Another slow Newport-to-Ensenada yacht race loomed Friday as 507 yachts set sail in light wind and an overcast sky. A breeze from the south-southeast at six-eight knots sent most of the fleet on a close-hauled starboard tack toward the beach near Laguna.

Moderate southwest breezes sent the 561 boats in the Newport-to-Ensenada yacht race reaching down the coast Saturday in the 38th edition of the international yacht race. The catamarans and trimarans sailing under the Ocean Racing Catamaran Assn. handicap rule were the first boats off the starting line at noon, and one or more of them should be first to cross the finish line this morning.

The 42nd Newport-to-Ensenada yacht race dragged to a close Sunday when the last of the 406 boats remaining in the race eased across the finish line shortly before the finish deadline at 11 a.m. How slow was the race? The official report from the sponsoring Newport Ocean Sailing Assn. said that 406 of the 520 starters crossed the line under sail, making it one of the slowest on record. The slowness of the race didn't dampen the spirits of the hundreds who crowded the patio of the Bahia Hotel to witness the trophy presentation that officially ended the race.

Erratic winds with occasional rain squalls Saturday made it a relative slow passage for the 500 boats in the Newport-to-Ensenada yacht race. By 5 p.m., about 250 boats had finished, but freshening breezes in Todos Santos Bay were bringing the rest of the boats to the finish line in droves. Slightly before 5 p.m., the race committee reported 36 boats finished in 24 seconds, with many more on the horizon.

Bill Gibbs appears to have the fastest boat in the Tommy Bahama Newport to Ensenada Yacht Race, but he doesn't think he can beat the record. He just hopes he can beat the curse. "If we finish I'll be happy," the Ventura sailor said. "If we do better than finish, I'll be ecstatic."

Fred Preiss' 84-foot custom-sloop Christine out of Pacific Mariners Yacht Club finished at 8:26:47 a.m. Sunday to claim elapsed-time honors in the 38th Newport-to-Ensenada yacht race. Christine finished five seconds behind the 62-foot sloop Ragtime but was awarded first to finish honors because she started in another class 10 minutes behind Ragtime, skippered by Dick Deaver of Los Angeles Yacht Club. The finish between the two yachts was one of the closest in the history of the race.
