Aja drifts across the finish

Congratulations to Aja as the last boat to finish the 2009 Oregon Offshore.

With a great deal of fortitude, Aja has spent over the last hour just trying to make it to the finish from the outside of the Ogden Point breakwater. After a short discussion with the RC about the effect of motoring (it's a disqualification for all but the cruising class) Aja made the decision like a true sailboat racer to keep racing.

Since the wind all but shut down over an hour ago, this has meant that the finish committee has been watching them bob like a cork for all this time.

Like the Old Salt, Aja kept at it until they finally crossed the finish at 2:27.

Get a good night sleep, Aja you deserve it.
