The Season Opener

This popular contest kicks off the series. Run in the sheltered waters of San Pedro Bay, this contest offers a fine opportunity to "dust the cobwebs off the old mill" on this relatively short warm-up contest. Trophies are awarded at a well-attended banquet at the Long Beach Yacht Club on Saturday night. This is an excellent time to get started by joining with other log racers as the year gets under way.
