Race to Oxford

Anyone going? I'm not doing the race but I'll be at the party. I'll be racing on log canoes and camping out on the good ship Ojigiwan (big cat w/ orange stripe) near the club.

Re: Race to Oxford

I wasn't with them, but they probably were out there. Dock call is 0800 to step the rig. That should be interesting. I still haven't figured out what gear I should bring on this thing... Chances of going swimming are high. YOu have to drop the rig to right the boat, ridonkulous. Should be a good time.

Re: Race to Oxford

As I recall..depending vessel..you all will be wearing color coordinated clothing..but yes expect to get wet. You'll see why they have to un rig the mast after a knock down.. More fun on the hiking boards

How is that race? Thinking maybe we could do that one this year.

And what happened last year that the PHRF B and N races were abandoned, but the C guys finished?

Re: Race to Oxford

The race in September is great. The party is even better.

Last year race committee screwed the pooch and tried to recal B and N. Long story, but the outcome was an abandonement. It did not please the rest of the village. Everyone is hoping this year will have clean starts for all fleets.

Parties are good. So do most boats anchor out to attend the party and deliver home the next day? I'm not too up on the Oxford area though its been on my list of places to visit for a couple of years now, I just haven't gotten around to it.

I'll keep an eye out for the NOR.
