The Opportunity Cost Conundrum Before I got into all of these fun sailing shenanigans, I went to college and studied music and economics. I was fascinated by and passionate about and frustrated with each pursuit, in very different ways. I loved the logical side of economics, which proved problematic when I started thinking reason was more important than preparation. It actually went fairly well until I got into some higher level courses... it turns out calculus skills trumped logic. A true logician might have seen that coming! The economic principle that has, perhaps, the most staying power in my mind is that of Opportunity Cost. In conversations about certain things in sailing, Opportunity cost applies more than you might think. Before we go further, let’s clarify what it means. The Economist’s Glossary of Terms explains it as follows: OPPORTUNITY COST: The true cost of something is what you give up to get it. This includes not only the money spent in buying (or doing) the something, but also the economic benefits (UTILITY) that you did without because you bought (or did) that particular something and thus can no longer buy (or do) something else. For example, the opportunity cost of choosing to train as a lawyer is not merely the tuition fees, PRICE of books, and so on, but also the fact that you are no longer able to spend your time holding down a salaried job or developing your skills as a footballer. I’m humbled by how frequently I’m asked for my opinion on what’s happening in sailing. I reference opportunity cost most often when discussing participation, usually in conversation with a passionate person from the sailing establishment: a yacht club volunteer, a race organizer, or someone making their living in the industry. These folks tend to be lifers who already understand why it’s so great to be off-the-deep-end obsessed with boats. We are so very connected now, and that connectivity opens a world of possibilities. But, it also forces us to consider the opportunity cost of every choice, as we are bombarded with information about what everybody else is doing. It doesn’t matter whether I’ve had a great day on the water or a tough one, whether I was bored or thrilled or cold or comfy - when I get back on land and check my phone, I am guaranteed to discover that someone I care about was also doing something that looked amazing. I love sailing and I never regret it, but I am still susceptible to FOMO (fear of missing out). My description of opportunity cost and its impact on sailing seldom offers consolation to someone trying to understand why attendance at their regatta is down, or why they have difficulty attracting new members to their yacht club. However, I’m confident that challenges of attendance are not because people aren’t interested in sailing. All evidence I have indicates people still want to sail. It’s anecdotal, but in my time working for a membership oriented sailing program, we more than doubled membership during the worst years of the recession, helping create new sailors young and old. When they try it, people generally want to sail more and more. But, it’s a lot harder than it was twenty years ago for a person to say, “I’m a sailor, that’s the main thing I am, and that’s how I’m going to spend all my free time and disposable income,” at least in part because of all the other options we are now aware of. In my experience, outlets that reduce the sense of opportunity cost - boat shares and clubs, partnership based ownership, and inclusive community sailing operations - have an initial leg up, but any sailing provider could apply the principle. Though I don’t have a perfect vision for it, the ways that we help people enjoy sailing may have to adapt to ensure a lower opportunity cost. I actually think it’s a pretty good question to ask in the interest of keeping those who are already pysched about sailing on the water and invested in it. Ultimately, because I know people want to sail, it’s just a matter of how creative we enthusiastic lifers are willing to be to change with the times. The opportunity cost of ignoring it is a major reduction in utility and fun! I’ll see you at the Boat Show! Joe Cline, Editor, 48° North

Hello from California and Seattle to Walla Walla?
Engineered to be Serviced Easily!
Dear 48° North, We enjoy your publication so much. We pick it up at West Marine in Redding, California. We’ve spent 30 years taking our Balboa 26 to Seattle and the San Juans. We’ve taken over 200 trophies at many regattas in California and Oregon over the years with our boat, Lusty, and have been members of Whiskeytown Sailing Club since it was formed. We’d like to purchase a subscription for John Morrison, who just bought a Cape Dory in Seattle and sailed it to Walla Walla.

Thank you so much, Joe, Curtis Ray and Mary Jane Proffitt Weaverville, CA Hi Curtis Ray and Mary Jane! I can’t thank you enough for your kind note, and for your support and enthusiasm of our sport and our little magazine. I’m reading this on one of those rare occasions when the Editor Emeritus, Richard Hazelton, is in the office, and I’ve passed along your story, as well as your thanks to him, too! Do I understand you correctly that John bought the Cape Dory in Seattle, sailed it down the coast to the Columbia River, and then made the passage all the way east on the Columbia to a port near Walla Walla? One of the Tri Cities, perhaps, was the final destination? If so, that’s pretty amazing. I’m not sure I’ve heard of anyone doing that. Sounds like a 48° North story to me. I’d love to learn more. Do other 48° North readers know of sailors who have done that trip? Even if it was just a road trip on a trailer, I bet it was a beautiful ride. Regardless, thanks for your kind words. I wish you and your family all the best in the coming year. www.48North.com

Hi Marilyn - Thanks for the heads up on that. That should be taken care of now and good to go! We aren’t sure what happened, but we’re always glad to know if something isn’t working the way it should be. One of the reasons we wanted to include your note is as a reminder that there are a lot of ways to read 48° North. Print is still our biggest format, but with the 2016 redesign of www.48north.com, there are even more options. As you do, readers can download PDF versions that do not require connectivity. We still utilize the tried and true flip-book online viewer as well. And, of course, we are publishing more and more of our magazine content as online articles to go with the online-only stories that can be found on our site.

Letters Request from the 48° North to Participate in Reader Survey: Dear 48° North Readers, We need your help! 48° North is able to come to you each month (for the awesome price of FREE!) thanks to the dedicated support of our advertisers, and in turn, your support of their businesses. We’re all connected and all invested in one another, and that’s just how we like it. Every few years, our advertisers want to know more about how fantastic you, our readers, are. I know, I know - everybody and their dog wants a survey these days. But, this demographic information is important to us and to them. Advertisers take a calculated risk advertising in print. Digital ad sales people can promise things print can’t guarantee. However, what we can promise them is that we have you - our audience of readers who appreciate our magazine, and are eager to pick it up and actually read it, over and over again. In this is a beauty (and challenge) for a free magazine in 2017. We aren’t storing our cookies with you when you pick up a magazine. If you want some cookies, I’d bake some for you though... oatmeal chocolate chip is my specialty. We don’t regularly troll or track you, and we want to keep it that way. We love that the sailing world has a tight-knit social scene, but also provides the ability, when you want it, to go out and get all sorts of lost and disconnected and private. So, in an effort to continue to bring you the best coverage of sailing stories from around the Pacific Northwest and beyond, we ask that you give a few minutes to participate in our 2017 Reader Survey. 48° North is a community, from our team at HQ in Ballard, to our readers all over the world; from our advertisers who make this all possible, to our writers to who are riding the waves and living the dream. Please help us continue to bring you those stories of fun and funny capers, reports from the races and rendezvous, and tales of the cruising lifestyle that are heartwarming, inspiring, and adventurous. Indeed, this is mostly a demographic survey, but this is also an opportunity for you to tell us how we’re doing. If you think I’ve driven the good ship 48° North into the rocks, the advertisement design has improved thanks to Savannah’s creativity, or whatever - we want to know. The survey helps us continue to bring you a publication that is not only free, but one that is filled with the kind of articles, information, and advertisements that matter to you. If you’re coming to the Seattle Boat Show, please stop by our booth (West 24) and say hello. If you’re willing to do a survey, you can fill it out right there. You can also complete a survey at www48north.com by following the link on the homepage to the online version. Fisheries Supply has generously partnered with us on this project, and we will be giving away two Hatteras Crewfit 40 Pro Inflatable Lifejackets (with an integral harness) to two lucky survey participants. Ok, the sales pitch is over. But, the 2017 fun is just beginning! We hope to see you at the Boat Shows and on the water.

Top 25 Sailboats of 2016

#1 Different Drummer Charles Hill CYC Seattle
Fisheries Supply again joins 48° North in recognizing the high level of racing here in the Pacific Northwest. Tracking the racing results of selected series from Olympia, Washington to Vancouver, B.C., our Top 25 rewards not just the occasional bullet, but participation and consistent, top-notch sailing. This year, Charles Hill‘s Wauquiez Centurion 40, Different Drummer, took our coveted #1 spot on the Top 25 list. Congratulations to Charles and his crew! The following sailing events were scored: South Sound Sailing Society Southern Sound Series, Corinthian YC Center Sound Series, Sloop Tavern YC Blakely Rock Benefit Race, Corinthian YC Pacific Northwest One Design (P.O.D.), Seattle YC Tri-Island Series, Corinthian YC Puget Sound Sailing Regatta, West Vancouver YC Southern Straits Classic, Royal Victoria YC Swiftsure International Yacht Race, Whidbey Island Race Week, Bellingham YC PITCH Regatta, Orcas Island YC/Friday Harbor Sailing Club Round the County Race, and Corinthian YC Puget Sound Sailing Championship. With a mix of distance and multi-race regattas, these twelve races make for a good representation of Northwest racing. Check the 2017 Seattle Area Racing Calendar 20
inserted within this issue or at your yacht club for upcoming races. Boats were scored on a percentage basis (depending on the size of the class), with an average of your best five of the listed events. Event scores were from 0% (did not finish) to 100% (first in class), where the event score = (finishers – position + 1) / finishers. Ties were broken by incrementally adding more events, or left to stand if necessary. Unlike previous years, there was no minimum number of races required to qualify. If a boat completed fewer than five races, they were scored the same “as did not finish.” Our goal is to celebrate participation and consistent top-end sailing. Each boat earned her spot in our list based upon her performance in regattas under varied sailing conditions. Our hats are off, not only to all the outstanding skippers and crews who make our Top 25 2016 list, but to all of you out there racing our challenging Northwest waters. This year’s 48° North/ Fisheries Supply Top 25 skippers may pick up their Battle Flag at our 48° North booth during the Seattle Boat Show at CenturyLink Exhibition Hall, Booth West #24, or our the office after the show. www.48North.com

Lowtide Center for Wooden Boats Presents Kaci Cronkhite January 20 Kaci Cronkhite, circumnavigator and author of Finding PAX, the legacy of love for a little wooden boat, will lead off The Center for Wooden Boats’ 3rd Friday Speaker Series, at 7:00 pm, at the CWB South Lake Union Boathouse, 1010 Valley St., Seattle. Though she had logged more than 60,000 as crew on boats worldwide, held a Captain’s license and had written and taught about ocean passage-making, Kaci had never entertained the idea of owning a boat until her love affair with the Spidsgatter, PAX. But she didn’t just become a new owner who restored her boat; she became the researcher and chronicler of PAX’s origin – a journey that took her through three countries. Along the way she met with many of the former owners of her boat and heard their stories. The Center for Wooden Boats; (206) 382-2628; www.cwb.org

A pair of grounding skegs on her flat bottom keep Scamp perfectly upright when landing on a beach or when the tide goes out.

Our Mainsail Why it’s different Actually, sails are very similar.
Our cruising spinnaker. Why you need one.
Sailmakers mostly buy their cloth from similar sources, use the same basic techniques, and frequently the same designs. But there is one major thing that separates our sails from theirs.
The wind. It’s fickle. From a stiff breeze to a whisper. In less time than it takes to say “What happened to the wind?” Our radial head drifter was designed specifically for light air performance. Plus, it sells at a price that leaves the other guys whistlin' Dixie.
The price. The Lee mainsail. A rugged, well built sail, big on performance, small on price.
Our genoa. Why it lasts so long.

