They'll Be Comin' around The Corner When They Come!

The last few remaining boats in the 2016 CYC Oregon Offshore International Yacht Race are closing in fast on the finish!

First in line will be C fleeter Makai, now just a few miles away from the finish at Victoria Harbour.
Makai is making great time, 7+ knots, and should be across the line within the hour.

Following close behind Makai is Cool Change and Blue Martini, who have both passed Race Rocks and are heading for the finish at speeds between 6 & 7 knots. It won't be long now!

At the turn, passing through Race Passage, are Cantata and Passepartout, making great time with lots of daylight left.

Around the corner, close behind, is the C & C 35 Mark III Thirsty... Alan Bergen and crew are probably pretty thirsty right now for a dockside beverage after 2 & 1/2 days at sea!

We'll keep you posted as the last boats cross the line and more pictures and videos from the racing come in!
