We love our Dads!


FROM THE COMMODORE COMMODORE - CHARLES SINKS

Greetings: July is here, the Junior Sailing Program is going full bore, the regatta championship season is underway, Buffalo Beach is abuzz with families, food and s’mores. LaPlaya Cove is choc-o-block with raft-ups, “the Iceberg” and laughter. Summer at SDYC is officially in full-swing! We have a long weekend ahead of us and I’m looking forward to three days of uninterrupted marathon fun. Our 4th of July party planners Niza Brown and Becca Rumsey have been scheming for months to plan a memorable Independence Day weekend. Including, but far from a complete, listing of activities: BBB2 -- Beach Blanket Bingo (aka cocktail) followed by the Big Bay Boom, an epic bike ride round SD Bay, our traditional Blood Drive, tent city and a new wrinkle, a fun pursuit race starting from the Main Clubhouse down San Diego Bay, then returning and finishing in at the Main Clubhouse. Check this issue of the Mainsheet for the complete schedule of events. Before we get too immersed into the good time coming up, let’s review some Club business. On behalf of our Board of Directors, I would like to thank each of you who attended our Semi-annual meeting last month. The meeting included the normal introductions and the excellent report on our finances from our Treasurer, John Reiter. The membership attending was provided with an update on our dredging and progress on several fronts with our landlord, the Port of San Diego, as well as progress towards the goals we set in December. Three Bylaw amendments were put before the membership at the meeting, each passing. Two amendments were designed specifically to reinvigorate our Junior Flag membership category (members 21 through 29 years old) and the third to insure our Junior membership category (members < 21 years old who’s parents are not members) had the capacity necessary to keep young members involved in our Junior Program. Special thanks are in order to our Inspector of Elections, Bill Pascoe and his team. Although not called into service at this meeting, our Inspector of Elections makes sure voting members receive ballots, our votes are correct, orderly and transparent. I want to take a moment to recognize and congratulate our SSSS Fleet on a fantastic Senior Sabot Nationals last month. Organizing a regatta is a complex undertaking with a lot of moving parts. Organizing a regatta in cooperation with another Club, (Mission Bay in this case and on Father’s Day weekend), adds a whole new dimension. But our SSSS Fleet pulled it off without a hitch – and they somehow managed to coordinate with the Cruising Fleet to be at Mission Bay to cheer on the home team. I am always amazed by our group of “slightly crazy,” Sexy, Senior Sabot Sailing devotees. The aches, pains and bruises that little boat can inflict on a grown person’s body are impossible to explain – but after a full weekend of Sabot sailing, the best analogy I can give a non-Sabot sailing adult is; imagine a very sore hind end, your joints feel like they have been whacked by a broomstick, you’re soaking wet with a few new cuts, scrapes and bruises. Heck, depending on how the weekend went, perhaps one might even be sporting an “adjusted ego” (that one could go either way)…regardless, you loved every minute of it! A cold beverage, good friends, some post race story telling and popping Advil like M&M’s usually does the trick (I said they were just a “little crazy” didn’t I?) to get a “non-kid” body feeling normal again. Good fun! The SDYC’s SSSS love and passion for So Cal’s funky little pram is undeniable. Congratulations SSSS on a job well done and a fantastic regatta. Good sailing all! With all of the business now behind us, it’s time to focus on an enjoyable summer. The Etchells Worlds in Newport, RI will be wrapped up by the time you read this – I hope to report a good result by several SDYC members competing in a hypercompetitive fleet. We have several junior teams competing in a number of Junior US Sailing Championships…keep an eye out on the Junior Program eblast for the latest results or check out the US Sailing website to follow Team SDYC. Our J-22 Fleet is cranked up with match race, team race and Adult Learn to Sail programs as well as just plain ‘ol fun day sailing. Check out the J-22 Fleet. There is a TON of stuff going on with this Fleet and you can get involved for an entire year, including access to the boats, for basically the cost of a winch handle! A ridiculous bargain. The immediate issue before us is 4th of July fun. It’s a long weekend so pace yourself. Whether you like biking, bingo, scavenger hunts, sailboat racing, dancing, music, s’mores, bocce ball, movies, beer-tasting, tennis, raft-ups, swim meets, barbeque, living in a tent or giving blood, this will be a weekend to remember. Tent City, the pool and the deck, and the La Playa raft-up will be the hot-spots. Terry and our fantastic team at SDYC, get ready for “Hurricane 4th of July” she is blowing in! Have fun everybody! God Bless the USA and the men and women who protect her. We’ll see you around the Club. Good sailing,

Chuck Sinks, Commodore

MATCH RACING By KAREN BUTLER, CHIEF UMPIRE Photos by Ian Trotter Area G/H/J/L Qualifier for the 2014 US Match Racing Championship for the Prince of Wales Bowl

On the weekend of June 14 - 15 San

Diego Yacht Club was proud to host the second of two International Sailing Federation (ISAF) Grade 3 Area G/H/J/L qualifiers for the 2014 US Match Racing Championship. The Championship is the Prince of Wales Bowl which will be held October 2 - 5 at St Francis Yacht Club. In order for skippers to receive points toward their Match Race ranking, ISAF requires organizing authorities to meet certain criteria. Events are ranking on a scale of 1 (America’s Cup, World Match Race Tour, etc.) though 5 (one day, 4 boat affairs) and skippers receive ranking points through a complex formula that takes into consideration the difficulty of the event and how well they did. Most SDYC events, this one included, are ISAF Grade 3 and require the following criteria: Boats shall - be of the same design, and equal performance. - have a minimum 5.9 m LOA (19.4 feet) - capable of carrying spinnakers. - have a minimum crew of three Competitors - A minimum of eight skippers must be entered. - At least 30% of the skippers must be a different nationality or travel more than 500 km to the event venue. - The maximum average crew weight is 87.5 kg (192.9 lbs) Race Management - there shall be a minimum of two days scheduled for racing. - all matches shall be umpired. - at least two umpires must be ISAF

recognized International Umpires. - the notice of race and sailing instructions shall be based on the current ISAF standard The US Match Racing Championship (USMRC), often referred to as the Prince of Wales Bowl (or the POW), is a competition between yacht clubs, with each entry representing his or her respective yacht club. US Sailing divides the country into eleven areas, and then divides those areas into four groups (A/B/C; D/F; G/H/J/L; and E/K) for the match racing championship. Southern California falls within the geographical jurisdiction of Area J so is part of the Area G/H/J/L grouping, the largest of the groupings covering more

