COOL is on a distinguished road
I sailed my Islander 30, Double Handed on the Long Course,
in the inaugural race last year. It worked out very well for us.
It was a quick race and we were able to complete the course
in about 15 hrs, with one of the smallest and slowest rated
boats out there.
Logistically it was a much more feasible option for me than
the Ensenada Race, and my boat was back in its slip in
Long Beach by Sunday evening.
There is no Singlehanded division, and if you have
limited experience with overnight racing, your best bet
will be to find a crew position on some one elses boat
for your first few races.