Details. We care about 'em. Things like panel reinforcing at the clew, head and tack. A tape reinforced clew cringle. Rat-tailed boltropes. Triple stitched seams where necessary. Leather chafe protectors at head, tack and clew. Vinyl coated stainless steel luff wire.
The Lee Cruising Spinnaker. A great sail at a price that won’t leave you gasping. For a free brochure or an estimate, contact your nearest Lee Sails Representative.

The Pacific stretches at its widest point from Panama to the Philippines. The Pacific is 12 million square miles larger than all the land area of the world combined. The planet’s oldest ocean floor lies in 18,652 feet of water in the Pacific south of Japan’s main islands. The Pacific’s Marianas Trench, the world’s deepest trench, is six times deeper than the Grand Canyon. The size of the Pacific’s Great Garbage Patch is hard to determine, but has been estimated between size of Texas to twice the size of the continental United States.
Maritime Trivia by
B ryan H enry
The Pacific was the last ocean to be found by Western man. When Spain seized Guam in 1521 after Magellan’s voyage, it became the first European colony in the Pacific.
The earthquake that triggered the tsunami in the Indian Ocean in December 2004 created waves as high as 48-feet. The Arctic Ocean is completely ice-covered each winter and partially all year, thus it’s the only ocean you can walk across.
The Pacific has twice as many species of coral as the Atlantic.
The Arctic Ocean touches three continents---North America, Asia, and Europe---and is divided into a number of arbitrarily defined seas.
The highest and lowest tides in the Pacific occur around the Korean Peninsula, 30-feet, and about one-foot near Midway Islands.
The tropics occupy 36 percent of Earth’s land and include parts of North and South America, Africa, Asia, and Australia.
The highest and lowest tides in the Indian Ocean both occur along Australia’s west coast, 36-feet and two feet.
The subtropics refers to the zones between the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn and 40 degrees north and south of the Equator.
The Indian Ocean lies mostly in the tropics, so it’s the warmest of the oceans, with summer surface temperatures reaching 80 degrees Fahrenheit.
The Antarctic Convergence is an area where the waters of the Atlantic, Indian and Pacific Oceans meet the cold Antarctic Circumpolar Current.

Books The Pacific Northwest Coast is a dream cruising ground. You can travel by recreational boat from Seattle throughout the Salish Sea and along the British Columbia coast to Glacier Bay in Southeast Alaska. On the way, you will find a myriad of channels, islands and snug anchorages to explore. The thousands of miles of protected waters are a magnet for cruisers from around the world. Sailing along this coast adds even greater enjoyment to the journey.
While under sail, you will hear the sounds of nature, from blowing whales to puffing porpoises to jumping salmon, and even sea otters cracking shells on their chests. Based on years of experience sailing in these waters and countless hours of research, this guide helps you understand where and when you can find the best wind. It teaches you about how land changes the wind so you can understand the seemingly erratic
winds in these protected channels. It identifies the main forecast areas, weather condition reporting stations, and relevant tide and current prediction stations for each area. With this guide, you will learn how to spend more time sailing, and less time motoring, as you explore the magical northwest coast. Taken By The Wind: The Northwest Coast, A Guide to Sailing the Coasts of British Columbia and Southeast Alaska by Marilyn Johnson, $44.95, published by CreateSpace Independent, www.createspace.com
Do you want tot predict the weather? Looking at the sky will give you plenty of hints about the kind of weather that is on the way. The type and shape of the clouds, the color of the sky and the range of visibility are all indicators as to what weather will follow. In this unique book, 24 color photographs of cloud formations and accompanying text will help you read
the sky, pick up the clues and predict what the weather will do. There are skies associated with bad weather, sudden change, weather that will deteriorate and weather that will improve. Helpful tables facing each photograph will also help you predict how long each type of weather will last. This gem of a book has been a
best seller for almost 50 years. Now revised and brought right up to date, it will be invaluable to anyone participating in outdoor activities, from walking to sailing.

Harken’s patent-pending Reflex furlers provide sailors confidence that their free-flying spinnaker, gennakers and code sails will furl with speed and control. The result? Sailors use downwind sails more often—even when sailing shorthanded. Pull the furling line and the drive unit reacts reflexively to rotate the torsion cable, instantly transferring torque to the head swivel without unwanted twist delaying the response. The result is a fast, smooth roll-up and super-tight furl.
A unique quick-release modular T-fitting allows a single drive unit to handle multiple sails. The rolled sail easily disconnects with the pull of one spring-loaded pin, and a new furled sail slides and locks into the T-slot. Each sail has its own torsion cable, with head and tack swivels permanently fitted to each sail. The drive unit’s large diameter provides powerful furling, while its extreme low profile maximizes the sail’s luff length. The hardcoatanodized 6061-T6 aluminum sheave
spins on Torlon® ball bearings to reduce friction. A flexible cowling of impact-resistant polycarbonate alloy lets crew quickly feed the furling line into the drive sheave without tools. Offset holes grip rope securely when furling, with the stripper and feeder working together to prevent line from jamming. A choice of drive unit attachments to the bow fitting or sprit is offered. Check www.harken.com
The high solids formula requires fewer coats to reach the desired dry film thickness. An underwater barrier system applied either by roller/brush or airless spray can be achieved in just 7 mil Dry Film Thickness (DFT).
InterProtect HS uses Micro-Plate® Technology, which substantially reduces water migration through the epoxy to the hull surface and provides protection from corrosion for all metals. It can also be used as part of a gelcoat blister repair or prevention system and as an alternative no-sand primer on new, or never-been-painted fiberglass boats. Check www.yachtpaint.com
InterProtect HS is a versatile, cost-effective, two part epoxy that meets t h e m o s t re s t r i c t i v e V.O.C. regulations and helps reduce solvent emissions into the environment. It can be used above and below the waterline as a primer for all substrates. The new Quick Cleat™ Peel-n-Stick cleat uses a no-knot Quick Cleat mounted on a flexible vinyl laminate for easy positioning on a runabout, kayak, canoe, paddle board, or inflatable boat. Quickly set and adjust fenders anywhere they're needed. Just mount on the hull exterior or on the interior gunnels of inflatables - anywhere you don’t want to drill into the hull. On a kayak, canoe or SUP, a Peel-n-Stick 44
cleat is great for anchoring, towing a friend or gear, or to tie-off a bait bucket. To use, rotate the Quick Cleat and insert a ¼" rope. No knots needed. To adjust, simply pull the rope toward you, the rope will stay engaged in the cleat as you pull. To release the rope, simply rotate the cam to remove the rope. Three different shapes available in five substrate colors. Check: www.quick-cleat.com January 2017

Welcome to Sail Sand Point Welcome to Sail Sand Point, Seattle’s Community Boating Center; a non-profit 501(c)(3) incorporated in 1998. Our mission is to bring the joy and life-enhancing benefits of sailing and small boats to people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds. At Sail Sand Point, there is a program for anyone interested in sailing, paddling, or being on Lake Washington. Come rent a boat to sail or paddle, learn new sailing skills in adult classes, cruise the lake at one of our community events, or sign up kids for our summer camps. Sail Sand Point focuses on providing a welcoming environment in all of our camps and classes, where participants feel empowered to learn and succeed both on and off the water. In 2016, Sail Sand Point won US Sailing’s award for “10 years of Hallmark Performance,” which recognized the ongoing positive experiences people have at Sail Sand Point. Our programs are designed not only to teach people how to sail, but to help them discover that sailing is a fulfilling lifelong activity.

Our boat rental program provides the community with easy access to Lake Washington throughout the spring, summer, and fall. The goal of Open Boating is to introduce people to Sail Sand Point and allow anyone to get on the water in an accessible and affordable way. You can come down and try paddling on a kayak or paddleboard without any prior experience. To rent sailboats you must pass our skill test on the boat that you intend to sail. We have many types of sailboats from Lasers to Hobie 16’s. Check our website for more details on our fleet. We look forward to seeing you on the water this spring!

adult classes Learning how to sail at Sail Sand Point will provide the best foundation you can find for the future of your sailing career. Our courses aim to give students the skills and confidence needed to feel comfortable on the water. We always tell people that getting in the smallest boat you can find provides the best platform to develop your sailing skills. Smaller boats respond much faster and provide a more accurate “feel” for the wind than big boats do. Whether you’re looking to sail around the world or just take your friends and family out on the water it all starts here with small boat sailing. We have courses designed to accommodate a range of goals for new sailors. Whether you want the workout and balancing act associated with a tippy little boat, or a simple and stable catamaran we can get you on the water in a class that works for you!
“The big boats get the glory, but the small boats make the sailor.” -Wind (1992 Sailing Movie)
YOuth summer camps “This is awesome. This is LiFe!” - ssP camPer Summer camps are THE most fun way to experience sailing and paddling for the first time, to master new skills in intermediate classes, to cross the finish line in your first race, or to just hang out on the water with friends. Camps are offered over a 10-week period, from late June to the end of August, for full days or half days to accommodate varying schedules. Every SSP Instructor is US Sailing Level 1 certified, CPR/First Aid/AED certified, and has passed the WA Boater Safety Course and WA state background check. Most instructors have years of personal sailing and teaching experience, as well as an intimate knowledge of SSP’s programs and teaching philosophy; “Safety, Fun, and Learning.” Sailors who feel safe can have fun. And sailors who are having fun will continue to learn! Camps are designed for sailors of all levels ages 6-17. For parents, check out our “Mommy/Daddy & Me” Class, a family-oriented class for 6-8 year olds and a parent or grandparent meant to provide a friendly, positive first sailing experience for all.

Sail Sand Point incorporates Science, Technology, Engineering, Math education into nearly all of our programs. We have worked with US Sailing’s STEM Education Initiative, Reach, to create kid-friendly, sailing-related modules that are used throughout summer camps and classes. Because of Sail Sand Point’s unique geographic location, we have the opportunity to modify some of the STEM modules to incorporate our local ecosystem into lessons, making the learning experience more immersive and relevant for students. We have had the opportunity to see first-hand that when STEM is coupled with onthe-water experience, young sailors are able to see how science fits into their everyday lives in a very exciting and tangible way.
adaptive sailing Here at Sail Sand Point we are convinced that there is nothing more rewarding than sailing. It provides a sense of freedom and gratification that cannot be found on land. It is our belief that this must be shared with any and all who are interested. Currently Sail Sand Point is the only location in the region where a boater with a disability can sail or paddle any day of the week during the summer. Our Adaptive Sailing committee works with other community organizations, such as Seattle Children’s Hospital and Outdoors for All, to build partnerships and develop programming that allow us to serve the diverse needs of our community. This includes making our current programs accessible to all who are interested, and adding programs that can be further adapted for specific needs of groups and individuals alike. Boats used include Hobie Waves, kayaks, keelboats, and the front-facing, keeled 2.4 meter dinghies.
schOlarships At Sail Sand Point, finances don’t get in the way of sailing. We provide scholarships to youths, adults, and groups in all of our programs, including adult classes, youth camps, shipmates, and more. The application is short and does not require detailed financial information. Application available on our website at www.sailsandpoint.org
cOmmunitY events monday nighT racing
All summer long Monday nights at Sail Sand Point are where you’ll find some great small boat racing followed by a BBQ and potluck. This ongoing tradition is open to people of all skill levels and it is absolutely the best way to sharpen your skills. Nothing inspires quick and focused learning like racing. This casually competitive environment allows sailors to grow into the sport of sailboat racing. The BBQ after racing allows you to ask questions and learn from those who were faster than you! There is no better way to grow as a sailor while making a great group of new friends. Racing starts at 6pm, Memorial-Labor Day.
FuLL moon evening saiLing

shipmates Shipmates is a one-day, mission-based program that partners with organizations and groups in the greater Seattle area to bring a wide range of participants down to explore the lake and experience their city from an entirely new perspective. The goal is to offer groups of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds the unique opportunity to get out on the water sailing, paddling, and exploring our marine environment in a safe and supportive atmosphere. Your one-day program can include sailing on Hobie Waves, paddling on stand up paddleboards or kayaks, or marine science activities that relate to the water, wind, and our environment â€“ or a combination of all three! We are always happy to work with a group to create a custom program to meet their needs and goals.
YOuth racing SPYS (Sand Point Youth Sailing) aims to use racing as both an exciting sport and as a learning tool to become a better sailor. Practices are generally held twice a week (Tues/Thurs) in the afternoons. Sailors also may compete in several weekend regattas throughout the season. The different teams and practice seasons are described below. Some sailing experience is important, but prior racing experience is not necessary for participation in any of the teams. This program involves the dedication of parents as well as sailors. Please contact the office for more information or to learn if SPYS is right for your sailor. Tuition for SPOT and SPYS includes a youth open boating pass so sailors can sail all summer long! sPys Team: Ages 12-18 SPYS is Sail Sand Pointâ€™s flagship youth racing group.This is a great opportunity for kids who took a summer sailing or racing camp to continue to experience sailing with their peers throughout the summer season!