robin 2 on Saturday. Ryan Davidson of Balboa YC was in first with eight wins and no losses followed closely by Nicole Breault of StFYC in second with seven wins and one loss. Nicole was followed by John Horsch of Treasure Island SC and Will Peterson of Cal YC in a two way tie for third both with four wins and four losses. On Sunday Ryan continued his winning streak and finished the weekend in first with fourteen wins and no losses. Ryan, along with crew Brandon Folkman and Mark Folkman will receive the invitation to the USMRC to be held at StFYC. Horsch came on strong on Sunday winning all of his matches to end up with ten wins and four losses,

or less the western third of the U.S. plus Alaska and Hawaii. Regatta Chair and Principal Race Officer Summer Greene and her race committee team efficiently ran two full round robins in the club’s eight J/22s for an exciting weekend of match racing down by the city front near the Star of India. It was a beautiful weekend for match racing, sunny skies with winds mostly in the 8 to 10 kt range blowing steady between 250 and 260 degrees throughout the weekend. The competition was stiff. Summer managed to complete round robin 1 and one flight of round

while Nicole had a mixed day. Nicole had three wins and three losses on Sunday finishing the weekend with ten wins and four losses resulting in her losing the tie breaker with Horsch for second place. There were not any what we sailors refer to as marshmallows in this competition, and at the end of the weekend there were a total of two (2) two way ties, and one (1) three way tie making for exciting match racing! The West Coast is becoming a hot bed for match racing as evidenced by the number of entries submitted to the host clubs of the two area qualifiers. St. Francis Yacht Club hosted the

IN THE SPOTLIGHT first of the two area qualifiers back in April. Both clubs easily filled their eight entry per Qualifier maximum and had to turn away teams. The eight entries from SDYC Qualifier came from eight different yacht clubs and three Areas (St. Francis YC, Treasure Is. YC, and San Francisco YC representing Area G; Cal YC, Balboa YC, Del Rey YC, and San Diego YC representing Area J, and Waikiki YC representing Area H). During the trophy presentation Bruce Stone, the US Sailing Area GHJL Representative for the USMRC, thanked the club for hosting the event and praised all in attendance for making the Area Qualifier a great event and making match racing on the west coast a success. He said that between StFYC and SDYC there were a total of sixteen available slots and approximately twenty-four entries were submitted. He also informed us that Area GHJL was the only US Sailing Area Group that hosted two Area Qualifiers with the maximum eight entries each. Finally, I would like to thank all those who helped make this event happen; including, but not limited to, Summer race committee team, my umpire team, club members who loaned their Whalers for use as umpire boats, club members who housed umpires and competitors, and Vice Commodore John Laun for presenting the trophies.

LIPTON CUP CHALLENGE

THE 100TH CHALLENGE FOR THE SIR THOMAS LIPTON CUP BY BARRY AULT

W

hen I walk into the SDYC lobby I am stunned by the beauty and craftsmanship embodied in the Lipton Cup. Looking closely, you can find a record of 110 years of competition including the names of the yachts which have won. These champions have ranged from classic beauties to purpose built racing machines. The large majority of the competing boats were club member’s boats brought together under one handicap rule or another. I am drawn to the boats of old that came from the craftsman’s hand rather than the mold but it is fascinating to see how the clubs and the designers and the rules mixed together to win the Lipton Cup. Detroit, the winner of the first two challenges, was a stripped out racing thoroughbred that defied the rules calling for interior accommodations. The winners of that early era were similar with gaff rigs and long overhangs. Following Detroit, the Cup was won by Mischief II, Trilby (3 wins), Gretchen (3), Aeolus (2), Genevieve, Galliano, Mischief I, and Lady Betty. 1923 signaled the exit of the gaff and the arrival of the fast R boat which reeled off 6 wins in a row; Angelia (3), Patricia, Pirate and Debra. The International 6 meter May-Be broke through in 1929 followed by Caprice. 1931 was marked by the passing of Sir Thomas Lipton and the lone Cup victory by a PC, Scamp II. In 1932, the deed of gift was changed eliminating handicaps and making it a boat for boat event. The 6 meters extended their string for a while longer with Caprice, Gallant, Pirate, Mystery, Lanai and Rebel and then came the bigger boats Angelita (8 meter) and

Sally II (10 Meter). Few boats made it through the scavenging of WWII and in 1946 new, yet still classic designs began winning including PCCs Ray, Antigua, Ballerina and sloops Sparkle and Bongo. Overall, however, the 20 years following the war were dominated by the Cal 32 and featured the winningest Lipton Cup boat of all time, Escapade (’48, ’50, ’51, ’53, ’54, ‘55). Other Cal 32 winners were: Andale (2), Amorita (2), Cholita (2) and Altamar. Then in 1965, out of the past, came the 1925 Q class Cotton Blossom II. This classic era played out with sloops Ingenue, Emily II, Carousel, Hallelujah, Chimara, Brushfire and the not so classic Tomahawk II and America Jane. 1973 saw another rule change to the “Gran Prix” International Offshore Rule with its accompanying technology and design arms race. Not surprisingly, this boiled down to a shootout between designers (including locals Doug Peterson, Bruce Nelson and John Reichel). These boats were surely not “classic” but were powerful and fast. Wins were passed around between; Invader, Vendetta, Tin Woodsman, America Jane II, Windmiller, Dogpatch, Free Enterprise, Flambouyant, Brooke Ann, Big Wig, Crackerjack, Reliance (2), Electra, Saeta, Cadenza, Camouflage and Quintessence. One design racing, like NASCAR, always seems to produce exciting events so in 1992, with clubs tired of racing dissimilar boats, the Shock 35 was selected to be “the” Lipton Cup boat. Racing was close and “the winners were”; Bold Forbes, Buttercup (4), Shillelagh, Wild Thing, Hot Spur (2) and Kathmandu. In 2002 “the” boat was changed to the newer J105. Under the same rules, racing was again close with winners: Pholly, Nemesis, Bold Forbes, Wings (4) and J-OK. Since 2011, SDYC has hosted the event in identically prepared J105s in a round-robin format where teams rotate from boat to boat keeping the playing field level. With an emphasis on the crews’ performance, no boat

8 • J U LY 2 014 M ai n s h e e t • w w w. s d yc .o r g

can be said to have won but the competition between clubs is as keen as ever. So far the score under this format is SDYC 2 wins and California YC 1. The real winners, as they have been for 110 years, are the sailors and the Lipton Cup Challenge which continues to reign as one of the premier regattas on the pacific coast.

