These are the boats whose spinnakers we have come to recognize, we hope mostly looking off our stern.  The racing couldn't happen without other dedicated skippers and crews who are out there on a regular basis.  It's all in fun, but we want to win.  The better they are, the better they make us.


A special thanks to the people who form the race committees.  They are unsung heroes who make it possible for us to enjoy the sport.  Thanks Ladies and Gents!

Warlord and Spitfire dock near us, have PHRF numbers close to Thunder's and

we've been racing against them for many years so our competition with them is especially fun.

If I haven't got your name, or any of the information regarding your boat is inaccurate, please let me know.  Also, your humble Webmeister is rather paranoid about protection of personal information.  In that spirit he has only used initials for last names of most of the people on this site.  If your boat is shown here and you would like your full name included please write.  In that regard, if you would like to be removed from the website entirely I will do that as well.  Email can be sent to Jeff at:  ThunderWeb (at)   Just insert the @ symbol and collapse the address.  My address is presented this way to keep email scavengers from harvesting it from the website.  (I told you I was paranoid.)




Semper Fi

Captain Jack G.    Santana 30

Jack passed away in 2005.  It was a real loss to the local sailing

community as well as the loss of a good friend.







While we try to be good sports, we do sometimes derive entertainment from the mishaps of the other boats.   We don't wish anyone actual harm, but a good spinnaker broach can be grand fun to watch. 

And, truth be told, we've had our share of hourglasses, shrimping and the like.






Our friend Chris from Spitfire has taken umbrage at the inclusion of their (self proclaimed) rare hourglass.  To remove the image would be a serious breach of this journalist's solemnly held responsibility to present the absolute unvarnished truth.  More or less.  As long as it doesn't interfere with entertainment value. 

At any rate, the Webmeister promises that if anyone submits an image of Thunder in a state of serious dorkage he will publish it on this page.
