. What made you pick her? Oh, the hull shape is just really beautiful and the ketch set-up is quite good. It’s got a flush deck so I can actually see where I’m going. That’s a problem with a lot of boats - I’m just too small. It was cheap and we could fix it up. We changed quite a bit. We put a new rudder under it, which is deeper and steel, instead of the normal sandwich which is very weak. We went up a size to thicker rigging and we changed it a little as well, by putting a triangle on it. We repainted it, and did new windows, new engine as well...well, two new

When did you get your first boat? I built my first boat when I was six. You can’t really call it a boat; it’s probably rather a raft. It floated, it sailed. I sailed it across the river and back. Then my dad got me an Optimist and that’s where it all started. A lot of young sailors don’t have that boat building experience. How did it affect you? You know, it was so normal to me because every day I came home, Dad was building the boat. There were plans of the boat everywhere so it was like “Oh, this is what you do.” November 2016

Laura’s first boat was one she built herself.


engines. We did it in like four months. For me, after school. And for my dad, after work. Had you already gotten some or all of the sponsorship for the trip at the point? Yes, it was easy to find sponsors who would give me stuff; solar panels, engine, sails, rigging, all that. All that was pretty easy. But I never wanted to get sponsors for the financial part. A huge super-yacht builder was going to sponsor the trip but, you know…for them, it’s a business. For me, it’s a dream. So you did the refit on “Guppy” and started your trip, how did that feel? Did it come together or was it challenging? Well, I actually had the boat I wanted to do it in when I was eleven. It was a Hurley 700, 22-footer. I had that boat set up; it didn’t have much. It was a tiny boat, can’t put much on it but it was seaworthy, a really nice boat. But then the court decided that it was too small. That’s why we had to get the bigger boat and had to really push it to get it ready. If you had taken the smaller boat, how would that have changed your trip? I think it would’ve been nice, actually. I really like that little boat because everything was really easy. You know, when something happened I could still fix it, and it was much cheaper. If you need a few new lines, then you just go out and buy some new lines. On Guppy, if I need some new lines or halyards then it’s like, “Ok, I need to save up for this.” I think in that perspective, it would’ve been great. I would’ve had to work a little bit less and could’ve enjoyed the sailing a bit more and it would’ve been easier. On Guppy there were a couple of things where it was just heavy. I once had the Code 0 up and a squall came in. That’s just a huge sail to take down on the bigger boat, and I know it wouldn’t have been quite so bad on the little boat. Mainly, I think it would’ve been kind of fun to do it in the little boat. But, I really love Guppy and I think she was the absolute perfect boat. Would you talk about your learning curve with “Guppy”? She was only in the water

The solo circumnavigator and her beloved “Guppy” under sail. for a month before you left, so I imagine that you got to know her underway, right? Yes, it was one of the things we were trying to point out to the judges when they were like, “No, you need another boat, it needs to be bigger and it needs to have this, and this, and this.” Because they just thought, you know, the bigger it is, the safer it is. Which is absolutely not true, but they weren’t sailors. Once Guppy was fixed up, I sailed her on the lake where my dad lives, and one trip down to England, and that was it. In that aspect, it was much less safe because I didn’t know the boat and I had to get to know it while already out there. That was definitely hard. You need to know how fast your boat can go in certain conditions and how high she can point, and how she will behave in certain waves, what direction will be the best. If you don’t know your boat and think, “Let’s just go that way,” and your boat doesn’t really like to go that way, then that can be quite dangerous. Was there something that surprised you most about that boat? Or moving from the small boat to the big boat? It was just a totally different boat. The first boat was a full keeler, it was very heavy. It maneuvered differently, and it’s good to have much more sail up. Guppy is a ketch, a fin keeler. It’s just such a different boat. I really had to learn to reduce the sails quicker. She starts surfing going down a wave, www.48North.com

the other boat didn’t do that. I think I really didn’t know the boat until about halfway through the Pacific. Will your next boat be fin keel or a full keel? Oh, that’s funny. I’m going to go to a full keel. It will be a slow boat. I’m going to go to a full keel cruising boat because if you do long distances, you mostly just want to be a little more comfortable and they move very steady and slow and nice. I’d like to take people out on the boat and Guppy is a racer/cruiser, so she’s fast and jumpy, quite uncomfortable. I really loved Guppy’s speed actually, I quite enjoyed sailing her and really pushing her and racing to the next place. But if you take people out, that’s not quite so much fun. You can’t use the toilet, you can’t cook. You can’t really sleep because you just get bounced off your bed. So, that’s the main reason I’m going back to full keel. You had an incredible runway to make this trip by being born on a boat, having a father who is a shipwright, and having all this experience. What kind of advice would you give a young person who is interested in doing long distance sailing but doesn’t have that same foundation? It’s all about preparation. You really need to just go step-by-step, learn, be determined and interested. Go sailing with friends, try out what it’s like. There is a lot of learning and preparation involved but a really 23


big part of the fun is preparing for it, learning about it, and working up to a big dream. A memorable part of your documentary was your arrival in South Africa and coming through that storm. There is a particular part where you talk about how you were too focused to be scared. Can you say more about that experience? Were there other experiences on your trip where you noticed fear but your mind was less focused? I began sailing the Opti on my own when I was six, and part of the deal was that my dad was going to do training with me. I wasn’t allowed to sail it on my own for the first half year or something, he always went with me, working on docking the boat, sailing through things. One day, he just suddenly flipped over the boat and I remember I was so scared. I didn’t want to go in the water and I thought I was going to die. But he thought that if you sail, you need to know what happens if the boat flips, and you can’t be scared of that. Then, he always went a step further. The second time, he flipped it and made sure I got under the sail so I was under water, under the sail, and had to get out. The next time, my feet would get tangled in the ropes. He was very good at very sneakily setting all this up and then I’d be stuck under there. He was always in his little dinghy right next to me, watching me. I learned that I shouldn’t, I couldn’t panic. I would think, “Shoot, this happened, alright. What do I do? What are my options?” and just quickly analyze the problem. I think it’s just amazing that Dad did that training with me. There was no room to freak out, because every time I freaked out it wouldn’t work.

