    Me too! Those are great photos of some great boats.

    I've probably posted this before: At the time my family started sailing, Terry Klaus owned SEA RUNNER, an Alden schooner. She was nearby on an end tie at the Alameda Marina. We first saw BRIGADOON, designed by L. Francis Herreshoff, up in Glen Cove. Then she was named BRIGADOON OF BOOTHBAY and she was painted black. The Klauses sold SEA RUNNER and purchased BRIGADOON in 1976.

    If anybody is itching for a pretty, classic looking meter boat but can't quite bring themselves to maintain a wood six-meter, I have a line on of these "for free" in Oxnard! She needs "some work". LOL

    I did a ton of work on Brigadoon !!!!! Including many hours at her mainmast head, re-adjusting a tang angle.

    Though they are not in residence, it's about to get interesting at Hurricane Ian Cat 4, Ground Zero at my brother's condo, a 3 story cement building on the ocean beach at Boca Grande, FLA. They've got "hurricane windows," not sure what that means...the family car is wedged between 100 golf carts on the second floor parking lot. Boca Grande can get water coming from all sides as it's a narrow island with Charlotte Harbor to the East and the Gulf to the West.

    Here's a photo of Mayan at last year's RBBS along with Brigadoon and Hurrica V. Before Mayan's gaff, there was just a long batten pocket with the stiffest batten that David Hodges could find. With still too much backwinding of the main, the next revision was to go with the gaff.

    On a related, but sadder note, Patti Klaus, Brigadoon's admiral, just pass away yesterday. Their daughter Lindsey, a sailing master, is currently the skipper of Brigadoon. This year there was a bit of a mix-up with boat parking at the StFYC after the Friday race. She was aboard, and in charge, and demonstrated she was not to be trifled with. She's made of iron that one!

    A few more photos of the classics racing in SF bay, from last year's RBBS.

    I'd love to hear that story sometime. Saturday morning the manager of the club came down to Brigadoon and was apologizing profusely for "the parking issue yesterday".

    Commodore Klaus couldn't have been nicer about it but I'll bet it won't happen again. From now on there will be someone in charge of parking enforcement at the St Francis docks.

    I wonder who that was ... �� I think Eyrie knows ...

    Very nice photos, Jonathan. And from the deck of the St Francis YC? Impressive.
