Decision Time...Inside or Outside?

Race Rocks is a pivotal point in this race's final miles. Previous Oregon Offshores have been won - and lost - at this crucial point on the course, where the fleet turns north towards the race finish outside of Victoria Harbour.

There is plenty of depth to take a shorter, inside route through Race Passage. However, at night, in the dark, with an ebb tide, it's not always as easy as it may seem or look on a navigation chart.

In a race like the one we have now, there is little doubt that both lead boats will try to shave as much distance as possible, and may likely take the shorter route through Race Passage. Rage is riding up fast behind Kinetic V, but Kinetic V is still leading... We could have a very exciting finish for line and fleet honors!
