Five more boats!

In the last few days, we've received entries from five more boats, for a total of 24 so far.

  • Cool Change, a C&C 38 hailing from Portland, OR. She rates 144 and is skippered by Frank Noragon. 
  • Ion, a Beneteau 43 hailing from Nanaimo, BC. She rates 105 and is skippered by 2nd-time Oregon Offshore racer Bill Jones. 
  • Kaos, our second Santa Cruz 27 entry, hailing from Seattle, WA. She rates 156 and is skippered by H. James Parker. (We hear rumors that two or three more will enter, so the Santa Cruz 27s will likely be scored in their own fleet this year.)
  • Katzenjammer, a C&C 34 hailing from Portland, OR. She rates 147 and is skippered by CYC member Jim Calnon.
  • Tabu, a Farr 44 hailing from Seattle, WA. She rates 30 and is skippered by Jim Leonard. 

Please note we've also updated the Oregon Offshore Race Packet (2nd Amendment), which can be downloaded here. The entry deadline is in just a few days (April 21), so be sure to get your entry postmarked by then. Or, bring it to us at the Kickoff Party!

Kickoff Party Location has Changed!

Hello Offshore-goers!

Next Monday is the registration deadline for the race, and the famously fun Oregon Offshore Kickoff Party. We'll be at a different venue than you see in the Notice of Race, so be sure to show up at 1830 hours at ROGUE HALL in downtown Portland. The address is 1717 SW Park Ave, and PSU has a parking structure between 11th and 12th on Mill that may suit your needs.

As always, we'll have Oregon Offshore t-shirts and ladies' tanks for sale, along with food and beverage available for purchase. And don't forget about our awesome raffle. We've got some great prizes this year, so you don't want to miss it.

Bring us your registration then, or have it postmarked by that date to enter the race. See you next week!

Hello Oregon Offshore fans and racers,

We have received four more entries, including two Ericsons hailing from Astoria, OR:

We've also received an entry from Free Bowl of Soup, a J-105 hailing from Portland, OR. Skippers are Eric Hopper, Doug Schenk, and Matt Davis, and the boat rates 93. The fourth we received this weekend was last year's First Overall, Anam Cara. Skipper Tom Kelly (hailing from Portland, OR), has put together another rockstar crew to try to do it again. She rates 42.

We have only one week left to accept entries... Make sure they're postmarked by April 21, or delivered to CYC by the Kickoff Party that evening. The location of the Kickoff Party is TBD, so check back for updates.
