    Slow Boat Pursuit On Delaware River: Stolen Gun And Stolen Boat = Jail Time



    A man armed with a stolen gun stole a boat on Philadelphia's Delaware River and pretended to be a federal official when confronted by the U.S. Coast Guard on Wednesday, investigators said.

    The ordeal began around 7:10 p.m. when Philadelphia police officers were flagged down by a member of a sail club. The member told police the club was doing training exercises at Pier 5 Marina near Penn's Landing just after 6:30 p.m. when a man, later identified as 31-year-old Roger Pojar,

    The Royal Yacht Squadron, Cowes and the Solent laid on a World Championship worthy of the leading owner-driver one design class, the RC44.

    A marine heat wave that has spiked sea surface temperatures off the Oregon and Washington coast is moving into California waters. If it continues south, there is a chance it could raise temperatures along the chilly Bay Area coast within weeks, according to federal oceanographers.

    The intense heat wave, which had lingered offshore since May, hit the Oregon and Washington

  • 2024 DH Farallones: Taming The Beast!
    by Photoboy



    The Doublehanded Farallones Race was a true test of mettle this year, dishing out 25-35 knots of southerly storm winds, which gradually turned offshore, meaning that it was sort of a reverse Farallones race – off the wind on the way to the island, and upwind on the way back. Boats that were able to reduce sails and remain in control found that they had a record-fast sail out to the island in rough conditions, but had a slower return back against the wind. The winds eventually

    There are times when universes collide, bringing various masses hurtling together in a semi quantum chaotic stew that can only be attributed to timing, weather and the pull from planetary forces... Saturday's racing in the waters off Treasure Island was one of them.

    The St Francis Yacht Club was hosting the Spring Fest, with some of the fleets starting of the western edge of T.I. and simultaneously, the Berkeley Yacht Club was hosting the Annual Rollo Wheeler Regatta off the Berkeley
