    Kurt Hoehne Reports

    Last weekend's Southern Straits Race put on by the West Vancouver YC was neither a gear-buster nor a maddening drifter.
    It was just a good old fashioned fast race. Sailish's Bruce Hedrick supplied a pre-race weather briefing that was delivered
    the night before to racers in attendance.

    There were three courses, a 133-mile long course allowing the faster boats to stretch their legs, a 98-mile medium course
    that seems to ...

    Genoa, Italy (April 18, 2019) – After fleeting winds the days prior dented progress in the racing schedule, Genoa was alive and kicking for the fourth day at the Hempel World Cup Series as a 5-7 knot western breeze ensured that each of the eight Olympic fleets, minus the Laser Radial, managed to complete at least one race.

    Among the stars were Odile van Aanholt and Marieke Jongens (NED) as they snapped up a hat trick of race wins in the 49erFX to propel themselves into pole position.

    Hitting the top of the 49-boat 49erFX fleet holds special relevance for van Aanholt and Jongens as the event is the first of two qualification events for Dutch qualification to Tokyo 2020 in the 49erFX, so the stakes are high. Four other Dutch teams are currently competing and sit in ninth, 18th, and 36th. ...

    Day Two delivered a Caribbean-perfect easterly 15-17 knots for the 10th edition of Les Voiles de St. Barth Richard Mille for the 1,000+ sailors to complete one distance race between 21 – 34 miles dependent upon their class. While too early to place any bets, patterns are forming across seven of the nine classes with consistent 1st, 2nd and 3rd place. But as a Maxi collision and a Multi pre-start protest today demonstrate, no lead is safe. Here is today’s recap ...

    The SF Chronicle Phil Matier Reports






    The Port of Oakland’s maritime industry is raising red flags over the Oakland A’s new waterfront ballpark plan, saying the 34,000-seat stadium and housing project would pose both a safety risk to ships and a threat to the port’s future as a major, regional economic engine.

    “Between the traffic congestion it will bring, the navigational risks it will pose to shipping vessels and the land-use conflicts it will create, there’s no way for this project to proceed without doing irreparable harm to Oakland’s working waterfront,” said Mike Jacob, vice president at the Pacific Merchant Shipping Association and a leader in the coalition of port workers, bar pilots, ...

    "Our first day was perfect…a bluebird sky and gentle breezes. Eight hours of spectacular sailing.

    Day two we awoke to another day in paradise – it was so beautiful as we left Guanaja. We cruised without a care. Then, in the distance, we saw them. At first there was one panga (a native fishing boat) – we gave them a 6 pack and they left.