Podcasts for Sailors by Jerry Thompson In our modern world, there are many ways to access great stories and information. One way that has everincreasing popularity is the media of podcasts. Excitingly, there are a number of free podcasts available that target sailors. You may be asking, what is a podcast? A podcast is like a radio show that you can stream or download and listen to at your leisure. It is a digital audio file that can be played on a number of devices to include: smartphones, iPods, tablets, and computers. Portable devices add great flexibility to podcast listening. Any lengthy drive, like a commute, can be filled with entertaining and informative podcasts about sailing. I live about an hour away from my marina so I fill that drive time with sailing podcasts. Aboard your vessel, while in a slip or at anchor, are other great times to enjoy your favorite podcast. Many people also listen while working out, simultaneously improving both your
mind and body! Like radio, the ability to multitask while enjoying podcasts is one of their primary appeals. Unlike radio, however, they’re available on demand. Another great feature of podcasts is that they are generally long-form media. Many podcasters will have conversations or interviews with sailors you really want to hear from for hours on end! Whether it’s white-knuckle adventure, in-depth education, or side splitting entertainment. More time with your favorite sailors is a good thing! Before I reveal the sailing podcasts I recommend, I want to share how to go about downloading and playing podcasts. What is the best device to use for managing and listening to podcasts? In my opinion, it is your smartphone. I suspect a few of you are still clinging to flip phones. Sailing podcasts may be your excuse to take the plunge into the world of smartphones! Your phone can be used to manage and play podcasts. With Bluetooth technology you can send podcasts to www.48North.com
your Bluetooth equipped car stereo or speaker when listening aboard your boat. Headphones or earbuds, wired or Bluetooth, are great for listening while walking, working in the yard, or working out. To listen to podcasts on your smartphone you need a podcatcher app. There are many podcatcher apps available in the app stores (Google Play for Android and iTunes for iOS). The App I recommend for podcasts is Podbean, though there are many other good alternatives like the app called “Podcast” that comes standard on Apple devices. Podbean is free and powerful. It allows you to search for and find the podcasts you want and download episodes automatically. It will also remove podcasts that you have listened to. Podbean is intuitive and easy to use. Simply search for the podcast you want and subscribe to it done! Well almost... when you subscribe you will automatically receive all new episodes. But what about all of the great old episodes? You can download 49
all the old episodes, however this is a manual procedure. Whatever your podcatcher app choice, you should be able to customize and configure to your liking. I prefer to download to my SD card, which has plenty of room. You could run into trouble if you select internal storage and somehow manage to fill it up. Your smartphone may start acting weird. I also like to turn on the Autoplay Next Episode function. This way, if I’m on a long drive and finish an episode, the next episode automatically runs. Personally, I do not allow cellular downloads or streaming in my settings. This ensures episodes will only download when you have a wifi connection, saving valuable and expensive cellular bandwidth. For some, the data may be less of an issue than the storage space, and this can make streaming a better option. I like to receive notifications when new episodes are available too, so I also turn that on. Typically, you may also customize the settings for an individual podcast. If you don’t have or want to use a smartphone, there are many other ways to enjoy podcasts. You can listen on other types of devices. For a computer, I find it’s easiest to use Apple’s iTunes software, which comes standard on Apple products but requires a download on a PC. Apple developed iTunes to make it easy to find and subscribe to podcasts. I will not get into the technicalities of RSS feeds. All you need to know is that when you subscribe to podcasts in iTunes (or most other podcatcher apps) new episodes are automatically delivered. You can easily copy or “synchronize” the episodes to an iPod for listening on the go. Downloading iTunes, as well as the sailing podcasts I will recommend in this article, are all free. Free is good! Once you’re in iTunes, searching for, selecting, and subscribing to podcasts will be similar to many mobile podcatcher apps. Use the search box (upper right) and make sure iTunes store is selected. iTunes will find a number of podcasts (top section) and podcast episodes (bottom section) for you to choose from. Subscribe (middle left) to automatically receive all new episodes. Don’t forget to click “Get” to see all of the old episodes and to download, if desired. You can then 50
synchronize these podcasts to your iPod or you can listen to them on your computer. You can also enjoy podcasts via online streaming services like Sound Cloud or Stitcher, or directly on the podcast webpages. Some older websites may require use of a local audio player such as Windows Media Player or VLC. Listening via websites is the least flexible, but it may be what works for you. Now that you have some ideas about how to access podcasts to download or stream, here are my recommendations! On The Wind (formally 59° North with Andy Shell) 59-north.com/podcast/ Available on: Podcatchers and iTunes Andy Shell is an excellent sailor and a prolific podcaster. He also writes articles for sailing magazines, presents workshops on a number of nautical subjects, manages sailing rallies (Caribbean 1500), and along with his wife Mia, takes guests on sailing adventures, ocean passages, aboard their 48’ Swan, Isbjorn. Andy and Mia both blog about their sailing adventures as well. Andy’s podcasts are first rate, highly produced, and extremely informative and entertaining. Andy is honest and open (I offer episode 154, “Appendicitis Offshore,” as evidence). Andy has frank discussions with the most interesting present day sailors and people associated with sailing. I have listened to every episode and have never been disappointed. Here are a few of my favorites: • Matt Rutherford: sailor, adventurer, ocean researcher, Episodes 2, 3, 16, 37, 78 124, 157 • Lin and Larry Pardey: King and Queen of cruising, authors, Episode 4 • Donald Street: sailor, author, Episode 7 • Paul Exner: sailor, Episodes 17, 100, 157 • Mario Vittone: rescue swimmer, trainer, Episode 41 • Brion Toss: rigger extraordinaire, Episodes 56, 57 • Webb Chiles: sailor, author, adventurer, Episode 84 • Senator Tom Harken: sailor, January 2017
Episode 98 • Gary Jobson: America’s Cup sailor and commentator, Episode 99 • Tania Aeb: sailor, Episode 104 The Sailing Podcast with David and Carina Anderson http://thesailingpodcast.com/ Available on: Podcatchers and iTunes Based in Queensland, Australia, David “has a chat” with many fascinating sailors. David’s easy, relaxed interview style allows his guests to feel very comfortable in telling their stories. This results in interviews that are extremely interesting and entertaining. Here are just a few of the people David has chatted with: • Matt Rutherford: sailor, adventurer, ocean researcher, Episodes 22, 65 • Web Chiles: sailor, author, adventurer, Episode 24 • Jeff Siegel of Active Captain: Episode 26 • Wally Moran: one of the first to sail to Cuba, Episode 30 • James Wharram: catamaran designer, Episode 45 • Lin Pardey: sailing royalty, author, Episode 52 The Furled Sails - The World’s First Sailing Podcast http://www.furledsails.com/ Available on: Podbean only Noel and Christy Davis are pioneers in podcasting and hosted the world’s first sailing podcast, The Furled Sails. As pioneers, they experienced some equipment and sound issues when first starting out in September 2005. For a number of years they “hid” their first three episodes. But, they finally succumbed to subscriber pressure and put the elusive first three back up for public consumption. They quickly hit their stride and interviewed many of the most important sailors and sailboat designers in the world. Sadly, some of the folks they interviewed are no longer with us, but their stories live on thanks to Noel and Christy. The Furled Sails published their last episode in May 2010. The iTunes store unfortunately no longer stocks their podcast. However, Podbean still has The Furled Sails. You must instruct Podbean to download each episode, which takes a little doing, but it is well worth it. I downloaded all 151 episodes and they only consumed
3 GBs on my smartphone’s SD memory card. I configured Podbean not to delete The Furled Sails episodes after listening as I want to listen to them yet again sometime in the future. I have listened to every episode twice, and look forward to a third time in a couple of years. Some of my favorites: • Lin and Larry Pardey: King and Queen of cruising, authors, Episodes 52 and 53 • David and Jaja Martin: sailors and adventurers, Episodes 56 and 57 • Nick Maloney: sailing legend, circumnavigator, Episode 58 • Karen Larson and Jerry Powlas: owners of Good Old Boat Magazine, Episode 63 • Pete Goss: renowned 1996/97 Vendee Globe sailor, Episode 65 • Reese Palley: sailor, adventurer, author, legend, Episode 68 • Ted Brewer: sailor and sailboat designer, Episode 74 • Sven Yrvind: extraordinary sailor, Episodes 96 and 97 • John Guzzwell: of Trekka around the world fame, Episodes 106, 107 • Webb Chiles: sailor, author, adventurer, Episodes 116, 117 • Serge Testa: world record for circumnavigating in the smallest boat, Episode 128 • Chief from Watertribe: Episodes 133, 134 • Phil Bolger: designer of unique boats, Episodes 146, 147 Shooting the Breeze Sailing http://theescapepods.com Available on: Podcatchers and iTunes Jeff Wettig is the host of this “blue collar” sailing podcast. He concentrates on the Chesapeake Bay which is the largest estuary in the United States and home to many yacht clubs. Jeff seeks out and has conversations with everyday sailors who spend lots of time sailing, including those who may just be passing through. Jeff’s downto-earth style makes listening easy and entertaining. The Sailing Rode http://www.thesailingrode.com/ Available on: Podcatchers and iTunes Steve and Brandy share their cruising experiences aboard their trailer sailboat, S/V Wiki Honu, and much more. Lessons learned, interviews and
tips are all included. BBC Radio Solent - The H2O Show http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/ p002m27x Available on: Podcatchers and iTunes I admit the H2O Show covers much more than sailing. It is about all things maritime in England with the focus on the Solent which is the body of water between mainland England and the Isle of Wight. Rich in maritime history, the Solent is host to many sailing regattas and I suspect has more sailboats per square kilometer than anywhere else in the world. Sir Robin Knox Johnston
co-hosted many of the early podcasts which lends a salty, authentic feel to the show. If you have never listened to a podcast, try one, I think you will be hooked. It can open up a whole new world of sailing! Jerry Thompson is an Information Systems professional who works and lives in eastern North Carolina. He learned to sail at the Armed Forces Recreation Center, Lake Chiemsee, Germany. North Carolina’s mild winters keep Jerry sailing year round.

e are cruising. This, for those that are familiar with the lifestyle, succinctly answers two of the most common questions: What do you do and where do you live? However, for those that are unfamiliar with the cruising life, this same statement opens up Mary Poppins’ magical bag of questions. With an impending visit to our Virginia hometowns, I wondered how many questions I could handle. At the end of November, after a condensed three-week sail down the Baja Peninsula, John and I secured Halcyon in a marina, emptied the fridge, opened all the lockers, strapped the dinghy down, and caught a plane to visit our Virginia family. There is always a pang of sadness when we leave the boat these days. More than just a home on the water, Halcyon embodies our dreams and carries scars of the hard work it has taken to get us here.