San Diego Police Chief Shelley Zimmerman brought down the house!

The

June Women’s Luncheon was an extremely special one. San Diego Police Chief and SDYC member Shelley Zimmerman spoke to more than 100 women in attendance. Chief Zimmerman lit up the room with her wonderful stories about her career (From Undercover Cop to Chief of Police), impressed us with her knowledge of San Diego issues, and entertained us with her infectious humor. We had great fun and learned a lot at the same time! Chief Zimmerman shared some stories about growing up in the suburbs of Cleveland and attending Ohio State University, including playing in the Marching Band. Then we learned how she visited San Diego and decided to move here. She saw the Police Department was hiring and the rest is history. She has worked many of the San Diego Police Department’s patrol commands. Some of her prior

and fun is kicking off for Community programs Committee (CpC)! By the time you read this, we will have hosted 6 Military Appreciation Nights. What is this event you may ask? In collaboration with the Armed Services YMCA, we welcome the Wounded, Ill and Injured military to an evening at SDYC, including a cruise on the Bay thanks to gracious volunteer skippers and crew. This is followed by a great meal and music on the deck. It’s every Wednesday evening during

assignments have included Vice, Narcotics, Internal Affairs, MultiCultural Community Relations Office, the Mayor’s Executive Protection Detail, the Narcotics Task Force, Field Lieutenant, Neighborhood Policing and the Department’s Liaison to numerous organizations. And she assisted in the security planning for several large events in San Diego such as the Super Bowl, and Republican National Convention. Thirty-one years later she has been selected to be our Chief of Police. Chief Zimmerman shared a story about meeting Bob Hope…hilarious. I encourage you to ask her to tell it to you. Clearly she shares her sense of humor and timing with another former resident of a Cleveland suburb, Mr. Hope. Even while we enjoyed many light moments in the Chief’s career, we also learned about a number of important resources to San Diego residents. Crimestoppers allows citizens to become aware of criminal activity in the area and report activity. Their website is: www.sdcrimestoppers. org. Another important neighborhood resource is Nextdoor.com where you can learn about what is happening in your neighborhood. You can sign up at www.nextdoor.com. An additional

resource that provides crime prevention information and crime mapping is www.sandiego.gov/police. At our Luncheon Chief Zimmerman also made generous donations to our Raffle to benefit Operation: Holiday Helping Hand. (We hold a raffle at each of our events and every penny goes to O: HHH. Last year the SDYC Women’s Events raised more than $8000 for O: HHH.) Chief Zimmerman donated two Tours of the San Diego Police Department Headquarters, which will include prisoner processing and communications where SDPD takes on average 1.3 million calls a year. Lucky winners Phyllis Braun and Karen Busch will each be able to take a group of friends on their tours with Chief Zimmerman. Thank you Chief!

the Beer Can Races. So far the weather is cooperating and Club members are stopping by the tables to thank these military members and welcome them to SDYC. Please continue welcoming our visitors and their family members on the deck Wednesday evenings! The 4th of July Blood Drive has been a success once again. Thank you to all who dropped by the bloodmobile on the 4th to make a donation. The Fleet that gave the most has earned the prize of Bloody Mary’s on the deck! We hope to have beat last year’s total, and will update you on those stats. Many of you know that CpC proudly oversees the local Sea Scouts Charter, Ship 1886 for SDYC. The Sea Scouts meet every Monday at 6 PM in the

Jessop Room - adults and youth are invited to stop on by and see what the Sea Scouts are all about. They are competing in the Sea Scout Koch Cup in late June and then they will be charting a course for Catalina as part of their Summer Sailing Adventure in July. First Aid Class: Red Cross First Aid and CPR Class will be held on Saturday, July 26th from 8:30 AM to 5 PM in the Jessop Room. The cost is $50 (includes lunch) for this is a 2 year certification.

HELPS MEDICAL MISSION: SDYC MEMBERS HELPING THE COMMUNITY BY JOANNE O’DEA

Each

year, several SDYC members participate in a Medical Mission to Guatemala, providing an enduring program of practical, social, and spiritual value to the people in the developing world through a system of partnership and mutual responsibility. Specifically, Dr. Asa Morton leads a team of volunteers who provide eye care and surgery to people who would not have had the opportunity to receive the treatments they need. Members of the “Eye Team” include Vira Villarreal, S/C Ken Bertino, Dr. Kelly Keefe, and Jim Seaman, just to name a few. Dr. Morton got involved in HELPS 20 years ago, while doing his fellow ship in facial plastic surgery with an emphasis on eyelids at the University of Michigan. He was looking for a way to give back to humanity and found this medical mission. This is a comprehensive medical mission where

the team creates operating rooms in a local clinic or hospital, sets up triage, and cares for people who line up days before seeking treatment, walking miles from their homes, all at no cost to the patient. Treatments that are offered by Dr. Morton and his team include cataract surgery, burn care, trauma and infection, specializing in tissue in and around the eyes. As Dr. Morton put it, treating the eyes for injury or disease is the perfect fit for helping in the developing world - no general anesthesia is required, surgeries are quick and require little recovery time. Patients come in with cataracts or other injuries that are affecting their eyesight, and are leaving with their sight restored - life changing treatments that allow them to tend their farms and provide for their families.

over most of the logistics of ensuring that the medicines and equipment make it from San Diego to Guatemala, mostly donated by supporters and partners of HELPS. Each year the team includes high school students, new residents, nurses, translators, etc whose lives are transformed as a result of caring for those that line up for days seeking treatment. The team members come back to their homes here in the US, and give back to their community here as a result of the lives that they touched while on the medical mission. Going back each year has given the team members a better understanding of the needs of the indigent population, feeling and experiencing what it is like to transform lives. When asked about why he participates in HELPS Medical Mission, S/C Ken Bertino replied “There are lots of thoughts that come to me about my 3 missions to Guatemala. Going there the first time no one can really tell you what to expect. The country is so poor, 3rd world would be a stretch. Out in the country side, mud homes, dirt roads no drinkable water, trash everywhere. I approached Asa in 2010 about going down with his group. I have very little to offer as far as medical skills nor do I speak Spanish. He told me I couldn’t cut it. To work


