Seriously??? It takes AT LEAST 30 boats to be anything but a cakewalk. 60+ is most exciting.

It can be plenty exciting with just 10... provided all 10 know how to start smile
So we are up to 21 boats! Chris Prentice, Anthony Boueilh are also supposedly coming... I'm hoping I can talk Jim Zelmer into coming, that'd be 24... I'm not sure if Eric Witte is sailing a viper or an F18 but he is definitely sailing... looking pretty good!!!!!

Matt, not sure if you want to wait, but I get in to Miami at 7:30 on Thursday.

Anyone else arriving around then and interested in sharing a ride?

Well, when Rick sets up his start line about 25' wide, it does get interesting smile

I'm heading out tomorrow morning. I was hoping to get to at least Georgia before quitting for the night, but we're in the middle of getting rain/sleet/snow. I might not be able to take off too early.


I'm boatless.

Good god. I'm getting 10mpg with the triple stack. I gotta fill every 300 miles, at $100 a pop I'm gonna probably burn up $1300 in fuel. Yikes!

Welcome to my life.... we budgeted for 7mpg and were psyched when we got 9... but my truck only has a 18 gallon tank... lots of gas stops.

That sucks. I've got a 34 gallon tank, but normally get 15-17 with one boat.

Get behind a box truck and get real close. Drafting will net you 2-5 mpg, perhaps more.

You are looking at it wrong. You are getting 30mpg per boat!

My crew's flight gets in at 7:45. Maybe ya'll can hook up. Oh, and please tell him I'll have the boat rigged and polished, and the beer iced down for him . . .

I believe Tad said he "retired from competitive sailing" so if you want to race him you can't be competitive. Just don't bet him anything( maybe that's what's too competitive)...he has a problem paying up.
