    Bonneville Dam, Cascade locks, to The Dalles Dam, The Dalles, Oregon, August 14th, 2010


    The Hood River Yacht Club welcomes sailors to the third annual “Double Damned” race, "A different kind of insanity". We are looking forward to another great race!

    Format: Racing will be from a start line in the vicinity of Cascade Locks, Oregon to a finish line in the vicinity of The Dalles, Oregon. This is a 41 mile West to East course in an area of typically strong prevailing Westerlies. A short course may be adopted and defined at the Saturday morning competitor's meeting.

    Eligibility and Safety. All vessels participating shall comply with USCG safety regulations for their vessel and should be prepared to sail in heavy wind, after dark, and in the presence of commercial vessel traffic. Competitors shall wear a PFD while sailing. An operating VHF radio must be carried.

    Ratings and Rules: Due to the typically windy conditions in the Gorge, ratings from areas with similar conditions will be applied. Sailors.com (SF Bay) base rating will be used for all vessels. If a competitor’s vessel is not listed on sailors.com, a valid PHRF certificate or the US Sailing “average rating” may be used. “As Sailed” rating adjustments displayed on a valid rating certificate shall be applied to the applicable base rating.

    The race will be governed by the current rules of sailing as defined in The Racing Rules of Sailing, 2009-2012.

    Launching and Logistics: Boats shall be ramp launched in Cascade Locks and ramp recovered in The Dalles. A water depth of six feet is expected over the end of the ramps, however lower depths are possible.

    Moorage will be available in Cascade Locks and The Dalles on a first come, first served basis.

    A shuttle service will operate on Saturday morning allowing competitors to leave their trailers and cars at the race finish in The Dalles

    Sailing Instructions: Sailing instructions will be included in race packets at check in, and may be available on line prior to the race.

    Scoring: The Low Point scoring system will be used. Handicap corrections will be based on Time on Distance.

    Protests: A competitor’s protests must be filed in writing at the regatta desk within 1 hour of their finishing the race.
    Prizes: Prizes will be awarded for first - third (Corrected time). First to finish will be recognized with boat name and course time on the Double Damned Cup perpetual trophy.

        those boarders are real squirely, hard to catch. Current is going 2 to 5 knots against, east to west. At times your going real fast.

                      Not good, there are more people looking to crew than people with boats that are willing to race em'
