FROM THE COMMODORE COMMODORE - JOHN LAUN

The monthly time warp that is the Mainsheet column deadline is upon me, writing 3 weeks before you will see this around April 1st. However, that will not diminish my celebration of two fantastic events just completed in early March: •

Staff Commodore Wayne Terry and his team, in conjunction with our friends at Newport Harbor Yacht Club, staged a great 6th annual Islands Race. 33 competitors enjoyed wonderful sailing and a glorious night offshore. Winner of the Delaney Trophy for 1st overall on corrected time was Chris Hemans of Balboa Yacht Club with Varuna. HL Enloe’s Orma 60 trimaran Mighty Merloe from Silvergate Yacht Club in Texas finished the 130 mile course first in less than 8 hours, demolishing the course record by well over 3 hours.

And, the Farr 40 Midwinters were notable from a number of perspectives. This is the first regatta targeted by our new High Profile Regattas Committee led by Chris Snow. The purpose of this committee is to seek out major regattas that typically have a multi-year decision horizon for venue selection. The idea to pursue the Farr 40 class came from Vince Brun, as a way to raise our profile with an internationally traveling fleet of top racers in the near term. Susi Graff did a fantastic job chairing the event, with able support from Summer Greene and our fine Race Committee, and from Marilyn Foster keeping the wheels on the judges and lots of other issues. The big pluses: the racing was glorious in the bay for 2 days and offshore for 2, highlighting our great racing venue; and even more importantly, the hospitality of SDYC was up to our typically excellent standard. All of the competitors were ecstatic, and that includes our Rick Goebel racing his new Insanity in her initial regatta and topping all the other Corinthian competitors.

The balance of March included 3 more events that were sure to be fun and hotly contested, the Helly Hansen NOOD regatta and two Etchells regattas, the Bill Bennett Cup and the Etchells Midwinters West – the first and second of the Etchells Spring Series of 4 regattas at SDYC which also includes the National Championships and the Orca Bowl. There is, of course, no letup in April, with Men’s Mayhem on April 4th and my favorite weekend of the year, Opening Day weekend, April 18th and 19th. Lots of details on Opening Day weekend follow in this Mainsheet, but my thanks for the team putting this together. Dennis Kenneally and Joanne O’Dea, with a super committee, are organizing the yacht inspections, the best dressed dock competition, the ceremony complete with all the pomp, awards, and fun we enjoy, and the great afternoon of hospitality and camaraderie on the docks accented by the Junior Exhibition Regatta. And the Opening Day Dinner Dance promises to be epic, planned by our Entertainment Committee of Traci Miller and Christy Radecic. Finally, we have 3 new projects planned that will really enhance the dining and party experience at the Club. The new La Cantina doors for the Club Room and Spinnaker Room will be in construction as you read this, operational but perhaps not completely finished by Opening Day. They will be followed later this year by an expansion of our Front Deck onto the flagpole area wrapping around to the Spinnaker Deck, greatly expanding our informal dining enjoyment and banquet capacity. All this will flow seamlessly to the new Ferris wheel we will install on the Sailwash Lawn for the benefit of our Junior Program. Thanks to the Long Range Food and Beverage Strategy Committee led by Staff Commodore Fred Frye and the creative work of Bill Engle for these great initiatives. Please pardon our dust. Good Times, John Laun, Commodore • w w w. s d yc .o r g •

MEMBERSHIP

WELCOME NEW MEMBERS PETER KARVELIS - FLAG ““My family is adventurous and open to everything, youth sailing, adult sailing, boating with members, Catalina Island which we enjoy. We look forward to fostering new friendships and ties to the Point Loma community.”

THOMAS WOOD - FLAG “I want to be a part of the Yacht club here in San Diego because of the great reputation and the access to boating for my family. We want to attend the social events and meet other people with similar interests. I would like to do some sailing and also eventually purchase a sailboat to keep at the club.”

KORY BUSH - JR FLAG “Growing up with family friends who are members, I have always enjoyed my experiences, whether it was boating out on the San Diego Bay, spending time at the pool and facilities, enjoying the festivities for the 4th of July, or simply spending time at the docks with friends and family. Being a young adult looking to soon start a family of my own, I would love to have the opportunity to become part of a community that promotes a positive social environment and has the same enthusiasm as I do for water-related activities.”

RYAN SULLIVAN - JR FLAG “I’ve been sailing and boating all over San Diego and elsewhere my whole life and I feel that the best way to continue that is to join SDYC. I would consider myself fortunate to be a part of the amazing racing community here and hope to be an active sailor for years to come. I really like the Snipe fleet here in SD and would like to be a regular part of that as well as continuing some of the keelboat sailing I’ve done out of SDYC. As a former high school and college team racer I’m also very interested in the J22 team racing”

NICHOLAS AUGUSTINE - JR FLAG “As a fourth generation San Diego Yacht Club junior, I sailed in the Junior program and continue to fish and cruise with my family and friends, many of whom are SDYC members. As I begin my Navy career, I am currently based in Coronado. We spend as much time on the water fishing, diving and surfing as I can. We have many SDYC Angling trophies bearing our family name (Augustine & Ogle) and I look forward to carrying on the tradition through my adult life.”

