Kiwis 'stunned' by America's Cup decision - Sailing - More Sports - The Independent: "“Today the event organisers dropped a bombshell on the America’s Cup competitors when they announced they will no longer be requiring the teams to be based on Piers 30 and 32,” he wrote. “More importantly, they will not be paying for any redevelopment of the piers as has been promised for the last 18 months. “I am sitting here completely stunned,” he said. “We are a little over six months from relocating our base to San Fran to what we have been told would be a fully functioning base area complete with team hospitality spaces and full access for the public to watch the teams preparing and launching their boats."

A 38-foot sailboat with no engine almost runs aground » Ventura County Star: "A 38-foot sailboat with no engine barely missed running aground while trying to make its way into Channel Islands Harbor in Oxnard early Tuesday. The boat "was about 50 feet away from running aground when we found it," said Lt. Chris Miller, the U.S. Coast Guard's commanding officer at Channel Islands Harbor. The boat was disabled at the time and not equipped with visual distress signals as it drifted toward the harbor jetties about 5:30 a.m., the Coast Guard said. It had no lights, flares or charts on board, Miller said. At first, the Coast Guard was going to tell the boat's master that the vessel was in violation of safety regulations, Miller said. But the Coast Guard decided to tow the boat back to the harbor after learning it was disabled. Once there, Coast Guard officials told the boater that the vessel could not be sailed to open sea again until lights and other basic safety equipment had been installed, Miller said. The boat must be inspected by the Coast Guard before it is taken out of the harbor, Miller said."
