Film Bio Screening Wednesday

Corinthian Yacht Club’s popular speaker series returns to the club’s beautiful ballroom in downtown Tiburon this Wednesday evening, with the first film portrait by Life on the Water. The Sausalito-based enterprise interviews local sailors, racers, and watery souls at length and produces short films to capture the essence of the subject.

The first screening will feature Sausalito’s Ron MacAnnan, who has owned the 82-ft M-Class sloop Pursuit for 55 years. If you’ve ever walked down the boardwalk in Sausalito Yacht Harbor, you’ve seen Pursuit in her position of honor there. On any given day, you may also spot the 88-year-old MacAnnan, as he is aboard working on her more often than not. A notable exception: when Pursuit is out racing in the Master Mariners Regatta, which she has done for the past four years.

Filmmaker Oleg Harencar will speak at CYC on Wednesday night, and MacAnnan and another Sausalito icon, Hank Easom, skipper of the 77-year-old 8-Meter Yucca and sometime-helmsman of Pursuit, will be on hand for a Q&A. Preview of upcoming films about Easom and the late Harold Sommer and his boat Wander Bird will also be shown. The free event will start at 6:30 p.m. For more info and to RSVP see
