A chat with a veteran racer

Veteran Oregon Offshore racer Bruce Bloch

Bruce has crewed for seven races including boats like Riva, a Portland based J/46.
Every year he said it was the last and just kept going!
Just talking about things to take...3 wool hats, they get wet quickly!
My two best things to bring are heavy duty ear plugs! and rubberized workman's gloves to go over your wool gloves! On night watch you will be happy to have them, be sure you put your name on your pair! It can be cold and wet or hot!!!! Be prepared. OOOO remember snacks for night watch.
