It’s the People Whether it’s on a boat, at the yacht club bar over a beer, or in the pages of this fine publication, if you’ve encountered me waxing philosophical about sailing there’s a good chance this isn’t the first time you’ve heard me say, “I love sailing more than anything else. But frankly, it could be bowling, it could be darts, it could be gardening... the activity almost doesn’t matter. If you love the people, that’s what will keep you coming back.” This is reinforced for me around every turn, eddy, or wind shift. The people that make up our community have become some of my closest friends. I love to interact with these friends on the water. Among many other examples, every week for the last few summers, I get to sail past a boat I used to race on that’s crewed by some of my best buds. When I holler hello in our port-starboard cross, I’m greeting a boat owner who didn’t really race before he and I decided to race together, an ambitious former college sailor who had been entirely too unplugged from the Seattle sailing scene, and one of my best friends from outside of sailing who has become as passionate about it as anyone. Let’s just say it makes my week. Every week. The point of that little story, however, is not to toot anyone’s horn, especially not my own. I bring this up as a reminder that the friendships we make on boats last as long as any I’m aware of. And, though it’s hard to say which came first, they’re still sailing and we’re still close pals. More importantly, they’ve become such good friends, they wouldn’t dream of missing a Wednesday night; not because of the racing, but because of the camaraderie. We’re wrapping up the sunny part of the sailing season here in the Pacific Northwest. While the temperatures fall, the breeze builds. Experienced sailors know, your non-sailing friends are about to stop asking you to take them sailing. But, don’t think for a second that the sailing season is over here. It never ends in the Pacific Northwest! Nonetheless, autumn, and especially winter, sailing can have a solitary feel. And though it’s a perspective that’s unpopular to perpetuate in the eyes of those who sell sailing to newcomers, we all know that it isn’t always comfortable. A friend who knows the open ocean well recently said to me, “we are privileged to suffer together.” So, as a believer in the relationships formed on boats, I think we have to bundle our friends up and continue to bring them sailing into the fall and winter. I’m not a big fan of “saving sailing” literature, and I hope this doesn’t fall into this category. Sailing needs saving less than it needs re-branding. However, I feel more than ever that the number of people sailing is far fewer than the number of people who should be sailing. And unlike skiing, where the quality of the experience often decreases as the number of people sharing the same patch of snow increases, in sailing we get to have more fun as the participation numbers rise. We already have a community of “keepers.” Nothing is going to change that. But, just because we keep coming back doesn’t mean it’s not important to expand our community. It’s not enough just to have open doors. We ought to turn on the tractor beam! The sailing community belongs to all of us, even for those who don’t know it yet. In no time, you’ll be passing new friends port and starboard, yelling an excited hello, and feeling all the good feelings I so look forward to every Wednesday. I’ll see you on the water, Joe Cline Editor, 48° North 6

Round the County, Off the Charts Hey Joe, Round the County has 25 boats signed up in first hour that registration is open. Thought you might think this is newsworthy. Andy Schwenk S/V Wild Rumpus Owner, Northwest Rigging That is newsworthy and cool! What momentum that regatta has. You know I love the race. I even sent a message to prod the crew boss to make sure we were got signed up before it sells out! It’s just a great race with that destination wedding feel. At noon on the day we’re going to press, less than 30 hours after registration opened, there are now 93 boats registered. Unreal.

Race Results in 48° North

One Hand Opening

Joe,

Straight or Serrated Locking Blade

Your magazine would be a lot more fun to read if the results were listed for the races. I know that’s true for us exracers and I believe it would be true for the current racing fleet boat owners and crew. They used to be included with boat name, boat type, skipper, rating, club and order of finish for total boats in the race. It’s a pain in the a** to have to look up the results on a website. It’s just my opinion, but possibly that of many others.

Superior Blade Sharpness And Durability

Al Hill Former owner, S/V SISU, Custom Miller 41 Thank you for your feedback, Al. This is a near-constant topic of conversation around 48°N Headquarters. I won’t go too much inside baseball, but the reason we went away from printing results is because space in the magazine is limited and expensive. As the results were available elsewhere, we thought we’d try to bring you more stories that weren’t available elsewhere. But, we hear you, and yours is not the first request we’ve had to put results back in the mag. So, we’re going to try a condensed results page for a few months. Check out page 48 and let us know what you think! Correction on Book Price Dear 48° North,

Thank you for your review of the paperback release of my book, Voyages to Windward: Sailing Adventures on Vancouver Island’s West Coast. Unfortunately, the price you cited is the price only in Canada. The US price is considerably less, $36.95. Since this is significant enough to discourage some readers from purchasing it, I hope you will print a correction. Thanks, Elsie Hulsizer Sorry about that, Elsie. Thanks for helping us get it right. www.48North.com

I’m happy to announce that our Southern Cross 35, S/V SeaSwift, has completed her three year voyage from Everett, WA to Bradenton, FL on April 4, 2016. The approximate 7,000 mile voyaging plan followed the idea of sailing the six month “good weather” season from November through April, then storing the boat during the six months of “hurricane” season May through October. The adventure began in August of 2013, as we headed south to San Francisco to enjoy the America’s Cup. Unfortunately, we chose to leave for San Diego when the Cup score was eight races to one. Who would have ever guessed the outcome? The next leg was the 20th annual Baja Ha-Ha. What an awesome program. The best facet of this event is that when you arrive at Cabo San Lucas you now have dozens of new like-minded friends who are also enjoying the cruising lifestyle and are heading roughly the same direction you are! We enjoyed the Pacific coast of Mexico until May 2014, at which time SeaSwift was stored in the marina at Barra De Navidad. In November, the journey resumed on down the coast, crossing the Gulf of Tehauntepec to Chiapas, Mexico. Then continuing through the Pacific countries of Central America to the Panama Canal. We transited the Panama Canal in March of 2015 and thank you 48°N for posting our celebration picture! The San Blas Islands were next and were very enjoyable, after which we headed north to Bocas Del Toro, Panama. Here, SeaSwift was stored May through October again. Returning to SeaSwift in late October 2015 she was readied for sea and pointed north towards the islands of San Andres and Providencia (owned by Columbia). After a lengthy stay we headed further north to the Bay Islands, Honduras, and we got to see Guanaja, Roatan and Utila. From there, we sailed northwest to Guatemala so we could experience the Rio Dulce, a beautiful inland waterway to the interior of the country and a great hurricane hole. www.48North.com


Letters After a three week visit, it was time to head north to Isles Mujeres, Mexico, which lies just off Cancun. While anchored at Isles Mujeres, we had an opportunity to take a flight over to Cuba for a five-day tour. This proved to truly be an amazing trip! The plan had been to actually to spend one more year in the Caribbean and store the boat in Rio Dulce. However, when returning to SeaSwift from Cuba, a great weather window opened up and I decided to make for Florida and complete the journey this year. The final leg of the journey proved to be the sail of a lifetime, completing this adventure of a lifetime. The attached photo of our cockpit chartplotter shows the actual path traveled. The waypoints are approximately 50 miles apart. SeaSwift was literally on rails, we sailed all of the 435 miles in 71 hours, on virtually a straight rhumb line to Bradenton, FL. There was a full moon on the middle night of our three-night of the passage making for great night sailing. Winds were 10 to 20 kts, seas 3 to 6 feet, dolphins joined the boat several times as did seabirds, and we even saw two loggerhead turtles.

Currently, SeaSwift is stored on the hard on the gulf coast of Florida. The next adventure will begin this December after a fall refit. She will be re-floated and pointed south towards Key West and then onto the Bahamas. This spring, the decision will be finalized to either head back north to Florida for hurricane season or sail southwest for Trinidad. Either way... win, win! I want to say thank you to 48° North Magazine for supporting our sailing community and all that your magazine does to help keep our dreams alive. Dreams do come true!

Letters Doug Logan and the Predecessor to R2AK Joe, I saw your article about the Race to Alaska in 48° North and it made me think of Doug Logan’s earlier version of the R2AK race in the 1940s, “The Great Canoe Race.” I don’t know if very many remember Doug Logan in Ballard any more. He died in 2005, but he was a fixture and I think a unique maritime “treasure.” “Uncle” Doug was an old friend. I still have the davits off his 1920s-era 138’ wooden purse seiner, Realist, he used to live on next to the Foss shipyard down on the ship canal. I tried to buy two davits from him one day, but he would not take any money. He told me to take all four davits he had on board. One of the big davits still has the bend in it from when the boat sank in the late 20s or early 30s alongside the dock in San Diego. To this day, I have no idea how my son and I even managed to man-handle them off the top deck of the tuna seiner, down to the shore, and lift them on top of the roof rack of the car - but somehow we did it without any cranes or winches. They are about 4” in diameter, and were solid galvanized steel, not hollow tubes, the small ones were 6’ and the big ones 15’! The roof rack still carried the dents and bends from carrying them home when I sold the car. I ended up giving Doug a scrimshawed sperm whale tooth with a drawing of the landing craft, Glacier, in return for the davits. Anyway, Doug is famous for, among other things, his race south from Alaska against a ship called the Aleutian. Below, find an except from an article that Doug wrote about his “Great Canoe Race” experience. Thanks, Bob Beegle

