The start of the southern California offshore season may be attributed to the very laid back, but serious, Cabrillo Offshore Series hosted by the Southwestern Yacht Club in San Diego, CA.

The first race was a 36.0nm affair that went from the San Diego Harbor start line, out around the North Coronado Island in Mexico, and return to the start/ finish line.

In the end, it was a complete domination of the fleet by J/Teams across the board, from the big silver-platers to the classic offshore racer-cruisers. Winning the eight-boat ORR Division was Rudy Hasl's J/145 Palaemon in a very competitive fleet of boats.

In the PHRF Division 2, Robert Pace's J/145 Andiamo 2 took 1st place, followed by Hasl's J/145 Palaemon in second, and completing the podium with the bronze was Mark Surber's J/125 Snoopy.

Finally, it was J/120s all over the top of the leaderboard in PHRF 3 Division. Winning was John Laun's Caper, with good friend Chuck Nichols' CC Rider taking the silver.

The Cabrillo Offshore Series consist of four races. The next race is a 73-mile race around Sugarloaf Rock in Mexico.
