re: 3 Dead in Sailing Yacht Crash in Race from Newport California to Mexico.

Last I heard

Debri from the boat was washing up on the Coronados, two of the bodies recovered by CG/Vessel Assist had laceration.

Pieces ( most no larger than 6" ) of the boat indicated it had been threw a grinder.

Racer in the area heard communication between boat and ship others heard only the larger ship

Owner was onboard



Let us raise another cup to those we lost and say a prayer for those left behind

1955 Blanchard 51 Custom ( I got a woody )

1974 Ranger 33
