Darrell.
Thanks for the info. Much appreciated....you just saved me about $500 in fuel !!!
I just spoke to the SD coast guard and they confirmed the saftey setback from the flight box perimeter will be 3/4 of a mile. So, we would be 3/4 of a mile from one end of the racecourse and the course is about a mile long. The guy I spoke to also said if your just coming to watch, you should be on land for the best views. I guess I'll just make another run out to Catalina instead. Thanks again for the info, Darrell.

Sorry man - just too much effort to drag it down to Oceanside, get a slip for sat night, spend $500 in fuel to run all the way down and back and not even get to see much of the races at all. I'll be out in Catalina pretty much every weekend this summer - I'm sure I'll run into you sooner or later. Take care and enjoy the weekend, my bet is it'll clear up and just be a bit cold on the water....
