Will there be a 2018 Steeplechase?

Sorry, I've been away from the forum for a while. Life, sailing, teenagers turning into adults...

The Steeplechase is in danger of being cancelled for 2018 since there is only one team registered so far ( Thanks Dick MacDonald with Turtle Mojo! ) so if you plan to race please register right away and don't let this race fade away.

The Florida Keys in December! Wish I could come down from dreary Memphis where winter means dark and rainy.

I wish I could race and give them a run for their money, but it may have to be next year.

Hi Cat Sailors, This is my first post. I was the last one to register for the steeple chase and participated on a Hobie 16, the "Unsinkable II." The race organizers needed 6 entries to keep the race going....and my friends talked me into signing up. I've never raced before and my Hobie had not done any sailing for years! My colleagues on the "Swizzle" sailed a Hobie 16 Wave. I had a blast and I will do this again next year! We need more participants! The other racers were very nice and the club is very friendly. I got 2 DNF's because of a broken rudder, really bad hull leaks and lack of skill...but I WILL be ready to be competitive next year! Please come visit us in the Florida Keys!