He would say, “You need to think clearly, count to three, go through your options, and then go from there.” I have often applied that on the boat. At what point on your trip did you decide you weren’t going to go home? Probably while passing New Zealand the first time. I just hated passing New Zealand. I really, really wanted to see New Zealand and go there because I heard so much about it. But, going to New Zealand means another year because you go down there and you have to wait for the season to change to go back up. So I sailed past it the first time and then I thought, “I’m just going to keep sailing and then I’ll get to New Zealand again.” The other reason I didn’t go back to Holland was that my original plan led through the Red Sea and then back up to Europe. That year piracy was really bad. There was no way I could do it. So I had to go around South Africa anyway and then the most logical route back to Europe is going to the Caribbean and then back. So then I thought I might as well keep going to New Zealand. It all just made a lot of sense to me. You’ve chosen to live in New Zealand. What is your relationship with Holland like at this point? Do you still identify with aspects of culture or citizenship? Obviously the foundation is there, your family is there. Yes, my family is there. I don’t really have a big relationship…at the time I was sailing around I actually hated Holland and didn’t want to go back at all. I’m over that now. I see it was just a few people who kind of were really difficult.

Lighting Round with Laura Favorite book? Solo by Tania Aebi (Maiden Voyage), but The Long Way by Bernard Moitessier is getting close. I like real books, and I hate being selective about what books I keep aboard. It’s another good reason to get a bigger boat. (You can just sail in, go to Powell’s here in Portland.) Yeah! I was at Powell’s and it’s good that I don’t have my boat here because I would just load it up. There are so many good books. Favorite movie? Well, Captain Ron. And I really like the old Point Break too. Favorite food to cook underway? Pasta and pancakes. I love pancakes, they’re really good. When it’s a bit more quiet, I just make a huge stack of pancakes and whenever you’re hungry you have one. It’s so handy. Favorite tool or piece of gear? My wind vane was pretty important for me. I don’t think I would’ve done very well without my wind vane. What would you take on the life raft to the desert island? Well, definitely lots of water and food. I don’t really care about the rest. I try not to put too much value on materialistic things. When you meet other cruisers, is there one question you ask them first more than any other? I guess it’s always, “Where are you from?” and “What are you doing here?” If you could be transported back to any place you’ve ever sailed to, where would you go? French Polynesia. It’s a hard question, because every place has its own really special things. They’re all so different, but I think overall I liked French Polynesia best.


Holland does have nice things. But I just like New Zealand a lot better as a place to live. It wasn’t the plan, I just wanted to go there to see it and then I just fell in love with it and stayed. As a boat owner, you know maintenance comes all the time. Is there a particular boat project that you hate? And another one that you like the most of all the projects? I hate sanding and antifouling. Expensive jobs. I love working with ropes and rigging. I really like that. I really like fixing the electrical system too, that’s really fun. It’s a lot of logical thinking and making up drawings to understand what’s going on. What do you think about youth sailors and youth sailing? I think if it’s set up right, it’s quite a cool thing for young people because there are a lot of things you can learn. Even for myself, it was great that my boat is very simple. I don’t have internet. I don’t have a shower. I don’t have a fridge. That’s actually quite good, to just get away and realize you don’t need all those things and that’s not what life is about. Sailboats have a habit of just throwing you into crappy situations and you have to get yourself out of it. I think that’s a really good thing for young people to just get out there and you have to get through it. When someone tells you that you’re their role model, what do you tend to say to that? I don’t know, what do you say to that? I never thought about it that way until people kind of told me that I was for their kids. I always find it kind of hard because for me, it was just my thing and it was kind of selfish. I wanted to do it. So when someone comes up and says, “I’m inspired and I’m going to go do (whatever their dream is),” it’s really cool. It gives the whole trip another special meaning for me. You’re here in Portland to do a presentation, what else are you up to now? I do deliveries every now and then. In New Zealand, I work with the high school outdoor program. Whenever they are going on a trip, I’ll come with them. It’s really fun to see them excited about being outdoors. We went on this

big hike up a mountain and they were just all, “This is not fun, I don’t want to do this, I’m tired.” We had to stop about every five minutes. But, once they were on the top they found it so amazing and they were really glad that they did it. Do you have another big dream that you’re working up towards? Well, yes. I’m trying to sell the boat and hopefully it will go to somebody who will use it for youth training, like the Laura Dekker Sailing Foundation in Holland. I’m not affiliated with them except by name, but they’d like to buy Guppy as a platform to teach other kids.

Then, I want to buy a bigger boat and, hopefully, take people out that want to know what it’s like to go sailing but aren’t sure about it. So, you’re willing to share your sailing time now? Oh yeah, absolutely, I’d love to. I think it was great that I was out there on my own for that time. I think I really needed that. But now, when I’m out there it’s like, “Gosh, I wish I could show somebody how amazing this is.” First, we need to get the boat and then fix it up. So, it’s going to be a few years probably until I’m that far.

Laura’s dream boat, a Hudson 51. Is this a dream that you’re pursuing with your husband? And, congratulations! Thank you, and yes it is. Living aboard together comfortably is another reason for the bigger boat. I’m not going to live on land, I’m absolutely not ready for that! Do you have your eye on a specific boat? Yes, a Hudson 51. Do you know Formosas? It’s basically the same boat. How did you do your homework and figure out what boat you want? Have you ever seen Captain Ron?

