Re: Bryan Chong's first hand recount of the Low Speed Chase tragedy

I was thinking the same thing. I doubt very much if the helmsman was attempting to steer the boat at this point. If he didn't get violently spun off and he was still at the wheel, he had to just be...

Re: Bryan Chong's first hand recount of the Low Speed Chase tragedy

Re: One dead, four missing in Farallones sailboat race

My thoughts are with the crew of Low Speed chase, both lost and living, and their families and friends. It is a sad loss which will stay with the living the rest of their days. There will be plenty...
