The Island City

Table of Contents

Alameda is a community of stately homes, excellent shopping and fine restaurants.A quiet and unique island city located in San Francisco Bay, Ala meda isthe center of pleasure boating in Northern California. Originally a peninsula covered with oak trees and inhabited by peaceful Indians, Alameda was partof a Spanish grantto LuisPeralta in the early1880's. Ittook the Gold Rushto start real growth, however. In the 1850's,many of the trees covering the Island were cut and used to build the City of San Francisco, while atthe same time, Alameda's farms fed the great population influx brought by the rush for gOld. By the 1870's and 1880's, many of the San Francisco's newly wealthy were establishing fine Victorian homes in the town, and Alameda acquired a reputation as an excellent residential area, one that stands today. Alameda's history has always been closely linked with the sea. Thetown played a major role in the growth of West Coast Maritime industries, primarily in ship building, outfitting and repairs. TheAlaska Salmon Fleet (the largest in the world at the time) had its winter port here. Alameda became a true "island" in 1902 with the opening of the Tidal Canal. The Canal made the Island circumnavigable.

Alameda long has been known as one of the better residential areas of the Bay Area. Lovely homes, complimented by fine sandy beaches and a large assortment of parks, combined with several excellent shopping centers and areas, make the town a desirable location in which to live. Residents(and many visitorsas well) are familiar with the number of outstanding restaurants, many of which are located over the water along the Oakland I Alameda Estuary.Seafoods of all kinds are a major bill of fare since the town is a natural water oriented community. Located 12 miles east of San Francisco and 420 miles north of LosAngeles, Alameda is separated from the EastBay Area by the Estuary.Withthewestside of the Island bordering the Bay, the San Francisco skyline is clearly visible, and some spectacular sunsets may be viewed from Ala meda beaches when the sun sets behind the skyscrapers of the "Manhattan of the West." Withseveral excellent motels, Alameda isfully equipped to accommodate the visitor. Some accommodations are adjacentto dockage forthe many people who come to the Island by boat.

THE FIRST TRANSP ACIFIC RACE The Transpacific Race, the famous biennial event from Los Angeles to Honolulu, was originally planned to be started from San Francisco, and, strangely enough, one of the three yachts in that first race in 1906 reached Kauai before going on to Honolulu. The founder of the Transpac was Clarence W. MacFarlane of Honolulu, a yachtsman so enthusiastic that he was called the "Lipton of Hawaii."

Coast Yacht Club, a predecessor of the present Los Angeles Yacht Club. Another was the 112-foot schooner, ANEMONE,belonging to Charles Tuttof Colorado Springs, a member of the New York Yacht Club. Thethree began their 2,400-mile race from San Pedro on June 11,1906. After fifteen days at sea, MacFarlane found himself looking in vain for Diamond Head. Mosher, the navigator, suggested darkly that perhaps the Hawaiian Islands had sunk. All of them had been formed upon a range of volcanic mountains, remember. MacFarlane was just about to turn around and head for California when Jimmy Grube sighted Kealia harbor in Kauai. LAPALOMAwas only Slightly off course. LURLINE,completing the passage in twelve days, nine hours and fifty-nine minutes, won the race. ANEMONEtook one day longer and was second. LA PALOMAwas last.

He was often seen sailing around Honolulu harbor with King Kalakaua, the islands' last monarch, or Governor Sanford Dole as his guest. MacFarlane hit upon the idea of inviting the San Francisco fleet to race to the islands, a proposal that had been tossed aboutas early as 1883.Therewas no difficulty in sailing downwind to Hawaii, pushed by the gentle trade winds, but the West Coast yachtsmen wondered how long it would take them to beat ther way home after such a race. MacFarlane decided he had to prove that the west-east trip was not so difficult. He planned to sail his yacht, LA PALOMA,to San Francisco, and once he had proved his point, he felt sure that a transpacific race would follow. LA PALOMAleft Honolulu on April 14,1906.Aboard were MacFarlane; Mosher, a navigator from the steamships; Spinnine, an Irishfirstmate, Pangelly, the Spanish cook; and two deck hands - a Samoan named Bill, and a Hawaiian lad named Jimmy Grube. The trip took a month. On May 15,LA PALOMA tied up at Meiggs Wharf. There were no boats in the harbor, not even the ever-present fishing boats. No carriages were in sight, nor any streetcars. Army tents were up at the Presidio..The crew took no particular notice. The port physician, Dr. Hobson, came by and while clearing the vessel he said to MacFarlane, "Where do you plan to stay, Clarence?" The skipper was tired and salt-encrusted after his long voyage. He replied, "I think I'll go to the Occidental Hotel, take a hot bath, eat a steak, and go to sleep." The doctor was taken aback. He told MacFarlane, "You'll go a hell of a long way to find the Occidental Hotel." It was then that the crew of LA PALOMA learned of the San Francisco earthquake and fire which had struck the city four days after their ship left Honolulu.

