Lots of J/105s this year! This will be Abstract’s first Oregon Offshore. And it will be the first Oregon Offshore for four of her six crew; however, overall the crew’s total experience makes up for any perceived shortcomings. This includes many Oregon Offshore races for the remaining two crew members and other Ocean races including Fastnet! and in multiple Swiftsure races and Bridge to Bridges so the crew should have enough to be in the game. Future plans include this year’s Swiftsure, where there is a one design class for J/105s, and next year’s Pacific Cup in the Doublehand division. Glad to have Portland based skipper, Doug Pihlaja, and crew join us!
