2021 Laser Gorge Blowout : Columbia Gorge Racing Association

About Event

Due to the unfavorable forecast, the Blowout has been cancelled

Windy, wavy, white knuckle, 18-mile downwinder from Cascade Locks to Hood River. Should be on every Laser sailor's bucket list. Please note: this event is for experienced sailors who are comfortable in extreme conditions. Starters will be limited to the first 30 entries (wait list encouraged; expect race day dropouts).

Due to the nature of nature, online fee payment is not available for this event. Entry fees may be paid by cash, check or credit card at check-in at the CGRA Race Office on July 30.

The entry fee for CGRA Intermediate and Pro members is only $20 – a savings of $25! Enough to replace that wind vane that will go missing after your third capsize! Or, if you're not a CGRA member yet, enough to pay up to half your joining fee (join CGRA here).

All the usual COVID-19 precautions, restrictions, and contingencies will apply, in accordance with local, state, and federal regulations in effect at the time of the event. CGRA requires all regatta participants, including skippers, crews, and volunteers, to comply with all guidelines as specified in the Covid-19 Regatta Guidelines and sign and return the Assumption of Risk & Waiver of Liability Relating to Coronavirus/Covid-19 form to susan@cgra.org as a condition of entry (both documents available on the event website).
