Here's an "old school" picture of the first Oregon Offshore Race......that year, the fleet headed south to Newport, Oregon instead of north to Victoria, so back then it was just the Oregon Offshore...now, it is the CYC Oregon Offshore INTERNATIONAL Yacht Race. In 1977, a hot new boat was just coming onto the sailing scene, the J-24!
Staysails, bloopers, tall boys, spankers and cross-cut spinnakers were all part of the first Oregon Offshore race.
