FROM THE COMMODORE COMMODORE - CHARLES SINKS

Greetings: Is it August already? Wow, time is flying by. For those of us that enjoy the water in San Diego, August is nirvana. Sun filled days, balmy nights and warm ocean temps. Toss in gobs of regattas, the tuna are biting, surfing in warm water and sleeping with the windows open – oh yes. August brings back those great memories of childhood family vacations, hanging out at Catalina Island, moored on a ball with so many friends and their families all in the same cove. Waking up at sunrise and playing hard (I mean fun meter pegged) all the way until sunset. Then crashing, sleeping like a rock, waking up at sunrise the next morning to do it all over again. During those years, it seemed like all my friends lived in a pair of Birdwell Beach Britches, a t-shirt, flip flops and a sun visor. On second thought, we did! Judging by the crowds at Buffalo Beach and La Playa Cove, the action at the fish cleaning station, the to and fro of dinghies with surfboards heading out to Ralphs and a jammed packed racing schedule, it looks like a lot of SDYC families are making similar, amazing August memories. How lucky are we? The Fourth of July weekend is now a memory, but what a weekend it was. One more standing ovation for Niza Brown and Becca Rumsey our hostesses of 4th of July fun, S/C Purdon for hosting a magnificent Big Bay Boom and our fantastic SDYC Team for pulling it all off. Many of you have seen “the stats” for the Fourth, but a couple of noteworthy numbers from the weekend are worth repeating: 51 tents called SDYC home on this spectacular weekend, over 100 SDYC cyclists rode all the way around SD Bay (some fast, some slow, all happy), 53 pints of blood were collected from SDYC members (a record), 7000 pounds of ice was consumed (true), 100 twelve ounce liquid canisters were gathered in the “beverage bob” pool competition, 1,886 people made the trip up and then down “the Ice Berg” in La Playa Cove (a pure guess, but a good year), 1,680 ice cream cones consumed (no kidding), 3773 big boy and big girl drinks were served (bingo!), 27 boats sailed in the inaugural 4th of July Race (4 classes, 4 winners, 1 skipper happily overboard at the finish), 1,776 tennis shots were made and missed – (pure guess, but another good year), 714 rolls of a bocce ball occurred (who counted that?) and everyone had a great time! Can’t wait until next year! On a more serious note, we understand parking at the Club was a challenge on a very busy 4thof July weekend. While there are no “easy fixes,” the problem has not gone unnoticed and your Board and Club Management will be looking into some options for next year... While many of us were floating around La Playa Cove, soaking up rays, across the country and half way around the planet our SDYC sailors were kicking tail! The 7th edition of the World University Match Racing Championships - Georgetown University, anchored by SDYC “juniors” Nevin Snow and AJ Reiter, captured the prestigious collegiate match race championship. Congratulations guys! SDYC’s Bill Hardesty has won his second Etchells World Championship in 4 years, and third since 2008 with a dominating performance over the highly skilled 94 boat fleet competing in Newport, RI out of New York Yacht Club. The Line Honors crew this year included Taylor Canfield, Stephanie Roble, and Marcus Eagan. SDYC’s Steve Hunt, also a 3x Etchells World Champion, captured third with team “The Martian.” SDYC’s Kjeld Hestehave sailed a great Race 8 as well, narrowly missing the race victory by a few feet while finishing 2nd. Congrats to Bill and Team. I am sure the Etchells World Championship Cup will runneth over soon at the Club – don’t forget to invite the Commodore to the party. Sadly, just before the start of the Etchells Worlds, we tragically lost a dear friend, fellow member, fierce competitor, unreal athlete and a man with the heart of a lion, Bill Bennett. You’ll notice a “BB” logo below – this logo is a tribute to Bill, spontaneously generated from Bill’s legions of friends and family. Fair winds and following seas Bill. I hope that August will bring you all a great month on the water. Make the most of it. By the way anglers, if you happen to see a guy (losing his hair but with a toothy grin) in Birdwell Beach Britches, t-shirt and visor lurking by the fish cleaning station…. and you are pulling that fresh caught Bluefin out of the cooler, and you just happen to have an “extra” tasty fillet…..don’t be shy to make an offer “to a friend” to take a little home…I’m just sayin’...yum, yum good! Enjoy the summer everyone. We’ll see you around the Club. Good sailing,

Chuck Sinks, Commodore

2014 YACHT CLUB BEACH PARTY

Spending the 4th of July weekend at the club is one of the

best things about being a member of San Diego Yacht Club. This year Becca Rumsey and I had the pleasure of planning the festivities. For this we received many compliments but the secret is that the 4th of July would not be the non-stop fun that it is without the member volunteers and the SDYC staff. We would like to thank everyone for all their time and dedication which made our jobs so easy.

First of all we have to thank Amy Snyder, Director of Catering, for being there with us from minute one. Without her tireless (no idea when she slept over the weekend) work planning 4th of July would be far more difficult. Thanks to Taylor for coming in at the last minute and jumping right in. Now for our member volunteers! Chuck Mellor (Model Yacht Race), Christy Radecic and Matt Brown (three Tennis Events), Ruth Rollins and Leslie Eagan (Blood Mobile), Jean Lynch (Bridge Tournament), Lisa and Director Reiter (Grom Bocce), Dee Van Horne (Land Scavenger Hunt), Asa Morton, Mike Fink, Marilyn Foster and Vira Villarreal (keeping us laughing at Cocktail Bingo Friday), Gary Stephany (Kid’s Fishing Tournament), Tina Willmore (Cycling Club Ride), Keith Opstad (Bocce for Squares), Erica Opstad (Paddle Board Race), Dee Van Horne (SSSS Sabot Regatta), Dave MacVean (Dinghy Scavenger Hunt), Kyle Clark, Wayne Terry and Kirsten Stahl (Cocktail Bingo Saturday), Bruce Gresham (Beach Blanket Jam), Pam and Director Werner (Fun Run), Erica and Keith Opstad

