Oakcliff is hosting the US Match Racing Championships. We scheduled the rain to stop in time for practice this afternoon and requested good winds and sunny skies for racing Friday through Sunday.

We have limited spectator spots on our lobster boat, Tashtego every day but Sunday seems to be the most popular. Email Matt at to reserve your spot; be on site at 10am and we'll get you out to watch racing.

Can't make it in person? Once again, T2PTV will provide daily wrap-ups and our in-house team will post our rather unique 'raw live' coverage on Oakcliff's Facebook page.

The line up of skippers include: Newly minted World #1, Chris Poole, who is sailing with graduate Chris Kennedy, Alfonzo Gracia-Bringas, Ruairi Finnegan, left-coast sailor Jeffery Petersen, Peter Holz from Chicago, Pearson Potts and his Guardians of the Monohull team, Patrick Shanahan, The Waterfront Center's, Cormac Murphy, Nicole Breault with much of Dave Perry's Oakcliff International winning team, and Janel Zarkowsky the reigning USWMRC champ.

Harvest Regatta - Oct 15

Don't miss this fun pursuit race with pumpkin prizes along the race course. You never know who is going to be in costume or what the weather will deliver, but we do know that there will be a fun party at the end. We also have some VIPS rumored to be on site: Gary Jobson, David Pedrick and many others from the America 3 team, including the legendary Dianimal.

Speaking of party - the massive Oyster Fest is being held the same weekend. There will be an updated train schedule to accommodate the OysterFest crowd; we will send to all competitors as soon as we have it.