MacFarlane was not easily discouraged. Realizing that it was a bad time to promote anything but the Red Cross in San Francisco, he sailed down to San Pedro, the harbor town for Los Angeles. There he found two takers for his race. One was LURLINE, an 80-foot keel schooner originally built in San Francisco by Wallace Turnerfor the sons of the sugar and shipping magnate, Claus Spreckels. She was now owned by Captain H. H. Sinclair, commodore of the South

BIRTH OF SAN FRANCISCO BAY YACHT CLUBS Around San Francisco's Golden Gate, yacht clubs came and went in the early years. The first one, the San Francisco Yacht Club, lasted through three seasons, then underwent a temporary collapse. The problem was financing. The first year, 1869, "life memberships" were solicited for $50, and the proceeds went toward erecting a small clubhouse at the Long Bridge. But almost everyone was a "life member," so that annual income from the dues amounted to very little. In addition, there was a misapprehension as to the nature of the new yacht club. Active sailors complained that those who came to the clubhouse to eat chowder on Sundays thought the boats were free for any member's use. The club folded in 1871 with a flourish. A grand Clambake was held atSausalito and executed in such style that, when the bills came in, the club was bankrupted beyond hope of recovery. The next year the property was sold to the Central Pacific Railroad, and the year following, the club was organized anew by thirteen old members. The new outfit was an inactive one, failing to hold any regattas. But at least it did not have life members. The membership was stirred into action and enlarged in 1876, inspired in part by the desire of local yachtsmen to participate in the Master Mariners' big Centennial Regatta on the Fourth of July. The event was a smash, with twenty-nine boats participating. The schooner prize went to the 71-foot J. C. COUSINS, the sloop price to the EMERALD.The revival put the San Francisco Yacht Club on a sound footing, and the next year there were fifty members and eighteen yachts eight schooners, five sloops, two yawls, and three steamers. A splinter group formed the Pacific Yacht Club in 1876, and it sponsored popular schooner races during the 1880's. But the membership was ostentatious, more interested in pa rties ashore than cruises afloat. The Pacific died quietly in the 1890's. The Corinthian Yacht Club, founded in 1886, attracted a rougher, water-front crowd and its "socials" became infamous stag parties. One dinner featured bear meat. The club chef had been bitten by a somewhat tame bear that hung about the place and he retaliated by cooking the animal. The Corinthian survived that affair and is with us today, on Corinthian Island at Belvedere.

Kauai Race is not Ballena Bay's First By Kathy Sulgit Ballena Bay Yacht Club has been the host of, as. well as participating in, many races since its inception in 1969, and for the past eleven years, BBYChas been extremely active in racing on the San Francisco Bay. Operating out of the Galleon Restaurant in Alameda, in 1971BBYChosted the Nationals for Contenders, as well as sponsoring a series of EI Toro races throughout the year. After the opening of its first clubhouse in the rear of the Harbor master's office in Ballena Bay Harbor, 1972 saw the start of the Whales Chase races that have continued ever since, along with the Joe Brooks Memorial Race, an annual event off the Ballena Bay Yacht Harbor. Joe Brooks was one of the first charter members of the Ballena Bay Yacht Club and erected our first race platform.An avid racer of his own Columbia 22, Joe Brooks drown outside the Golden Gate after the knockdown of a Cal 20 on which he was crewing. BBYCholds this race yearly in memorial of Joe Brooks. Bill Hoisington, flying under the BBYCburgee, took the first place championship in the 1973 YRAChampionship in his Columbia 24 PUFFIN,which is still berthed in Ballena Bay.Thatsame year Ori Gooch, who can be seen sailing his Santana 35 WILDHAIRin the Kauai Yacht Race, took second place in the Corinthian Mid-winters with his Gladiator HI SEA Throughout 1974,as weather and the tides permitted, BBYChosted its locally renown "Friday Night Races", with racers departing from Ballena Bay at 6:30 p.rn., rounding a not-too-distant mark, and flying back to Ballena Bay under full spinnaker colors. In 1975,Transpac entry HILARIA,skippered by Mal Weaver, showed off her great potential throughout a series of races on the bay, flying under BBYCburgee. Mal Weaver can be seen in the Kauai Yacht Race in his Santana 35 RACCOON STRAIGHTS, one of a class of Santana 35's competing for a new record in racing to the Islands. A close competitor of HILARIAin 1975,was custom 50,AXELHEYST, SKIPPERED BY Hal Nelson, founder of the Kauai Yacht Race.A somewhat modified AXELHEYST isone of the hot boats to be watched in the race. The Ballena Bay Yacht Club continued to host its regular series of races, along with several YRARegattas. Then, in 1979, Hal Nelson approached the Ballena Bay Yacht Club with the idea of sponsoring a race from San Francisco to Kauai. It seemed like an idea whose time had come. Thereseemed to be overwhelming favorable response to running this race. And it seemed that the San Francisco Bay Area, with its own colorful sailing history, was finally going to make its mark in the annals of sailboat racing. The race course, somewhat shorter in distance than the competitiveTranspac Race, would be comprised of running and broad reaching to the Islands. New records are expected to be achieved, and with them, a new era of racing for the San Francisco Bay.