(Bocce Championship), Lisa Marie Terhaar (Treasure Dive and Swim Meet), and last but certainly not least Marcy Van Stee and Kelly Thomas for the Blind Beer Bob… still laughing! Many of the people listed also had help from others and we want to thank you as well. Your stealth efforts are greatly appreciated. Each and every person on the staff at SDYC also gave 110% to make our weekend great, so we want to thank you all but also mention a couple of people who stood out among greatness. Gabby, Roberto and Cory; you were always there at every turn making sure that everyone had what they needed. Bobby, Winston and Daniel, thanks for keeping everyone smiling and managing a smile even while being hailed by everyone at the bar. Chef Darren, thanks for keeping the kitchen going… but especially huge thanks for the Mexican Feast Saturday night! The shrimp ceviche is the best I’ve ever had. To ALL the servers who ran around non-stop and probably still have aching feet; a million thanks. Hats off to our General Manager, Terry Anglin, for putting together a great team of people from the top down! Of course we have to thank Lynn and Commodore Sinks for trusting in us to pull this off. Lynn, thanks for all the offers of help with anything and everything! And Commodore, the first 4th of July Commodore’s Race looked like lots of fun. Great idea! Finally thank you to everyone who came to the club over the weekend. It was fun seeing everyone enjoying a great event with such style! BY NIZA BROWN

LIPTON CUP CHALLENGE

THE 100TH CHALLENGE FOR THE SIR THOMAS LIPTON CUP BY BARRY AULT Who Were Those Guys?

There is a lot of emphasis placed on

which club and which boat won the Lipton Cup. And, for a few weeks, days or hours after the awards dinner has been digested, the sailors dominate conversation in the bar like, “Hey, I hear that what’s his name won the Lipton Cup.” And that’s about it. The names of the winners then make the inevitable trek to the archives. I found a record of the winners in that archive and they range from those lost in the obscurity of history to the greats of our sport, past and present. Now all sailors know that there has never been a skipper who won the Lipton Cup without the help of a top notch crew. However, if I try to include those crew men and women that labored hard in the trenches, I’ll miss my deadline and most of it will be cut by my editor anyway. So a shout out to all of you in acknowledgment of your contributions and hope you will forgive me for leaving you out of this article. The skippers, however, I do want to “Back in the day” (from 1904 to 1941), the winning skippers were Charles Gould, H. A. Dodge, E. W. Gahan (2 wins), J. S. Hawley, Frank Wyatt (2), Ernest Shields, Harry Sly, John

Owen Churchill

Bill Hardesty

but the list is dominated by the truly great sailors on the west coast from a wide variety of sailing backgrounds. Each club, when fielding a crew either as challenger or defender, pulled out all the stops to have not only the best boat but also the best sailors of that time sailing under their clubs’ burgees. Whether it was Star or Etchells world champions or IOR legends or dingy medalists or local fleet champions, they all answered their club’s call and competed for the Lipton Cup. The post war list of those that made it to the top step of the podium includes: Milt Wegeforth, Darby Metcalf, Don Edler (2 wins), Alex Irving, Walt Elliott (5), Gartz Gould, Walter Franz (3), Gerry Driscoll (2 wins), Mort Carlile, Malin Burnham (3), Jay Jones, Ed Turner, Dick Blatterman, Ash Bown (2), Marty Gleich, Fred Liebhardt, Gene Trepte, William Taylor, George Twist, Tom Tobin , Lowell North, Bruce Nelson (3), Al Simon, John Driscoll, Scot Tempesta, Dave Ullman (5), Vince Brun, Keith Lorence, Robbie Haines, Chris Snow, Geoff Longenecker, Jack Franko, Bill Hardesty (2), Kenny Manzoni, Andy LaDow, Bob Little and Brad Rodi. I know there are some names missing and I apologize for the gaping holes in our archive as late as the 90’s. As I said, the personalities involved seem to be the first to be forgotten yet they remain great sailors listed or not. I hoist a mug and salute all of you. Besides whatever else you have accomplished in life, you all won the greatest prize in west coast yachting; the Sir Thomas Lipton Challenge Cup.

Barneson (3), E. E. Rogers and Owen Churchill (2), Syl Spaulding, Pierpont Davis, Tommy Lee (3), Ben Weston, Ed Peterson, Arthur Rousseau, George Kettenburg, Ted Conant, Tod Geary, William Slater, Emerson Spear and Claire Neuner. All of these names have great meaning for friends and families and those of you with great memories. For the rest of us, we only know that they won the Lipton Cup making them great sailors of the past. The end of WWII signaled a raising of the bar for winning the Cup. There are a few top “club” racers in the mix

Its focus is on providing folks with little or no experience cruising to Baja into the Sea of Cortez the opportunity to travel with a group.

If you have any questions, please contact cruise co-chairmen Chuck Dahill Chuck@SDYC.org or Marv Benson Marv@SDYC.org.

In 2009, SDYC was the sponsoring club for the FUBAR Odyssey and did such a great job that the founder of the event, Bruce Kessler, has asked SDYC to make it a permanent club activity. The good news is that all the proceeds from this event will be donated to the SDYC Junior program, helping our program continue to grow as one of the best around. If you, or someone you know, would be interested in being a sponsor for CUBAR 2015 and helping the Junior program, please visit www.cubar.org to learn more about sponsorship levels and benefits or contact Bob Morris at Bob@sdyc.org.

