Sail "Bridge to Bridge" the Original Course of the first Oregon Offshore races....Astoria to Newport on August 15th

Just Can't Get Enough?!?
Of racing sailboats offshore in Oregon I mean?
Well, here is your chance to do it again, to the south this time!

WHO: Yaquina Bay Yacht Club in Newport, Oregon
WHAT: The Bridge to Bridge Race
WHEN: August 15 - 17, 2014
WHERE: Astoria to Newport, Oregon (app. 100 nm)
WHY: Here is your chance to sail the original route of the first Oregon Offshore races! Race south from Astoria to Newport Oregon through 100 miles of sunshine, blue skies and the most beautiful coastline on the West Coast. Racers will travel from the mouth of the Columbia to the mouth of the Yaquina in Newport, Oregon. The race is handicapped at just under 100 miles and is usually a starlit overnight race. The elapsed time record is held by Dave French's Olson 30 “Grins” at 10 hours and 45 minutes! This Northwest version of the Ensenada Race is a PIYA Category 1 offshore race. Plan a stay in Newport and explore the fabulous central Oregon coast, or get together with your fellow competitors and race back to Astoria.
