Sailagram: A Snapshot of May Sailing

By Nicki Bennett | June 2, 2021 |

If May taught us one thing, it is that sailing is back in a big way. We are beyond thrilled to see so many of you out sailing with smiling faces.

Master Mariners Regatta

The 2021 Master Mariners Regatta on Saturday, May 29, may have been the most-photographed event on San Francisco Bay in the past year and a half. Heck, there were probably more photographers out there than boats racing!

2021 Transpac Preview

It's an odd-numbered year, and that means it's time once again for one of the world's oldest ocean races — the Transpacific Yacht Race.

Solo to Socal and Back Again

I've been thinking of the goal of sailing to and cruising around the Channel Islands for about a year now. I've read books on it, talked to other sailors about it, and done preparatory sails. I looked for the right time and made sure (I thought) I had enough of it.

Max Ebb – A Lot of Bunk

It was a damp and foggy night. We were racing down the coast, and the wind in the thick marine layer was light but reasonably steady. My watch was over and the schedule had me shifting to "standby" mode.

Racing Sheet

We share firsthand reports on California Offshore Race Week, the OYRA Duxship and OYRA (Faux) Farallones. We sail with the Delta Ditch Run and visit PICYA's Lipton Cup. Two reports about ocean races out of L.A. (Cat Harbor & Return and the First One Hundred) follow. We've got Box Scores and Race Notes in here too.

Changes In Latitudes

With reports this month from Selavi on the deal that almost fell through (but didn't!); Thisldu on COVID-rearranged cruising plans; and Little Wing's participation in the Tahiti Pearl Regatta. Also, currently boatless cruisers Greg and Debbie report on renewed cruising in the Med, followed by a locker full of Cruise Notes.
