    Racers will stage at the west marina entrance gates and will be led down the channel in a paced straight line rolling start passing directly in front of the scoring/committee gazebo dock.

    The course around Browns Island is 5.2 miles in length. (I checked it 14 times) The pass down New York Slough will bring them in close proximity to the committee / scoring dock. If the river is calm the first leg should take about an hour and a half for all skis to complete.

    Special note –
    The Pittsburg High School marching band is holding a fundraiser at the Seafood Festival on Sunday, September 13th. They are raising money to send the band to New York to participate in the 2010 Macy’s New Years Day parade. They are selling small “rubber ducks” at $5 each that will “race” at 2:30pm in front of the start dock we will be using for course racing…

    I am looking for 2 standup or sitdown racers who are willing to volunteer their ski to run at idle for a few minutes during the race to create a current for the ducks to follow. In return, I will fill your skis up at the marina fuel docks.

    This is a great cause for a great group of kids, and I appreciate any volunteers who can help make this a memorable event for all involved. Kurt Knollenberg will be announcing the play by play duck action as it happens – and the best part? The winning duck owner will win a fully restored 1968 Chevy El Camino!! Ducks can be purchased all the way up to 10 minutes before the race so if you’re in the mood to get “ducky with it” :shocked1:
    let me know and I’ll hook you up with the donation people.

    Launching –
    This year we are fortunate to have use of the Vee Jay Marine concrete launch ramp located in the west basin of the marina. We will have the “Quad Squad” on duty to make things move along a little more quickly but I have to respectfully ask you to abide by the NO WAKE zone in the marina basin. There are many live-a-board tenants in the marina and the “Slow is Pro” practice will ensure we are invited back again next year.

    The ramp closes at 5pm sharp on Saturday – possibly 6pm on Sunday, so make sure you keep an eye on the clock following your last race of the day!

    VEE JAY MARINE SERVICES
    6 Bayside Dr
    Pittsburg, CA 94565

    Tow vehicle and Trailer parking will be at Riverview park just as it was last year. Limited RV parking for staff and racers is available at Riverview. Please contact me if staying in an RV.

    The City is again supplying a barge to transport your gear, pop ups, and fuel etc to the pit dock.

    Racers and crew access the sit for free from the water. Gear pick up will be at the Vee Jays ramp.I have approximately 100 VIP passes to distribute to immediate family and friends. If you have other people coming to watch you race – admission to the event is $7.00 (kids 6 and under are free)

    In the morning and afternoons of both days, I will have a shuttle van running from Riverview park and Vee Jays marine to the front gate of the festival which is in close proximity to the scoring and announcing dock.

    Any questions, please email or call me.
    As I remember things I forgot to list – I will post them here, but for now I think this covers most the weekend.

    PLEASE take a minute and download the entry form from the www.diablojsa.com website, fill it out, and get it back to me.
    It takes 3-5 seconds to download, 2 minutes to fill out the form, 3-5 seconds to email it back to me and you’ll get a nice position on the start dock! Less than 5 minutes and you make things a whole lot easier for us on race day. Thank you for your help!

    I will post the course diagrams for the enduro, closed course, and event site later today.Thank you for your interest, and I’ve got 2 words for you all…
    LETS RACE!!!

    Stay safe over the Labor Day Weekend– see you on race day.

    I gotta say, This course was as tough or tougher than the LB2CAT on a bad day!! Anyone disagree? You had several miles of WOT with a few mild boat rollers then ran into a mess for a few miles. The thing that makes this course tough & a mental trip was you knew you had to hit that washing machine mess 20 times!!! Sean Conner's ski was out of control!! He was the fastest one there that day & he handled the chop well. Lee Phan was a madman on the RXP handling his buisness through that sloppy mess without getting launched! I was amazed!! Here's a 2 minute clip of the 1st lap of the race of the flat to rough transition that we had to endure 20 times & it got worse in some spots as the race went on.

    Lake Ozarks my A$$, Lake Ozarks chop is like a ripple created by you in a bathtub playing with your rubber duckie......and God knows what else your playing with aside from your rubber duckie. "US", MEN.....RIDE and Play in Neptune's Playground, where there's never a same day, same time, same condition ........on any given moment........as the saying goes.."LIVE THE MOMENT"
