For a guy who has spent 11 years regaling folks with tales of the high seas, Daniel Trent has precious little salt water in his veins. "I guess you could call me a daytime sailor," confesses the North Hollywood resident. "I'm fine if everything is sunny and calm, but beyond that, well, it's another story." Trent's preference for terra firma hasn't stopped him from paying tribute to those with the seafaring spirit, however.

As an instructor, Christopher Pecharka has given life to lectures for thousands of Southern California schoolchildren aboard the Pilgrim, the brig owned by the Orange County Marine Institute. But as an artist, Pecharka has toiled in the wings, selling only a few artworks to clients. "Many people think I'm a sailor who happens to be an artist," said Pecharka, who lives in Dana Point. "But I'm an artist who happens to sail and teach." And he is a lucky one.

The phenomenon might be called, with apologies to James Agee, "Let Us Now Play Famous Men." Hal Holbrook has built his portrayal of Mark Twain into a national institution; likewise James Whitmore with his depiction of Will Rogers. Offering audiences the chance to spend time with a colorful figure of the past can turn into a franchise for some actors.

Twenty years ago today, Dana Point Harbor got its first taste of champagne. With a crowd cheering him on, Bob Dahlberg took a firm hold on a bottle of vintage champagne and cracked it against the side of a piling, sending the bubbly and broken glass tumbling into the Pacific. Like most christenings, the one on June 3, 1971, marked a beginning--both of the marina and a daylong party.

"What a nice summer thing to do," my companion said. And it is, driving to Dana Point Harbor to see Daniel Trent play author-sailor-lawyer Richard Henry Dana in "Two Years Before the Mast," then dash a couple of miles to San Juan Capistrano's Camino Real Playhouse to see Tom Scott as writer Jack London in "Wolf! Jack London Remembers."

They're not the tallest of the tall ships. Nor in Sunday's hot, languid breezes were they the fastest. But the seven wooden sailing vessels competing in the second leg of the two-day Tall Ship Race from Oxnard to Dana Point drew hundreds of shore-bound viewers lured by the romance of the sea--the flapping canvas sail ballooning with a silent wind, the varnished wood, the coiled ropes, the smell of brine and tar.

One hundred years ago, it was called San Juan by the Sea. In the ensuing century, the south Orange County coastal enclave also was known variously as Serra and Doheny Park. But when the community celebrates its centennial Saturday, it will be as Capistrano Beach, a name historians say was given in 1948. The century mark comes as residents are facing what may soon be another identity change: cityhood with the adjacent oceanside community of Dana Point.
