It's been more than a week since the last of four hurricanes ravaged the Caribbean and Florida, but their effects were still being felt in Annapolis yesterday with the start of the 35th annual United States Sailboat Show at City Dock. Although the fall show attracted about 600 exhibitors, roughly the same number as last year, organizers likened many of the 250 sailboats that arrived this week to unexpected guests. Because of treacherous weather or damage to boats from the storms, many exhibitors found their vessels stranded far out of town and were forced to show different models than planned, said organizer Rick Franke.

A 25-year-old boater missing for a month was found Monday when his body washed ashore near Annapolis, according to police. At about 8 a.m., Maryland Natural Resources Police were called to the 2200 block of Chesapeake Harbor Drive, where they identified the body of Tyler Cordrey of Eden. Cordrey had been missing since Dec. 17, when a sailboat he was riding in with two others capsized near the Sandy Point lighthouse in the Chesapeake Bay. "We knew Tyler had not made it," his father, Keith Cordrey, also of Eden, said Tuesday morning.

Technically, says Rick Franke, an official of the 32nd United States Sailboat Show, most people get it wrong. A yacht is any vessel used for pleasure. So it depends on your point of view - one man's dinghy is another man's pleasure craft. But as Franke leads a guest along the docks that moor scads of the world's state-of-the-art cruisers and racers - bright boats bobbing in the hot October sun - at this weekend's extravaganza in Annapolis, there's little doubt about the nomenclature. That's especially true when he's asked flat-out to show what a million dollars can buy. In that price range, he says, you'll be getting certain amenities.

ANNAPOLIS - Four people were rescued yesterday when their 28-foot sailboat capsized shortly after noon in the South River, near Duvall Creek, the U.S. Coast Guard said. Two were rescued by the crew of a private boat, and the other two were pulled from the 63-degree water by members of the Coast Guard in Annapolis, said Petty Officer Scott Winslow. All four, who were wearing life jackets, were in good condition, he said. The sailboat was upside down and had to be towed, Winslow said.

WASHINGTON -- A collision last year between a Naval Academy sailboat and a coal barge being pushed by a tugboat in the Chesapeake Bay could have been avoided by crews on both vessels, the National Transportation Safety Board ruled yesterday.While saying the tugboat Sun Coast should have stopped when a crew member saw what he believed to be a sailboat on his radar screen, the board criticized academy crew members for not monitoring emergency radio channels.Investigators had proposed pointing the finger at the tugboat operator and only mentioning the mistakes by the Navy crew as contributing to the April 21, 1991, crash off Cove Point, 50 miles south of Annapolis.