CLUB NEWS the hours, I would fold like a house of cards. I now know what he was talking about. I ended up in the kitchen with 6 or 7 other poor souls. We were tasked with feeding around 100 people, 3 meals per day. When we got there, there was no kitchen. We had to build it - refrigeration, stoves/ovens, prep areas wash areas, pantry storage, oh, and, no potable water. All water came in 5 gallon jugs that we used for every need in cooking, drinking. EVERYTHING has to be soaked before using or consuming in a chemical/biocleaner. Every person washes their hands in this brew before entering the kitchen each & every time. We develop menus from the food that has been ordered and delivered by the local HELPS people. We prep, all the food chop, peel, cook and plate. We clean everything, pots & pans service ware you name it. Clean the tables, chairs, floors, everything. Disease is everywhere. We cannot afford to let anyone get sick because of our kitchen or food prep. Why you ask?

WHY are we helping these wonderful people that have so little. They are so very grateful for everything. Their smiles and gracias is all I need to want return next year. The medical team comes through the food line and as the week goes on they are more and more tired. They sit down and eat. They get their strength back and their smiles return along with the laughter. They actually thank the cooks for the good food (are you kidding GOOD)! The reasons for doing this more than once in your life: 6 hour bus ride to and from on the worst roads imaginable, work 15+ hours a day doing things you never do at home, sleep on uncomfortable cots for a few hours a night, Shower what shower, bugs! Boy are there bugs. Food, not so good.”

conditions were already near survival mode. As a result, most everyone was late at the boat-end favored start. Bersch/Shenstone won the start but forced Bundy/Hanseler and the other leaders right to the favored side with more pressure and a good shift. Tight sailing! Bersch/Shenstone stayed right while the remaining pack went left. The right paid but Bersch/Shenstone missed the port tack lay and capsized while trying to execute a jibe takedown in a stinger at the leeward mark. As the group approached the leeward mark, so did a large squall. The first two boats made it around and immediately tacked before the wind hit. The next three rounded and stayed on port, while mayhem developed amongst the boats still coming downwind when

In April, twenty International 14’s sailed in the Pacific Rim Championships hosted by Kaneohe Yacht Club. The competition, camaraderie and sailing conditions were some of the finest experienced in recent history. The hospitality of the club and the generously poured and consumed Mai Tais were as always fantastic. Most of the out of towners experienced two fabulous days of practice before the regatta in winds of around 20 knots. Many boats experienced minor breakdowns during practice as a result of a long winter lay-up but were ready to go when racing started. Notable attendees were skiff sailor extraordinaire Cameron McDonald from Australia, Canadians Jason Lemieux, Greg Loffree, former Canadian 49er FX Campaigner Lauren Laventure, UK nay American Jamie Ried and old timers Alan Laflin and Eric Ahrens. Lawrence Henderson and Kurt Schmidt made a reappearance and you could see the smiles of Seattle newcomers Brennan Ashton and Zach Faorcade from anywhere on the bay! Sadly, Chris Rutz sustained a hand injury before the event and was unable to sail, but he came anyway to watch, learn, support the junior clinic and just plain enjoy being with the fleet in Hawaiian sunshine! Racing on Day 1 was scheduled to start at 1300 but didn’t get going until about 1335 as the race committee waited for several boats to make the line. It was unpleasant waiting in 1620 knots (anybody feel sorry for us?) but it was good to see so many make the start. Race 1, a two lap windward leeward, was heavy pin favored at the start with

winds of 16-18 knots. Steve Goodson and Alan Diercks played the right side of the beat and rounded first followed closely by Kris Bundy and Jamie Hanseler. The pack followed 4 boat lengths back led by Brad Ruetenik/ Garrett Brown. The two leaders enjoyed a big puff out to the right while the pack had only 12 knots or so at the mark allowing them to stretch to a serious lead by the leeward mark. The second beat was all the way right to the reef with a tack on the lay. Bundy/ Hanseler held their lead up wind and down and finished first. Race 2, another two lapper started in about 20 knots after several of the finishers in the first race received an “OWF” – on the water finish. Despite the flat, warm water of Kaneohe Bay

it started pouring rain and blowing 30 plus knots with a 40 degree shift right. 8 boats finished the race with the remainder scoring OWF or DNF. Canadians Greg Loffree and Zac Baum rounded in the squall and set their kite only to end with a spectacular crash and splash! Veteran Hendo Henderson claims he has never gone faster in a 14 with his kite up. Fortunately the water was warm, nobody was injured, no turtles were harmed and there was no significant boat damage before the racing was binned for the day. The day ended with two boats tied for 1st and 3 boats tied for 3rd; a harbinger of the tight racing to come. Day 2 started with the scheduled


ON THE RACE COURSE Junior Sailing Clinic that is the heart and soul of the event and the basis of its sponsorship. 12 enthusiastic juniors in their early teens showed up to learn about skiffs and have their first opportunity to take a ride and trapeze on and, in many cases, drive a 14 foot skiff. This is a favorite of many of the participants who get to promote junior sailing and the future of the class. Chris Rutz generously donated his boat for use in the dry land trapezing, tacking and gybing clinic. Most of the sailing was done three up in winds to 8-14 knots. Perfect to teach the kids to sail a skiff with great rides both upwind and down. Day two racing immediately followed the clinic in 10-14 knots with lots of streaky puffs and holes. Day 2 had 4 races with particularly tough sailing downwind. The racing was tight with many lead changes not only in the front of the fleet but also throughout the fleet! Day 2 ends with Gleeson/ Sjostedt in first with 17 points followed by Bundy/Hanseler with 19 and Ruetenik/Brown with 21, Bersch/ Shenstone with 24 and Goodson/ Diercks rounding out the top 5 with 31. Day 3 has three races planned and starts with the lightest winds of the

