    OPC racing in the 70's

    Found some old race pics from what I think was a 1974 race in Kingston, NY. Quality is not too good, pics probably taken with an instamatic, and scanned with an iphone app.

    Loved the FE and FJ class, we never raced but owned several similar boats where I grew up in LI, NY.

    Very cool. Here's my 1976 Ventura II with a 1974 1500E, later repowered with a 1976 Black Max 175.

    Yes...the two pics of the Shooting Star are my dad in Miami 1962...he won and got a 5' trophy...taller than me at the time...that will be mine some day. Did you notice the stylish life "vest"? Hard to believe they were legal then....when did they change to the regular orange ones? I started racing in 68-69 and I had the orange one then. My dad had one in 67 also.