PAUL GROSSMAN - FLAG “I love to sail and I want to enhance my skills and expand my racing and cruising opportunities by being a part of a community of experienced and enthusiastic sailors.”

DARAN OSBORNE - FLAG “Growing up in Point Loma and now raising a family here we realize the positive influence and environment the San Diego Yacht Club provides my family. We look forward to participating in the great youth and adult sailing programs. I have lifelong friends that are members and I want to offer those same opportunities to my family.”

SEAN SMITH - JR FLAG “I am very impressed with SDYC and its members, events, and presence in the yachting community and would like to be a bigger part of it. I find myself at SDYC much more often than my current club whether it’s for races or for our weekly Optimist Club meetings at SDYC. I live very close to SDYC and would like to be a member for the rest of my life as I plan to always be involved in the boating community and would love to have a family in the future that is involved with the community and club.”

MARLY ISLER - JR FLAG “During the week after my birth, my parents took me to SDYC. Since then, it feels like home. I learned to sail in the juniors program in my green sabot and met my best childhood friends in the program. I have so many fun summer memories of games of bayditch, water balloon fights on the 4th of July, and regattas. San Diego Yacht Club is one of the most meaningful places to me, and I hope to be a part of it for years to come.”

BRENT GLEESON PROVISIONAL ASSOCIATE “I love the culture of the Club, and as a combat veteran, appreciate the fact that SDYC has frequent military appreciation events. We love boating and plan to be life-long boat owners. I also believe my leadership experience could be of some value as I become more involved in the Club. We would like to eventually have a slip at the club and participate in any events.”

CHARLES MOON PROVISIONAL ASSOCIATE “Reasons for wanting to become a member of the San Diego Yacht Club are to be around people with like interests and to participate in fishing and cruising activities.”

IN THE SPOTLIGHT

TEAM CAPER TAKES TOP HONORS AT HH NOOD Commodore John Laun celebrated

with his crew after his boat, caper, was declared the overall winner of the Helly Hansen NOOD Regatta in March. Laun proved to be a rude host by capturing the grand prize, automatic entry in the Helly Hansen NOOD regatta championship at the British Virgin Islands. Back in December, the team that put together the Commodore roast, tagged John “The Most Interesting Sailor in the World,” which he said was a “joke,” but now the man who hosts a regatta with over 700 other sailors and wins it just for fun has added to his list of Dos Equis moments. There was no question that the Commodore’s win was a popular one. Team caper was cheered loudly. John explained that his J/120 sailboat, a 40-footer, benefitted greatly from excellent sailing conditions on Sunday. A mix of offshore and onshore breezes made for tough navigating on Saturday, but Sunday’s breeze stayed steady and strong.

“This was so much fun,” John said on the noisy, celebratory deck of the club, on what was a spectacular March weekend on the water. “We’ve been together a bunch of years. We sail with close friends, and when we have a regatta like this, it’s just great.”

6 • A PR I L 2 015 M ai n s h e e t • w w w. s d yc .o r g

“Conditions today were perfect,” Laun said. “Yesterday was a little challenging because we had the interplay between the Santa Ana condition and the sea breeze. But today was much more settled. The prevailing breeze today was a little bit north of west, and it blew 15 knots, plus or minus all day, it was great.” Staff Commodore Chuck Nichols praised John for his big win. Commodore Laun said he got into sailing so he “could compete against” Nichols. “We had our best chance to win the Caribbean trip,” said Chuck. Laun said it was all about his crew and friends on the caper, the SDYC’s Boat of the Year last year. The crew includes: Bill Campbell, navigator and tactician; Eric Axford, main trimmer, jib trimmers Steve Maloney and Jed Olenick, pit and pit assistant Traci Miller and David Ludwig, mast Seth Miller, bow Dwight Allgood and Sam Peterson. Congratulations to Team caper! ARTICLE & PHOTOS BY EVENT STAFF

“We were first after Sunday, and all we had to do is beat John, but we couldn’t do it. He sailed brilliantly, and it wasn’t any question. We didn’t feel badly about losing. He sailed better than us, and he deserved to win. We’re best friends on shore, bitter enemies on the water.” - Staff Commodore Chuck Nichols

CLUB NEWS SDYC Library’s Monthly Featured Books - April

Narrated by Academy Award winner Kevin Spacey, this film includes original still photography and 35mm film footage captured by Frank Hurley, the official photographer of the expedition, as well as modern day re-creations.

Our library is brimming with new titles, and some classic favorites, too. Stop by the library during library hours or anytime to find out more about our offerings. A full listing of titles can be found on the SDYC Library website at http://www.sdyc.org/facilities/library. Questions? Email us at library@sdyc.org.

