In the summer months, the course from Avalon, Catalina Island to Long Beach, on the mainland was often like a freeway. Sailing Ranger home on a Sunday afternoon golly reach, was a target rich environment. I made no attempt to avoid passing another sailboat close to weather. Often, the poor victim had no warning of the impending "Schooner Eclipse". I left many a skipper surprised and in awe.

Hahaha, it's the yawl that's had to get out of the way in that one.
