Twilight Zone is my Merit 25, Berthed in the Berkeley Marina on O-dock near the Berkeley Yacht Club. Twilight Zone is 6-time champion of the local one-design Merit 25 fleet, and has raced to San Diego (MORA Long Distance race, 1983) and to Hawaii (Singlehanded Transpac, 1986). In 1986 I also sailed the boat back from Hawaii. Time for the race over was 18 days (best day's run 208 miles) and time for the return leg was 26 days.

More recently, Twilight Zone won division L of the YRA Handicap Division championship series for the 1996, and was first in class and second ovrall in the 1997 Berkeley YC Wheeler Regatta.

Twilight Zone races almost every Friday night from April through September in the BYC Friday Night Races, and crew spots are often available. In fact, no-one who arrives with a tray of sushi to share has ever been turned away.
