COMMODORE’S COMMENTS
Fall is a time for Thanksgiving!
s daylight savings time becomes a recent memory, Fall is a time to be thankful for the great fun we’ve shared at the Club throughout this past Spring and Summer. Again, I want to thank everyone who has contributed to making 2006 such a spectacular year both on the water and off. Our Moorage Upgrade Committee has completed a study of the pilings in our moorage. The Board recently approved funding the first group to be replaced with steel pilings. This replacement process will continue for the next few years until all the pilings are state of the art steel. Meanwhile, the Finance Committee has been tasked with looking into all funding options to expedite upgrades to our moorage – replacing the existing docks with cement docks.

and we are in the final phases of redesigning the Bar, Flag Room, and potentially a Lounge Area in the North end of the Ballroom. The House & Grounds Committee is actively working toward getting this underway. They’ve done an exceptional job of getting the dining room updated. I didn’t know PYC had so many Pirates, but in late September over 120 members and guests enjoyed our Entertainment Committee’s Pirates Party an’ Pig Roast. The pictures on the front cover only show half the fun of the evening! Many thanks to Frank Tillman for organizing the pig cooking party (truly the best ever) and to Berkeley and Carole Smith for organizing the booty hunt on the Island. Several members brought their children and everyone had an exciting time!

gions. To find out more, sign up for the casual three hours of learning, sampling, and having a fun time! • With so much on the November schedule, we only could fit in one Cookout on Nov 10th. Be sure to bring the whole gang. Our movie masters won’t let you down! The following cookout on December 1st will also feature Hollywood’s best! • Stan Borys and the “Last Act Repertory Theatre Group” promise a hilarious night at my expense during the upcoming Commodore’s Roast. What did Diane and I do to justify this humiliation??? • If you suddenly realize you did not get enough cruising during Summer, pack your heater and join other PYC members Thanksgiving weekend for the “non – official” Left Over Cruise to the Outstation. No dockmaster, no schedule, just a fun time for all! • PYC’s 98th Annual Meeting is Monday, November 27th. Included in this important meeting are the election of your 2007 Officers and Trustees, a financial update, Committee Reports and a presentation of the 2007 proposed budget by Vice Commodore Heather Adams. Members will also get to select the 2006 winner of the “Boner’s Award” from a potentially long list of nominees. Another traditional award, the Larry Barber Trophy, will be awarded to the “Outstanding PYC Member of 2006”. • Invitations are going out soon to PYC’s Ladies’ Holiday Dinner on Dec 6th, entitled “Christmas Memories.” This is an event that always sells out quickly so please make your reservations early! • Speaking of the Holidays, Thanksgiving weekend is always a great weekend to decorate your boat or boathouse for the Holidays. We’ll again have prizes for the best decorated as we “Light Up PYC For The Holidays”. Fair Winds and Following Seas!

Bob Martin wasn’t to be outdone as he put together our annual Beacon Rock Cruise. I’m not sure what Bob did differently this year, but we set several records for participation: almost 40 club boats (16 sail boats) with over 90 members who enjoyed perfect weather, Bob The Bar area of the Club gets substantial use Sudlow’s famous crawdads, wonderful New York steak dinner, and great merriment celebrating at least two birthdays. The renovation of the Dining Room by the House and Grounds Committee is virtually completed. The 120 members and guests who attended PYC’s Salmon Feed not only enjoyed John LeDoux’s tasty fresh Chinook salmon with all the trimmings, but the new ambiance of the dining room. John’s motto throughout the planning and execution of the event was the KISS principle (Keep It Simple and Straightforward) and it paid off extremely well! Our Portlight Editors, at the suggestion of Ander’s Printers, switched to printing our Portlight on recycled paper the last two months. The quality is still top notch! Looking ahead at November’s Mix: • Don’t put your Hawaiian shirt away yet as it is almost mandatory garb for OCSA’s Beach Party, culminating the 2006 sailing season with a fabulous evening complete with live music and a silent auction. Sailors really know how to party! • November 5th brings a different twist to past wine tasting events – instead of visiting the local vineyards, we are bringing an Italian wine expert to PYC. Italy produces a wide variety of wines besides Chianti in their 20 distinct re-

don’t know if all of you have heard yet, but our Office Manager Shannon Thayne has moved back to North Carolina to be near her family. She has worked here since 2002 and has been instrumental in organizing and running the office in a manner that literally changed our landscape. Before Shannon came, it took two employees to do her job. She not only possessed excellent skills, but also came to work with a great attitude and a sense of humor. I will miss her skills as well as her friendship. I know that we all wish her the best of luck in her future endeavors. Now I would like to introduce you to Julie Reagan. She has been hired to take over Shannon’s job so please stop by and introduce yourselves to her. She has been training for three weeks with Shannon and will be an asset to our team. We have also hired Ron Sexton to assist Terry on the docks and with our maintenance. Ron recently moved here from Tennessee. We are expecting great things from Ron. Our Friday night happy hours are really taking off. If you haven’t joined us yet, please give us a try. It’s a great way to relax after the work week.

