No. See picture below. It is the boat in the background.

I know the current skipper did not repaint it, so it must have been the previous owner, Randy Vidmar (sp?). He had passed away prior to my joining the club.

That # 60 is a familiar number, Chuck or Pete, wow long time ago. Good bunch of guys and gals when we were members. They sailed Santa Barbara's, Marble Heads, Infinity's and as I remember they added the Fairwind class.

That was Pete M.

He sold the boat to another member when he left the club when it dropped the ODOM class. The club added the SeaWind and for a time it was the largest class. Marbleheads sort of faded away when the newer faster designs obsoleted the older much slower boats.

Pete now occasionally races a Seawind and US1M. He is a regular at a Thurs "sail what you brought" informal beer can races at Lake Natoma.

Chuck has not raced in the last five years. He stayed on as Treasurer until last year when I took that on.

SMYC currently races US1M, Santa Barbara (the largest class), I-54 and SeaWind. Discussions are underway about combining with the Elk Grove MYC that sails those classes but uses the CanterburyJ in place of the Infinity. A combined club would sail all the classes and add an unscored Novice class where experienced skippers would act as mentors for new skippers to teach tuning, RRS and tactics. The two clubs have quite a few members in common so it will be interesting to see how the voting goes in January.

BTW , if you would like you can pm me your name and I will tell Pete you said hello.
