Bill, on the left, is a fixture in the Southern California racing scene. Though he successfully campaigned a Santa Cruz 52, Relentless, in countless offshore races and a Farr 40, Viva la Vida, in its class events, his heart lies with classic wooden boats.


John and Bill are making sure Chubasco is well maintained and appropriately modernized; giving her another 80 years of sailing and gracing our waters. They are co-owners in another historical wooden boat, Sumatra, a Lapworth 50.
