|Memorial Service Set For Lorin Weiss
Wednesday, December 24, 2003
Many sailors who didn’t actually know Mr. Weiss knew his voice as a driving force in the Newport Ocean Sailing Association - his strong, calm baritone methodically counting down the start of the Newport to Ensenada race that usually had 500-plus boats starting on two separate lines.
He also was an innovator in the sport. In recent years he made searching for the finish line through the glare of Ensenada's lights at night a simpler task for racers by setting up a magenta strobe. He also was involved in handicapping the cruising classes to encourage participation by sailors who were not regular racers.
Born in Colorado, Mr. Weiss served with the U.S. Army infantry in the Pacific during World War II before settling in Newport Beach. He met Charlene, his wife of 48 years, when both worked at Lockheed, where he was introduced to sailing by a co-worker.
He raced extensively for many years both on a succession of Cal boats they owned and also crewed for others.
As he gained so much from the sport, Mr. Weiss repaid in service to it. He was instrumental in the founding of the Bahia Corinthian Yacht Club and became the club’s commodore in 1987.
In 1990, he served as NOSA's commodore and was then asked to go through the chairs at the Southern California Yachting Association, becoming commodore in 1994.
Although officially retired, Mr. Weiss worked with Santana magazine, helping to guide it through the 1990s. In 1998, he fully retired when he and Charlene switched from sailboats to RV rigs to tour the United States and Canada.
In addition to Charlene, he is survived by his daughter Christy, sons Jeff and Linton, and five grandchildren.
In memory of Mr. Weiss, donations may be made to the Newport Harbor Nautical Museum.
