The Dartmouth Club of LA had its 16th annual Sailing Extravaganza on September 28, 2008. Typically, this last weekend of September brings us good weather and good wind, and this year was no exception, as the day was hot and the wind was screaming. Needless to say, we covered much ground since the boat was overpowered and was not starved for wind whatsoever. This year, we had a near record turnout with some new faces. Some first-time sailors got to steer the boat and practice their sailing skills under the supervision of skipper, Craig B. Douglass ‘78, president emeritus of DCLA. Our trip led us up the coast to Rancho Palos Verdes, where we came within several miles of Trump National Golf Course, the home of the famous 18th hole that fell into the ocean several years ago. Finally, our cruise returned to the Los Angeles harbor at 4:30, where our ever-popular cocktail, the Green Machine, was enjoyed by many. We hope our new friends will spread the word and join us next year for our 17th annual outing.