I needed to brace myself for the sideways glances and confused countenances, steel myself against the onslaught of questions, and try to recall how I’ve coached myself into making a choice among 37 different brands of crackers. I did receive some sideways glances and confused countenances – from the Uber driver, the hair stylist, my great aunt. Our cruising lifestyle is tough for some Richmond-ers to grasp. When I got my hair cut (oh the luxury!), I just couldn’t quite paint an accurate picture for my stylist. I told her I lived on a boat to clarify just how little time and effort I spend on my hair. “That’s cool. I had a friend that worked on a cruise ship once.” Not quite the same – I own this boat and it’s a bit smaller than that. “Where did you spend Thanksgiving?” On my boat, in Mexico. “Oh – you had to work?” No, it’s not a job, though it’s not quite vacation either. “Is your boat in the ocean right now?” Well, yes, but not just floating out there. It’s tied up to a dock in a marina. “Is that how you got to Virginia?” No, I used an airplane for that. “Have you been to Europe?” I have, but not on my boat – we travel slower than you’re imagining. “Oh – how about Africa?” Wow this is tougher than I thought. Let’s talk about your day instead. To strangers in brief exchanges, I quickly reverted to being a business consultant from Seattle, in order to accomplish more than one task an
“We Are Cruising” By Becca Guillote
We are proud of her, and it always feels like something of a betrayal to leave her behind. But, the excitement of seeing family and meeting our new baby nephew kept me energized through the ceaseless departure preparations. Once on the plane, the unease of the awaiting culture-shock set in. I spent the travel hours mentally preparing myself for reentry into society; and not just any society, but the proper Southern society of Richmond, Virginia. This society is generally far removed from sailboat Not everybody back home immediately understood what racing, weekend cruising, Becca and John are doing, but many understood why and coworkers who live they were doing it. 52
hour. But from friends and extended family, the questions tumbled out in undulating waves of curiosity and fascination. Where is the boat? Isn’t it hard? Where are you going next? What do you eat? Is it safe? What do you do at night? How do you communicate? Is it scary? How do you get food? When are you coming back? Are you having fun? The questions were heartfelt and more diverse than I expected, and I enjoyed sharing stories about our adventure and lifestyle. I connected with a second cousin who lives in rural Virginia over researching solar panels for their RV. I typed up and printed recipes for my aunt after a long conversation about what and how I cook on the boat. At one point, I found myself explaining how happy I felt to actually be out there cruising. After more than five years of talk and plans, we are finally making it happen. I’m proud of myself for that. I’m proud of us. It was then that I noticed a commonality among all of my curious companions. With the initial line of questions satisfied, the next statement
always carried the same sentiment: “Good for you.” Despite having little vision of what my daily life looks like, these friends and relatives appreciate that what we are doing is special. That we are undertaking an adventure sure to shape our perspectives and our lives. The motives and goals underlying the decision to bob around in the world in a small fiberglass tub that’s older than either of us are ones they understand, even if they are still grasping the details. Maybe they share some of those same motivating sentiments, too. This was unexpected. I had mentally prepared myself for the questions and the glances under the assumption that these questions and glances came from a place of bewilderment and perplexity, with a tone of “better you than me.” That is not the case. The questioners and glancers are certainly curious, but it’s because they are excited and impressed. They are proud of us, too. And so, as we depart Richmond to return to Halcyon and the new version of our daily life, I return with a new sense of pride for the decisions we have made, an appreciation for
the existence we have created, and an enthusiasm for the adventure we invite into our lives. We have cut the lines and sailed off into the sunset, and that’s an accomplishment. Becca and John are now back in Mexico. Follow their adventures at halcyonwandering.com

That’s Gonna Leave a Mark! The Rules can be Complicated, Misinformation Makes it Worse! By Andy Schwenk The other day a Washington state ferry collided with a private vessel. I have lived in the Puget Sound since 1978 and the only other time I know of this happening was recently when a different Washington state ferry drove over a 30’ sailboat. It was reported to me that the skipper and the woman on the helm of the ferry both lost their jobs in that case. The details of this latest case of course will be hashed out by Maritime legal eagles but the video evidence seems shockingly clear. The powerboat is approaching from the right on a collision course. This was taught to me as “constant bearing, decreasing range.” The video, involving the ferry and a pleasure boat appropriately named Nap Tyme is easy to find on Youtube or other stops along the information superhighway. It certainly appears to me, right from the start, that the situation is quickly approaching the point where the give way vessel is not taking action soon enough to avoid the collision. With a collision imminent, this is when the stand on vessel must take action to avoid a collision. In this case, it appears the give way vessel 54
does not take action soon enough to avoid a collision and the stand on vessel does not either, and soa collision follows. This is the part that may surprise you, however: In my opinion, the give way vessel should have been the ferry. It does not appear the ferry was affected at all, except for, perhaps, the careers of those on the bridge. The pleasure boat certainly suffers damage but I have a feeling the citizenry of the people of Washington will likely being paying for a portion of it. Even in a situation where you are the stand on vessel and required to maintain course and speed you are also required to keep a look out and take evasive action if needed when the give way vessel fails to do so. I know ferry boats are not nearly as maneuverable as a 40’ pleasure boat, but that just means they have to take action sooner. Typically, the USCG assigns a certain amount of blame for the accident to each vessel, rarely is one skipper entirely to blame in the maritime court system. To be sure, there are places where ferries must be granted the right of way due to the restrictions related to their size. January 2017
I am surprised this doesn’t happen more often. The roads are patrolled by all kinds of agencies, state patrol, local cops, reservation cops, sheriffs, and the list goes on. We see all kinds of accidents. In fact, there was a 54 car pile up today in Baltimore. These involve licensed drivers on roadways that are clearly marked in vehicles that, in many states, that require inspections. The waters of Puget Sound are much less forgiving. The Washington State Ferry (WSF) system is currently being overhauled after a Thanksgiving weekend not so long ago when at least two boats were condemned by the USCG inspector and one regularly scheduled run completely shut down for several months. A quick check of their website shows that one boat, the Evergreen State, was built in 1954. I can’t imagine any other public transportation system using hardware over 60 years old. Certainly metro buses are newer than this and look what happened to that Duck Boat tourist vehicle that predates World War II. The WSF system has a fantastic safety record, they have recorded millions of miles in all kinds of weather. Wind and waves, snow and sleet, daylight and darkness, and now in recent months two collisions in broad daylight and fairly calm conditions. Why is this happening? Or maybe we should ask ourselves why did this not happen sooner or at least more often? It is obvious from my conversations with fellow mariners and my casual research of various websites that many (and I would probably argue most) people do not have a basic understanding of the rules of the road as they apply to boats. At least one Washington State Boater Education Card online certification course is disseminating the wrong information, stating, “A sailing vessel is defined by law as motor vessel if it is fitted with an engine, the engine need not be engaged or idling.” This is not correct, but it is from an apparently reputable source, so you can see how things get complicated. I’ll forgive their grammar but the boat you see featured in the top right of the page to the right (one of my favorite to sail aboard) is not a power driven vessel, at least not when the engine is this position, idling or not. I’m hoping one of you loyal readers
could explain to me why it’s important for my wife to know the features and or function of the carburetor on a jet ski in order to receive a Washington State Boaters Education Card that is administered by the same people that wrote this line of nonsense. She has sailed safely to Hawaii and back at least 3 times and hasn’t hit any ferries yet, but in order for her to legally use our family sailboat, she needs to pay a fee and answer questions administered by government agents that clearly do not understand the system of rules for the for the test they are providing? Sometimes determining the vessel that is the stand on and the vessel that is the give way is not immediately clear. For example, when sailboats have their engine in gear while still flying sails they are obligated to exhibit a conical shape, apex downward. A “motoring cone,” if you will. It can be difficult
for a non sailor watching a sailboat approach under main only and preparing to give way, only to find out the sailboat also is using machinery for propulsion and is also planning on giving way. It might have been a little easier in the days when sailboats were so slow that it was obvious that they were motoring when they were moving at high speed in light wind conditions.
But now, with foiling monohulls and high speed multihulls, how is an unsuspecting power boater to know? He might be seeing your exhaust cloud because you are charging the battery with the transmission in neutral to create stored voltage to watch the Seahawks make their run to the Superbowl on the big screen. Or you could have the transmission in gear to hurry home to find out what’s for dinner? I know the holidays are over, but you should get your favorite sailor a motoring cone this sailing season! Of course, if that individual only sails on inland waters and the vessel is less than 12 meters, then save your money. If you are thinking the “inland waters” clause will save your pocketbook, think again, all the waterways of Puget Sound are rated International, not inland waters. Please remember that some

A USCG Instructor Response to the BoaterExam.com Document: Holy COW, is that ever wrong! Directly from the Rules book: “The term sailing vessel means any vessel under sail provided that propelling machinery, if fitted, is not being used.” By the way, that BoaterExam.com piece is wrong in two additional places: (1) stating categorically that commercial traffic always has the right of way, and (2) even in its use of the phrase “right of way.” Nowhere do the Rules give precedence to commercial traffic over recreational traffic. It only appears that way because of Rule 9 (Narrow Channels) and Rule 10 (Traffic Separation Schemes), plus the ferry exclusion zones, which are not part of the Rules, but rather an issue of Large Passenger Vessel Security. There isn’t even a “Law of Gross Tonnage” as many believe. Nowhere do the Rules assign “right of way.” Instead, the Rules identify a Stand-on and Give way vessel, depending on their approach to one another, and assigns responsibilities for each to avoid collision. Captain Skip Anderson Director, Flagship Maritime
individuals are trying to scratch out a living on the waters of the Salish Sea and most of us are just out to have a good time. With this in mind, I think it is appropriate to take evasive action and “show a side” early so the professional mariner easily understands what your intentions are. Where possible, be courteous and pass well behind vessels entitled to the right-of-way. The definitive source for all rules regarding the rights and responsibilities for vessels meeting on the water are contained in the “Navigation Rules and Regulations Handbook.” This is still under 200 pages long, is widely available, and produced by the US Department of Homeland Security/ USCG. These rules were formalized in 1972 and became effective in 1977. It is high time the Washington State Boaters Education Card programs honored them accurately and fixed the misinformation on their site. As you may know, this is not the only place the internet can lead
you astray. Just as the prudent mariner does not rely on one single source for navigation, neither should he or she count on what someone says regarding “commercial traffic” having the right of way. As Skip notes to the left, “right of way” is not even referred to in the Rules handbook. No matter if you plan to head out on the water in a seaplane or a submarine, even if you find yourself on a vessel not under command or constrained by draft, the rules are definitive. I would also add that, when you are taking the test for USCG Merchant Mariners Credential (commonly referred to as a Captain’s license), the only portion that they require 100% proficiency is the “Rules of the Road.” For each day shape that is required when the weather is clear, there is a corresponding light sequence and sound signal for areas of restricted visibility for fog and sandstorms.