The Aleutian was about 260-feet, not a very big ship, and she made about 15 knots, which is pretty fast. Anyway, the chief mate and one of the third mates were having a drink with me at the Harbor Bar, and we got into an argument. The chief was an old friend of mine. We’d sailed together in the Merchant Marines-sailing S.U.P. [Sailors’ Union of the Pacific]. The argument was over the seaworthiness of my canoe. It was an Indian dugout canoe, a whaling canoe--a pretty good-size one. I’d bought it in La Push on the Washington coast in 1944 for $20 cash, and a shot-out .22 Special and a couple dozen #4 Victors. I’d restored the canoe pretty good, putting in some new seats and built a little transom on the stern just big enough to take an outboard. What a lot of people don’t know is the bottom of these ocean-going canoes is about four inches thick, tapering from the bottom, which is flat, on up to the www.48North.com


# 1 Selling LED Brand

Letters sides to about one inch at the gunnel. Then they’d always put a wear strip across the top of the gunnel which was four inches high. So there was quite a bit of freeboard with just me in the canoe. Anyway, I threw it on the back of a boat and took it up to Petersburg as my hunting canoe. I had a brand new 20-horse Merc on it that had just come out in 1948. It was a gorgeous rig, and I wasn’t about to take any guff about her seaworthiness. So I made a bet: that I could beat the Aleutian to Seattle. For a case of MacNaughton’s. We sailed at the same time, and I took off down the channel going like hell. The way I had the canoe rigged is I had a couple of 50-gallon drums with premixed gas and side bungs in ‘em, old lube-oil drums. This way I could run on a 50-gallon drum rather than a little six-gallon tank that came with the Mercury. I had a little Coleman gas stove, a couple flash-lights, and a box of grub and a handful of spare parts--spark plugs, etc. Of course, the Aleutian had to stop for four hours in Wrangell and another four hours in Ketchikan on the southbound trip. She could make a red hot 15 knots, but the canoe, planing, could do about 25 knots. So if I could stay awake, I figured I could beat her hands down. I’d forgotten how that canoe could beat a person to death in a light chop. I had a long handle on that Mercury and I’d stand up and grunt ‘til I had to sit down, first on one cheek, then the other. I’d get my sleeping bag and lean back with the tiller under my arm. Of course, I had my rain gear. It was a little damp out there. I stopped at Klemtu behind Cone Island there by Boat Bluff, where I slept at that little cannery for four hours, and had the watchman wake me up. Ran into a little chop crossing the Queen Charlottes, forcing me to slow down, but I made it to the locks in 40 hours and 8 minutes, which is an average speed of a little more than 18.5 knots. When I got there, I couldn’t even get out of that canoe, I was so stiff. But, I won my case of whiskey. In those days there was a locks slip that you got with a time and date stamped on it, so I had proof. That canoe is now on display at the Burke Museum in Seattle--up there in the middle of the University of Washington. I always thought I’d repeat the trip back up, but it’s a little slower up hill. I’m clear. - Doug Logan Sounds like quite a story from quite a guy, Bob. Thanks for sharing! It’s funny to think of the hair-brained schemes our pals come up with in bars. Afterall, it has already become PNW sailing lore that the founders of Race to Alaska dreamed it up after more than a few beverages at the beer tent at the Port Townsend Wooden Boat Festival! www.48North.com

40th Anniversary Port Townsend Wooden Boat Festival The Legacy Lives

Y

ou never know what folks are going to remember or how the ripples or waves we make affect the people around us - even for decades to come. My grandma called it legacy. I saw it when, at this year ’s 40th Wooden Boat Festival, the umpteenth person settled into the cockpit of my little wooden boat Pax, occasionally with a child or grandchild in tow, to tell a story about memories of a grandfather or great-grandfather. The living legacy preserved so unforgettably in wood and craftsmanship - was outshined only by their eyes and smiles as they shared their stories. It blurred the lines of past, present, and future.

16

For forty years, people have gathered in Point Hudson for the Festival simply called “Wooden Boat” to celebrate. We’ve watched the numbers grow - of boats, of beer kegs, of non-profits, marine trade businesses, and of people in general. As the winds of change increased, there were a few knock downs, not unlike like Martha during this year ’s Schooner Cup. The festival sailed on, sloughed off the waves, and plowed ahead. Another generation of new, inspired, and competent crew jumped in to reef, or hoist a spinnaker, or in this case, keep a small town boat festival alive and thriving. October 2016

www.48North.com

There are a thousand special moments in a day at the Wooden Boat Festival and only room here for a few. All are connected. First, the Lifetime Achievement awards (emceed by former recipient, Sam Devlin) were given to Canadian Tad Roberts, for Design, and beloved local sailor Ted Pike (in memoriam), for Community Spirit. In attendance were two generations of family and as many people as could pack the NWMC’s biggest rooms. The ceremony merged into the 40th Festival reunion, where festival founders - boatbuilder Sam Connor and WoodenBoat Magazine sales rep Tim Snider - first talked about


Lowtide the “best place in America for a Wooden Boat Festival” in 1977. To watch Tim and Sam and dozens of founders, directors, staff, and volunteers swap stories while standing on the deck of a building generations behind them built, overlooking that same “best place” filled to capacity with boats and ready for 10,000 people a day, left me in awe. The legacy lives. On Sunday, Jo Bailey stopped by Pax on her way to Sir Isaac, the 49’ boat relaunched this summer after a 12-year renovation by her son, John, and Ann. Leaning on a cane, she beamed her trademark smile and held her hand over her heart. I took it be Jo’s quick review for my new book, Finding PAX.

fifteen years. To see her smile, to hear her voice of encouragement, to link our hearts and history as she sails a generation ahead of me in life reminds me - it’s not just the history or the present that matters - it’s the legacy we leave for future generations. by Kaci Cronkhite Kaci Cronkhite is the author of the new book, Finding PAX. She served as director of the Wooden Boat Festival from 2002-2011 after decades working on the ocean, in Alaska, and on an Oklahoma cattle ranch. To order the book or find out more, go to kacicronkhite.com photos by Karen Higginson

Perhaps it was just her joy that Sir Isaac had won the NW Schooner Cup in record-breaking time - safely. Ted Pike had helped them find that boat. As a sailor, a writer, and adventurer (think Gunkholing series), Jo has been an inspiration of mine for decades. In recent years, accompanied by Dale Nordlund, she offered to help with whatever would help me finish the book while Dale, who died in February, would quiz me on the latest progress on Pax’s mystery. When she walked away, I thought of Dale, the first Lifetime Achievement recipient, and Ted Pike, the latest. I thought of all they had done for us and so many others. By celebrating their accomplishments, it felt like they were still with us. Jo and I have traded off writing the 48° North post-Festival article for www.48North.com

The youngest ever to solo circumnavigate the world will stop in Portland on her way to her new home in New Zealand. All are invited. Laura is now 20 years old, but started her trip at age 14 and completed the circle at 16. Serious planning started when she was 11. She had the support of her father, Dick, but he did not have the financial means and told her she would have to acquire sponsorship. A year later Laura told him that she had written letters and now had sponsors. That is just the beginning of her story. An award winning and Oscar nominated documentary film, called “Maidentrip,” was made by Jullian Schlesinger of her exploit. Laura has also written a book entitled One Girl One Dream.

Books Taleisin’s Tales – Sailing towards the Southern Cross includes stories from paradise and hard-won lessons in seamanship, as Lin Pardy reflects back on the first miles she and Larry sailed on their second cruising boat – one they built from trees they cut themselves then shaped into a small but very able blue water vessel. The story takes the reader from launching and sea trials through those initial cautious 1000 coastal miles between California and the Sea of Cortez, discussing everything from sail handling to dinghy racing to the relative luxuries of bicycles

and a custom-built sitztub to encounters, both pleasant and surprising, with sailors and locals along the Baja peninsula. Then it launches the reader across the Pacific on Taleisin’s first offshore leg to French Polynesia, through the Cook Islands and Tonga, then on to New Zealand. In the style readers have come to expect from Lin, this book relates stories sometimes harrowing, sometimes cautionary, sometimes hilarious – and often heartwarming, especially when it comes to

encounters with the people of the South Pacific who become family. If there is a lesson to be gained from reading Taleisin’s Tales, it’s that slowing the pace and taking each day as it comes brings unexpected moments of clarity and joy. And that sailing across an ocean on a small boat is not easy but, with the right partner and attitude, can be beautifully rewarding.

Of the world’s 17 species of penguins, 13 are threatened or endangered. Some penguins can swim up to 30 mph. The emperor penguin is the largest species at four feet tall and weighing about 100 pounds. The fairy penguin, at 10 inches tall and weighing two pounds, is the smallest. Penguins have toothlike barbs on their tongues and roof of mouth to aid them in swallowing slippery fish. Charles Darwin spent years studying barnacles while developing his idea of evolution.

Maritime Trivia by B ryan H enry

In spite of its scientific name, Hoplostethus atlanticus, the Orange Roughy (fish), lives in all oceans. The biggest known deep-sea fish is the Greenland shark, found at depths of more than 7,000 feet. Catfish have more taste buds than any other creature.

Lowtide There are more than 2,200 species of catfish. Members of the species are found on every continent except Antarctica. Of the oceans’ several hundred varieties of squid, they range in size from 0.8 inch to the largest animals without backbones on Earth. Plankton are free-floating organisms in the sea. Benthic organisms are attached to the bottom, and nektonic are free-swimming organisms.

with bow buoy you’re never alone

Relative to body size, the barnacle has the longest penis in the animal kingdom. It can extend to five times its resting length, greatly exceeding the animal’s body length. Some species of shrimp live for only several days to 120 days; others can live as long as six years. The group of whales known as rorquals (that include the blue, fin, sei, Bryde’s and minke whales), the name is from the Norwegian word for “grooved whale.”

