Hi All, with respect to Rick his health, and all he has done for sailing, I will help continue the 2016 Steeple Chase on Dec 10th and 11th in his honor.
Hopefully Rick will feel up coming by but he's has asked me to continue the tradition of this race while he battles this situation.
As you read above there are some rates already in place at the Islander, and other places to stay in the area.
I have been in touch with Steve Lohmayer and the party will continue at his place on Saturday night after the first leg of the race.
Please spread the word and let's get behind Rick.
Any suggestions for the race will be considered.
Thanks Dennis
Islander Watersports

looks like fun!

On the other coast (Naples) with the offshore breeze, we were topping 18 kts kite reaching on the F24 in the relatively flat (1 meter) water.

2016 Steeplechase Catamaran Race, December 10-11, Islamorada to Key Largo and Back.

The 32nd running of the Steeplechase was a challenge, and that’s just as it should be. This years event was won by the Team of Jamie Livingstone and Kenny Pierce on a Tornado in a fast total time for the two days of 7 hours, 48 minutes. Second was Ralph and Pat Cole on a Nacra 20 Carbon followed up by James Zelmer and Joe Velwave on a F18 (with a team name “Hobie 21”).

Special mention to the F18 team of David Reed and Mark Herendeen who, despite being demasted during day one, were able to recover and race the second day back from Key Largo. In the true spirit of endurance beachcat racing, other teams provided the needed parts and help to get them back on the water for Sunday’s start.

Just before the trophy presentation we had an anonymous Donor offer up $1500.00 in cash, as prize money to be split for top three finishers for 2017 version or the Steeplechase.
Any body interested ???
Details will follow on either catsailor or TheBeachcats.com

Why did they use the wrong rating for the Tornado?

Congrats to all for what sounds like another great running of this event! Awesome to see that Dennis was able to step up and carry the baton for Rick during his illness.

Spelling ckeck: Jim's crew is Joe Valente (couple of New England sailors). Joe was one of the ProSail guys, and will always be a Hobie 21 sailor in his heart. Those guys are always crafty and entertaining.

+1 Mike, had the same correction in mind.

Stock or modified T?

Why are they using Portsmouth? Not only is it a dead rating system for beachcats, it has no meaning when you throw a F20c into the mix. I'd be curious what the results under SCHRS would be (doubt they would change much).

Hopefully 2016 will bring more particpants and Rick back to good health smile

And yes Dennis, prize money is enticing, may cover part of the cost of getting a boat down there. Maybe.