The film captures the spirit of the crew of Endurance, depicting them playing sports in the snow and developing a camaraderie that can only be understood by those who have Endured such testing survival situations. After two years in Antarctica the ship was caught in pack ice and destroyed. Shakleton’s heroic attempt to save every man required skill, courage, tenacity, and soundness of mind in harsh unforgiving conditions.

By Aislinn Sotelo SDYC Library Committee

Novels: The Celtic Ring, by Björn Larsson leaves you filled with suspense with every turn of the page. Ulf, a wanderlust Swedish sailor lives alone onboard his 31 foot yacht, Rustica, in the Danish harbor of Dragor. One night, a stranger hands Ulf a logbook and then disappears into the night. Ulf quickly decides to keep the logbook safe despite the mysterious circumstances of its acquisition and his certainty that there was fear on the face of the stranger who gave it to him. After reading the puzzling entries in the logbook, Ulf decides to venture across the North Sea to Scotland, in the dead of winter, with his best friend, Torben. Your adrenaline will be pumping as you read of Ulf taking on the treacherous waters and encountering a series of dangerous events. Ulf is confident in his skills on the water, but is it more than Mother Nature who poses a danger to him…?

Novels: The Golden Ocean, by Patrick O’Brian. One of the SDYC Library’s most popular books, The Golden Ocean, is the first of O’Brian’s historical sea novel, a genre for which he would become well loved. The famed author of Master and Commander O’Brian set the backdrop to Golden Ocean with Commodore (later Admiral) Anson’s circumnavigation around the globe on H.M.S. Centurion in 1740. The book is from the perspective of a young Irish boy named Peter Palafox who signs up as a midshipman despite never having seen a ship before. O’Brian descriptively describes the adventures of Peter and the ship in great detail bringing history to life transporting the reader into another era. The hardships of sea life, including the witnessing of deaths, are juxtaposed against the excitement of exploration and adventure. A great read to take along on your own adventures, or for the armchair adventurer The Golden Ocean is a classic! The library also has a number of other titles by Patrick O’Brian. See the listing on the library website or pop in to the library and you can find them to the left under “Novels.” DVDs: Shakleton’s Antarctic Adventure An interesting educational film about Sir Ernest Shackleton’s Trans-Antarctic Expedition, (1914-1916) on the ship, Endurance.

BRIDGEDECKERS BY DEEGEE FARRELL PHOTO BY JEANNE LYNCH

Today

San Diego Bay is a brilliant blue outlined by huge, puffy, white thunderheads and lots of wind. I’d say “Perfect conditions for a sailboat race”. Are you ready? Thank you to Rita Moller for being our Hostess for the month of February. Rita baked lots of delicious homemade cookies, made sure others brought treats when she could not, enlisted the assistance of Jeanne Lynch (our cookie queen) and me, who added chocolate candy, because, “We deserve it”. Always smiling and the first person ready to set up a friendly game of bridge, Jean Krem is the FAVORITE of all of us Bridgedeckers. Jean is our Supplies Clerk, making sure each week that we have enough score sheets, pencils, playing cards and bridge tallies. Jean is the perfect clerk because she is always here. Each Thursday Jean comes down to the Club early, helping the Hostess

setting up our bridgedeckers game. She is a friend to each and every one of us and we are lucky to have her. Jean Kremm was born in Evanston, IL, and married Andy Kremm after his graduation from the Naval Academy. After flight training in Pensacola they

were stationed in Coronado. They raised their family of 3 boys and 1 girl in Pacific Beach. The Kremms moved to Point Loma in 2003. Joining SDYC in 1968, the Kremms had 3 different sailboats they kept on

G dock. Besides sailing, all 4 kids were into tennis and Jean spent at least 25 years working with Youth Tennis San Diego, first at Morley Field and then at the Barnes Junior Tennis Center - which she helped to create. In 2008 she was inducted into the San Diego Tennis Hall of Fame for her work with the junior tennis program, and for starting the Junior USTA National Tournaments here. Winners for the month of February were: Jane Baldwin, Monique Blinks, Doris Ellsworth, Jane Howard (guest), Jane Kenny,** Jean Kremm*, Jo Lancaster, Jeanne Lynch, Nancy Peckham* and Dorothy Wheeler. Congratulations to Jane Kenny for coming in First Place two weeks in a row. Jane made over 7,000 points in one game. Hurray Jane! That is quite an accomplishment. *denotes 1st Place We play Bridge every Thursday from 10 AM until 2:30 PM with lunch at noon. Our Hostess for the month of April is Phyllis Haynes. If you would like to play Bridge with us call Phyllis Haynes at (619)-224-2941.

