Competitive racing in Newport Beach will welcome its latest addition Friday when the Bahia Corinthian Yacht Club launches its Around the Islands race, a competition that begins and ends in Newport Harbor. Organizers hope the race, a 125-mile clockwise circuit around Catalina, Sutil and Santa Barbara islands, will become synonymous with the yacht club. In the competitive world of Newport Harbor races, where sailors can set sail for far-off destinations like Ensenada and Cabo San Lucas in Mexico, or Hawaii in the Transpac race, the Around the Islands offers something different, officials said.

The first time Derek Pickell sailed on his own, he said he felt scared. He doesn't remember if he was 5 or 6 at the time, but he will never forget that first day in an eight-foot sailboat in Newport Harbor. "I had to make decisions and steer around other boats," Pickell said. "I was all alone. " Ten years later, Pickell found himself by himself, in a same sized boat, just in another location. This time, he felt much better after his ride ended. Pickell sailed to victory at the Junior Sabot National Championship gold fleet event in San Diego on Wednesday.

When Jean Watt walked into the Bahia Corinthian Yacht Club around noon Friday, she thought she had simply been invited to lunch with two friends. Instead, when Watt reached the bottom of the stairs leading toward the club's outdoor patio, about 20 people greeted her with applause. The longtime Newport beach environmentalist had been named, much to her surprise, the Newport Beach Citizen of the Year. Watt, known for environmental stewardship, placed her hand over her chest and looked confusedly across the smiling faces of those gathered, including past award recipients.
