This is it! The time of year that sailors, boats and families flock to the little sleepy town of Cascade Locks, Oregon for some amazing events put on by the small sailing group known as the Columbia Gorge Racing Association.
My fingers are fat sausages, my nose is sunburnt, my eyes are blurry and my boss just doesn’t understand why we do this! What a great weekend this not-Huntington turned out to be, but this is not where the story begins…
Three Moores made it to the start line with two making round the rock, I started with a # 3 and full main, reefed at Bonita just before the washing machine started. On the way out at some point I heard a bang that wasn't comforting but couldn't see any thing wrong. It was only when I gybed under the Rock and was shaking out the reef did I see the goose neck was only partially attached. Nothing really could be done but hope it didn't tear off completely.
The 3-3-3 thing at the fine Belvedere cove anchorage was a great success. If you missed it there will always be next year. Here are some pics from Karl and some video from Jenny on the Flying Tiger... and it is great! Thanks to everyone for making the event a fine success.