PYC ROCKS
riday the 13th turned out to be a lucky day for our PYC Auction. How fortunate we are to have so many members who put forth of their time and efforts to make this auction so successful. Kudos to our Vice-Commodore, Heather Adams, who worked diligently to put the event together. A big “thank you” to all of the donors, bidders, committee people and staff for making this event very special. Also, “thank you” to the young people of Southridge High School in Beaverton for serving dinner and to the Sea Scouts for their participation. During the Silent Auction, we enjoyed listening to the music of the Lowell J. Mitchell duo. After the closing of the Silent Auction, a delicious lasagna dinner, supplied by Ted and Betsy Leonardi, was served, along with a spinach/parmesan spread, antipasti, salad, various breads and a dessert of volcano ice cream, prepared by Chef Dale Richards and his staff. First prize in the successful raffle ($10,000+ raised) was a three-day trip to the magnificent Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas. The big winners were Frank and Sandra Tillman (who, at the time, were vacationing in sunny Mexico). During the oral auction, conducted by James Dean and Russ Kuhn, one of the notable bids of the evening was for member #1908, which was won by Berkeley and Carole Smith…..notable for the fact that Berkeley and Carole will be Commodore and First Lady in 2008. It appears PYC has raised approximately $60,000+ for our Centennial Year. The level of participation was so great by new and long-time members that we would have to reprint nearly the entire roster to properly thank everyone…so

Light Up PYC for the Holidays

Win Prizes for the Best Decorated Boat or Boathouse in your Row
PYC is always a very festive place during the Holidays. The Holiday Magic is even greater when our Boats and Boathouses are illuminated by Christmas Lights! Diane and I will be decorating our boat with strings of colorful outdoor lights over the Thanksgiving weekend. So please join the fun by decorating your boat or boathouse!! We’d like all the boats and boathouses lit up by December 5th, as the first Parade of Christmas Ships on the Columbia will be Thursday, December 7th. This year we will give prizes to the Best Decorated Boat or Boathouse by Row. Judging to be in early December (weather dependent). We’d also like to light up each row at night by putting lights on the row’s handrail via a photocell or timer. If you have outdoor light sets you’d like to contribute to the effort, please drop them off at the club (C7s or C9s). If you’d like to donate some electricity to your Row’s festivities or help staple the light strings, please let the office or me know. Let’s Light Up the River for PYC!!

November 10 Key Largo As a hurricane wreaks havoc outside, Army veteran Frank McCloud (Humphrey Bogart), Nora Temple (Lauren Bacall) and her invalid father-in-law face a worse storm inside the Temples’ tumbledown Florida hotel. Frank stopped by merely to pay his respects to war-widow Nora, only to find the hotel commandeered by exiled gangster Johnny Rocco (Edward G. Robinson) and his band of goons. Will the war-weary Frank step up to the plate to save the Temples? December 1 Niagara Marilyn Monroe is a shameless hussy who wears skin-tight sweaters and flirts with anybody in long pants. Joseph Cotton is her long-suffering husband who, nonetheless, remains obsessed with her. On a vacation trip to Niagara Falls, everything unravels; Marilyn and her lover plot to kill Cotton by flinging him over the falls, but their plan goes awry in this fine noirish thriller. This time around, Marilyn even … sings!

n September 27 some of PYC’s most enthusiastic golfers participated in what promises to be the first of many “all-club” golf fests. Twenty intrepid men and women played the “scramble” on Broadmoor International Golf Course’s challenging front nine. Expertly organized and marshaled by Linda Nurss and Gayle Timmerman, the event was followed by luncheon and awards. Longest drive was won by Howard Shaw, “KP” (closest to the pin) by Julie Hinkley, and the winning foursome, at one over par, included Bo Knab, Karen Owings, Ron Nurss and Larry Snyder. The event was such a success that the plan is for both a Spring and a Fall event next year.