(YES!) Ok, I love that movie. So I’ve watched that movie, I don’t know, twenty times. Every time I see that boat, I’m like, “that’s a beautiful boat. One day I’m going to own a boat just like that.” So, I started looking up boats and I went into Yacht World and thought, “I want it to between 45 and 50 feet and it needs to have this and this and this.” It kind of narrows down and I just looked at the boats that I like and there it was! It’s exactly the same boat as in the Captain Ron movie. I was like, “That’s it!” It’s really beautiful, it’s comfortable. Is there something in sailing you still want to learn or take on? There’s a lot involved with the bigger boat. At the moment I am mainly focusing on the boat maintenance, keeping the boat running completely on my own. The electrical systems, the engine; on the bigger boat, the systems totally expand. Will you do more cruising around New Zealand, or do you have longer-distance aspirations? I’ve set my mind on Patagonia and

Chile. I don’t know, it’s just another one of those things that’s been in my mind forever and I need to go there. Tell us about your book. It was first published in Dutch in 2013, and it just came out in English in the U.S. a few months ago. I wrote my diary on the trip and kind of made a book from it after. That was a lot of work. I started writing in Dutch the first couple of months. My later diary entries were actually in English because I was just speaking English all the time. It’s kind of fun to go through the whole trip again and think about what you got from it and what were the bad parts. A lot of things would totally make sense to me and then I would send it to my dad, who even kind of knew what happened, and he’d be like, “What? I don’t understand what you’re talking about.” It was hard work, but so great to be able to share my story and hopefully inspire readers.

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

While tide pooling recently, I spotted a flash of color. It was wedged into a rock crack and at first I thought I had spotted a tossed away Coke can – same size, color. Then I realized it was moving and a closer look showed a little vermillion sea star just waiting out the out-going tide in a rock niche. I pried it off and inspected the hundreds of moving little feet with suction cup ends all along each arm, all groping for something to latch onto. Then it rolled up into a little ball, so, like the good beach-walker I hoped I was, quickly put it back in its rocky home. It was just so, vermillion!

Common on all sorts of beaches with rocks, shellsand, gravel and even mud bottoms, this little predator makes a living off anything it can grab onto such as sponges, worms, and even the waving sea pen, another flashy creature I’ve written about here. Can’t find a meal of living tissue, vermillion stars scavenge the second-tier stuff such as detritus and dead creatures. It’s not picky! And it does all this the same way other sea stars eat, by flipping their stomachs out through the mouth and digesting the meal externally. Finished, it pulls it all back inside the body again. Hollywood couldn’t have come up with a better yucky finish.

Galley Essentials with Amanda A local boating family dining at Teresita’s

I’d first sailed to Santo Domingo, the capital of Dominican Republic, in 1988 aboard Maiden. As a qualifier for the Whitbread Round the World Race, we’d raced the Route of Discovery Race from Spain to Santo Domingo and had won on handicap against a large line up of maxi yachts. Our win caused an uproar with the maxis and they protested to the Whitbread Race committee to change the handicapping rating for the around the world race. Our hopes and dreams of an overall victory for the upcoming race were dashed. Nevermind, we were now guests in an exciting new county and it was time to celebrate our current win with style. Nearly thirty years later, I was again setting sail for the DR. This time on an upwind passage from Panama. Calm seas and favorable north winds prevailed as we departed the San Blas Islands, so we sailed Mahina Tiare whenever possible and motorsailed when necessary, staying 20-50 miles off the coast of Columbia to avoid headwinds and contrary currents. Several ships drifting offshore while they waited for dock space in Cartagena provided a slalom course. The next day, as we passed Baranquilla, the sea turned the color of mud, and trees, along with small bits of islands, drifted by. At times the headwinds increased to 20-25 knots and we’d reef down, motorsailing and tacking along the coast to 28

A day later, in the lee of Punta Vela, we ghosted along while John and our crew changed engine oil then transferred the lazarette fuel jugs into the main tank. We then tacked out to sea and set sail nothwest towards Boca Chica, DR.

totally reefed down concentrating on keeping boat speed down to 6 knots, but overall sea conditions weren’t as bad as t h e y c o u l d h a ve been. The forecast southeast winds that would have allowed us to ease sheet only materialized our fifth night at sea. The next day our crew spotted skyscrapers and we were soon winding our way into Marina ZarPar. Our first impression of the DR was that of exuberant total chaos! 50’ sport fishing boats zoomed by just a few feet off our beam with music blasting and people dancing on the foredeck. Yep, it’s the weekend...time to party! We had no difficulty clearing in and were happy to find a first-rate marina and Teresita, a friendly little outdoor restaurant to celebrate our arrival with a variation of the following. Coconut Rice with Pigeon Peas 2 tablespoons of olive oil - divided 1 teaspoon finely chopped cilantro ¼ cup chopped celery ⅛ cup of capers ½ teaspoon mashed garlic 12 pitted olives cut into halves ½ teaspoon of thyme leaves 1 bell pepper - chopped 1 pinch of oregano 1½ teaspoon of salt 3 cups of boiled green pigeon peas - if available 3½ cups water ½ cup tomato sauce 2 cups of coconut milk 4 cups of rice In a large saucepan heat 1 tablespoon of oil, add cilantro, celery, capers, garlic, olives, thyme,


peppers, oregano and salt; cook 2 minutes. Add peas, water, tomato sauce and coconut milk. Bring to a boil, stir in rice, simmer stirring regularly until water has evaporated. Cover with a tight-fitting lid and simmer 15 minutes. Uncover, stir in the remaining oil, cover again and simmer another 5 minutes. Rice should be firm but tender inside. Serves 6. Dominican Shredded Beef 2 lbs of beef 1 teaspoon salt ¼ teaspoon pepper 1 sprig of thyme 1 teaspoon oregano 4 tablespoons of vegetable oil 1 large red onion - sliced ½ tablespoon of crushed garlic 1 cup of carrots - cut into large cubes ½ cup of peppers - cut into cubes 2 cups of tomatoes - cut into large cubes 1 cup tomato sauce Season beef with salt, pepper, thyme and oregano. In a large sauce pan heat half the oil and sear beef. Add enough water to cover beef then cover pan with a tight-fitting lid, simmer until meat is tender, rotating every once in a while and adding water if necessary, 3 cups of water should remain. Cool to room temperature. Cut beef into 2 inch slices, then shred. In a heavy saucepan saute onions in remaining oil until transparent. Add garlic, carrots and peppers; simmer 3 minutes. Add tomatoes and simmer 10 minutes. Add tomato sauce, meat and remaining beef liquid; simmer 10 minutes. Serve with rice. Serves 6. Cornmeal and Coconut Cake 3 tablespoons of butter 2 cups cornmeal 3½ cups milk 2½ cups coconut milk ½ teaspoon of salt ½ cup of raisins 4 cinnamon sticks 1½ cups brown sugar Butter a 2½ quart baking pan. Preheat oven to 350F. In a large pot on medium heat add all the ingredients Stir constantly until it breaks a boil, lower heat and continue stirring until it thickens to yogurt-like consistency. Remove cinnamon sticks. Pour batter into pan and bake until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean; 35 minutes.

