Norcal High School Championship

54
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.

68
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

72
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.