Cruising Bute Inlet by Conrad Wharton
ying at the northern edge of Desolation Sound, Bute Inlet is generally passed over by cruisers. Most sailors, it seems, are headed further north or are content to stay in the cozy passages to the south. The inlet offers very little in the way of anchorages, shelter, or shore access. Itâ€™s not necessarily an ideal place to visit in a slow little sailboat from Seattle. Take a quick glance at google earth, though, and youâ€™ll notice that the head of the inlet is ringed with dramatic, glaciated peaks. It also has an interesting history, with repeated attempts at development being thwarted in one way or another.

Carbon Cruising Cutter Project By Joe Cline There is something uniquely “Pacific Northwest” happening in Anacortes right now. There are four identical 43’ offshore cruising cutters being built out of carbon fiber at Betts Boats. These are a special custom project, designed by the prolific Pacific Northwest yacht designer, Robert “Bob” Perry. To me, this project represents the capacities and complexities found within our group of local industry professionals and sailing enthusiasts. It seems like so many of the extraordinary projects that come out of our region have one eye looking back toward the traditional and the other looking to the leading edge of modern development, design, and technology. Whether fast boats built of wood, or in this case, cruising boats built of carbon, the variety and versatility are typically on display. The cherry on top is to find the knowledge, talent, skills, and facilities to make it all happen right here in western Washington. Perry is a Northwest guy who has been successfully drawing boats since the seventies, so you may already know him personally. Even if you don’t know him, you certainly know his 60
yachts with a traditional look utilizing modern materials. Though Perry says he shared the vision with the client immediately, as with all custom projects, many elements and motivations for this project are very client-driven. Perry’s answer to many of my questions didn’t go far beyond, “that’s what the client had in mind, and I got to figure out how to make it happen.” While these are not high performance boats, the carbon build will make these boats perform better than many similar looking boats. However, it may not be for the reason you’d guess. It was when I asked, “Why build offshore cruisers out of carbon fiber?” that Perry helped me have that ah-ha moment. “Well, first off, these are not going to be light displacement boats. The total displacement is going to be over 35,000 pounds.” Perry noted that this is not significantly lighter than a similar boat would be if built out of fiberglass. But here’s the kicker: Perry told me, “Most boats like this are actually under-ballasted. The weight of the hull is usually so heavy that the boat becomes far too heavy if you use as much ballast as you probably should. One of the main benefits of building these boats out of carbon fiber is that we can get the ballast-to-displacement ratio to roughly 45%.” As a comparison, consider several of Perry’s proven offshore designs. The Valiant 40, which has a long fin keel has a ballast-to-displacement ratio of 36%. The full-keeled Baba 40 makes it to
designs: the Valiant 40; the Baba 30, 35, and 40; the Tayana 37; the Passport 40; a fleet of Islander designs; the Nordic 40 and 44; among many, many others. The Perry brand is built on boats that pass the sail test as well as the eye test – they’re generally known to be beautiful, capable, and fast. Though he’s best known for his cruising boat designs, Perry has designed boats to be built out of carbon before, including the powerful and banshee-fast racer/cruiser Icon. I’ve gotten looks that range from inquisitive to perplexed to skeptical when I’ve described this Perry Carbon Cutter project. Yacht design seems to me to be as much a balance of priorities and compromise as it is a balance of art and science. In this case, the priority was to Elements of the design, like the bowsprit, belie the cutting build comfortable edge construction and the creativity of the project, but they p a s s a g e - m a k i n g do foster a pleasing, familiarly traditional appearance.

41%. When I learned about the ballastto-displacement ratio on these carbon cutters, I immediately thought of the only boats I knew of that were in that range, ultralight displacement boats like the Moore 24 (49%) and the Santa Cruz 27 (50%). Perry smiled and said, “Well, it’s getting there.” Perry went on, “You could build this boat out of pretty much anything, but, the further you get away from carbon, the less ballast you would get.” Perry noted that “the displacementto-length ratio is about the same as a Valiant 40. It’s 43’ long, and it’s almost all waterline.” So, while this is a carbon boat that will never plane and Perry thinks it’s unlikely that it will even surf, he did say, “this is a boat that will do eight or nine knots in pretty much any direction for days on end.” Though the construction is cutting edge, there’s a lot that’s quite traditional about the design. These cutters have transom-hung rudders, which was a specific request of the client. Perry sees that the rudder, the lower freeboard, and the deck layout all contribute to the more traditional look. On first glance, hull #1 reminded me slightly of a big Bristol Channel Cutter. I learned that Perry and this client each had Atkin cutters in their minds as inspiration. One of the first things Perry showed me when we entered the shop was the carbon strut that extends from the bottom aft corner of the keel to the bottom of the outboard rudder. Like essentially all the parts on the boat, this was a custom part built (of carbon fiber, of course) right there in the Betts shop. It sat right next to the female mold that one side of the strut came out of. Perry told me that he wasn’t positive it was necessary, but the strut will protect the rudder and the propeller while supporting the rudder tip. It’s also replaceable in the event of damage or failure. While he acknowledged that the boat could function without it, this part has been dubbed, “the chastity strut,” because if you didn’t have it, you might be f**ked. Once the drawings began taking shape, the client asked Perry about where to have the boats built. “I told him I had been thinking about Jim Betts in Anacortes,” Perry remarked. The client was floored. As a PNW local, he is in Anacortes frequently. A local

Getting to poke around the Betts Boats shop would have been cool regardless of the project they were working on. Their whole team was friendly, welcoming, and professional.

Ultimately, Betts Boats lead designer, Neil Racicot found a few ways to improve Racicot, notes that in the Perry Carbon functionality as well, particularly Cutters, they have kind of a dream for the windlass and anchor roller project. It’s a custom job, so, they positioning, and Perry told me he likes get to have the fun and challenge Racicot’s design of the bowsprit better of designing, engineering, and than his own. manufacturing custom parts. But since Racicot also engineered stanchion there are multiple units, they can use base attachments that would fail (if component designs for the next few they fail) above the structure of the projects, making the construction of the bulwark and could be easily replaced later hulls more efficient.

lighter than a similar fiberglass boat. Betts made the molds in-house. A key factor in what kind of mold to use is the choice, again a request from the client, to have internal ballast. For this reason, a male mold is required, as it would be very difficult to ensure even construction in the deep cavity of the keel sump. The choice of internal ballast displays the client’s desire for a careful and conservative approach. There are arguments for both types of ballast internal and external - but a well-made internally ballasted boat is less likely to lose its keel. I trust that there are great examples in the world, but it is hard for me to imagine bolting on a 16,000 pound lead keel to anything. The keel itself is a notable design feature. It is long, compared to more performance-oriented fin keels, and deep compared to standard full keels. The capacity for increased ballast is accomplished in both dimensions. Internal ballast is most common among full-keel boats, including many that Perry has designed. The client’s original request was for a full keel. But after some deliberation with Perry the
three-quarter keel with the “chastity strut” was the choice. One of the complications of internal ballast is that you don’t have soft lead to limit damage from a grounding. As a means to counteract that concern, the lay-up begins to mix some fiberglass with the carbon composite as you move from the hull to the bottom of the keel. There’s more than an inch of pure fiberglass on the keel’s bottom edge. Accomplishing a layup that thick with carbon would have been both too time consuming and too expensive, plus at this position on the boat, the additional weight is only a benefit. The client’s desire for a meticulous product has influenced some other elements of the design. He seems like a real belt-and-suspenders kind of a guy, which can be a great attribute in an ocean sailor. A good example is that he wanted two antennas for the SSB radio, instead of only one. Perry had drawn the boat with a single backstay, but considering the double antenna request from the client, he split the backstays and the antennas will be inside these composite stays, one on each side. Another example of the very
conservative approach for these boats is the fact that they don’t have any thru-hulls. Utilizing technology typical of larger boats, the carbon cutters use a sea-chest, which the Betts team designed and manufactured to fit the boat. Making the boats safer yet, the cutters have three water-tight bulkheads. These cutters don’t have traditional chain plates, either. The shroud attachments, which are integrated into the massive rolled bulwarks reminded me of some I’ve seen on carbon TP52s. Those shrouds will be attached to a two-spreader carbon fiber mast. I asked Perry whether he was loading the boat up with a lot of extra sail power, given the extra ballast. While he drew a more modern cutter sailplan than the boats that had inspired the design, he didn’t add a ton of extra sail. This is in line with his thinking that many boats are under-ballasted. He’s hoping the client won’t have to shorten sail too early in offshore conditions. The interior layout of the cutters highlights their given purpose. They are spacious with ample storage, but very ocean friendly. There’s not a

double-berth to be found on the boat, and all the single berths were designed to be proper sea berths. The carbon fiber handrails give the interior a sexy look. Access to the engine is superb, and there’s still space for a genset and a huge battery bank. Ultimately, my impressions are that these will be beautiful and sturdy boats. I admit it wasn’t exactly my expectation. Having spent some time on carbon boats, I know them to be fast and light, but also know that they must be treated with care in a way I never experienced on fiberglass boats. I figured these would be burlier than those race boats, but I didn’t have a read on exactly how much. The answer is clearly a lot burlier! I believe these boats will be fast cruisers that are going to love the ocean. I think they will be a striking boat at the dock, at anchor, or especially under sail. I can’t wait to see one in action. The planned splash date for hull #1 is sometime in April. As I understand it, there will be a production break between the completion of the second boat and the beginning of production on the third, to allow for new information
from sail testing. One of my favorite parts of my meeting with Perry at the Betts facility was asking him whether he’d been this involved with the production of any of his other designs.

