YBYC: Bridge to Bridge

Chris left for the mooring basin about a half hour ago, and by now the crew should be underway and heading for the Columbia River Bar for the Bridge to Bridge race. This will be a first-time experience for the four crew members. Wish I could be there, but someone's got to work...

The B2B website says this about the race:
This race is one of the most exciting sailboat races in the Pacific Northwest! Sail through 100 miles of sunshine, blue skies and the most beautiful coastline on the West Coast. The race starts at the mouth of the Columbia River at buoy 2 and finishes in beautiful Newport, Oregon; it is handicapped at just under 100 nautical miles and is usually an overnight race. The elapsed time record is held by “Grins” at 10 hours and 45 minutes.

Chris will be checking in regularly, and will hopefully send photos along with the texts and calls.