Hassle-free docking for the shorthanded sailor

Bowhead whales can live for more than 200 years.

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.

Th e m e g a m o u t h s h a r k wa s discovered in the Pacific by scientists in 1976 and was given the name Megachasma pelagios, meaning “swimmimg bigmouth” because it swallowed a cargo chute that had been lowered as a sea anchor from their ship. Schools of migrating mullet form chains that stretch for more than 60 miles. More than 200 species of saltwater fish are protected by venomous spines. Hagfish digest food through their skin.

Now I’m only limited by the weather. - Jerry James (Inventor)

his is the time of year when we need to think about what to do to prepare our boat for the coming change in the weather, this may mean finding and fixing leaks. We have all had them, and they do not discriminate - they come from above or below the waterline. Leaks can be deluges or seep so slowly that all you see is salt crystals building up in some area because the water evaporates at a rate faster than the leak. Leaks are not only inconvenient, but many times can cause damage to the interior or gear that gets wet. One of our boats had a leaky chainplate that corroded just below the deck level and broke due the constant wetting and drying. The source of a leak is not always immediately obvious because

If you have keel bolts, they are a possible entry point, but, again, you will need to dry out the bilge to catch this one. Keep in mind that not all leaks must be exterior.

On our boat we normally have little water in the bilge, but all of a sudden the high water alarm went off and upon inspection we discovered that the bilge pump was off and the bilge was full. We had recently left the tank filling and some of the water was going into the bilge from a leak in the vent line.

Bristol Channel Cutter was designed by the late Lyle Hess. The vessel is attractive to blue water sailors because of her seaworthiness and outstanding performance. Cape George Marine Works builds the Bristol Channel Cutter and the Falmouth Cutter, along with their other range of vessels. In January 2011, Cape George rolled out their first completed hull using the original Sam L. Morse BCC mold.

a temporary fix that lasted for seven years with black Gorilla Tape until we finally fixed the leaks and painted the deck. However, to waterproof the hinge, we reapplied white (to match the paint) Gorilla Tape, and as far as we know, it is still dry. There are also tapes that are designed to be applied to wet surfaces. If the leak is below the waterline, there may be enough pressure behind the leak so that even Splash Zone will not have time to cure without the water forcing its way past. In this case, use a piece of wood or plastic that is 3/8” or more thick and a little bigger than the leaky area. Use something to wedge the piece in place and you should be good until your next haul out. Now that you have found your leak and are ready for the permanent solution, there are still options and tricks. Captain Tolley’s Creeping Crack Cure can be an excellent fix for small leaks where you can pool it at the entry point even if this means creating a dam with tape to create the pool (Figure 3, page 26). This milky liquid will seep into the channel and dry clear. Simply keep applying until it stops dripping. Check the inside during this process. If the liquid is running right through, stop, let it dry, and move on to the next, more viscous option, which is Liquid BoatLife. It is not as thin as Captain Tolley’s, but will work better on larger channels. It may be necessary to tape the inside to keep the sealant from running through. The other option is to recaulk with standard sealant. Eventually the only real solution for a piece of hardware may be to remove it completely and reinstall. When reinstalling, it is a good idea to tape all around the fitting when you dry fit. Make sure you have an even coat of sealant over the whole mating surface so that you will have at least some of it squeeze out everywhere. When tightening the fastenings, make sure that the bolt/machine screw does not turn, and only turn the nut so as not to squeeze out all the sealant. One way to create a gasket out of the sealant is to draw the fitting close with the fastenings, but not tight, and let the sealant cure or partially cure. Now, you can tighten it all the way down. If you do this, it is even more important not to let the bolts/machine screws turn

or you may break the seal. If there are sheet metal or wood screws, make sure to bed them well. When cleaning up, clean off as much sealant as possible before pulling the tape (Figure 4). Also, do not use solvent near the seal as it can work its way in and cause a leak. So, you found the leak and you stopped it, but there are still other ways to deal with some of these situations. We wrote about tape that can go on wet surfaces, but there is also tape that can be used to seal hoses, or create mast boots. The thing that these tapes have in common is that they have no adhesive. They are applied by

stretching them over themselves, and they stick only to themselves, acting as a single, molded piece. There are also alternatives to caulking and sealant such as rubber gaskets or butyl tape. We recently installed a port-light that used no sealant and does not leak. Leaks can drive you crazy. We hope that some of the above cures will make your boating dryer and more enjoyable!

Understanding Battens By Eric Taylor, of Taylor Sails

Battens are used to support the extra area (roach) designed into a sail. Roach increases sail area, which translates into a more powerful sail. Without battens, the added roach will collapse and flog. Battens can serve other purposes as well, such as affecting entry angle or draft shape, and they can prevent the leech from hooking and help it maintain a straight and clean, low-drag exit for the wind. Battens have been in use over a thousand years and come in a variety of materials, shapes and sizes. Early battens were made of wood. Modern batten material generally consists of fiberglass, epoxy, or carbon fiber. Carbon fiber offers considerable advantages of weight savings and stiffness, but you do have to pay an additional cost over fiberglass. There are a wide variety of tapers, stiffnesses, shapes and widths. Batten stock may be flat, solid round, hollow round, and diamond shape. Each of these can serve a particular purpose, and depending on the sail and the sailor’s preference, there is seldom only one suitable batten solution. Some sailors might want to have a couple different sets of battens depending on the conditions: stiff battens for heavy air, medium flex for all around conditions, and soft for light air. Sail trim tip: soft battens in the top of the sail close and hook the leech, and stiff upper battens open and add twist. In my experience, 95% of sailors elect to sail with battens. However, battenless sails are preferred by some offshore sailors because of their simplicity, easy storage, and lower maintenance. Battens tend to create extra chafe issues to the sails, rubbing on shrouds, potentially breaking, or even shooting out the end or front of the batten pockets, all creating necessary repairs. These are valid concerns, but sailing without battens generally places an extremely low priority on performance, if any at all. 28

In all likelihood, you have already been sailing your whole life with battens. The choice of a batten is a lot like the choice of a sail or even the choice of a boat - there is a lot of personal preference involved. If it was up to me, I’d likely opt for a well-built full-batten main for offshore use. Full-length battens can be a weight issue as well, so if you’d like to save a little weight and minimize some of the friction associated with a full-batten main, you might go the top two battens being full length and the remaining battens being partial. For the average Puget Sound sailor, I most frequently recommend full-length compression battens with a nice lazy jack or stack-pack setup. Batten Pockets Battens are inserted into pockets that are sewn onto the sail. Batten pockets can be placed at every conceivable angle. The pockets can be vertical for furling mains and jibs. If the sail furls onto a boom, the batten pockets will be horizontal. The pocket size will be determined by the size of sail, batten width, thickness,

and length. All full and partial-length batten pockets should be reinforced for chafe and any additional hardware used along the luff. Battens load into pockets in a variety of ways. Some examples are: • Top-loading pockets drop the batten in from the top. With partial length battens, elastic is sewn into the front of the pocket making the batten non-adjustable. • A Webbing/Velcro closure flap has the ability to add tension to the batten. This type of pocket needs to be reinforced at the front end so the batten does not chafe through the pocket. • The “Rocket tensioner” is a fully adjustable plastic batten tensioner you can tension with a screwdriver, typically held in place with a webbing or spectra loop. • Some webbing flaps can be tensioned by lashing a bit of line and a stainless steel ring sewn to the pocket. I usually build using the more contemporary method, which is the Webbing/Velcro style. It seems to be the most commonly used these days. The Rocket style is nice for highperformance full-batten mains used

Figure 1: This flat top trimaran main is using a set of soft flex, compression tapered battens. With computer analysis, we can measure the resulting difference in entry angle at the leading edge. The top section (75% draft stripe) has the max draft at 27% of the cord length. This in my mind is a bit too draft forward compared to the middle, 50% section with a 37% draft and the lower 75% section at 41% draft. Not very balanced is it? October 2016

on boats without backstays. More traditional sails with partial battens will still use the top-loading elastic style pockets. With full-length battens, there is added compression to the front end, so the pockets have a protective batten receptacle at the luff. Full-length battens may experience compression due to camber and luff curve that’s designed into the sail. In either case, this forward pressure creates more friction to the slides on the leading edge of the sail when raising and lowering. To help reduce this friction there are a variety of slides or batten cars and sail tracks to consider using. I think full-batten mains are great, but there are some other important aspects to full-length battens. There is a fine balance between over and under tensioning. Over tensioning will increase the sail’s camber (shape), though it can make it difficult for the sail to pop over and rotate through tacks, especially in light air. Under tensioning can remove camber and flatten a sail. Sail trim tip: A sure sign of an under-tensioned sail is vertical wrinkles along the length of the batten pocket. Choosing a Batten Sail designers work with batten manufacturers for each specific sail to determine the perfect fit: full-length versus partial-length, or no battens at all. Taper options, thickness, stiffness, and width are all considered. On a typical cruising main, the top batten is much softer than the other battens. As you progress towards the foot, the battens become stiffer. Battens are numbered from the top of the sail down. So it’s fair to expect batten number one to be softer than batten number four on this kind of sail. A sailor or sailmaker may choose tapered or un-tapered battens depending on preference or the sail design. Things like the boat, the amount of luff curve, the type of main, and the amount of roach all play a role. If I’m experimenting with battens, I’ll start with non-tapered and then tweak things from there. It’s easier to remove material than to add it. Taper options vary widely from non-tapered to flex tapered to compression tapered, and even reverse

