Barker is a forty-something architect from San Luis Obispo, California,
USA. He is currently building his sailing skills for that big trip to Alaska
a couple years (or more) from now, but sails his Lido 14 when immediate gratification
is needed. Otherwise, he charters crusing boats out of Santa Barbara. Contact
Greg at firstname.lastname@example.org if you get a chance to visit the California Central

Cameron Berkman - - Telecommunciations
project manager for Optus, the Australian telco . Part time sailing instructor,
wannabe retiree & liveaboard on something big, solid, wooden and capable
of sailing long distances in a single bound.
One of the few Antipodean yachties
on the list, he sails on Sydney Harbour most weekends dodging the ferries
freighters. He is an AYF accredited Sailing Instructor. Being "boatless"
gives Cameron the opportunity to sail on lots of other people's boats (it's
cheaper that way!), mostly Beneteaus, Jenneaus, Robertson, Cavalier, Etchells.
Cameron has been sailing and racing
seriously since 1990. A personal goal is to crew in the Sydney to Hobart
one year....one day....But the joy of his life would have to be the charter
cruises - relaxed sailing with good friends, fine food and wine, and lots
of laughter. Favorite places include Sydney Harbour, Pittwater and the
Whitsundays but the piece de resistance would have to be Tahiti (a Polynesian
word meaning "sailing across the clouds in heaven". For those of you who
speak French or Polynesian, you'll know I'm joking! $-> ).

Brian Cleverly -
is a young 60 year old Aussie now living in Sacramento, California. Brian
bought a boat and took up sailing, because everyone was doing it, in 1972
when he moved to New Zealand.
He prefers ocean voyaging and has 5 Tasman Sea crossings,
a solo circumnavigation of both island of NZ, two Hawaii to west coast
deliveries, and he left the "world" for 9 months in 1976 when with 3 buddies
he voyaged from Auckland to Vancouver Canada.
Not a boat owner at present, Brian currently runs
his own Sail Boat Refurbishing business, where he buys insurance write-offs
and refurbishes them for resale.
Chris Crandall -currently

teaching Jayhawks the rudiments of cognitive dissonance than out sailing
one of his (way too many) boats. This picture shows the produce of
his labors on the non-sailing part of this list, which is always misprinted

Michalak mini-shanty boat, a design I call a "Harmonica", but Michalak
calls something else.
Judy Cunningham & Captain Bill
Barlow on a friend's
Hunter 40 at Lake Texoma. Yes, we have different last names. Yes, we are
married. I (Judy) work for Dallas County Community College District as
a computer Help Desk Analyst. I'm the one who answers all our employees'
questions about application software we support.
Bill & I met in January of 1988,
when he walked into a meeting of Antares Yacht Club and announced that
he needed race crew for his Cal 25 on Lake Ray Hubbard. I volunteered to
crew for him, but only if the temperature was above 50 degrees. In February,
on a Sunday when it was supposed to be 51 degrees, I got The Call from
him, responded, and we've been together ever since..
Captain Bill has the "glamour" job.
He works for Tidewater Marine as an off-shore supply vessel captain, working
on a big boat off-shore for 28 days, then coming home for 14. Bill's an
ex-navy man, if anyone is ever "ex" when it comes to the U.S. Navy, and
learned to sail during the time he was working for Uncle Sam in southeast
Asia back in the 60's. He's been hooked on it ever since. It was late 1991
when he first sat for the Coast Guard Master's License exams, and was issued
his 25 Ton ticket. Now he has a 500 Ton ticket, and is steadily building
sea-time and credentials for the next level.
We live in Garland, Texas, a suburb
of Dallas, and still have the old Cal 25 on Lake Ray Hubbard. We used to
sail it, when there was water in the Lake. There's been quite a bit of
rain lately, tho, so we may be able to sail again before long.
Bill & I built our own Cape Cod
Frosty, a 6 foot, 2 inch little wooden sloop, which is a hoot to sail.
I learned more about boat building than I ever wanted to know. But that's
a story for another time.