The next day after checking out the beach resort town of Boca Chica, we headed 12 miles by taxi to Santo Domingo. We met Felix, a professionallytrained and licensed guide who took us on a fascinating walking tour of the “old colonial city” which contains many restored historic buildings, most of which are more than 500 years old. Santo Domingo is proud of the fact that this is where Columbus landed, and that it has the first church in all of the New World. Felix recommended the colonial Mimosa Restaurant and dinning on lobster pasta in their tranquil bricked mango tree courtyard was very enjoyable experience that took me back to my previous visit to Santo Domingo. Lobster Pasta 1lb short pasta 1 cup sun-dried tomatoes - chopped 4 tablespoons olive oil ½ cup of black olives - chopped 4 garlic cloves - chopped 1½ lb lobster meat- diced ⅓ cup white wine 1¼ teaspoon of salt

1 teaspoon of pepper ½ teaspoon of chili flakes ½ cup basil - chopped Cook pasta. Meanwhile saute tomatoes, olives and garlic in oil 3 minutes. Add lobster and cook until it turns white. Add wine and season with salt, pepper and chili. Add pasta and toss. Garnished with basil. Serves 4 Immigration, customs, navy and a security service, complete with a German Shepherd drug sniffing dog, came aboard the next morning as required by the US, required for all vessels heading to Puerto Rico. Rather bizarre. This dog REALLY did not want to come aboard, other than having to quickly remove all traces of our pancake breakfast to the shore, as it was confusing the poor dog, we had no problems and were soon on our way to Puerto Rico.

Business or Pleasure, AquaDrive will make your boat smoother, quieter and vibration free. The AquaDrive system solves a problem nearly a century old; the fact that marine engines are installed on soft engine mounts and attached almost rigidly to the propeller shaft. The very logic of AquaDrive is inescapable. An engine that is vibrating

on soft mounts needs total freedom of movement from its propshaft if noise and vibration are not to be transmitted to the hull. The AquaDrive provides just this freedom of movement. Tests proved that the AquaDrive with its softer engine mountings can reduce vibration by 95% and structure borne noise by 50% or more. For information, call Drivelines NW today.

“Ardea” in his (yes, his) natural habitat.

The 27 Month Plan:

How We Got Here was NOT Navigational! By Jon “Noj” Henderson

Isabel, would be graduating high school and getting her Associate Degree at that time, then going off to university. When that window opens, you have to jump! We dreamed about different ways to accomplish such a voyage. Budget was going to be a consideration for us throughout the 27 months and beyond. We decided that we wanted to be able to accommodate guests as a “Sea B&B” to help financially. For this reason, and to better handle offshore passagemaking, we needed a larger boat. Buying a bigger boat meant that we were going to have to sell the house and the old boat. Suddenly 27 months didn’t feel so long, so we broke down our time-line and made monthly goals and lists to move forward. It took us 12 of those 27 months and the investment of a crazy amount of labor, but we finally we got the house ready to put on the market. Fortunately, we were able to The bigger, new-to-them boat meant projects and find a buyer fairly quickly. yard time. More than they could have imagined! Check.

We’re here, and we’re not talking about a physical destination. We’re cruising! The route wasn’t easy, but we did it and you can too. Many people dream about sailing off into the sunset someday. My wife, Michele, and I shared this dream. During a winter cruise in the San Juan Islands we started a notebook titled, 27 Months: Countdown to the Callaloo Cruise Team Epic Adventure of Awesomeness. The date was chosen because Michele’s youngest daughter,

At the same time, we enlisted my sailing buddy and friend since childhood, Ben Braden, to work as our yacht broker. He showed us many options that met our requirements of two staterooms and two heads, while keeping within our limited price range. Eventually, he found the perfect boat. We test sailed the 1984 Beneteau Idylle 1350, agreed on a fair price, and purchased our new home Ardea. Check. Because of our limited budget, we had a real fixer upper on our hands. We spent the next several months, getting ever closer to 27, renovating. We have replaced, or are in the process of replacing, nearly everything on the boat. We have been very fortunate to be part of an incredible sailing community. We have had so much support. A couple different people upgraded their electronics and gave us their handme-downs.

Understanding

H Alternative Energy Sources By Jack and Alex Wilken

When we converted our sailboat from diesel to electric power (which we wrote about in the October and November 2015 issues of 48° North) filling the batteries took on a new significance. Whether your motivation is to be green here in our local waters or to be more autonomous on the open ocean, there are a variety of options and considerations involved in selecting an alternative energy source, storing it, and/or using your existing set-up more efficiently. There are four commonly discussed alternative sources: solar, wind, water, and fuel cells. All are renewable; so they are, in essence, self-contained, infinite sources of energy.

panel will not affect the performance of the other(s). The shadow from one shroud is enough to downgrade a panel’s output significantly. You see more and more sailboats with arches aft in an attempt to get the solar panels away from everything that can cast a shadow. One of the most innovative possibilities is panels incorporated into the mainsail (Figure 1). These are very thin and flexible and have proven to hold up in stormy conditions. They are affixed to the sail or can be laminated into the fabric itself. The panels on the non-sunny side can put out as much as 30 to 40% of their rated output with ambient light and reflection. There are also panels which have Solar a non-skid surface so that they can We have been looking at solar be mounted on the deck and walked panels for more than 40 years. Atlantic upon.

