No Contention there for sure but I do not think it is a Nic 33; the front part of the coach-roof,on the Nic, was a large flat bevel , they also sported halyard and scondary winches on roof-top.

The transom would rather make me think of a UFO 34 .

Yes, I didn't blow the pic up and just looked at the window. The coachroof and bottom of the transom would confirm UFO 34. Still.... good to remind us of Fang.

Poultergeist. This main reminded me of the Hancock Building. Sorry for the blurry pic.

Dana and the Sobstad loft were building some exotic mains during this period. Poltergeist was also a Beneteau 1-Ton and had some great sailors on the boat. I later purchased the boat from Al Henning and renamed it Toscana (it was the third of the Toscana's). Al did a couple of seasons with me. But nothing matched the racing that they had when there were 7-15 one tons actively racing in the Chicago Area.

Was wondering when Larry would get around to us! (Thanks Larry!). Ah yes.. .the additional hatch - doesn't every owner need one so that he can stand up straight when putting his foulies on down below? Guess only if they're 7' tall!

Lots of good times and good results on that boat!

I think the photo is 80 or 81 nationals at CI Harbor.
And yes that is one of those early light weight Mylar kites, we called a "Quivering Cell" because in anything other than flat water they quivered and were not fun to trim or very fast.

1976 Contention 33 3/4ton..Originally "Patriot". Peterson design. This picture is while it was mine:

Boat loved waves...but a handful downwind...the IOR death rolls!


Ah, the Contention 33.
It was said that you get a bread roll, a sausage roll, and then the Petersen Roll!

Many moons ago, 4 of us university students borrowed one from a kind owner and raced it 4 100 miles in the 1982 South Atlantic Race, Cape Town to Punta del Este, Uruguay. A DOWNWIND race down the South East trades. Anybody could have told us it was the wrong boat for that. Even we knew it, but that was the boat we had. We broached our way accross the Atlantic.
Afterwards I solo'ed the boat home, mainly upwind.
It was an incredibly sound boat and rode out three severe storms in the South Atlantic coming home.

The two crossings remain most memorable and I will always have a soft spot for the Contention 33.

Regards,

Multisail.

Yellow Jacket. Michael W. Spicer, Barrington YC. Frers 36. 1983 Storm Trysail Week. IOR Class 5, rated 28.3.

Spitfire, with spinnaker. H.E. MC Brayer, Cedar Point YC. Peterson 37. IOR Class 5, rated 28.6.



Posted Image



Errata:

In the old thread, in Post 2989, I got some information on Spitfire wrong. There was another Spitfire competing, in IOR Class III.

That boat was white, and a CTM 46.
Spitfire. Midshipman Robert Rabuse, USNA Sail Squadron. CTM 46. Storm Trysail Week 1983, Block Island. IOR Class 3. (White)

The correct information for the blue Spitfire is shown at the top in this post. Sorry about that, Gina and all. My apologies.

Now sailed as "What, A Tripp" in Seattle. Notable that she participated in the IOR renewal last weekend.

Attached File  09 05 07 288.jpg   144.28K   58 downloads My favourite on Lake Ontario..... Bonaventure......now so absent from a racing scene of small one designs. A local builder is trying to get designers interested in bringing back the old IOR SORC where one design was absent and designer's were in their heyday, as well as good builders, now languishing with insurance repair work at best. Just look at Larry's amazing pics.....those were the glory days......what has happened? Are all the old war horse racers dead and gone? One designs will leave no heritage. They are the death knell of design/build. Just a bunch of chevrolets for sale.

Yes, info on Yellow Jacket and Spitfire were taken from STW scratch sheet for 1983,
except that Affiliation was listed but did not include YC after name of club. I added the YC.

Some owners were members of multiple yacht clubs, but only one was listed for this regatta.

That's an interesting photo - and not just because how poorly the Farr seems to be doing in the around-the-island race. It's interesting because that looks like the Atlantis Hotel on the right side of the picture - standing out all alone with little constructions around it.

BI has changed a bit since 83.

The 1983 STW Results Booklet does not list designers.
But the scratch sheet was my source on China Doll.
Sometimes scratch sheets contain errors I suppose.

I did notice that Club is listed as LISA in the Results Booklet.