Get out to the Bridge Club November 16. Men are encouraged to join in. Bring a little something for lunch and $2 to cover the wine. We start at 10:00 and are usually over by 2:00. There are rewards for top and bottom scores. The humor is good natured and your skill level is never questioned.

SECURITY
YC is fortunate to enjoy a very low theft rate. Listed below are some things you can do to help keep it that way.

SALMON FEED
n Sunday October 8, we had our annual salmon feed. Thanks to Fred, we were able to enjoy some of the best salmon of the season. Unlike the past several years where we have been supplied with farm raised salmon, this year was special; we had the luxury of enjoying fresh Chinook Salmon from the Columbia River. The salmon was prepared on the BBQ with a lemon garlic mayo glaze, slices of orange and a light dusting of fresh Italian parsley. The salmon was accompanied by wine, green beans almandine, coleslaw and garlic French bread. To top it off we were treated to a wonderful carrot cake. Although the committee did an outstanding job with little effort, the evening could not have been truly enjoyed without the excellent help of Fred and his staff. Thanks bunches for your efforts. Thank you committee; Jim and Julie Hinkley, Skip and Mary Ann Nitchie, Nancy Kirk and her friend Phil (the fire man), Bob and Elaine Sudlow, and my lovely wife Lisa. Together we made an easy, friendly time of working the salmon feed. So on with the tradition.

P I R AT E PA R T Y
rrr! A vast thar me hearties! PYC got into the “Talk like a Pirate” week spirit with a Pirate and Pig Roast Party. Over 130 pirate clad members and guests attended the fun filled evening. Barbara Peterson and Julie Hinkley decorated the club house in pirate style with skeletons and treasure chests filled with gold doubloons. A dingy excursion across the sea to “Treasure Island” revealed an exciting and fun filled Treasure Hunt, put forth by Carole and Berkeley Smith, along with helpers Bruce and Rachel Aschim, Nancy Kirk, and Cheryl McNaughton. The treasure hunt involved many sailor skills and was rewarded by fine pirate booty, claimed by Captain Don Dell! Brian and Donna Moore welcomed PYC Pirateers to a true pirate feast with a fabulous roast pig or two, slowly cooked over an open pit by Captains Frank Tillman, Bob Lyon, Jim Hinkley, Russ Kuhn, Ken Free, and Dan Dickson. First Mates Sandra Tillman, Sandi Free and Julie Hinkley served the feast with flair. The evening was capped off with entertainment by Freddie Anderson singing country ballads.

Locks Please lock your boat and boathouse when you leave the area.

Lighting Consider installing motion sen-

sor lights on the front, rear, and interior of your boathouse. Enhanced lighting on all rows would improve the moorage security.

Alarms Technology has advanced sig-

nificantly in this area. Monitored alarm systems are available for both vessels and boathouses.

Limit Access Please don’t prop open the

gate near ‘N row’, as this allows others easy access to the moorage. The same holds true for the automated gate to the PYC lower parking lot. If you see the gate stuck in the open position please contact the PYC office, or the security company and inform them of the situation.

Reduce Temptation Do not leave

valuables in plain sight in your vehicle or boat. In the Portland area this is the prime reason for vehicle break-ins.

NEW MEMBERS
PYC welcomes new members this month. (look for the stars and say hello!) Stephen and Sandra Gordon own a 35’ Carver, Shangri-La. Stephen works in Sales at IBM. The Gordons live in NW Portland. Tom and Sarah Ronne have one daughter, 31, and own a 37’ cruising sedan, Saragosa. Tom’s business is Lakeland Properties, Inc. Tom and Sarah reside in Lake Oswego.

Burglars search for the easiest target of opportunity. Locks, lighting, alarms, limited access, reduced temptation, all decrease the odds of a burglary. At this time the PYC Manager and Board of Trustees are researching various ways to enhance our overall security posture. Please do your part to help keep the bad guys on the other side of the fence.

