    Default Bridge to Bridge!!

    So tell me what this event was..and why it is no longer.
    I have experience organizing racing events and would like to organize a poker run or other marine event on the River/Delta.

    Yea, looks like it hasn't run in 5 years. Curious if lack of interest or?

    thats debateable..i did it once and had fun,but the Sacramento water festivel in the 80s with V8 outboard powered F1 boats was way more exciting and drew way more spectators

    Bridge to Bridge was a bad accident waiting to happen IMO, that's why I never ran any of my boats there. Up to a hundred miles per hour or so, not such a big deal, but running boats up that dogleg and shooting the bridge supports at a buck-fifty with spectator filled docks just 50' away was nuts! I'd love to see the tunnel boats come back, but I doubt it will ever happen. The closest the tunnel boats will get to us in the near future may be Washington, as Chris Fairchild and the powers that be in Champ are working to get a race up there next year.

    I doubt you could get something sanctioned like that with the potential liability. Thanks for the info.

    Default Bridge to Bridge

    Some fellow boaters performed a water show for a ouple years there. I was able to wet the spectators on the bridgew with my rooster tail. Have to say it was WAY TOO MUCH FUN, so was due to get canceled.
