The Rolex International Women's Keelboat Championship ended yesterday without completing the 11th and final race of the week. Northerly winds died as the teams gathered off Annapolis and afternoon sea breezes failed to develop. With first place decided Thursday, the remaining race was expected to be a showdown for second and third between 2001 Rolex winner Cory Sertl (38 points), former Rolex Yachtswomen of the Year Jody Swanson (47 points), and 2004 Olympian Carol Cronin (48 points). Cronin won a redress hearing after Thursday's competition.

NEW YORK -- Orioles right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez had a special gift for rookie Kevin Gausman on Friday at Yankee Stadium: a new Rolex watch. It was payment for uniform No. 31, which Gausman switched to in the offseason after Dave Wallace joined the club. When Jimenez signed this winter he wanted either No. 30 - which Tillman had - or 31, which was Gausman's. Orioles equipment manager Chris Guth asked Gausman if he would give up his number, and the rookie agreed. Gausman then chose No. 39, which had been Jason Hammel's number.

Sally Barkow and her Team 7 crew continued to sail away from the competition at the Rolex International Women's Keelboat Championship regatta in Annapolis yesterday, winning two of three races. With five wins in eight races overall, Barkow has been so dominant that her throwout was a third-place finish in the first race of the regatta. The 2003 Rolex champion from Nashotah, Wis., holds a comfortable 20-point lead over Cory Sertl, the 2001 Rolex winner from Rochester, N.Y., going into the penultimate day of racing today.

With its purple spinnaker marked with an orange flame, the Up and Coming will stand out in the fleet of 67 teams from seven countries competing this week in Annapolis. The Rolex International Women's Keelboat Championship, one of the most competitive of the all-women regattas, is even more so with the Summer Olympics less than a year away. But the dockside chatter may have more to do with Team Levitra, the crew aboard Up and Coming, whose sponsor is duking it out with the maker of Viagra.

Tejada, who had been No. 10 in his first stint with the Orioles, said Tuesday he wasn't concerned about getting it back from Adam Jones, who had joked earlier in the week that Tejada could have it for a Rolex watch. Tejada had worn No. 4 with the Oakland A's, but the Orioles retired that number in honor of Hall of Fame manager Earl Weaver.

One day, my dad bought himself a new Rolex. He was about 70 and had cancer. His entire life he never wore a watch. "Why would anyone need a watch?" he would ask. "I can always tell the time within five minutes." As kids, we would test him and, more often than not, he was right. "What do you think of my new watch," he asked from the couch. He sat slightly tilted, maybe from the pain, with a blanket over his lap and a dozen pill bottles on the coffee table beside him. Slanting afternoon sunlight filled the room from a row of windows behind him. I was home for a weekend visit during that long last year.

With one day to go in the Rolex International Women's Keelboat Championship, regatta leader Sally Barkow and her Team 7 crew are taking the rest of the week off. The 2003 defending champion ended yesterday's racing in Annapolis with such a commanding lead that she has no need to sail today's final competition. Barkow reeled off two more wins, giving her a total of six out of 10 races, and 14 points overall. "It didn't feel that easy," said Barkow, 25, of Nashotah, Wis., who also won the Yngling World Championship this year.
