Moving on from a tragedy that claimed the lives of four sailors a year ago, more than 200 boats set sail in the 66th Newport to Ensenada Yacht Race Friday. But when the final starting bell rang, most of the spectators and competitors had their eyes on just three crafts. Event organizers and fellow competitors agree the top contenders of the world's largest international yacht race are the crews aboard Medicine Man, Taxi Dancer and Bad Pak, which finished first in last year's race.

Last year at the Pacific Coast Championships, the Corona del Mar High sailing team missed a trip to the nationals by one point. One point. It was painful. Yet it's also been a source of motivation for this year's team as CdM continues in its quest to reach the Fleet Race Nationals. CdM returns to the Pacific Coast Championships Saturday at Cabrillo Beach Yacht Club in San Pedro, where the squad must finish in the top five to move on to the Super Bowl of high school sailing. "Last year we were fifth at Pacific Coast Championships, but we missed it by one point," CdM sailing coach Nate Dunham said.

There's a young vibe on the Newport Harbor High sailing team. But that doesn't necessarily mean that Newport Harbor is in rebuilding mode. There's a high standard for the program. After all, they are the Sailors. "We have to be good," Newport Harbor Coach Payson Infelise said of having the nickname the Sailors. "Because otherwise, who are we?" These Sailors possess one of the top high school sailing programs in the nation. They have finished within the top six in the nation the past four years, Infelise said.

When Toy Boat Toy Boat Toy Boat owners Lori and Mike Curtin locked up at 5 p.m. Friday, they cried. "We put our life into this business, and we're just tapped out," said Lori, 40. "We can't do any more. " The store's website encourages customers to say its name - a classic childhood tongue twister - three times, fast. There won't be much need for that anymore, however, since the Curtins shuttered the Corona del Mar specialty toy store last week. A note stuck to the door alerted passers-by: "It is with a very heavy heart we have decided to close our beloved iconic toy store in Corona del Mar. "Like so many other small businesses this economy has taken its toll on us. Unfortunately we did not have the necessary capital to stock the store to our satisfaction or our customers.

I have an abundance of what I think is important information to share with you this week. Most of you have read about the tragedy that took place in the Islands Race this last weekend, when one soul was lost while competing in a sailboat race around our local island. I competed in the race, and on my return home, I was greeted with plenty of hugs and attention from both my wife and son. While assuming my king's chair in front of the TV, I reflected on the personal mistakes I had made during the race.