ETCHELLS WORLDS BY JOANNE O’DEA Photos by Sharon Green

Bill Hardesty Wins 2014 Etchells World Championship

Consistency is king and Bill Hardesty

and crew of Stephanie Roble, Taylor Canfield and Marcus Eagan have earned the 2014 Etchells World Championship by sticking to a steady plan for success. The plan was formulated 6 months ago, when Hardesty put together his young team consisting of Match Race World Champion Taylor Canfield and top women’s match racer Stephanie Roble—25-year-olds eager to dedicate themselves to a worthy goal. Add in top trimmer Marcus Eagan and the team was complete. After a tough series in Miami last winter, Hardesty made the decision to train in his home waters of San Diego where he had top talent and similar conditions to the worlds venue in Newport. “Tom Carruthers, Vince Brun and Bruce Nelson helped us up our game through sail testing and boat tuning,” Hardesty said. But they didn’t focus solely on boat speed. “We worked on evaluating risk management to make good decisions, define it, buy into it and follow through; that all came together at this regatta and helped with our consistency.” Hardesty further commented that

having three elite match racers on board “gave us an advantage at the start through our time and distance timing and laylines, which made starting easier and more comfortable. We only had one bad start, that was the race we finished 20th.” With one race to spare, Bill Hardesty won his third Etchells World Championship, with a dominating performance over the highly skilled 94 boat fleet competing in Newport, RI out of New York Yacht Club. The field raced the final race of the 9 race series without Team LineHonors in the fleet, as their cumulative score including the throwout has sealed their Championship victory without needing to race the final race. This was the case in 2011 as well, as Hardesty had a very similar results sheet to this year. Hardesty also won the Etchells Worlds in 2008. The LineHonors crew this year are Taylor Canfield, Stephanie Roble, and Marcus Eagan. Their unofficial

finish position in Race 8 was 15th, which sealed the victory. SDYC’s Kjeld Hestehave sailed a great Race 8 as well, narrowly missing the race 8 victory by a few feet while finishing 2nd in the race. Commenting on his third Etchells World title, Hardesty said: “This was one of the toughest to win; the level of sailing was at its highest. But it’s very exciting. I love the class, I love the boat.”

Championship Regatta Ralph Richey was Commodore, the club had just won back the Lipton Cup after a 10 year absence and the majority of this year’s participants were racing sabots in the junior program. After 15 years of letting the trophies collect dust in the members lounge the newly reactivated Jr. Flag Committee decided to pull them out and put on another regatta. The first attempt, scheduled for earlier in the year, was canceled due to a large storm that brought rain and high winds to the club, not ideal conditions for a fun regatta. The second attempt was much better; sun, wind and lots of great camaraderie. The regatta took place in La Playa utilizing the Club’s fleet of J/22’s. Seven teams sailed around La Playa on Saturday June 21 with a 5 knot breeze. The teams were a mix of Jr. Flags, and Flag members who still think they are Jr. Flags. There was even a group of spectators on the dock to watch and hop in the boats for an occasional race. The group started races with the electronic starting system on the Race Dock with the last person off responsible for hitting the button. After 5 races were completed team, Greg Reynolds and Kaitlin Driscoll took home first place with all bullets. In second was team George Saunders, Zach Barrett, and Neil Ledsam. In third place was team Tyler Sinks, Mikee Anderson, Kate Sheahan and Olympic Campaigner Briana Provancha. Thanks to Danielle Richards for helping organize the regatta and to yacht club member Mike Hinkley for his donation of Green Flash beer. We hope to see more Jr. Flag members compete in this regatta next year!

SENIOR SABOT NATIONALS BY JIM HECHT Photos by Edna Johnson

On June 14 and 15, the Senior Sabot

National Championships were held at Mission Bay Yacht Club. 54 brave souls, a recent attendance record, squeezed themselves into these awesome eight-foot-long racing dinghies and completed six long races, except for the Grand Masters, who in accordance with International Naples Sabot Association (INSA) rules, only had to sail three. Competitors were mostly from San Diego Yacht Club (22 entries) and Mission Bay Yacht Club (19 entries), but we also had competitors from Alamitos Bay Yacht Club (Long Beach), Balboa Yacht Club (Newport Beach), and from as far away as Santa Barbara. Competitors were divided into divisions based on age, weight, and ability. In the top-tier Senior Division (17 entries), Mark Gaudio from Bahia Corinthian Yacht Club (1-2-1-4-1) edged out Chuck Sinks, the Commodore of SDYC, by one point (2-1-3-3-1). Mark and Chuck have been trading the one and two position in the Sabot Nationals for more than 30 years. Chuck’s

son Tyler took third. In the over-40 Master’s Gold Division (18 entries), it was Scott Finkboner of MBYC (1-4-21-1) over Barbara Tillson of MBYC (21-2-3-2) by one point. Tom Newton of ABYC took third. In the Master’s Silver Division (10 entries), it was Cathy Black-Smith of ABYC, followed by Darin

Hayden of SDYC. Geves Kenny of SDYC won the Grand Master’s Division (6 entries over 65), and Jeff McDermaid of ABYC won the Clydesdale’s Division (3 entries over 200 pounds). Sabot National Championships are not possible without an army of volunteers to take care of registration, measurement, race committee, and various other requirements. Every

Sabot is hand-crafted and somewhat unique, so for this important competition, it is necessary to check each boat for conformance to weight and key dimensional requirements. Geves Kenny organized a large group of volunteers, many of whom have been doing this for generations. Registration was expertly handled by Betty Woodall, Arlene Simpson, Liz Eisemann, and Jill Hallett, the INSA Secretary. The Race Committee, consisting of Grant Williams PRO, Edna Johnson, Fred Marks, Rod McClennon, Kirk Johnson, Dave Eberhardt, Gary Gould, Marshall Harrington, Stan Betts, Philip Raffee, Kent Foster, Roger Hinton, and Craig Storms, gave the competitors perfect races. Selby Winkler set up the online registration, posted the Notice of Race and Sailing Instructions on the web-site, and took care of the scoring. Marilyn Foster and her team handled one protest. The organizing committee of Mike O’Connell, Geves Kenny, Dick Denzler, Betty Becker, Bobbie Morrow, and Dee Van Horne made sure every detail was taken care of. Lois Harrington produced the fantastic artwork for the T-Shirts and trophies. And Matt Hopps, INSA President, was on-hand to award trophies. All of the volunteers made my job as Regatta Chair very easy. Thanks to everyone who made this event possible. We’re hoping to see everyone out racing next time.

