Racing for a Cause

Due to all this Baja Ha-Ha hoopla, we’re going to have save the weekend Racing Wrap-up for Wednesday. In the meantime, we wanted to give you a heads up on a couple worthy items. First off, the Leukemia Cup’s post-regatta online auction ends Wednesday at 9 p.m. On the block are several items, most notably a ride aboard Peter Stoneberg’s Formula 40 catamaran Shadow. Less than $11,000 needs to be raised for the event to break the $700,000 mark, so get online and get bidding! Second, the Cal Maritime Sailing Team is sitting in fourth out of 14 overall after two races at the Student Yachting World Cup in La Rochelle, France. The young sailors are vying to be the first West Coast team to win the event, and you can follow them — as well as make a tax-deductible donation to their effort — at their event blog.
