Battle of the Cascades

The 2016 CYC Oregon Offshore International Yacht Race featured three classic Cascade 36 sailboats, Raindrop, Bum's Rush & Wy'East.
Although sailing in different classes due to rating considerations, no doubt these three boats were keeping a close eye on each other (as we were), and having their own "race within a race" for Cascade 36 line honors. The winner of this year's "Cascade Cup" (I made that up) was Raindrop, finishing first in Class B & 7th Overall; they corrected out to 2nd in Class B behind Blade Runner and placed 2nd Overall in the PHRF fleet.
Check out the video of the Race Tracker following the three Cascade 36's up the course to the finish.
Note: Wy'East had some early transponder difficulties and were not reporting accurate positions early in the race....they didn't get a head start!
