Charles Howard, Captain/Engineer

The Sorcerer II Expedition is a global oceanographic mission to sample and discover microbes around the world, led by J.

Venter and his colleagues at the Venter Institute outfitted SORCERER II sailboat as a research vessel and set sail in Spring 2003.

Their mission is to build on and extend what is known about the vast unseen world of microorganisms, using the modern tools of genomics.

Sampling on Sorcerer II A major goal is to identify and publish a "genomic catalog" of the rich microbial diversity of our planet. They began their mission with a trip to the Sargasso Sea near Bermuda, where they collected samples of water containing more than a million "new" genes found in at least 1,800 species of bacteria, including 150 new ones.

JOLLY DOLPHIN

Jolly Dolphin
LOA: 63'
Class/Type: Three-sail bateau
Builder: James B. "Mr. Jim" Richardson
Designer: Designer Name
Launch Date: 1958
Owner / Skipper: Jack Zuraw

A living piece of Maryland history, the JOLLY DOLPHIN is a three-sail bateau, a wooden sailing vessel modeled on Chesapeake Bay oyster dredgers and built for recreational use.

Sometimes called a “workboat yacht,” it was custom-built for the Mick family of Delaware by James B. Richardson on LeCompte Creek in Dorchester County, Maryland in 1958.

Nautical Ned children's book Legend has it that the name ‘Jolly Dolphin’ came from a character in a children’s book entitled Nautical Ned by Clare Randolph — supposedly the favorite book of the original owners’ children.

From 1964 to 2007, the JOLLY DOLPHIN passed into the hands of a half dozen owners, the last having abandoned her ashore. So she was ready for a new steward when the current owner found her and began her restoration — an almost forgotten piece by Chesapeake history.

Click here to visit the JOLLY DOLPHIN website with complete history, photos and videos.

More information about the builder, "Mr. Jim" Richardson, can be found at the Richardson Maritime Museum .

The JOLLY DOLPHIN participates as a volunteer vessel in NSHOF's STEM Sailing programs.

AZZURA

Azurra LOA: 95' 01"
Class/Type: Jongert 3000M Sloop
Builder: Jongertt
Designer: Doug Peterson
Launch Date: 1998
Skipper: Captain James "Hubs" Hubbert

Designed by Doug Peterson, AZZURA was built in aluminium to Lloyds class by the renowned Dutch yard Jongert and launched in 1998. Together with her tall cutter rig, slim-line freeboard and low-profile deckhouse, she offers outstanding performance combined with luxury and comfort throughout. An interior design by Peter Sijm sees the dining area in the calm, mahogany paneled saloon fitted with two C-shaped settees opposite each other, providing plenty of elbow room and keeping the conversation flowing. There is also a wet bar with individual stools to port.

One of the most seductive qualities about Azzura is her sleek Doug Peterson lines, teamed up with the Jongert patented folding keel and hydraulic retracting coach roof. Click here to watch a YouTube video about AZZURA including a demonstration of the folding keel. Other features include an indentation beneath each porthole designed to collect stray water which, combined with an internal scupper system, channels this water to a grey water tank.

AZZURA has agreed to offer its services to the National Sailing Hall of Fame's STEM Sailing Education and Recovering Warrior Sailing programs.


ARETHUSA

Arethusa LOA: 60'  Beam: 28.21'
Class/Type: Gunboat 60 catamaran
Builder: Gunboat
Designer: Nigel Irens
Launch Date: 1998
Skippers: Phil & Wendy Lotz

The Gunboat 60 ARETHUSA features supreme sailing performance with her all carbon and epoxy construction. A high-speed racer-cruiser, ARETHUSA is actively raced with a crew of 8-10.

Arethusa-overhead Perfectly sized to reflect many owners’ long term needs, the 60 is the maximum size for owner-operation for a longer term cruise, yet offers the space and quarters for crew when the owners’ use can only be part time. The Gunboat 60 is perfectly sized for most owners’ long term needs.

Construction details include a hull laminate made of carbon fiber set in epoxy resin, fully infused and post-cured over a CoreCell foam core. All interior furniture and components are likewise foam-cored and are skinned with fine wood veneers. The boat’s carbon rig features a Marstrom rotating wing-section mast supported by aramid fiber rigging. Furling gear is from Facnor.

The underwater carbon foils are centerboards instead of daggerboards, to reduce potential damage in case of a crash. The rudders are also carbon, and retractable. The centerboards are controlled by hydraulic rams, with shear pins that let the boards kick up on impact.

Arethusa-spinnaker Gunboats feature a forward working cockpit, just abaft the mast and forward of the cabinhouse. All working lines are led to the cockpit, powered by three Lewmar power winches, so the boat can be easily controlled from the cockpit by a small crew.

The Gunboat 60 features a smooth motion, incredible spaces and the potential for 300+ mile daily runs.

JOBSON
REPORT

BY GARY JOBSON

Sailing Finally Has A Home

In 1998 I emceed a skipper’s forum on the Annapolis (Md.) City Dock, hosting the skippers of the Whitbread Round the World Race. Paul Cayard, skipper of the victorious EF Language syndicate, was on the panel, explaining to more than 1,000 people in the audience what it was like to sail in the Southern Ocean. Dennis Conner, whose Volvo 60 Toshiba sat nearby, was another panelist, and as he compared the Whitbread to the America’s Cup, the crowd hung on his every word. It was at this moment I realized the sport of sailing needed a Hall of Fame to celebrate the accomplishments of these great sailors and many others.

I had no idea then that in 10 years time the very place where the forum was taking place would soon be sailing’s permanent home. It’s long overdue.

ELF is an 1888 Lawley-built (Boston) ‘30-footer’ class cutter and has been a continuous part of American maritime culture for more than a century. She was built by George Lawley & Sons for a Mr. William H. Wilkinson in 1888 as a state-of-the-art racing yacht. ELF was built at a cost of $3,500 more than 125 years ago. Today she is on the National Register of Historic Places.

ELF sported a topsail that reached 68' 6" into the air to grab every bit of wind available, and like other racing vessels of her day, her lines and rigging were adapted and innovated from successful merchant ship designs. Following a lively career as a gaff topsail cutter rigged racing yacht, Elf pioneered off-shore yacht cruising in 1893, by being the first small craft to successfully cruise round-trip from Marblehead, Massachusetts to Halifax, Nova Scotia, an achievement documented by Henry Howard in his 1946 autobiography.

The current owner acquired the boat in 1971 is a somewhat dilapidated condition, and set out on a multi-decade effort to bring her back to her original glory. Today, ELF participates frequently in NSHOF sailing activities, including our educational programs to teach children math and science through sailing.
