They switched either a dual seat kayak or two kayaks for that section and are allowed to have someone transport the catamaran back to the gulf side where they will meet them in (I think) Cedar Key.

Alan is in a class where he carries his boat for the entire navigation in ocean, river, and land.

Those guys are only about 5 miles apart now.

They are both on an "Old aluminum canoe". Crazy Russian is in for the long haul.

It looks like Larry / Russian stopped at a restaurant this evening that probably will make a sweet overnight stop at Treasure Camp on the Suwannee. SoS is about 9 miles behind and still moving at about 3 knots in the darkness. A camp worthy (non-muck) river bank are probably getting pretty few and far in between between from where these guys to the coast.

Sos got around them at some point in the night and the guys are all back underway. It looks like they might even be in sight of each other as the sun comes up this morning!

SOS went further into the night and pulled ashore just after passing and around the bend from where LRock and crazy russian pulled up. They were scheduled to swap from the canoe to the catamaran at Fanning Springs. That might have hurt them with the narrow Suwannee.

Sos heading south about 100 miles from the finish. He'll need a little more speed to finish today (currently reported to be making 2 knots). The forecast is for breeze but it looks like the forecast is a little bit wrong...no breeze showing up at the weather stations at the moment. Lrock is currently at the Cedar Key checkpoint on the beach - undoubtedly to be back underway soon (possibly waiting for breeze, maybe?).

They went a bit further than planned before switching to the catamaran. Choosing to get the distance before night and put the boat back together during the night to get a fresh start in the morning.

Right now they are making good time and catching up with SOS and should be leading again soon. They look like they are within eyesight of each other.

LRock and CazyRussian finished at 6:35AM this morning. SOS stopped for some sleep and is about 35 mi from the finish.

Per SandyBottom (SoS's mother who is also an avid and accomplished adventure racer) talking about the stop at Cedar Key:
"Another touch and go arriving about 50 min after SOS, but with quick run to the grocery so CR can buy a box of vino and cigarettes. CR says LR won't let him sleep."

Well done, guys. A terrific accomplishment!

Those racks are cool... would be even cooler if you could tie a hammock between the bars and sleep on the windward side off-watch...

BTW, SOS (Alan) broke the single handed record by about a day and set a new mark at 18 days 11 hours 24 minutes for the 1200mile trip around Florida. That's made even more impressive that he did it in a boat he designed and self built for the purpose. Congrats Alan!