Figure 2: This is the same main with the same settings (opposite tack) as Figure 1, with a set of stiffer non-tapered battens. The flying sail shape is flatter up top, producing finer entry and straighter exit. This setup proved to have better performance for that particular main sail and since the mast rotates, we were able increase the entry angle some with mast rotation. All three draft stripes in this photo measure very close to 45%, making for a nice smooth transition from top to bottom. For this particular project, the only issue I see with the non-tapered version is when sailing in light breeze and downwind the non-tapered battens tend to flatten the sails entry more than I’d like. So, the next step would be to add a little bit of taper to these battens, go for a sail, and inspect the modification. If all goes according to plan, we can call it good and a job well done! compression tapered. Tapered battens offer better draft control, keeping the draft forward of the center, and also can increase the entry angle. Nontapered battens have an even flex pattern, flattening the entry for a more draft back approach. Beware, though, if the non-tapered battens are too soft, as the breeze builds the draft will start to creep back in a bad way. Flex tapering is used for partiallength battens and never for full length, because they have a very soft tip at the forward end. This soft, tapered end eliminates a potential hard spot in the middle of the sail, but would cause a blunt or round profile at the leading edge if they were used as full-length battens. Compression tapered battens, typically used in full-batten mains and jibs, require removing or grinding the tip of the batten to a certain percentage back from the tip in order to create a more draft-forward shape. A typical cruising main I build will have compression tapers. When an old sail arrives for some maintenance work with un-tapered battens, I often suggest a batten makeover and replace them www.48North.com

October 2016

with compression tapered battens. If the sail isn’t too far gone, the results are noticeable. Reverse compression taper battens offer some unique attributes. The reverse taper allows for the front end to be full thickness then reversing the taper down to 15% of the batten length and then taper back to full thickness. Using this style of taper results in a flatter entry by locking the draft in its designed position, while keeping the leech end still stiff. This is a nice setup for high performance sails and boats. Some skiff, dinghy, and catamaran folks like this. It works great with a rotating mast! If your main is losing its shape from usual wear and tear, check your existing battens. If they are the flat un-tapered style, try doing a mainsail makeover by adding stiffer compression tapered battens for a better draft forward sail shape. You would be surprised at the difference a new set of high-quality battens can make in a sail’s shape and performance. - 48°N 29


From Racing to Cruising

Enjoyment, Satisfaction, and Skills Transfer By Alex Kimball

Five years ago, when it was time to start cruising on Gypsy Wind, our 36’ Nonsuch, I thought I would really miss racing. In fact, the first year I held onto the Wednesday night Thistle racing at Leschi on Lake Washington. Thistles represent one of the most competitive one design racing opportunities in our region, perhaps even nationwide, and I just couldn’t give it up! We would organize our cruising summer

schedule to come in for the Wednesday night racing. But in an unexpected turn, I began to notice I could apply skills and tactics I learned from racing in our new cruising life. This revelation was very satisfying to my inner racer. I’ve had a life full of racing excitement. I began sailing Dragons with my family at five years old. By age

Above: “Gypsy Wind” is a great platform to put racing skills to use! Right: Christina Marie is very experienced, and sails strictly for pleasure. October 2016 www.48North.com 30

eight, I moved to racing my own boats: Penguins and Sabots. I had a full racing career where I was privileged to race small boats all over the world in international competitions and Olympic campaigns. I even won the Laser National Championship in 1974. Racing small dinghies is a straight-up learning curve, regardless of the level of racing. It’s like learning sailing on steroids. My wonderful wife and sailing partner, Christina Marie, has also sailed all her life. She had raced locally with her family while growing up in Poulsbo. She now sails strictly for the pleasure of sailing, although she joined my Thistle racing crew and is a great foredeck. Why do any of us race? I do for the challenge of competition and the wonderful friends who willingly share talents and love talking boats. It’s easy to harvest ideas of proper trim, sail plans, and the skills or tactics to perform better in different current or weather conditions. But, I never realized how much of that knowledge I learned on the race course would apply to cruising until I began cruising myself. Preparation Preparation is necessary to be successful at anything. Planning a sailing season of races is no small feat, with considerations of crew, gear, travel, and all the projects it takes to get


a boat ready and safe. Similar diligence is required to plan a trip or vacation, whether it’s a ski trip, mountain climbing, or camping. We can’t enjoy these pleasures without preparation. Well, it turns out that preparation is every bit as important, if not more so, to the success of a cruising trip, be it for weekend or much longer. Before a season of cruising, Christina Marie and I sit down at the table with some wonderful cruising books in the same way that gardeners look at the seed catalog. They’re planning out a lush and fruitful springtime garden, we’re looking at planting the ideas for our next season of cruising. Once this float plan is in place, we refine it down to the day. This way, our racing map is laid out in front of us and we can begin analyzing the timing of tides and currents. I’ve done the same thing before countless races. This way, I know when the start time is! Just like in racing, we leave ourselves “outs” if things don’t seem to be panning out according to the best case scenario. But, I’ve been surprised how accurate we could be. For us, it’s fun to share the tools, the planning, and the delights of which harbors, bays, or single anchorages that you might stop and enjoy along the way. Maximization and Efficiency Here’s is another racing-oriented perspective: I love to maximize our distance while minimizing our time as cruisers. As an example, we can sail from our home port of Bell Harbor in Elliott Bay to Point No Point using the eddies and current paths, then continue on with a strong ebb current to reach Smith Island in the Strait of Juan de Fuca to join the next tide turn to sail up to Roche Harbor with the new flood. This gives can give us over 70 miles traveled in under 12 hours, a savings of at least a few hours over the alternative of bucking the tide. We can arrive at our destination in daylight. Perhaps most importantly, this kind of planning and preparation allows us to sail instead of motor whenever possible. This summer, we were out for 88 consecutive days. We traveled about 1500 miles. And to the surprise of

We were out 88 consecutive days this summer. We traveled 1500 miles. And we sailed 70% of the time. many local cruisers, we sailed more than 70% of the time. We anchored 44 nights. We cleared some tricky passages, like Gabriola Passage and Dent Rapids, under sail with the help of great float plans and by using our racing skills to take advantage of the winds and currents We sailed as much as we could. Some cruisers are able to sail more because they wait for the weather window. On the race course, you must sail in very light and very heavy wind, and we are happy doing that on Gypsy Wind. And as racers, we are in tune with the speeds we sail in different conditions and on different points of sail, and we incorporate that to our planning. On Gypsy Wind, we toast to sailing the rhumb line, the shortest and

most direct line to the chosen mark. So, we try to maximize our efficiency, and do our best to stick to the plan. A significant motivator for

this is hosting guests. This summer, we hosted 13 guests who traveled in and out by seaplane or ferries to meet up with us. Awareness Those who race are constantly aware of catching the right wind, riding lifts and tacking on headers to sail the shortest distance, or making gains by sailing in more advantageous current than their competitors. This mindset is equally helpful with cruising boats. Many cruising boat designs can’t sail as fast or point as high into the wind as racing boats, and thus need to capitalize on every decision. Paying attention to your surroundings is a key part of that. Even the best plans and preparation can’t tell you how the wind will shift. A racing boat is often full of chatter. Racers think out loud and look for consensus among the crew that yes, that’s a tide line ahead, or the pressure will build in the next 30 seconds. Include your cruising crew or partner in the same way! Discuss how the wind will react flowing off the next land mass or point.

Cruising boats today have such wonderful tools in place to give us information in real time. These tools give you the opportunity and the enjoyment of tracking your progress on the actual day of cruising! Christina Marie and I set way points and use them as milestones to sail by or adjust sailing corrections with to stay on course and try to match the planned timing of the plan. With instrumentation above and below deck there is no reason for your entire crew not to see all that’s going on. And just like on a race boat, it’s often the crew, not the skipper, who notice an important new variable first. We begin to tune our senses to the nature of the wind, just like we do racing. Not Everything is the Same While there is a lot of carryover from racing to cruising, some of the things that aren’t the same are pretty great too! For racers accustomed to sitting on the hard weather rail in soggy foul weather gear and heavy boots, it sure is nice to be warm dry and sitting anywhere you please on soft cushions,

When we race on the same local course, we develop local knowledge of what to expect on a low tide, high tide, or if the wind is from the south, or from the north. It doesn’t always pan out that way, but over time you learn all the tricks of that area. When you’re cruising new waters, everything is fresh. There are rocks and points you have never sailed around before. It’s like skiing fresh tracks in untouched snow through the trees.

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

Seagulls. Sorry, but there is no such thing. Gulls are found in the desert, high mountains, and northern Canada in the spruce forests – so how could that bird be a SEAgull? Got it? Now, onward. Our most common GULL in the Salish Sea is the glaucous-winged gull - a big, brash and aggressive yeller that will take a French fry bag right off your table at Iver’s. Glaucous means bluish-gray, a good description of these pale-looking gulls. But in the fall, another gull arrives from its breeding grounds in the boreal spruce forests of Canada, Bonaparte’s gull. They’ve spent their summers far to the north, first courting along the shores of freshwater lakes and then building nests of twigs and moss on branches of short spruce trees. In early autumn, after raising gull families, they head south as winter closes in. Many come to the Salish Sea.

