I read Harry Basch's review of the Regatta ["New Oceania Line Takes to the Seas," Cruise Views, Sept. 7] with great interest because my husband and I had just returned from a cruise with Oceania Cruises. After reading the review, I wondered if Basch had actually sailed on the Regatta or even been aboard. Because I have [traveled] with Renaissance Cruises, I was familiar with the ship and noticed that a lot of the carpeting and upholstery had been retained from the ship's former life and shows a little wear.

SAN FRANCISCO -- America's Cup officials are watching the weather, hoping that winds don't grow too strong for Wednesday's much-anticipated winner-take-all finale. Conditions did not look promising in the morning, but the breeze had quieted by 10:30 a.m. PDT, boosting hopes that Oracle Team USA and Emirates Team New Zealand can face off at 1:15 p.m. on San Francisco Bay. "There's some confidence in the air," regatta director Iain Murray said. Oracle has stormed back to tie the best-of-17 series at 8-8. Wednesday marks only the third time in 162 years that the Cup has come down to a final race.

Stop me if you've heard this one: Billionaire comes to City Hall. Says that if the city will get behind him, he'll bring a major sports enterprise to town and might even renovate some decrepit municipal infrastructure as part of the bargain. Huge economic boost foreseen. Won't cost taxpayers a dime. Sounds like Phil Anschutz, the NFL and the Los Angeles Convention Center, doesn't it? But it's not: We're talking about software billionaire Larry Ellison, the America's Cup sailing race and a few rotting bayside piers in San Francisco.

The British National Rowing Team filed into Friday's press gathering for the San Diego Lowenbrau Crew regatta today on Mission Bay. Adorned in dark blue blazers and light blue ties, everyone's hair was cropped short and everyone's clothes were cropped tight. On the lapel of their jackets was a patch depicting the Union Jack. They moved about in unison with two notable exceptions. Two of Britain's best did not wear the dark blue blazer of the British Nationals.

Harvard's rowers beat the elements and the opposition with four impressive victories on the second day of the 150th Henley Royal Regatta Thursday. Most outstanding was the Crimson lightweight crew, which broke the Thames Cup course record in unseasonally cold and wet conditions in the morning, holding off the Irish crew from University College of Galway. The Americans finished in 6 minutes 26 seconds, five seconds faster than the previous set by Imperial College of Dublin.

American skipper Paul Cayard today won Yugoslavia's most prestigious sailing competition, defeating defending world champion Chris Dickson of New Zealand. The Tanjug news agency said Cayard's Bianca 107 boat won the eighth and decisive race of the ACY Cup, counting for the World Sailing Championships, defeating Dickson at the regatta in Rovinj, on Yugoslavia's northern Adriatic coast. Although another regatta is to be held on Saturday, Cayard, of San Francisco, has already built up an unstoppable lead over Dickson, his closest competitor.

Lee Miller, UCLA's assistant crew coach, spends his days bellowing instructions to rowers at the team's boat house in Marina del Rey. But when Miller ordered 19 freshmen to voluntarily relinquish their seats on a flight home from a regatta in Redwood City, Calif., last April, many wondered about their coach's motives. Miller's resourcefulness, however, assured the financially strapped crew of 19 ticket vouchers worth $200 each, compensation for giving up the seats on an overbooked flight from San Francisco.

SEATTLE - Pike Place Market. The Space Needle. Pioneer Square. Check, check and check. If you've hit these obvious Seattle destinations, you're not a newbie. But maybe you're not an insider either. So, this 21-stop Seattle checklist is for you. It skirts those three attractions and several other popular stops to make more room for Ballard, Capitol Hill, Fremont and the University District - four asset-rich Seattle neighborhoods my family and I explored on a visit last summer.

Organizers of the famed Newport Beach-to-Ensenada sailing regatta were stunned by the mysterious loss of four crew members aboard a 37-foot boat that disappeared in mid-race, marking the first fatalities in the event's 65-year history. While the U.S. Coast Guard was still investigating the accident, regatta organizers said they believed the boat was hit and demolished by a much larger ship - perhaps a freighter or tanker - passing in the dark early Saturday. The boat disappeared from the online tracking system around 1:30 a.m. Saturday.

Newport Beach is creating a special permitting process to allow sail and crew racers to exceed the harbor's 5-knot speed limit — a move that is likely to please participants in such local races as the Thursday night Beer Cans. After years of discussion, the Harbor Commission, Orange County Sheriff's Department Harbor Patrol, boating groups and city officials are nearing agreement on a plan that would allow yacht clubs and collegiate associations to apply for a permit before a given regatta and legally exceed the speed limit during races and practice sessions.

Nick Scandone, an Orange County sailor who won a gold medal at the 2008 Paralympic Games in China six years after having been stricken with Lou Gehrig's disease, died Friday at his Fountain Valley home. He was 42. Sailing since he was 8, Scandone was an All-American yachtsman at UC Irvine who fell just short of qualifying for the 1992 Barcelona Olympics. He left competitive sailing behind until being diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, commonly known as Lou Gehrig's disease, in 2002.

When hundreds of yachts set sail for Baja California today in the lively Newport to Ensenada race, the water will be churning with sleek, multimillion-dollar vessels outfitted with great gizmos and built for speed. And then there's John Haupt's boat. He will be cruising in a 36-foot schooner he stumbled across on EBay. For $780. Newly painted red and green, the aging metal-and-cement boat, he said, needed some work -- to put it mildly.

In the sun-kissed world of wealthy Newport Beach, forget about eyeing your neighbor's new Jag. Check out the multimillion-dollar sailboats they'll be racing today through the weekend. These are people who take yachting to the extreme -- hiring professional crews, spending $1 million a year to race, competing in the Caribbean one month, the Pacific the next. Proceeds benefit the Hoag Heart and Vascular Institute of Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian in Newport Beach.
