The turn buoy is placed in line toward the Sopana a old concrete ship wreck . This is the ship that Aronow and others would use as a pick up race turn boat. Who has a faster boat? Race to the concrete ship and back, whoever is back first wins. Simple
Currently Aqua Mania holds the record of 43:43 for an average speed of 145 MPH from the 2009 race.
If you can drive a straight line in open ocean which most drivers cant without reference you have the ability to beat boats which may be faster.
There is no other event which provides a simple straight forward test of boat, driver skill, and ability to run a boat offshore in a controlled professional race enviroment without the all the added expense and race requirements.
Right now MYSTIC is Top Gun and Skater has the other cat class records. Statement has a pleasure turbine cat record.
V bottom is Fountain and Cigarette in the twin classes
We will see what happens this year. Word on the street is we will see some OL this year and apaches come out for an old school challenge.
But to me it is all talk until they get wet.
Aqua - Mania Mystic has the TURBINE Record , Jimmy Lee,s 46 Skater Freedom US-1 won The challenge in 2010 ! JT & George Kovacs MTI still holds the record in Open cat from 2009 ? Bob teaques 368 Skater AMSOIL holds the record in Cat Light ,,,etc...
Brad maybe we should re-post the times again for last year !
Sneak Peek of this years shirt!
Wow 106 miles at 145 mph. Probably ready for a rebuild when you get back.
I might think about bringing my 28 depending on work schedule etc. What is the cost to enter? If it is really rough and the smaller boats cant run do they offer any kind of refund? I know last year it in close the water was great but heard some of you said it got a lot bigger in the gulf stream.
This time of year down here you never know. Could be a sheet of glass or a bowl of crap.
Have you run the 28 yet?
Nice poster, you only have one raceboat on it though.......the Freedom US1 skater
