Fair Weather Boating

For a few weeks it seemed like winter arrived with rain every few days, and the Newport Boat Show was about to start. More often than not, it seems it always rains at least one of the boat show days. As usual, it doesn’t take long for the weather to change, and earlier this week […]

Sunseeker Yacht Argo Featured at Newport Boat Show

Sunseeker Yacht Argo Featured at Newport Boat Show

This weekend is the Newport Boat Show in Lido Village, and in my opinion the “Belle of the Ball” will be the 108-foot Sunseeker Predator, Argo. This $6 million yacht is in a class by itself.

Fishing and Sailing in Newport Harbor

Fishing and Sailing in Newport Harbor

The first fish I caught in Newport Harbor was around 1958 in the family kid’s boat, which was a 10-foot Glaspar with a 5 ½ hp Johnson outboard. This was before Boston Whalers and way, way before hard bottom inflatables, which was the kid boat of choice from the 1960s to the present. I was […]

Off-Season Boating

Off-Season Boating

Most active local boaters love the “off-season.” Fewer boats in the harbor makes it easier to find a guest dock space at the city docks and restaurant docks, such as the Bluewater Grill, Woody’s or the Rusty Pelican. Speaking of the Rusty Pelican, their garlic bread, clam chowder and other hors d’oeuvres are still to die for. […]

We had the winter series and the Mid-Winter, and Balboa Yacht Club had Team Racing in their Alan Andrews designed super-sport sloops usually reserved for the Governor’s Cup. The Team Racing included what I feel was the premier National Yacht […]
