I raced sail boats in Marina Del Rey, California for about 25 years. During that time I won several Fleet and District Championships and two National Championships. The boat pictured here is my Santana 20, named "Assassin". It was built by Shock Boats in Costa Mesa and was a great favorite of mine. I won countless events with this boat including the Fleet Championships with top crew Sam Crawford, some of the district special events, but never the Nationals. Assassin was featured in a top racing & sailing magazine in 1977, and an article was included in the new owner's package from the manufacturer on the special methods and tricks I had for racing.