Storm. Bruce E. Barnard, NYYC. Luders 27 (39' LOA). 1983 Storm Trysail Week, Block Island RI. MHS Division 10, rated 864.6.


Bill Luders designed a classic with his concept of the ideal design for a racing/cruising 36 footer, based on his years of experience in yacht design
and construction, ranging from the well-known Luders 16 class through the Luders 27 (Storm) to the design and construction of the 12 meter AMERICAN EAGLE.

How many skippers can look up at the masthead, watch the motion, and be pretty sure their bottom is not clean?

Still racing a 1976 Catalina 30 here, but with 3DL sails now =) We do still have a #3 that is bulletproof Dacron, it works great still. I wish there were more of these boats still around racing. Awesome pictures!

NIce Frers, hope that genoa N3 will be replaced by a brand new one, flat that time :)


Looks like they might be cracked-off a little. Could be that it looks bellied out because it is sheeted out a couple feet and they haven't moved the lead forward and out.

Thank you very much for posting this, Larry! Brought back wonderful memories when Tampa Bay was the cross roads of serious sailing in January through March. When I was growing up, my father would take me over to the St Petersburg Yacht club every year to take a look at all the SORC boats. I had vowed that I would race the SORC. Did it finally after I graduated in 1986, on Picante, a Soverel 33 with the engine mounted in the bow for IOR rating improvement. It was like having a permanent person on the bow. After doing the whole series as 'Mastman - Navigator' (hell of a lot of running back and forth!) I vowed that I would only race on the largest sailboat that I could.

After the SORC, did the Miami-Montego Bay race on Condor. I remember that it was around 110' above the deck and about 115' above the water. I remember going up the mast to do de-macrame the halyards, it was dang high above the deck! That was a fun ride and wonderful memories! Ran out of food on the morning of the 4th day and water by the middle of the day. The cook on the boat, Didi, stripped down about half way through the trip on deck and proceeded to take a sponge bath... That was ... distracting. Got 'put in the tide' the day after we finished for my birthday celebration. Didi then proposed a marriage of convenience while the whole crew was having a beer with me pool side at the Mo-bay YC for my birthday celebration. I got wet a second time by falling over backwards into the pool when she said that!

I could go on and on.

We would say that on that time we could have sailed cute and sexy boats :) (I owned a Swan 37 then 41, and i do say that they were cuter than new Farr 400, soto 40, ker 40 and so on )
Anyway its only my opinion

And a fine opinion it is..............good taste in boats.........there are many of us out here that love the Swans and the '70's C&C Custom boats..........the lines are iconic and sublime.........take heart in knowing that such as the Farr 40's etc, when retired and masts removed are perfectly designed to double as tug boats with a big farm tire on the bow......don't forget a '72 C&C 43 just won overall the Chicago Mackinac after driving through the 60 knot winds.............tough beautiful boats.................cheers..

Thank you Larry! No, never got married to Didi, she was English and was looking for a posher ride into the US than I could have provided. She was on the prowl for Doctors, Lawyers or captains of industry. I was a newly minted college grad who was doing all the long distance racing I had read about over the years. I was doing race boat deliveries to the next race for food money.

The Miami-Montego Bay race had a lot of drama. We were real light with crew, only 16 on board, could have used at least 4 more bodies to rotate through the watches. Had a lot of inventory torn up, luff tapes on the heavy 1, jib top and # 2, and cracked a runner base (may have been already done but was discovered during the race.) There was a 24 hr sewing bee down below to put some luff tape segments on the heavy 1 from another torn headsail so it could at least be set (slowly, had to load each luff tape segment at the sail went up.) We managed to be come entangled in a lobster holding pen in about 100ft of water at the end of Long Island in the Bahamas while ghosting along in light air. Took quite a bit of time to clear from that mess.

There was also a power play going on between the Owner's personal assistant and the Boat Captain. All the most experienced people backed the boat captain and all the noobs were in the personal assistants pocket. I could see where that was going and graciously turned down a position on the boat, offered by the personal assistant. Condor went on to to the Caribbean circuit and the next race, the boat captain was fired and most of the crew went with him in support. Condor was a wreck the rest of that series due to lack of experience on the deck. I raced the Montego Bay raceweek on Man-O-War (J-35) and did a delivery of that boat to Antiqua for its raceweek. Crossed paths with Condor in Charlotte Amalie and caught up with the new boat captain, Simon the bowman, when they were hauling the inventory over to the sail loft.

