The San Diego Yacht Club posted Saturday, Sept. 3, as the date of the first race of a best-of-three series to defend the America's Cup with its catamaran against New Zealand's 124-foot monohull from the Mercury Bay Boating Club. Dates for the second and third (if needed) races were listed as Sept. 6 and 8. New Zealand has said the first race should be Sept. 19 but has indicated a willingness to adjust to avoid a conflict with the Olympic Games, which run Sept. 17-Oct. 2.

Under a sunlit sky, amid caviar, the tinkling of wineglasses and the blare of trumpets, Doug Peterson stood surrounded Monday by members of the San Diego Yacht Club, who might be wise to give him a second look. An American citizen--a Vietnam veteran even--and a 37-year resident of San Diego, this lifelong sailing enthusiast who was born in Los Angeles could have--and many say should have--helped the yacht club successfully defend the America's Cup.

The San Diego Yacht Club today announced that it will appeal a New York judge's ruling that forfeits the America's Cup to defeated New Zealand challenger Michael Fay. The nine-member SDYC board voted unanimously to take up the appeal after Saturday's recommendation by its organizer, the America's Cup Organizing Committee, to pursue the action. "As trustee, we feel our overriding responsibility is to protect the future viability of the America's Cup," yacht club Commodore Patrick Goddard said.

Old pals Paul Cayard, formerly of San Francisco, and Rod Davis, who grew up in Coronado, will be sailing their second America's Cups for foreign entries in 1995.

The San Diego Yacht Club, observing its centennial this summer, is a survivor. After drifting with the wind for decades, it is comfortably established in a permanent headquarters in Point Loma. For a while back in 1934, in fact, the clubhouse floated on a barge. The bad old days are remembered, if not celebrated, in a centennial year. Joseph Jessop, 86 and the club's patriarch, was the commodore in 1929, when only 11 of 200 members could pay dues during The Depression.

The San Diego Yacht Club will be host of the 1987 Olympic pre-trials regatta for Star and Soling class yachts, to be contested Monday through Friday. The pre-trials regatta is important for U.S. skippers, as it is their only chance to sail competitively in conditions similar to those in Pusan, South Korea, where the pre-Olympic regatta will be held in September and where the 1988 Olympic competition will take place. The wind conditions and water off San Diego closely approximate those off Korea.

Picture an America's Cup with boats not only from San Diego but Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Chicago and other American cities, all competing to play host to the next defense. That's a big part of the picture Bill Koch tried to draw Wednesday night for members of the San Diego Yacht Club. Koch's America 3 team retained the Cup for San Diego last year, and that's the first thing he would like to change--the part about for San Diego.

"The San Diego Yacht Club has obviously completed a very detailed assessment of our club and capabilities and now accepts that we have passed every test to be accepted as a competent challenger," media officer Frits Visser said.
