Chico 30 is a 30 ′ 6 ″ / 9.3 m monohull sailboat designed by Gary Mull and built by Keith Eade (NZ) starting in 1970.

Rig and Sails

Auxilary power, accomodations, calculations.

The theoretical maximum speed that a displacement hull can move efficiently through the water is determined by it's waterline length and displacement. It may be unable to reach this speed if the boat is underpowered or heavily loaded, though it may exceed this speed given enough power. Read more.

Classic hull speed formula:

Hull Speed = 1.34 x √LWL

Max Speed/Length ratio = 8.26 ÷ Displacement/Length ratio .311 Hull Speed = Max Speed/Length ratio x √LWL

Sail Area / Displacement Ratio

A measure of the power of the sails relative to the weight of the boat. The higher the number, the higher the performance, but the harder the boat will be to handle. This ratio is a "non-dimensional" value that facilitates comparisons between boats of different types and sizes. Read more.

SA/D = SA ÷ (D ÷ 64) 2/3

  • SA : Sail area in square feet, derived by adding the mainsail area to 100% of the foretriangle area (the lateral area above the deck between the mast and the forestay).
  • D : Displacement in pounds.

Ballast / Displacement Ratio

A measure of the stability of a boat's hull that suggests how well a monohull will stand up to its sails. The ballast displacement ratio indicates how much of the weight of a boat is placed for maximum stability against capsizing and is an indicator of stiffness and resistance to capsize.

Ballast / Displacement * 100

Displacement / Length Ratio

A measure of the weight of the boat relative to it's length at the waterline. The higher a boat’s D/L ratio, the more easily it will carry a load and the more comfortable its motion will be. The lower a boat's ratio is, the less power it takes to drive the boat to its nominal hull speed or beyond. Read more.

D/L = (D ÷ 2240) ÷ (0.01 x LWL)³

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds.
  • LWL: Waterline length in feet

Comfort Ratio

This ratio assess how quickly and abruptly a boat’s hull reacts to waves in a significant seaway, these being the elements of a boat’s motion most likely to cause seasickness. Read more.

Comfort ratio = D ÷ (.65 x (.7 LWL + .3 LOA) x Beam 1.33 )

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds
  • LOA: Length overall in feet
  • Beam: Width of boat at the widest point in feet

Capsize Screening Formula

This formula attempts to indicate whether a given boat might be too wide and light to readily right itself after being overturned in extreme conditions. Read more.

CSV = Beam ÷ ³√(D / 64)

CYC is an all volunteer non-profit Yacht Club open to any and all interested in sailing, who seek camaraderie and fellowship without pretense. The city of Chico is located in Butte County within several hours of the Sacramento River Delta and enjoys closer proximity to many sailing lakes. San Francisco Bay is just a bit farther but certainly within reach.

We encourage you to find out more about the CYC by perusing the pages of our site, contacting one of our officers and or attending a meeting. We are always seeking new members and looking to spread the word about the joys of sailing.

Latitude38

“Commodore Sue Griffin and her executive committee prepared an evening of celebration and camaraderie, with many active and former members attending. The MC for the evening program was past Commodore Mary McCluskey, aided by some members of the club performing some newly minted music and words for our enjoyment.”

Chico club member dancing

“The club was started in 1973 as the North American Sailing Association, sponsored by Coastal Recreation, builders of the Aquarius and Balboa sailboats. However, after receiving requests from other sailors to join, in 1983 the name of the club was changed to the Chico Yacht Club . This opened up membership to sailors with other kinds of sailboats.

“Club members have various kinds of sailboats from trailerable to oceangoing vessels. We sail many of the local lakes and coastal areas, as well as [taking] long-distance cruises. Members have cruised to Mexico, Alaska, Hawaii, the Mediterranean, the South Pacific, and many other International destinations. We even have a couple that has sailed around the world and are members of the Seven Seas Society.”

The club welcomes sailors who might be interested in joining the Chico Yacht Club. For more information, contact Commodore Sue Griffin, at (310) 869-7040, or any club member.

“Happy Sailing!”

Motor Yacht Chico

About Chico

Built in 1932 at  Miller’s yard in St Monans , Fife, to a G L Watson design for Frank Robinson Beavan of Newcastle who named her Frebelle III. She was sold in 1933 to land and water speed record holder Sir Malcolm Campbell, the third of four yachts that he was to own, each in turn named Blue Bird. Sold again in 1935 to the Countess of Onslow, she was then requisitioned by the Navy in December 1939. She was fitted out with Lewis guns and echo sounding gear and commissioned as Chico in March 1940, to be based at Dover on minesweeping duty. At the end of May she was ordered to Dunkirk to assist in the evacuation, ferrying troops off the beaches to the ships waiting offshore and then returning twice to bring exhausted men back to Dover. She saw further action with enemy aircraft in the Channel and was finally paid off back into civilian ownership in 1946 after distinguished war service.

Chico Dunkirk's Plaque

More details on Chico’s war years can be found at  The Association of Dunkirk Little Ships .

She was subsequently fitted with a deck saloon to improve the day accommodation and has since been used as a private yacht and a charter yacht. In the 1970s, she sailed to Europe and Russia as a research and demonstration vessel for Marconi. Returning to the South Coast from the Mediterranean in 1990 she was re-engined and refitted to provide comfortable accommodation for ten.
