This better not be true either. I could come and go as I wanted last year. We just had to take an immediate right leaving the marina and go past the spillway.

Damn right. Some of the cut, and clean my damn boat from all the oil and gas that gets on it.


Seriuosly - if what has been said today comes true I hope it is the last year for the race.

Beacon Cove is just not the same this year. And this might be the clincher....

"Limited entrance will be available between heats & races."

She did say this, so you will be able to get in & out. I imagine they just want to reduce the amount of traffic in the area.

Some people, who could care less about the race, may not be able to get to their boat until the time that they are closing off the enterance and to be forced to stay in the marina because BC decides to do all of this, that's bull.

Clincher is about right...

Last year they pushed it out there to allow people to come and go, I beleive. But then everyone complained they could not see, maybe they pushed it back in for race fans...

I wouldn't make too much of any of this.
They know they HAVE to take care of the residents.
I believe they will probably close outside access to the gas dock but resident boats will
be able to come and go, avoiding the course by taking a hard right at the marina entrance.
Just my opinon tho
