Thank's for plugging ORCA, but most of the boats doing these events aren't ORCA
member so there performance isn't part of the matrix so they don't really have
fair ORCA ratings.
Any idea on how to fix this?
I'm still planning to come up for the Milt Ingram. Next year we should add these
races and maybe 2 more to the ORCA calindar so we include Ventura county.
> Ventura county is north west of Los Angeles, and includes Channel
> Islands Harbor in Oxnard, and Ventura Harbor in Ventura (new home of
> team Oracle America's Cup team). Santa Barbara Harbor is next in line,
> further north in Santa Barbara county.
> Last year Range Rover sponsored a series of 3 races.
> There were ORCA trophies for each race, as well as a series trophy.
> They are doing the same again this year. The three races are:
> 1. the Hardway Race on May 19th. Santa Barbara to Ventura, taking Santa
> Cruz island to port.
> 2. the Milt Ingram Trophy Race is July 21st. Ventura to Ventura, Grace
> oil platform to port, Anacapa island to port.
> 3. the Tri-point Ocean Race is August 25th. Gina oil platform to
> starboard, Anacapa island to starboard.
