  • A New Permanent Mark For Yellow Bluff Honoring Sailing Legend Hank Easom




    A surprise for local sailing legend, Hank Easom was unveiled recently at Brickyard Cove in Point Richmond a short time ago!








    A little piece of Bay sailing history was made with the unveiling of the new Hank Easom Yellow Bluff permanent buoy.




    1,000 lb bottom tackle will hold the buoy in position, combating the extremely strong currents along the Yellow Bluff shoreline.







    The creation of this buoy is the result of a collaboration between the Yacht Racing Association, the Coast Guard, and our members S/C Carl Lewis, Ron Young and Scott Easom.

    Funds were raised from individuals and participating yacht clubs (the San Francisco Yacht Club, the Corinthian Yacht Club, and the Sausalito Yacht Club) with assistance from the Belvedere Cove Foundation.

    Hank’s friends and crew surprised him with the event on Saturday morning. This meaningful gift in Hank’s honor will benefit all Bay Area sailors for many years.

      With more than 2200 nautical miles still to sail, at least two more low pressure systems before a timely finish into Lorient expected Saturday, there is still a long, long way to go on the Retour a La Base solo Transatlantic from Martinique to France.



      But as Thomas ‘The Rocket’ Ruyant (For People) scythed his way into third place today - setting a new solo 24 hour distance record - the podium positions are now held by the top three finishers on the

      Until tomorrow evening, the head of the fleet will continue its progress to the North. It is only after the anticyclone has bypassed that they will begin to move towards the East and have to deal with depressions. In the meantime, everyone is increasing their intensity and resisting conditions that are not always pleasant. State of play as Jean Le Cam arrived in Martinique this afternoon.

    • Keeping It Clean In The Southern Ocean
      by Photoboy


      After about 10 days in the Southern Ocean, I wake up this morning to the boat broaching. I stop her from broaching only to realize it is freezing outside! The sun is up, it comes up around 4am UTC, there are some cumulus clouds floating about but what broached the boat was a little squall bringing 26 knots after a night of 18-20knots. The boat doesn’t like the sudden change in breeze strength and direction making her wipe out slightly. It’s a gentle broach and easily fixed...
