Magazine Features: May 2024

Norcal High School Championship

Eighteen schools were represented at the NorCals, whether they knew it or not. A historic trophy, repurposed, was on the line for the first time, with the sweetener for the winners of a foundation-sponsored trip to a regatta in Annapolis.

Harrowing Panama Canal Transit

We had seen many cool places, but everything in the Caribbean felt fairly approachable from an American perspective. We expected the next stage of the journey through the South Pacific to feel very exotic. Little did we know the adventure was about to begin a little earlier than expected.

Team Racing Battle on the Estuary

It was Saturday, April 13 — an overcast but otherwise ideal day for racing at Encinal Yacht Club. Given the solid breeze and the preference for more tactical sailing, the Race Committee had declared that no spinnakers would be flown — and so my foredeck role was converted to jib trim.

Max Ebb: Race Crew Care

It was during post-race cocktails with my crew, at the corner table in the yacht club bar, the table with the best view. Lee Helm's phone made a sound like an old Telex teletype machine from the '80s.

America’s Schooner Cup

Silver Gate Yacht Club continued its tradition and hosted another grand event on San Diego Bay featuring some of the most traditional boats to be found sailing today on the US West Coast.
