    Sailing Tragety In Southern California

    Tragically it looks like four sailboat racers have been killed after running there sailboat onto the rocks in perfect weather conditions during the Newport Beach to Ensenada race. Harry Crumb my dock neighbor was competing in this race and said he had talked to the crew of the ill fated sailboat before the race and that they were a good bunch of guys. Harry and I discussed some of the possibilities and it does look like technology over reliance may have contributed to the accident. It is quite possible that Coronado Island, where the accident took place, was used as a GPS waypoint. The helmsman might have gone below for a bit at the wrong time or I hate to say it fallen asleep at the wheel. No one was wearing their PFDs either.
