We've got 15!

The Kickoff Party was a lot of fun, and brought in three more boats.

Phil Lewis, of Portland, OR is planning to race his Cal 34, Souffle, in cruising class again.

Three more entries this week makes 11 so far

The numbers are still a bit light, but we've received promises from about another five boats that they'll race. Hopefully some more stragglers will show as well.

However, we recently received three more entries:

Thirsty, skippered by Portland's own Alan Bergen. Thirsty is a C&C 35 Mk III, and she rates 132.


Anam Cara, another Portland boat, is skippered by Tom Kelly. This J-122 rates a whopping 42!

And Astoria's favorite Aja. She is an Ericson 35-2, rating 150, and her skipper is Rich Elstrom.


Welcome! Get your entries in the mail or bring them to us at Kells Irish Restaurant and Pub on Monday night!

Registration Deadline and Kickoff Party - April 20!

Hello Oregon Offshore racers and fans!

The entry deadline for this year's race is approaching quickly. You must either have your entry postmarked by midnight on April 20, 2015, or bring your entry to the Kickoff Party that same day.

The Kickoff Party is a ton of fun. Food and drinks will be available to purchase, and we plan to have t-shirts available for purchase as well. As usual, we will have a bunch of racing or sailing-related goodies to raffle off, and you'll get to hear about the boats that have entered.

For the Kickoff Party, show up at 6:30pm at
Kells Irish Restaurant and Pub
112 SW 2nd Ave
Portland, OR 97204

So far we have a smaller number, at 8 boats. However, we've heard from another six or seven who say they have mailed entries, or that they are for sure racing but just haven't gotten their entries in yet. With the likely few more stragglers, it will be a decent fleet.

If you have questions or need help completing your entry, email us at

Thank you, and see you on April 20!
