"Eventide was badly damaged at the start of the 2011 Master Mariners. She is safe in her slip in Berkeley and I am making a plan and exploring options for repairs and replacement rigs. I am extremely grateful for the support of the L-36 and Master Mariners community. Damage appears to be limited to her planking and obviously her rig. I will keep the L-36 community updated as to her status. Any previous experience or advice on repairing a large section of an L-36's hull is welcome. I can be emailed directly at gregmilano(at)hotmail(dot)com. Thank you for all of your support."
Greg Milano, Eventide

This is the boat that T-boned Eventide. It was on port tack at the time. Eventide was on starboard having tacked about 10 seconds before the collision. Nobody was hurt.

damage


Greg is an active owner who has been continuing to race Eventide. He sent this letter soon after buying the boat. Below are some pictures sent by Chairman Bob when he owned Eventide.


In an email from Greg, the new owner: I spent a lot of time at your website before making the decision to buy Eventide and really appreciated all of the information you've compiled.

I am very happy with the start of my adventure with Eventide - she's an amazing boat with an amazing history. She still has the red, white, and blue spinnaker used for the Argentina race in 1959 aboard. I'm looking forward to continuing her sailing days. I've been sailing on the Bay once a week in the last month and I'm keeping her in the same slip in Berkeley. I am still poking around and learning as much as I can about all the work Bob Griffiths did through the years. I look forward to learning as much as I can about maintaining her from other owners of similar boats. She's my first wooden boat and much larger than the Cal-20's I've owned in the past so I have much to learn.
