The original intent of the High-Point Series was to spread the racing around as far as possible. Most of active the boats are in the LA / Long Beach area. From the out-set, we only scored the Long Beach to Ship Rock race as one race, just counting the race over. For future purposes, I am recommending that the LAYC Howlands Lay-over be scored the same way, so as not to exaggerate its importance over other races. We have not had entries in the Boarder Run race, but I do think that we need to maintain some connection with the San Diego boats. Maybe there is some alternative, later in the year, as they are now schedule their race in late January.

The first race of our 2016 season has been completed, with the following results for the LAYC Opening Day race:

1. Radiant, Charlie Beven
2. Callisto, James Eddy
3. Psyche, Steve Calhoun

Final 2010 Race Results

Points for these races count towards our class High-Point series, and any other scheduled race, starting in Southern California between Marina del Rey and Newport Beach, in which 3 or more Cal-40s start.

LAYC Harbor Series
: no Cal-40s
Overall Points: No Parley: (6); Dani Girl (6); Callisto (2); Radiant (2); Lielani (2); Magic II (2); Nozomi (1);


  1. Races sailed against other Cal-40?s
  2. Races sailed.
  3. Number of Cal-40?s in the race(s).
  4. Degree of difficulty of the races.
  5. Races finished.

No Parley and Dani Girl both sailed 2 races involving other Cal-40s. No Parley and Dani Girl both sailed only two ?counting? races.

In Dani Girl?s Boarder Run Race, there were 4 Cal-40s, and it is the longest race in our series at . In No Parley?s victory in the race to Dana Point, there were 3 Cal-40s and the course is approximately half-the-distance of the Boarder Run race.

Based on the degree of difficulty of the Boarder Run race, and more Cal-40s racing, it is my opinion that the tie between Dani Girl and No Parley should be broken in favor of Dani Girl.

2010 Newport Bermuda Race 2010 - Attack of the Cal 40's!!!

While Sinn Fein was not able to threepeat her amazing win overall, the Cal 40 fleet made a real statement this week by sweeping their class 1, 2, 3! In addition Belle Aurore, Sinn Fein & ?Gone With the Wind? placed 3, 7, 8 in the overall standings for the St David's Lighthouse Division!

Congratulations to Peter Rebovich and team on Cal 40  Sinn Fein" who snatched up multiple honors at this year's Newport Bermuda Race, including the prestigious St. David's Lighthouse trophy for the top finisher in the IRC division.   This is the second consecutive time the team has won the Lighthouse trophy. "Sinn Fein" also won the Class 1 division for the fourth consecutive time and was the first to receive the North Rock Beacon Trophy.

Curmudgeon's Comment: =>
As mentioned above, Peter Rebovich's Cal 40 took top honors in the entire 123-boat St. David's Lighthouse Division, a category of the race which allows a limited number of professional crew, but only amateurs are permitted to helm the boat. However, they were also the first boat ever to win the North Rock Beacon Trophy, which was donated this year by the Royal Bermuda Yacht Club for the winner on corrected time among all of the boats in both the St. David's and the Gibbs Hill Lighthouse Divisions, with the later group allowing an unlimited number of professionals aboard, including professional helmsmen. -- http://www.bermudarace.com

2008 Newport to Bermuda Race

Peter S Rebovich, Sr. and his crew from Sinn Fein, the classic Cal 40 were the toast of Hamilton, after scooping up much of the silverware from this year's Newport Bermuda Race. Their haul included the St. David's Lighthouse, one of the most coveted prizes in offshore racing, together with the new North Rock Beacon Trophy for the top finisher in both the Gibbs Hill and St. David's Lighthouse Divisions under the IRC rating system. The North Rock Beacon Trophy was donated by the Royal Bermuda Yacht Club and awarded for the first time on Saturday evening. This is Sinn Fein's second consecutive St. David's Lighthouse win and their fourth consecutive Class 1 victory. Only one other boat, Carleton Mitchell's Finnesterre, has won the St. David's Lighthouse Trophy more often. That was in 1956, 1958 and 1960. Sail Number: USA-1818, Name: SINN FEIN, Yacht Design: Cal 40, Captain: Peter S. Rebovich Snr., Yacht Club: Raritan YC, Finish Date/Time: 6/24/08 22:43:57
