In Print: Classic Offshore Racing Programs

With so much information available on the Internet and our unending fixation on modern web-based technology, it's still nice to see some fine examples of old-school offshore racing memorabilia. Old offshore racing programs are not only collectible, they're just fun to look at while we reminisce about the past. That's why it was such a delight to see this thread on Serious Offshore [SOS] recently started by forum member Bobcat. If you're interested in seeing an interesting and nostalgic blast from the past, then I'd suggest you check this thread out.

Most of the programs that he and some other members have posted are from Offshore Racing's heyday, back in the 1970's and 80's. There are a number of cool program covers from races like the Key West World Championships, The Northport 200 in Michigan, the Marathon FL Challenge, Lake St. Clair races, Trump Castle World Championships and many more, including some international offshore examples from Cowes and Guernsey in Great Britain.

It's really a great thread, and I'd like to personally thank those individuals who took the time to scan and post these great old program covers. They say to know where you're going, it's always good to know where you've been; seeing these covers is a great way to get a glimpse into offshore racing's exciting past. Take a look!
