The Right Thing





From Ullman Sails’ Chuck Skewes…

The Campbell Cup in Long Beach with the Sleds and Farr 40 was this last weekend.  On Alchemy we were waiting for the wind to come in on Saturday while in Postponement and a baby Sea Lion started coming up to the stern of the boat.  It had a fishing net wrapped twice around it’s neck cutting into it’s flesh.  The sea lion then jumped up on our boat obviously seeking help.  It was very docile and not fearing us at all.  We called everyone we could to come rescue it and finally the harbor master at Alamitos bay got in touch with the Fire Rescue and Animal Control.  We had to leave the race course and bring the sea lion into the Harbor Patrol dock where we scooted it off the boat onto the dock and animal control cam and got it.  The race committee postponed the 70’s until we got back on the race course.  A call to the Wild Life Rescue on Sunday confirmed that the sea lion was doing better.
