    Marina Village Yacht Harbor, Alameda. Worked well for me both before and after the 2018 race. Proximity to Oakland airport, great facilities, helpful staff.

    Yep, that's my conclusion. My policy says I'm covered in "coastal waters of the US and Canada", and offers no definition of that term. The US exerts authority over its coastal waters out to 200 nm,...

    Greetings from Hilo. From my perspective here I think Jim is right, and that Kauai will be in sync with the travel program the rest of the state is using by then. And, FWIW, if the race runs this...