That way a shadow on one The typical solar efficiency range is between 12 - 23%, but we have read printed specs as high as 28%. This basically relates to how many amperes you will get out of a given size of panel. Depending on the efficiency of the panel, you might expect from 9 to 13 watts per sq. ft. of output. A rule of thumb is to figure on full output for 5 hours a day. This can be better if your mount allows you to keep the surface of the panel at a right angle to the rays of the sun by changing position as the Figure 1: Solar panels sewn or laminated into the day goes on. mainsail.

Figure 2: “A” is a fixed unit mounted on the transom that can be swung down into the water. “B” is the propeller that is mounted directly to the sealed generator. Wind Wind generators can put out a lot more power than solar for the same price, but they depend on wind speed for output. As long as the wind blows, it can generate day and night. The problem is we often seek to reduce the wind. Long distance trips are normally plotted so the prevailing wind (and current) are behind you, reducing the apparent wind. If you need more power from your wind generator, you could consider beating to windward for greater apparent wind; it could be more pleasant than running a diesel motor to make power! We have yet to hear of someone picking the windiest possible anchorage because of their wind generator. Newer models tend to be quieter, but, if the generator is spinning, it will make at least some noise. The wind is, of course, free. Water Trolling generators work on the same principle as wind generatorspower made by spinning a propeller. This can be a dedicated trolling generator of which there are two main kinds: a taffrail trolling gen that is essentially a propeller towed on a line, or a fixed unit mounted on the transom that can be swung down into the water (Figure 2). If you have an electric drive, it can regenerate off the main propeller (Figure 3), or you can rig an alternator

Normally, this would be geared to make the most of the rpms from the shaft while sailing and have the ability to disengage when powering. As long as your boat is moving through the water, it can make power. Normally, you need to get to at least 7 knots to make significant power (Figure 4). So, it won’t do you much good at anchor. Also, like anything else that sticks out of the hull, it is vulnerable to impact.

Salish Sea Sailing Knowledge Applied Offshore in Pacific Ocean Graduate School By Becca Guillote The Salish Sea taught me to sail, and I’d say she* did a pretty good job. First and foremost, she ensured I understood that a wind forecast was a human-manufactured hypothesis and not fact. The true wind conditions can be vastly different from what the monotone VHF voice promises. Rounding Point No Point on our way home to Shilshole one late fall day, I was optimistically rigging the spinnaker as the wind began to fill in behind us. I was reaching to attach the halyard when we rounded the point and got slammed with 25 knots out of the SE and preceded to bash our way home at 3 knots through choppy seas and strong winds. The spinnaker bag was still on deck when we pulled in, drenched and unopened. She taught me about a boat’s limits; how comfortable boats are with a bit of heel, how much sail is too much in big winds and how high the boat is willing to carry a spinnaker before she’s overpowered. We were coming into the final leg of my first Round the County race with the asymmetrical kite * Please don’t be offended by my assignment of gender; we do not have a non-gendered pronoun in English and “he/she/it” just doesn’t have the same ring to it. 34

up in 15 knots of wind just forward of the beam. As we passed the last rock outcropping and began our turn towards the windward finish line, I was poised on the bow pulpit, spike in hand, every muscle of my body tense as I felt the boat accelerate, heel and dig in before straightening out again as we pushed her to carry the kite further and further upwind. Accelerate – heel – dig in. My arm had already shot out when the call came from the cockpit “blow

the sheet!” The tack of the sail exploded skyward as the boat jolted upright and the jib came sprinting up the forestay. There – that was the limit. I felt it and acted before I was consciously aware of the edge. Some of the lessons were more specific to her waters – like the strength and vehemence of tides and the currents they produce. To drive this message home, she made us motor at a dreadful 3 knots overground for hours and once stopped us in our tracks when the winds whipped up against the current in Johnstone Strait. Waiting for the tide to turn at Yuculta Rapids, we dropped the anchor and clambered over the point to watch as the rapids gained power and velocity before leveling out to a harmless navigable lake. Peppered among the sailing instruction came little life lessons that I was unaware I was absorbing. Plans are there to be changed and the changes are often not up to the plan maker. Traveling by sea requires flexibility, patience, and an observant eye. Spending time with whales makes life better, and is worth whatever hassle is required every time. There are an unquantifiable number of protrusions on a boat to stub a toe and bruise a shin (I still haven’t mastered that one). You can bring tomatoes back from Canada only if they are cut up. The Salish Sea offered a fast track sailing education, but she lacked the

We have been working feverishly on our boat to prepare her for this journey, testing out the new systems and upgraded hardware on the Salish Sea over the years. Unfortunately, the Sea just didn’t have the power to really put Halcyon to the test. We had been sailing down the coast in 20-25 knots for two days when the wind suddenly built to an unforecasted 35 knots and stayed there. By the end of the day, we had ducked into Crescent City, a conveniently placed port for a night’s sleep and awoke to assess the damage.

Building Bella By David Cross

I decided I would write a little article about a sailboat that I built. She has the very distinctive look of a multichine boat. You may walk the docks for days at marinas up and down the West Coast and never see another one. In fact, she is from a design that has had maybe 20 boats built. I modified the design and construction to make her what I believe to be a uniquely Pacific Northwest sailboat. Bella’s look is very much like that of a larger Thunderbird with a modified pilothouse. When we first took her out we got a lot of “is that a T-Bird?” which, of course, I take mostly as a compliment. Her nickname is “Big Bird” don’t use it around me, or I might have to set you straight. My decision to build her is quite simple: everybody does something, 36

and I build sailboats. I started building boats in 1985 and, for the most part, have been building something ever since. Bella is the sixth boat I have built, the largest, and the last. When I turned fifty, I knew I had one more boat in me. I didn’t want to wait end up saying “I wished I had built that boat.” Once I decided to build another boat, the next steps were to refinance the house and find a design. The refinancing was the easy part! Some of the things that make Bella look like (I will say it) a “Big Bird” are exactly the things I was looking for: a chined hull, which I like for its sailing qualities; a pilot house look; and ease of construction (that last part is a lie, but more on that later). I looked at and liked designs by Dudley Dix and Sam Devlin. If I wouldn’t have found this November 2016

design, I would have built one of their designs. But, enter Roberto Barros of B&G Yacht Design (out of Brazil at the time, now they’re in Australia). When I first saw it, I knew this is something I can work with. I got the plans and started studying. So, let’s get down to what she is all about. The plans from Roberto are metric and I always wanted to build in that scale. You have to think in that scale. Ten centimeters is not four inches, it’s ten centimeters. Due respect to Roberto, I had the plans changed to add one meter to the mast height, double spreaders, and a keel that was deeper, thinner and made of lead. In developing the hull, I vacuumed bagged the plywood sections together. I am a disciple of the Gougeon Brothers W.E.S.T systems. I’ve got all of their


