Llwyd Ecclestone Program Will Be a Sellout!

On Wednesday, February 21, 2007, the Sailing Club presents a multi-media evening on world class racing and cruising by renown sailor Llwyd Ecclestone. Llwyd has been a member of PBSC for many years but this is his first program appearance at our club since his schedule has just recently allowed an opening. Not the usual internationally acclaimed racer known only as a racer, he is prominent as a major real estate developer, a worldwide cruising enthusiast, and a sailor immersed in the technical details of making his boats go fast. Ecclestone grew up in Detroit, learned to sail in small boats, and at age 17 sailed and raced his first offshore yacht, a 38' S&S yawl named Bikini. A 50' Ted Hood design with the same name followed in 1968.* As racing skills and interest increased, his selection of names changed to more serious racing choices, Dynamite, again by Ted Hood, and Kodiak by German Frers. In 1972 Llwyd sailed Dynamite representing the Bayview Yacht Club in the prestigious Canada's Cup, a match yacht race which he won. He has raced in 28 Port Huron-Mackinac, 17 Newport-Bermudas, 13 Chicago-Macs, and cruised all over the world. He won the Chicago-Mac in 1990, but his proudest victory is the 1998 Bermuda Race on Kodiak, and when he won the Lighthouse Trophy for the first overall. His latest yacht is another Frers design, a sloop of 94 feet named Keturah. Perhaps not designed strictly for racing, but surely a luxurious and fast cruiser as well. And knowing Llwyd, she will continue winning races. Please join us in welcoming Llwyd Ecclestone to his club on Wednesday, February 21. See page 3 for menu.

*Ned's note: I remember seeing Llwyd and his 50' Bikini at the PBSC Memorial Day race to West End, Bahamas in the early 1970's. This program is guaranteed to be a sellout, so call the TACK line (881-8225) now. Reservations will be limited to the first 125 paid (and yes, you can use your club account, but if you do you will be charged even if you don't show up). Because of space limitations there will be no exceptions! Don't be disappointed ­ make your call now. Tickets are $20.00 per person. Please make your payment by 2/17.

From The Commodore

I would like to thank all of the members for their confidence in entrusting me with the leadership of the Club. I am honored. I would also like to thank the 60+ members who attended the Change of Watch ceremony. In particular, I want to thank former members Jim and Kay Peterson for providing the cannon and Jim Peterson for serving as Adjutant for the ceremony. A special thank you goes to the new Junior Board of Directors for looking so elegant in their blue and tan uniforms. They were, and will continue to be, an inspiration to me and all of the Board to do all we can to make their efforts on behalf of the Junior Sailing Program succeed in an ever increasing way. I would also like to thank P/C Lou Daniello, (Org.) for offering to purchase a cannon for the Club. I would like to thank my wife, Karen, for arranging the lunch. Thanks also to Karen and Kathleen Chalaire, Social Chair, who served Mimosas and Bloody Mary's prior to the ceremony. Another very special thank you goes to John Gross who arranged to purchase the tractor Brandon Cairnes uses to trim the lawn. This tractor will also be equipped with a trailer hitch to help in moving boats around the property. John is donating a hand mower to further assist in maintaining the grounds. A winch has been installed on the floating ramp-- try it next time you launch your boat. You can preserve the ramp by using it for only for dollies. A reminder sign is being posted: DOLLIES ONLY ON THIS RAMP TRAILERS AND TOW VEHICLES USE CONCRETE RAMP AT SOUTH END OF WATERFRONT Finally, I would like to thank all of the members who have accepted chairmanships of committees. We are again including a list of this year's committees and are asking each member to find a place on at least one committee to help our Club be even better. We need a chairman for Lawn Games, Membership Retention, Boat House Paintings Preservation, Tennis Court Feasibility, Friday Night Food/Programs, Boat House Restroom and Transient Boat Pump-outs.