he two jumped straight up out of the water next to the boat facing each other several feet above the surface and dove back in as if performing at a Marineland show. But these porpoises weren’t, they were offshore with their pals chasing and playing in our bow wave as we slid down swells in 30 knots of wind with gusts to 35. The autopilot held well but while the porpoises played a swell pushed us around too far jibing the main. First the preventer line broke and the boom swung across the boat and the stainless fitting holding the block to the boom broke and the sail swung to leeward unattached and free. After a brief discussion Craig Shambaugh took the wheel and with the help of the engine got us into the wind enough so the main could be brought down and secured. Within hours we were in the lee of Cape Mendocino and had to motor into Noyo River, our second stop since leaving Portland Aug 10. Noyo River is next to Fort Bragg in Northern CA and is shallow and narrow. It seemed we were entering a strange quiet backwater after the roar of the ocean. Next morning large sea lions did come on the dock, as Don Eudaly had warned me, but not on our forger. That night we anchored outside the breakwater of Bodega Bay and the next afternoon went under the Golden Gate on a strong flood with a growing westerly wind: perfect. The City passed us almost too quickly as one wanted to savor the afternoon sail. We stayed 15 miles south of the Bay Bridge at the Coyote Point Yacht Club in San Mateo. Our daughter Joanie lives nearby. Dick, the other crew, thought the yacht club was very hospitable as they made the showers sway the same as the boat. He was still rocking. Three weeks later Janet and I left in thick fog. The only way we knew we were going under the Bay Bridge is hearing the traffic and looking up and seeing the bridge’s underside. The fog lifted momentarily enabling us to see North Beach and Fisherman’s Wharf area. That night we ate in the seafood restaurant at Half Moon Bay or Pillar Point Harbor as they call it. The same restaurant I ate in 25 years ago while anchored there in our 27’ sloop. Before I

T

had calamari and beer, this time I had calamari and beer. This was a trip back in time. Our next stop was Santa Cruz where one of my sisters lives. The little boat harbor was a bustle with boating activity. As a transient boat we were end tied and had a front row seat. We were warmly welcomed at the Santa Cruz Yacht Club. Our departure from Santa Cruz was delayed a day. All but one line was cast off when a boat came in and told us that it was blowing like stink out there--30 to 35 knots he said. Janet said no way. Back for another beer at the yacht club that night. The next day proved to be a very pleasant sail across Monterey Bay and around the corner to Carmel’s Stillwater Cove. The days were getting shorter and a chill was in the air. Next stop San Simeon. There the bay was full of skittish Harbor Seals fishing. They followed as I rowed ashore but when you looked at them they would dive with a splash. Unless you are in a harbor most California coves and bays have a surge and a surf to deal with landing. This was no different. We were out of practice and almost flipped the dingy beaching. It was a short walk to the Hearst Castle entrance and there were no crowds that day. There at the Castle the tour guide told us that the haze in the air, we had noticed it the day before, was from a fire farther south. That fire was just controlled several days ago. San Luis Obispo Bay is not a particularly pretty bay. But what was interesting there was the realization that sea lions had basically taken over. The only floating dock was protected by a chain link fence. From there we made the run around Pt Conception. Winds were predicted to gust to 30 in the afternoon. So we left in the early morning. We tucked into San Miguel Island, the western most of the Channel Islands, and that night at anchor the winds did gust to 30. The next day the weather was calm and warm and we walked the long clean white sand beach and met the island ranger of the National Park Service. San Miguel along with four other channel islands is a National Park. That afternoon the park ranger lead a group to the east point to view juvenile sea

elephants. It was a long but beautiful walk with views of Santa Rosa and Santa Cruz Islands farther to the east. The ranger told us that 22 to 23 thousand sea lion pups are born yearly on San Miguel Island alone! But hook worm has infested the herd. Maybe there will be a balance. After seeing the sea elephants at the east end we realized that the group of 25 on shore were also young sea elephants. We should have realized this as they did not bark but communicated by grunts and burps to the degree that they would have made any teenage boy envious of their ability to make gross noises. After stops at Santa Cruz Island we sailed for Santa Barbara and took a slip. Checking in to Canada is easier. They wanted to see the ship’s papers, get paid up front and then put a dye in the head so we wouldn’t discharge into the bay. We visited a friend there who drove us around and let us use her washing machine and drove us to a grocery store. We also visited the Mission. Back at Santa Cruz Island for one night we ran into a couple we had met in Hawaii! They were not on their own boat so when they hailed us from kayaks it was a real surprise as they live in Balboa. We were invited for drinks on the boat where they were guests and stayed for dinner. The next morning we went on to tiny Santa Barbara Island for the night then to Catalina. There, at Catalina, we anchored in one of the only coves facing the mainland that doesn’t have mooring buoys. There were plenty of empty buoys but unlike 40 years ago boats now have to pay and it is not cheap. Now we are docked in Alamitos Bay in Long Beach, at a dock owned by my other sister. We’ll stay here about 3 weeks then on to Newport Beach, San Diego and Mexico the first part of November. Thank you Wylie Grabisch for use of your CA chart books. And hello to all PYC members. Hope all is well with each of you.