Rick Emerson - - My
wife Chris and I have been messing about on boats for the last 15 years
or so, starting with a Sunfish, moving on to a West Wight Potter (still
a neat boat after all these years), and 10 years with a Seafarer 26, "Caribe"
(including living aboard briefly in the Yorktown, VA area), before coming
to our current love, a Baba 35 "One With The Wind". Most of our sailing
is on the Chesapeake out of the Kent Narrows area although we manage at
least one trip a year to the lower Bay. I've done some coastal sailing
including the delivery of a Tayana 37 from New Rochelle, NY which supplied
more object lessons in how not manage a boat than I care to admit to. I
also publish "Baba Salt" the newsletter for Baba, Tashiba, Panda, and Taswell
owners (e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org for details). In my non-sailing hours I
work as a small systems computer consultant while Chris is a corporate
trademark attorney. Interests bridging both life ashore and afloat include
photography and guitar strumming (the current inventory includes a pair
of Ovations, 6 and 12 string, and an Epiphone Joe Pass).

Born without a brain, Jay Fraser has astounded medical science by surviving
through his 35th year. He's
been sailing for 20 years ... with a couple of 10 year breaks. He lives
aboard his 1968 Islander 37, "Je Suis Prest." The name of the boat is archaic
french for "Look Out!"
Jay lives just outside of Portland, Oregon. He trys to fool people into
believing he knows something about graphic design, and enjoys talking about
himself in the third person.

Bob Fritz - - I began
racing a Star as a teenager on Western Long Island Sound in the 1950s and
did collegiate dinghy racing at Bowdoin College. After moving to Atlanta
in 1969, I
raced dinghies (mostly Lasers) and a J22 on Lake Lanier and did IOR racing
in Florida for many years. To satisfy my passion for long distance sailing,
I have delivered sailboats along the US East Coast, to and from the Caribbean,
to Mexico, and in the Great Lakes. In 1994 I did an eastbound transatlantic
passage to Scotland, in '95 a passsage from Scotland to Norway via the
Shetland Islands, and in '96 a westbound transatlantic from Scotland to
the Chesapeake Bay via Iceland and Newfoundland. My favorite cruising area
is the West Coast of Scotland. Presently, I own (with Jan Mohlhenrich)
a Ranger 26 and a S&S Pilot 35 which we sail out of Milwaukee on Lake
Bryan Genez - began sailing
as a teenager, but didn't get serious until moving near
the Chesapeake Bay in 1980. After several seasons of crewing for
friends, Bryan bought Capella, a 1977 Valiant 40, and moved aboard. Capella,
Bryan, and assorted crew - often including his Schipperke, "Jib" - have
sailed the US East Coast, Bermuda, and Nova Scotia. Bryan currently
works as a broker with Annapolis Sailyard accumulating cruising chips so

D. Cap Introne - - Stable
Isotope Laboratory Cap,
a scurvy dog, has been a boat person since birth. After ramming the Mayflower
II in a 28' Cruise-Along stinkpot with his father at age 5, he has continued
family tradition and has broken, smashed, rammed, and run aground boats
(both sail and power) on both Atlantic and Pacific coasts, the Caribbean
and the Gulf of Mexico. Brief stints as a commercial fisherman, yacht deliverer
and intercollegiate racing sailor yielded to a career in Oceanography at
the Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science in Miami, FL, the
Woods Hole Oceanographic Inst, The Univ of Rhode Island, Oregon State Univ,
Scripps Inst of Oceanography and finally to semi-retirement at the Univ
of Maine. Besides being thrown out of some of the worlds most prestigious
oceanographic institutions he has always managed to land a job near some
great cruising ground, despite a record of not being able to hold a job
at one place for more than a few years. An owner and lover of wooden boats,
he succumbed to the niceties of Clorox bottle sailing and backyard maintenance
and now owns an old trailerable O'Day 20 and various and sundry other small
craft. He is much in demand for crew, not because of his innate ability
or glowing personality, but because he knows most of the best clam flats,
mussel beds, or fishing holes and he always brings his own booze!
Guess which one is Cap and which ones are his children.

