MARCH 2019

EST. 1913

From the Commodore Happy March! With Daylight Savings time being March 10th, we soon enough will be experiencing longer days around our wonderful club, and the start of the Beer Can Race Series on April 10th.

Commodore Tom Lyons

On February 16th, we held the Buona Forchetta and Barbera by the Bay club event. Buona Forchetta generously donating the pizza for the event. Proceeds will be donated and split evenly between Coronado School’s Foundation and Coronado Yacht Club’s Junior Program. We had Italian wines to taste as well, to go with the pizza, thanks to our wine vendors. The event was family friendly as well. We showed Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs in the clubhouse and had the Jumpee up for the kids. The event sold out at 200 people. There is always something going on at our fun club! We will have a Lobster Night on March 6th and Prime Rib Night on March 13th, and Italian Buffet Night on March 20th. The NOOD Regatta will take place March 14th – 17th; this is always a fun weekend to be around the club. Trivia Night will take place on March 19th, and Bingo Night will take place on March 20th. Future plans for club festivities including Opening Day, 4th of July are ongoing and specifics are coming together.

I’ve met with Austin, President of MarineSync, to establish the ability and protocols for members to be able to review their electrical usage by signing onto the MarineSync website. Members will be able to opt-in by providing the front office with their slip number, email address and phone number. CYC staff will then register this information into system and provide members the viewing access to their data by slip. We kick off our busy regatta season at CYC this month. Between March 15 th through March 17th, we will be co-hosting the NOOD Regatta with San Diego Yacht Club, followed by the 29er Midwinters West the following weekend of March 22 th through 24th. The CYC parking lot will be impacted during these regattas as we accommodate the 60+ boat trailers to support the regatta and visiting racers. On Friday, March 15 th, we will be hosting the NOOD racing participants and sponsors’ Happy Hour party on the CYC side lawn. Tickets are available for purchase for this event from the NOOD registration table. The side lawn BBQ grills and children’s bounce house will not be available on the 15th as we will be using the lawn area to host this event.

Waves and Words By Chaplain Gary Boggs

M

arch is upon us and we all look forward to the end of a very “wet” winter in our little corner of the country. The daylight hours are increasing and before too long “Spring” will be here with great anticipation of warmer temperatures and the sense of a new season of the cycle of life. It’s a time for renewal as nature begins to shake off winter and everything around us begins to burst forth with new life. My thoughts and prayers for everyone at CYC turn to expectations of another wonderful season around our club. We are indeed blessed to have what we have here! Before we blink our eyes, things around the club will begin gearing up for another season of doing what we all love, being on and around the water. Sailors are looking forward to “Beer Can” races starting up again and preparations for “Opening Day” will be under way soon. I look forward to another season of great times and new memories to be made. Time marches on and yes life is too short to waste any of the precious days we have! In however many days any of us have left, let’s choose to be joyful in everything we do! As we set our course on the new season ahead, please know that my thoughts and prayers for blessings in the everyday things of life continue for one and all. There are prayers for strength and patience in the tough times of life also. Be glad to be alive and do your best to spread a little joy into the lives of others. Here’s a quote that always reminds me how to live and where to put my trust. It’s in the book of Psalms, 37:3-4: “Trust in the Lord and do good; Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness. Delight yourself also in Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart.” Look for a reason to have hope and joy in your life. I know my reason, do you know yours? As always; “Be kind to one another, take care of one another, and love one another! May you have fair winds and following seas…” Chaplain, out. Page 55


