Size Matters . . .

Variety is the name of the game at the Richmond YC’s Sail a Small Boat Day.

If you’ve learned to sail on a keelboat, or haven’t sailed a dinghy since you were in elementary school, don’t miss the Richmond YC’s Sail a Small Boat Day tomorrow. From 10:30 a.m to 3:30 p.m. at the club, you’ll have the opportunity to get out on a wide variety of small boats and "try before you buy" at no cost to you. There will be everything from high-performance skiffs like 49ers and International 14s, to family boats like Lightnings and Thistles. They’ll range in age from boats like the venerable El Toro to the brand new Weta trimaran, and we guarantee you that you’ll never find all these boats available to you all at one time, so take advantage!

As seven Danish sailors — Jan and Birgit Marie Johansen and their three teenage children Naja, Hjalte, and Rune, along with two unnamed crewmembers — were being transferred yesterday from their Dynamic 43 Ing to a larger ship loaded with others kidnapped by Somali pirates, a couple on the Dutch-flagged yacht Capricorn were saved from a similar fate by a private Dutch security firm.
