The 2014 Oregon Offshore International Yacht Race. About 200 nm from Astoria, OR to Victoria, BC. What a wet and wild ride. We started off in about 20 knots of wind and chop, which gradually built to 25-30 gusting 35 knots and swells maxing out at around 12-15 feet. Race records were broken all around. The Bob Perry designed boat Icon was first across the finish line at 14:56 elapsed time, smashing the previous record by almost five hours.
I was on a Farr designed Mumm 36 race sled out of Portland, OR, named Panama Red.
