    Hi folks;
    What’s the current thinking about the drake’s bay race?

    Isn't that OYRA?....not an SSS race.

    However, your post got me to thinking that Drakes Bay might be a good place to head to the 3rd weekend in October, sort of as a season-ending long cruise.

    It’s a joint YRA-SSS race; it’s cancelled for YRA but still on SSS schedule at http://sfbaysss.org/main/, not showing postponed yet.

    OYRA and SSS have raced together to Drake's Bay for the last 6-7 years.

    Not sure if that will happen this year, since OYRA was not able to start their season. I haven't heard anything.

    There’s no way to do a crewed race to drakes bay this year; single or double would still be possible I think.

    to close the loop here; the OYRA is definitely not doing drake's bay this year and the park service has closed off access to the old CG dock, so any finish/start line committee work would have to be on the water or self-managed, but that's pretty straightforward. Someone needs to contact Laura for a permit; just need the usual info about crews, etc for cg info, and a way to track boats while on the water--that can be done by text. I know there's folks interested in doing this SH or DH.

    My favorite race outside the gate because of the destination and chance to sleep on the water! I hope it happens!!