DEAR KRABBY ANSWERING YOUR QUESTIONS, ON AND OFF THE WATER... BY CF KOEHLER, OWNER KOEHLER KRAFT COMPANY PHOTO BY BOB GRIESER

Who is Dear Krabby? Joanne and Tiffany caught me at a weak moment (I was sober) and convinced me that I should write for SDYC’s Mainsheet on the subject of caring for our beloved boats. “Why me?” I asked, making every attempt to get out of this duty (I even thought I had them convinced I was illiterate.) They reminded me that many boat maintenance issues are “common sense” from my perspective – as a second generation owner of a boat yard, I have over 40-years experience (am I really that old?!?) building, re-building, repairing, maintaining, and sailing boats – but for many of our newer members, or newer boat owners, boat maintenance and repairs are not common sense at all, some are overwhelmed by where and when to start. Where do we start? One idea was to have each article based on a question of interest from the membership. Kinda like the Car Talk radio show, or Dear Abby, but a little saltier - and thus, “Dear Krabby” was created. For the first article, my fans have

asked me to write about Opening Day from a caring-for-your-boat, perspective. Let me first say, if you are reading this now, it may be a little ambitious to ready your yacht for Opening Day Inspections. However, opening your yacht for Hospitality is still an option. Opening Day Inspection requires a level of spit and polish that challenges even most with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, while opening your yacht for Hospitality means making her shipshape enough to have guests aboard for drinks. If at this point you are feeling overwhelmed, don’t worry – you are not alone, being a “ship’s husband” is a daunting task. Start by making a rum and tonic (or your favorite beverage, if you don’t care for mine), take a sip and a deep breath. To be a Hospitality boat, your only goal is to make her look as best as she can – no need to get into that spitshine and varnish contest with those competing for inspection honors. Just make your yacht a reflection of your boating lifestyle and how you enjoy your time on the water. Of course, you should dress-ship, but I’ll leave the flags and protocol for someone else to

Monday Evening Bridge

write about. Did I mention being a “Ship’s Husband?” This term comes from a great book of the same name on caring for your yacht - written almost 80 years ago by H.A. Callahan of NYYC ‘s famed round table. Although some of the technical data is dated, the mind set has timeless value. Great onboard reading - if you can find a copy – maybe look in our own SDYC Library. I can’t resist sharing one tip. An effective, eco-friendly, home-made cleaning concoction: mix white vinegar and water (1:1), with a splash of an evaporating type citrus such as Simple Green or TC1X. Use a spay bottle for small areas, or pump-action sprayer (such as those used for pesticides) to easily cover the whole boat. This solution works on all surfaces, won’t harm gel coat, bright work, or paint and you can use it inside and out. Spray it around, down below to disinfect and freshen things up (the vinegar odor will evaporate shortly). Cleaning the decks first thing in the morning will save you time and effort, the sun doesn’t dry the solution as quickly and morning dew will help loosen most the dirt. Wash down thoroughly with water, then spray, scrub lightly and rinse. Bright work and glossy areas can be shined up with a dry rag. By the way, when you are cleaning up, and making ready, and you see something you have a question about – send your inquiries my way (mainsheet@ sdyc.org). Maybe your question will be answered next month.

ANOTHER SUCCESSFUL WOMEN’S EVENT

Dining Room for supper, opportunity drawings and a delightful evening with Susan.

What is the Right Career Path for you?

The right career is, to quote author Frederick Buzchner, “the one in which your deep gladness and the world’s deep need meet. That not only makes you happy, but that the world needs to have done.” On Wednesday evening, March 11th, the women of SDYC and their guests were privileged to hear a presentation by Susan Harris Laun (yes, the Commodore’s wife), Vice President of Human Resources and Global Social Responsibility for Qualcomm. Susan has lived in San Diego for 30 years, and her career with Qualcomm spans over 20 years. Over 85 women gathered in the

At some point in all of our lives most of us have been faced with the question, “who am I?; what shall I do?; where shall I go? what’s next?” Determining the answers to those questions isn’t easy and often more than one answer is the right one as we move through the phases of our lives. Susan outlined some of the key attributes to finding the answers to the above questions. She suggested networking – possibly one of the best ways to find out what’s out there

and often it can open the door to that perfect job. Some ideas to consider include - thinking about where you are now and where you would like to be. Then think about a job or a hobby where you felt successful and used your talents; carry that feeling into what you might do next and realize that success is not necessarily a straight line. Sometimes success looks more like a tangle of dock lines! She also stated that in today’s world, resumes and cover letters are being replaced by social media. Paramount to all of this: technical skills may be the price of admission to a new opportunity, but soft skills make you marketable and promotable. Thank you to Susan, to the Women’s Events Committee, and to all who participated in the drawing…we added $865 to our fund for Operation Helping Hand! It was a great evening. Please make a note on your calendars - the next Women’s Event is May 14th. Reserve early for Love the Pearls!

