After years of the daily grind, the last thing some people want to do is trim sails and haul halyards. So at Shark Island Yacht Club, captains from every walk of industry join together to pilot one thing--powerboats. Powerboats ranging from small craft to big yachts that the work-weary can put on auto-cruise while they sit back and hoist only a dry martini.

"Glor- or- or- ia!" 6-year-old Lindsey Daebritz screeched and warbled as she tumbled in the sand and watched a glittering parade of yachts pass her by Tuesday evening. Daebritz and her parents had driven in from Orange to see the kickoff night of the 87th annual Newport Harbor Boat Parade. Hundreds of spectators lined the candy-cane festooned bridge to the island and walkways along the channels. Two dozen boats strung with twinkling lights and holiday floats set sail at low tide.

I said goodbye Sunday to the greatest storyteller I ever met. For most of his 79 years, Al Stump was a master of telling the tale. He knew the rhythm of a good yarn, how to hit the beats, draw you in and deliver the payoff at the end. The late Huntington Beach resident practiced this delicate art in more than 2,000 magazine and newspaper articles, seven books and, most comfortably, across a table with cocktails. I knew Stump for only a year.

To entertain an out-of-town guest, Bill and Tina Wayt rented a surrey-topped boat and went tooling around Newport Harbor. For the Wayts, the experience was so much fun they did it again after the guest went home. As the Wayts discovered, you don't have to own your own boat to cruise Orange County's scenic harbors. And you don't even have to have boating experience.

Hottest ticket in town Saturday night? Undoubtedly Casino Cabaret '85, attended by some 1,500 partygoers at the South Coast Plaza Jewel Court in Costa Mesa.

As a chilling dusk settled over a snowy Georgia graveyard on Christmas Eve, 1960, sportswriter Al Stump knelt in a marble mausoleum and watched as an aging Ty Cobb, probably the most acclaimed and despised baseball player of all time, confronted the ghosts of his past. "He put his hand on his father's crypt, began to weep and said, 'Do you want to pray?' " Stump, a Huntington Beach resident, remembered. "Well what could I do? So I got down on my knees and prayed.

December 10, 1988 | PATRICK MOTT, Patrick Mott is a regular contributor to Orange County Life.
Late last month, far from prying eyes in an isolated, ramshackle workshop in the lonely neighborhood near the Long Beach shipping docks, Bobby Cornelius began building a rocket. It was a big one, nearly 60 feet long, and it took up most of the length of the shop. It would be fitted with two booster engines that would expel plumes of bright blue flame, illuminating the glittering silver coating on the fuselage.