LESSONS LEARNED WHILE CRUISING Jamie & Behan Gifford
Raising the Flag In 2003, we sailed with a group of fellow Seattle Yacht Club members on an organized cruise to the Gulf Islands. It was our first time clearing into another country, and we were so excited to use our snappy new Canadian courtesy flag after clearing in at Ganges. Imagine our dismay when a few hours later, a patient sailor pointed out that in our haste, we had hoisted it…upside down. An international sign of distress, although in our case the distress followed the flag instead of the other way around! Normally, we love flying flags on Totem: we always get courtesy flags and we’re proud to fly a US flag on the transom. We enjoy others as well, from burgees to flags of local significance. Someday, I’d love to make a house flag—our own private signal. Flying a courtesy flag in most other countries is literally a courtesy — there’s no obligation, it’s simply the right thing to do. But flags can be more than just nautical tradition. Occasionally it’s required, and sometimes comes with additional regulations. In Indonesia, for example, the Indonesian courtesy flag must be larger than your national flag (if also flown). This can make for an unusually sized courtesy flag! We didn’t bother with a yellow “Q” flag (quarantine) for trips to
Canada, but when anticipating arrival in a new country, we hoist it as a matter of practice. Sometimes it’s required. The Q flag is replaced by a courtesy flag only after clearance is complete- or after pratique is granted, if you want to sound fancy. In Puget Sound we had a heavyduty Canadian courtesy flag for our summertime trips to the Gulf Islands, with strong reinforced edges and grommets to secure it. As cruisers, inexpensive stick flags are conveniently the right size and a fraction of the cost. Some cruisers make their own, but I’m not handy with a sewing machine, and these are a bargain! We have made a few flags as homeschool projects, but some of them are very tricky! More frequently, we just order whatever we expect to need for a year or so at a time. A little hand sewing is necessary to strengthen the hoist edge and create a loop at each end to tie your lines into. These are not intended for long use in the harsh sun; they are supposed to be pretty little desk flags. Unsurprisingly, they don’t last long, but they last long enough—a few months in the tropics is about as much as we usually we need. We had a lesson on the effect of the sun on those courtesy flags recently. Totem was newly secured in a tidy mooring field adjacent a yacht club in Connecticut where Jamie and I were due to give a presentation. Other cruisers were arriving by boat. Every boat flew multiple burgees. So in anticipation of the gathering we looked forward to putting on Totem’s party clothes: a vivid stand of flags from bow to masthead. They’re eye-catching and a conversation “I loved the evening ritual of lowering and carefully putting nice it away at sunset, teaching our children respect for their flag.” starter. 64
What started the conversation this time wasn’t the colorful flags Totem wore, but our struggle in getting them set. Damaged by UV, the strand had parted about 30 feet off Totem’s deck. While Niall scrambled up the mast to reclaim the flailing line, a neighbor dinghied up. “Oh, don’t be too embarrassed!” came the call. “It happens to everyone.” And then, “Hey, what are those flags, anyway?” These were the flags of countries collected during the last eight years, the courtesy flags we flew in succession around the world. We first flew a string of courtesy flags because we wanted to dress up for New Year’s Eve in Sydney Harbour, Australia, and couldn’t afford the pre-fab strand of alpha flags and numeric pennants that chandleries sell. But these flags are personal: they represent miles and memories and rich experiences, and we’re very proud to fly them on special occasions. This particular conversation turned out a little differently: “Oh. Ah. I see.” Never had the flags become a conversationstopper! In Puget Sound, there was always an ensign on the transom. I loved the evening ritual of lowering and carefully putting it away at sunset, teaching our children respect for their flag. But
As Jamie and Behan shared last month, the sun is an ever present and ever degrading element in cruising life. Flags are not spared, especially if you only purchase the cheap ones. Great care is taken to preserve them for as long as possible.
return to the States, if we’ve avoided flying a US flag on board or taken other measure to prevent overtly identifying ourselves as Americans. Our rational is entirely different. If we flew a flag all the time, we’d be buying a couple a year, because UV damage is brutal to fabric and I won’t fly a ragged flag. Quality flags aren’t cheap, and shipping them overseas makes it even more expensive; a couple a year adds up. So we try to make each one last, and as a result a flag flies only on special occasions; it’s the same with our club burgees. But it has nothing to do with concern about being identifiable as “The American Boat.” Eight years and more than thirty countries, that’s never The Giffords only use their full courtesy been a problem. flag collection on special occasions.

Besides picking port or starboard spreader halyards, you may want to know the right relative place for a club burgee, the flags of foreign guests or a private signal.

T he S ail maker S essions Why Twist Works By Dan Kaseler, of Quantum Sails Seattle
If you read about sail trim or talk with good sailors, there’s a good chance that you’ve been encouraged to increase the twist in your sails in certain conditions. Many sailors already understand that less twist helps them
point, while increasing twist can be faster and produce a wider groove. For the uniniated, twist means positioning your sails with a tighter angle of attack in the lower part of the sail, while opening up the top portion of the leech
With main sails, this is accomplished by altering the balance between main sheet and the traveler - bringing the traveler further to weather and easing the main sheet slightly. It’s important to twist your headsail to match your twisted main profile. Twisting jibs and genoas typically means moving the fairlead aft, though you could also utilize an inhauler if you have one. So, in many conditions, you should twist. But, why? There are numerous factors that influence why, in certain conditions, sails work better when twisted. We see this phenomenon all the way from the wings of the America’s Cup, to little Opti sails. Let’s take a look at some of the general mechanics at play and talk about how to approach twist to get the most out of your sail trim. Key Definitions True Wind Speed: This is the wind speed measured by a stationary observer at any given point or height. Apparent Wind Speed: This is the wind speed and direction the moving sailor or rig feels while sailing.
Fig. 1 shows a typical example of how True Wind Speed is slowed near the oceans surface.
Fig. 2 shows the corresponding Apparent Wind Speed and direction acting on the rig, highlighting the difference between the head and tack as affected by shear. January 2017 www.48North.com 66
Wind Shear Let’s start with the most common talking point. Sailmakers and scientists agree that one major factor has to do with wind shear, and the boundary layer created by the ocean’s surface. Measurements indicate, especially in choppy conditions, that wind speed is slowed right at the ocean’s surface and increases in velocity with altitude. To understand wind shear, take a moment with the included diagrams, Figure 1, which illustrates shear, and Figure 2. The (A) variable in Figure 2 represents the wind created by the sailor moving forward at a constant velocity. This can be thought of as a headwind always exactly equal and opposite to the direction in which the sailor is traveling. It is the same both at the head and tack. The (B) variable indicates the true wind speed at those same two locations as borrowed from Fig. 1. The vector sum is represented by (C), known as the apparent wind speed. Not only does the sail plan feel stronger
Upwind Twist Guidelines: • In unstable light winds under 6 knots, pull your traveler all the way to the windward side of the track, and work hard to maximize twist. Keep the leech telltails flowing as much as possible, and avoid getting greedy with mainsheet tensions. • In steady breeze around 9 knots, and especially on a smooth sea state, drop you traveler and pull mainsheet hard to close up your twist flow and get good pointing and height out of the boat. Close the twist up enough that the top leech telltail stalls around 60% of the time, if not more. • In lumpy difficult seas, generally increase twist to give yourself a wide forgiving groove to keep the boat rolling and give you the option to steer up, down, and around waves. • As the breeze builds, pull on backstay, to increase twist, thus depowering the rig and moving the sail plan’s center of effort lower to reduce heeling moment.
Downwind Twist Guidelines: • Check leech telltails constantly for stalling. • In light winds use a boom kicker to help the boom rise, thus opening the leech and letting the mainsail breathe. If you don’t have a kicker, a spare halyard can be used to unweight the boom, but you will have to rerig it every time you jibe. • With symmetric boats that typically sail deep angles, in medium breeze a tighter leech is normally ideal. Don’t over do it. It’s normally ideal to have just a little life and bounce to the mainsail leech. • In planing conditions, especially on Asymmetric boats, promote lots of twist through traveler and backstay to reduce drag and make the boat fast and easy to steer.
breeze up high, but the apparent wind direction is also more on the beam! To optimize sail trim, we can conclude quickly that it makes sense to have less angle of attack up high, or in sailing terms, more twist. Wind shear certainly illustrates the difference between gliders that soar in uniform velocity fields, and sailboats that operate in a wind gradient created by the ocean surface, but it is not necessarily the whole story. When comparing wind shear predictions to real world setups, more often than not, we see top sailors using extra twist. One example would be to take a look at the last Melges 24 Worlds in Miami. In general, the seas were bumpy, and total twist flow on the winning boat outpaced expectation, both upwind and down. Let’s go a little deeper into the reasons to twist your sails by looking at some of more elusive performance triggers. Forgiveness Twist might not make you point higher, but it certainly makes a boat easier to sail. In a sense, twisted sails work over a larger range of angles, and at any given time, at least some part of the sail is working. By contrast, a straight-leeched sail will have more on/off characteristics. Further, a twisted sail will reduce power and pitching, often making a boat friendlier. On the pro-sailing circuit, crewmembers and tacticians often talk of setting a boat up with a wider groove for a given owner. These teams are using the same principles (pulling the jib car back and raising the traveler) to the rig’s total twist, thus giving the driver a wider steering range where the boat is performing well. Perhaps momentary speed isn’t ideal, but averaged over a period of time, the net result will be an increase in performance. Gust Response A sail’s ability to deal with a sudden change in pressure is a growing field of study. In my work with windsurfing and small performance boats, it has been repeatedly found that the elasticity of the leech plate has huge performance implications. A sail tuned such that a large gust will pry open the head section at the right moment, www.48North.com
Twisted sails help keep some portion of the sail driving through the waves at the Melges 24 Worlds. Photo by Pierrick Contin courtesy of the US Melges 24 Class. effectively auto-trimming and spilling excessive power will outperform its stiff-leeched counterpart. This subject spans everything from birds making sudden direction changes, to flex-top masts, but the modeling of the dynamic system gets complicated very quickly. The bottom line, a free twisty leech performs better in gusty conditions. Drag Reduction The last topic is to look at the twist puzzle from a drag perspective. It is widely accepted that tip vortex drag creates large performance losses on foils. A quick study of the latest America’s Cup foilers shows an obsession with airtight end plates built atop their tramps. Like windsurfers who look to close the gap, or TP52 sailors who aim to jam the foot of their jibs right on the deck, creating an aerodynamic fence to reduce pressure bleed from the windward side is a point of emphasis. That’s all well and good, but what happens at the top of our rigs? This science is very complicated. Sailing seems to suggest that a flatter twistier profile up high will reduce tip drag, and generally yield a faster setup. Owner of the Quantum Sail loft in Ballard, Dan Kaseler enjoys sailing and racing locally and nationally. Among his achievements are several WSSRC outright speedsailing records, a national title in the Melges 24, and product development for the marine and boardsports markets. 67
Galley Essentials with Amanda “Amelie’s” Crew: Matthew, Mark, Meghan and Marie Claude
When Marie Claude and I met at the 2010 Vancouver Boat Show, she said she was keen to go cruising. Now for several years I’ve been following her blog www. sailingamelie.blogspot.ca and recently had the chance to ask about her galley life. From Marie Claude: I sail with my husband Mark and our children Matthew and Meghan, aboard Amelie, our Amel Super Maramu 53. The freedom and opportunity to travel to places where few people have been, and the slower pace of life attracted me to cruising. It’s also a chance to teach our children and to spend more time together as a family. We’ve just arrived in Brisbane, Australia, having completed three years of sailing from the Caribbean through the Pacific. Before setting out, I was worried about the availability and diversity of provisions and how to keep two hungry teenagers satisfied, healthy and happy. For me, the galley must have storage and be in a central location, so that I’ll be in the middle of all the activity while preparing f o o d . I a l s o re q u i re refrigeration, and I’m in awe of sailors who don’t. Our galley is a large “U-shape” with sinks and counter on one side, long counter on the other and a gimbaled stove at the end.

