Last three entries: Raindrop, Journeyman, Wy'est

The Kick-off party on Monday was a success and we landed three additional entries for a total of 23 [participants! See entry details below

Raindrop, Cascade 36, PHRF 136
Last but not least, we have our final entry, the mighty Raindrop, Cascade 36, hailing from Portland. Skippers Joby Easton and Bill Huseby have been running a solid race program for awhile, 2008 Pac Cup, multiple Oregon Offshore races, including winning their fleet in the 2017, followed by an excellent race in the 2017 Vic Maui. Joby has put himself out there as a OOR mentor so if you are new to the race, he is a great resource.


Wy'est, Cascade 36, PHRF 141
It's official! Skipper Frank Colistro is back for even more blue water abuse. Frank has been an active member of CYC Portland for as many years as he has been racing Oregon Offshore and we are excited to support him and the Wy'East crew.

Wy'East holds the record for the boat that has participated in the most Oregon Offshore races to date.

Journeyman, Cal 40, PHRF 120
Journeyman is a 1968 Cal 40 skippered by Captain Rhys Balmer and Captain Gavin Brackett. Journeyman is the flagship of Griffin Bay Adventures, a new Sailing school located in Friday Harbor. Not only will this be Journeyman's introduction into the NW Sailing community but three students of offshore sailing will be learning dead reckoning, night sailing and big boat spinnaker handling as we sail up Washington's beautiful coastline.
