The Coast Guard is asking sailing’s national governing body to investigate last month’s fatal yacht racing accident off the San Francisco coast.
Friends and family of one of the sailors lost in the capsizing of the sailboat Low Speed Chase are gathering for a memorial service hosted by the San Francisco Giants on Monday.
A 38-foot yacht that was involved in a deadly crash earlier this month was recovered from the Farallon Islands Monday.
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.