Rod and Reel Report By Rod and Reel Chairman S/C Paul Dodson

A

special thanks to Shelly Bucklew, owner of San Diego Marine Exchange for providing Rod and Reel with the 2019 Tide Books. Should you desire to obtain a current tide book just call Paul Dodson at 619-993-3943 and he will see that you receive one. Thank you, Shelly, for all of tour support over the years. Rod and Reel appreciates all your assistance. The Annual Fred Hall Boat and Fishing show is scheduled for March 28th – 31st, 2019, to be held at the Del Mar Fair Grounds. Kids 15 and under get in for free. The Fred Hall Show covers all aspects of fishing and is a real family event. If you have questions, the show will have the answers and you will have a great time. Don’t miss out - see you there. Last month, I addressed the lack of fish being recorded. Well, Flag Member Al Thomas climbed aboard his boat “R Boat” and on January 28th, he landed a 5 lb. halibut. Then on January 30th, he again returned to his secret location on San Diego Bay and landed a 5 ½ lb. halibut. Congratulations Al, it gives me something to write about. Due to the weather systems we have had for the last two months, our anglers have been very selective as they decided weather to go fishing or to wait for the weather to improve – like summer time. Recently, I took note of an article in the January 25th – February 7th, 2019 log. “California Sport Fishing League encourages early fishing participation.” Reportedly, according to a national survey, the number of diehard anglers is getting older and declining in numbers faster than the rate of new anglers. Something to think about. The California Ocean Sport Fishing Regulations Booklet has a single page devoted to non-take species, Take and Possession of the following species is not allowed: Giant sea bass, garibaldi, rockfish, yelloweye rockfish, cowcod and bronzespotted rockfish. And there is a very strict limit on the following species: Statewide bag limit of three fish on bocaccio and a state-wide bag limit of five fish on black rockfish. Winter months are a prime time to hook any of the above fish, as winter time lends itself to bottom fishing due to the lack of surface fishing. It is further recommended that all anglers obtain a California Ocean Sport Fishing Regulation Booklet yearly, as many regulations change year – to – year. Most tackle shop have the booklets available.

Cruiser Navigation Report By Dave Weimer

W

ow! Talk about the Luck of the Irish.

Our CYC hosted cruiser navigation contest was held on Saturday, February 23, under clear sunny skies, and gentle southwest breezes… This weather was just a welcome, and lucky respite from the cold and rain we have been experiencing since the beginning of 2019, and was enjoyed by all the contestants. The course, written by your scribe, began at bridge pier “20” and headed north to the Navy mooring buoy “19” just off the east end of Harbor Island for the first timed “Mark.” The next timed legs led to red channel buoy “20” and returned to green channel buoy “21” for the second “Mark.” The course then led south to the bridge for the third “Mark” and further south to red channel buoy “36” for the fourth “Mark.” After this straightforward course, the last two timed legs were the challenge. Beginning at red channel buoy “36” we programmed a timed nautical mile run to a blind point towards the diamond marker on the Silver Strand, followed by a course north towards red channel buoy “26” where the Mark was called when aligned with the south side of Navy Pier “1.” This was followed by a little navigational fun by turning towards the red channel buoy “26A” and doing a “U” turn to starboard when abeam of the buoy to port. The final leg was to the finish at bridge pier “18.” The flood currents for the morning turned out to be the decisive factor in the scores. Contestants who adjusted their throttles for the weaker than predicted currents did well. Others, not so well, including your scribe. When the scores were announced, following a great “dogs and burgers” luncheon at our Club, all but two of the top scores were 1 percent error or greater. And our winner from last month, Jeff Calabrese, continued his winning ways with a 0.88 percent error, earning him second place overall and the Adm. Robert Erly Perpetual Trophy Award... Congratulations again Jeff! Magnus Karlsson was not far behind Jeff with a 1.1 percent error, capturing fourth place. Congratulations Magnus! Next month’s rally, sponsored by Silver Gate Yacht Club, is just two weeks away on March 9. We’ll scramble to improve our scores and will report the results in the next issue. The continuing and combined efforts to recruit new cruiser navigators are beginning to show results, with three new members from Silver Gate YC and one new member from SWYC joining the San Diego Cruiser Association. The really good news is that we have some of our own CYC skippers also interested in joining the fun and camaraderie on the water. Hopefully we’ll see some more Crown burgees on the water in the near future. If you own and cruise a mid-sized power boat, consider learning about cruiser navigation contests by joining one of us on board for a “test” run. There is nothing to lose, and based on my personal experience, much to gain in both knowledge of your boat, confidence in your boat handling, and enjoyment of the camaraderie amongst our Skippers. To get started, any one of us will be more than willing to guide you step by step as you enter into this fascinating sport.