This is one of the smallest gulls in North America, just a little over 13 inches long and weighing in at less than half a pound. Compared with the locals that measure in at 27 inches long and almost 4 pounds, they’re like little half-sized miniatures. They fly like ballerinas, gracefully turning and dipping, almost flamboyant in their aerial work and can easily be mistaken for a tern. Look for them along tidal rips and shallow shorelines where they plunge-dive for forage fish, unlike our big local gulls that couldn’t dive if their lives depended on it. Their dark heads lighten to white in winter except for a small dark ear patch. And, come spring, their heads darken again, the legs and feet brighten, and they head north for another summer in the spruce.

LESSONS LEARNED WHILE CRUISING Jamie & Behan Gifford

Field Tripping Through Life Every day is a field trip for our family. Today’s field is concrete and steel, and so loud! This is New York City: a living, breathing ecosystem much like coral reefs that we explored in the South Pacific, except smellier. These are places where great densities of organisms coexist in and around structures, in symbiotic and exploitational relationships. And as one does, regardless of whether you’re on a South Pacific island or in New York City, we went looking for good food. Eventually, we procured a box of cannolis (no filleting required). It was apparent to the cannoli maker that we were not from his reef, so he asked, “Where from?” Behan replied, “It’s complicated, we live on a boat and have been traveling around the world.” He jerked to a stop, except his head, which did a double-take-shake. “A BOAT! You live on… A BOAT?” he exclaimed, repeating it several times in disbelief. It’s possible that, in Manhattan, the word “boat” translates to “alien ship from a distant galaxy.” Even if not, I’d guess that the cannoli maker went home from work with some existential thoughts. He did make a nice cannoli!

Really though, in a city that offers so much culinary goodness, artistic expression, grand entertainment, and Goliath engineering, and where different cultures, languages, and lifestyles interact in such close proximity... why was this guy so gobsmacked because a family lives on a boat? Sometimes we forget that most people have never been on a field trip to swim with sharks, climb a volcano, trace petroglyphs, get bullied by an African Elephant, or feast with the children of headhunters. It’s possible that the cannoli maker has never left New York City! Field trips represent a tiny fraction of a conventional American education. Does this make for better educated children? Is Discovery Channel’s ‘Shark Week’ and that fourth grade science section illustrating a marine food chain all one ever needs to know about sharks? Shark attack headlines now and then reinforce how horrible they are. Field trip across the Pacific Ocean though, and learn that sharks aren’t so bad. The observational skills of a ten year old, our son Niall, deduced that reefs with no sharks had few fish or little variety of fish.

Reefs with at least a few sharks looked healthier with many more fish. It turns out that taking the big predator out of the food chain didn’t make it better for meek creatures at all! So, what happens to ocean ecosystems when tens of millions of sharks are killed each year for sport, for shark-fin soup, or as bycatch (sharks caught inadvertently while targeting other fish)? Fast forward a couple years to another field trip, and we’re at an uninhabited atoll in Papua New Guinea. A sailing canoe arrived with four Papuan fishermen aboard. The three brothers and their father stop here to rest between trips out collecting shark fins. Shark finning! It’s terribly cruel and throws off the food chain. With our education and “aha!” awareness of marine ecosystems, we judged the fishermen. Subtly, cleverly we wanted to lead them to awareness, and perhaps a new profession. Or, so we thought. “Maybe it would be better to keep the entire shark to feed your village,” I suggested. Patiently, they explained that removing the fin makes the shark angry, and getting an angry shark into a small sailing canoe is a bad idea. They explained the many dangers and told of fishermen lost. Aha! “So why risk you lives for shark finning?” I asked triumphantly. Again, they were patient and explained shark finning and copra are the only sources to get cash currency in their mostly barter-based economy. Copra is dried coconut meat. The market price for copra is so low that it costs more to get to market then they can sell it for. Bartering does get Papuan islanders by for many necessities of life, but not for education. No cash, no education – it’s not much of a choice. I was thankful for their patience with my stupidity. We left there in debt for the life lessons we sailed away with. Niall, now 17, is a pacifisht (his word to state that he will not eat seafood of any kind). Empathetic to oceanic problems and back in the USA where respectful discourse is about as common as rich Papuans, we’ve had a summer full of field trips beginning


with Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute and Marine Biological Labs. Then we touched history, touring USS Constitution (‘Old Ironsides’) in Boston, the Mystic Seaport Museum, and the Museum of Natural History in NYC. In the coming months, we’ll get to historic sites in and around the Chesapeake Bay area, including a trip that will bring Totem up the Potomac River to tour the Capitol building and the White House (thanks to Senator Cantwell’s office). I think back on the number of times people said that boat-schooling our children would ruin their education. A BOAT! You teach on… A BOAT? Education on Totem does have limitations: just two teachers, no organized team sports, and no large group of smart phone wielding peers to encourage impossibly fast thumbtyping. Despite these shortcomings, field tripping to college campuses this summer turned up administrators receptive to our pacifisht son’s boatschool education. We are grateful and proud. Of course, there is no single best way to educate. There are key ingredients, such as experiencing

CRUISING SPINNAKER… Designed specifically for light air performance.

The Cruising Spinnaker is a very useful addition to the inventory of the average cruising yacht. It's easy to use requiring no pole or separate halyard and is surprisingly affordable. A launching and dousing sock is optional but recommended.

Galley Essentials with Amanda A relaxing lunch in Valletta Last October saw John and I leaving Mahina Tiare in Sweden for a winter refit of new teak decks and engine. We’d thought of a tour of the countryside but as winter was fast approaching this did not seem an overly enticing event. It was then that our friends Vi c k y a n d R o l a n d contacted us saying that they’d finished their summer Med sailing and that they were now back in Valletta, Malta with a few weeks to spare before hauling out for the season. ‘Aha,’ thought John, ‘why not go visit and check out the yachting scene before we head back to the U.S.?’ We landed in Malta in a torrential tropical downpour complete with lightning. We thankfully enjoyed a hotel for the evening before joining Vicky and Roland aboard their boat Bella Luna. They’d planned a day of sightseeing in the old town of Valletta and thankfully the weather cleared to sunny blue skies. Valletta, Malta’s capital is a World Heritage site of fascinating Baroque architecture that’s fun to explore. Bastion walls, moats, forts, cathedrals and dense clusters of limestone building with timber balconies abound. All thanks to the Knights of St. John, who in the 16th century built the sizable fortified city as a refuge to care for injured soldiers and pilgrims during the Crusades. An extensive underground tunnel network ran below 36

cafés, wine bars and restaurants and we chose a lovely Sicilian themed soul food café for a rejuvenating lunch.

Add water to cover and simmer 20 minutes stirring occasionally. Add pasta and cook another 20 minutes. Season to taste. Serves 4. In the evening, we headed out to Takris, a rustic restaurant and bistro for a taste of local fare based on the traditional peasant food. The marriage of tastes of Maltese cuisine is the result of a long relationship between the Islanders and the many conquerors who occupied the Maltese Islands over the centuries. As the islands are hot, dry, and small, they can’t sustain large herds of cattle. So, any meat that was to be had went to the nobles. The villages lived on fish until the ban on hunting rabbits was lifted and rabbit became everyman’s feast. Fenk is the local word for rabbit and by attaching the suffix -ata people not only refer to the food eaten, but the conversations had and wine drunk, therefore a fenkata encompasses all activities that take place during a certain event or time. John chose fish, Roland bragioli (beef with olive) while Vicki and I had rabbit in red wine served with roasted vegetables. Rabbit in Red Wine 1 Rabbit - cut into small pieces 2 tablespoons olive oil 1 red onion - diced 6 garlic cloves - chopped 6 bay leaves 2 cups of dark red wine 2 tablespoons of tomato paste ½ cup of peas Add olive oil to pan and heat until olive oil is very hot. Add rabbit and braise until golden brown. Add red onions and garlic; sauté until translucent. Add bay leaves, red wine, tomato paste and peas. Bring to a boil, then cover and simmer for an hour until liquid is reduced by half. Remove bay leaves before serving. We sailed to the neighboring Island of Gozo the next day, where we enjoyed the spectacular tranquil anchorage and clear waters or Dweja Bay. Time ashore was spent hiking and renting bicycles to explore the exotic landscape and the

town of Victoria and the Cittadella, which has been the center of activity of the island since possibly Neolithic times. The tiny island of Comino was not to be missed on our return to Malta and we delighted in this small paradise with clear water and sandy beaches. Our last few days on Malta were really interesting as we further explored inland. A highlight was an evening visit to the ancient walled city of Mdina with its extraordinary mix of medieval and baroque architecture. Lamp lit at night, it’s referred to as “the silent city.” An Arabic restaurant was Vickie’s choice and we weren’t disappointed with its hearty fare and small delights like the following. Stuffed Olives large pitted olives soft part of bread slices anchovies capers parsley salt and pepper olive oil Mash together bread, anchovies, caper and parsley. Season to taste. Add

olive oil to make the mix softer. Fill olives with mix. Almond Cookies 1 cup blanched almonds - whole or slivered ⅓ cup sugar pinch salt 1 egg white ¼ teaspoon almond extract 14 whole almonds Preheat oven to 350°F. In a food processor combine almonds, sugar and salt. Process until very finely ground. Add egg white and almond extract and pulse until the dough comes together. Roll the dough into 14 evenly sized balls, and place on a parchment lined cookie sheet. Press one almond into the center of each cookie, pressing down slightly. Bake for 10 minutes or until just starting to show a hint of gold. Let cookies cool on the pan, then transfer to an airtight container.

