Here's what it looks like now (10:15 am) about 40 miles southeast of Jones Beach on the Jersey Shore.... The fog was a lot worse at 7 am. If it got too thick maybe he threw in the towel because he couldn't beat the record????
HORBA is working on a date for next year's Don Aronow Memorial Around Long Island race, that fits in with the Brits schedule between their Round Britain race in June and their Cowes race in late August.
They need enough time to ship back and forth for their boats. So, maybe, just maybe as this is still wide open, in July
How about a record attempt the day before the big race??? Gives you almost a year to plan.
Tommy Abraham/36 Mti Cat w/700 HP Mercs, attempt at the AROUND LONG ISLAND RECORD OF 3 hours and 6 minutes, set by Stu Hayim in 1989;
Started at 7:05 am at buoy “Gong #15, Long Island Sound, (Lloyd’s Neck), travelling toward NYC,
He made it to Atlantic Beach/Jones Inlet.(south shore Long Island)
He got bit by "mechanical gremlins" ...
He did 67 miles in 45 minutes and has 265 gallons of fuel left.
We are all going to the Poker run later at Glen Cove…4-10 pm
Then back tomorrow for the run.
PS: There will be a “satellite” replay on Tommy’s attempt on the website.
Sonic should have showed up today and did it again ...
still amazed... I broke a bravo drive shaft in my first poker run...
