a THE MARIN LOG By BETTY FROST, l-J Yachting Editor 92 Yachts In Corinthian Regatta; Yachting Authority Speaks Tonight Ninety-two yachts, favored by clear skies and strong breezes, raced in the fourth of the Corinthian Midwinter Regattas on Sunday. Final race in the series will be Feb. 22. Most thrilling finish of the day was in the Farrallone Clipper class, with Claire Briggs’ Goddess first across the finish line, a scant three seconds ahead of Aldo Alessio’s Mistress II. Basil Knauth’s colorful gaff- rigged yawl, Bimi, suffered a torn mainsail during the day’s action, and was the victim of a watery rear-end collision when Dr. Glen Cross’s Simba bumped into the Bimi’s stern. Neither yacht reported damages.
