Friends, family, even strangers are coming together in memory of the victims of a weekend boating accident on the Farallon Islands.
Alexis Busch of Larkspur, Alan Cahill of Tiburon, 25-year-old Kentfield resident Jordan Fromm and Elmer Morrissey of Ireland — remain missing. Belvedere resident Marc Kasanin, 46, was pulled out of the water by rescuers and confirmed dead Saturday.
Busch's boyfriend Nick Vos of Sonoma is one of three men rescued by the Coast Guard and Air National Guard helicopters and boats Saturday from the accident, along with Tiburon's Brian Chong and captain James Bradford of Chicago.
The San Francisco Yacht Club set up a Facebook page in memory of the crew of the Low Speed Chase lost in the accident.
The U.S. Coast Guard and Air National Guard announced Sunday night that crews had suspended the search for the missing sailors. That somber announcement came after more than 30 hours of scouring an area of more than 5,000 square miles following a fatal boating accident Saturday afternoon involving the 38-foot Sydney yacht, according to the Coast Guard.
The yacht was competing in the 2012 Full Crew Farallones Race Saturday when it met with large waves near one of the Farallon Islands around 3 p.m., Coast Guard Petty Officer Levi Read said. The boat was tossed by the waves, sending multiple crewmembers into the water and the yacht into the rocks.
The San Francisco Giants held a moment of silence for the victims before Monday's game with the Philadelphia Phillies.
Busch, an avid baseball fan, claimed her own piece of Major League Baseball history when she became the first batgirl, working with her beloved Giants from 1999-2002. Her father, Corey Busch, is a former Giants executive vice-president.
"A true baseball fan, she was a passionate and dedicated member of our organization and (Alexis) will be deeply missed by the Giants family," Giants President and CEO Larry Baer wrote in a statement Monday.