ON THE RACE COURSE J/120’S AT LONG BEACH RACE WEEK BY KIRSTEN STAHL

This year, the Long Beach Race Week

Chuck Nichols and his team were also awarded the top prize, which was a suit of new FJ or 420 sails and also a new sabot sail, to be donated to the SDYC Junior Program. Special thanks are in order to Ullman Sails for their generous donation and to Long Beach and Alamitos Bay Yacht Clubs for a great idea and a well-run regatta.

regatta represented not only the third of four major regattas on the J/120 calendar, but the west coast rotation of the class’s North American Championships. While the turnout was disappointing, the competition was as fierce as ever. After the first day, Caper and Shenanigans were tied for first place while Jim and CC Rider were tied for third; two LA boats against two San Diego boats. On the second day the same boats tied for first and third after five races. The last day’s first race was held in light and fluky conditions and nobody was safe as the lead changed at each mark. CC Rider came from last place into first and then into third while managing to keep those in front of them in the standings behind

in this crucial race. In the final race, Caper maintained a one point lead over CC Rider with the LA boats tied one point behind CC. The winner of the last race would win the series and it was all-on. CC Rider was fortunate to grab an early lead and managed to hold it all the way to the finish giving Chuck and his team the victory. At the trophy presentation, there was one last surprise as CC Rider was also named One Design Boat of the Week for winning the mostcompetitive class, as determined by the Long Beach and Alamitos Bay race organizers. With that designation,

RACE COMMITTEE BY SUSI GRAFF Photos by Cynthia Sinclair

There

are times when the Race Committee runs a race and never gets on the water! This happened twice recently, first with the Kettenburg Regatta at the end of June and then with the inaugural Fourth of July Regatta. The Kettenburg Regatta brought together wonderful wooden boats for a 2-day event. The first day of the regatta was ocean racing around buoys, and presented a challenge for the Race Committee in that the handicap range of the boats was from 86 to 295 (PHRF). Coming up with a course distance that would work for everyone (and not have boats sitting around waiting for a half hour for the last boat to finish) took some thought, but luckily it worked out and the last boat in each class (there were three) finished no later than 10 minutes after

the first boat in that class to finish. We had good winds and flat seas and the boats were beautiful to watch. The second day of the Kettenburg was a pursuit start, and the Race Committee used the cupola on top of the club house as the “signal boat.” RC members Gordie Zimm, Mike Dore and I climbed up the winding staircase to the nice little cupola room and ran the starts (with occasional assistance from Waterfront Director Jeff Johnson). It was a beautiful day with enough wind that boats finished faster than expected, leading then to a run up the staircase to catch the first boat finishing. As a friend of mine who gets seasick said, “If I knew you could run races from the cupola, I would join the RC!” Keep that in mind. The inaugural Fourth of July Regatta was the brainchild of Commodore Chuck Sinks. We had 20 boats compete, ranging in size from a Finn to a Beneteau 40.7. This was again a pursuit start, and again we made our way up the winding staircase to the

cupola. Commodore Sinks, Director Jerelyn Biehl, Gordie Zimm and I made up the RC contingent on the landlocked “signal boat.” It was another beautiful day and great fun to watch the competitors jockey around the area directly in front of the clubhouse, waiting for their turns to start. The regatta was deemed a great success, and with a few ideas for improvement will undoubtedly become an annual event. July was again a busy month for the Race Committee. In addition to the events mentioned above, we ran the Club 420 National Championships with 55 boats competing, and the July One-Design weekend. August is relatively quiet, but September brings the Snipe Western Hemisphere & Orient championship, the Beneteau Cup (which we fondly call the Intergalactics), J-Fest and the inaugural Race for Rady’s charity race. Please consider joining us for one of these events. Sail fast… live slow!

e all survived the Fourth of July festivities at the club! Wasn’t it great to see all of the families enjoying themselves? I love this time of year when everyone is out enjoying the beautiful weather and the warm water. The sabot fleet sailed on Saturday the 5th. We had about 9 boats on the water with shifty winds and dodging the raft up boats was quite an adventure for our sailors!

Tuesday sailing has been wonderful! We have a good showing of sabot fleet sailors and the weather couldn’t be more perfect. Thank you Race Committee for continuing to serve our fleet so graciously. We couldn’t race without you and we appreciate all of your efforts in setting a perfect course and finishing all of the boats. First start is 11:30am until 1:15pm. The SSSS also races once a month on a Saturday. So, if you can’t make the Tuesday, come join us on Saturday.

35th annual Long Beach Race Week was the last J /70 Worlds Championship Qualifier for the West Coast. 16 boats headed to Long Beach for the Thursday afternoon Ullman practice session and the anticipation of 3 days of breeze and tight racing. The tight racing transpired but the breeze didn’t go above 12 knots all weekend. Bennett Greenwald and Team Perseverance showed up ready to use their deep experience and show the fleet how to do this racing thing! Dave Vieregg’s Team Soggy Dollar was looking to qualify for the Worlds in the Corinthian class. Rich Bergman’s Team Zuni Bear team was hoping to make gains on the fleet in their new west coast boat. Racing on Friday was outside of the breakwater, 2 races in 10-12 knots, but in lumpy seas. Dave Ullman’s predictions worked out and left seemed to pay off for the top teams. Light tension on the shrouds with loose, powered up rig worked best. Zuni’s race 2 and 3 was right in the middle of the fleet and still in the hunt. Saturday we awoke to more marine layer, and our race course moved inside the breakwater. Now we had to contend with the Catalina 37s in front of us on an inside

course. Although the wind was in the left mode, the right angles paid off unless you got to the far left breeze lines, tough conditions to commit to. Perseverance was 2nd for the day with a bullet and two 4ths and Soggy Dollar had two good races with a 5th and 6th but a poor 13 in the third race kept them in 6th overall. Dave Ullman’s Team 32 had four 1sts and one 2nd to leap way ahead in the standings. Friday night the party at ABYC was fun with bratwurst, sausage, beer, and music. SDYC sailing teams were rumored to be hanging out at a local Irish pub during the week. The Saturday night pool party with tacos at LBYC was the traditional way to spend the last night of a great regatta. Day 3 started a little lighter than Saturday with the J /70s still on the inside course. Dueling with Catalina 37s and Vipers for breeze again on the right seemed to pay off, if you could get there. Perseverance started out great with a 2nd and Soggy Dollar was back in the pack hung out to the left with a 13th. A good race was needed for Vieregg’s team to qualify; they ended well rounding the weather mark in 3rd, finishing 5th for the race, 6th overall just behind Perseverance in 5th (by 19pts) and Zuni in 12th for the week. A great turnout for the J/70 fleet on the west coast, with boats from San Diego, Newport, Santa Barbara, and San Francisco showing up. Come out and join the SSSS for fun on and off the water!

