310-Port is to the NORTH!

Donzi-Holycow, you're right! I had been previously told that the race was going through the breakwall and never checked the apba site to confirm it though. Good catch!

If you don't want to run with us we will also be rafting at the races.

You mean there is no spectator fleet viewing area inside the harbor?? That will SUCK. You will not see any of the race from an anchor outside the walls. Remember, you can't anchor in a navigation channel, which eliminates all the openings in the harbor wall. What about the mouth of the river near the highway bridge?? Or way south near the opening???

It looks like you may be able to view the race WAY south or WAY north of the course. Looks like the north side, near the entrance to the yacht club and McKinnly marina might be best.

Cord, where are you planning on putting the boat in the water? Or are we going to watch from land???

Mike

looking at the map, I don't think you'll want to be on the south side. It looks like they will be directing most of the traffic through that entrance. The north one wouldn't be bad. You could always just anchor by the summerfest grounds/art museum. That the big hook thing that projects into the bay. They don't have it designated as a safety zone though. Better take your dramamine, cause it's gonna be rough!
