|NO.57 Bao-Bab||Before she had an image of being gstand-offish
at first sight.h
Lately, we have been just able to participate in races, despite a shortage of crew members, with support from OHYC members. Come and join us and have some fun.
|She was built at Tashin Shipyard, Tainan, Taiwan. The designer is Mr. Robert Perry who designed boats for the Americas Cup. Most boats built there are for the American market, but 5 boats or so were imported into Japan. The name eBelladonnaf means eBeautiful Ladyf in Latin, so seems like a ePlump, Mature Woman.f She weighs about 12 tonnes, likes sailing in 8-12 m/s winds. She has sailed at a record of 9.9 knots.|

|NO.50 CALM(Catalina Capri 26)||NO.10 Paper moon|
In May 1997, she was at Minatohama Fishing Port, Karatsu, Saga Pref. It took 5 days sailing (day sailing only) to bring her here, averaging 60 miles/day, via Ooseki Habour ? Utsu Port ? Imabari Port ? Sakaide Port ? Hokko Harbour. This is the longest cruising she has had up to the present. Planning another cruising to break the record.
|NO.49 Super Scandal||NO.11 Tenzin Tamago-maru(Ingris 37.2)|
The name comes from the ownerfs connection to the food industry. She is an ocean racing boat. She participated in the Melbourne/Osaka Double-Handed Yacht Race twice. She sailed the whole distance of the Hong Kong/Osaka Race.
|NO.47 Phoenix||NO.13 Splash(Swing31)|
A new Splash was borne. Her debut was at the KAZI Cup Race, Kiba. The pre-race party was covered by Kazi magazine; photos of that party in her cabin were printed in the Kazi July issue. The race result was 4th place in the cruising division. We were overjoyed with the result as we were used to being more or less the lowest ranking. Now, we are eager to knock ourselves out in races, cruising and parties! ? ie ? Right now Splashfs young crew are maturing and, who knows, we may be leaving an impression before long.
|NO.46 MY RAINBOW(Yamaha my lady25)||NO.14 Manbou|
With 10 years sailing experience, but without formal sailing lessons, so totally an amateur. Just enjoying floating around Osaka Bay. Could someone teach me sailing, please? Apart from sailing I love drinking beer in quantity.
|NO.45 Bartolome'||NO.15 Eolia3(Y-31S)|
|Eolia!! She is not an air-conditioner made by a certain electrical company, though her name is the same! She was launched as gOur spiritual home,h sailing under sweet, refreshing winds and recalling the former glory of her namesakefs racing days. One of the OHYC members, our great senior, Mr. Moriyasu (83 years of age) has been actively sailing as in Ernest Hemingwayfs story. When we retire we are hoping to become full of sea breeze like him.|
|NO.43 Yuhou-maru||NO.16 RIKIMARU|
|Most of our members, company and family members, are beginners, so enjoy leisurely sailing. We come to the harbour on Sunday mostly. This year, we hope to learn more about sailing by participating in club races as much as possible. We are new members of the club and not familiar with the way things are run. So we would appreciate it if members could teach or show us stuff at the Hokko Harbour when we meet on the pontoons.|
