Jeff Grange Viper 640 Pacific Coast Champ for 2018 - Viper 640 International Class Association

Viper 640 Pacific Coast Championships – Cabrillo Beach YC.

This years Pacific Coast Championship did not disappoint. Conditions where perfect with the typical summer Southern California sea breeze. The fleet sailed in a variety of conditions from 10 to 18 kts.  Racing was held outside in the ocean on Day One and inside the breakwater on Day Two. Both course locations made for exciting racing with lots of smiles in the Viper fleet.

Special Thanks to Mike Pentecost for putting together an excellent championship event.  The Viper Fleet looks forward to returning to Cabrillo Beach Yacht Club in the future.