SDYC WELCOMES LIZ SMITH - NEW PARTNERSHIP DIRECTOR ARTICLE AND PHOTOS BY MONICA MCGOVERN & LIZ SMITH

have a passion for sports and the way they operate behind the scenes. When an athlete, parent, sponsor or fan attends a well-run event, it can make a big impact and that is what I want to do. MM: What is your education/ working background? LS: I graduated from the University of Michigan with a BA in Sport Management in May 2014. I was on the Michigan Sailing Team for all 4 years and served on the board during that time. In the summers I interned at both US Sailing and USA Hockey (National Team Development Program). After graduation I worked at an advertising agency in Ann Arbor, MI seeking out new business. This was a perfect transition before starting here at SDYC, I feel both confident and

The SDYC team is proud to announce

the hire of our newest employee Liz Smith, Partnership Director. Liz will be overseeing all sponsorship development and coordination at the club and working closely with the rest of the Sailing staff and our new Sponsorship Committee. She has some exciting ideas regarding sponsorship opportunities on both a local and national level. She stated “we are grateful to have such devoted support from our local shops such as SD Boatworks, Downwind Marine/Sailing Supply, DKS Marine Insurance and our local sailmakers. We have some new faces making an appearance this year including Ferrari and Maserati of San Diego, Reichel Pugh Yacht Design, and Green Flash Brewery as the title sponsor for J/70 North Americans. This is just the beginning!” I had the pleasure of sitting down with Liz and discussing her background and goals for the program. MM: Can you tell us a bit about yourself? LS: I am originally from the great state of Michigan and began sailing leisurely in beautiful Harbor Springs when I was a kiddo. A lifelong skier, I have always loved the outdoors and was a competitive athlete through college. I

challenged in this role and have set high expectations for myself. MM: What made you choose to move to San Diego? LS: Ready to move on out of Ann Arbor, San Diego presented itself as a wonderful new opportunity for me to grow both personally and in my professional life. Working at the San Diego Yacht Club, I feel like I have found my dream job! MM: What do you see as the challenges of building a Partnership Program? LS: One of the biggest challenges we have right now is understanding the value of our brand as SDYC, but we have a dedicated team of experienced people working on this and we are

14 • A PR I L 2 015 M ai n s h e e t • w w w. s d yc .o r g

figuring it out more every day. The other challenge is securing the larger partnerships for multi-year contracts, but with someone 100% dedicated to SDYC partnerships, I feel we can make this happen. MM: What are your long term goals for the Partnership Program? LS: I hope to secure multiyear partners, I believe in quality over quantity and I hope to develop meaningful, long term relationships with potential partners and really make them part of the SDYC family. MM: What SDYC events are you most looking forward to? LS: I’m looking forward to Yachting Cup, it sounds like a really fun event and I love to see my work come to life in events. The J/70 North Americans is another event that we have been working on for months and it will definitely be a great regatta! MM: Your idea of a perfect day? LS: My perfect day would start with breakfast at Crown Point Coffee then some surfing, a little rest in my hammock then some skiing and ending the day with a dirty martini and some oysters. Sounds like heaven! MM: How can people contact you for more information on the program? LS: My office is in the sailing office, my direct line is (619) 758-7338 and I’m always on my email liz@sdyc.org if you or anyone you know is interested in partnering with SDYC, please do not hesitate to reach out. The San Diego Yacht Club is a very special place; I am here to ensure we have the best partners that understand our values and commitment to yachting. I am thrilled to be part of the SDYC team!

BOB GAULT OF “BOB’S BOAT” FAME TURNS 95; CELEBRATES AT SDYC BY BOB GAULT JR. PHOTOS BY ASHLEY GAULT

B

ob Gault, a Flag Member for 42 years, celebrated his 95th birthday on March 8 with family at SDYC. Bob was born in Philadelphia in 1920. He has lived virtually his entire life in San Diego attending San Diego High and San Diego State College in the Phi Lambda Si Fraternity (Sigma Chi). He was a riveter, building B-25’s at Consolidated Aircraft during the war. After the war was over, he became a life Insurance agent and a Certified Financial Planner. He has crewed out of SDYC since 1950.

Seated: Pam Kelly, Bob Gault, Bob Jr., Shannon Gault and 3 generations of the Gault family

An avid ocean racer and cruiser, he sailed with Henry Wheeler on the 8 meter Albatross and Gerry Bank’s PCC Manila B in the 1960’s and 1970’s, among others. He also went on many Mexican cruises with his good friend Art Defever. Bob’s electric Duffy “Bob’s Boat” was one of the most utilized boats at the Club for 14 years.

The perfect day for Bob is lunch on the SDYC deck and later a yacht Harbor cruise and cocktails on “Bob’s Boat” with close friends. “The great thing about SDYC is the sense of community and friendships gained and enjoyed over the years. A very hallowed and special place”. SDYC is literally Bob’s favorite place in the entire world!

