“The Santa Barbara Yacht Club did an absolutely splendid job,” Stagg said. “It is one of the best clubs I’ve been to for a long time. The members were very, very welcoming and treated everyone associated with our class just wonderfully.”
Way back, I was crew on a 53 footer, Saturday race. We hit the layline for the weather mark, and are steaming along in a good breeze.
We pass just to leeward of a small boat with a wide aft deck, couple busy on the aft deck. He has a towel over his ass covering just that part. Everyone on the rail (all guys at that time) yelling and making noise, greatly annoying the couple. We sail on, it gets quiet, no reaction from the small boat.
We were lead boat, and I asked, 'I wonder if they realize there's about ten more boats on that layline.'
One more boat passed them, and suddenly the smll boat motored briskly away.
