Doesn't look that out of whack because it depends a lot on the CDA of each position, the differences in the bikes, the pacing of the event and how much/little you both suck. My guess based on that limited data is that your position is bad and his is ok, and he did those hills (and the descent?) better. Sure, if you put your 310 avg watts into a .220 cda, or even an average cda, you'd go fast, but that doesn't mean you will be putting out 310 when you actually get in that position.
Who ran better?
Also his power meter could be a lot more accurate than the P1s. So you are likely seeing an inflated value there.
I'm biased, but I'd love to have something in the PNW, June-Sep. I'm still surprised WTC hasn't bought Pacific Crest and turned it into Bend 70.3, added a pro race, cancel the pro race, and cancel the entire race two years later. Classic WTC move.
I enjoyed Lake Stevens 70.3, I wish that was still around. There are lots of great locations in Oregon/Wash and not much competition.
