Big Deal as he said himself ... It is all about the crew, the money and time spent. Smart move to get onboard the Pegasus train. No fool our Dave.

Great job, Dave! Nice to see you haven't lost your touch since 470 days, 34 years ago... and you were pretty old then.

Even if 60 is the new 50, it is still VERY IMPRESSIVE. The sport of sailing is forever.

Good on you Dave, although I thought you would be winning events on the senoir tour by now. As for the guy that says "no big deal" winning that regatta is a big deal at any age. It is a really big deal for Dave.

Well done Dad. When I'm 61, I hope to be lying on a tropical beach somewhere! I am glad that you are still able to excel at the thing that you love. You won your last World Championship in 1980 in the 470 and your 3rd son wasn't even born yet and you weren't married to Linda yet. Pretty impressive stuff.

I'm very proud of you,
Jacob

David,

I have enjoyed following your sailing career over the years. Congratulations on your recent Melges 24 world title. Is there really any difference between Lehman 10's and Melges 24's? Only about 40+ years. Well done.

Even before Bob Johnson, Dave came to Quebec to sail the first 470 worlds, where 4 sets of twins from france and Holland took the top spots.
we all learned about teamwork
Congratulations ! Dave!

Re: [Guest] Salute to Dave Ullman [In reply to] Log-In to Post/Reply

Dave, it was great sailing with/against you for the past month. I learned a lot and I wish it did not have to end! For the doubter above, your win had little to do with money and everything to do with the hard month you spent practicing daily before the regatta. I watched you guys from West Cliff Drive in Santa Cruz practicing with two boats and a Protector when it was blowing 30-35 knots. You worked hard and deserved this. You and the entire Team Pegasus deserve hearty congratulations. And Philippe, thanks for a great regatta!

Hi Dave, Congratulations on your big Melges 24 win.
It's been a long time since we last talked to you. I remember those days when you were helping us sell Vanguard 470's with great fondness. It sounds like you play golf regularly now. I believe you were just getting started when I had you as a guest at Riviera many years ago. It would be fun to hear from you again

1971 C-15 Nationals at Huntington Lake and the legend continues. I used Ullman and won in the Jr's. Dave of course was first in the 'Seniors'

Amazing feller that Dave

Re: [The Publisher] Salute to Dave Ullman [In reply to] Log-In to Post/Reply

Maybe I'm just a squid who doesn't know anything about "real" racing. Maybe I race in a class with stupid rules in addition to the ISAF RRS. But in the Sailing World article Ullman states his win is in large part because his crew hikes harder than others. I refer him to rules 49.1 and 49.2, both of which he grossly violates.

With the publishing of the picture: http://www2.worldpub.net/images/sw/124-UllmanDebrief0607St.jpg from the online issue of Sailing World, his boat shows no regard for rule 49.2 The lifelines are not, by any definition, "taut". Further, his crew is hiking out on the top lifeline, not the bottom lifeline, regardless that rule 49.1 prohibits using a lifeline for such purpose at all.

Ullman should be so ashamed in the obvious violation of rule 49.2, in TWO DIFFERENT WAYS, he should withdraw from the regatta.

Will it take a tragedy, such as getting 4 crew run over at a windward mark with some being lost after a lifeline fails to get these rules enforced?

Re: [Taxbuster] Salute to Dave Ullman [In reply to] Log-In to Post/Reply

No offense Buster, but the class rules are amended, specifically, to allow such an action - and they are amended to allow the hiking straps to sag low enough while not allowing them to touch the deck.

The rule modification is referenced in the Melges 24 class rules as follows:

For the purpose of RRS 43.2 the hiking lines shall be regarded as per RRS 49.2, except that the tension may be modified as in class rule C.3.13.

C3.13 is worded like this: When pushing down hard on the hiking lines at the mid point between the two centre stanchions, no part of the hiking line including padding etc shall touch the deck.

So, before you start slinging your mud, understand that class rules may be modified in order to fit the specific type of boat/racing that is done. The Melges 24 class is excellent, competitive, and it's a physical boat to master. Congratulations to Dave and his crew.

It might do you some good to understand the CLASS rules before you make such a broad accusation that Ullman didn't follow the rules.

So, instead of Ullman WITHDRAWING from the regatta... how about you WITHDRAWING your comments... eh?