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.

Turning the Corner And Finding... Friends?! By Becca Guillote

Leaving Seattle on an open-ended voyage, it was comforting to start in waters we knew well. We had traveled the inside passage several times – both when racing Kotuku and cruising on Halcyon. This made our exit from Seattle less daunting, and allowed leniency in the completion of some boat projects necessary before we went offshore. But, it also meant the first few weeks felt like pretending. We tried to anchor in places we had not been before, but the waters were still familiar

and it was easy to imagine we would be turning back and heading to Seattle any day. Other boaters we met always had questions about where we were going, what we were doing, and why we were still moving north. The more times I told our story and answered the bank of questions always posed, the more detached I felt, like I was describing someone else’s plans. That changed as we headed out Goletas channel towards Cape Scott

“Halcyon,” a Valiant 40, responded beautifully to the rolling ocean swell. These were waters she was born to love. 38

and the Pacific Ocean. While we had also been in these waters (during the 2011 Van Isle race), it felt different this time. We were turning a corner: a physical corner, of course, pointing the bow south for the first time. But, this was also a metaphorical corner. So far, our adventure had kept us in relatively safe and comfortable waters (despite our near-broach in Johnstone Strait). We were really never more than a day’s journey from resources, assistance, and cell phone reception. The west coast of Vancouver Island, on the other hand, is a rugged, unforgiving coastline dotted irregularly with signs of human existence. As the ocean swells began to roll under the hull, Halcyon responded with a comfortable motion, lured west into the waters she was born to love. We felt our anticipation rise with each swell, as if, in these first few hours, we would establish our relationship with the Pacific Ocean. We were eager to present ourselves as compatible and accepting of both her affection and her anger. But coupled with our eagerness was an ache that was hard to ignore. Past Desolation Sound, the inside passage had been lonely. The season was dwindling and there was rarely another boat in any anchorage. The pleasure boats we did see were obviously on their way home, their


sights set on king beds and unlimited hot water. We are social creatures, refilling the coffers of our energy stores through shared experiences and the exchange of ideas with others. Knowing the short term cruisers were snug in their beds and the majority of voyagers had already turned south from Neah Bay, we prepared ourselves for deserted anchorages and quiet evenings as we slid down the west coast of the island. After a 10-hour day motoring across the Nawhiti Bar, motor-sailing around Cape Scott, and finally sailing south with the wind behind us, we pulled into Sea Otter Cove for the night. As we rounded the bend and waved to our welcoming committee of sea otters, an unnaturally straight leafless tree came into view. Not a tree... a mast! I may have done a dance on the bow. This boat was not just out for the weekend, either. The signs were all there: jerry jugs tied to the rail, wind-vane mounted, dinghy hauled on the cabintop; we had found fellow voyagers. We’ve all experienced that uncomfortable moment when your dentist walks up in the coffee shop wearing jeans and the sighting is so out of context you can’t recall his name or even how you know him. I was so startled to find another boat in the cove

The west coast of Vancouver Island is a rugged, unforgiving coastline. it never occurred to me I might also know the travelers she carried. Embarrassingly, it was the next morning before the dots forced themselves to connect. In the morning drizzle, we motored over to the two hooded figures rowing our way to say hello when we realized we had stumbled upon Ardea, the Beneteau Idylle 13.5 carrying Jon and Michele

Henderson, pillars in the Seattle sailing community and fellow racers from long ago. The dots joined to reveal the concealed image and I instantly recalled knowing Ardea was starting her voyage this year with a plan to cruise north and then down the outside of the island before heading for warmer waters. The reunion then felt intended, as if we were predestined to meet up in a deserted cove 400 miles from Seattle. That day, we had a beautiful spinnaker run under sunny skies with 15 knots of breeze over our stern. Dolphins surfed our bow wake and a humpback breached half a dozen times in the distance. We could see Ardea’s bright blue spinnaker all day, a sight that kept us energized and animated. That night, we shared an anchorage, along with fishing tips, life stories, and a delicious dinner. While our respective schedules have us on slightly different timetables this week, it is comforting to know there are like-minded sailors nearby sharing this experience. I am confident we will find ourselves sharing many more anchorages, stories and delicious dinners down the coast. Follow Becca and John’s journey at http://halcyonwandering.com.

here are a lot of performance cruisers available these days. Many of them are very good boats. They all sail pretty well, afford a ton of space below, and have clean and modern lines. I believe that the Dehler 38 is one of the good ones. The hull is a Judel/Vrolijk design, with daily input by son of the founder, Karl Dehler. Dehler has a reputation for building fast and high quality cruiser-racers (Dehler Yachts is now part of the Hanse Group). Here’s the thing, though: I did not sail the Dehler 38. I sailed the Dehler 38C. And I loved the Dehler 38C, and believe it offers a unique sailing experience among the crowded performance cruiser category. The “C” in the model’s name stands for “Competition,” but don’t let that scare you off, cruisers! The hull is the same as the any of the Dehler 38 models, offering a large and elegant interior. The 38C has a little bit more sailing horsepower than the base model, and it shined on Puget Sound when we sailed it a few weeks ago, courtesy of JK3 Yachts and the new owners of the boat, Tom and Shelley Raschko. The carbon rig is 18” inches taller than the base model’s aluminum mast. Both underwater foils are of a more high-performance shape on the Competition model, and the keel is eight inches deeper. I’ve long advocated that boats with a performance pedigree make for ideal craft when cruising the Pacific Northwest, and after sailing it, I found that the 38C has the extra oomph to sail beautifully in our summertime light air. When we left Shilshole, we didn’t have more than four or five knots of northerly breeze. Nonetheless, we set the main, unrolled the stock 100% jib, and got to talking. In no time, the boat had ghosted us halfway to Edmonds.

in light conditions. The breeze built to a good seven knots by the time we got near the Edmonds/ Kingston ferry line. With that extra pressure, the boat was pushing speeds near six knots to weather. We rigged up the furling code zero. On the 38C as it comes from the factory, the code zero tacks onto a stainless steel ring on the anchor roller. This worked fine for downwind sailing and reaching, but I was hesitant to crank on the halyard tension enough to get a more rigid luff necessary for upwind sailing with that tack point. I’d say the boat is an excellent candidate for an aftermarket sprit of some kind (potentially with a bob stay) if a person had a desire to get all the versatility and performance out of that code zero. Dehler offers a sprit as an option the 38C as well. However, for normal cruising purposes, the anchor roller tack point would suit perfectly for this sail or a cruising spinnaker. The boat felt marvelous with the bigger sail. Reaching with the code zero, the 38C found a lovely heeling angle (I’d guess 12°) and seemed to stay there. The boat speed climbed to within a knot of true wind speed, approaching seven knots. We took turns driving from one of the two very sexy, black GRP (Glass Reinforced Plastic) helms. I’d describe the sailing experience with that sail plan and those conditions as powered-up but easily controlled. The deep, high aspect rudder felt responsive and forgiving. Its elliptical shape will deliver better and better handling as the breeze and seas build and the speeds increase. Tom and Shelley will be sailing this boat mostly double-handed, and the boat will treat them well with that crew arrangement. The loads in the sails are not intimidating. Docking, motoring, and sailing, the boat will be easily

The main has a full and attractive shape with ample roach. To my eye, when we trimmed it correctly, it was reminiscent of the shape of the Farr 30 main. Considering the Farr 30 is a Grand Prix racer and points nearly straight upwind, that’s high praise. The jib, in those conditions, was simply the wrong sail. The light wind and small jib also exposed what, in my mind, is perhaps the only questionable design choice: the jib lead tracks are set pretty far outboard, making the sheeting angle too wide to match that pretty mainsail. An in-hauler on the jib sheets would have brought us closer, and the boat does come with rigging for just that. A genoa would been even better, or the code zero, which I’ll get to in a moment. In much more breeze or on a not-quite-so close-hauled course, I don’t think I would have even noticed the sheeting angle. While we were goofing around with jib lead position and trying to rig the in-haulers, the helm was so balanced that the boat basically sailed itself and I was again astounded by the distance we had covered. Regardless of sheeting angle, the Dehler 38C made quick work of those miles and is downright slippery October 2016

handled by a couple or a family. Tom and Shelley may put a couple of steps on the mast so Shelley can more easily reach the head of the mainsail to attach a halyard, but that’s the only thing that gave the boat much of a “big boat” feel. Well, maybe that and the electric winch on the starboard cabin-top. While easily handled shorthanded, the space on the boat, both on deck and below, would match any impressive performance cruiser. Its efficiently laid out cockpit will accommodate a race crew. The cockpit table folds down to be narrow and acts as a useful handhold underway. The table, admittedly, would be a new feature on most race boats. The aft end of the cockpit table also doubles as the platform for the navigation display. There is a traveler bar set into the cockpit sole just ahead of the dual helm stations. The traveler is an absolute must from a sail-trim perspective for a performance boat. I found it unobtrusive with the seating arrangement, and it should deliver effective sail trim while leaving most of the cockpit seating unaffected. The cockpit could seat eight while sailing. When you’re at anchor, the traveler and main sheet can be stowed in front of one of the helm stations, leaving a spacious and direct walkway from the companionway to the fold-down swim step. Stepping down the companionway of the Dehler 38C, you may suddenly forget you were just zipping around on a performance-focused sailboat, because the interior has a pure modern cruiser feel. The starboard galley