ANGLERS BY BROCK GUENTNER

A

nglers love this time of year because there are so many opportunities to get on the water and catch fish. On June 21st the SDYC Anglers won the 5th Annual SDYC vs SWYC vs Coronado Anglers Bay Fishing Challenge. This event had been dominated by the SWYC Anglers for the past several years, but with a little luck and some great anglers contributing big catches, like Bob Fletcher’s 6 pound Corbina, Tim McQueen’s 5 pound Halibut, and Neal Johnson’s 4 pound Bass, we were able to bring home the bragging rights for the best club on the water. Special thanks go to Pete Evering who puts in a tremendous amount of time and effort to make this Angler’s event a great success. June 28th the Anglers hosted 34 kids aboard the Sea Watch for a half day

fishing adventure. What a fantastic day we had, with blue skies and calm seas we headed out to the kelp beds below Hill Street and the fishing seemed to be nonstop. A large calico bass got the day started with many more great catches to follow. We were anchored in the kelp above a rocky area with sand all around and as the boat drifted back and forth we caught sand bass, small halibut and several different species of rockfish. Some very large Sheepshead, which are a fantastic looking fish with large teeth and very bold black and red stripes along their body, were also caught. Lots of Barracuda and Mackerels where caught on the surface giving the kids who brought light spinning rods an epic battle. We would like to thank Gary Stephany and Louie Zimm for organizing a wonderful trip for everyone. We will be fishing the 25th Annual JCAT aboard the Sea Watch on Aug 17th, so sign up today at the front desk to join us. Space is limited.

The Dock Fishing Derby was Saturday July 5th, and 65 kids showed their angling spirt between the hours of 7am-9am at the SDYC guest dock. We were injury free, minus the sweater of a sailor walking too close to a novice fisherman, but that was quickly released and sent back on its way. The kids used Ghost Shrimp, provided by Todd Jones and Neil Johnson, and Squid as bait and caught at least one of every type of fish you can imagine, as you can see by the winners list below, swimming around the docks of the club. Watching the excitement of kids catching fish is joyful beyond words. This summer’s warm water is going to provide many opportunities to catch fish so remember, as you make the crossing to Catalina Island, to troll a feather lure, white, red, or green about 40’ behind the boat, and if you see a large kelp patty steer to pass next to it. You just may catch a Yellowtail, Dorado, or even a Yellowfin Tuna. Tight lines… from the Angler’s Group.

for Bingo. They started at 2 minute intervals in front of the club and had to save their time on the rest of the fleet. It was a pleasant sail around the bay, but a little light and shifty. In and out of Shelter Island was probably the trickiest part, as minutes could be gained or lost. Jim Dorsey finished first with his rock star crew, Kris Zillmann (SDYC Sail Fleet Manager), Sandy Vissman, and Chuck Skewes, followed by Rick cElvain in second and and Ben Nieting in third.

Throughout the year the J/22 Fleet offers opportunities to improve your understanding of Match, Team, and Fleet Racing as well as race organization and umpiring. Depending on your interests, the J/22 Fleet has many opportunities to expose members to cutting-edge material, tutelage, and leadership in the sport. We offer day passes, annual passes, and are always happy to bring new people into the Fleet with the monthly Sail Check Days on the last Saturday of each month.

a beautiful setting, perfect weather and the tremendous facilities of SDYC. Our event began with festivities on our guest dock with 15 boats medtied for the weekend. Friday evening we enjoyed cocktails and a potluck dinner. Saturday was spent relaxing on boats, enjoying the Club and BBQ with member Chef and Cruising Fleet CoCaptain Lanny Cornell and staff grilling and the margarita machine to insure everyone had a good time. Sunday morning we enjoyed Bloody Marys and a continental breakfast together and departed for the long trip home.

celebrated holiday around the San Diego Yacht Club; you may have noticed many fleet participants were training the night before in the fitness center (or was that the bar?) or practicing in La Playa (or was that the pool?). This year a new activity was introduced the First Annual Fourth of July pursuit race. Commodore Sinks and the race committee went all out planning the start and the race course so it would deliver the maximum amount of fun and camaraderie, yet still retain that competitive spirit. The most highly contested and largest fleet was surely the J/22’s. This is where money and ratings don’t apply; just skill, talent, and luck. Seven J/22s set out on the course designed to get everyone back in time

s if on cue, the July 4th weekend celebration ushered in an appropriate dose of seasonal swelter, creating an ideal canvas for our annual SDYC model yacht regatta. As the holiday schedule would have it, we were able to shift our regular Friday night racing ahead one day to Thursday night. The significance being that we were able to enjoy a relatively consistent afternoon sea-breeze from the southwest, in comparison to the oppressive stagnation of mid-day calm in previous years. Participation has been up, generally, this year and our Independence Day regatta was no exception, with 14 boats competing under unusually consistent conditions. The nice sized fleet included SDYC junior racers Jack Egan and Cole Harris, who have had the opportunity to get some “helm time” over the last several regattas,

following their inauguration into the fleet back in April. Showing flashes of brilliance at times, Jack is finding that consistency can be elusive out on the swirling “velodrome,” that is the SDYC guest dock venue for our weekly Sunset Sailing events. The results for the top 10 skippers from the Independence Day regatta are: SERIES WINNERS 1) David Ryan 2) John Landon 3) Larry Adams 4) Dick Denzler 5) Jean Malthaner 6) Skip Malthaner 7) John Rudderham 8) Chris Snow 9) Sandy Purdon 10) Chuck Mellor