Bella the beautiful, Bella the brave, I see you smiling At each passing wave. Wood gives you life, And Wind lifts your soul, Bella the beautiful, Bella the bold. -A poem by David Cross books and all my previous boats were built with their products, philosophy and building technique. When asked what she is built from I say a composite of epoxy, fiberglass, plywood, CVG, sweat, blood and tears. If you ever catch yourself thinking about owning a 30’ sailboat and say, “boy I could save money if built one,” back away from the magazine and get back on your medications. Saving money is not even in the conversation. I built a 30’ sailboat not because I wanted to own a 30’ sailboat, but because I wanted to build a 30‘ sailboat. That’s a big difference. And, big doesn’t even begin to describe the scope of the project. The engine is a 10hp electric inboard, and it is fantastic. But, if you do not have an on-board charging system of solar panels (wind generator, gas generator, fuel cells, or whatever) you are not going to go very fast for very long. I have four 8D batteries in series that gets me 48 volts at 240 amp hours. I can go 4 knots for 4 to 5 hours. I can go hull speed for about an hour or so. I can go 2 knots all day long. An upshot of what an electric motor does for you is that it makes you a better sailor. If the winds are light I can run a couple of amps and get the apparent wind working for me. The mainsail is always up and tide book is always out. Bella is a sailboat. Speaking of sails, I had Bella’s sails built locally, and I think they look great and sail beautifully. The original keel design was made of cast iron. This was one of my first design changes. B&G worked up 3 different keel designs until I got the one that looked right. Talk about your BOAT BUCKS. As the price of lead went up, the price of the keel was going up on a monthly basis!

I give a lot of credit to B&G Yacht Designers. The taller mast with double spreaders was a straight forward design change. The keel was a little more involved. In the design changes I asked for, they never asked for additional compensation. And one of the coolest parts is that the design changes inspired by my requests have been incorporated into the stock Multichine 28 plans! We sail out of Tacoma, and we go south more than we go north. We race with CYC Tacoma Windseekers on Wednesday nights and get out for a few Saturdays. We win some and lose more and have a great time always. It took me ten years, almost to the day, to complete building Bella. So, now she’s complete...except for the dream. The dream has always been to build a boat and sail her to Hawaii. For the last 30 years, I’ve been gathering sailing skills and learning how to build boats. Retirement is so close I can taste it. That and a few more boat bucks to get her ready, and that dream will become reality. I could not have done this alone. I want to thank my wife Dawn, whose support and ability to help me brush and tip the paint was great. Without her help, none of this would have happened. My friend Tim helped me keep focused and was that helpful extra set of hands on so many Friday nights in the boat shop. Thank you to www.48North.com

Bella’s Particulars: • Length: 28’ when I am getting a slip, 30’ when I am bragging about her, actual LOA: 29’ 6” • Waterline: 24’ 9” • Beam: 10’ 5” • Draft: 5’ 5” • Ballast: 2643 lbs. • Displacement: 7885 lbs. though I have never weighed her but I imagine she is about 300 lbs lighter than the designed plans. my friend Butch who always answered “that’s a good idea, but what if?”; and to Dean who did most of the rigging; and to my Dad and the Illinois River who both got me into sailing. The list of thank yous is too long to continue. My dad taught me to make a big project a number of small projects and to keep going until she floats. For ten years “the boat” is all I talked about. The commitment is huge. I worked on it every day. Taking a vacation just meant I could work on her more. So if you are considering building a boat make sure you are doing it for the right reason. It will take longer than you think and cost more than you thought. But, it has been very, very rewarding for me. David Cross and “Bella” both call Tacoma home. 37

his year ’s iteration of Corinthian Yacht Club of Seattle’s Puget Sound Sailing Championships (PSSC) were, if nothing else, dramatic. An altered format (small boats after big boats, and a shifted weekend) was the start of the disruptions. The weekend of October 8-9th, started with gusty, warm and wet southerlies, which combined with significant current and large shifts, created challenging conditions for the 67 starters, split between the north course off Carkeek Park, and the south fleet off Shilshole Bay Marina.

Fortunately, the tough crew on Here and Now scrambled back on board, secured the sails and finished the race. Kudos to both that crew, and to CYC RC veteran Troy Childs on the whaler, and the CYC race committee for their immediate response to what turned out to be nothing more than a great story, but could have been far worse. The Sierra 26, Uno, had a bad jibe too. The main sheet became accidently re-cleated and the 25 knot winds put her down hard and wet...

Continuous 25 knots southerlies drove sheets of rain into the faces of drivers, preventing them from picking up the 35 knot stingers that played havoc with both fleets. Torn sails, broken gear and at least one rig down were the result, and drop outs continued throughout the day. The north course suffered from mark anchoring challenges (always an issue when anchoring in 600’ deep water on windy days) and only one race was completed for the day. On the south course, the smaller boats (including a great turn out by the local Moore 24 fleet…11 boats!