The interior pairs impressive fit and finish with clever design attributes like a shared single door between the owner’s berth and the head, and outward-opening hatches on the salon sides that allow for ventilation if it’s raining, and no drips when opened!

and navigation table to port aren’t enormous, but that leaves generous seating around the main salon. I know there are different packages available for the interior, and Tom and Shelley nailed it. From the traditional teak and holly flooring, to the cream-colored leatherette upholstery, it was classy, light, and functional. Theirs is the three cabin model - they will have their kids and eventually their grandkids joining them for sailing adventures. There is only one head, but Tom and Shelley showed their bluewater savvy when they defended the design choice of a single head, saying “This way, you only have to fix one head, and it’s fewer holes in the boat.” Tom pointed out a few other things about the interior, two positive and one negative, that I’m not sure I would have noticed on a typical test sail. First, he noted that the boat lacks a really good place to hang wet foul weather gear. The shower will suffice, but they’ll have to hang their own hooks. On the positive side, Tom happily showed me that the side-windows are outward opening allowing for ventilation even in the rain, and noted plentiful hand holds and rails throughout the cabin. Tom and Shelley We made 5.5 knots in 7 knots of breeze upwind under jib and main, and when we rigged up the code zero and reached off, were aboard for our test sail, and I owe them we could do 6.5 knots in that same breeze. www.48North.com

a debt of gratitude for several reasons, not least of which is that they delayed their departure for their first trip to the San Juans to accommodate my interest in sailing their boat. Aside from their generosity, I found it compelling to sail with new owners - an opportunity to understand why they chose this boat among the myriad options that exist. Tom and Shelley are informed buyers, they cruised for three years from Seattle to the Western Pacific on their modified CT-38, and have both been involved in a variety of deliveries. That said, they sold their last boat thirty years ago, so it has been a while since they last chose a boat. Tom wanted a boat that “really sailed.” He’s the kind of guy who, in the three years they cruised, never stopped tweaking sails for speed (many cruisers lose that obsession as time goes by on a voyage). Their stout bluewater boat provided them safe passage and was fast for a cruising design of that era, but with the Dehler 38C, Tom has a boat that can do that and will respond well to his sail tweaks. Tom also said, “I want to go fast, principally, because it is safer. And, if we never go offshore again, I’ll still be fascinated by the boat.” So, I’m ready to say it, this is a true dual purpose yacht, and there aren’t a lot of those anymore. The Dehler 38C boat could be a dedicated racer or a dedicated cruiser, and I believe it would excel in either pursuit, or both. Special thanks to JK3 Yachts and to Tom and Shelley Raschko for getting me out sailing on the Dehler 38C. 41

This September, the Pacific Northwest stepped onto 54 boats in support of breast cancer research and prevention. To date, the efforts of The Pink Boat Regatta have resulted in over $220,000 in donations to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation with a goal for 2016 to write a check for another $100,000. For every $100 raised, that boat receives an extra “buoy” on race day during the 3-hour timed buoy race. Not only does the race take on a competitive and enthusiastic spirit

Lake Union for the first time, giving the city a first-hand view of just what amazing lengths these sailors go to. Lengths like those that the all-female team, Puff, went to by surpassing a $10,000 fundraising goal. Sponsored by Seattle Sailing Club, who also joined as an official event sponsor with True Brands and Spinnaker Bay Brewing, the ladies of Puff raised an unprecedented $11,514 towards the grand total, which stands at over $78,000 between Bellingham and Seattle. Puff went home as the overall w i n n e r, i n c l u d i n g t h e w o m e n skipper award, with Jumpin Jack biting at their heels for a second place finish two years running, and Tantivy not far behind, a top three finish representing over $24,000. Domino Beauty Boutique’ Smola reinvented the creative fundraising wheel once again with beer gardens, prizes, and even a free haircut session at Gas Works Park during the regatta itself. Lake Union Charters and Adventures brought spectators, including volunteers and onlookers as well as current patients of SCCA, out on the lake for a close up view of the action.

My favorite moment is always the one in which I turn a corner to find pink boats waiting for the race to begin, decked out and dressed up, decorated and determined. Five years ago we knew this race held promise, but it’s every participant, year after year keeping that promise alive and well.

A word from TEAM PUFF Thanks to the generous contributions of 109 supporters, the 10 women of Seattle Sailing Club’s Team Puff raised $11,514.25 in this year ’s Seattle Pink Boat Regatta. According to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, that’s funding for 230 hours of research to prevent and cure. Team Puff swept 1st place in the “DD Cup” division, 1st place woman skipper, and 1st place overall. Our team had a wide range of sailing and racing experience; some of the women had only learned to sail a few weeks before joining our crew! I was amazed by how quickly the new crew members picked up the skills! Team Puff has fun. Always. So when we found ourselves in a hole, main trimmer, Natalie, turned on her special “Pink Puff Mix” on the boom box and we danced, sang, and laughed. Chocolate appeared. So did cold drinks. Waves and cheers were exchanged with the Team Puff Fan Club on the shore of Gasworks Park. Team Puff sends a big thank you to Bob Ross and Seattle Sailing Club as well as the amazing Ashley Bell and the Pink Boat Regatta team! — Margaret Pommert, Team Puff

Bellingham Yacht Club

P.I.T.C.H.

Top 10 Reasons I loved the P.i.t.c.h. Regatta this year, and I bet you would too: 10. You are never going to be thirsty at PITCH, or hungry for that matter. If you deliver the boat on Friday, they look off the yacht club deck with binoculars and when you come into sight, they will motor out and meet you with cold beer on the bay! My boat was at the dock all week and they filled my cooler with cold micro-brew for my arrival, I kid you not. Later, there was the free keg of beer and hamburgers. 9. It’s in Bellingham, a college town. In my case, it’s MY college town. Go Vikings! In any case, the non-sailors in your crowd can hear live music, visit museums, a variety of every different kind of amazing local food, shop, get a tattoo, or check out the breweries, bike trails, mountains, lakes, and parks. 8. Happy Valley. In Bellingham, there is no secret about where to go on the first beat. Sail to the Happy Valley breeze! Gotta love the name and it’s a foolproof navigation plan, even if you foolishly took advantage of #10 and your brain isn’t ready for racing in the morning. 7. The Race Committee. They knocked off a lot of races with 46

square lines and nice distances and re-adjusted for shifting afternoon breeze in short order, all with a smile. The weather. Granted, this can’t be changed, but sun and wind in September is a great thing. (Sunshine wasn’t even in the forecast.) There were the ugly years of PITCH awhile back, with no wind or the year with too much wind. Those years are behind us! Free moorage, right in front of the yacht club! PITCH is the only regatta that I know of that provides free moorage. In my case, there was free moorage for an entire week! Sam, the stray seagull. We had a lot of fun with the friendly wildlife in the marina. Baby seagulls do not like coffee, but they do like rice crispy treats. And they don’t fly! Just in case you wondered. Lack of yardwork. There was not a lawn mower or hedge trimmer in sight. Nobody really cares what your yard looks like. Just go have a fun weekend on the boat. PITCH-ers. If you know me very well, you know that I’m not typically super excited about a third place finish for the weekend. We were excited that the best October 2016

www.48North.com

trophies went to third place, beautiful glass pitchers! 1. Come for the wind, Stay for the party! It’s a phrase that never gets old. We did both, and had a wonderful time! Thanks, BYC! In PHRF Division 1, Charlie Macauley and the Absolutely crew ran away with the weekend, first in class and overall. Next in line was Dave Steffen’s Vitesse, with son Brock newly returned to the foredeck. The awesome third place trophy went to Stuart Burnell and his crew of Swedish Fish loving sailors on Tantivy. In the Etchells One-Design fleet, first went to Paul Taylor, and second to Erik Yaremko of the Flying Circus fame. Also on the podium was the youth sailing crew led by Scott Wilson, followed by everyone’s favorite ski cabin buddy, Jonathon Knowles, and his son Jack. In PHRF Division 3, Chris White sailed a fantastic regatta on his Martin 242, Crazy I’s. Someone’s gotta beat that guy! There was close scoring, if not race course vicinity, between second place with Richard Veach’s Honker and the Schwenks on Wild Rumpus. Noteworthy sportsmanship was shown by Betsy Wareham and the Martin 242 Purple Martin when she was close in points but sailed one of her crew to the dock on Sunday afternoon, and came back out to race the last race even though the score didn’t count. For those who wonder about the regatta name, you must be young! PITCH came about in the glory days of the IOR rating system. Boats were given ratings based on weight, and crazy measurement system in which you wanted a boat that was super wide in the middle and skinny at both ends. Picture any boat built by San Juan, such as the popular SJ24. Anyhow, PITCH was the Pacific International Ton Championship. “One-Tonners” were a popular class at the time, and so the regatta was created. IOR may have died, but PITCH lives on! Every Labor Day weekend. See ya there next year! story and photo by Stephanie Schwenk results at www.byc.org and on page 48.

