Now this is a real "Old School" Race!
We are having a race on the west coast that's like that race. Long Beach to Catalina and back 77 miles.
They should have a class set up for the ""iron men" boats no bigger than 30ft and stock merc(not racing mercs either ) powerplants(twin Merc496/425 max).
Now that would be old school tough!
