Oh My God!  John, those two boats in attachment 4 are Shields 30s.  BARBARA on 
the Left and MEDORA on the Right.  They belong to the Naval Postgraduate School 
in Monterey.  I campaigned on MEDORA for the entire year of 1983 (when I should 
have been working on my masters) and actually qualified and went to the Shields 
Nationals (placed 10th.)  The Monterey Peninsula Yacht Club has a Shields 
fleet.  You can see some of the club boats trashed on the other side of the 
marina.  Very depressing.  
Here's a photo of me with the MEDORA crew back when I had hair (and the abs of 
a 27 year old!) from "That Championship Season!"
Boat US ran a feature on this phenom in their Jan 04 issue that I also attached.
This made my day!!!  Not!!!

Note the link from Ted.  I've seen this big boys lounging around in Monterey 
and they're not kidding.

Please check out the below link and forward it to the sail and boating club 
members.  It made me realize that our bird problem was not so bad.
