Baltimore Police Commissioner Anthony W. Batts sailed through a confirmation hearing on Wednesday, with City Council members and residents praising his accessibility and moves toward reform. At this time last year, Batts faced questions from city leaders about his leadership amid a surge in shootings as his strategic plan remained in the works. Now, with violent and property crime down and a series of initiatives launched to address community concerns and improve police procedures, council members encouraged Batts to keep moving the department forward.

For Allan Terhune, an Arnold resident and employee of the North Sails One Design sail-making company in Annapolis, a successful season of competitive sailing in 2013 is exciting, but it means he and his crew only have more work to do in 2014. Terhune, 34, won several races last year, including such major ones as the Cedar Point Yacht Club's (Conn.) Lightning North American Championships, the J/22 World Championship and the Thistle U.S. National Championship. He also was selected in December as one of nine nominees for the Rolex Yachtsman of the Year, which will be announced in mid-January.

Philadelphia-based Delancey Street Capital said Tuesday it bought the Sail Cloth Factory apartments near the University of Maryland, Baltimore for $12.9 million last month, the firm's fourth acquisition in the city. Delancey Street President Daniel Kline said he was drawn by the 107-unit building's prime location, as well as lower rents that he said make the property stand out. One bedroom apartments at the Sail Cloth Factory start around $1,110, but rates in nearby buildings that have been more recently renovated often start several hundred dollars higher.

The "Columbian year" is finally with us. In an impermanent world, Christopher Columbus is one of only a few humans who gets to have a 500th anniversary commemoration.In company with Jesus, Mohammed and Confucius, his deeds have penetrated the globe. Explorers there have been, many of them, but Columbus is a standout. For better or worse, his adventures have changed the entire world.But how much do we know about this New World explorer? The information is piecemeal, gathered from spotty documentary records.

Kathy and John Deutsch moved to Annapolis from Allentown, Pa., in September for one reason: They wanted to spend time with boats. The couple had taken sailing classes and fallen in love with the Chesapeake Bay, the sailing culture and the laid-back town. "It is that sense of adventure ... and thrill of being out on the water," said Kathy Deutsch, 58, the proud owner of a 41-foot sailboat. The Deutschs came to the right place. Boating and maritime culture dominate Annapolis and are major parts of life in Anne Arundel County.

The striking thing about the Jet-14 racing dinghy national championships on the Chesapeake Bay last weekend was the number of husbands and wives sailing together. When my wife, Valerie, and I enrolled with the Annapolis Sailing School many years ago, the first thing the instructor did was assign us to different boats. The rationale: one partner, usually the male, is dominant afloat, undermining the other's training. But there they were at the Severn Sailing Association, racing together: Greg Kowski and wife Ann Neff, last year's Jet-14 national champions who finished second this year; Dave and Ann Hansen, who traveled 600 miles from Utah to sail here together; Rhett and Celeste Simonds, who have been sailing together for 26 years; and lots of other couples.

The weekend begins on Wednesday nights in Annapolis with the blast of a starting gun. That's when dozens of sailboats jockeying in the Severn River harbor head to the starting line for the Annapolis Yacht Club's Wednesday night races, a summer tradition in this waterfront community since the 1960s. What began as "beer can races" - just a casual event to break up the week - has become serious business for the sailors, as well as for City Dock bars and restaurants. "This is real sailing," said Bobby Frey, the yacht club judge who runs the races, which are perfect for the competitive sailors who don't have the time to travel the country to regattas.

The Dreambuilder was making slow progress. The 35-foot-long sailboat meandered in the waters off Annapolis on Wednesday as its teenage crew stood on deck and watched in dismay. “I don't think I've ever gone so fast,” Tommy Pipher, 16, said dryly from the helm. “I think the rudder's broken,” said Ellie Wood, 16. Pipher and Wood, rising juniors at South River High School in Edgewater, are part of a group of 13 students who have been learning the ins and outs of sailing and navigation over two weeks at the National Sailing Hall of Fame, a sailing education nonprofit in Annapolis.

Your recent report about the "sails" sculpture I designed for Patterson High School suggests to me that the conservator hired by the school system to preserve it does not understand the intent behind the artwork ( "City evaluates art in schools as part of 10-year renovation plan," June 19). The well-known architect of the building, Van Fossen Schwab, asked me to create a sculpture that could protect a large, glass second-floor window from vandals as well as allow light to enter the interior.

For the past week, Robert Suhay has often imagined sailing the Chesapeake Bay, visualizing various tide patterns, weather conditions and landmarks as he tames the vast body of water. That mental exercise has helped the long-distance sailor keep his confidence high ahead of his attempt at a feat no one has accomplished: Starting today, the 51-year-old from Norfolk, Va., will try to sail the Chesapeake Bay, from Norfolk to Pooles Island near Chestertown and back, alone in a Laser dinghy, a sailboat just under 14 feet long.

Annapolis skipper John White, whose USA 1162 team won the only race of the day in the J/80 class, earned North Sails Local Boat of the Day at the Sperry Top-Sider NOOD Regatta Annapolis on the Chesapeake Bay. “Off the starting line, we were confident the east side of the course would be best for stronger winds and better current,” said White, whose team is preparing for the J/80 World Championship in Annapolis later this year. “We had a great start and won our side, but Will Crump [of Annapolis, the current J/80 class leader]

As a Maryland citizen who enjoys the autumn sailing season best of all, I thought people should consider that the hunting season affects those of us navigating the tributaries of the Chesapeake as well ("Blue laws fade, Sunday hunt proceeds," April 8). Hunting blinds are all along the Eastern Shore waterways, and if the ban on Sunday hunting is lifted it will mean that my peaceful sailing days in the fall are over.

Last Monday, the defender and challenger committees for America's Cup '95 agreed to make a number of changes in how the Super Bowl of yacht racing is run."We believe this agreement signals the beginning of a new spirit of sportsmanship between the defender and challenger syndicates," America's Cup '95 chairman Frank Hope Jr. said in San Diego. "From a racing perspective, the agreement is designed to make the elimination series a fair test of sailing and design abilities."But the agreement also will eliminate or further regulate some of the side-show activities that have surrounded the Cup for a number of years -- espionage, closed boating compounds, bidding wars for top skippers and crews, etc.The agreement also recommends a centralized location (Commercial Basin)

Reigning national champion Duke made a break from tradition - in a positive way. Sunday's 14-6 victory over Stony Brook guaranteed that the top-ranked Blue Devils will finish February with a 4-0 record. It's the first time since 2008 that the program did not suffer a loss in the first month of the season. But if coach John Danowski is supposed to be doing cartwheels over the achievement, he sounded remarkably composed from his campus office on Tuesday morning. “It's February, and it's February lacrosse,” Danowski said by phone as he prepares Duke for an Atlantic Coast Conference showdown with No. 3 Maryland at Byrd Stadium on Saturday at noon.
