It’s a bright, cloudless day in Orange County. At the Balboa Yacht Club in Newport Beach, about half a dozen boats are bobbing in the harbor, their crews leisurely working. Men in shirts, shorts, sunglasses and hats work on rigs, lines and other equipment. One man in an all-black diving wetsuit pokes his head above the water, scrubbing the lower side of Chris Heman’s boat, “Entropy.” “Any growth on the boat will slow it down,” explains Hemans, who speaks of his boat as if it were alive.

Maria Quinones There is an inner beauty to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, that is unseen and unspoken -- the language and culture of the people. The warm sand, calm waters and beautiful rocks of Cabo bring to life a visitor's desire to relax and enjoy these pleasures. The variety of music and food must also be included in this gratification. As an adjunct professor at National University teaching "The Cultural Foundations of Linguistics" courses, traveling to nearby Cabo reinforces how the English language learned in our schools needs to be promoted extensively at an early age throughout the educational system.

Paul Clinton Weary, but wiser, the crew of the Coast Guard cutter Narwhal blew into Corona del Mar on Wednesday after a 41-day jaunt through eight countries. The New Orleans-to-Newport Beach trip, which began July 27, was the maiden voyage for the Narwhal. Along the way, the crew members learned their new ship inside and out. "We know how to handle her," said Lt. John Kidwell, the Narwhal's commander. "But it's a day-to-day learning process. It's like a new car. You hear those squeaks, and you need to find out where they're coming from."

Young Chang A group of retired friends -- who call themselves the Eternity Group because most of them will someday rest together at the Riverside National Cemetery -- vacationed to Mexico in January. Bill and Betty Kagey of Costa Mesa boarded a Carnival Cruise luxury ship with Jim and Phyllis Campbell, their next door neighbors of 35 years. Three other couples joined the Costa Mesa quartet for a party of 10 -- everyone knows each other -- to tour Mazatlan, Puerto Vallarta and Cabo San Lucas.

Spectators on the Balboa Peninsula on Saturday will watch more than 50 yachts sail off into the blue for the Newport Beach Yacht Club's 14th race to Cabo San Lucas. But this year, watching the 800-mile sail won't end as the boats appear to fade into the horizon: New technology will keep track of every contestant throughout the three- to four-day race. The race has been held 13 times since it began as an every-two-years affair in the late '60s, said event chairman Tim Collins.

In early April, I sailed my boat, Windspirit, to Isla Guadalupe, an island 140 miles off the coast of Baja and 200 miles south of the United States-Mexico border. At Guadalupe, I got hit with bigger winds and seas than I could handle and lost my engine due to contaminated fuel. On the fourth day of trying unsuccessfully to work my way back north from the island, I gave up and ran with the wind and the seas. I ended up in Turtle Bay -- Bahia San Bartolome -- 400 miles down the Baja Coast.

A while back my wife and I were returning from a weekend pig-out of lobsters and margaritas in Puerto Nuevo, Mexico. As we approached the border, I was pulled over by a motorcycle cop. He approached our car. I rolled down the window. He looked exactly like Ponch from "CHiPs," except maybe he was better looking and his uniform's creases were sharper. He asked in Spanish if I spoke Spanish. I told him no. He then proceeded to explain to me in flawless English that I had violated a Mexican law by driving 36 mph in a 35 mph zone.

Sitting against a sprawling mural of El Arco of Cabo San Lucas with the smell of fresh Mexican food wafting from the kitchen, resident Nathan Cramer tells his buddy Zach Wayne that he plans on visiting the newly opened Cabo Grill every day. As the two Orange Coast College students wait for their takeout from the Mexican restaurant, general manager and co-founder Al Talebi works with the cooks, including head chef Braulio Nuñez. No doubt the compliments from their customers would please them because they've worked hard to get the point where they have satisfied customers, but it's interesting to note the bond between Talebi and Nuñez wasn't originally formed in a kitchen.

Chris Yemma Chuck Brewer was fairly new to the sailing scene when he set out on the Newport Beach to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, race in 1986. Just a couple of years into a sport he picked up in his late 40s, Brewer was in for a surprise he hadn't yet had experience with. About halfway down off the coast of Baja California, Brewer, guiding his Tartan 40 named Amerigo, a 40-foot sailboat, and other competing boats, encountered wind speeds of up to 35-40 knots, or 45-50 mph. Brewer's boat was blown over 13 times, he said, with the top of the mast touching the water each time.

Kajimura arrived in Newport Beach on Sunday with a delegation from Newport Beach's sister city, Okazaki, Japan. Kajimura joined the delegation after winning an essay contest in her hometown.
