Rick Devereux Upon further review, the conditions Friday for the First Team Real Estate invitational regatta were not that bad. Friday, which saw winds between 6 to 8 knots, was downright blustery compared to Saturday's competition. The winds were around 5 or 6 knots at the start of the race at 1 p.m., but died down considerably to around 2 or 3 knots toward the end. The conditions were so light, race officials shortened the course. Instead of two races, there was one, and instead of two laps around the buoys, there was one. "Yesterday it was slow at the start and started to pick up," said Nathan Prather, a crew member on the 55-foot boat Bolt.

Although Roy Disney's Pyewacket finished first, there were surely no losers in the First Team Real Estate Invitational Regatta, held last weekend in Newport Beach. The three-day race just off shore drew some of the biggest, fastest sailboats in the world to Newport's waters -- a perfect setting for a perfect yacht race. Unlike other regattas, in which boats start from here and sail off to a distant finish line, much of this race was visible from land.
