The Good Old Days
An Anarchist takes us down a SoCal ‘memory lane’ for the holidays.
For those who remember, Southern California had a vigorous ocean racing fleet in the 1950s. These were the days of varnished spinnaker poles, overhangs, South Coast winches, red lead bottom paint, kenyons, RDF, and NALU II’s chickens. HILARIA never had an engine, and SALLY was the prettiest 10-meter in the world. Fee free to add to this list of boats and sailors.