FINN PACIFIC COAST CHAMPIONSHIPS BY DIRECTOR MIKE DORGAN Photos by Matt Dorgan

On

June 7-8, the San Diego Finn Fleet and San Diego Yacht Club hosted the Finn Pacific Coast Championships in conjunction with the One Design Weekend. A total of 11 competitors from various fleets up and down the coast made their way to San Diego for the regatta, where they were greeted with beautiful, sunny weather and 8-12 knot breeze. This is the first Finn regatta sailed out of San Diego Yacht Club in more than 20 years, and Race Officer Bruce Greene did a great job

regatta from a direction further left than most visiting sailors have ever experienced. Scores were tightening and it was clear that anyone could win this regatta! The wind was beginning to shift persistently right and the fleet was mixed up with many of the regatta leaders in the left and the leaders coming from the right. Going into the final race, it is a very close no throw out series with Ruetenik/Brown in first with 28 points, Gleeson/Sjostedt in second with 29 and Bundy/Hanseler in third with 32. Any one of the three has a shot at winning overall going into the final race. Competition elsewhere in the standings remains equally tight. For the final Race 9 the wind has gone right and built to 10-12 knots. The Committee has not shifted the line or the course making the boat favored and the course skewed. The first start results in the first general recall of the regatta. The intensity remains high! The second one goes off with an individual recall with a couple boats over and many more wondering, “should I go back too?” Bersch/ Shenstone lead all the way around and take the win pushed around the entire course by Bundy/Hanseler who take a second but cannot get two coordinating the Finns as they sailed on the same course as the J/105, J/120 and Etchell classes. Seven races were sailed over the two day weekend and in the end it was Olympic-Campaigner Philip Toth from Marina Del Rey who won first overall, with SDYC Director Mike Dorgan coming in at second overall. Jim Hecht from MBYC rounded out the podium finishing third overall. The competitors enjoyed beer and chips after both races with a wonderful Saturday night BBQ hosted at the Point Loma home of Rich and Kathy Wright. The Finn dinghy has been an Olympic Class since the 1952 games in Helsinki, representing the Men’s Heavy Weight Dinghy. The local SD Finn Fleet is on the rise with ten active boats sailing between SDYC and MBYC and loaner boats available for anyone wanting to

boats between them and Ruetenik/ Brown who take 4th and the regatta win. LaVenture/Lemieux finish 3rd and Henderson/Fabiansson finish 5th both showing just how much they have improved during the course of this regatta. Gleeson/Sjostedt finish the final race in 7th, which was good enough for third overall. Bersch/ Shenstone end 4th overall and Twardowski/Lazarro who have a very strong last day gain 20 points on the boat in front and finish 5th overall. The 2014 Pacific Rim Championship came down to the last race. It was close and fair racing throughout but that is really only a part of what makes this event so great. Kaneohe Bay is a spectacular venue for skiff sailing with warm winds and emerald green and azure blue water. The competition is tough but fair and friendly. Racers freely share information in a daily post race debrief along with the requisite Mai Tai’s of course! Those who have sailed here can’t wait to come back. Those who have never made it before, stop reading this long report and start planning to come in two years when Kaneohe Yacht Club will hopefully invite us to come back. sail with the fleet and/or considering buying a boat.

ON THE RACE COURSE US KITE RACING NATIONALS BY NICO LANDAUER

17

Formula and 13 Kite Foilers descended upon Long Beach for the 2014 Kite Racing Nationals over the weekend of June 6 - 8. Light to moderate winds provided enough breeze to get in 14 races for the formula fleet (with Friday included) and 9 races for the foilers. The course was in Long Beach Harbor between the Belmont Pier and Alamitos Bay jetty, inside the breakwater. Putting heavy pressure on reigning champ, Johnny Heineken, Nico Landauer proved to excel in the light conditions, while Johnny was in his groove with a tad more breeze and his kite not “falling from the sky,”

Johnny obviously enjoys the windier conditions of SF Bay and Nico’s home base of San Diego give him more light air training, so go figure. The talk of the beach in the Kitefoiling world was the new Carfino foil set up, which looks very modern and capable. Mango Carifino has jumped back in the game after a lengthy sabbatical, and an excited following has thrown lots of orders in his direction, but it’s performance is still out with the jury.

ON THE RACE COURSE SNIPE HERB SHEAR CLASSIC BY ERIC HEIM Photos by Judy Tillson

The

2014 Herb Shear Classic was held on May 17-18 at Mission Bay Yacht Club in San Diego, CA. 23 Teams took to the course to compete for top honors while 3 Classic Snipes were on display all weekend as a bit of eye candy. Everyone was glad that the hot and dry Santa Ana conditions abated for the event and gave fire crews all over Southern California a welcome change in fortunes as well. Wind direction was a very shifty southwest all weekend. About 10-12 knots on Saturday and 7-10 on Sunday made sure that everyone had their chance at the front of the fleet at some point (even if it was short-lived before Randy Lake and Kate Sheahan flew by). The eventual winners scored 5 wins out of 7 races, discarding a third to finish with a total of 7 pts! Fleet 495 stayed true to the Snipe Class motto of Serious Sailing and Serious Fun. After racing on Saturday, everyone made the trek to the Krebs home in Point Loma for a celebration in remembrance of sailing legend and Snipe World Champion Earl Elms. The atmosphere was fantastic with sailors joining fishermen and many other groups who told their favorite Earl stories and enjoyed tons of fresh seafood, as well as hoisting plenty of beers in memory of our hero. Big thanks to John Fretwell (District Governor) who organized the regatta, Pete Hunter who served as PRO, Jim Graham for helping to incorporate the Classics into the format, and Eric and Carolyn Krebs for hosting the party. Congrats to Team Lake/Sheahan on a solid win. Maybe you guys can put on a clinic before the PCC’s in July at ABYC to keep the scores a little closer. One more note, the Snipe Western Hemisphere and Orient Championship

will be held at SDYC September 5 – 12. Fifty teams will be competing from over 12 countries including Cuba, Japan, Brazil, US, Canada, Mexico, just to name a few. Stay tuned for more details on how you can participate in the on-shore festivities, but in the meantime visit www. snipewho.org

RACE COMMITTEE BY SUSI GRAFF Photo by Tiffany Billings

The year is half over and boy have

we been busy! From January through June the Race Committee has been involved in 34 events (for a total of 70 days of service). This equates to 5, 138 volunteer hours in the 6-month period. Events have included:

