Rage Picks Off Panama Red & Anam Cara

After a slow start to the 2016 CYC Oregon Offshore International Yacht Race, Rage is clawing her way through the last few lead boats; she just passed astern of Anam Cara but is now clear ahead, and now on her way to passing Panama Red. The fleet seems to like to tuck under the lee of the south jetty at Westport, probably for smoother water and some current relief, but there's definitely a corner to turn here and crew work will be key. Everyone  is starting to get a little bit tired about now; it's maybe not the best time to initiate a tacking duel!
