Missed last year. Any tips? We will be tent camping in the gravel of the RV park. Stop by for a beer.

Think it will ever go to Point Roberts?

Gonna miss those OHYC mussells and breakfasts.

Numbers were still down compared to pre-COVID. About 62 competitors. Started off light AF, then Wednesday afternoon we finally got some wind.
Thursday and Friday had great sailing except that current was pretty strong on Friday. Hard to call the laylines from farther out. Many boats had to short-tack to make the weather mark. All-in-all, a fun event with potential to get back at least part way to the good ol' days.

Some very creative boat renaming under the cover of darkness Thursday night.

Curious that the R/C let boats race in the handicap classes (and get trophies) when they didn't even comply with the entry requirements in the NOR. OSR Category 4 requires lifelines.

Anyone else curious about about that phrf exchange rate? Dash 34 ratings are substantially slower this side of the border.
I gave up trying to find any semblance of reason behind PHRF NW ratings.
Hell, for that matter, all of PHRF, everywhere. It's an insiders' game with a stacked deck.
