Northern Century Race July 11-13 in the PNW

It looks like we're on for this as I repaired the previous weekend's carnage and heard back from the organizer. The race starts on Friday at 7:00 PM and the cutoff is Sunday at 3:00 PM for 100 miles of non stop double handed racing. I'm really looking forward to this, especially since the forecast is calling for 15-25 knot winds.

Thanks Jody. I've got a rook as crew but he can do well enough that I can get a nap or two in.

Well that is better than no crew anyways - besides I know you'll not sleep a wink.


I looked into it - but doubt my boat meets most of the specs outlined (at least from all the life raft perspective) and the one person that usually crews with me will be out of town....

Just try to keep that Genoa in one piece

What was the PIYA rating, I?!?!?! This race just goes around the sanjuans does it not? Do not see a reason for the I rating, could possibly see the II, altho III would be minimum. IV would be the worst of them! I could just imagine a laser showing up!

Good luck!

Looks like I'll be traveling my bobcat and other equipment for a 2'ish week stay on Crane island sunday or monday.

The rating was II and yes, it's a race around the San Juan's. I'm hoping the air is heavier than normal for this time of year.
