They are planning on shooting the movie part next September....in Miami of course...so this will give them a lot of footage of an actual open ocean race going on, which is what they need for the movie, especially the classic boats.
Thanks, I appreciate your offer.....I really don't know how this will end up.....I told them that we would help in anyway too......I would love to see these modern racers get the experience just once, they are more than capable and they would just love it.
Here is a look at the 3 classes they are proposing.
There should be a single engine class - o/b or i/o.
There are three classes....that's it.
They are putting up the money and effort to get movie footage....that is their whole agenda.
The racers either go with the three classes or don't go.......it isn't what I would do, but I'm not putting the money up either.
I hear that Nykamp want's to run Allez Vite!
whilst reading this thread, is it normal to mutter to yourself things like...
..no old heads on young shoulders...10ft tall and bullet proof
..money cant buy class
...its up to the old bulls to teach the kids how to handle testosterone, there is more to being a man than a big mouth
..if they're serious, there are world wide comps they can run in
..think RL is even known down here

I don't see why you couldn't...or shouldn't..run a single in the "Modern"....class.
Regarding your new 28' hull...... put a single Buzzi on that thing and watch what happens against the larger multi engine hulls...with 250 KM worth of fuel on board..... (I presume one refueling??).
That little devil in 6-7 foot seas could be a real sleeper......
Remember you won't be racing at 90-110....this event will level the field speed at around 65-70...........
and the aerial photos and video would be amazing......
Obsolete and proud of it
