Record Breaking Year! Oregon Offshore 2014 - 36 Hours After the Start

As Souffle heads towards the finish line to close the door on the 2014 Oregon Offshore sailing race, the Corinthian Yacht Club of Portland would like to extend thanks again to all of the participants, and congratulate everyone on a fantastic race this year in the 38th running of the CYC Oregon Offshore.

Starting in good ol' Oregon "Liquid Sunshine" and 20-25 knot southerlies, the wind built steadily on day one to over 30 knots of true breeze, swinging around to a stiff westerly direction conveniently as the majority of the fleet hit the turn at Cape Flattery.

If there ever was a "perfect storm" for the Oregon Offshore, this was it.

We at CYC are most appreciative of the professionalism, preparation, tenacity and true grit of all the participants in this year's race, they successfully challenged their boats, skills and nerves in the most grueling Oregon Offshore in many years, maybe ever in the 38 year history.

Congratulations again to all racers and remember; it's never too early to start planning for next year's race!

What? It is too early? ...Ok, got it!

2014 CYC Race Captain
