With around 40 Viper 640s expected at Alamitos Bay Yacht Club for Viper North Americans Sept. 3-6, a few east coast boats didn’t want to let 2,800 miles come in between them and a good time. A truck, some rum, a forklift and a professional driver later, 5 boats are headed west for fun in the sun with a bunch of known Anarchists and many other lurkers, including Event Chair and regular poster Timbo. 4 Vipers are frequently shipped in containers on canting racks, but this is the first known 5+ Viper rig to attend a regatta.
It would have been a 6-boat setup, but defending champion Jason Carroll and his Argo team couldn’t make the trip at the last minute, so the field is wide open for the west coast’s largest Viper gathering to date among a growing SoCal Fleet. Expect daily updates and high quality racing and fun.
