It's time again to get ready to race up the Washington Coast towards beautiful Victoria, British Columbia!

The Corinthian Yacht Club of Oregon is proud to announce the 42nd Annual Oregon Offshore International Yacht Race, to be held May 10th-13th, 2018.

The annual race, a mainstay for Northwest sailors, begins each year outside the mouth of the Columbia River near Astoria, Oregon and finishes in the picturesque harbor of Victoria, British Columbia.

Race registration will open on January 20, 2018 and CYC will begin taking race entrant registrations through Regatta Network on and after that date. The official Notice of Race (NOR), Safety & Equipment Requirements and links to the race registration page will be ready and available for early bird sign-ups at that time.

If you have any questions about the race, as either boat owner or crew, please contact CYC Race Captain Dennis Damore at race.captain@cycportland.org.

Don't forget the annual 2018 Oregon Offshore Kickoff Party, to be held again this year April 16th at Kell's Restaurant in downtown Portland. Further details will be posted soon about the pre-race festivities on the official race blog, so keep checking back for important updates!

The legendary Oregon Offshore Skipper's Meeting will be held again this year in Astoria, Oregon on May 9th. Race skippers and navigators are required to join CYC race organizers and other race participants for important last minute updates on weather, safety equipment, tides, race start time and the race course.

Come, join the action at the 2018 CYC Oregon Offshore! Get your registration in early, beginning next week on January 20, 2018!

Best regards & safe passage to all considering this annual Northwest journey!
