1985: Open Class Final Results
The coast road was closed due to landslides so the first leg of the 1985 contest was a 62 mile loop as far into Big Sur as we could go and back to Carmel. This was a melancholy time as I figured that this might be our last contest. 90% of what we needed to know had been learned.

Twenty five years later, it just may be time to have another series of contests.
