Yep, the DAWG said we needed to start a new thread 'cause the first one has grown too big, 170 pages and almost 190,000 hits.

Next up on the calendar: Holiday Regatta, December 3 & 4th. Four one design classes, J/105, J/24, Ocean 20, and Melges 24 along with PHRF.

If you need to look back for something in the old thread here it is

Just got done with the SBYC sail policy meeting. I proposed www ( Winter Wet Wednesday ) The races would begin early January and have a start time for the first class at 2:30. Classes would be CHRF, Harbor 20, and everything else divided into 2 starts. Boats 35 and longer and under 35. Obviously with any earlier start time and being in winter makes the turn out lower.
Working people may not be able to make it. It would not happen every Wednesday due to the holidays and weekend races. I think it's worth a try. I have received very little objection to the concept. Please reply with any thoughts. My crew is itching to go sailing.

Mmm, half day Wednesdays. Arrive at the office at 9:45, have a coffee, take a dump, then a smoke. Let's see, it's almost 11:30, better get a jump on lunch to beat the crowds. A couple of Bloody's for lunch, and it's 1:30. Better head down to the boat early to watch the crew rig it.while i drink a beer. Drift until 4, drink more beer, then watch crew put away boat. Head up to club and have cocktails until dinner is ready. Arrive at office at 10:15 Thursday, hungover.


Yeah, it just might work!

Oh, dear, I think I may have crewed for you in the past.....

I'm all for Wet Winter Wednesdays as long as congress agrees to extend unemployment benefits. However, I certainly would welcome an excuse to race during the winter instead of having to get my ocean ya-ya's fulfilled by reading silly sailing anarchy posts! How much does it cost to rent flood lights? (I can't find my friggin' mittens....)

Didn't he start another copy cat thread called Santa Barbara Racing? It never had any of the sailing info that Janer supplies and his thread died quickly. How is it possible for him to use the same thread name as Janer;s. Need to call tech support on this one.

looking forward to racing one design this weekend Holiday Regatta. Keep us informed janer
and tell others that the Max Bullshit thread is not welcome. and or stupid.

I got the '65 VW bug in the deal when I sold the boat. You have an above average memory.

Incredible and wonderful news for lovely Lisa (Bowman Chewy's partner). After several years of battling an inoperable brain tumor, chemo and all the trials and pain that went with it, she had a scan yesterday that showed IT WAS GONE. This is a true miracle and blessing for Lisa and Chewy and all of those who have shown support during this difficult time. Your friends are all so happy for both of you!

She put photos of the brain scan on Facebook. Awesome. They had lots of love and prayers from all of their sailing friends during the ordeal. Now onward and upward, getting you both out on the water.

wow what a hostile environment you all play in

and the maturity (lack there of) - this is not a thread it's a youth hostile (spelled properly)

the only person with any "CLAIM" to any part of SA is (as lovingly refurred to) da Ed

well I'm glad the move has been completed and everyone got the same seat again (or soap box)


Hay just got a PM from da SA Security Office who had reviewed the surveillance tapes to see witch SBS-SP2 thread was 1st


Well sorry MAX but the video clearly shows this thread was "Owned" without lapse in coverage

Great turn out for the Holiday Regatta even though it was cold and not the greatest conditions, great RC work. The A Class got off 4 races with Skian Dhu now in the lead with 5 points followed by Taxi 7 points. Great to have Deke here with an Olson 30, but Blues Crews (J/92)Kieding/Baxter leads with 5 points followed by Perfect (Kevin Miller/Laura S) 6 points and Deke Klatt of Ventura with 7 points. Eight Ocean 20's raced with Fire Fly (Commodore Jack Byers and Pat Toole) taking 3 bullets, followed by Rich and Tom with 8 points. Third was Fleur de Lis (myself, Bill Bench and Sharon Green) with 9 points. There was also a J/105 fleet and Melges 24 fleet who's results are not up yet. Tomorrow is another day, probably with totally different conditions as another front may be coming thru. :huh:

Tough racing on Sunday, light air and big shifts. The first race had to be abandoned due to a big shift. Great RC work managed to get off 2 races. Class A was swept by
Skian Dhu; Dirk and crew. In B Class Perfect barely took 1st away from Blues Crews. J/105 was won by Short Skirt and Harbor 20's was won by Firefly. Still don't have the Melges 24 results??

I'm sure you meant stole instead of took. Nice of you to sugarcoat it. Or did you mean to say that Blues Crews screwed the final and deciding race and Perfect sailed a smart race and won? How 'bout some journalism w/o the spin or bias.

Ok, let me rephrase that as simple as possible. Going into the second day, Blues Crews was in first place. By the end of the regatta Perfect took (stole, absconded,swiped,snached,grabbed, whatever)first place away from them.

At the end of your post you have a quote
"It's better to remain quiet and thought a fool than to speak thus removing all doubt"
;) :lol:

No crap.
I sailed with Doc Laura for a couple months a year ago while she got back into the sport on her sweet J125 and Janer is on me like a cheap suit.
It is just that basic.