Special thanks need to go out to our terrific, highly proficient RC crew that includes Betty Becker, Darin Hayden and Jane Landon. It can be a job with few rewards; to serve as referee,

policing our band of occasionally unruly, but consistently cantankerous group. To say that we could not do it without them is an understatement, as we can barely pull it off with their tactful expertise. Thank you ladies! Finally, we were able to help celebrate a special surprise birthday for the fleet “godfather,” Jean Malthaner on July 7th at the club. Spearheading the planning efforts were Jane Landon and Jean’s daughter, Sue Moore. Apparently, by Jean’s reaction, their clandestine efforts went undiscovered and remained under wraps, as a large group of his friends and family (including sons Skip and John) can attest, based on interactions with the birthday boy during the ensuing revelry and festivities. Happy 86th young man! As we approach the half-way point in the season, Larry Adams continues to lead the High Point competition, by a comfortable margin, with S/C Sandy Purdon, John Landon, John Rudderham and yours truly “nipping” at his heels. For now it’s only nipping, but the collective effort can have a cumulative effect, just ask any African herd animal about those “pesky” wild dogs.

HOUSING WANTED The 2014 Snipe Western Hemisphere & Orient Championship will be held at SDYC September 8-12. We are looking for volunteers to house a skipper and crew for this event. If you don’t have room at your house but have a boat they can stay on that would be great too. Dates needed for housing September 5-12. Some teams may arrive as late as the 7th. Please contact Lynn Sinks at 619-851-6872 or email lynnsinks@gmail.com if you would like to help. • w w w. s d yc .o r g •

BUFFALO BEACH BY SCOTT LAUNEY

Meet Buffalo Beach’s New Beachmaster

I

was lucky enough to spend three days on Buffalo Beach right before the July 4th holiday and got to know our new Beachmaster, Nate Porter, much better while also enjoying a few days on our Outstation. As those of you who have been out there this year already know the camp is looking and functioning great. Nate’s been doing a wonderful job of keeping everything maintained and ship-shape and he’s been a pleasure for me and all of the Buffalo Beach Committee members to work with. I’d like to give our SDYC members a brief background about Nate so you’ll know him better and to be able to appreciate the hard work he is doing for us all. Nate attended the University of New England where he graduated in 2012 with a degree in Marine Biology. He grew up sailing and racing with his Grandfather most summer Sundays and that got him started with his love of the sea. His work background includes teaching sailing and racing as a Senior Instructor at the Cohasset Sailing Club in Massachusetts, a Laser and 420 instructor at the Bitteford Pool Yacht Club in Maine and also employed in Hawaii as a deckhand, lifeguard and snorkeling instructor. All his experience on the water made him realize he would like to continue working in the maritime business community so in the summer of 2013, while working at a Pensacola, FL resort he studied and achieved his US Coast Guard Six Pack license. In early 2014 looking for a change of environment he decided on moving to San Diego and while searching for employment he came across the SDYC

ad for our Beachmaster at Buffalo Beach and he immediately applied for the position. He quickly rose to the top of our candidate list with his experience, knowledgeable questions about the position and his easy going demeanor. Arriving in May, Nate got thrown to the wolves on his first day at the Club; from getting checked into the SDYC employee system, to meeting all the other employees and members he’d be dealing with about Buffalo Beach and finally into a BB All Hands Meeting that evening where he got to meet many of our members who support our Outstation only to be put on the spot having to describe his background and put up with all our questions---which he graciously did. Early the next morning we trailered “Sweet Denise” to Dana Point and launched her with Nate, Brian Ohlfest and Mike Ottombrino for a rough crossing to Catalina. Once there for the next four days at the Outstation Brian gave Nate and Mike (he’ll fill in for Nate as needed) a complete check out on all the ins and outs of life at Buffalo Beach. Brian was invaluable in passing on to Nate everything he would need to be successful on the island, but mostly getting him started on the shared relationships with all the people who really make White’s Landing and

22 • AU GUS T 2 014 M ai n s h e e t • w w w. s d yc .o r g

Avalon work. I know that at first Brian’s instruction seemed like getting fed from a fire hose, but after a couple of calm weeks on the island to absorb it all Nate has become comfortable with the running of Buffalo Beach and has been doing an excellent job. Nate has a great asset in is his girlfriend Josie Reiss who came to join him on Catalina in early July and make his island tenure much more enjoyable. They met while at the University of New England and together made the decision to move to San Diego to broaden their experiences. You’ll also be interested to know that Josie has completed her advanced education in Occupational Therapy (OT) and by the time you read this she will have completed the testing required for her to get her license in OT to work in California. We know she’ll be successful in her endeavors. Just in case you want the inside scoop; Nate hates spiders and Josie doesn’t like to dive head first in the water. They’ve also been enjoying the constant visits from the Buffalo and Catalina Island foxes that have become common sights around the Outstation. Please give them a warm welcome to our “Little slice of Heaven,” Buffalo Beach, when you get out to Catalina. I know you’ll enjoy meeting Nate and Josie and be impressed with their efforts.

