Default You Want "real Offshore" You Got It!!!

Over the years on OSO myself and the rest of you have heard a lot of cryin about "the old days", "Real offshore", "Ocean Racing" ...CIG vs Fountain vs OL
Who is the king of offshore.
Many of you don't care who is the fastest on flat water "it's the ocean that tell's the true story".



WELL HERE IT IS. CALL YOUR MANUFACTURER AND TELL THEM TO BRING THEIR BADEST RACE BOAT OR RACE/POKER RUN BOAT TO CLAIM THE TITLE


NO MORE WHINING OR or BS PRESS RELEASES

PUT THE DRAMA TO REST: FOUNTAIN IF YOU TRULY THINK YOU CAN BEAT "SPEED RACER" CALL HIM AND CHALLENGE HIM. There will be no denying the winner his claim to the title here. They'll be some other BIG CATS that will enjoy running the "CAT KILLER"

CIG we all know you have a secret weapon waiting to surprise us all!!! The "old man" upstairs created our sport on these Ocean Races.

OL...THERE IS more of your "Heavy duty hardware" that can handle this job than any other Manuf. You guys have a very impressive program and many Loyal fans. Don't let them down!!!!

Leave the boat ornaments on the dock cause there aint no turning around when it gets rough.(not directed towards real "offshore" chicks)



THIS IS A SANCTIONED RACE NOT A POKER RUN




NO ENTRY FEES FOR OSS/OPA/SBI 2006 Registered members.

Air travel to and from the event is very easy book your flights to Long Beach airport and take a shuttle of call us and we'll make sure to arrange pick-up.

We are expecting a good turn-out for our first event as an independent club and appreciate all of those teams that are going to travel to be with us. OSS Teams we will hit the road Monday AM for the 2500 mile run back to Toronto. We should make it by Thursday without much problem.

Offshoreonly will be there to cover the event. This is one of the nicest boating areas I have ever been to and Catalina is a very nice place to visit.

Making my plane reservations as we speak.

Sounds like an excellent event. Wish I could be there. I've heard rumblings of bringing back the Miami to New York race with two or three stops along the way the past couple of years and thought it was gonna happen this year, but have now heard nothing. I would like to see it come back so the east coast could have a like kind "toughboat" event.

This is what it is all about......open ocean water.

Is the East Coast going to stand for this? Letting the left coast brethern take the lead in taking us back to the roots of the sport with all the great old race sites on the east coast?

I applaud the move....now the manufacturers have to show how good their boats are in real "offshore" conditions.

I think there may be some people smiling down on this effort.
