Title: Delta Ditch Run 2022--Richmond to Stockton
Post by: Mike Josselyn on May 06, 2022, 03:54:24 PM
Checking in to see if any other U20s are planning on doing the Delta Ditch Run on June 11th.  We used to have a number of U20s racing but participation has declined over the past several years to just one boat.  The 67 mile downwind race from Richmond CA to Stockton CA is a great event for U20s as it is 90% downwind with many opportunities for fast planing runs.  Looking for some excitement and a long distance race...this will be your best opportunity--none other that I know of in the country.  Great party afterwards.

If interested, I can explain the logistics, launching, and transportation issues.

Peabody is planning to race again this year, and we're already familiar with logistics. Looking forward to finishing this race - we dismasted at high speed in 2015.

How did it go this year.  Heard it was a windy day so must have been fast.

Looks awesome Donna! corrected time says 7.5 hours for 65 miles, that would be about an average of 8.7 knots. That's a lot of smiles.
