NEWPORT 30 BANQUET ON NOVEMBER 15th
Angel Island Cruise, October 4, 2003
invitation from your Commodore
The recently completed Newport
30 cruise was an overwhelming success. It was great to see
so many new and familiar faces out on the water enjoying their Newport
30's. Riding high on this wave of camaraderie, it is my pleasure
to invite all Newport 30 owners, family, crew, and friends of our
fleet to the "Year End Celebration and Banquet".
We have an exceptionally attractive venue this year to hold our
N-30 party, one of Point Richmond's most cutting-edge dinning establishments.
Many of you will remember from years past, the landmark in our Bay
Area neighborhood known as POINT ORIENT. Like last year's
varnish, that old restaurant has faded away to nothing more than
a distant memory. It has been completely remodeled and reopened
about a year ago under the name of Suzhou (pronounced Sue-Joe).
The new owners, Murray and Lucy, have given me their personal word
that no one in our fleet will leave disappointed. Please take
note of the date, time, and details, for this is one dinner party
that you won't want to miss.

This November 15th gathering is also
an excellent opportunity to expose future sailors, friends, and
potential crew to the Newport 30 Association. We are in desperate
need of your input to help us shape our organization.
Our goals for the 2004 Year are to provide:
- Increased Communication & Support
between all boat owners
- A minimum of two organized overnight Newport 30 Cruises (to
exotic ports : Napa, Stockton, Benicia, as examples)
- Sailing, Boat Handling, and Maintenance
Education for N-30ís
- Guidance and support for those
desiring to race their boat
Angel Island Cruise, October 4, 2003
Angel Island, October
On Saturday, October 4th, 13 Newport
30s gathered in Ayala Cove for a fantastic feast on Angel Island.
Alphabetically: ALOHA, FAST FREIGHT, GREAT ESCAPE,
HARRY, MANAWAHUI, MUTUAL FUN, RUCKUS,
SEAWALKER, TALISMAN II, WAHOPE II, YACHYD
DA, ZARPA, and ZEEHOND, each arrived with fun-loving
crew to enjoy beautiful weather, exceptionally fantastic food &
wine, and the best of company.
Our Commodore, Gary Boell, left ZEEHOND
moored in the cove on Wednesday, to insure the very best raft location
for our Fleet. Commuting between his home in Pt. Richmond,
Angel Island, and ZEEHOND, he brought a gas bar-b-que and
more food than 70 hungry sailors could consume. Andy Fromm
generously opened his floating wine cellar for the Fleet's enjoyment.
Gary & Megan (ZEEHOND) handled non-stop
food, while some of the "sportsmen" organized a Bocce
tournament. Bob McGowen (ALOHA) performed yeoman duties
with an inflatable shore-boat. SEAWALKER introduced
us to its new parent, Stephen Scherr. HARRY, one of
the last Newports to arrive, brought a crew of 13. Frank &
Joanne Navarro arrived with friends on MUTUAL FUN, but Anthony
and his girlfriend arrived on the Ferry. Paul & Lynn Von
Wiedenfield brought their own party aboard RUCKUS.
I don't think they ever miss a Newport 30 event. Lance Elberling
& Marylou Clarke arrived on TALISMAN II. They keep
their boat immaculate. Tyron David, a new Parent of MANAWAHUI,
arrived at Angel Island in his dinghy. It was nice to meet
him, and he was a door prize winner. Jack Gill arrived very
late, having a scheduling conflict for YACHYD DA. Bob
Harford (FAST FREIGHT) is starting to plan the sequel cruise
to Petaluma for next spring.