F

ebruary was a quiet month at the club. Members came down to enjoy possibly one of the most low scoring Superbowl games in history. There were two “Bands in the Bar” Fridays including local favorite “In Midlife Crisis” and a new jazz duo, Steph Johnson and Rob Thorsen. It was nice to listen to some relaxing jazz music on one of the many chilly nights we’ve had this past month. The Family Friendly Wine Tasting party on Saturday, February 16th was a hit! We raised a lot of money for the Junior Sailing Program and Coronado Schools Foundation. Buona Forchetta restaurant donated all the food for the event including a surprise Cotton Candy treat made on-site for the kids. It brought joy to my heart to see the kids skipping off with their fluffy treats to go grab a cozy seat to watch the featured movie “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs.” Each guest received a gourmet pizza made on-site and some delicious meatballs. Thank you to our suppliers for coming down to pour some carefully selected Italian wines for tasting in the main dining room. All the wines were delicious! This was the first event at the club for me where children mingled comfortably throughout the interior of the club. It seemed to me that all members in attendance enjoyed themselves thoroughly. We love our littlest members and I hope that these types of events will help to ingrain positive yacht club memories in their little minds. Looking ahead, March will be a busy month at the club with the NOOD Regatta and therefore we won’t have any special member events planned. There will be another Bingo Night on March 20th and a special brunch buffet on March 17th. With the daylight savings coming up and Spring on the horizon, we hope to see you all down at the club enjoying our beautiful waterfront space.

s you are reading this article, our first CYC raft up of 2019 is underway at La Playa Anchorage. I will spill the beans, I mean give the details, in the next Whisker Pole for everyone who was unable to attend. The next scheduled raft up for April 26th through 28th was initially planned for Coronado Cays Basin, but we have changed the location to String Ray Point so we'll be available for the KMAC Challenged Sailors Race that same weekend in Glorietta Bay. So don't worry, you will not miss cheering the racers on or attending the after party Saturday if you are rafted-up. Love Boat Captains will be Jill Powell and myself and we look forward to hosting a great weekend with the rain (hopefully) in the very distant rear view mirror. Don't forget to get your free permit from the Port of San Diego: http://reservations.portofsandiego.org/boating/. Please sign up for each raft up in the Blue Book at the CYC front desk. We are still looking for Cruise Fleet “Love Boat” Captains for our raft up August 2nd through 4th and a Catalina excursion. Hope all you sailors are as excited for the upcoming season as I am; Opening Day Weekend is right around the corner... Get Nauti, Jackie oskibusch@gmail.com 619.518.6794

From the Jr. Clubhouse By Jr. Sailing Director Jill Powell

I

cannot believe we are in March already. Spring is here although you cannot tell! Spring sailing has started and now I’m planning summer camp. I will have the summer schedule up by March 15th for members and will open up to non-members on April 1st. The CYC Juniors are planning its big Casino Night Fundraiser for May 4th. If you would like to sponsor a table, let me know. We have Casino Night every other year! Thank you to all that supported the Junior/CHSST BBQ dinner and big thank you to Buona Forchetta for a family-fun event that raised money for the Juniors and the Coronado School Foundation. I cannot forget all the moms that helped me in the kitchen and to the Junior board that helped at the pizza event. Last month, Preston Miller went to sailing in Florida. This is what he had to say about his trip: “My experience in St. Petersburg was very enjoyable. My host family was great. They gave me an amazing place to sleep. They took me to some very good restaurants like Three Birds Tavern or the delicious home style diner known as their kitchen. The family was wonderful. Alex and Andre were great to hang out with and their parents were really sweet and funny. The very early wake up time plus the jet lag didn’t make for a good morning, but the regatta venue was very nice. Sailing an Opti for the first time was a great experience. I expected the water to be nice. Boy was I wrong. It felt like I was still in San Diego. In the end I want to go back to St. Petersburg and sail more with Alex and gang.” Congratulations: To… Tommy Rudowicz, Madi Anderson, Max Olson, Stella Taherian, Chris Ross, Taylor Werth for a great performance at Mid Winters, NHYC Pictured: CYC Junior member Preston Miller on the far left

oronado Yacht Club and Challenged Sailors San Diego will be holding the Fifth Annual Kyle C. c emorial Regatta on

