2004 OFFSHORE 160
Friday, July 16, 2004
Co-sponsored by Goat Island Yacht Club Ltd. and Newport Yacht Club
The date for the start of the 2004 Offshore 160 is Friday, July 16th. The biennial Offshore 160+, held in the off-year from the Bermuda ONE-TWO, is a 160+-mile qualifier for the ONE-TWO. It is a low-keyed, bare-bones event designed to potentially get new skippers' singlehanded qualifying passage out of the way in the off-year, and to provide past competitors with a long-distance racing "fix."
