First 2016 Oregon Offshore Entrant - Kinetic V

Veteran Oregon Offshore skipper David Sutcliffe is the first to enter this year's race in his new TP52, Kinetic V. This racing machine from Vancouver, BC, is awaiting a PHRF rating; however, we are certain she will be at the head of the pack.


Welcome back David! 
Thanks for kicking off the 40th Anniversary in style!

New GoPro Video From the J/42 VELOCITY

Here's a new video from 2nd place (both PHRF A and overall - shortened course) winner VELOCITY.  An intrepid crew member on Tom Keffer's J/42 used a GoPro camera to film their 2015 Oregon Offshore experience.  

Watch for an interesting perspective on the sail change procedure starting at 1:58, and we wish we were in on the joke at 2:40.


Next year's theme is "40 for 40"; we're aiming for 40 boats (and more great videos!) for the 40th Oregon Offshore race.  Let's make it happen!

Mea Culpa, Velocity!

Velocity had completed the shortened course and reported a time to the race committee, but her reported time did not make it to the scorer's table.  The CYC Race Committee regrets this error, and would like to recognize the crew of Velocity for their determination in finishing the shortened course.  Per the SI's, Velocity will be awarded 2nd place in PHRF A.  Congratulations, Velocity.

The finish order (overall) for the full course remains:
Rage 1st

The finish order (overall - corrected time) for the shortened course is:
Rage      1st
Velocity  2nd
Evermoore 3rd