2 World Qualifiers (Etchells, Snipes) 2 National Qualifiers (High School Pacific Coast Championships, Sears Qualifier) 1 National (High School Nationals) 2 Offshore Races (Islands Race, Puerto Vallarta Race) 2 US Sailing events (Safety at Sea seminar, US Sailing Leadership Forum) 6 Judge Workshops

Looking forward we estimate 48 Race Committee days for the second half of 2014 requiring another 3,800 hours of volunteer help. Upcoming events include another National event (420s), 2 Continental Championships (Snipe Western Hemisphere/Orientals and the Kiteboard North Americans), a Continental Qualifier (Snipe Pan American Qualifier) and 2 flagship events (the International Masters and the Lipton Cup). And we can’t forget the Hot Rum series, Beneteau Cup, J-Fest and the monthly One-Design Weekends! So when all is added up the Race Committee will have participated in 118 days of service to racers and the club, for almost 9,000 hours of volunteer effort in 2014*. And according to rate tables, a volunteer in California is worth $26.34/hour, so the Race Committee will have contributed $237,060 in effort to the club. WOW! On another note, you’ll never know

what you might see while working on the Race Committee. During the Star Rollins Bowl last month, a whale decided to join the competitors! First spotted by the windward mark set boat, the whale made its way down the course along with the Stars. * Statistics compiled by Waterfront Director Jeff Johnson

STAR ROLLINS BOWL BY MARK BUTLER

Photos by Mark Butler The 52nd annual Star Rollins Bowl was held at SDYC on the weekend of May 31/June1. We had a small but strong fleet of ten enthusiastic Star sailors including two former world champions. Several teams came in from out of town, rolling in Saturday morning towing their Star boats. With everyone’s help masts were raised, boats were splashed and ready for the weekend’s racing. It was a stunningly beautiful weekend with sparkling clear skies, Finback whales swimming through the course, and steady westerlies of 8 to 12 knots

allowing the crews to droop hike throughout the weekend. Susi Graf and Jim Person alternated days as PRO, and with their great race committee team were able to get in five good races for the regatta. After a fun day of racing on Saturday everyone put their boats away for the day and headed on up to Ruth Rollins’ house for the annual Rollins Bowl party/dinner that Ruth graciously hosts every year. On behalf of the San Diego Bay Star Fleet I would like to thank Ruth for her continuing support of the Fleet over the years. Sunday morning MBYC’s Kyle Henehan with crew Jeremy Davidson showed up to join the fun in Star #6840 to represent the “Classic” Fleet. Due to missing the first day of racing they finished last overall but placed sixth in race 4 so were quite pleased with their endeavors. After racing on Sunday

the trophy presentation was held on the veranda outside the bar where everyone drank beer, ate appetizers, and socialized. Local boy and former World Champion George Szabo with crew Craig Moss topped the podium and were awarded the Rollins Bowl perpetual, followed in second by SDYC member and former World Champion Eric Doyle with crew Payson Infelise. Rounding out the podium in third was SDYC Director Mike Dorgan with son Matt as crew. A shout out goes to 7th place finisher Jacqueline Campbell with husband Andrew as crew for helming her first Star boat regatta (Andrew placed 2nd in the 2013 Star Worlds). Last but not least, many thanks go to Kirsten Hecht of Sailing Supply for arranging for Zhik to donate the trophies for the event.

FLEETS, ETC. WILLIAM (BILLY) BENNETT (1965-2014) William (Billy) Bennett (1965-2014) The sailing community lost a great friend and sailor on 17 June 2014 after a tragic accident. Billy Bennett was a skipper’s crew. With a competitive spirit who hated to lose and his sharp eye for details both on and off the boat, he was instrumental in getting many top programs to the podium. He was known by so many because he had the uncanny ability to excel in many different classes and types of boats. Billy was involved with sailing starting at a very young age. His father, Pete Bennett, a great sailor and sail maker, along with his mother, Sally would bring Billy to Star regattas as a young child, which set the stage for Billy’s future. A very talented athlete, he was an All-County quarterback and baseball player. However it was sailing that won his heart. Billy’s sentimental favorite boat was the Star. He competed for many years at the top culminating in two 5th place finishes in the Star Worlds. He was a top contender in the Etchells 22 and has been a part of the Jaguar Series in Miami since it’s founding. He was on the winning team for the Etchells 22 Worlds in 2000. He was also on the winning Boat of the Week for Key West Race Week 2000. Bill was named to the SDYC Honor Roll in 2001. A scratch golfer, Billy liked to play with numerous members when in town. He took his golf more serious then his sailing. When he was shooting a stellar round he would say he should work on getting his tour card for the Seniors Tour. Billy was always full of stories and his great memory never spared anyone from becoming the center of one of them. This also made for Billy being a great asset as a crew. He would remember all the rig tune numbers and what the local weather conditions were in the past. Moving on to more coaching in recent years his great eye off the boat and support for his team were second to none. He called it like it was, which might not have been popular but it was always on the mark and helped to bring the team to the front of the pack. He was the most loyal sports fan for all the San Diego pro and college teams. He attended as many games as he could and caught the ones on TV he missed. After a long day of sailing he loved to have a “Billy Night” which was comprised of watching football, enjoying a few beers, and most of all being with his friends. He will be long remembered by his family and friends, for his love of their families and children. He loved children; especially around Christmas time he would dress up as Santa Claus and come over to spread his cheer. He is survived by his loving wife Leslie, brothers John and Michael, and sister Cathy Hervey. Sail on my friend, you touched so many lives and will be forever in our thoughts.

USTA pro Rudy Rodriguez led an amazing clinic. The adults played followed up by the kids. Rudy went over different strokes and strategies with all of us to make our games more effective. Short games and exercises after let the players implement what

they had just learned. Dean Sutter dusted off his racket and was so impressed by the clinic he immediately joined the Fleet and is buying a paver. We had over 30 players who enjoyed this annual event. Mark your calenders for the August 9th and 10th Tennis Fleet Raft Up. The last few years have been a great time to meet new members, eat, drink, and be merry on the water in La Playa. Look for our e-mails to keep up on all the latest activities.

younger members is one of the Angler’s Groups objectives. The first weekend in June, we had the opportunity to share our love of fishing with 20 children and grandchildren of Club members. We met at the guest dock with plenty of bait and tackle; and with a little bit of instruction on rigging a rod with a hook, sinker and bait, the kids were off fishing. Several different species of fish were landed including Black Croker, Butter Lip Perch, Spotted and Bay Bass, just to name a few. Both the kids and the angler members had a great time. Special thanks go out to all the kids who came out to fish and Neal Johnson for organizing the morning activity and obtaining the bait. Mark Moffat and Neal’s efforts to pump up over 100 Ghost Shrimp from the bay really made the day successful. If you are out

If you are reading this and you are not a member of the Crusing Fleet and want to enjoy the special programs we have at our dinner or the other events, you should join our Fleet for only $50/year!

