Saturday, June 21st will mark the 39th Annual One More Time Regatta. The event is open to all wooden hulled boats and is presented by the Wooden Hull Yacht Club and sponsored by Del Rey Yacht Club. It is the only regatta run in Santa Monica Bay exclusively for wooden hulled vessels.

The original 1976 regatta was called the Bicentennial Regatta and was fogged-rained-no-winded off the water and was christened 'One More Time!' by its founder, Kathy Hellman. The first official 'One More Time!' was sailed two months after the initial Bicentennial race and was practically blown off the water. Keel boats surfed. Waves were so high that people on the committee boat couldn’t see some of the finishers when in a trough. One finisher, on the crest of a wave, took out all the windows on one side of the committee boat.

The race has seen its share of famous participants; the most famous perhaps was Santana, Humphrey Bogart’s 55 ft Sparkman and Stephens schooner who won her class in 2005. Other notables have included Baruna, Circe, Rose of Sharon and Lady Gwendolyn, a 1916 Sea Bird yawl.

America's Cup winner Dennis Conner won the 2013 event in his S&S Sloop Splendor.

A couple of the 1976 participants returned in later years: Robin, a PC 32, and Lark, a 46 ft PCC both having won their classes in 2006 and 2007 respectively.

The race is an ‘equal opportunity regatta’ as split rigs have won as many overall trophies as sloops. Split rigs won overall in 2002, 2007 and 2008, the latter having been won by Patience, a 36 ft Herreshoff ketch.

After the race, trophy presentations and post-race party will be held at Del Rey Yacht Club in Marina Del Rey.
