OC6 races

CLX 2024 use two OC6 courses: a 12-mile course for open and women’s teams and a 9-mile course for mixed teams. Both courses present teams with a range of wind and water conditions on Cayuga Lake. Teams proceed north across the lake (which angles from the southeast to the northwest) then turn and head back directly west crossing the lake again. Near the western shore, boats on the 9-mile course will turn and take a southeasterly path back down the lake to the start/finish point. Boats on the 12-mile course will make the same turn but take a long, more easterly route to a third buoy on the northern/eastern side of the lake, passing to the north and within view of Taughannock State Park. At that buoy, they will turn and race back to across the lake to the finish. Depending on the conditions and wind direction, we may reverse the direction of the race on the course – ideally to make the long race leg a downwinder!  

All races are part of the 2024 ECORA (East Coast Outrigger Racing Association) OC6 Point Series. Three races are scheduled: open, women’s, and mixed, with teams competing in different divisions based on boat and age. Teams from ECORA member clubs earn points based on their place and division

All teams are welcome, however, and encouraged to compete for our awesome CLX awards!

Race Divisions are determined by:

  • OC6 Open, OC6 Women, OC6 Mixed
  • Age: Open and Masters* (40+)
  • Boat: Spec (320+ lbs) and Unlimited (<320lbs)

* teams are classified as Masters if all members are 40+.

For teams unable to bring club OC6s, we will assist with rentals and/or boat loans from other clubs on a first-come, first-serve basis. So if you need a boat, contact us and register early!
