Riva is back, or is she?

Same boat name, same skipper, but not recognizable as the beautiful blue J/46 that has graced the Oregon Offshore for many years. This year Riva is the still beautiful, but brand new J/121, skippered by Scott Campbell and crewed by many familiar faces. The old Riva had her share of success in the Oregon Offshore, including first overall, first to finish and several class podiums through the years. Throw in the experience of three Pacific Cups and we can expect more of the same from the new Riva. In fact they could well be even more of a threat with less furniture down below in this boat designed to be an offshore rocket ship. As in the past Riva has an aggressive racing campaign planned with Swiftsure and Van Isle 360 on tap following the Oregon Offshore.
