Harbor 20 Fleet 1 Election Results

Because of COVID-19, we couldn’t elect our Harbor 20 Fleet 1 directors the way we normally do, in person at the annual fleet awards dinner. Instead, the owner-members in the fleet voted online. The election concluded on the 15th, and the following slate of directors was elected for 2021:

  • Anne Wiese, Fleet Captain
  • Bob Yates, Past Fleet Captain
  • Scott Barnes, Treasurer
  • Tom Fischbacher, Secretary
  • Richard Loufek, Measurer
  • Ed Kimball, Scorer
  • Len Bose, Trophies & PR
  • Kathy Sangster, Hospitality
  • Warren Duncan, Class Board Liaison
  • Phil Ramser, Founders Rep & Mentor
  • Judy Weightman
  • John Whitney
  • Peter Haynes
  • Phil Thompson
  • Gary Thorne
  • Greg Helias (our newest board member–welcome, Greg!)

The new board of directors is installed and will start working for you immediately.  We’ll look forward to holding an installation ceremony whenever the fleet is able to meet in person next year.

Thanks to those of you owners who voted!  And thank you to Roxanne Chan and Tad Springer (both of whom have business demands next year that conflict with board membership) for serving us so ably on the current board.

Bob Yates, Fleet Captain 2020

Gary Thorne, Past Fleet Captain 2020

Harbor 20 Fleet 1 Election

Harbor 20 Fleet 1 Owner-Members,

It’s time to vote for our 2021 fleet directors.  Because of COVID-19, we can’t vote the way we normally do, in person at the annual fleet awards dinner.  Instead, each of you will soon receive an email entitled “Vote now: Harbor 20 Fleet 1 – Election of 2021 Directors.”  In that email, you can click the “To vote, visit” link to go to the voting website and cast your ballot.

Please vote by Dec. 15, as the election closes that day.  Results will be announced on Dec. 16.

Register by 9 am Wednesday, September 23 for the Harbor 20 Fleet 1 Championship!

The registration deadline is Wednesday 9 am for the Harbor 20 Fleet 1 Championships hosted by Newport Harbor Yacht Club this weekend, September 25 and 26. Click here to register.

Drinks and appetizers will be served at Newport Harbor Yacht Club on the deck upstairs immediately after racing on both Saturday and Sunday.  Everyone in the Fleet is invited to the social gathering after racing on Saturday and to the Awards Ceremony on Sunday. We anticipate that the Awards Ceremony will commence one hour after the last race. Face masks and social distancing are required.

Because it is unlikely that we will be able to hold the Fleet 1 Annual Meeting and Awards Banquet this year, the trophy presentation for the regatta will include the annual awards including First Mate, Grand Master, High Point, Rain or Shine, Phyllis Drayton trophy, Phil Thompson Mentorship trophy, and the Arthur Strock Service Award.  Please plan to stay for the awards and refreshments.

2020 Mentorship Suggestions needed by September 23

In 2018 the Philip Thompson Mentorship Perpetual was awarded to the first recipient, Bill Menninger. Last year 2019 the recipient was Bob Yates and it is time to nominate our 2020 Mentor of the Year!

We are now accepting applications from Fleet One members accompanied by their story of the applicant they feel worthy of the award and why. These stories will be reviewed by the prior year’s recipients, the donors and two Harbor 20 Fleet One board membersand two Harbor 20 Fleet One members at large selected by the above committee members.

The stories of mentorship will be shared each year at the award presentation.

Please submit your suggestions by: September 23, 2020


be sure to make your subject matter: MENTORSHIP

We apologize for the short window however; the decision was just made to present at Championships instead of the usual awards event in December.

✨It is good to share with others your abilities and even better to reveal to them their own✨

FOR SALE – H20 #115

Sale Pending…

I purchased the boat from Tom Schock at WD Schock in March of 2010 as the second owner.  This boat was originally day sailed at Big Bear Lake and then moved to Elephant Butte Lake in southern New Mexico after purchase.  This is a fresh water only boat.  The bottom paint is new, Pettit Vivid white with Pettit epoxy barrier.  The mast and standing rigging were replaced at the time of sale.  A swim ladder was also purchased from WD Schock.  The spinnaker was purchased new in 2010, Elliott/Pattison asymmetric spinnaker, and has never been used.   The mainsail, jib and running rigging are original.  The trailer tires are probably original as well.  The motor controller has been rebuilt and the electric motor runs well.  The two marine batteries have been on a battery maintainer.

The boat is currently stored at Elephant Butte Lake in my building and has been not been sailed in about 3 years.

Asking $ 16,000.00
