An entry in this year's Newport
to Bermuda sailing race was towed
into Morehead City Monday after
noon by the Coast Guard. The ves
sel, Caribbee, is a veteran of 21
years of sailing competition.
The clutch of the Caribbee's aux
iliary engine went out Monday and
there wasn't enough wind for the
58-foot craft to make headway
through Beaufort Inlet.
The Caribbee was tied up at the
Gulf Dock, Morehead City, on Fri
day to await repairs. Capt. George
Swinnerton and his crew of two
spent their time cleaning the yacht
and answering questions.
Captain Swinnerton said the Ca
ribbee earned its reputation during
the four years, 1949-53, when it
was owned by the famous sports
man Carlton Mitchell, who has
written several books about sail
During this four-year span the
Caribbee won no less than 24 major
ocean races. The most famous of
these was the Bermuda to London
race. Mr. Mitchell and a crew of
nine navigated the course in 21
days and three hours.
Two Can Manage
While a nine-man crew is stand
ard for racing, two men can man
age the Caribbee on a normal
The Caribbee was built by Nevins
Yacht Builders, City Island, N.
Y., in 1927. A continuous main
tenance program has kept the ves
sell in A-l condition and she hard
ly shows her years.
Captain Swinnerton estimates
that it would take more than $125,
000 to replace the yacht, equipped
as she is now. The deck planking,
nearly two inches thick, is the
same that was laid when the yacht
was built. African mahogany is
featured in the interior and teak
is much in evidence on the deck.
Flies Old Ensign
The Caribbee is now owned by
Seabury Stanton, South Dartmouth,
Mass., sportsman. Mr. Stanton is
a member of the famous Stanton
whaling family of New Bedford.
The same ensign that flew over
the Stanton whalers now flies from
the mast of the Caribbee.
The cook is one of the most
important crew members on any
boat and racing yachts are no ex
ception. Ira Cook, a real pro at
the game, says he goes by his
initials "I. Cook." He is a constant
source of humor and can make
even routine jobs of scraping and
painting ^eem an adventure to
landlubber who visit the Caribbee.
Captain Swinnerton and I. Cook
predict that the Caribbee will have
the same success under the ensign
of Mr. Stanton that she enjoyed
with Mr. Mitchell at the wheel.
The Caribbee makes Morehead
City a regular port of call on trips
north and south each year. "We
enjoy the hospitality of you folks,"
says Captain Swinnerton, "and
Morehead City is a convenient har
trailer park is all ready for oc
cupancy; and use of the launching
ramp is free to outboard owners.
Fleming's reported lots of the
recommended cobla bait, croak
ers. Skiffs from Rainbow Inn had
good catches of sea mullet, hog
fish and a few trout. At Bunch's
the report was for sea mallet,
gray trout, hogfish and spots,
both from pier and boats. All in
all, bottom fishing in sound and
river is very good. Saady came
back with lis hogfish, and at the
yacht basin Sam Flippin, Kin
ston, reported 136 hogfish.
Inshore boats have had irregu
lar catches of blues and mackerel,

League teams will see action in
tomorrow's opening day double

Elks will play in the first game,
scheduled for 3 p.m. The second
game will begin at 5 p.m. when
the Idle Hour and Small Frys take
Manager Bill Harrell of the Idle
Hour plans to start John Lee on
the mound. John is a veteran of
three year's play and had a 2-1
pitching record last year. He is
10 years old.
Small Fry manager Brnest Lewis
will call on Robert Griffin to han
dle mound chores for his team.
Robert had a record of two wins
and four losses last season.
Southpaw to Pitch
Southpaw Eddie West has been
named by Moose manager Roy
Ellis to pitch in the opening game
for that team. Eddie did not pilch
last year but Mr. Ellis thinks he
will round into a top-notch hurler
in short order.
Bernard Leary, manager of the
Elks, is the only manager who
does not have a solid choice for
starting the game on the mound.
Mr. Leary says that he will start
Julian Sanders, a veteran, or Ron
nie or Terry Mizesko, both fresh
men in the program.
All of the squads will have to
come up with rookies who can re
place veterans who aged out of
the program or are not playing
this year for one reason or ano
ther. The Elks must come up with
pitching to offset the loss of Ber
nard Leary Jr., who aged out, and
some hitting to offset the loss of
Robert W. Williams, Theodore Tay
lor, Dick McClain and Billy Hol
The Moose's big job lies in re
placing the league top hitter last
year, Edward Sanderson, and other
Heavy guns, David Bell, Chuck
