Rick,

OK, I got the map and I found Black Ledge. But i don't see any identifying markers in that area. What is the course typically? Stiltsville seems to be NE of Black Ledge. Are they going to drop a Buoy there?

After reading online, this is what I understand.

Launch from Hobie beach
Go to Black Ledge, wich is South East of Chicken Key, round marker number 2. It should be the last marker of the channel. Then head back to hobie beach.

Isnt that stretch roughly 15NMs ? Thats going to be ONE long run. Specially in 5kt winds!

Edit: anyone interested in going out tomorow? I shall be at either Dogs or Hobie beach around 12noonish.

Robi, are you thinking about not racing??

C'mon! It'll just be a little longer cruise, that's all!

Anyway, Hope to see you there.

The only way for me NOT to race, is if for some ODD reason I die before the start! I shall be there.

Matter of fact im leaving to the bay right now. Gonna try to get some practice runs in first.

Good,

I just checked the weather forecast and it looks like tomorrow the wind will be from the SSW at about 9mph! It's going to be a TackFest on our way to the 1st marker! (maybe a little outboard would be in order.

All I gotta say is that TODAY WAS A BLAST!!!

Got there around 2:30pm was in the water by 3:00pm Going around the bay, a lil storm came through, wind shifted! We beached for around 45mins.

Then it picked up big time!!! Went back out, and both me and my crew were out on the trap! Just hauling her up and down the bay. It was a blast!

See you all tomorow!
