I'm fitting this race and a re-run of the Sydney Auckland tall ship race around the forthcoming sailonline world race. I pencilled in the tall ship race in November, but can easily switch these.
Welcome to the Gray Whale Migration Race 2014 - please feel free to add commentary, anecdotes or links to information here about gray whales (or whales in general)!

6 October - comments from chat:

Too bad the mark at Rose Spit is not further into the Strait. Be nice to get back outside into the wind after rounding. IRL if you cut that corner close you'll run aground.

Also IRL there is a strait betweem Graham Is and Moresby Is. There is a narrow section in the middle of that passage that is probably like Deception Pass when the tides run through.
What Wiki has to say about Cape Blanco
Our 2016 Autumn Migration is coming to a close but hopefully we'll be back soon to Isla Magdalena - perhaps even for a return, Spring race, back up to the feeding grounds!
