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.

A day on the job for Richard and Sheri Crowe might include climbing a smoke-spewing volcano, watching Antarctic icebergs cave in, or guiding student sailors through rough seas to remote destinations. But now, after 30 years as captains of the Alaska Eagle, the Orange Coast College School of Sailing and Seamanship's 65-foot training vessel, the Crowes have retired. "It was way easier to say, 'Hey, I'm ready to retire,' than to say, 'I'm ready to stop running this boat,'" Sheri, 52, said while onboard the school's flagship sailboat in Newport Harbor on Monday morning.

Picture some of the most thrilling moments in sports. The buzzer-beating jump shot in basketball, the game-winning touchdown in football, the walk-off home run in baseball. Now imagine a two-person sailing team taking on grueling 20-knot winds and choppy ocean waves, along with competing against 20 teams from eight different countries over a seven-day, 21-race period. And picture that gauntlet of a week coming down to the last race, and that team winning it by the slightest of margins.

I trust that all my readers are having a good Fourth of July week? On June 26, the City Council selected Paul Blank as the new harbor commissioner who will be filling "Duffy" Duffield's Topsiders. I first noticed Paul back in 1985, when he was sailing for UCLA and I was coaching the Orange Coast College sailing team. It was the last event of the season, and we were trying to qualify for the Pacific Coast Championships when Nick Scandone (sailing for OCC) told me he could he could win this event if he could stay in front of Paul.
