I used to go watch the races all up and down the California coast. The races would have approx. 70 race boats on average and then dwindled down to a total of 13 boats the last race I ever went to in Oceanside, Ca. about 4-5 yrs ago. I don't even bother going anymore.

I also think that all the ego's have ruined the sport. I know there are some good guys out there racing (cheers to you ) but idiots like Alweiss turned alot of people off to racing. There was way too much arguing, etc..... I don't think the sport will ever gain momentom. The East Coast is alot busier racing than the West Coast.....POPRA might as well be extinct.
