Dr. Neil Barth is the last person out of the office. It is 10:30 p.m. on a day that started at dawn. His wife, Kerry, his three sleeping kids, a reheated dinner and another pile of work wait at home. But this work, a clutter of letters and notes, has nothing to do with his oncology practice in Newport Beach. This is about a dream, and by the time he quits the home office around 1 a.m., Barth is one step closer to sailing around the world.

Rich Devos' Reichel/Pugh 74 Windquest and Neil Barth's Whitbread 60 America's Challenge, both tuning up for bigger tests, were expected to finish one-two by early this morning in Newport Harbor Yacht Club's race from Newport Beach to Cabo San Lucas. . . . A Pacific storm that brought high wind and waves forced the abandonment of Tuesday's semifinal races in the America's Cup.

Hal Ward's Andrews 70 Cheval '95 stretched its overall lead in the Transpacific Yacht Race on Friday with the day's best run of 239 miles. D.J. Johnson's 60-foot Final Approach, farther south than any of the other nine Division 3 entries, moved from seventh to first place with 189 miles. The deep southern route well below the direct line to Honolulu paid off big with northerly trade winds of 14 knots, about three times stronger than those on the rhumb line.

Roy Disney's dream of winning the Transpacific Yacht Race faded fast Friday when his boat Pyewacket slipped from second to 11th place among the 12 ULDB 70s in the 37th biennial race to Hawaii. The two-year-old Santa Cruz 70, apparently finding less wind than its rivals in the 24 hours before Friday morning's position reports, logged only 165 miles. A day earlier there was a report that Pyewacket had been dismasted, but that proved unfounded.

Roy Disney's Pyewacket got back into the middle of the 37th biennial Transpacific Yacht Race to Hawaii Saturday by logging the longest run of the fleet--239 nautical miles--but was still 50 miles behind John DeLaura's Silver Bullet, which is in pursuit of Neil Barth's Persuasion. Persuasion and Hasso Plattner's Morning Glory from Germany started a day earlier and were the only two boats left between Silver Bullet and the Diamond Head finish line.

Neil Barth's Persuasion, shadowed closely by Hasso Plattner's Morning Glory from Germany, has taken over the pace halfway into the 37th biennial Transpacific Yacht Race to Hawaii, with a chance to finish first overall. The Excel 53, from Newport Harbor Yacht Club, replaced Jerry Montgomery's 40-foot Patriot, from Alamitos Bay YC, at the front of the 2,225-nautical mile race with 1,154 miles to go.

After sailing nearly 600 miles in less than three days, the first seven of nine boats in the Transpacific Yacht Race were within a two-mile cluster Tuesday. The yachts were led by Jim Ryley's Mirage of Santa Cruz. Mirage passed some of the boats that started for Honolulu from one to three days earlier, but was being steadily overtaken by the more powerful ILC 70 class that started a day behind Ryley's crew Sunday.
