Subject: SSS Albatross wins Clipper!
After a seven year drought the SSS Albatross of Martinez, CA, places in the
highest class at the 45th annual Ancient Mariner Regattaheld Memorial Day
Weekend at Coast Guard Island in Alameda.The ship, lead by Boatswain Justin
Malone, completed two grueling days of competition and finished in the
highest regatta class. This caps a year in which the ship has met every goal
that it set for itself. First there ws the haul-out of the unit's 65-foot
ex-Navy torpedo retriever and conversion of it into a useable scout vessel.
This process included removing the torpedo ramp, modification of the fuel
tanks and building a transom as well as a crew's quarters. Then there was
the three week long cruise to Hood River, Oregon, a trip that covered over
1000 nautical miles round trip. Advancement was not left out as many of our
crew moved up in rank at our Bridge of Honor. Finally there was regatta
season. After a slow start, and disappointment, the crew buckled down,
practiced hard and was rewarded with the coveted title of Clipper Class at
the Ancient Mariner Regatta, Northern California's largest.
Skipper Chick Russell said "I an extremely proud of the Boatswain had his
crew. They have really outdone themselves." Boatswain Justin Malone stated
that this was one of the best moments of his Sea Scout career. Navigator 2nd
class Mike Powers said "This is one of the greatest feelings that I have ever
had." Several of the crew and officers openly wept at the awards ceremony.
