« on: June 12, 2017, 01:27:28 PM »
I've been asked to be race director on a new ocean race in Lincoln City Oregon in Aug 6th. We're brainstorming ideas for a super fun course. Seeking input on what the best format is for such as race and pros and cons?

Plan right now is on Sat Aug 5th, a 3 mile race in Devils Lake. Then a 6m ocean morning race Sunday Aug 6th. Either Sat and/or sun we'll also do a sup surf comp.
