Alright, 'tis the season. Who is going to race in Tybee this year?
4 Team Velocity Sailing boats will be registering this week. That brings the entries up to 7. Rumor has it that a boat whore in FL with a shaved head will be signing up before too long as well (f18). Will the Sonnenklar empire post a 3rd boat?

Who is interested in doing the race? How can we help make it a reality for you?

Considering, trying. Haven't gotten approval on the family front, and work is going to be real crazy about that time this year. Still, for now there is hope...

If anyone wants a fat boy crew to do the race I could fly in. But at 6'1" 240 lbs I'd need to be paired up with a small skipper.

I'd love to crew also, (I can drive equally as well). Lots of offshore experience (Ruff riders about a dozen times, Great Texas 300- 5 times, TX two step, etc.), lots of F18, I20 experience also. I'm at 155#'s, am in great shape (currently a msters swimmer), and have $$. Send me a PM if intersted.

I'm also available to crew or skipper, took 7th last year as skipper of N20 USA 1001. Have $$ and a top notch ground crew lined up, just need a boat.

So, what's the latest? Is this race going to happen with 7 boats? What's Chuck's deadline for his decision? I'm suprised to not see more F18's doing this race besides one, especially after the comment at the 09 awards about the race going to F18.

Lee,

Unfortunately, the race doesn't look like it'll have enough entries this year to go forward. I've heard that the magic number is 12 entries to make it happen, and I just don't see that happening without a bunch of F18's and some regulars signing up.

So, no interest from Mr. Heemskirk or JC this year? I really hate the thought of this race not happening, regardless if I come to do it or not.

If someone's got a boat to charter I've got money, sailing crew and ground crew ready to go.

www.tybee500.com

To the Tybee 500 Fleet, its staff and supporters:

Judi and I would like to extend our gratitude and respect to everyone for the years of dedication and effort. On behalf of the entire Tybee 500 administrative team, THANK-YOU ALL!

The last couple of years have been a challenge as tough economic times have required us all to tighten our belts and choose carefully where our hard earned money and vacation time is spent. With that reality in mind, I have made the decision to postpone the Tybee 500 until May 2012. I will be contacting the checkpoints to inform them of this announcement.

The race organizers and sponsors will plan again to set a start line for the Tybee 500 to push off the beach in South Florida and challenge the elements on a journey North to the finish line on Tybee Island, GA. This hiatus will allow the Tybee Sailing Association and sailing teams time to consolidate resources and personnel, and for us to consider other fleets that may wish to participate.

For those teams that did post their pre-registration, this announcement is being made early enough so that any plans and bookings can be changed as to avoid any loss of reservations payments and to make plans in other areas of interest for this year. I make this suggestion also for the teams that had planned for this year's race and other teams, to put the expenses they would have used this year aside, to save and add to it in preparation for 2012.

That's our plan!

We remain dedicated to you and this race along with the tradition of off-the-beach catamaran distance racing along the Atlantic Coast, and we hope you'll join us in 2012 for the next chapter in this adventure.

You are all welcome to contact us as you wish and we hope everyone will continue to visit our website (www.tybee500.com) for updates and plans for 2012 Tybee 500. The Tybee 500 website will be the only site where official news, information and announcements will be posted first as we plan for 2012.

Best Regards and fly a hull!

Chuck & Judi Bargeron
Team Tybee Island Sailing Association

Thanks David. Looks like Chuck posted it early today. I guess word travels faster in the forums.

Is there any interest in a substitute distance race. Tybee dates conflicted with a critical business commitment for me, but I would like to compete in a multi-day race week of 5/9 or 5/23 if possible. Any ideas?

Really sad. Seriously, lets not allow this to be the death of Tybee. Next year I hope to see 20+ boats signed up again.

Hey Pete,

its not multi-day, but theres the Mug race in early May that will give you a taste of distance racing. Its a pretty awesome race from what I'm told.
