We have added 3 MYC youth teams, thanks to Coach Leandro for the participation. Entries are at 15 , only 5 spots left, we are appealing to the people out there that have N 17s to join in the fun after the grueling Olympic competition, come on out and enjoy 385 miles of coastal racing with a party at every stop.

Four entry spots left for this years Florida 300, and for those of you who would like to just sail one leg of this race to try it out, there are 2 opportunities.
1. The Dog Fight is a 45 mile run from ,Vero Beach to Cocoa Beach on Friday the 20th of May. This is a fun and fast run.
And for those of you looking for a bit more challenge......
2. The Spacecoast Challenge, a 65 mile romp around Cape Canaveral, one of my favorite sails of our east coast. This is the last leg of the Florida 300 and then we will have our Ocean Deck party and Trophy presentation.
Hope to see you there!!

Team Cyberspeed officially entered in the Florida 300 catamaran race. The race goes from Islamorada, Florida to Daytona Beach, Florida on May 17-21. After stepping down from organizing sailboat races this year, I decided to race the Florida 300 which I helped organize and run the last two years.

Rob Behrend has had some health issues and doesn't want to chance his health getting worse, so Mark Herendeen has stepped up to the plate and will be sailing with me. I am sure if needed, Rob would be willing to step in on certain legs and will be doing the Miami Key Largo portion of the run down to Islamorada from Singer Island where the boat lives. He and I have done thousands of miles on the boat and he knows every line and bolt on the boat.

Mark and I have competed against each other since the 2003 Hogsbreath 100 when only nine of about 20 boats finished due to a major storm that hit shortly after the race started. Ironically that was the first race that Rob and I sailed together. Mark and I have never been on a boat together but we have discussed the possibility many times over the years. Mark's past accolades include completing one Worrell 1000, three Tybee 500's and the inaugural Florida 300.

Mike Shappell will be the team manager for the race. Mike has always been a great friend, fellow sailor and has helped me with all of the past upgrades and maintenance work on the Supercat 20 at his shop dubbed "The Man Shed". Between he and Rob, the boat is up for the challenge.

A special thanks also goes out to Dennis Green for stepping in and taking over some of my duties and doing such a superb job on sponsorship for this years race. Another special thank you goes out to Dave Calvert and Calvert Sails for working with me to put a new set of Calvert designed sails on the boat for the race.

We are working on lots of stuff to bring the race to the spectators. We are planning to stream live video from the boat of the starts and periodic updates throughout the race. Both Mark and I will also be sporting new helmet cameras to get a first person view of what goes on during a race.

We are relaunching www.TeamCyberspeed.com. I decided to start from scratch and move over the archived information over time to expedite production and focus it more on the Florida 300. So be patient as I go through the old info and bring it over. A full media release is coming soon.

We are also looking for partners. You can either help sponsor the sails which will stay on after the race or just the race which will still offer sponsorship on the sails during the race. We can also include special team building sailing sessions if any companies are interested. Please check out the new website and contact me if you have any questions or want to become a partner!

We're now a week out from the start and it's time to peak at the forecast. Looks like a typical SE/ESE day building after lunch. So we all know what an F18 will do 3 sail reaching, but what's the intell on those Carbon 20s. How well do they spin reach?

You will have to talk with Kirk about that, Steve and Jay haven't sailed the carbon 20 with 3 sails yet. Their will be many interesting story lines this year.....
How fast will the Dutch Rockerz be???
How fast are the youth sailors going to be???
Will Steve and Jay figure the boat out in time to push or pass Kirk and Tom
How fast is the Frankenstein Tornado???
Where is Todd????😎
Who wants to go St Pete to Daytona Next Year??
Who's going to have the best video clip?
We will have unprecedented coverage this year, with Craig and his helmet cams, Nick and his drone and Damon and his Camera.
Should be a blast.
Wish more were here, so please tune in this is going to be EPIC!!!!

I like Dennis' comment about St. Pete to Daytona, although Marco-Long Key leg is pretty desolate and inaccessable for ground-crew. Lots of banjo music out there.

Jake is familiar with this area. Beautiful sailing but man, "U on U own"

The thought is to put Larrys boat, the big Catana as a midway checkpoint, between Marco and channel 5 bridge, this is about a 105 mile leg, and sometimes a real test.
This race would be 7 or 8 legs and would require a true early commitment.
I have already talked to several sponsors for the early legs and there is lots of interest.
Just a point of discussion while we race to Daytona this year.
Daytona's Ocean Deck is with us for the future races with a big commitment. Just wait till the end of this years race.

If it's any help, the Tampa/Key West "Bone Island" big boat regatta is this week (May 12 - 16), so maybe your St. Pete race could run through that fleet and just turn left at Marco...

And you could get ground crew at Goodland, Everglades City, Cape Sabel/Flamingo, so your biggest unaided stretch would be more like 40 miles. You can "park" the boat anywhere... just getting outside assistance may be difficult.

For the most part if you're within a mile or so of shore, you do get cell coverage for most of the way (not sure about Cape Sabel to Keys)

Is there some kind of cross-reference between boat names and boat type and skipper/crew?
