The View from a Warm Bed is Nice

The first night can be a tough adjustment on Oregon Offshore with all the excitement from an early morning start. By now most boats have sent their first crew shift down below for some Zzz. Since racing is around the clock, boats work in a crew shift to stay fresh and in the race zone. Crew will rotate out on a timed schedule through out the day and night to sleep for a 3-5 hours at a time. Crew management and health is a very important aspect of offshore racing. Since this sport can be physically and mentally demanding, strong, black coffee can be your best friend.
As we retire for the night we wish the racers the best from our warm, dry and stable beds.
