I really thought the idea of an endurance race such as the Miami to N.Y. would have much more appeal , checkpoints along the way(for spectators to get a view of equip.) more people and areas to get involved and create an event. Although the logistics of such an event would be enormous as would be the cost ,planning,commitment etc etc.
Racing to Bimini is not far from what is offered currently except it's a straight line ...I've spent many a day running to Bimini w.o.t. in a 24 footer of course stopping to drag a dolphin or 2 in the boat at any good floaties.