EDUCATION

What is the SDYC Sailing Foundation? COMPETITION

SCHOLARSHIPS

The San Diego Yacht Club Sailing Foundation was incorporated in 1990 after members expressed interest in finding ways to provide increased support for the club’s mission and ensure its future. The original intent was to use donations to support the Junior Sailing Program founded by Joe Jessop in 1928. Jessop foresaw the club’s future in the development of young sailing enthusiasts. Not only has that vision been realized, but the program has grown in size and scope, offering opportunities for all youngsters in the community to participate, to experience the thrill of sailing, and to develop the skills and confidence that come with good seamanship and the Corinthian yachting tradition. As a non-profit organization, the San Diego Yacht Club Sailing Foundation is able to support a wide variety of activities through tax-deductible contributions. SAILING FOUNDATION The mission of the Foundation is to promote national and international amateur sailing, maritime education and competition among people in the San Diego Area. Each year, grants are provided to sailing-related activities and programs in support of these goals. This is only possible through the generous support of our membership. ★

SDYC & NEWPORT HARBOR YACHT CLUB CO-HOST 2015 ISLANDS RACE The 2015 Islands Race was represented

by a fleet of 34 boats and sailed in near perfect conditions, especially for this time of the year. This race marks the sixth year of a successful partnership with our friends from the north, the Newport Harbor Yacht Club. The benefit of our club’s cohosting this regatta produces a better event year after year. Congratulations to Medicine Man for their 1st Overall finish. The Islands Race is an event where 90% of the race logistics, planning and preparation falls on the shoulders of the race management team the Sailing Office. For the this years successful effort, a huge “thanks for a job well done!” goes to out Jeff Johnson and Jared Wohlgemuth and their staff. The awards ceremony was well attended and everyone enjoyed a great spread for the postrace celebration. Looking forward to a revisit in 2016. BY WAYNE TERRY PHOTOS BY CYNTHIA SINCLAIR

ON THE RACE COURSE

In a pre-regatta interview, Rick Goebel said “Going into this first regatta, my overriding thought is Please God, don’t let me be last!” And he definitely wasn’t...Rick’s Insanity won the first-place trophy for the 5-boat Corinthian class and finished 7th overall in the entire fleet.

INSANITY TAKES FIRST PLACE CORINTHIAN CLASS TROPHY AT MIDWINTER FARR 40’S The International Farr 40 class brought by the Farr organization. Luigi runs all the

Farr events around the world, and SDYC’s RC folks were very happy to work and learn from him as they’ve done in the past during NOOD events. After 4 days of racing, Alberto Rossi and his crew aboard Enfant Terrible (Italy) won the Midwinters event. They had ended each day at the top of the leaderboard (although not winning every race) and proved that consistency is the key. A new member to the Farr 40 fleet and the Corinthian class is SDYC’s own Rick Goebel, known to many as the owner of the very successful J-105 Sanity. His Farr 40’s name is, of course, Insanity. “This is a whole new ballgame than what my core crew has been doing the last few years so we understand it will be a slow process. Our goal is to build as we go along. For Rick, the timing couldn’t be better. “This year, the timing really works well with training. With everything happening on the West Coast, we’re able to train here at home and worry about traveling next year,” Rick said. Insanity plans to compete at the Farr 40 Worlds in Sydney next year.

one of its official circuit events to San Diego for the first time ever on March 4-7, as SDYC hosted the 2015 Farr 40 Midwinters. “It’s an iconic venue that has long been associated with high-level sailboat racing and the San Diego Yacht Club has proven experience with running big-time events,“ said Geoff Stagg, manager of the Farr 40 class, as to how the decision was made. Eleven of the one-design boats competed in the Midwinters. While only 2 of the boats came from out of the country (Italy and Germany), the crews were as multinational as you can get and the languages and accents were a delight to hear. All of the boats raced together in the series of 11 races, but they were divided for trophy purposes into two classes, regular and Corinthian. Both classes have amateur owner drivers, but the Corinthian fleet allows for only 2 professional (Group 3) crew members and 3 new sails per year. The racing took place both in the bay (the first 2 days) and in the ocean (the last 2 days). The choice as to venue was that of PRO Peter “Luigi” Reggio, brought in

ARG GETS NEW CHAIRMAN BY SCOTT RIGHTS, N6PG

T

he ARG asks that you tune your radio to AM 1520, plus or minus 5, when driving into the parking lot on Opening Day. It’s a special message for those who have read this article. We haven’t offered an update from the Amateur Radio Group (ARG) for quite some time, so please allow me to bring you up to speed. First, I would like to thank our outgoing Chairman, Peter Van-Horne (K6AU), for his leadership during this last year. He continued the remarkable improvements on our world class Communications Center. We have worldwide communications available to all of our ARG members, and many cruisers rely on our station to send and receive their email traffic while they are underway. Thank you Peter. Now to introduce myself! I’m Scott Rights (N6PG), and it’s my honor to serve as Chairman of the ARG. I have three goals that I would like to complete while serving as the Chairman. First, I would like to see our group grow. In this age of the internet and cell phones, not everyone understands the relevance of ham radio, but boaters certainly should. It’s a reliable way to have communications from your boat to

