Oct. 1, 1978 — From Big Boat Series in Vol. 18 of Latitude 38: "The first indication that this year's Big Boat Series would be a more spectacular event for spectators than for owners occured the day before the first race. Sumner Long's 79' Ondine was screaming along on a spinnaker reach in 25 knots of wind when she was hit by a small rental sailboat. The little boat was undamaged, the shipping magnates mighty ocean racer had been holed. . .
"The St. Francis Perpetual Regatta was an awesome event worthy of superlatives. The 46 boats entered was the greatest number ever and necessitated a 5th Trophy Series, the Atlantic. At 84' Christine was the largest entry ever, and together with Ondine, Windward Passage, Kialoa, and Merlin comprised the fastest collection of racing boats ever seen in these parts. Certainly there was a record number of spectators for the four racing days. . . Were there pretty women? Oh my! There were so many and they were so charming we cursed the fact we're not handsome. More important there were more women crewing than we've ever seen before."
