Sometime today, Jack Baillie expects to sail his 65-foot yacht, Newsboy, into Ensenada Harbor with a familiar thought on his mind. Never again. When it comes to the annual Newport-to-Ensenada boat race, which began Friday, Baillie, 81, has reason to feel a bit burned out. This is the 43rd time he has sailed in the event, which is in its 45th year. "I have decided I'd never do it again for the last five years," Baillie, a Corona del Mar resident, says. "I guess I'll keep going."

Your coverage of the 12-meter racing in Australia has been terrific and I look forward to more of the same as the America's Cup finals unfold. The 12s that have been racing there are the world's finest, and it should be noted that in a 3 1/2-hour race, a loss of two minutes, for example, is less than 1% and comparable to a 100-99 basketball score, or 50-49 1/2 in football, which might really wake up a stadium full of fans.

Three defending class champions, but not Newsboy, are among 410 entries scheduled to start the 47th Newport-Ensenada International Yacht Race off Newport Beach at noon today. Newsboy, Jack Baillie's wooden 12-meter built for the America's Cup in the '50s, has competed in 37 Ensenada races and won more trophies than any other boat. This year, however, Baillie did not enter. Class corrected-time winners from last year returning include Carl Eichenlaub's Cadenza in PHRF, John R.

Larry Lewis' contingency plans for the giant Midwinter sailing regatta this weekend off the Orange County coast included everything--except an oil spill. As chairman of the largest sailing regatta in the country, Lewis thought he had developed a strategy to deal with every foreseeable problem--from gale-force winds to pea soup fog. "I just did not think of an oil spill," says Lewis.

You may have seen the varnished, wooden-hulled yacht near the entrance to Newport Harbor, tugging at its lines as if trying to break free and sail with the wind. The yacht is Newsboy. Its sleek, elegant hull and towering spar are living symbols of Orange County yachting. Riding gracefully on a mooring in front of Balboa Yacht Club, the 65-foot, 30-ton yacht is a familiar sight to anyone regularly entering or leaving the harbor.