A new year's beginning is expected to present many inspired comments about happenings during the past year, or proposed future events that will render the new year even more successful. This article will concentrate on 2007, with suggestions as to how to improve this new year by learning from past years, especially those from 1996 through 2006, the years of our ownership of this property. At our first official club function in 1996, a barbecue held on scrubby grass close to the scrubby club house, we were pleasantly surprised at the turnout of close to 100 members. Surprised perhaps because PBSC dues had just then been increased from $150 to $500, and we feared a loss of membership, which fortunately did not happen. The Quartermaster had the foresight for that event to order 50 knit shirts with the club's logo, similar to our present ones, except with the years 1966 - 1996 embroidered under the logo. I remember the occasion clearly, since my grandson Christopher Hornig (age 13, a family member of the club at that time) had agreed to hawk these to the attendees, and sold every one! I still have mine, a bit worse for wear. At what event have we sold 50 shirts (at a profit) since then? The Boathouse was a prime attraction at 4600, but the second floor had no windows, either from neglect, storms, or miss-use as a boathouse of ill repute. At a club meeting in 1997 we sold new aluminum windows with plaques naming each window for its contributor. I'm afraid today we add such items into our overworked expense budget, hoping for the best. Raffle Dazzle - From the Mainsheet, October, 2000: Members and guests have been generous in raffles at meetings, with tickets $1 each, or 7 for $5. We have netted an average of about $90 pure profit for the club at each raffle event. 50/50, or donate a prize. Who will chair this fun event for 2007? From the beginning our annual party was held as a holiday affair at a member's home, pot-luck, with boat crews invited. New officers were announced, and attendance was always many more than our total membership - a big fun family. Today is different. The party is a ball, with live music, and with a catered supper (Prime rib), and with concerns as to attendance, costs, etc. In recent years we have tried to ensure a profit on such affairs, but since there are many fixed expenses (music, invitations, etc.) we have seldom succeeded. The best way to estimate charges for such a happening is to know charges and results of the recent past (from available information): Remember, fund raising is necessary for the continuance of most clubs, and member participation and income from activities are effective means of fund raising!

Dues are not considered as fees. They are for support of our infrastructure, taxes, mortgage, insurance, maintenance of property and buildings, and utilities. As such, they are generally applicable to all members regardless of their special interests in the club. As such they are generally raised only in keeping with the published Consumer Price Index, effectively keeping us "level". To this end, the Board has approved a dues increase of 5% for 2007. Further, for 2007 our budget suggests a total of $126,000 income from dues compared with expenses of infrastructure of $134,299. Thus the increase mentioned above puts us in line for the coming year (at least as far as dues are concerned). May I repeat a paragraph from the March 1999 Mainsheet: "Perhaps it's reasonable to suggest that each member's purpose in joining the club, in addition to an enhanced opportunity to sail and associate with other sailors, should be to help in the support and growth of an organization which has not previously existed in its present form, and yet is vital to the future of our sport and our community."


Neditorials a Part of the Past

I've enjoyed the many years of editing your Mainsheet (except perhaps for lapses in creativity, trips to the bulk mail department, deadlines, editing, attempts at humor, not to mention typing with only eight fingers). But all great high paying jobs must come to an end, so at least a portion of this Mainsheet will be my last. Joe Tringali will edit this fine newsletter from now on, and I hope each of you will welcome him for the improvements sure to result. This by no means diminishes my interest in PBSC, and I will continue as a director. Perhaps Joe will even allow an occasional article from me in the future. Best wishes to Joe, and thanks for all who have helped in the past. Kindest regards,

