The Delta Ditch Run is Saturday, June 12th. Race info is here: http://www.stocktonsc.org/ditch/index.html

Dan DeLave did a cool Google Earth flyover for last year's run. http://vimeo.com/4532709

Photos from last year: viewtopic.php?f=37&t=12520

It's 72 miles of flat water, mostly downwind action. You start in Richmond and finish in Stockton. There are already several F18s signed up with others that I know are coming. They are starting us an hour earlier (10:30 for our start) this year so we can finish a little earlier. Last year it was 5:30-6:00 hours. 65 degrees when you start in Richmond and 85-90 when you finish in Stockton.

The Glasers won last year by about 30 seconds after 72 miles and who knows how many jibes. Good times- come out if you can.

I am considering joining the fun in my Getaway.

Is that a bad idea?

Also where can I find the logistics on trailering etc.

Getaway ?

Maybe with a spin. It was done on a wave spin last year. 12 hours. You rig at richmond, then drive your trailer to stockton and at 6 am there is a bus from stockton to richmond.

Maybe see if the organizers can go back to back with the S.F. NOOD for 2011.

I think a bunch of us pale skinned rum drinkers from the Northwest could be convinced to make a double weekend of it. 8)

I am going to make the trek in a hobie 18. Does anyone know where I can find the phrf rating for the boat. The online application is asking for it. I am running a spinaker and wings if that makes any difference. Any help is appreciated. I did some looking on line and am just going in circles. Thanks,

Anyone need crew for the Ditch. Chris from Socal is looking to crew. He ran with me last year good crew and also a good C-class skipper. Or you may be able to tow his boat up and run the C-class.

Just the standard Hobie chute for the 18. It came with the boat when I bought it so I don't know much more than that.