Aloha • • Welcome to Kaua'i! Thisis an Island of infinite variety ... where you can wander, picking shells on a lonely beach, or rock at a night club ... meet descendants of Hawai'ian royalty or immigrants from thePhilippines.looking for a new and better life ... go to the dry west where the cactus grows and the cowboys ride, then look up at the wettest spot in the world ... Mt. Wai'ale'ale, which receives 476 inches of rain a year. We invite you to enjoy the changing colors of our miniature grand canyon, or shop in our friendly stores where the goods may be brought here from the exotic east ... or made by we-the-people of Kaua'i. LIKE MOST VISITORS did you arrive on Kaua'i in Lihu'e? The name of this town translated from the Hawai'ian is "goose flesh." It had its origin in the name of the former residence of a chief from O'ahu, and has nothing to do with its tropical, spring-like climate. In fact, one of the reasons we love living here is that the climate seldom varies more than 10 degrees all year round. In the "winter" the temperature ranges from 65 to 75 degrees, the summer low is 75 and the trade winds keep the high to a pleasant 85 WE WHO GREETYOU are a mixture of races with no majority, and therefore no minority to protestor complain. The native Hawai'ians have welcomed ... and intermarried with, each wave of Caucasians, Chinese, Japanese, Portuguese, Koreans and Filipinos who came to find a new home here. If you are a caucasian, you are a "Haole", (howlee) a word that once meant stranger but now means any white person. You will find that wh ile we tease each other about our racial backgrounds .. "Portuguese talk too much .. Chinese love to make money .. Japanese are uptight .. Filipinos too emotional .. and Haoles try to run everything" .. we get along like a family .. which means we occasionally fight with each other! We eat each other's ethnic foods, celebrate each other's holidays (we get more that way) and wear everybody's native costume.

RATHER GO WEST? Then first turn off at Maluhia Road (tunnel of trees) to picturesque Koloa town where the first sugar mill was built and on South to our "gold coast" of Po'ipu Beach. The sun usually shines there, even when Mother Nature is giving the restof Kaua'i a drink of rain to keep it green. BACK TO THE MAIN HIGHWAY, and on down to the tip.of the Island. (Kaua'i is shaped like an apple and that would be the blossom end). Go past PortAllen, and then on west to see the Russian Fort, remains of Russia's effort to take over the Island. It's being restored, but you can see the stone walls, in the shape of a star. Nest into neat little Waimea town, where Capt. Cook landed, and then you can wend your way up to the mountain for a look at our miniature grand canyon ... the magnificent cliffs and changing colors of Waimea Canyon. This is just the start of things to see and do on Kaua'i.

Thank You to Ballena Bays CANVAS SHOP for making the starting shapes for the KAUAI RACE located between Gates 5&6

ENJOY OUR RAINBOW OF RACES!

Enjoy too, our beautiful Island. Should you decide to travel north out Lihu'e town you can see a minimuseum in the plantation town of Hanama'ulu ... or stop at the Wailua Marina for a trip up the river in an area so sacred only the royalty were allowed there. Aboard one of the river boats you will be "royally" entertiined with songs, dances, storiesof the days of ancient Hawai'i. When the riverboat docks, it will be like going back to primeval times, walking along a path bordered by tropic vegetation to an enormous cave where the ferns grow upside down from the damp ceiling. Herethe crew will sing songs of exquisite beauty, gently amplified by the perfect acoustics of the cave. We had "chicken skin" .' .. bet you will-CONTINUE NORTH through the Sleeping Giant town of Kapa'a past rolling meadows until you reach the misty mountains of Hanalei. See the "Nurses Beach"· (Lumaha'i) from the movie "South Pacific" and on to the mysterious end of the road at Ha'ena.
