Entry: Anam Cara, J/122

Well it looks like Anam Cara's Portland based skipper, Tom Kelly, will close the gap this year for participating in the most Oregon Offshores ever. This will be Tom's 37th year (this will be the 42nd year of the race period so this is quite the feat)! Anam Cara is no stranger to the race with a 2013 First Overall Win under her belt. She has also performed well in Swiftsure's Cape Flattery with two Overall wins and a Second Overall to boot. With a 42 PHRF handicap, Anam Cara is sure to be in the running again this year for both OOR and Swiftsure.

It should be known that around 1984 Tom previously held the elapsed time record for eleven years, achieved on Wizard a Choate 41, back when the race course headed south to Tillamook before going North. Let's see what records will be set this year!