nother fantastic Dale Jepsen One Design Regatta is in the hopper, and, as always, it was fantastic. The largest fleet of 5O5s on the West Coast assembled, along with a healthy fleet of Lasers, Laser Radials, Flying Juniors and Tasars to do battle on Bellingham Bay. The forecast for Saturday was 15 to 25 knots southerlies. This had fleets salivating for some flat sails and epic surfing. It quickly became apparent that 15 to 25 was actually 35 to 40 out of the east, with puffs clocking upwards of 45. The bay had upside down boats galore. Safety boats moved into action, fishing out most of the Junior Fleet. This was followed by some heroics, as Miles Johannsen and Carlos Abisambra jumped on empty boat after boat, saving them from the rocky teeth of West Bellingham Bay, and certain destruction. The Race Committee postponed, and sailors waited on shore until it became apparent that it wasn’t to be for Saturday. So, we did what we do in Bellingham. We started the party early, drank from the keg, ate mouth

watering pork stew and had a karaoke party which will go down in history as most legendary. A bit worse for the wear, and most likely with some aspirin on board, sailors rigged up Sunday for what was shaping up to be very nice conditions. The range for the day was between 8 and 12 knots from the south. The race committee, with three minute starts and a separate start/ finish line, were able to bang off six races pretty much non stop. It was like combining two days into one. Bragging rights for the overall go to Paul Von Grey and Kerry Poe, who won the trophy in Paul’s 5O5 Red Stripey. As usual, in the Tasar fleet,

D ale J epsen O ne D esign R egatta it was a battle between the Boscolos and Mike Karas/ Molly Jackson. Mike Karas won the day. The Laser fleet had a battle of international proportions, as Carlos Abisambra from Seattle tried his best to keep up with Royal Vancouver Yacht Club up-and-comer, Alexander Shepard, as well as the Phenom from Jericho Beach, Jorge Yanoz. Jorge took the prize. The Laser Radial T r o p h y was taken by Benjie McMaster from RVYC. Kudos to Al Clark for his seemingly e n d l e s s ability to churn out some fine sailors year after year.

Club’s FJ sailors, Cedric Keneipp and Peyton Nienaber, came home with first place in a close batte with Emma Burgess and Lera Anders. Smiles all around were the norm at the end of the event. Sponsorship from Samson Rope, West Marine, and The Port of Bellingham kept folks happy, as did the outstanding hospitality from the volunteers on shore and on the water. The Race Committee did an epic job keeping boaters safe on Saturday, and keeping things efficient on Sunday. I’m already planning for next year. Mark your calendars now. We’ll look forward to hosting September 9th and 10th.

S i n g l e -H a n d e d R a c e Twenty-five sailors signed up for the annual Sloop Tavern Yacht Club Single-Handed Race on August 27, making this the largest single handed event in the Pacific Northwest in the last 20 years! The single-handed race is another chase in which boats begin at individual start times to theoretically finish together, much like Race to the Straits and Down the Sound races. It was a perfect day with sun and wind, and possibly a little more wind than some single-handed racers wanted with 14-16 knots around most of the course with 18 knots recorded at the leeward mark at Spring Beach. The race committee, with PRO Mike Beste and the RC boat provided by volunteer Charlie O’Hern on Tangent, chose the long course to Spring Beach which, with a mostly east-southeastlery wind, made for a mostly reaching course. The fleet started north toward West Point in the middle of a 10’ flood tide. Boats that took a tack east before the lighthouse came close to laying the mark and did better than those that those on the outside. Most boats only gybed once on the run to Spring Beach, and tacked only two or three times on the run back to the finish line at the Shilshole breakwater. There were some tough battles in classes approaching the finish line thanks to the staggered start. First to finish, and first overall, was a close battle between Tom Ward’s FT10 sport boat Anarchy (Class 3) and Joe Bozick’s heavy Sweden 36 Breeze (Class 2). Muscling the Sweden’s huge genoa through the last tack cost Joe the overall win by 12 seconds. Third overall went to the venerable T-Bird Selchie (Class 1) skippered by Kwadwo Copeland. by Dan Randolph results at: www.styc.org or on this page

he TransPuget Benefit Race was held Saturday, September 17th, on Shilshole Bay. Seventeen boats were registered to compete in the “all for charity” Shilshole Bay Yacht Club - sponsored TransPuget Benefit Race. Same as last year, 100% of all the race fees and donations go to support the Footloose Sailing Association, an organization that supports sailing for people with disabilities. The competitors were divided into three classes and the boats ranged from a 26’ J/80, named Jolly Green to a 48’ J/145, named Jedi. The wind blew at a steady 25 knots with gusts well over 30 most of the day. The race committee chose a course starting at Shilshole, to a windward “mark” of Blakely Rock, north to Meadow Point, and finish. After the race we met at Shilshole Bay Marina for the trophy presentation, camaraderie, and raffling off of the many gifts. There was a haulout awarded for first place in each class, and the other gifts were “drawn from the hat” until all the donations had been distributed.

Thunderbird Regional Championships:

Hot Competition in a Northwest Classic

T

he Thunderbird was designed in 1958 to help sell plywood for the Douglas Fir Plywood Association. Tom Sias, a Tacoma sailor who worked for the organization, suggested marketing marine-grade plywood to sailors with dreams of building a boat. He convinced his colleagues to hold a design competition to create a family-friendly plywood boat that a novice could build. The Association circulated specifications to naval architects around the country that called for “a racing and cruising boat …to sleep four…be capable of being built by reasonably skilled amateurs…be powered by an outboard auxiliary…and out-perform other sailboats.” Designer, Ben Seaborn, took on the challenge along with Gig Harbor boatbuilder, Ed Hoppen, and a fleet was born. Since then hundreds have been built in backyards around the country. In 1971, John Booth adapted the boat to take advantage of fiberglass construction, which spawned fleets around the world. The design has continued to evolve to ensure the fleet stays competitive and dynamic. T-birds, as they are called, perform well in handicap racing, but where the racing is most exciting is when they race One-Design. On Labor Day weekend, 17 T-birds from the region gathered to test their sailing prowess against fellow birders. Grant Ehrlich flew from Connecticut to take part aboard Flair, the boat his father has owned for nearly 50 years. On the Friday afternoon before the 50

regatta, Fred Ehrlich unloaded gear from a three-week cruise of the islands and prepared her for competition while others motored from Leschi, Gig Harbor, Everett, and Tacoma. Ken Lane and crew gathered boat parts and plunked Raptor in the water and raised the mast less than fifteen hours before the race start. The two-day regatta featured ideal racing. Despite a grim forecast of 1-2 knots and cloudy skies, PRO Eric Rimkus, his wife Kimberly, and Dave Burrows ran seven perfect races, all under blue skies and the right amount of breeze. The race committee kept the mark-set boat (with Guy Hupy and Tulip Morrow aboard) busy to ensure square start lines, competitive legs, and back-to-back starts with just enough time to catch one’s breath. A combination of subtle currents and

wind shifts made this a challenge and created a complex race course that kept everyone guessing. While a few boats were often near the top, because the class has so many skilled and experienced crews, no single boat dominated. Swan (Gary Davis), Predator (Craig Burnell), and Skylark (Michael Karas) all got bullets. Mistakes were costly and battles were tight for each place on the scoreboard. Sunday’s racing ended with Predator winning the native-carved regional trophy. Owner Craig Burnell had help from fellow T-bird owner Pam Schwartz (Hussy II), Catherine Hovell, and Serge Gart to sail Predator to victory. On Raptor, Ken Lane's crew, Wendy Hinman, Garth Wilcox and Randy Mather, proved that consistency even without a first place finish can earn top honors. Michael Karas, fresh from taking second place on R2AK contender Jungle Kitty, helped sail his father's boat Skylark into third place in this action-packed regatta. The Thunderbird fleet eagerly anticipates tight competition at the 2017 Internationals next Labor Day in Port Townsend. by Wendy Hinman and Grant Ehrlich results at thunderbirdsailing.org and on page 48.

swiftsure yachts The logbook for October 2016 When you see Camdeboo, you know she’s built to go far and wide. She is a proven blue water machine. With her

Camdeboo 1990 Lavranos 50 smooth, round bilges, you can’t tell at first glance that she is built of steel, though her stainless capped toe rail gives it away. There is so much to like about this boat. She has a long seagoing cockpit. Her interior is finished $194,500

in beautiful teak with a mahogany cabin sole. With three enclosed cabins, she easily sleeps eight people. Headroom is 6 feet, 9 inches in the salon! She has one of the nicest galleys you will find. There is massive storage and plenty of tankage. Camdeboo was purchased by her current owners in San Diego. After a refit in Victoria, British Columbia, they set sail with two families (seven people total) to live their dream of sailing the South Pacific. According to her owners, “Camdeboo is an ideal boat for family and multi-family offshore cruising; she is especially well set up for trade wind sailing. We found her to be safe, seaworthy and comfortable; and she was fast – we had a number of 200 nm days.” Angelo Lavranos is well known for designing capable boats with exquisite lines. Camdeboo fits this description well. Priced appropriately, Camdeboo is well worth a look. – brad baker, swiftsure yachts
