The 1928 March races in Los Angeles, final notice

With all of the build up and hype, here's the last word before it all began. Pacific Coast Yachting gives us the final preview. As you can see from the entry list, we have 9 sixes entered; 3 from the East, 3 from San Francisco, and 3 from the Los Angeles area. On page 2 we have a nice profile shot of the brand new US 45 'Harpoon'. The R boats still have a very impressive 12 boat entry list, including future 6 meter owner Tommy Lee with his R 11 'Pirate'.

Pacific Motor Boat also gives a preview before the starting gun fires, though their information does not appear to be as accurate. Perhaps their lead time to press was longer?