other parts of the world. It was the link that saved Bob Vincent’s (N6EZV) month long cruise aboard his cutter “Sunshine” last summer. Whether it’s only a mile away or a thousand miles away. Stay tuned, as I try and get a member or two interested in getting the FCC license. Forget Luninosity, get your FCC amateur radio license and join our ARG group on the air for our morning coffee, where we talk about everything and nothing, all at the same time. Second, I plan on running a class for juniors to get their FCC Technician Class license. This test is not terribly difficult, and it will look great on a resume or college application. To those who need

it, it can also provide a scouting merit badge. This may kindle the future engineer in your child. I will organize dates for the summer, so if you have suggestions, please reach out to me early. This will be open to sixth graders or older. There is minimal math, Ohm’s law, with basic algebra. There is NO MORSE CODE requirement anymore. It will be a fun class…I promise. Third, I would like to see our Comm Center continue to improve. Peter has done a great job in this regard, and I have a couple ideas that I hope will further improve our station. So stay tuned!

Hey Bro,

“Back to College” AKA Stag Cruise? YES!

It turns out that you didn’t technically graduate. Seems there was some mistake in the admissions department, and the long and the short of it is that you’re a few units short of your degree. Don’t stress. The University of Catalina at Buffalo Beach is offering a stag cruise, whoops, I mean study session to get you back on track.

The Community Programs Committee

is off to a strong start this year with an exciting series of events. March 5th was the first of five sailing sessions where SDYC hosts middle schoolers from The Monarch School for an afternoon of sailing. For many of these students, this event is not only their first time sailing, but their first time on the water. Adding to the days amazing festivities, Jill Hartley from CowPow donated ice cream to all the kids after the sail. Word is the kids all had a blast. The second session of Monarch School sailing outings, this time for the elementary school students, will begin on April 23rd. The Monarch School is

still working out transportation issues. In other CPC event news, we have partnered with Sailing Heals, a nonprofit organization, to offer VIP Adult patients and their caregivers from

the UCSD Moores Cancer Center a memorable sail on San Diego Bay. This event will be on Saturday, April 11th, and promises to be a fun day for all. We will continue our great tradition of showing thanks to members of our military and their families with the return of Military Appreciation Nights, where club members take service personnel on their boats. They will be held Wednesdays during summer from May 27 to Aug. 26. We also have the Blood Bank blood drive on the Fourth of July and have scheduled the Sailfest Regatta for September 5, 2015.

MODEL YACHT FLEET BY DAVID RYAN

ith only a couple of weeks till SDYC celebrates its annual Opening Day festivities, we look forward to the official declaration, signifying the formal launch of the yachting season with all of the grandeur and deafening canon fire. In light of the winter endured by our friends on the East Coast, it reminds us that what we gratefully celebrate, most sailors look forward to for months with anticipation. Growing up at the club, I had always assumed “frost-bite” regattas were referencing some delectable frozen confection from the snack bar, named in honor of one of SDYC’s “first families”. Suffice it to say, as with the rest of the clubs’ fleets, the model yachting season “odometer” clicks over when the last note of “Auld Lang Syne” fades. While our season doesn’t really hit its full stride till the launch of the weekly Friday night Sunset Series racing “marathon”, which

Post race debriefing session

actually spans 3 of the 4 seasons from May through September, we enjoy some of the best racing conditions during the winter through the early spring. Strong participation continues to be the theme for this year, and for those that can’t get enough of a good thing, that translates into weekly practice races at the Mission Bay Model Boat Pond starting at noon every Wednesday, in what could be termed the “Little Oly” Beer-can Series (for those of you too young to remember, referencing the 7 oz. Olympia beer in the ‘70’s). This weekly, informal event is a perfect opportunity for new-comers to get their feet wet and veterans to sharpen their skills. Come by at lunch time to learn more and take a turn on the “tiller”. Back at the club, after some trepidation,

we decided to go ahead and race the final installment of our winter series, “rain or shine”, on a showery March Sunday following a mandate from a couple of respected fleet members. With 12 boats on the line, the turn-out was great (considering the rainy weather), and it wasn’t even cold enough to justify a hotbuttered-rum in the bar afterwards, as micro-brew IPA’s won out as the popular thirst-quencher of choice.

It will be rescheduled shortly. As a Classic Wooden Boat owner, if you wish to sail in some fun races, remember the Ancient Mariners Sailing Society has a wonderful calendar of racing, both with and without spinnakers, in the bay or in the ocean. If anyone has questions about how to get involved and become a member of AMSS, give me a call or ask any board member. This organization is a great way to meet fellow wooden boat owners and is a great source for information on how to maintain your boat. It’s beginning to look a lot like summer, so get the PC’s out on the water as much as possible. The boats need to be exercised regularly, just as owners do.


FLEETS, ETC.