Doc Laura gave her the flick and she has never gotten over it.

OK, the rest of the results are up.
In the Melges 24 fleet TAX BILL (Bill Lannan) was a surprise victory over Average White Boat(Kent and his son); the J/105 class FREE ENTERPRISE stole victory from the 2nd place boat SHORT SKIRT (Pete Lufkin shared helm with Ryan Aubry.) Despite the weird conditions, all of the fleets had very tight finish times.

Very nice take homes, embroidered jackets, plus great party at the YC

To set the record straight there was a third boat in A Class, Sequoyah J/145 (Harteck/Parks) did participate the first day, took 3 last places and did not show for the second day of racing. I hope I did not sugar coat that fact.

A whole month till we start the Hot Rum Series.

Peace and love in the holidays.

You seem to recently be taking a lot of trips down memory lane. You must be: a) organizing old photos, B) scanning old photos into a digital library, or c) something has caused you to reflect on a mis-spent youth where for $500 you had the fastest boat in town (and in most cases still is today) and the cost of beer had the greatest impact on your annual campaign budget.

Right you are. Cat guys were outcasts in the 70s and 80s and now they're racing for the AC. Too old for AC cat racing and too young for Harbor 20s. I post these old photos as a way to change the subject. Certain photos in my collection could be used as the nuclear option incase things get real ugly.

You seem to recently be taking a lot of trips down memory lane. You must be: a) organizing old photos, B) scanning old photos into a digital library, or c) something has caused you to reflect on a mis-spent youth where for $500 you had the fastest boat in town (and in most cases still is today) and the cost of beer had the greatest impact on your annual campaign budget.

Right you are. Cat guys were outcasts in the 70s and 80s and now they're racing for the AC. Too old for AC cat racing and too young for Harbor 20s. I post these old photos as a way to change the subject. Certain photos in my collection could be used as the nuclear option incase things get real ugly.


While the Cat guys were outcasts, some of them would have been outcasts whether or not they were sailing Cats.

"Some" could be easily substituted with "most".

Excellent. The party was wonderful. There is just a different kind of commradarie in one design racing. I like it.

Our new Commodore must be pretty damn happy winning the Holiday Regatta in Harbor 20's with Pat Toole as crew. Then winning the Holiday Parade, trip for two to Cancun. Buy some lottery tickets Jack! ;)

The boat of choice for the Centennial Cup is Harbor 20's on January 9th. I'll be on the marks/photo boat. No more shots of those Victory's flipping over. Damn.

This afternoon the jet sags back to the South and the combination of a big chunk of energy coming in from the North and a wet PWA of 1.5" coming from the dateline could make for some spectacular class 5 rapids up in the canyons in SB and Ventura county tomorrow morning through Late Tuesday Night.

Seriously, if you live near a dry creek bed or at the foot of a canyon, pay attention to this wave of energy. It could be epic.

Jeff was a sweet, dear man--a talented sailor who gave much of himself to all aspects of the sport. He was also an incredible father. He left us too soon; the wind and the water were waiting for him to come back. He taught me much about being a sailor; he taught me more about being a parent. I miss you, Jeff.

The YC burgee is once again at half-staff. Sadly, Stephen Redding, prominant business man and philanthopist passed away unexpectedly. He is also Johnny D's brother-in-law, so Key West is probably out of the picture.

Anyone interested in a J29? There's an E-Bay auction for a boat now in San Diego. I know the boat, and it is in very good condition and has good sails. (or did the last time I saw it)

http://cgi.ebay.com/...=item4aa789702e

Sold about four years back for over $25K.

The two Santa Barbara teams at Key West Race Week are doing well, sitting in 2nd and 3rd place in the Farr 30 Class. Deneen is second behind Barking Mad with 3,2; and Groovederci probably being driven by Austin Herlihy is in 3rd with finishes of 6,1.

Some very fierce weather hit there last night, so today should be interesting. Best of luck!

New to the Santa Barbara Harbor, Scrub A Dub Dive Service, owned and operated by Shawn Hughes.

I was born and raised here in Santa Barbara and love sailing, diving, fishing, anything that has to do with the ocean. For the last few years I have been sailing with Larry on Rush Street for out of town events and sailing locally on Missbehavin' the J/22. I love boats and I love diving so I have started a Bottom Cleaning service here in the Santa Barbara Harbor. I started cleaning bottoms 2 years ago for Salty Dog and have since created my own style and feel that I could do a better job for the customer on my own while charging them less. For you racers out there with good paint I charge $1.00 per foot/per cleaning for service every 2 weeks. When you want service only once a month the rate is $1.25 per foot. I also clean powerboats and offer other services like under water photos. Please contact me for more information.

The results in the Farr 30 class did not change much over the week. Barking Mad held on to first place with 15 points, Turbo Duck moved to second place with 25 point, Deneen 3rd with 29 points and Austin Herlihey (Groovey 2) fourth with 37 points. Good racing, Congrats.