Rice was soaking in the rice cooker and I’d just poured a cup of tea when a sudden big wave hit us on the side. My rice cooker spilled and a rippling of wet rice and water escaped into every little nook and cranny in the floor. While I stood and watched in horror and my attention turned away from the flour, a second wave hit and flour dust went everywhere and the yeast vaporized. As to my tea? I never got to enjoy it.

o T - Cruise Without Anxiety on a
owGenerator Supported Electric Boat H By Jack and Alex Wilken
Last year, we converted our Yamaha 33 sailboat from diesel to electric propulsion. Since then, we’ve made it a diesel-electric serial hybrid by adding a generator. In recent months, we have gotten some nautical
things, one of which is the difference in fuel density between diesel and lead acid batteries; meaning for the same volume you can store more energy with diesel fuel than with a lead acid battery. Our cruising range got a lot shorter with solely electric propulsion, especially if cruising at the same speed as with diesel. We went from 275 nm with the diesel engine to 30 nm when we were using the original 200 ah hour bank. By increasing the bank to 300 ah, and, more importantly, adding the generator, we actually increased our cruising range by quite a bit in relation to the diesel-only configuration; so anxiety out, tranquility in. The reason that there is no number for how much we increased the cruising range is because every time we stop in a marina and plug in, whether for the night or just a few hours, it is like the fuel tank elves magically fill you up. Another anxiety producer was the availability of diesel over electricity. We felt more secure with our ability to find diesel fuel than electricity. The reality is that 110 ac current is available pretty much at every dock and marina, but for diesel you need to go to a fuel dock or lug jerry cans. We started with the same concerns, like this one, that many people interested in electric propulsion have expressed to us over the years. But, practical experience is beginning to allay them for us. We don’t tend to go to marinas for the night when we cruise in the San Juans. So, with the diesel engine, we had to run our engine almost two

Ludlow to Eagle Harbor is another 31 nm, and then back to and through the locks to Lake Union made the trip a total of 73 nm.

hours each day to accommodate our normal energy usage. At anchor, this was a pain. We could have used less energy and gotten that down to one hour for refrigeration and lights, but I am 72 years old (my wife is, of course, much younger than that) and we like to watch movies or our favorite series. Also, we can increase our cruising time if we take some work, like this article, with us, but that means more energy too. Another result of age and the desire for comfort is that we use electric primary winches. All of these things are important for keeping us on the water and enjoying sailing. In this year’s case study cruiser, we did not have to run the engine or generator at anchor because of the increased battery capacity. We were able to use the propulsion bank to augment the house bank and never missed it because of the increased charge rates we experienced thanks to the dedicated generator. We could run the generator an hour a day when it was least noticeable, at times when we were underway and on deck. There are other times like going in or out of a harbor when your focus is more to the outside things like buoys, channels and other vessels when it is noticed less and therefore even less disquieting. Apart from the night spent plugged in at Shilshole, all our electrical needs on this trip were satisfied by the larger bank, and four hours of running the generator and the propeller re-gen while sailing. The batteries were down by ½ their available amp hours when we arrived home. They were replenished after our trip was over by shore power overnight. As we’ve cruised, we’ve continued to appreciate that we were able to install the generator in someplace convenient, since it no longer needs to be in line with the propeller shaft. We could mount the generator based on access, weight distribution and other conveniences (Figure 2), and we’re happy with our chosen location. There is a battery monitor on the 12vdc bank, giving us the information as to when we need to transfer energy from the 48vdc propulsion bank to the house bank. As you can see from (Figure 3), we had lots of loads to feed, not just propulsion. The electric motor is in both the “charge” and “load”
columns because of the charging that goes on when sailing and the propeller is turning. Since this voyage, we have had many more and the pattern of charging and discharging has been consistent with the trip that we have just recounted. I imagine you get the idea that we are Figure 3: This chart shows the 3 elements we must balance. enthusiastic about The batteries that we used have no memory and can be electric propulsion, charged at their rated amp hour- 300 amps for our bank.

beacons to guide the way through, and over five knots of current (adverse or a push, depending on your timing). We nailed our window and did twelve knots of boat speed over the ground at one point! We arrived in Petersburg just after the tide had changed. We were greeted by the smell of the fish cannery that is central to the town’s economy. Petersburg has a distinct personality, reminiscent of its strong Scandinavian influence. It’s lovely. We had an opportunity to chat with some of the commercial fishermen and quickly gleaned that the fishing season was going rather poorly. Low rainfall levels and warmer temperatures have taken a serious toll on the salmon population, and, in turn, the commercial fishing that supports many small Alaskan towns. We met a man on the dock who had just returned from a good day of fishing, and he gave us a king salmon! That is a sure way to make a couple of voyagers feel welcome, especially two who still hadn’t caught a salmon in Alaska at this point! We saw our first iceberg just outside of Petersburg, and enjoyed a nice view of the Patterson Glacier at our anchorage. Our next destination was Tracy Arm, for a close-up view of the Sawyer Glacier. The trip up Tracy Arm is breathtaking. The fjords tower thousands of feet into the air and plunge deep into the stunning aquamarine glacial runoff. Dodging icebergs was quite exciting – several of them were as big as Corinthian Yacht Club! This was another one of the rare and wonderful sunny days, and the palette of blues were truly amazing. The air grew colder as we approached Sawyer Glacier. We were awed by the magnificence and enormity of it, while somewhat wary because of the recent calving. Dodging icebergs became a bit more daunting at this point. As we made our way out, we discussed concerns that an errant iceberg would find us in our anchorage that night, but our worries were unfounded. A note on anchorages in Alaska... while there are not nearly as many anchoring opportunities here as there are in British Columbia, and it’s certainly not as easy to set an anchor in most of them, it’s well worth the effort to explore. Every place we anchored in 74
Alaska was remote, wild, and gorgeous. Admittedly, we had to be a little creative with anchoring, particularly given the dramatic tidal exchanges, rocky bottoms, and crazy currents, but the rewards were unparalleled. We left our anchorage outside of Tracy Arm in a dense fog that was also a noteworthy and near-constant companion in Alaska. The otherworldly blue glow of the icebergs was magical in the fog – and it also helped us to avoid them! We arrived in Juneau in foggy gloom and rain. Ahh, Alaska! Despite the appeal of the exceedingly long daylight hours of summer, we became fairly certain we are not cut from a sufficiently sturdy cloth to live in Alaska permanently. We made our way to Auke Bay, at the north part of Juneau, to view the Mendenhall Glacier, and then it was time to head south. As soon as we rounded Point Retreat at the top of Admiralty Island we noticed the distinct change in the water. This was ocean water, free of the glacial runoff, cold and clear. We caught our first Alaska salmon, a brilliant chrome coho, just in from the Gulf of Alaska. We anchored in a small bay and caught some dungeness crab. At some point in the first (fishless) half of the Alaska adventure, we had come up with the idea of the “Alaska Turducken of the Sea,” a food fantasy involving a salmon, stuffed with halibut or ling cod, stuffed with crab. With a hollandaise sauce. With the salmon and crab, we were two-thirds of the way there, and were keen to make our idea a reality! With the change in the water, we also noticed a change in the weather. The storm systems begin rolling in off of the North Pacific in the latter half of August and we were treated to some sporty conditions in Chatham Strait. We were wearing winter foulies, sweaters, and knit caps. In the chillist moments, we admit to daydreaming about all of our friends and family back in Seattle, who were undoubtedly enjoying the typical summer heat of August. To stave off our envy, we stopped in Tenakee Springs on Chicagof Island to see about a hot spring. The town of Tenakee Springs is the quintessential remote Alaskan fishing village. There are no cars here, and the natural hot January 2017
springs that are the town’s namesake are in a bathhouse at the center of town. A welcome soak in the springs was soothing, and our next stop was the Baranoff Hot Springs on Baranoff Island. Here, it is possible to hike up to the top of a waterfall to sit in the natural springs, or take advantage of individual bath houses, with pipedin hot spring water, that overlook the falls. We opted for the latter, and found it profoundly relaxing. Later we hiked up to a mountain lake, where we assisted in a rescue of some Texans on a fishing holiday that had flipped an overloaded canoe in the freezing water. That warranted another soak! We chatted with a local commercial fisherman about the dismal salmon season and got some pointers on where to find salmon and how to catch halibut. We continued down the Strait, and per the advice of the fisherman in Baranoff Springs, we fished outside of Port Malmesbury. We landed a beautiful salmon and a ling cod in short order. We anchored inside in one of the most pristine and remote places we had been thus far. Surrounded by old growth forest and the only sounds those of Sandhill cranes and Kingfishers, we were profoundly moved. We prepared the Alaska Turducken of the Sea with great reverence, and it was every bit as excessively, decadently delicious as we hoped. The next day we rounded Cape Decision and went up around Kuiu Island on our way back toward Ketchikan, ready to head for warmer climes. There really is something quite special about Alaska. Words really cannot capture the wild magnificence of it. It’s a long trip from Puget Sound, but the remote beauty is not to be missed. Be sure to leave in May (or sooner if you want to meander through British Columbia) in order to have the best weather. Don’t be afraid to anchor. While initially daunting, exploring hidden anchorages was an absolute highlight. Take a fishing rod and a crab pot, chat with the locals, and don’t miss the hot springs! Fair winds!

The Artist’s View – Secrets of the Salish Sea Sketches and story by Larry Eifert
You might think wind just blows you across the water. While this might be partially correct, there are other forces at work – the same forces that allow birds to fly. Both bird’s wings and your sails are built to the same design. There’s a leading edge where the wind first hits it, then a curve that forces the wind out of its normal pattern. As the wind travels around the curve, it has farther to go, so it travels faster on the wing’s top edge – or the sail’s downwind edge. Just like wind passing over a mountain range, it speeds up, creating less pressure – a vacuum. The bird’s wing, or a sail, is sucked into that vacuum creating forward movement. That’s right, when you tack, you’re sailing into a vacuum.
Birds have developed many ways to help them fly, to adjust their speed, allow them to stall before landing, trim as wind increases, glide, or take off. They even prefer to launch into the wind like a sailor quickly learns. Sailing mimics all this when you reef, flatten, or ease sails to change their shape, spilling wind when things get rough. And just like sailors, birds ‘sails’ wear out, so every year most grow new feathers to replace the ragged ones. Next time you’re at the marina watching the gulls make off with a bag of French fries, notice their wing shapes. Compare them to a good sail. Watch them as they land and notice all the activity that goes on with all those feathers. Boy, I sure wish I could fly!

