Big Pimpin'

the end is nigh

Futurists predict the end of the world in 2012.  Border Run organizers are taking no chances. In 2011, the Border Run became the largest point to point race on the West Coast.  For 2012, organizers are going all out so sailors can sail and party like it’s their last.  So what’s new?

Sponsored by Ullman Sails and outfitted by Pirates Lair, the Border Run has a new date,  Saturday, March 10th 2012.  Why?  Reasons include a full moon, a chance for more wind, a feeder race for the NOOD, a tune up for the Newport to Cabo race and 6 weeks before the N2E so sailors can race both.

To appreciate being ‘alive’, Border Run sailors can experience the largest single-start in the USA.  All classes will start at 11 a.m. GPS time on one start line separated into three classes…the 14-mile Sprint course to Dana Point, the 70-mile Short course to San Diego and the 90-mile Long course around the island of Coronado del Norte to San Diego. You don’t want to miss it.

Sign up by December 15th 2011 and save money, get cool stuff and a chance to win a $1,200 SUP by BORD or GoPro video cam. Check website for details.

More News: Dana Point Yacht Club is onboard to finish the Sprint course to Dana Point. The San Diego Trophy party will be at Silver Gate Yacht Club with plenty of parking and catered by Fiddlers Green. Most importantly, Border Run sailors can earn prizes by raising money for three charity. These charities are dedicated to preserving our oceans,  promoting the sport of sailing and fighting blood cancers including skin cancer.

The Border Run Team consists of XS Racing, South Shore Yacht Club (the Organizing Authority) and Dana Point Yacht Club. The Border Run is part of the 2012 Ullman Sails Offshore Championship Series.  For more details go to or call 800-366-8584.
