We always thought the boating and sailing community needed a better events calendar to help the public know about the extraordinary number and variety of on-the-water and nautical events in Seattle, Portland, Vancouver, Victoria, and all the boaty harbors in between. This calendar is our solution, and we hope you find it fills that need. From sailboat races to swap meets, rendezvous to rallies, seminars to seafood fests, we look forward to seeing you out there!

Due to COVID-19, some events may have been cancelled or postponed. Please double check with event organizers before attending.

Pacific NW Offshore (formerly Oregon Offshore) (48N Top 25)

June 10, 2021 - June 13, 2021

CYC Portland and Schooner Creek Boat Works Announces the 2021 Pacific Northwest Offshore is On!!

June 10-13 2021 from Ilwaco, WA to Port Angeles, WA

With 2020 now in the rear view mirror and with title sponsorship by Schooner Creek Boat Works, the Corinthian Yacht Club of Portland is committed to hold the PNW Offshore this coming summer. We made our decision with deep respect for the challenges faced by every one of us this past year, but with an optimism that by the time set for the race in mid-June precautions and restrictions will allow us to proceed safely for skippers and crew.

So, LET’S GO RACING! We will gather for the start in our host city, Ilwaco, Washington and everyone there is eager to finally have a chance to put on a welcome for the fleet. We will then race 193 rated miles from the Columbia River to the finish line near Port Angeles where we will be hosted by the Port Angeles Yacht Club and welcomed by The City of Port Angeles. The Port Angeles marina has space for us and is eager to have us visit.

The Notice of Race (NOR) will be published shortly, and we will be opening registration at the end of January. So let’s start getting ready. This is going to be a great race and a lot of fun, not to mention the start of a return to offshore racing in the Pacific Northwest.

The elephant in the room is how realistic it is that we can actually hold the race. All we can say is that the CYC Board and all the volunteers are intensely committed to finding a way to make this race happen. We have every intention of providing routine and complete information to competitors as to our progress and to notify them of any changes that would require boats to make adjustments to their preparations including conditions that might lead to cancellation. We intend to include in both the NOR and SI clear provisions relating to cancellation and the refunding of fees. That’s the best we can do for now given the changing Covid landscape.

But, as we said above – LET’S GO RACING! Here’s to seeing you in Ilwaco in June!
