The Newport-to-Ensenada International Yacht Race has a well-deserved reputation for excess during its 53-year history. Sometimes the focus appears less on competition and more on eating, drinking and revelry. The post-race fiestas on the streets and in the bars of Ensenada are legendary, and for many the party begins on this side of the border. "A lot of people think of it as a party race," said Victor Stern, a veteran sailor. "But there are those of us who take it seriously."

A Chicago investment group has increased its stake in Readicare Inc. to 10.3% but says it has no plans to seek control of the operator of outpatient medical centers specializing in workers' compensation claims. Harris Associates L.P., an investment advisory firm and mutual funds manager, has nearly doubled its stake in Irvine-based Readicare by acquiring 417,800 shares of the company's stock, boosting its total holdings to 852,000 shares. The company previously owned 5.3% of Readicare.

Hundreds will be watching Friday as the boats depart for the start of the Ensenada Yacht Race, but few will probably see the departure of another Ensenada-bound contingent: the two tractor trailers loaded with donated supplies for the area's poor. Race sponsors point to the "Hands Across the Border" donation drive as proof that the 42-year-old race has become something more than a "bunch of sailors going to Mexico to raise hell." More than a "tequila derby"--or even just the largest international yacht race in the world--the Ensenada Yacht Race today means a week's worth of events that range from posh receptions on either side of the border to a visible anti-drug campaign.

On the stern was where A. Victor Stern stood, although 23 years ago he didn't know it from the bow. With an ear to the wind and an eye on the compass, this short, slightly bent-over man of the sea directed the boat he loved as if it were a symphony. Stern was the picture of a yachtsman--the real role he jokingly said he was destined for--as he raced his old white and beige catamaran, the Imi Loa, in the Speedsailing Grand Prix from Long Beach to Santa Catalina Island and back last Saturday.

Fighting hate Re "White supremacist rally draws violent protesters," April 18 It's hard to buy that a display of pure ignorant hatred like Saturday's neo-Nazi rally is preserving our freedom. It's one thing to express views about an actual right, issue or law; it's another to march in honor of wiping other races and religions off the planet. If marching in anger to no end but violence is considered free speech, perhaps we should rally in support of throwing these neo-Nazis into the Icelandic volcano?

OPINION
April 22, 2010
As one of the organizers of the anti-Nazi protest, I was appalled by The Times' report. We believe that at least 2,000 anti-Nazi protesters showed up on the sidewalk and lawn of City Hall to denounce the Nazis and their hateful message. Were the anti-Nazi protesters angry? Of course. Were they militant in expressing their anger? You bet. But were they "violent" and were they a "mob"? Absolutely not! That a tiny fraction of protesters, contrary to what organizers had urged, beat up two men in no way turned the counter-protest into a "violent counter-protest," nor did it turn 2,000 peaceful counter-protesters into a "mob."
