    USS Iowa to depart to Southern California on Saturday - Des Moines Register

    RICHMOND, Calif. With sea conditions improving along the California coast, the USS Iowa is now scheduled to begin its final voyage on Saturday.

    The historic battleship was due to be towed out of Richmond on its way to what will be its new home in Southern California last Sunday, but forecasts of high seas and strong winds held up its departure.

    Now with better weather predicted, officials with Pacific Battleship Center, the nonprofit organization group that has been restoring the ship, say the Iowas departure is now set for Saturday morning.

    The group says the 887-foot long, 58,000-ton battlewagon is scheduled to leave the Port of Richmond at 11 a.m., with it expected to pass under the Golden Gate Bridge by 3 p.m.

    After the Iowa arrives at its final destination at the Port of Los Angeles in San Pedro it will be transformed into an interactive naval museum.


    California Beach Named Best In U.S. - KAKE TV

    May 25, 2012

    What's the best beach in the U.S.?

    The Florida professor known as Dr. Beach has come out with his
    2012 survey, and he says it's Coronado Beach in California, across
    the bay from San Diego.

    Prof. Stephen Leatherman of Florida International University
    bases the ranking on environmental quality and safety for swimmers.

    And Leatherman says Coronado's near-perfect Mediterranean
    weather and a postcard backdrop makes it "one of the most super
    beaches around."

    The next top two beaches are Kahanamoku Beach in Waikiki,
    Honolulu, Hawaii and Main Beach in East Hampton, N.Y.


    Northern California yacht racing to resume after wreck -

    By Ronnie Cohen

    FAIRFAX, California (Reuters) - The Coast Guard is set to allow sailboat racing in the Pacific off northern California for the first time since five sailors died in a yacht wreck last month, but new safety rules will be in place.

    Racing will resume with the Spinnaker Cup, which starts on Friday and goes from the San Francisco Bay area community of Belvedere to Monterey, the Coast Guard said.

    The Coast Guard had stopped issuing permits for ocean racing while awaiting results of a U.S. Sailing Association investigation into the April 14 fatal accident in the Full Crew Farallones Race.

    In that event, a large wave struck the 38-foot (11.6-meter) Low Speed Chase sailboat and swept crew members overboard as the ship rounded an island. Five people aboard the ship were killed, and three people survived.

    In a separate tragedy on April 28, a sailboat on a yacht race from southern California to Mexico disappeared from a tracking system off the Mexican coastline, and the bodies of four crew members were later found in the area.

    The Coast Guard was probing what led to those deaths, and had been looking at the possibility their ship hit rocks.

    After the Sailing Association issued preliminary findings on the wreck, the Coast Guard and the sailing community fashioned safety changes intended to prevent a similar accident.

    Under the changes, boats must maintain a safe distance from the rocky Farallon Islands, said Coast Guard spokesman Michael Lutz.

    The permit for the Spinnaker Cup race also includes new measures for race organizers and the Coast Guard to coordinate and account for participating sailors, Lutz said. In addition, it includes a random post-race boat inspection to ensure minimum safety requirements were met, he said.

    "The Coast Guard appreciates the tremendous support of the offshore race organizers and sponsoring yacht clubs during this safety stand-down," said Coast Guard Captain Cynthia Stowe, who is based in San Francisco.
