I received the following from John McKnight regarding the next CABB race:

"1. The next CABB race will be the Black Ledge Distance race. The date will be Sunday, August 29. The crew meeting will be at 10:30 at the beach on the Rickenbacker Causeway. Mark your calendar for this fun distance race. It is one of our annual distance races. We race down to the Black Ledge marker and then to marker 21 and back to the beach. Check a chart if you are not familiar with Black Ledge.

2. I have heard that the Conch Cup, scheduled for August 21, has been postponed. I spoke with Regatta Chairman, Kenneth Benton, and he said there was a problem with getting a permit in time. They are planning to reschedule it in the fall. I will pass along the date when I hear one. "

What will I need to participate? Other than the boat?
any registration fees? insurance? I have never raced my cat, or have even crewed on one. I would definatley love to participate in this event somehow. Either with my cat, or crewing with someone.

plz let me know.

$20.00 per year gets you in. That includes an occasional mango.

I am crewless as of today, what should I do Arbo? Should I show up with or without a boat. I am skeptical and hesitant. Really dont want to race alone (this would be my very first race ever)

PLUS: I have no clue of these spots that you mention. I was thinking more on the lines, follow the group. LOL

any recommendations?

I won't be there either. I just purchased an ARC 21 (attached) and will be in Key LArgo the 26th - 29th. On the other hand, I could leave the keys early on he 29th and make the race.
For you/ show up with your boat and see what the options are. Even if you don't race, meet some of the guys and sail around the bay to start getting familiar or follow the group.

Robi,
See you on the 29th? I'll be the guy with the ARC 21 with the fat red stripe. Perhaps I'll bring some RED STRIPE for after the race.....

Hey, I am watching as well, but can't join in the fun from Put-in-Bay, Ohio. Although plenty of fun here. Just raced the Trans-Erie race from one end to the other and we finished first on an F-31R

Rick,
Wow, How long did that take? I was up in Cleveland this past weekend and the weather was beautiful!


Arbo, Robi,

I thought the race was last weekend, and I was out of town. I will be there on Sunday. I guess I'll need to get a map of the area or something. Right?
What are the basics I should take to the race for safety? I hope I don't need GPS and expensive gadgets like that. How long / far is the distance and how long is the race (in time)?

I havent been able to find a chart of the area. But as I type this post I am on my way out to West Marine, to see if they have one. After doing some online research, I read that last year it took three hours to complete, but with 15 to 20 kts of wind. The weather this year says the winds will be around 5 to 10kts.

My plan is just to follow the group. What beach will they meet up?

Hope to see you all there.

Rick,

The race was last weekend and it was pouring down while driving east and while setting up the boat and for the first half of the race.
As we approached the islands area (Pelee and Put-in-Bay) the clouds finally broke up and we saw stars for the first time. With the rain and overcast at night it was really difficult keeping a spinnaker flying -- no visibility, just feel. The drill I use in my Sailing Seminars really paid off -- "Eyes Closed Drill." It teaches you to sail by feel rather than just staring at telltales.

The wind died for a couple of hours just before the sky cleared, but filled in for a close reach on the homestretch from Pelee Point to Grosse Ile, MI.

Really was a good sail overall, but pretty tiring. Total time was around 18 hours. Not bad for all that distance.

One the race in Biscayne, a chart would be helpful, but as mentioned, just follow the other boats. On the trip back head for Stiltsville until you see the entrance to the channel and that is were the rounding mark is. Then head for the bridge.

Good luck and have fun,
Rick

HObie Beach is after you cross the big bridge over the Intracoastal Waterway and to your right, or south(and where the cat rentals are). Go to the second driveway entrance, take a right, and that will double you back to where the CABB Fleet sets up.

Robi,
Did you find a map of the area for the race at West Marine??

Rick,

Other than water bottles and PFD's, are there any other "must haves" that I need to take?

Can I bring two crew instead of one? is this illegal?

water and pfds are musts, trapeze belt and clothing that protects you from the sun, etc., sunblock

You can have the entire Hurrican Team on your boat, if you like, but it could be a little slower.


Have fun,
Rick

Yes I got the chart. Its a water proof chart.

"Miami Area" by Top charts. Its a fishing and diving chart that shows you the entire Biscayne Bay are.

Payed a little over 16 dollars with taxes. I went to West Marine on US-1 and State Road 84

Robi,

Good! that's my West Marine. I'll go tonight to pick one up.
See you on Sunday. I'm on the Hobie 18 with white main, with orange and yellow stripes, and the blimp on the tip of the mast.

Rick,
thanks, I'll leave the Hurricanes and just bring my wife and a friend. That should make it a little faster!
I've got the Harnesses, sunblock, hats, I guess I'll take a cell phone (in a waterproof bag) and some sandwiches. So I guess I'm good to go!
