Race time is drawing near

This weekend many of our racing boats will be heading to Astoria in preparation for the race.  We have boats coming from Portland, Seattle, and Port Townsend.  All are expected to converge on the West Basin in Astoria to complete their final preparation for the race.

The next event on the agenda is the Skipper's Meeting in Astoria on Wednesday, May 11.  Doors at the Astoria Event Center open at 1800 hours and the meeting is at 1830 hours.

CYC member and long time offshore racer Timm Lessley will give the weather briefing after the Skipper's meeting.  Timm always has some interesting insights about the race.

Our start is Thursday morning at the civilized time of 1030 hours.  This year the tides just worked out!
