110 Class: A community at work

It’s not the biggest one design class – the International 110 organization is rather small. But what it lacks in numbers, which could be temporary, it makes up in spirit.
A t-shirt states, “Smoke a J, Sail a 110.” An ad campaign asks, “Honey, what are the ugly people doing today? Look! They’re sailing 110s.” The class website claims the boat to be the “world’s first sportboat.”
After a one-year postponement due to COVID, the 2021 International 110 US Nationals were hosted by the Hull Yacht Club in Hull, MA. And as is the case for any class closing in on its centennial, and all good classes, it is a committed community at work.
The Craig family (aka Clan Craig) organized it all on September 7-10 with the assistance of other Hull Yacht Club members who were declared honorary Craig family members for the duration of the event. While the budget for the event was limited, the creativity was not.
Five-time National Champion Tom Craig hand crafted the keeper trophies from his vast collection of vintage 110 parts, which he had been collecting for decades.
Following the world class hospitality at the 2019 110 Nationals in Inverness, California, the Hull fleet was determined to put on a lobster bake. Commodore O’Connor, who is known for his Hearty Goodfellowship, led the charge in the kitchen. Captain Peter Mahoney of the Fishing Vessel Windemere provided live, local lobsters and the fleet feasted like Kings and Queens.
International 110 President Milly Biller reported strong growth on the west coast and a desire to build boats. Under the leadership of Technical Chair Ross Weene of Rodger Martin Design, the class is reviewing a variety of options, including a kit boat using CNC cut parts.
Steve Clark, the former owner of Vanguard, was the prodigal son. He grew up sailing 110s in Buzzards Bay and returned to the class with new energy and new ideas on how to build boats. For this double-ended trapezer, spirit lives on
