Pure Pleasure Boat Racing!
The rebirth of Classic Outboard Runabout (COR) boat racing is alive and well. We completed seven circle boat races (Parker Thanksgiving Regatta, Lake Ming Shootout, Parker Spring Classic, Folsom Big Wake Weekend, Long Beach Sprint Nationals, Salt Springs, and the Parker Enduro 336 (as a Special Event) during the 2013 season.
The Thanksgiving Regatta in Parker Arizona was the COR 2013 opener. Our first COR 2.0 Winter Nationals at Lake Ming was a big success. The final 2013 COR race was on Sept 14 - 15, 2013 at Salt Springs in Cooperopolis, CA where we had seven boats show up and all boats finished strong.