IN SEARCH OF WHALES Nearly every boater in San Diego

has seen the grey whales on our leg of their 10,000 mile migration. I’ve taken countless opportunities to venture out with the sole objective to catch glimpses of these great creatures as they surface every 4 minutes or so. To get close enough to see their heads or tails pierce the surface made for a successful outing. To photograph them was often frustrating. You may have heard stories of driving halfway to Cabo to get close-up to the whales and their new calves. To me, these stories seemed “enhanced”, like there was a mystical exchange or other substance induced euphoria. It was almost unbelievable, those descriptions of baby whales being introduced to humans – even rising

out of the water to be touched and petted. Well, for a group of 27 people from the Cruising Fleet, this adventure became real in the last week of February. Our trip took us 500 miles down the Baja coast to Guerra Negro and San Ignacio, two of the three sites where thousands of grey whales gather to give birth. Over a period of 6 days we experienced all that is Baja – nature’s wonders, friendly people, local cuisine, and whales – lots of very friendly whales! Our trip also included nature hikes through Boojum Trees, a performance of traditional Mexican dances, climbing to view 1,000 year-old cave paintings, and wine – lots of wine. The trip was organized by Val & DeeGee Farrell and led by Lance & Janette Murphy. Everything was arranged through Andiamo Tours.;

they picked us up at the Clubhouse in a 50-passenger bus and introduced us to many sights on our journey, and booked our 4 trips to the two lagoons. Our two guides and a great driver made the trip worry-free. Everyone agreed, we were truly amazed by the adventure. A “mystical experience” – most definitely! Join the Cruising Fleet and “see the world” – maybe we’ll do this again next Spring? ARTICLE & PHOTOS BY CHUCK DAHILL

Answers to the RC Quiz on page 18 1 - False, RRS 89.2(a) reads “The organizing authority shall publish a notice of race that conforms to rule J1…” That’s right there is a whole section of rules governing the NOR (Google “NOR Template” for the ISAF fill in the blanks document). Sailing instructions on the other hand are the race committees’ responsibility (RRS 90.2). 2 - True, RRS 27.2 reads “No later than the preparatory signal, the race committee may move a starting mark.” One of our favorite tricks on Corinthian is to tweak the line with the windless right up to the last second. It can make quite a difference, and you’ll never know we are doing it as we can control the windless from the bridge. 3 - True, RRS 29.2 reads “When at the starting signal … there has been an error in the starting procedure, the race committee may signal a general recall…” Were you all pushing each other over the line, or did we screw something up? We’ll never tell. 4 - True, RRS 34(b) reads “If a mark is missing or out of position, the race committee shall, if possible… substitute an object displaying flag M and make repetitive sound signals.” Hopefully you never see this, as it’s surley a bad day for our mark set volunteers. 24 • A PR I L 2 015 M ai n s h e e t • w w w. s d yc .o r g

JUNIORS JUNIOR FUN PLANNED FOR OPENING DAY 2015 BY JOHN FRETWELL

While we won’t get much sympathy from our northeastern colleagues about the harsh realities of sailing in a year-round venue like San Diego, it can be acknowledged that Opening Day has a slightly different meaning in our locale. But just because your boat hasn’t been in the garage all winter, doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy some great Opening Day traditions. Here’s what’s in store for 2015:

• Junior Boat Inspections- 0900, Sunday, April 19. This is your chance to present the boat of your choice, with divisions for “Sabot A & B Fleets”, “Sabot C Fleets”, “Beginner/ Club Sabots”, or “Open” for non-Sabots of any kind, power or sail. In all cases, the judging emphasis is on preparation for effective sailing and racing, not financial investment, so invest some elbow grease and get your boat ready to succeed this year.

Please check the Juniors website at www.sdyc/juniors or stay tuned to our weekly eblast for developing details for exciting Opening Day events!

• Junior Boat Prep Party- 1000, Saturday, April 18. Have fun and share knowledge, supplies, and snacks with your friends, while prepping for Boat Inspection! We’ll have the tunes crankin’. • Hospitality Boat Decoration- 0900, Sunday, April 19. Younger sailors are needed to help place balloons and ribbons on Hospitality boats throughout the Club. Older Juniors are needed to lead the teams with a map. • Junior Exhibition Regatta- 1330, Sunday, April 19. This one is always a favorite. Several impromptu heats will be sailed in front of the Clubhouse, with live commentating and friendly fundraiser wagering from the deck. All current racers should make sure to bring sailing clothes, and traditionally we’ll sail Club Sabots.

Buy a Piece of SDYC’s Future! The SDYC Junior Program has purchased SIX new C420 sailboats. The purchase of these boats will provide continued development and success of our Junior sailors in this highly competitive class. The “naming rights” for these new boats are currently available and each purchase provides critical support for SDYC’s tradition of excellence in youth sailing. Don’t miss your opportunity to name a piece of SDYC’s future and support Junior Sailing. All donations will be handled through the SDYC Sailing Foundation. Contact John Fretwell, Junior Sailing Director with any questions. juniors@sdyc.org - (619) 758-5067