The magic of summer begins and the activities of the Cruising Fleet continues with our informative after dinner programs and our exciting cruises. This month on July 15th our dinner speaker will be Dan McAllister, San Diego County Treasurer-Tax Collector. Here is your chance to ask some of those questions you have always wanted to ask. Several of our members have attended Dan’s talks before and were very impressed! Hopefully, you will join us for an always great dinner, social hour and after dinner program. Please sign up on line. Our Cruise this month is to Chula Vista beginning on Friday July 18th. Friday we will all enjoy cocktails and dinner together at the Chula Vista Yacht Club.

breakfast on the docks with fresh perked coffee! That afternoon an Expedition to the Living Coast Discovery Center will be scheduled for those interested. That evening our cocktails will be aboard Chula Vista’s own tall ship “Bill of Rights” which should be a lot of fun! Sunday we all depart for home. All Cruising Fleet Members are invited and either come by boat or drive down. In August we have a great three day trip planned for Santa Barbara by train. We’ll all leave Santa Fe station here in San Diego on the Surfliner for three days of wine tasting tours by bus, shopping, museums, great dinners at some of Santa Barbara’s finest restaurants, and dinner at the Santa Barbara Yacht Club.

MODEL YACHT FLEET

the tradition for another year. Rather than abandon our late-spring pilgrimage to Pine Valley, we decided to embrace some previously peripheral activities in lieu of model yacht racing. Our “signature,” non-negotiable tradition, the steak BBQ, became the focal point of our festivities. Hiking, biking and target-practice took the place of race-course tactics. Whether it was horseshoes, darts, ping-pong or skeet shooting, no one was left without an opportunity to participate in a fun activity that made them forget they ever heard of model yachting. While we hope for adequate rainfall for next year’s event, we made the best of it this year and nobody left disappointed or hungry.

Back at the club we are well into our summer Sunset Series racing every Friday evening, and look forward with anticipation to the Independence Day regatta. Consequently, as the racing season progresses, the competition for the annual High Point awards is heating up. Please see results below. 1) Larry Adams 86 2) Sandy Purdon 80 3) George Szabo 76 4) John Landon 74 5) John Rudderham 68 With many other skippers nipping at the leaders’ heels and lots of racing left in this year’s season, the coming months promise to be full of tightlycontested, fun-filled competition.

For the first time since its inception,

the alpine racing on Lake Corte Madera had to be abandoned, due to the most recent So Cal drought conditions. The lake water level was down approximately 60% from the previous year. While yachts that “draw” a mere 10 inches would not have presented a problem in making our annual regatta logistically feasible, it was determined that the less-than-ideal conditions should justify the decision to “table”

BUFFALO BEACH BLAST BY CATHY CIBIT AND CATHY JORGENSON

It didn’t get much better than actually

being at Catalina, but here at SDYC on May 25, it sure felt like it, complete with the Casino. Jim Dorsey and crew really out did themselves this year. Fun was had by all 250+ Buffalo Beach “buddies” on a perfect sunny day. Wait, Wait, there’s more…..The live and silent auction items were awesome as well as the 17 different raffle items; the limbo was soooo much fun; and the Buffalo Chip contest was even more fun! None of this would not have been possible without the dedicated support and help of our members and staff. Hours of planning, starting in January, went into assuring we would all have a “blast” at the Bash. A huge THANK YOU goes out to those members who generously donated goods and services for the auction and raffle items; volunteers whose tireless energy and positive attitude were unsurpassed; and SDYC staff who cheerfully assured the Bash would be perfect. Here is a summary: MC’s: Asa Morton and Keith Danon; Scott Launey 1949 Woody: Courtesy of Commodore Sinks, driven by Tyler Sinks Music: Vagabundos Del Mar: Bruce Gresham (guitar) Paul Hartley (guitar); Paul Yancey (mandolin); Lee Hope (harmonica); Tony Baloney (steel drum), & Guy Folsom (bass).

PC BY RISH PAVELEC, PC #16 DAWN

Hi PC Fleet!! As you well know, we

have experienced some uncomfortable heat in May and June. As I write, it is 8:30 am and already heating up in my home office. The Weather Liars are guessing for an uncomfortable day. My wind vane looks like someone glued it in place. As an update on PC’s available from out of the county, we have learned that numbers 50 and 83 are both in need of some significant restoration. Club member, Roger Stewart, went to look into 83 and came back somewhat disappointed. I have updated the list of boats for sale on the PC web site so those of you interested in getting into the mix should count your pennies and decide which one you want. The AMSS 40th Yesteryear Regatta was a huge success. Held on May 10th our fleet was represented by 7 boats. Congrats to #14 for coming in 1st and to #42 for a very close second in the PC group. Numbers 64, 11, 26, 66 and 37 followed up in that order. Our collective “Thanks!” go to the AMSS and especially Greg Stewart who continues to give so much of his time to the group and these great events. #14 walked away with both the Dingus AND the PC Perpetual trophies! On July 13th, we will have the PC ODW races and Aug. 27th will be the “Coronado Island Race”. The PC Fleet Championships were held on May 17th and 18th as described below. Following is a brief of the PC Fleet Championship Regatta, sailed in South Bay, and Coronado Yacht Club hosting and running the races, as submitted to me by our Fleet Captain, Jim Oberg: On Friday, 5/16, the tow boats

