2007 Master Mariners Annual Regatta This year we had good winds to carry us around every mark and as a result there were close finishes in many of the divisions. 75 of the 80 boats that entered started the race and only four failed to cross the finish line. There were no protests, no collisions, and no dismastings but there was one unfortunate sinking. A jibe around Southhamton Shoal caused NUOVO MONDO, the small felucca, to swamp and go down. Fortunately everyone aboard was picked up safely and the boat was later raised; she will live to sail another day! Otherwise there were just the usual bumps and bruises to humans and yachts that come with competitive sailing. Many thanks go to Jay Rigler, the Sausalito YC Race Chairman, Jeff Zarwell our U.S. Sailing Race Official and the crew of the Mercury from Sausalito YC who helped us record the starts and finishes. Special thanks go to Dick Wrenn and Chris Newell, both MMBA members, who were on the committee boat and helped identify the many vessels and tabulate the race results. There were many other members that volunteered their time and efforts to ensure we had another great regatta and my sincere thanks go out to them. We had twelve divisions this year. Eight Bear Boats, up from six the year before, went out as a fleet with ALMA at noon. The Bears started a come back last year and we hope to see ten out there next year. Six Bird Boats entered the race ensuring they had their own division. Unfortunately one started taking on water at the dock and could not start – there’s always next year. The four L-36s started together as a nonspinnaker division to make for more evenhanded competition. There were four Marconi and three Gaff divisions along with the Ocean Class and Big Schooner. The Marconi IV yacht KAERESTA was the first Folkboat to have raced in the Regatta and we had the good fortune to have LYNX the magnificent topsail schooner in the race and we hope to see her again next year. I counted 19 new members entered in the race and many did quite well; congratulations and welcome. As in the past the raft-up at the Encinal YC was a colorful fun event that began with a lively jazz band greeting yachts as they came in. From the feedback I received the food was terrific – let’s all hope the Encinal can hold on to their new chef – and the rock ’n roll band got everyone up and dancing. The Awards Ceremony started with another glitch in the sound system – we’ ll have to get it tested beforehand next year – but that did not seem to bother our young sponsored sailor Joel Crow. Joel was given financial assistance by our Foundation last year and he got up to thank all of us and describe his rewarding experience aboard the LADY WASHINGTON and LYNX. First place winners collected their strutting cock flags and were given magnum bottles of Cabernet Sauvignon donated by Ted Hall of Long Meadow Ranch Winery. Skippers and crew that stayed overnight at the dock enjoyed breakfast at the Encinal and a potluck BBQ Sunday afternoon. This year’s potluck was a great success with 35 to 40 participating. Many thanks to Encinal YC for their hospitality over the Memorial Day weekend. Photo by Steve Sarsfield, sunda

The Shellback, June 2007, Pg. 1


From the Quarterdeck Another great Memorial Day Regatta has come and gone. Good racing conditions, plenty of action, the added fun of having Lynx join us, etc. The weather at Encinal could have been a bit better, but a good time was had by all. I once again remind you that we owe a debt of gratitude to many people for this great event: • John & Carla Vincent – our Race Chairman • Dick Wrenn & Chris Newell – on the Committee Boat • John & Anne Tucker – for managing the trophies • Ariane Paul – for Sponsor Relations • St. Francis YC – for the Sponsors’ Luncheon • Sausalito YC – for the Committee Boat & Race Officials • Encinal YC – for our Sail-in and Awards Dinner • And of course, all of our Sponsors ! I have a concern that I want to relate to the membership: We must as a group, do better when registering for events like the Regatta and the upcoming Wooden Boat Show. All of the time and

energy to make these events such a success is put forward by volunteers. This year we had a wonderful, record turn-out of 80 vessels, which is just great ! The deadline for registering was May 10. On the tenth we had 51 boats registered and we ended up with 80 ! Over a third of the participants, came in late. Can you imagine the work involved in handling 80 vessels, putting them in 12 divisions, doing the required handicapping, working-out the start times for 80 vessels on 5 minute rolling starts, publishing the sailing instructions and start-times, etc.,etc. This is a monumental task, and I hope that each of you will remember this in future, and be kind to the volunteers who do the work for us all. At the moment, we have 18 boats registered for the Annual Wooden Boat Show, we usually total about 50-55 and the show is only 3 weeks away. Details are to be found on Page 8 Are you Coming??

2007 MMBA Sponsors As you can see from the following list, we had a great deal of support from sponsors both old and new, 50 in total. Several moved up to both the Corporate and Benefactor levels, and all that I spoke with are very happy to help Master Mariners. In the past few years I have been utilizing several sponsor companies services myself and make a habit of referring friends to these companies as well, and I hope the membership at large will do the same. It was exciting to see the overall increase of race participants and sponsors, and the lunch at the St. Francis YC was a full house. I am going to work on trying to keep better track of the sponsor flags. After the boat show, please make certain to either return the flag of your vessel's sponsor back to the company and let me know, or to me and I will take care of it. The others on the sponsorship committee gave me a great deal of help my first year out, Peter English, Terry Klaus, Frank and Mary Hoburg. I was especially delighted to see the beautiful tidebooks that Frank donated with one of Caleb Whitbeck's paintings - I plan to put mine in a frame. A big cheer to all our sponsors, thanks again!
