The second tourstop of the 2013 AWT tour was held at Pistol River State Park, Oregon, US West Coast is on. The event is set to run at “the Rock” in the Pistol River State Park or if conditions warrant, in front of the Beachcomber in Gold Beach. The main spot “the Rock” is located at the rivermouth of the Pistol river surrounded by a beautiful green environment with gras and conifers. Waves from the Pacific Ocean break over sandbanks. On the water the waves are framed by massive rocky cliffs at both sides of the bay. Just an gorgeous spot. And a bit of history: The river supposedly got its name when a militia soldier lost his pistol in the river during the infamous Rogue River Indian War. In March of 1856, a decisive battle was fought here.
This time we saw the battle of the best sailors from the states. And in the end a Maui resident from the Carribean took the win.