Ned Goddard

Yachting Customs and Courtesies, Third Edition

A Wonderful Message from Some Dear Member Friends

By Ned Goddard Back in the mid-nineties we welcomed to PBSC membership an extremely attractive couple with an interest in sailing. Having recently moved to south Florida after a very successful `dot-com' business elsewhere, Craig & Linda McKee entered into the sailing and social life at 4600. Our directory at that time shows a boat named Insouciant (with no other information) but much of their sailing was as crew on our Alondra. A party hosted by Craig and Linda at their luxurious double condo at Old Port Cove was held soon afterwards to show plans and pictures of work in progress in Holland of their Trintella 59' aluminum hulled yacht to be named Mona Lisa. On completion, many of their PBSC friends were invited to Holland for the three-day commissioning party and ceremony. Those able to make the trip reported a wonderful party and an absolutely gorgeous yacht with state-of-the-art equipment throughout. An extensive shake-down cruise continued for the next few years throughout Scandinavia, Europe, and Britain, with Mainsheet reports whenever possible. Excerpts from our publication of April 2001 follow: "Mona Lisa is 59 feet overall, with a 100 foot carbon fiber unstayed mast. It features an AeroRig self tending jib design for efficient and short-handed sailing ease. The navigation and communications equipment includes two SSBs, two radars, two GPSs, Satcom-c, etc. The sextant relied on in event of electronic failure was never used because of weather in the English Channel and Irish Sea unable to take a single sight!" Then, after six years, imagine our surprise and delight to receive this email dated January 16, 2007 from the McKees: Dear Ned, I just received the dues invoice from PBSC and your note. Although we almost never are in NPB, we are pleased to support the PBSC. We are sailing full time on "The World of ResidenSea" on which we own an apartment. I am writing this email at sea enroute from South Georgia Island to Ushuaia. From there we go on to 8 days in Antartica. The web site for the World is below, at which you can see our itinerary and other information. http:/ If you are wondering about our beloved yacht Mona Lisa, she is still for sale. You can see her at this web site. If you know a world cruiser looking for the ultimate yacht, please inform them of Mona Lisa's web site. Best Regards, Craig McKee Note: We will reply to this email with thanks and with a request to send Mainsheet articles of interest to the club as time permits.

PBSC Couple's Book Goes National

­ the book that made its debut in the PBSC lounge a few months ago ­ is receiving national coverage. Our very own P/C Joseph A. Tringali will be doing a book signing at the United States Power Squadrons national meeting in Jacksonville on February 22 and 23 of this year. He and wife Mary Lou Tringali will barely have time to get home and unpack before they drive up to Stuart where Joe will lecture at a dinner meeting at the Chapman School of Seamanship on March 16. A few days later they'll fly to Newport, Rhode Island where Joe will do his thing at the Museum of Yachting, with a stop at the International Yacht Restoration School. The couple was interviewed recently by Soundings, and Mary Lou finally got the credit she deserved for collecting over 800 burgee graphics and 2,000 yacht club listings. They have also been told to watch for a lengthy (and they hope favorable) book review in The Ensign magazine which goes out to 50,000 readers. If you haven't seen a copy of the book yet, check it out ­ many of the photos were taken right here at Palm Beach Sailing Club. Type in "Yachting Customs and Courtesies Third Edition" on any Internet search engine (Google works great) and see what happens.

Food Fight!

(or, Beat the Chef)

Would you like to be declared "Chef Extraordinaire," see your name in lights (well, okay, on a whiteboard), and (possibly) hear the applause of your fellow members? Here's your chance! Friday night "Grub at the Pub" has developed a loyal following. Any Friday evening you can meet 30 or so of your friends around the Club bar as they enjoy each other's company and try to get Claude to sing. The food is provided by members and payment is always on the "on-your-honordrop-five-bucks-in-the-piggy" system. That's not going to change! Friday is still a no-reservations, have-fun night. But here's something new: A Food Fight! All right, you can call it a "Toque Challenge," or "Beat the Chef," but whatever you call it, here's how it works: any member (that means you) can challenge for the title of Chef Extraordinaire. All you have to do is select a Friday night, call Karen Sattelmeier, say, "I challenge!" and tell her your specialty. The club will pay your expenses up to $50 so you can put out your best effort, and Grub-at-the-Pubbers will decide if you get the coveted Chef's Toque for the night! Challenging Chef P/C Joe Tringali has signed up for Friday, February 9, and says he will stick to his tried-and-true menu of baked pasta, meatballs, sausage with peppers and onions, Caesar salad and garlic bread. YOU can be one of the people who decides whether Joe gets the award or flops miserably. All you have to do is show up on Friday, February 9, drop a fiver in the piggy, eat and vote! YOU can also show off your cooking talent. Sign up on the whiteboard in the lounge and declare your menu.

