  • The Harbor Report: Thoughts after a sailing tragedy

    I have an abundance of what I think is important information to share with you this week. Most of you have read about the tragedy that took place in the Islands Race this last weekend, when one soul was lost while competing in a sailboat race around our...
  • The Harbor Report: The importance of sailing stories

    This week's column is more for me than for all of you. I am sure you have heard and lived it yourself: Life is too short to go boating without your family and friends. Tuesday I stared at my blank computer monitor for about 20 minutes, thinking of...
  • Harbor Report: A tradition by the water

    Last week, while on the dock at the Balboa Yacht Club, I ran into my good friend Mel Redmond. He was boarding the club's electric boat with four other club members for their weekly pilgrimage to the Newport Harbor Yacht Club's yachtsmen's luncheon. Every...

  • The Harbor Report: Fleets take to the harbor this weekend

  • The Harbor Report: Looking back at the top fleets

    This week I thought it would be interesting to go back some 50 years and recall who brought home the pickle dishes in the 1940-1960s. I called Seymour Beek and Dave Ullman and asked them what were the most active fleets, names to look for and where to...

  • The Harbor Report: Harbor is like a fine wine

    This Labor Day weekend I climbed aboard my 1983 Schwinn Traveler bicycle and set out on a different type of harbor cruise. Words that came to mind on this hot summer day, as I pedaled from Huntington Beach to Newport, were working waterfront facilities,...

    The Harbor Report: It's going to be a great weekend on the water

  • The Harbor Report: Wind blows in some serious racing

    I hope you have had a chance to see if your dog is still chained up in the backyard because it's been windy. Last week's "Around Catalina" race was exciting, and I was glad to see the big breeze not come in until Sunday afternoon after we had finished the...