Corinthian Yacht Club
Turkey Bowl & Laser Districts Wrap up the Season
eattle Corinthian Yacht Club of Seattle’s annual Turkey Bowl serves as its final regatta of the year, and it’s the dinghy sailors that get the honor of wrapping things up in the sometimes chilly air and blustery conditions. This year ’s event, sailed November 1920, wasn’t too chilly and definitely wasn’t blustery. However, good fleets turned out and ended up with some competitive racing. First among those were the Laser fleets, which were holding their District 22 Championships. Buoyed by an young, enthusiastic and very skilled Radial fleet, the Lasers numbered 12 in the standard rig fleet and 14 in the Radial fleet. Other Classes included 505s, I-14s, Stars, Aeros and Optimists. And while it wasn’t a youth regatta, the Opti sailors bundled up and the Radial sailors chatting it up gave Turkey Bowl a younger feel than it’s had in a while. The weekend started appropriately enough with a shore delay. But when the hint of a westerly teased the race committee, the fleets were called out. The Optis and 505s got starts, but the rest of the fleets were stuck twiddling their rudders for a long while. Eventually, two races were sailed in really light conditions. Sunday was much more promising, with winds in the teens at West Point and clearly visible toward the center of the Sound. Alas, the wind didn’t fill in closer to the race course in Shilshole Bay, and was inconsistent when it finally made fleeting appearances. The sailors with their eyes out of the boat were able to manage the puffs and shifts. It was the talented young Radial sailors that grabbed the spotlight in the District 22 Championship. In the full rigs, Blake Bentzen had a www.48North.com
stellar Sunday, showing off what he’s learned in national and international competition over the past couple years. Second, was Jay Leon and third was Seattle Laser Fleet stalwart, Mark Ross. The 17-boat Radial fleet had stellar competition, boding well for the Seattle sailing scene in general. Abbie Carlson squeaked out the win over Owen Timms and Talia Toland. It will be fun to watch this Radial fleet’s exploits in the coming years. There was a familiar name atop the Aero fleet, though not one usually associated with an Aero. It was Carl Buchan’s first Aero regatta, and he won with nearly straight bullets. Second place Derek Bottles managed to edge him out one race. In third was David Brink. Nine boats competed in the 505 fleet, which has undergone a definite resurgence the last couple of years, highlighted by an excellent North Americans earlier this year. Angus Bracket won by only a point over Dalton Bergan and six points over Mats Elf. Chris Freye and Derek DeCourteau won the I-14 and Star fleets, respectively. DeCourteau ended up match racing Dave Watt in the Stars. In the Opti fleet, it was the unbeatable Dieter Creitz dominating with straight bullets. His time at traveling regattas, plus experience on Shilshole Bay, are impressive and it’s clear he has a brilliant sailing future ahead of him. Second was Sammy Farkas and third was Alex Zaputil. Optis remain the fleet of choice the world over, and both in the US and particularly Europe, major regattas draw many hundreds of boats. It’s great to see active fleets here in the Northwest. by Kurt Hoehne results on page 82 79

decision proved correct as the winds were being recorded at 31 knots, by 4:00 at 35 knots and finally at 5:00 at 38 knots. All ferry services were cancelled for the evening. The Opti Green fleet remained in the club carving pumpkins and model boat building. During the evening meal, we were all entertained by storm action in the yacht basin. The club provided the evening meal for over 200 people and the after dinner entertainment was provided by Mike Harrington in the form of â€œRiddles and Math Problemsâ€? for the older sailors.

Special thanks should go to those from Seattle and Alberta. For the Alberta people, the regatta provided a contrast to sailing in the prairies. The event organizers did an outstanding job in working with the challenging conditions. Without volunteers, the regatta could not have been a success. It would be impossible to run a regatta of this size without the assistance of groups willing to sponsor us.

Since its introduction in 1993, the Melges 24 class has always boasted highly competitive regattas that attract excellent sailors from both Corinthian and professional ranks. The 72 boats that attended the recent World Championships in Miami, FL, exemplify this high quality of sailors and sailing. Plainly put, the fleet was stacked, and included many of the Pacific Northwest’s top sailors, including Jonathan McKee, Jeff Madrigali, Ian Sloan, and Matt Pistay. Matt stopped by 48°N Headquarters after the event to give us the full download. “I was sailing my boat, #547, which I had chartered to New Jersey sailor, John Brown, and his Blind Squirrel team,” says Matt. “We had sailed together three times in 2016 to prepare for this event, at Key West Race Week (which we won), another Miami event in the spring, and the Melges 24 Nationals at Lake Geneva, WI. We had things pretty dialed, but we made some adjustments to crew duties right before worlds. The other pro on the boat, Kevin Jewett, was the strategist and tactician, and I was responsible for boat speed, sail trim, and boat-on-boat tactics.” The first thing Matt told me about the regatta is how much fun everyone had sailing the boat in the ocean. The conditions were uniquely Miami, with warm breeze ranging from 6-22 knots. Even with light wind, the water was never flat. He said, “Even in marginal planing conditions the waves allowed for long surf rides. You could get a ton of separation by surfing better than the next boat. On our boat, the driver and spinnaker trimmer stayed seated on the downwind legs, while the other three of us tried to steer the boat with our weight. When we’d start to get on a wave, we’d run forward to try to catch it.” He also noted how the waves played in to upwind trim and boat handling. He said, “there was typically a good tack and a bad tack, given the wave direction. So, the upwind modes were really different. On the good tack, we were sailing a normal VMG point mode. But on the bad-wave-tack, we were really bow down in fast forward mode. We were doing seven knots through the water
Melges 24 Worlds
Photo by Pierrick Contin courtesy of US Melges 24 Class Association in that mode. We were playing the outhaul a lot, we’d ease it off to point higher and flatten when we needed speed. We were really twisting our sails too, and all the top boats were using more tension on our lower shrouds than normal.” In a fleet that big, the starts were truly key. Getting off the line clean lyand with a lane was super important, but being on the correct end of the line was too, because the start line was half a mile long. The starts and wave conditions did create a lot of separation throughout the fleet, but there were good battles all the way through the fleet. Matt told me, “The top 20-25 boats were really tight, finishing pretty much every race within 3-5 minutes of one another. There were bigger gaps from there, but everybody had someone to sail against, and I think all the boats had an awesome time.” The newly crowned M24 World Champion is Conor Clarke’s Embarr from Ireland. They won the regatta going away. I asked Matt why Embarr was so fast. He said, “Well to start with, they had the members of the US Men’s Olympic 470 team driving and calling tactics! They spent a lot of time in the boat preparing for the regatta, and the 470 guys spend so much time training in Miami, they know the venue like the back of their hands. I will say, however, that they www.48North.com
were really aggressively using dinghy techniques even though it’s a keel boat. It’s becoming more prevalent throughout the fleet, but they were throwing the boat around, sailing dynamically in the waves, steering with their weight and with the helm. I’d say more than the others, and it was obviously working.” While first place was decided early, the rest of the podium was up for grabs right to the very end, with the Italian team, Maidollis 3, taking second and Full Throttle from Wisconsin finishing third. Jonathan McKee was calling tactics for another Olympian, Bora Gulari, who competed in Rio on the Nacra 17. Their team, West Marine Rigging, had a podium spot until they unfortunately got a Black Flag penalty in the last race and dropped to fifth. Matt’s Blind Squirrel team ended seventh. Several boats from our region were sailing: Kevin Welch’s Mikey, based in Anacortes, finished 16th. Duncan Stamper ’s Goes to Eleven, based in Victoria, BC, finished 39th, and Brian Tyrell’s Scruffy, based in Benton City, WA, finished 60th.

Puget Sound Race Results
Vendée Globe Day 40 Race Report: As I write this, the fleet of 29 starters has been whittled down to 21 men who are battling their way through the Southern Ocean spread out over 6,500 miles between South Africa and the date line east of New Zealand. In the lead is Armel Le Cléac’h, 5000 miles ahead of Brit Alex Thomson who is 865 miles ahead of third place (Jérémie Beyou). This is not a surprise, both men were clear favorites before the start - Le Cléac’h, having finished second in 2008-9 and 2012-13, with Thomson in third last time around. The first three are all racing foil-assisted 60' yachts - a new development for Vendée Globe 16-17. However, Thomson's Class 60 Hugo Boss is seriously handicapped by a broken foil. He was in the lead on Day 13 when he hit something while sailing at 24 knots - just after logging a record 531 miles in 24 hours. With the starboard foil no longer functional, he has been slower than Banque Populaire when reaching in a strong breeze and going to windward. In the early stage of the race, from France south to the equator, a dozen skippers managed to keep up the pace, with the rest having smaller budgets, older boats and more concern for preserving their gear for the long haul. But for the leaders and their corporate sponsors, the chance to win the greatest prize in singlehanded sailing meant pushing these carbon fiber foiling machines to the absolute limit. The speed of the newest boats was clearly demonstrated when the first three boats passed close to the Kerguelen Islands—the remote French territory between South Africa and Australia. The French Navy had a frigate in the area that sent its helicopter up to get a closer look. The video showed the incredible sight of these 60 footers rail down under reefed mains and reaching jibs making 20 knots while the skipper casually waved to the aircrew. It was the kind of performance you might hope to see in Washington once a year when a squall blew through a big boat regatta—but these guys were going around the world at this pace. That is why the first four boats are on schedule to break the

photo courtesy of Vendee Globe mythical 80-day barrier - if they can keep their rig together. One of them is a non-foiler in fourth place on the winning yacht from the last race. So far only one mast has broken—forcing Kojiro Shiraishi, the first Japanese entrant out. With 2/3 of the rig still standing he was still able to set plenty of sail to steer east to Capetown. Higher Speeds Means More Risk from Flotsam All six sailors with foiling boats can pull them back into their slots to stop them pounding, but beyond that, there is no way to repair or replace them. Sebastian Josse was forced to retire when, in third place, his foil was slammed in a wave trough and broke its internal housing sleeve. This was fairly predictable, but the other five retirements were all caused by broken rudders and damage to the canting keel hinge-pin and frames. The fleet’s kick-up rudders have reached a high level of sophistication and the keel fins are now all solid steel—so this does suggest that at the higher average speeds and growing amount of flotsam in the oceans, there is no way these lightweight hulls can withstand the shock of impact. This was brought home by Kito de Pavant, who has now failed to finish three consecutive Vendée Globes. The first two were near the start and close to Europe, the third was in the deep south, but fortunately near the Kerguelen Island where another www.48North.com
French ship, this time a supply vessel, plucked him from his boat as water was rising in the cabin! More skippers we are following are: Nandor Fa - 11th, age 63: Spirit of Hungary (4120 miles to leader). The indefatigable Hungarian skipper, who designed and built his boat for the Vendée—for the second time. Conrad Coleman - 12th, age 33: Foresight Natural Energy (4567 miles to leader). Originally from New Zealand, Conrad grew up in a family of keen sailors. At the age of 15, he moved to the States, where he studied economics, before setting up his own firm making titanium bikes. In late 2008, he moved to Lorient, where he still lives today. He discovered solo ocean racing through the Mini Transat. In the following year, he tackled the Route du Rhum in Class40 then stayed with the class in the Global Ocean Race, the double-handed race around the world with stopovers. He won four out of the five legs and was the overall winner. Rich Wilson - 17th, age 66: Great American IV (5019 miles to leader). At the age of 58, he was the oldest competitor in the 2008-2009 Vendée Globe. Aboard an older boat, launched ten years before the race, he fought hard to overcome the gales and some serious damage. He reached les Sables d’Olonne in 9th place after 121 days. by Peter Marsh 83

swiftsure yachts The logbook for January 2017 A ketch or a sloop? Which will you choose? Swiftsure Yachts presents two Olle Enderleindesigned Hallberg-Rassy 42s: Ostinato, a sloop rigged version and Angele, a ketch. Angele, formerly owned by John Neal and Amanda Swan-Neal of Mahina Expeditions, sailed to Antarctica and around Cape Horn and is well-equipped for long distance cruising. Ostinato has spent 18 of the past 24 summers in Alaska, returning to Puget Sound for the winter and stored under full boat cover. Rugged construction and respectable passage speeds (long waterline and ample sail area) make these yachts popular world cruisers – many have circumnavigated. They offer plenty of interior volume with nicely balanced storage and living space, and her low center cockpit provides great protection behind a hard dodger. Rugged, capable, and elegant, these sought after HallbergRassy yachts are favorites. Which will you choose?
Angele 1983 HR 42E $174,000
Ostinato 1986 HR 42E $225,000