The Junior Board with Joe

The Watch is Changed

Some seventy ­ count `em 70 -- members and guests participated in our annual Change of Watch on Sunday, January 14, 2007. The formal ceremony included the official swearing in of flag officers, and a special induction of P/C Joe Fields into the International Order of the Blue Gavel. And, as if that were not enough for one day, history was made when Commodore Jim Sattelmeier swore in the very first officers of the Junior Sailing Club. Jr Com. Colleen Hartman, Jr.V/C Erick Fields, Jr.R/C Dana LoBouno, Jr.Sec. Gabrielle Nepa, and Junior Board Members Andrew Britton and Wade Waddell responded with a snappy, wellrehearsed salute when the Commodore declared them duly installed. They truly are the future leaders of this club. The formal ceremony was followed by a luncheon of traditional New England Clam Chowder and finger sandwiches, washed down by delicious Bloody Marys and Mimosas. After lunch, it was time for sailing, as our newlyinstalled Fleet Captain, P/C Robin Baker led a group of dedicated, well-fed sailors in a challenge of the Junior Club. The weather was perfect: the sun sparkled off the deep blue water and a stiff morning breeze laid down to more manageable conditions. All in all, it was the perfect combination of dress-up formality and goodtime sailing: the kind of day that made you glad to be a member of Palm Beach Sailing Club.

February is here and the bigger boats have a couple of events scheduled. February 3, Saturday is a full moon raft up at Munion Island. Some folks are going to start showing up early in the afternoon. We will have the famed Astronomical Calendar from Furman University so folks can show their skills at identifying night objects. I've head rums helps in this endeavor. February 23, Sunday, an ocean race is scheduled. If the weather permits it will be off Lake Worth inlet, start at 11:00, more details in the calendar as we get closer. As usual monitor channel 72 on race morning to hear what the race committee has to say. If the weather is dicey we have a high tide about 13:00 so we can hold it in Lake Worth.

The PBSC online calendar is being populated, so take a look. Dates have been nailed down till May when we are planning a race to Hillsboro on Saturday, a raft up inside the break water and a haphazard race back Sunday, or a motor up the ditch. There are some interesting places to stop at I hear. Look for more news as the dates draw near and remember the Palm Beach Regatta PHRF and Cruising Class race on April 28.

Monday Morning Sailor

Or, What I (Think I) Learned Last Weekend By Robin Baker The date: Sunday, January 14, 2007. The course: In Lake Worth, off the Sailing Club. One short windward leg, followed by a close reach, a broad reach, a jibe followed by a beam reach in semiplaning conditions, followed by a short windward leg. Wind: 10-12 knots with occasional higher gusts. The fleet: A mixed bag of one designs, including Snipes, Lasers, Megabytes, a Banshee, a Finn, and others. Ten boats total. The situation: In marginal planing conditions, there is a certain "inevitability" to what is going to happen. The Snipe, being a heavier, older design, is simply not going to jump up onto a plane, go as fast when it gets there or stay on a plane as long as a much lighter, powered up boat like a Megabite. And, as the lighter boats jump onto a plane and come up from behind, they will approach the slower boat with blazing speed. So, in order to win a race in a fleet of this kind, the Snipe has to excel on the windward legs. The Snipe has to work extra hard to get in front at the first windward mark. Winning the race then depends upon protecting that lead. To do this, it is necessary

to prevent getting "rolled" by the faster reaching boats on the reaching legs. So, what can the slower boat do? Two things, seems to me: first, as soon as you get on the reaching leg, position yourself high so that it is clear to the following boats that they will have a big penalty to pay by going way up to windward in order to pass you to windward, and that you aren't going to give up without a fight. Secondly, do this early. If you wait until the faster boats are on your tail before you go up to windward, they will be past you before you know it. Lesson learned by the Monday Morning Sailor: In marginal planing conditions, to protect yourself from being passed to windward, position yourself to windward of the fleet early, in order to deter the following boats from trying to pass you to windward.

