New California Offshore Race

"A new race is being formulated to run from San Francisco to Ensenada, Mexico. The start will be September 23, 2017," writes Bay Area naval architect Jim Antrim. "Part of the notion for this race is a more interesting way for Southern California boats to return home after the Rolex Big Boat Series, hence the timing. For NorCal sailors, what a great way to start your winter Mexico cruise! I hope the new wall won’t extend out into the ocean.

"The organizers are considering multihull classes, and that will depend on how much interest there is from the multihull community to enter. If it’s just one big SoCal multihull looking for a new course record, what’s the point? If a group of BAMA members are interested, great!"

Del Olsen of Richmond Yacht Club is the organizer of the 445-mile California Offshore Race. For more information, call (510) 237-2821. Hotel Coral & Marina will host on the Ensenada end.

Over the weekend, docks in the Bay Area were bustling with activity, as we were blessed by two splendid, sunny days, after enduring weeks of almost nonstop rainstorms.