Puget Sound Sailing Championship

Small Boats

T

he weekend of October 15-16th, was the dinghy classes and the J/24 Regional Championships. All day Friday, the National Weather Service, NOAA, and Sail Flow predicted record breaking (and damaging) wind and rain for Saturday and certainly Friday’s windstorm (46 knots at West Point midday on Friday, with 10 foot seas breaking over the Shilshole Marina breakwater) did nothing to calm those concerns. The U.S. Coast Guard was in contact with CYC race management, and eventually a decision was made to cancel racing on Saturday in anticipation of the storm. Disappointed racers gathered on Saturday at CYC notwithstanding, entertained by an ad hoc racing seminar, great food and conversation. Predictably, the promised winds

showed up very late in the day, and with far less punch than forecast. The event coordinators were wise to follow USCG advice, but it was a fine lesson in the fickleness of local weather forecasting. Fortunately good spirit and understanding were in abundance, and this was rewarded by a great day of breezy sailing on Sunday. On the north course, the J/24 Regionals had a 23 boat fleet racing for their Regional Championships, with the winner qualifying for a slot in the 2017 World Championships. Not surprisingly, Keith Whittemore and his veteran crew prevailed and will represent our region and CYC in Ontario, Canada in this prestigious regatta. On the south course, the 30 knot southerlies and rain squalls kept a large number of crews snug at home watching the Seahawks game, but those who did come out were rewarded with a solid day of round the buoy racing. As the day wound down, so did the wind, sending racers home tired, wet, and happy. Concluding, this year ’s PSSC was a fine example of the vagaries of fall sailing on Puget Sound. And it was fun!

As you read on page 38, the Moore 24s just had their PNW Regional Championship. Moore 24 National Champion, Andy Schwenk, gives us a view inside the fun-loving Moore fleet. “Just what do you all have planned for the day?” asked the perplexed breakfast server at a local Ballard fisherman’s bar. The Pacific Northwest Moore 24 fleet are not your average sailors. It’s a younger crowd than the scene at the yacht club, and is a remarkably even split between male and female. Decked out in brightly colored hi-tech gear with boat names like M o re U f f D a a n d M o o r a l i t y , the breakfast crew of 20 sailors boisterously discussed floating #3 jib blocks and rachet blocks and the promise of the breezy forecast. I think we caught the locals a little off guard. Sailors are a tight knit bunch, and that may be even more true in the Moore 24 fleet. The well-attended and impromptu breakfast indicates the kind of camaraderie that is typical in the Moore fleet. The fleet kicks off the season at the Three Bridge Fiasco on San Francisco Bay, this double and single handed event draws as many 300 total boats and at least 25 Moores. They also travel to some of the best sailing venues on the West Coast: Huntington Lake, Tahoe and Whiskeytown (northern CA). There is nothing that compares to battling the high winds and warm fresh water in the Columbia River Gorge. In each regatta venue there is a known gathering place where the Moore fleet hangs out. Usually there are some hijinks and antics at each regatta: trailer Olympics, half ball, and a crazy kind of mixed-up game of ping pong that is somewhat similar to musical chairs. I'm not sure if the key to all this is the boat or the people. The boat is easier to explain. In production in Santa Cruz, California, from 1972-1988, 160 were produced. Over 100 are still actively sailing, with one currently on a circumnavigation by an octogenarian. Most have been refit at least once, each summer at least a few race to Hawaii, and a number of racers are second generation owners. They are light by 1972 standards, in

Photo by Jan Anderson. fact they were the first production boat in a class once labeled ULDB’s (ultra light displacement boats), but this term has faded with the advent of carbon and other hi-tech building materials. Still, I once saw the fleet get together and lend a shoulder to a boat that was just a little crooked on the trailer, and even though she weighs just a hair over an even ton, she wiggled right into place. There is a slick system that makes her ramp launchable and two healthy sailors can tip the mast up without breaking a sweat. They are certainly one of the most colorful fleets on the water and though they are a one design fleet, there is plenty of room to set yours up the way you like it, within reason. No tampering with basic hull shape is allowed, but deck layouts vary from open transom to a sport deck with a little wedge shaped cabin. She was designed to surf downwind but I can tell you from experience if you can keep the dirty side down in the puffs, she will stay on a plane for extended periods. The local PNW fleet has been getting about a dozen on the line for their premier events. Typically at least four female skippers and almost all the foredecks are ruled by the fairer sex. The crew weight is 825 pounds at National events, but the PNW fleet has a thing for beer and bacon so this rule is more of a guideline north of California. www.48North.com

I noticed some new faces, as well as the old guard, at the PNW fleet championship sailed as part of CYC Seattle’s Puget Sound Sailing Championship regatta. Affectionately referred to as the Hood River mafia, two boats made the trek north. The ladies held down the even slots in the standings winning 2nd, 4th and 6th respectively. I have battled against Kathryn Meyer, owner of More Cowbell, and also had the privilege of sailing with her on San Francisco Bay. Kathryn’s talent with a needle is matched by her skill with a tiller and she took 2nd place. Every story needs a hero and, in this case, it’s my all time favorite cancer survivor, Sarah Mars Raymoure, ably assisted by her best crewperson and husband Geoff, lit the afterburners to get up for a solid 4th. To add the international flair, the ever courteous and cordial Canadian husband/wife team of Joy and Stuart, slipped in for a 6th. My own mother had two theories: never head out on a boat with a waterline shorter than your own age and, the further one gets from the beer cooler, the more danger that individual is in. These theories are key to the foredeck crews of the Moore 24 - most are violating the first rule, and they are all as far as you can get from the cerveza when it comes time to hoist the spinnaker. In all honesty, it isn’t the putting up the spinnaker in 30 knot puffs that is tricky, it’s getting it down. Every foredeck trooper 41

knows this will be their fate as the leeward mark quickly approaches. Still when they reach out for the sheet and call for the halyard to be let go, it’s the busiest eight seconds of the rodeo. The colorful kite does it’s best to give you a rinse in the saltchuck while you know that if the spinnaker cloth accidently gets fed through the #3 jib fairlead, as the skipper heads back upwind and the grinder starts to do his thing, well let’s just say the sailmaker will be able to purchase that new pair of skis. The fleet always pulls together and it’s not uncommon for the granddaddy of the fleet to assist the

newbies by selling his last season championship sails at bargain prices. This regatta even provided a spare boom for the out of towners. Every fleet needs a cheerleader and Ben and Jen Braden, aboard More Uff Da, are that person, times two. They are the ones that set up and just as importantly clean up the fleet BBQ party and even find a place to host it in case of rain. That is just their way, when they aren’t sailing they’re teaching disabled skiing or being active in their local Elks club and raising thousands for charity. Clearly Ben gets it done on the course, not even one wipeout all weekend long.

