The Buffalo Beach Work Party completed another successful trip to Buffalo Beach. The group left Monday, May 6th, one day after its original plan due to the Small Craft Advisory that was in effect for Southern California Coastal Waters.
Formed in the 1960s, the SSSS is a vital group of people who love to have fun sailing Sabots. It started with a group of San Diego Yacht Club women who wanted to learn to sail and skipper their own destinies rather than be second mate.
As we try to piece together the horrific events of Friday night and early Saturday morning, the crew of Uncontrollable Urge wants to express their appreciation for the support of the sailing and land-based communities at this difficult time.
Our deepest sympathies and prayers go out to the crew and family of the Uncontrollable Urge. On Friday March 9, 2013 at approximately 9:26 pm, while participating on the 4th annual Islands Race, the crew reported rudder failure on their VHF marine radio.