The 2007 Boomerang Regatta was "Awesome"

by Scott Lindley Sailing Master We had perfect sailing conditions; the kids had a great time, and Lauderdale Yacht Club put on a well run, fun-filled regatta. "Awesome" is the only word to describe it. PBSC kids once again did a great job, with everyone showing improvement. Sailing conditions can be very tough in Fort Lauderdale. Inside the harbor you must negotiate local conditions like buildings that block or bend the wind, a sand bar that will put you aground

and obstructions like docks and channel markers. Outside in the open Atlantic, the Fort Lauderdale area is noted for rough, sloppy conditions that include big waves and high chop. These are conditions our kids rarely see and they handled it well. In the Opti Green Fleet, Cody Stansky was our top sailor finishing an outstanding third place out of 53 boats! Cody has moved up the ladder in finishes in every regatta and was tied for first place after the first day. His success comes from his serious approach to racing, and his attendance at practice.

Washington's Birthday Regatta February 17 & 18

What is said to be the longest continuouslyheld regatta in the United States (hey, you can look it up) will be held right here at Palm Beach Sailing Club beginning on Friday evening, February 16, with sailing Saturday and Sunday. Committee chairs Sue and Tim Slater are planning the event that will draw sailors from near and far for the weekend. Tim expects to hold a clinic on Friday evening, and says sailing will begin first thing Saturday morning. Opti's will be on an inside course, and "everybody else" ­ Megabytes, Vanguard 15's, Lasers, Laser Radials, Laser 4.7's, Sunfish, Snipes, and, well, every one else will be outside if the weather cooperates. Sailing Master Scott Lindley expects a large crowd, and reports that Opti sailors from as far away as the Bahamas have already registered. The entry fee is only $55.00 for single-handed boats and $85.00 for double-handers, and it includes a free tee shirt, continental breakfast and box lunch both days and one dinner ticket for Saturday night. Extra meal tickets and tee shirts can be purchased for $15 each when you register. Saturday night's dinner will be catered by the famous C. R. Chicks restaurant and is sure to be mouthwatering. People who aren't sailing but want to hang around with a great bunch of people are welcome to attend the Saturday dinner for only $15 per person. Call the TACK line at 881-8225 and let us know you're coming. Sue and Tim are going all out for this, and they really, really need some volunteers. The saying, "many hands make light work," is never truer than when you're helping with chores like preparing box lunches for hungry sailors, and it's a great way to participate in a fun club event. Contact Sue or Tim at 561-820-0021 or at [email protected] and tell them you're willing to lend a hand wherever you're needed. And thanks.

cont. from pg. 10 (second regatta ever). Ian Arthay finished a great 25th place. Jessica Fields finished 32nd and, in my mind, took the most prestigious award given at the regatta: the Sportsmanship Trophy. She was given this honor for helping another sailor who had flipped over during a race. Jess jumped out of her boat and helped the other sailor bail out his boat ­ all of it after she herself had flipped and hit a mark and did her penalty circle while full of water! She was truly amazing! LYC recognized her at the award ceremony and the top ranked woman Laser Radial sailor in the world presented her with the award. How cool is that! Parker Sargeant finished 35th. Cameron Grubb 43rd and Daniel Meltzer finished 50th. It was Daniel's very first regatta ever. He did an outstanding job and should be proud of himself! In the Laser 4.7 Class Andrew Britton finished 5th and took home some hardware. (Nice Job Andrew!) Our Laser Radial Team saw great improvement from the first day to the last. Brendon Greif finished 18th. Erick Fields finished 19th, and Lexi Coudert finished 20th. They got valuable ocean-sailing experience and learned a lot. In the Laser Full-Rig Class, Travis Ouellette, our newest team member, finished 6th in a fleet of highpowered Olympic hopefuls.

All in all it was a successful weekend, and I'm very proud of all our kids. We're all looking forward to Valentines Day & Washington's Birthday Regatta!