LTJG Kyle C. McArthur, son of Jamie McArthur, was an avid sailor and all-around athlete. He was a member of the sailing and lacrosse teams at the Naval Academy. Kyle was trained as a Naval Aviator who passed away in 2013. This year’s regatta will feature two different fleets— eight Martin 16 sailboats, specifically designed for adaptive sailing, featuring sailors from the San Diego area. Bay Area Association of Disabled Sailing, BAADS, will be bringing six Hansa 303 adaptive sailing boats to compete this year. In the evening, following the first day of sailing, there will be the 2nd Annual Club Championship for CYC members. Dinner and a silent auction/raffle will begin at 6 p.m. Mid-Life Crisis will be playing music during this event. Last year we raised just over $10,000 at this event. Our goal this year is to raise enough funds to replace one of our Martin 16 sailboats. We invite you to join us anytime this weekend, viewing the regatta, volunteering, or the dinner event. Contact Jamie McArthur, Sail Fleet Captain, or Challenged Sailors at www.challengedsailors.org for more information. See flyer on next page

those days, my memory says his cost to join was $10 and monthly dues were $10 which I am finding it hard to believe today.

The Formation of CYC’s Jr. Sailing by Charlie Allen Long Time Flag Member and Staff Commodore At first, we were 3. “Baines” Haines, Bob Phillips, and me. The year was 1947. Our new clubhouse, a former wave barracks on 1st street, was the focus of the yacht club’s attention. For us Junior Members, it was the start of Junior Yacht Club activities. Three trophies were donated and raced for and are still raced for 73 years later. Thus it was that Baines was one of my 1st friends here at the Club and we enjoyed the competition of our Junior Races. Baines passed over the bar a few weeks ago and I wish him Bon Voyage and my sincerest condolences to his family. He will be missed… The occasion reminds me of those sweet days.

The club had acquired a surplus Wave Barracks from 1st street and got city land at the head of Glorietta Bay. A pad had been poured and the barge transfer completed. We met members first with weekly member work parties to finish the clubhouse for an Opening Day at the end of May. Coincidentally, the Junior Program was activated for sail racing. Three trophies were activated and are still awarded every year. They are “Seven-Up Cup”, donors Elmer Muhl & 7-Up. “The Uncle Bill Junior Yacht Trophy”. Donor Uncle Bill was a perfect gentleman, did club’s Race Committee for many years and was Marion Niemyer’s father. Marion was wife to Bob Niemyer, Coronado Ferry engineer and both were close friends for many years. In 1950, Bob and I drove back to Buffalo, N.Y. for the Lightning Championship and crewed for Myron Eyestone from LA, a close friend. This was our first 50+ boat race. My memory says we finished about 12th against the “big” boys. I did not know it at the time, but Bob and Marion had married days before the trip and was later teased for taking his “honeymoon” trip. I got a ride from one of the southern crews to my new home at Duke University. The 3rd trophy was the “Jr. Commodore Corinthian Award”, donated by Bob Phillips. Within a year or two, the Naples Sabot became very popular all over Southern California. Our Junior training boat started in our club by my best friend “Bee” Kempff who announced one day he had bought “us” a boat. How much I inquired? “$100”, he replied and I said, “Okay, $50 sounds like a deal for me”, except it is a one-man boat and there are 2 of us. He then said, “We can trade off”. It was not long until we had a second sabot.

In early 1947, my father, Admiral Charles Allen, asked me what I wanted for a High School graduation present to which I replied, “a racing sailboat”. He said that’s a pretty big wish but I’ll look into it. So by June, he had bought us a racing boat, the Star 616 from a club member. He also joined the club and I automatically became a junior member at no cost. In
