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

The comment on whether the Coast Guard might consider banning sailboat racing off southern CA was based on the fact that the Coast Guard HAS suspended permission for races outside of San Francisco Bay for now, in the wake of the Low Speed Chase tragedy.

Of course, the USCG never seems to have considered suspending commercial ship operations in San Francisco Bay after the Cosco Busan ran into the Oakland Bay Bridge in 2007 and spilled fuel.
