-- Story by Young Chang; photo by Sean Hiller Rich Detwiler likes the underwater world of diving. Ask him what he likes even more, and he'll point out a small distinction: Being on the water. It lets him experience wind, air, sea and, most importantly, turbulence. The ups and downs of sailing are exciting for the Newport Beach resident. As a volunteer at Orange Coast College's School of Sailing and Seamanship, where Detwiler spends most his time on boats, he gets his share of thrills.

Mathis Winkler As an Arizona desert child, sailing was a little out of the ordinary for Catherine Malm. "I did all those sort of traditional mountain desert things," Malm said. But her grandfather sailed and got her hooked early on. She began lake sailing, entered her first race at 13 and began following her passion as a student at Pomona College. After meeting her husband, Jaime, during a regatta in Mission Bay, Malm came to Newport Beach and ran the junior program at Balboa Yacht Club.

Chris Yemma In the competitive sailing world, there's good, and then there's Bill Ficker. A Newport Beach resident since 1953, Ficker, 77, was the first person to win the trifecta of major sailing championships, and, to this day, is one of two people to have accomplished the feat. Jack Nicklaus has won 20 major championships in golf, the New York Yankees have won 26 World Series titles, and Ficker and Dennis Conner, of San Diego, are the only two sailors in the world who have successfully defended the America's Cup, won the Star Class world championship and won the Congressional Cup. Considered the granddaddy of competitions in sailing circles, the America's Cup is the oldest continuous trophy in sports.
