The Race will be a distance race, stopping each night at a different location encompassing a distance of approximately 300 Statute miles. There will be 4 legs to the race. The overnight locations are planned and expected to be:

May 18, 2014 - Arrive and setup, Islander Resort, mm82.1, Overseas Highway, Islamorada, FL.
Race Day 1, May 19 – Islamorada, FL to Key Biscayne;
Race Day 2, May 20 – Key Biscayne to Singer Island;
Race Day 3, May 21 – Singer Island to Vero Beach, FL;
Race Day 4, May 22 – Vero Beach FL to Cocoa Beach, FL .
These are currently expected stopping locations which may change slightly based upon detailed planning currently in work. (Negotiations on going with Hotels and Cities)

If this goes well, we are certainly further considering distances 500-1000 starting next year, BUT WE MUST GET A FIRST RACE OFF THE GROUND AND SUCCESSFUL AND THIS MEANS YOU SAILING WITH US!!!!!

The last segment (Vero Beach to Cocoa Beach) will have a separate start for boats with Hobie 16 or faster portsmouth rating. Details to be published soon.

The NOR and Registration form can be found on: www.Florida300.com

The Florida 300 cleared a major hurtle yesterday. We needed permission to land the boats on the Key Biscayne beach which is the first leg of the race. Warren Greene met with the Key Biscayne Village Council to request a variance and it was granted unanimously.

Getting close to finalizing the Singer Island stop. The mayor of Palm Beach Shores is a sailing enthusiast and looking forward to the event. A letter has already been drafted and will be presented to the village council on Monday March 17th.

Below is a reconnaissance aerial video I put together with info on the stop. I plan on putting together similar for each stop to help promote the race.
http://youtu.be/wyXojb3Twoo

I think we are past all of the major logistical hurdles but we need entries in. Without entries, all the work we have done is for nothing. The deadline of March 15th is fast approaching and we only have one of the ten official entries needed. We have nine firm verbal commitments but unless those are turned into official entries, the race won't happen.

Just got this email from Warren Green:
We are fast approaching a do or die for the Florida 300. We have all agreed: There must be 10 boats registered and committed with a deposit of $100 by March 15th or there will be no race. We feel sure of 8 now. There are so many things left to do and we need registrations. Our formal and legal structure is required to get the insurance, and we will not commit to this without sailor commitments. We are ready to go but need registrations. Our new corporation will be “Sail Series promotions Inc”, if no complications. The SI is in preparation, the committee is at work. Our dates are May 19-22, 2014. Our locations are secured. Our web site to get forms and see the NOR is www.florida300.com We start at the Islander resort in the Florida Keys and end in Cocoa Beach.

We now have 12 teams with deposits in and the race is on!
We will close at 20 teams. Names and teams to be released on florida300.com

Our new corporation will be “Sail Series Promotions Inc”, if no complications. The SI is in preparation, the committee is at work. Our dates are May 19-22, 2014. Our locations are secured. We start at the Islander resort in the Florida Keys and end in Cocoa Beach.

The last leg of the Florida 300 will be deemed the "dogfight" and is a one day Vero to Cocoa Beach 50 mile run, with any 16 ft to 22 ft catamaran that would like to try out a leg of this race. The boats that join in will be sent off earlier, and race to cocoa with the rest of the Florida 300 racers. We have a great area to put in at Vero and pull out in cocoa, and all will be invited to the rib feat dinner in Cocoa that night.

It was a great pic. We look forward to seeing you on the line for next year.

Rick, can you add the Florida 300 to your schedule for distance racing?

I was going through some old Tybee and Worrell videos and noticed a lot of the sailors doing this years Florida 300 were in them. I am going to try to compile stats on how many Tybee 500's and Worrell 1000's the Florida 300 sailors have between them.

If any of this years sailors see this, can you send the info to craig@sailseries.com

Man you know how it can get out there. You'll be hauling butt then all of a sudden everything goes into slow mo.

I can only imagine the pain caused by going from foiling to displacement mode that quickly.