ARG FIELD DAY BY PETER VAN HORNE, KA6U, SDARG CHAIRMAN

E

very year since 1933 (except for WWII years) amateur radio operators in the U.S. have set up temporary and emergency powered radio stations to practice emergency communications in realistic environments. Providing emergency communication services is one of the primary reasons governments around the world support the Amateur Radio Service. This year W6IM the SDYC Amateur Radio Station participated in Field Day 2014. W6IM was operated 21 of the 24 hour Field Day time period by Rod McLennan W6MWB, Vicki Droz WE6X, and Peter Van Horne KA6U. We operated the station using emergency power provided by a 10 KW generator. The generator allowed operation of the station in a simulated emergency mode using our full 1000 watts of available power. We used our permanent antenna installation and a maximum of two transmitters. Some Field Day stations operate 20 or more transmitters simultaneously on multiple bands running CW, SSB, and Digital Communications at the same time! This year there were over 1600 Field Day stations active in the US. More than 30,000 US Amateur Radio operators participated. This link is an interactive map with information on

Field Day station locations: www.arrl. org/field-day-locator. During our Field Day operation three groups of visitors from outside the club dropped in to observe our operation. The visitors used the Field Day Locator to find our station. One of the visitors was the ARRL Area Director for Southern California and Arizona who was attempting to visit all the Field Day operations in San Diego County! We contacted amateurs in almost every state, Canadian province, and countries from the Netherlands to Africa, Japan and New Zealand. Some of our contacts were with young people who were experiencing their first amateur radio contacts. One of the goals of Field Day is to make contacts with as many stations as possible in a limited time. Because of the effectiveness of the W6IM station, on several occasions we were able to make over 100 contacts per hour with other stations. There are two basic ways to make contacts. One method is called “Hunt and Pounce” where you tune to find a station you haven’t spoken with and you call the station at the same time 10’s of other stations are also trying to call. The second method is called “Running” where you stay on one frequency and let other stations call you. When we decided to operate in the “Running” mode at times we had 50+ stations calling us at the same time. The term used to describe when everyone calls at the same time is a “Pile-up.” We could work stations at a rate of up to 5 per minute under the best conditions.

Rod McLennan W6MWB on 15 Meter SSB

Vicki Droz WE6X “Running” a Pile-Up on 40 Meter SSB

During the contest we used “logging” software running on a computer connected to the HF radio. The logging software automatically monitored the frequency and created log entries for each station we worked. The logging software also checks in real-time for duplicate contacts so we don’t waste time making duplicate contacts that don’t count in the contest. We made about 500 contacts on voice and 200 contacts using CW. We consistently received comments including, “Booming Signal,” “Outstanding Signal Quality,” “Strongest Signal from the West Coast” particularly when Vicki was the operator. We look forward to an expanded Field Day operation next year. We plan to reach out to the community to introduce others to Amateur Radio and the public service over 700,000 US amateur operators provide to their communities.

e want to thank all of you that came out to our 2nd Annual 4th of July Ride around the Bay. We had an INCREDIBLE turnout of over 125 cyclists. We saw many new faces this year which we LOVE to see. We had our Chief of Police, Shelley Zimmerman, 5 tandem bikes, a member of the Challenged Athletes Foundation; Ricky James, our super star George Lindley who came out for his second time this year, and lastly we had the honor of having our Commodore’s wife Lynn Sinks. It was great to see the variety of cyclists. We also want to send a BIG shout out to our Fabulous SAG team, Stacy Szabo, Kathy Rhodes, & Bill Logan. Our colorful & crazy rest stop was worth the ride there! Many have inquired about joining the SDYC Cycling Club and we would love to have you! To join, you can go to the SDYC Website under groups to this website and join: sdyc.org/forms/ cycling_membership. We have many group rides as well as social get togethers. See you on the Road!

hat a fantastic sailing season we have had thus far this summer! I am still licking my wounds having survived the 24th Annual Wooden Boat Festival held at Koehler Kraft on Father’s Day weekend. It was the usual great event. Dave Gardner (#78) had BLUE CHIP II in the water. Chris Frost (#43) was on hand to help CF Koehler teach a seminar on installing a few new laminated ribs in BLUE CHIP. DAWN (#16) was also in the water so the PC was well represented. This year, CF Koehler dedicated the show to Carl Eichenlaub and Bud Caldwell. As the MC for many years running, I confess missing seeing Bud come in and chat with me at the booth. After the show, we hauled DAWN and we are now working on bottom paint, brightness and rigging. Of course, I am anxious to

hat a fantastic 4th of July weekend! We were blessed with wonderful weather and more activities than you could swing a racket at. We had 8 women’s teams who battled it out throughout the day. All the ladies were treated to mimosas and snacks to keep their motivation high. Thanks to Brianna Ruff for helping run the tournament along with our co-fleet captains. Teams included Tracy and Erin, Kristin and Nina, Lisa and Veronica, along with Monica and Emilie. Briana played with Suzy, Maria with Gina, Marcy with Kelly, and Carol with Becca. It’s good to see Becca back on the courts. All the ladies played some excellent matches and entertained the crowd of over 40 spectators watching. Commodore Sinks, S/C Clark, S/C Nichols and R/C Werner were in the crowd cheering the ladies on. The final put Tracy Nichols

get back in the wind and hope we will splash within a week. Today I replaced the spreader leathers and tomorrow will be assembling the boom and mast. I even have a new main halyard to show off. During the festival and for several days after, while I was down working on DAWN, I had a surprising number of people come to me and inquire about buying a PC. One great thing about the show is that people can see PC’s both in and out of the water. They can ask questions of owners and see just how wonderful these classic yachts are. I am hoping to hear from some new owners soon. I spoke briefly with Alex Caldwell who expressed an interest in finding a partner so that he can keep #21 (ONION TRUCK) at the club. Any reader who might be interested can contact Alex via his Roster information or give me a call and I will pass your name on to him. The Kettenburg Regatta, held on June

28th and 29th was the usual success thanks to the efforts of the AMSS and our club. I sailed with CF Koehler on SALLY on Sunday and the weather was perfect. The PC’s made a great showing, with #42, Steve Brownsea leading the pack in ZEST. Congrats to #’s 31, 11, 14, 72, 78 and 66 (in that order).

and Erin Walsh facing Kelly Thomas and Marcy Van Stee across the net. The match ended in a 6-3 victory going to Tracy and Erin. Applause to our 2014 Women’s Champions. Our rackets are lifted high as a big “Thank You” to the Ogle family for graciously allowing us to utilize their beautiful tennis court. A salute to Mary Jones who always shows her enthusiasm at our tournaments. When I asked her what brings her out, she simply said “Coming out and watching the younger guys play” Go girl, go! Kay North’s response was “Just coming out and seeing all the smiling faces of our Tennis Fleet members.” Micah Parzen, our 2013 Tennis Ladder Champion summed it up; he loves the spirit, the sportsmanship is 2nd to none, and it’s always going to be a great time. The men came out strong from the beginning. I knew the Bloody Marys would help everyone play like Rodger and Novak. We had 28 men competing to have their names engraved on our perpetual trophy. Kudos go to Tracy

