2014 US National Championship

2013 West Coast Championship Regatta Report

The 2013 West Coast Championship was held March 15-17 in conjunction with the San Diego NOOD regatta.  The fleet sailed out of Navy Yacht Club, which is only 10 minutes from the starting area in the broad, smooth, un-trafficked waters of South San Diego Bay.

Thursday March 14: Many boats arrived this day to get set up, practice, and/or get measured by US Class Measurer Warren McArthur.  It was good to see Warren back with the fleet after he was rear-ended last year on his way to the…

San Diego One Design Weekend (sort of) - June 2 & 3

Only 3 boats showed up for this; Brad and Trick on the B5 1161, Steve and Gerrit on the Shu2 1183 and Terry and Brian on the B6 1187. Forecast was for 5-7 kts out of the ssw, veering more west in the afternoon. As is often the case in San Diego, the summer winds were more than forecast. Most of the day was sailed in 8 to 12 kts, with some lighter stuff thrown in occasionally. With the ssw wind direction, we sailed in the main channel near the harbor entrance off of the Navy's submarine…

2012 West Coast Championship Regatta Report



As has been the custom for the last several years, the West Coast Championship was sailed as part of the San Diego NOOD regatta. Tireless So Cal I-14 fleet promoter Brad Reutenik has been coordinating the regatta with the NOOD folks, and his efforts make this regatta a favorite of the west coast fleet. He even went so far as to attend the off-site skippers meeting and bring the information back for an on-the-beach meeting for the fleet.

A total of 10 boats registered for the…

Stephen,

thanks for the note! It's been a few years since I sailed a 14 and I love seeing the advances in the design and rigging.  It looks like you have a fine project going on.

Thanks Steve,  good to meet you in Hawaii.  Looking forward to progress reports on the new build.

Stephen, I don't know anyone bringing a boat East.  Why don't we both ask around (I will be in Annapolis in a few weeks)?  There is no rush, it's the end of our regular sailing season here.  Can you call me at 443-614-0120 and we can work out the details?  Thanks, Mike Baird

Yeah, I'm looking for more horsepower.  Like you would add a blown V8 to a 40's Ford.  The mast location on this Dutch boat is very far aft, so I think the fit could be made.  And this boat carries a full chine, so the aft surfaces are extremely flat. It's far more stable than a Thistle and much less tender.  It's got a trapeze as part of the original rigging, but we have yet to use.  The jib would be cool, also.

   Because there is no Schakel class left, and mine is the only Schakel in the US, I don't have to abide by class rules:  Thus, I am customizing the boat to my standards and not class standards.  After a few years in a dinghy or two, I have some ideas that I've been trying out.  I think a modern mast and main/jib is in order.  My theory with this boat from day one has been:  Take everything too far, fail, then bring it back a notch.  Mike

Stephen, I am interested in the CST carbon fiber mast you have for sale.  Is it still for sale?  I have restored a 1967 Schakel dinghy built in Holland.  It was probably modeled after 14's of that era. It's all mahogany and visciously fast.  I have added NACA 0012 foils replacing the rudder and daggerboard, with the notion of hot-rodding the boat.  

Now I see your carbon fiber mast for sale.  It should be a good fit for this project. The boat currently has an old Proctor-style aluminum mast that weighs over 30 pounds.  I can barely raise it.  I'm looking for a lighter spar and mainsail.  Let me know what you think and if the mast is still for sale,  Mike

Hey Stephen, thanks so much for the invitation. I would love to come out to train next weekend. Feel free to give me call at 650 740 8116 or send me an email at ndelfino@ucsd.edu to work out the details.

I look forward to it!

Nicolas

Thanks Stephen. Yes, my dad picked it up years ago in rough shape and did quite a bit of restoration work on it. Dad thought it might be a Uffa Fox design built in the 30's but we have found no documentation. We're actually looking for a buyer. It's located on Bainbridge Island near Seattle. Let me know if you know anyone who would be interested. Here's the CraigsList ad: http://seattle.craigslist.org/kit/boa/2693322814.html

Thanks.
