John was in the school of Orthodontics at U of I. He lived in a historic area near the university and built the boat in his back yard.

Actually Albatross was an Ericson 36, not a 33. The 33 was a frac rig.

Chicago to Mackinac rules at the time were essentially category 2 requirements and provided that you either carried a "storm trisail" with specified area or your mainsail had to be capable of being reduced through reefing by 60% or more of its originaly area. Many Many small boats of the time (and a number of bigger boats) chose three reefs to get there. Two reefs would not do it unless there was a huge gap in area from one to three.

Yes, three reefs was standard, & none of this using a different main for inshore stuff.

I did a couple of Hobarts on boats with a fourth reef in the main on the theory that you were more likely to drop in a fourth reef than bother getting the tri-sail up early enough!

Great thread for us old blokes and a history lesson for the kids. Don't ever let it die!

Have a good one.

I've got a lot of history on that boat. I raced on it with the third owner. Affectionately called the "Cedar Speeder". A lot of fun. Pretty boat - ugly crew! ;) It was used as a liveaboard in the Gulf Islands for awhile when one of the owners built a house in the Gulf Islands. It was reno'd by the son/family of the original owner in '80. I see it's got a carbon rig now and the third owner & their crew painted the mast "guard rail yellow" in keeping with the original theme and colour.

Sorry for the hi-jack Larry put while we are talking about cold mold and Jesperson builds:

http://www.jespersenboats.com/html/distantdrummer_imagepage.htm

Peterson 37 "Distant Drummer". A work of art really and I sailed against her in my Ganbare days. A lot of history with her too but I'll shut up now.

Magistri. Sail No. 84007. Peter Farlinger, RCYC, Toronto. C&C 39. 1983 SORC, Miami to Nassau Race. Class E, rated IOR 30.6.

Per Mike Hunt, Magistri was a C&C custom 39 owned by Peter Farlinger.
It raced in the 83 Admirals Cup and did quite well. It was sold to a Swedish buyer sometime after the regatta.
I'm pretty sure this Magistri was on the 83 AC team with the 41 Silver Shadow and the C&C 45 Amazing Grace.

Jeff Carver said... this Magistri, a custom 39-footer, was designed and built for Peter Farlinger, a former member of the syndicate that had purchased and renamed Marauder.
Our Magistri never earned the reputation in Canada that she deserved -- mainly because Farlinger sailed her exclusively offshore and only for a short period before
selling her to Swedish interests. But she campaigned with distinction, winning the Channel Race as part of the Canadian team at the 1983 Admiral's Cup.
An excellent, if smallish, ocean racer that reaffirmed there was no more to C&C's design touch than a wildcard like Evergreen.

While in Swedish ownership she was owned by Marcus Wallenberg, famous financial/bank tycoon (in Sweden at least). I think her name was changed to "Indispensable Too"

I wonder were she is today???

Trim is only part of the problem, halyard needs eased too
Oh wait, that's one of those times where "basic sail trim" includes working the halyard

Really, only the guys on that boat and maybe God know what occurred just before this shot was taken. Given the rolly polly situation that was occurring and the full on halyard I guess that they were recovering from a collapsed blooper that had (and of course would) have put the bloop in the drink maybe 30 seconds earlier. And in many ways, the demise of the blooper was because it wasn't faster, and in fact as has be noted previously, was often slower what with all the dicking around needed.

And OMG look at that hole in the water!

+1 easing the halyard about 10 feet will make the steering cables and everyone's tighty whities last a lot longer

Hi Larry,

Do you think you could find some nice shoots of Williwaw, the 45 ft alu boat that was disqualified or at least had rating problems in 198x SORC.

Another boat I admire is the Aires, some 43-45 ft Ron Holland, she has been shown in the first part of this awesome thread, motoring to start with only main up.

I you could dig in the archive about these boats it wold be great Posted Image

It's a great pic, and while some remarks are perhaps a bit underhanded, I give these guys a lot of credit. Sailing a Peterson 42 in those conditions with 5 guys on deck... nowadays you wouldn't see a spinnaker (much less a blooper) on a boat like that without more like 15 crew.

And I think TOG is exactly right, they probably yanked the blooper halyard tight about 20 seconds before this pic was taken to lift it out of the previous wave... fun fun fun...

Pardon the top post

Enjoy the holiday.

Here's Blitzen. O'Brien/Cronin, CYC. G&S 30. IOR Section 6, rated 22.0.
I remember Blitzen as a Col YC boat also.

Looks like a Section 5 code flag to me. Anybody have an explanation?
Perhaps Blitzen had an LMYA rating as well as IOR?

Not this shit again. It always said Intrepid on the transom. That was the third in a series of boats the owner has campaigned with the same name for a lot of years. The boat still saiiled during a time when old 12s were rotting yard queens.

All that power and so little speed. It was fun racing to be sure, but pretty much decided with getting to the weather mark in the order of who bought the latest genoa and to the leeward mark in the order of who didn't spin out.

The boats and rigs were so wrong in so many ways, including that IOR "chine" midships, just below the waterline.

I'm still stuck in those days with my last two boats. Besides, when have we ever had so many boats racing as back then? Nowadays we are lucky to get 8 or 9 in our class and they are all very different, from a super light 26' to a old Peterson 2 ton. Then we had 20 boats pretty close to each other, great racing, even though it might have been a bit slower and took a lot more work to go slower.

Thanks, blisster and everybody.

Here's the color version of this recently scanned image.
I believe the image may have been displayed earlier, but I am not looking back since the scan is new.
I showed you the monochrome version a few days ago.

From the time a friend told me he had served as cabin boy on Intrepid's tender
and was often aboard when sailing, I have liked this yacht.

I am glad to have taken a number of nice photos of her under sail.
I have no photos of her at a dock anywhere though.
Maybe you do and could share them here, or under sail.

That would be 1981. John Rumsey, Bunky Helfrich , and Carl Craaford were part of the crew. I grew up working at Palmetto Bay Marina that Rumsey and Bunky owned along with my Gary Wheatley. Carl had come over from Aust., to work on WP, I was able to sail on the boat from HHI to Ft Lauderdale... was in 10th grade, my Pop did not want me to miss 4 weeks of school to race...

Maybe so, but it produced some great designs too. Lots of true dual purpose and well behaved boats came out of MORC.

^^ Raced against Joe when he had the Olson 30 'Hot Tuna' in the 90's out of Treasure Island.


I was on there.. Great boat. We had a little min-fleet of them for a while with Tony Johnson's Dorado and an Olson 29 called Bullet.

Good stuff.

That's gotta be Celebration to leeward in the last photo. Does that dinghy rate one ton too?

Saw Bullet break their rig inside Treasure Island at one Michelob Cup, when the race was delayed from Saturday to Sunday, 1991? IIRC. They wanted to 'practice' inside and after setting the spin the rig popped.

Bye the way, Diva JV was not a 2 tons ?

Yes, the second boat is definitely Diva. The third boat all the way to leeward is Celebration. You can tell by the Horizon sail number (ending in 25) on the fractional rig. I don't think the JV Diva was a full 2 tonner. All three boats here may be bigger than IOR 30.5 though, you could be right about that.

I'm wondering if anybody here can identify this distinctive yacht, Sail No. 23866.
I believe this was on a Chi-Mac race, perhaps 1982 or so, but am not positive.
I only have scratch sheet from 1983, which does not include her. And my 1983 Mac photos were taken from a helicopter.
It looks like she had yellow lettering, but I can't make it out, and can't remember.

Looks like a late 70's Peterson 34, there was a production run of a few in So Cal and they were fast
