Outrigger clubs from Santa Barbara to San Diego are expected to compete in a rigorous, open water race from Dana Point to Laguna Beach and back. The 20-mile, outrigger canoe race marks the 30th annual competition sponsored by the Dana Outrigger Club. About 600 competitors are expected. Coordination is crucial in such a strenuous race. Teams are made up of nine paddlers: Six crew members paddle while three rest, then rotate every 20 to 25 minutes.

Baseball has been called America's pastime, been used as a description of Americana along with hot dogs and apple pie, and, even in these days of high prices, remains a sport that is still affordable for most families. Baseball is loading the kids into the station wagon and heading for the ballpark. It's going to the game with your father and hearing him tell how Stan Musial used to hit, or how Bobby Thomson hit that home run to win the 1951 pennant for the Giants.

Racing's first three-time winner of the Indianapolis 500 lives here, just to the side of a county road winding toward Cottonwood Cove, down past the town cemetery to the softball field, where the sign reads: "Cross at your own risk." Cross the sandy wash, and more than likely you will find Louie Meyer--winner of the 1928, 1933 and 1936 Indy 500s--sitting on his porch, soaking up the dry warmth of a 100-plus-degree desert day.

To the average sports fan, it's not exactly Koufax and Drysdale returning to Chavez Ravine. But on the beach, the names Selznick and Vogelsang and Von Hagen and Menges also conjure visions of heroic summers long ago. They played volleyball. They were kings of the beach before the tour went pro and the "beach" was extended to Phoenix and Milwaukee and Boulder, Colo. Before light beer and cable television.

Larry Bird had 30 points, 12 rebounds, 10 assists and 9 steals for the Celtics to come within one steal of recording a quadruple-double as Boston beat the Utah Jazz, 110-94, at Salt Lake City. But, when informed of his opportunity, Bird chose not to go back into the game after being taken out in the third quarter. He totaled 33 minutes.

"The Jewish Heritage in American Folk Art," an exploration of a facet of folk creativity organized by the Museum of Folk Art and the Jewish Museum in New York, is on view at the Hebrew Union College's Skirball Museum through April 27. The exhibition consists of about ceremonial and secular objects from 1720 to the present. The earliest generations of Sephardic and Ashkenazic Jewish settlers, few in numbers, tended to assimilate their cultural patterns with those of the local population.

Robyn Smith Astaire was always a woman without a past, so for years she invented one, she says. There was something about mounting her first horse at 2 on the family ranch. Majoring in English at Stanford. A starlet's contract with MGM. "I dissemble a little bit, I like to say," she says. She was enrolled at Columbia Pictures' acting workshop 30 years ago, and even then there were people who were optimistic about her future.

Fred Segal Essentials in Santa Monica stocks 75 brands of luxury soap from around the world, including Annick Goutal of Paris and Italy's Midani Erbe. But it's a funky, fragrant soap made by tiny Primal Elements Inc. in Garden Grove that leaves much of the competition in suds.

When art librarian Annette Masling was in Southern California recently, her must-see list included a light-industrial mall in the 900 block of Colorado Avenue in Santa Monica. She didn't go there to have her car repaired, despite the plethora of body shops in the area. Masling, who directs the library at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery in Buffalo, N.Y.
