Tonight is the Kickoff Party and the deadline for entry. Since the deadline requires entries to be postmarked by midnight tonight, we may see a few entries trickle in over the next few days. Check back tomorrow to hear about the skippers who are bringing their entries to the Kickoff Party!Photo credits Jan Anderson for Neptune's Car and Dena Kent for Cool Change.
Hello Offshore Racers!
Don't forget...tonight is the 37th Annual Oregon Offshore Kickoff Party! All skippers, crew, and potential 2013 Oregon Offshore sailors are welcome to join the Corinthian Yacht Club of Portland at Kells Irish Restaurant and Pub. Come share the excitement with fellow competitors as we discuss the upcoming race. The Kickoff Party is a great place to chat with veteran skippers about boat prep and logistics, compare notes on proven strategies, and find crew or boats searching for crew.

Mention their Manager's Special when making a reservation.
It's a nice place within walking distance of the West Basin moorage. The Manager's Special is for one King or two Queen beds, a fireplace, and a Riverfront view for $119 plus tax. Call soon, as the number of rooms is not guaranteed.

We've updated the race packet once again. This will be the final version for this year. Any other changes will be outlined in the Supplemental Race Instructions, which will be posted online and distributed at the Skippers' Meeting on May 8, in Astoria, OR.
If you haven't turned in your entry yet, please be sure you've downloaded the most recent packet with the updated entry and waiver forms. You can download it here.
Feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions, and remember, all entries must be postmarked no later than Monday, April 22, or delivered at the Kickoff Party at Kells that evening. That leaves only six more days!

Steve Rander of Schooner Creek Boat Works kicked off the evening with an informative presentation on how he approaches preparing his yacht for offshore passages. Frank Colistro followed with a race strategy session for Oregon Offshore competitors (much of the content reflects Timm Lessley’s strategy for California Girl, so it’s worth studying!). The event concluded with a cruiser's view of the Salish Sea. Eric Rouzee shared some of his favorite cruising grounds in the region with a picture tour, and these hidden gems will now be a little more popular for it.
Special thanks to Eric Hopper and West Coast Event Productions / Pure Space for providing the venue!
