Sunday April 3rd, Race from Marathon to Key West: Winds ENE at 14-15 mph at race start, changing to East at 13 -14 by race end at Smathers Beach, Key West.
Remember that changes can occur, but all looks well at present. Do not forget to have saftey gear ready to be inspected. Required Safety equipment: (Inspections will be made) 1 CG approved PFD per crew member; 1 throw-able PFD; 1 Cell phone in water proof container; 1 - minimum tow line at least 20 feet; at least 1 portable waterproof GPS; 1 boat compass; at least 1 portable waterproof VHF Radio; Up to date Charts for the areas to be sailed; one whistle per crew member attached to personal worn equipment; one set of personal emergency flares/signals on boat and enough drinkable liquid for the duration of the race.

Formal registrations and fees are not required until registration which will take place at the Islander Resort on the pool deck Friday, April 1st, 2011 after 6PM and Saturday morning until 9:00AM. Early online filing of intent to register will determine if classes will be formed. Email intent to race to wgreen53@cfl.rr.com .

I have a different forecast- N 10-15 Saturday. Sunday too far away to tell, but it will be more right for an even better run to Key West. Even if it doesn't go all the way north on Saturday, Sunday should be a very very nice run.

Yeah, hopefully we can pick up more of the teams that were planning to do the Tybee 500. I know three tybee boats that gave verbal commitement. Having everyone staying together will also be a lot more fun.

I think my kitchen pass was revoked after Macho (due to not informing of my whereabouts until finish time), but I'd be interested in this...

It is NEVER good to cancel a race when there are people who want to do it. Forecast was lollipop. Bad precedent!

It was not my call. I got the email and talked to Warren just before it was posted. But after two years of mimimal participation, I can see why Warren made the decision. Hopefully the weather will also be a great on the new weekend and put the race back on the map.

Sailors are reporting happy with new dates. More boats indicating they will come. Islander watersports expanding to new location bayside impacting support for this race at the earlier dates. But, possibilities improve for future Keys racing. Working with Tybee management to promote next year by using their dates this year. Some Tybee boats called in to say if dates changed they would come - Hooray. Please help root out more. Hotels rates significantly improved for the Islander resort, All coordination accomplished for new dates, but, we have moved into turtle season. We love all classes, but Oceanside distance racing dictates crew of two for safety reasons. Come to the glorious Keys in May,(21 -22 May to be exact.) two legs both under 50 miles, have fun and show intent, to facilitate classes, by note to wgreen53@cfl.rr.com .
