When and If  belonged to General George S. Patton; he had the 63 foot Alden schooner built in Wiscasset, Maine, in 1939.  He is quoted as having said, "When the next war is over, and if I live through it, Bea and I are going to sail her around the world."  But, General Patton died in an automobile accident in Europe shortly after World War II ended.  The National Sailing Hall of Fame is hosting When and If in Annapolis until November 2.  For info check out  http://www.nationalsailinghalloffame.org 
CCV AWARDS PARTY AND YEAR END BASH, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 10th at the Radisson Hotel in downtown Hampton.  Cocktail Party starts at 7 pm.  Heavy hors d'oeuvres (heavy enough for any self-respecting racer to make a meal), free wine and beer as long as it lasts (get there early), and cash bar.  Live music - THE PHUN DOCTORS.  Put the taps on your boat shoes and go dancin'!  If you have not yet made your ressies, call Karl Petersen at (757) 440-8772.
