San Francisco Police investigators are now looking into this past weekend’s fatal sailboat accident at the Farallon Islands. However, that does not necessarily mean there’s suspicion that criminal or negligent activity lead to the accident.
The deaths of five sailors in a race around the Farallon Islands over the weekend won’t change safety protocols for the America’s Cup when the regatta comes to San Francisco, organizers said.
The U.S. Coast Guard has suspended its search for four sailors missing after a yacht struck the rocks near the Farallon Islands on Saturday during a race, and will not be resuming the search Monday.
One person is dead and four others still missing after a boat involved in a race around the Farallon Islands ran aground.
A gray whale mother and calf were spotted in San Francisco Bay again Thursday morning, and officials from the Gulf of the Farallones National Marine Sanctuary were warning boaters to give them a wide berth.