a year, before that a cute 26 footer for about ten years. Mostly into local
family cruising with dreams of taking off for a few years...maybe one day.
Just love reading the stories by YACHT-L folks who sail to far away places..
My biggest thrill was sailing in the Sydney to Hobart a last year aboard
a friends 40ft ketch. We had tried a couple of years earlier but retired
in the Bass Straite when the skipper busted his ribbs. Apart from that
I've clocked up a few miles on coastal trips and done a few ocean races
other than the Hobart. Everybody responsible for the running of YACHT-L
is to be congratulated its as good as any Yacht Club I know and I learn
so much from the messages.

Ken Miller - -has
been boating all his life. He has been sailing for 17 years,first
a 19 foot Mirage that he rebuilt form the bottom of Lake St. Claire, then
a succession of boats to Devil's Dream, II, a 1971 Tartan 34.
Most of his sailing is done on Lake Huron during an annual summer cruise.
He singlehands the boat because in his own words: "I'm much too obnoxious
for anybody to spend that much time with."
Ken is the Senior Editor of Great
Lakes Cruiser Magazine. It is a publication for boaters who travel
the Great Lakes, featuring three harbors each month. He writes for
and contributes drawings to each issue. Some of his art is for sale
through the magazine. In real life Ken is the manager of the Bowen
Branch of Detroit Public Library and a part-time square dance caller.
The calling supports his sailing habit, hence the boat name: Devil's Dream
--it's his favorite hoe-down. Ken is the artist who did the drawing
of the buoy on the top of this page..

I decided upon the pictured 12 ft Topper scow partly because I could moor
it in an apartment bedroom of yore...besides it was my first sail ever...when
I was ready for a cruiser, I needed the ability to anchor it in my garage...thus
My Other Sailboat is a Montgomery 15...I do have an emotional resonance
with diminutive sailcraft, I think sailing was one of those accidents in
my life...looking back, it was more than just a minor accident...it is
still too early though, for me to know what sailing will rilly mean, in
the journey ahead...at the present, it means being connected to a community
of sailors, and that is blessing enuf !!! 117.8 W 34.0 N

Brendan's Isle -started
sailing 30+ years ago on the Chesapeake while stationed at NAS Patuxent
River, MD. After careers in the Navy (Tom) and as Newspaper Editor
and Univ. Grad Program Mgmt (Jackie), Orange Park FL became home.
Cruising friends needing mail forwarding and message services planted the
seed for "St. Brendan's Isle, Inc." about ten years ago. Boats came
and went, but the first 'St. Brendan's Isle' (the boat) was a 50' steel
schooner designed by J. Murray Watts. The second was a 40' Hunter.
The third will be a cruising catamaran. We are sort of moving up
the technology ladder here. :)
Anyone passing through the Jacksonville/Orange Park area
is welcome to stop by. We keep a pot of coffee on ALL the time (old
Navy habits die hard). St. Brendan's Isle, Inc. (the company) will be moving
to Green Cove Springs just south of Orange Park very soon. We will
be one block from the waterfront (St. John's River) right up the street
from the Municipal (free) pier. If you cruise the beautiful St. John's
River stop by for a visit.

season in Manila is just starting to crank up, but we do have a few late
arrival typhoons stirring up the area. All in all, this is a good place
to sail, China Sea has lots of blue water and breeze. A typical race starts
out of Manila Bay on Friday night, ending sometime Saturday. We anchor
and just rest which always includes a few San Miguel beers and then there
is a party in the evening. Sunday morning all sail back to Manila. The
boat I race on is a S&S 36. The owner and the crew are all expats all
over 50 years old. We get our licks in and take a fair share of wins.
