Spring is approaching, and the boats have returned to Newport Harbor. With this year's Islands Race, Cabo and Transpac all on the horizon, a large number of race boats have gathered here in Newport Beach for their annual maintenance.

With its sails unfurled and a few cannon blasts, the tall ship Hawaiian Chieftain docked in Newport Beach on Wednesday after a roughly 300-mile, three-day voyage from Santa Cruz. A few spectators gathered at the Newport Sea Base to watch the 103-foot topsail ketch slowly emerge from the gray drizzle that hung over Newport Harbor, chugging up the bay on motor power before making a U-turn to dock at the Sea Base. A reproduction of a typical European cargo ship of the 19th century, the Hawaiian Chieftain will be in Newport Beach through Jan. 10, offering tours and sailing trips.

Loping through a quarter century as a head coach at UC Irvine, men’s cross country sage Vince O’Boyle has, arguably, more conference coach of the year awards (20) than Hawaiian shirts. And though clearly still vibrant, the ever-present twinkle in the veteran mentor’s eyes these days has a new sparkle, the result of new faces in the program for his 25th season at the helm. The Anteaters, with the help of second-year associate head coach and recruiting coordinator Jeff Perkins, have brought in seven true freshmen, five of whom O’Boyle believes will begin making an impact on the program, in varying degrees, right away.
