    RIP Bob Fisher

    Spent an afternoon next to Bob Fisher sailing out past Point Loma on Gracie, a Doug Peterson daysailer with double trapezes. This was in 1980(?) and we sailed with Doug, John Reichel, and Kerry Geraghty (the builder). Bob was full of wit and questions  - down to the size of the cooler on the...

    Older well known IOR Boats

    One of Scaramouche's sister - Dyna in Newport circa 1970. Other sisters were Aura, Bay Bea, Bandit/Falcon. CCA was still the rule when S&S drew these lines.

    Peterson 38 Dust 'Em

    Dust 'Em was a Geraghty Marine boat. She was not a sister to Forte. Not sure who commissioned her, but DC owned her in ~1981.  The wood sister to Forte was High Noon - also a Geraghty Marine boat. Forte seemed a notch quicker than High Noon, though lost on style points.

    Conch Republic Cup KW to Cuba 16

    SORC's event seems well thought out. The day race in front of Havana would be great for both the sailors and Havana's citizens. You can stand on the Malecon nearly all day and and only see a few small fishing boats and an occasional freighter. After spending time in Havana this past spring, I...

    Summit 45

    I can't speak for the recent ex-owner, but after sailing on the boat this past summer, I can say that there were no boat issues at all. In fact, everything is still essentially like new and a fun boat. If anything, the ex appears to have found that he liked the relative simplicity of training...

    The one-ton SSA was a G&amp;S. I spent one miserable summer on the boat. Almost every delivery was upwind with the #4 that year with an engine that needed air bled out of the system every hour…However I don't think that this boat was the old SSA as SSA had a grid track system for the genoas...

    Carl Eichenlaub

    He is truly one of the best - if not the best - ambassador of the sport we have had in this era. He gets my vote as well!
