Just drove back from Newport this weekend, smooth sailing from I-95 (CT) -> 87 -> 287 -> Garden State Parkway -> I-95/NJ Turnpike -> 195 -> 295 and then south across the Delaware memorial bridge. This is the most reasonable route with the tolls. If you can avoid NJ, they are doing construction on the NJ turnpike. Alternate route is the Garden State Parkway -> 195 -> 295.

My suggestion is to travel on a weekday, summer weekends I-95 in CT isn't pleasant, and unfortunately without a trailer can't jump on the Merrit Parkway.

Alternative is to fly from BWI to Providence for under $100 each way.

We were in the same situation as Jeff, no boat and charter price was too much to justify. The current party information is also a little bit weak (Hot Dogs?). We decided to do Newport to Bermuda on a big boat instead, though the F16 sailing will be more fun!

We have a club member on a Viper who needs crew or a driver, expenses paid. PM me if interested.

That's the kind of outside the box thinking this sport needs. Isn't that how it was done in the 80's, maybe that's why the numbers were so good. If memory serves Crocket was a decent H16 sailor before he got into offshore powerboat racing.

Any guess (I'm too lazy to look it up) what boat Crockett lived on with Elvis?

Good times....

From http://miamivice.wikia.com/wiki/St._Vitus_Dance

The St. Vitus Dance is a sailing yacht and home of James "Sonny" Crockett. Moored in Miami's luxurious Miamarina (now known as Bayside Marketplace), the sailboat rarely seemed to leave its berth, acting more as a floating apartment than a means of transport or recreation. Such an apparently wasteful means of living was very befitting of Crockett's wealthy, drug-dealing undercover personality, although the yacht also provided a convenient means of escaping the city to the relative safety of the open ocean if necessary.

The St. Vitus was portrayed by three different yachts during the course of the show's five seasons. In the pilot episode, Crockett lived on a Cabo Rico 38 sailboat, which changed to an Endeavour 40 once the show was picked up as a series. At the start of Season 2, the boat changed to a larger Endeavour 42, although some footage of the Endeavour 40 was still used in some episodes (likely stock footage filmed during Season 1). By Season 3, the Endeavour 42 was the only boat seen, and would remain so for the rest of the series. It was never stated on the show if these boats were supposed to be the same yacht, or whether they were supposed to be three different vessels each christened the St. Vitus Dance -- however, the use of both the 40 and the 42 during Season 2 implies the former.

further down that page.... sweet. I think I still have that game.

NotesEdit
Crockett's yacht appears as the "Marquis" sailboat in the video games Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, both of which were heavily inspired by Miami Vice and can be seen as homages to the show.

Just registered...Timbo, you may want to check with Daniel on your sail number as I'm pretty sure I've got 777 registered with the F16 organization. B!tches.

There's three 777 sail numbers on F16's that I can think of. Easy fix, roshambo for who has to add an "X" made out of electrical tape.

26 six boats currently registered. Four singlehanded. Anyone know how that stacks up against previous F16 World Championships? Turn out, and number of singlehanded boats?

Now, why would you do that?

Also, Andi and I will be sailing a chartered Falcon, I have no idea what the sail number will be, but I doubt it will be (my) 777

And how old do you have to be to race in the "Masters" group? 55? 60? 65?

I've got a reservation for a home 4.5 mi from the race site. 3 rooms with 2 twins in each plus a futon.

Should be pretty reasonable if we get 6 people (I've already got two).

PM me if interested.

I'm in there, for Seriously Confused!

Even though I'm well over 50, I don't think I'm a "Master"...

so I must be seriously confused.

In fact, the name of my next boat will be, "Sticky, broke, and confused!"

We have a combined F18/F16 class for the Wickford Regatta coming up this weekend in Wickford, RI. Currently 17 boats registered, mostly 18s but at least a few 16s. Great event if anyone can make it.