Hell of a good time!

War Baby. Warren A. Brown. Bermuda. S&S 62. 1983 SORC, Class A, rated IOR 44.2. St. Petersburg to Ft. Lauderdale Race.
Palmer-Johnson build. Displacement 36 tons, height of mast, 86 feet.


ex-Dora IV, ex-Tenacious, previously owned by Lynn WIlliams, then by Ted Turner.
Winner of 1979 Fastnet Race.
This boat was the pride of most Chicago sailors when owned and sailed as Dora IV on Lake Michigan by Lynn Williams.


Re: Lake Michigan
Quote below from webpage at http://www.sailingma...ures/14-the-mac

...But it is Turner who is perhaps most famous for underestimating the race. Having never sailed the Mac before,
Turner was warned that Lake Michigan can dish up some particularly challenging conditions at times.
Having thousands of ocean miles under his belt, Turners reply was akin to a guffaw: Yeah, Im really scared.
Later, with his 12-Meter American Eagle and his crew bruised and battered in a fearsome northerly gale,
Turner famously proclaimed, I hereby publicly retract anything and everything I have ever said about inland sailing.

Ahoy, Ike's Bay Commodore...

The photo was taken at Newport in 1983 during the America's Cup summer.


I believe Clipper was sold to the Canada 1 (Secret Cove YC Challenge) syndicate some time in 1983, before this photo was taken.

Nope. The second one (in the pic) was a Ron Holland maxi.

The first one (that did the 79 Fastnet) was built in timber to a John Sharp design for the 77-78 Whitbread. Lost her experimental carbon stick on leg one. Built like a brick dunny.

Not quite. Usual Suspect won the Chicago Mackinac Cup, for the smaller monohull racing division and section 6. 29 boats from the Mackinac Trophy division had better corrected times as well as six multi hulls.

A few more memories came to me after my previous post. First one was tacking in 'very' close to the Great Isaac Lighthouse at night after crossing the gulf stream. I thought we were going to taste the bricks before we tacked away! The second one was rounding Cape Maisi on the Western end of Cuba. Another late at night event and we were very close to the point, well within Cuban territorial waters. A few years prior, patrol boats captured a race boat and detained the crew for a while. There was quite an air of tension on the boat until we got back outside of their territorial waters. We were lights out and had the running lights dimmed to squeak around that point so that we could free up and set the spinnaker for the final run to Montego Bay.

Except for the 'political drama,' it was a wonderful experience to have crewed on such a storied vessel and the team mates were all great people. I had more fun than I can express in words!

I have photos somewhere in storage and will get them scanned and posted soon.

I remember La Forza as one of the first IOR boats I'd ever seen. I was probably ten years old when she was brand new and spent some time on the dock of the Port Washington YC. An awe inspiring sight for a kid of that age.

I was hoping "Wisp" would show up on this thread. Wisp was built in Sidney B.C. by Bent Jespersen Boat Builders in 1981 (I think). I started to sail with the Wilson family when they owned a Viking 33 called "Menehune". I was fortunate to sail on Wisp a few times. However my brother sailed on her from the start. Vic- Maui, Clipper Cup, Mexorc, BBS, SORC...& many more regatta's. He has hundreds of pictures documenting the campain. She was also featured in a Forespar add. Sailing down wind between Tomahawk & I think Container, I think it was during SORC. Recently I was honored to play a small part in her refit. She was purchased by the late Don Wilson's son. We redid all the deck gear with new Harken equipment, new keel & new carbon rig. I'll call my Bro, get him to send me some pictures. There are some awesome shot's. Hope to post them soon.......

So I guess that the "Fujimo" tale of "F.. you Jane I'm moving out" from the Frers 50 tale is/was total bs.


HA, the Fujimo story is one of my skipper's favorite, no joke I've heard 5 times already this summer

I raced on that boat quite a bit in the '90's and we called it the "Cedar Speeder". We had a lot of fun with that boat. It's great that it has been resurrected to it's former glory. Nice new mast in carbon but I used to like the guard rail yellow when it was painted in aluminum. And a tiller now? Really? 2 tonners were a hand full in any kind of air downwind. Watch out for the round downs with a stick! I think the rudder bearings were always an issue though.
