Los Angeles Yacht Club LAYC


For those who want to make an artistic or advertising statement on a spinnaker, UK Sailmakers has several options to offer. We have suppliers who can photo-print onto spinnaker cloth, paint images on spinnaker cloth, create adhesive lettering, or for simple images, we can “inlay” an image made out of colored spinnaker cloth. For many years spinnaker inlays were the only method decorating spinnakers. Modern inks and printers allow for much more detailed images. Talk to your local loft to see about adding a picture, logo or design on your next spinnaker.

This Elan 310, has the image of the Briton warrior queen Boudica. In 60 AD she led an uprising against the Romans who had invaded England. Her troops forced the Romans out of several towns across Wales and England, including Londinium, which later became London. As a result, Boudica is an important cultural symbol in the United Kingdom. Her fierceness on the race course must be respected.

Aaron Hall with Signet Marine is taking charge over Martin Ball's diesel engine repairs and service in the South Bay. Here is another Back Cove 33 "Kaholo" out of King Harbor Yacht Club with a Cummins QSB5.9 main engine and Kohler Generator.... Just check out this engine compartment, plenty of natural lighting and loads of space to work. Even got that small zinc on the unserviceable side of the generator you cant even see or touch good to be a "jockey" mechanic for this job...

Here is a perfect example where a flatter and/or smaller spinnaker would allow this Farr 395 to sail under greater control. This full-sized, running spinnaker, is making the boat heel to the edge of control. In higher winds, the wind angle for a running spinnaker is very narrow, between 147-162° true angle. Any deeper and the sail is unstable; any higher and the boat heels too much. A flatter A3 is usable on most boats between 140-157° true angle in winds over 20 knots. Another option for strong winds is to have a small spinnaker that flies off the fractional-height halyard.

After I wrote this post, I sent it to Geoff Bishop of UK Sailmakers Fremantle, Western Australia. The Farr 395 GIDDY UP shown in the photo is owned by James Halvorsen, one of Bishop's customers. Not wanting to create problems, Geoff ran this article idea past Halvorsen who said, “That picture was taken during a social race where we only took one asymmetrical for the day sail. Sure enough, for five minutes we were caught out with too much sail.” Geoff went on to say, “But the good news is GIDDY UP had blown out their A3 in the Exmouth race earlier this year and Halverson still haven’t placed the order for the replacement, so he thought the article was a very good reminder to order a new sail.” This post was a win, win all around.

Distance and coastal racing require different skills than windward leeward races. Many sailors like that maneuvers can happen slower and there is less need for a full complement of crew when not sailing faster paced 1-2 mile windward leewards. But to distance race well, your sail inventory has to be increased to cover for different reaching angles at a greater range of wind speeds. Therefore, reaching spinnakers, Code Zeros and staysails will greatly improve your distance racing results. And as James Halvorsen will tell you, the longer you are on the water, the greater the chance you have of being “caught out.”

Griffith Series
The westerly enabled most of the competitors to lay the harbor entrance without tacking and from there they were off on a strong downwind leg. A welcome addition to the fleet was Bill Lee’s classic sled, MERLIN, who came out as the scratch boat. The long beat from Island Chaffee back up the harbor proved eventful with the fleet gradually compressing as they approached the finish line. First home was the beautiful Cal 40 MYSTIC. The fight for second was one for the ages. PARTICIPANT was coming in strong on starboard from a long way out, but to leeward moving considerably quicker was MERLIN. PARTICIPANT was clearly laying the finish, but MERLIN would need to tack onto port to cross the line. Everyone on the signal boat pulled out phones and started taking pictures as this had to be very close. About four boat lengths below the line MERLIN made her final tack onto port to cross the line, but PARTICIPANT, already in the zone, was closing on the line and it was unlikely that there would be space to allow MERLIN to tack to starboard for the final few feet at the line. MERLIN executed a very clean duck behind PARTICIPANT’S stern, swinging back up to close hauled and then shooting the line.

Los Angeles Yacht Club®

The purpose of the Club is to promote good fellowship among its members and to encourage, guide, and develop the sport of racing sailboats and cruising vessels of all types. The purpose of the club has expanded in recent years to include passing on the tradition of excellence, knowledge, and nautical safety as well to the broader community.

Beginning in 1901, with the name South Coast Yacht Club, Los Angeles Yacht Club® has evolved from an inner harbor outpost for yachting enthusiasts, to a modern-day, family centered organization. LAYC® is a great jumping off point to our exclusive Howland’s Landing facility at the west end of Catalina. We provide a great social environment for friendship and camaraderie with fellow yachtsmen and their families.