Nichols for helping run the men’s tournament with all that testosterone around her for 5 hours. Skip and Todd teamed up, Dennis and Gregg, along with Matt and Director Reiter. After we reminded John that he would play better his with shoes on and his Bloody Mary on the table, play improved. Kelly hit with Jesse, David R with Kenyon, along with Toby and Alan. Ken was hitting next to Bill, Jack with Tim, Spencer with Brian, along with Scott and myself teamed together. Defending champions S/C Fink and Bruce hit well against Pete and Rick, while Patrick and Casey rounded out the field. The finals put Gregg Caledonia and Dennis Kuhn against Toby Shannon and Alan Holmes. Dennis and Gregg saved their best for last and came away champions with a 6-0 victory. Congratulations to our Men and Women’s Champions of 2014. Don’t forget the “La Playa Raft Up” and “Tennis Ladder Challenge coming up later this month. See you on the courts.

JUNIORS

JUNIORS

BY JOHN FRETWELL

World University Match Race Champs

L

ast month, SDYC Junior Program alumni and coaches Nevin Snow and AJ Reiter travelled to Trentino, Italy with their Georgetown University team for the 7th World University Match Race Championship. Continuing their impressive string of victories over the past few years, the team prevailed in style. I recently had the pleasure of sitting with Nevin and AJ for a recap of the event, and an update on the global match racing scene. Many people may not be familiar with this event, and there are a couple unusual factors. How does an international event figure in to college sailing? NS: The team that won the ICSA Match Race Nationals in the fall was the team that was invited to the World University Championships this summer. We were lucky enough to win that with our Georgetown team, and went from there. Match racing as a discipline is also new to college sailing in the US. What are your thoughts about the rise of match racing as a popular variation of our sport? NS: It is new to college sailing, but I believe that it added a much needed spark to the keelboat scene in college sailing. The new Match Race Nationals are becoming exponentially more competitive and really emphasizing the tight racing in college sailing. AJ: Match racing demands intense boathandling and tactics that not only dictate where to go on the course but how to affect your opponent enough

to win the race. Tell us about the boats and venue? NS: We sailed J/22’s just like we have here at the club, but the venue is like none we had seen before. Lago di Ledro is a tiny lake high above Lake Garda, no larger than maybe four times the size of La Playa. The dominant breeze blew down the narrow lake but with mountains on both sides. Puffs would come shooting down both sides of the race course, at seemingly random times. It made for close match racing and meant that regardless of how far in the lead you may be, you could never let your opponent separate by much. AJ: We sailed J/22’s, which put us at an advantage because we learned how to match race in the boat at SDYC! Lago di Ledro is undoubtedly the most challenging lake I’ve ever sailed on. To our benefit we had teammates with extensive lake sailing experience that were able to accurately predict the crazy shifts. What was critical in your role as skipper or crew? NS: As skipper I felt like I had to keep my head inside the boat more than ever just to keep us sailing fast through the changing conditions. We sailed

better as I learned to just allow the crew to feed me the information that I otherwise would look for myself. It was a true test of teamwork. AJ: As the main and kite trimmer, my job is to take as much responsibility from the skipper deals with as possible, in order to ensure that he can keep the boat moving fast through the water. On the upwinds that consisted of helping make game plans and determining the next match racing decision (i.e. If he tacks, we will match). On the downwinds my job was to press on the gas pedal and keep the boat moving through the water with the kite. What was the most exciting race or moment in the regatta? NS: Our first race against Sam Gilmour in the round robin (who we eventually faced in the final). We had him beat off the line and around the first weather mark, but being so shifty he jumped us on the downwind and was leading around the final windward mark. On the final downwind we caught up to him so fast that I literally drove our boat into his and caused us to foul him. It’s a bit of a sad exciting moment but it showed us how attentive we really needed to be on that lake, and after that we never lost a race. AJ: The most exciting race for me must have been the first race of the quarterfinals. We were racing Valerio


JUNIORS Galati (ITA) and lost off the start line, and immediately engaged in a high octane tacking duel. We caught him on the first downwind with better tactics and boatspeed, and proceeded to be chased around the course with the other boat hot on our heels. After a gybing duel, we won by about two lengths to spare.

AJ: Joining the Governor’s cup team this year will be a great opportunity to continue SDYC’s success at the event.

You’ve had some great success already as past champions of the Governor’s Cup in 2011. Did that experience help? That’s on deck next week again? How’s it looking this year? NS: That experience of past Governor’s Cups and match races helped enormously. I had raced against the top guys at the regatta before in those past events and having beaten them I had confidence going into the Worlds. This year is shaping up well for us at the Governor’s Cup. AJ and I will be teamed up with our expert bowman Jake Reynolds. Together I believe we have 9 Governor’s Cups under our belts.

I’m real excited to join Jake and Nevin, and believe that we can perform very well and I’m excited to see the results.

Any advice for young sailors looking to check out match racing? NS: I think that diversity in your individual sailing is what helps propel you forward in sailing in general. Match racing and team racing are the two best disciplines to hone your skills, in my opinion. They test you in everything from tactics, boathandling and boatspeed and it is all done in a bit of an intense format, which I think makes you better when it comes time for a big fleet race such as Sabot Nationals. Anyone looking to get into Match Racing should check out some local regattas in SDYC’s J/22s, but also should look for some of Dave Perry’s clinics around the country. AJ: As a young sailor, I was obsessed with getting on the water as much as possible. Training in as many different boats as you can get your hands on is critical. The most important advice I’ve ever received was to keep things simple in your own mind. Keep things calm and organized in the boat and on the race course, and you’ll succeed.
