In other news AYC members Jerry Vanderveen, Andy and Stephanie Schwenk along with some Bellingham and Orcas sailors invaded the Richmond Yacht Club in SF for a weekend of sailing in their "Big Daddy Regatta" with an escape from Alcatraz theme. Washington State patrol officer Bart Maupin and his merry band of miscreants were easy to spot each with their prison garb orange overalls and the officer in his reflecto shades. They returned with a second place pickledish and lots of damp gear!