His calm demeanor and quick wit make for a fantastic experience for the whole crew. Speaking of BBQ, you don’t have to wait until you get to the dock since Ben and Jen sail with one on their stern rail. The code is simple, just look for the flag on the backstay, the critter on the flag is what’s on the menu, today’s fare was prawns! Yes, maybe the BBQ looks too big bolted to the stern pulpit, but those Moore sailors have a big appetite and the Big Daddy always puts on enough grub to share. photos by Jan Anderson PSSC results on page 45

oulweather Bluff is a race of two F seasons. Even though it always takes place the first weekend of

October, sometimes it’s the last race of the summer, with sunny skies and warm, light winds. Other times it is the first race of the fall, with strong winds, cooler temperatures, and a bit of rain. Either way, it’s different than most races in the Salish Sea, with a reverse start, multiple courses, and, typically long reaching legs. It draws both casual racers and those who take it more seriously, as it is one of the last qualifying races for the SYC Grand Prix. This year, Foulweather Bluff (FWB) took place in the fall, with winds ranging from 8 knots at the start to the mid twenties on the upwind leg for those finishing the long course. Entered boats ranged from Lady Eileen, a Baba 30, all the way up to the TP 52s, Smoke and Glory. Just like it’s a race of two seasons, FWB is also two different races, with those on the shorter course experiencing different challenges and conditions than those on the long course From Reini Freywald, aboard “Kiwi Express,” on the Long Course: Winds at the start were 8-10 knots from the east. Darker waters were visible to the southwest. For us, it was a hard call to either cover our fleet sailing on the easterly breeze or gybe west to the new breeze. We went west, followed by our favorite rival, Here & Now. It was the right call. Rounding Scatchet Head, it was tight racing between Nor’wester, Here & Now, and Kiwi Express. The tight reach across to the Foulweather Bluff buoy was exciting and fast with several near round ups. Most boats sailed a straight course to the mark. WRONG! Going further north was the correct choice taken by boats including Glory and Freeflyte, who came out ahead of boats sailing the rhumb line. (More studying of currents around FWB required before next year ’s race.) Here & Now outpointed and out sailed us back south to Point No Point and jumped into a big lead. On the final leg from Point No Point to Edmonds, the wind speed increased to the mid-twenties and we both

reefed. Boats able to point high took advantage of a big persistent shift left, and sailed on starboard tack directly to the finish. Low pointers like ourselves hit the beach north of Edmonds and worked the easterly breeze on port tack. From David Odendahl, aboard “Kyrie” on the Short Course: We started in a southeasterly that was blowing about 12 knots and rising. Sweet Sue II took an early lead with Rose following behind. We faced the same choice as Kiwi Express did and went alone to the west in search of more breeze and favorable current. There was enough of an easterly component to the wind that the rest of the fleet sailed the rhumb line to the first mark at Scatchet Head By the time the first division rounded Scatchet Head, the later

divisions were catching up as the leading boats headed to the mark at Pilot Point. Winds were increasing up to the mid-teens with several boats over canvassed and a bit out of control. The rounding at Pilot Point was easy, with a bit of shelter from the coastline that reduced winds and waves. Heading back to the finish against a still ebbing current, the winds continued to increase a bit south of the entrance to Admiralty Inlet and Possession Sound. Congratulations to CYC Seattle, who won the Grand Perpetual Foulweather Bluff team award, and thanks the folks from CYC Edmonds who ran the race and those who participated. We’re looking forward to seeing you again October 7, 2017. photos by Jan Anderson results on page 45

It looked like a great day for sailing—light breeze early in the morning, warm September sun, picturesque clouds in a beautiful blue sky. Twenty sailboats registered for the 24th Annual Northwest Harvest Benefit Race, sponsored by Seattle Singles Yacht Club. The September 24th race started out of Shilshole in three divisions—Flying Sails Fast, Flying Sails Slow, and Non-flying

Sails. The sailors reported eight knots of wind at the noon start. Then, the wind started to wimp out—dropping to three knots and then little puffs, not enough for most boats to maneuver against the current. Luckily some boats were able to catch enough wind to get around the course before the current changed and the wind died. Others finally doused their sails and motored in.

The annual race was for a good cause—providing food and money to Northwest Harvest, a local food bank. Each boat was asked to donate money or food equal to the length of the vessel and over 1,000 pounds of food was collected in one day! After the race, the sailors and other members of SSYC raised more money for Northwest Harvest at an auction/dinner/dance. This year ’s theme was “Cirque de Sea” and the club raised over $11,000 to help feed the hungry. At 24 years, Seattle Singles Yacht Club is the second longest donor to the food bank and has provided more than one million meals to hungry Washingtonians. SSYC wants to thank the racing skippers and all the local businesses who donated to the race and auction. We hope you can join us again next year for our race and party which is scheduled for September 23rd. by Janet Grimley photos courtesy of SSYC results on page 45

swiftsure yachts The logbook for November 2016 The Sceptre 41 is one of the most respected Northwest cruising sailboats ever built. The raised salon/galley is bright and airy. The cockpit is sheltered behind a windshield and canvas dodger. A walk-through transom with swim platform makes for easy access to the water, dock or dinghy. Top quality construction details and materials have caused these boats to hold their value. While most Sceptres cruise the Pacific Northwest, others have ventured forth, circumnavigating, and providing safe, speedy and comfortable passage for their crews. Intrepid is super clean, has dual heating systems, in-mast furling, and updated electronics.