departed the SDYC at 3:00 pm. We had Staff Commodore, Gary Gould, Gayle, & Pam Lindley running his Cal-48 “Angelita” and towing PC# 31 “Skylark”, Geves & Jane Kenny running their 39’ Tollycraft “La Mer II” and towing PC# 14 “La Cucaracha”, Steve Brownsea in his 21’ RIB towing “Zest”, and Jim Oberg, running his Cal-40 “Cytation” and towing “First Fiddle”. The weather was very hot & glassey on the way down, and one had the feeling of, Oh Boy, we’re getting out of town for a little vacation! We all arrived at CYC at pretty much the same time, the PC’s were rafted up at the front dock and had a very special look & feel at an extremely wonderful club. The tow boats found their respective mooring locations, and the rest of the evening was very relaxing. There were a number of people who stayed around and had a great dinner on the club’s front deck. Saturday morning the Santa Ana had broken down and the wind was blowing briskly out of the south, and boy was it nice and cool, it felt Great! The sun came out around 10:30 am while the crews got their boats ready to go. We all left the front dock at 11:00 am to head out to the approximate location of channel buoy #28 where the RC set up our starting line. Ah south bay, good wind, and smooth water sailing, does not get much better than that, and those were the conditions for the entire weekend. The racing was very fun, competitive, and close on both Sat. & Sun. during the races positions changed numerous times, which made it really fun. After the racing on Sat. Gary & Gayle (#14) hosted a gathering on their boat for the fleet were we enjoyed Margarita’s, and very tasty “po po’s” from Ahi Tuna to crackers & cheese, it was again a wonderful experience for all, THANK YOU GAYLE & GARY!! After the Po Po’s on “Angelita”, the group headed up to town, to Miguel’s for dinner, where everyone enjoyed a great dinner with (3) options to choose

24 • J U LY 2 014 M ai n s h e e t • w w w. s d yc .o r g

from, and of course chips & white sauce. The racing on Sunday continued on as Saturday, close racing with many position changes, and of course smooth water and good breeze. Following are the results from the weekend: PC #31 “Skylark” PC #42 “Zest” PC #11 “First Fiddle” PC #14 “La Cucaracha” PC # 9 “Jade” In closing, Cissy and I went out yesterday in a nice 12-15K breeze. We made it as far as the end of SWYC before the outer section of our main halyard snapped in half. Ahhhhhh the joys of sailing!!

BUD CALDWELL The SDYC and especially the PC Fleet recently lost a great friend. Bud Caldwell passed on June 2, 2014 to join his beloved MJ. Bud never had a bad word to say about anyone and was always there to help, give advice and encouragement. Bud, you can be sure that the entire PC Fleet mourns your loss and you will not soon be forgotten. Fair winds. The PC Fleet

SSSS BY DEE VAN HORNE Photos by Peter Van Horne

N

ow that the Sr. Sabot Nationals are behind us, we still have lots of sailing events ahead of us including Fourth of July sabot regatta and don’t forget the famous Dutch Shoe Marathon to be held on Friday, July 18th! This is one of the most amazing events ever that SDYC and CYC host together with hundreds of little sabots crossing the bay and sometimes even dodging “BGBs” aka Big Gray Boats! We are now into full swing summer senior sabot sailing and we are continuing to sail on Tuesdays from 11:30am until about 1:15pm. We are sharing the La Playa sailing venue with

the juniors – thank you John Fretwell and Nick Kaschak for accommodating our group. We are even planning on doing some racing with the Junior A Fleet sailors in the afternoon on Tuesdays! The SSSS welcomes two new sailors to the fleet, Jim Patrick and Agnes Luster. Both SDYC junior sailors and very accomplished sabot sailors. The fleet just recently had their summer kick-off party hosted by Bob and Laura Kyle with Lynlee Slater making the party come to life with her floral decorating skills. Thank you both for hosting such a wonderful event. The SSSS also races once a month on a Saturday. So, if you can’t make the Tuesday, come join us on Saturday!

Making Better Best: What’s New for Summer Sailing 2014!

I

t’s no secret that SDYC has been a leader among youth sailing programs for generations. And admittedly, some of the key ingredients in our successful recipe are almost automatic. Yearround sailing with nice temperatures certainly helps. About 300 days per year with winds from some version of west at 7-12 kts is even more useful. And of course, the Club’s commitment to keeping our Juniors well-equipped is vital. But even with these elements in place, a good program doesn’t just happen, and a good program doesn’t make the jump to great without honest appraisal and effort to improve. The 2014 SDYC Summer Program includes all the key components that have been successful in the past, and also several heavily thought-out improvements. As I write this article on the very first day of the program, I’m happy to report that we have over 300 sailors enrolled, making this the biggest summer in SDYC history! Let’s take a look at some of the upgrades: • The world moves fast these days! We shortened many traditional classes from 4 to 2 weeks, and our audience responded. Happily, many sailors are still with us for a month or more, but with better options to fit in a family vacation, etc. We’ve reworked class syllabi to squeeze in all we can in a shorter session. • Better incentives for early registration gave us a clearer picture of staffing needs, meaning less overtime, so fresher coaching, and more predictable costs for more aggressive pricing. • Better non-racing options:

Adventure Sailing is where pre-teens and teens can further their sailing experience without making it all about competition. This class is almost sold out across the summer. • Better team focus for Advanced Campaigns. We’ve worked hard to make sure efforts like Team SDYC’s C420 Nationals Campaign are tuned to meet everyone’s needs. For C420 Nationals, we’ll use a two phase schedule where we first focus on boathandling with our newer teams, then add our veterans to the mix for tuning and boatspeed

26 • J U LY 2 014 M ai n s h e e t • w w w. s d yc .o r g

work, once the less experienced teams are ready! Participation in this team effort is prerequisite to using the Club’s best equipment. • Better communication. Despite our incredible Juniors website, frequent eblasts, and tools like Facebook, sometimes real faces with real voices are best. This summer we’ll hold a series of Parent Roundtable discussion where parents and sailors can get ahead of the game through the wisdom of some of our most successful veterans: o June 24th- From Sabot to High School Sailing o July 8th- Transitioning from High School to College Sailing o July 22nd- Olympic Pathways and Sailing Campaigns • Better results. Well, it may be just a bit soon to claim these, but my confidence in our staff is high. In the competition department, I think you can count on several strong showings from Team SDYC over the summer months. • Better future. If morning classes like Sea Urchins, Sea Horses, and Sea Otters are indicators of the future health of the program, things are looking good! Before summer’s end, we’ll have unleashed 180 ambitious new sailors onto the SDYC scene!
