allow teh spectators to get closer to eth action. the first 2 NYC races I was at i watched from shore. Thsi year i was in eth middle of the coure on DJD post. We are talkign a whole new ballgame. When 20 boats come hauling ass towards you you can feel the pounding of the exhaust in your chest its quite a rush.
Shorter courses. Perhaps slower boat but run them in a tighta rea so the fleet doesn;t get so spread out. towards the end of the race when there are 4 boats left its can get kind of dull to watch.
Announcers liek at car racers. Hell i know abotu offshore and i can barely tell who's winnign overall let alone by class.
Kill the bull****. All racing is politics BUT offshore has more drama than politics. Set a schedule and stick to it. NO MATTER WHAT. Delaying a race 2 hours for no apparent reason otehr than disorganization just doesn't look pro.
More hottie in tiny bikinis. Why is havasu abnd loto so popular? Fast boats hot ladies lots of booze its a party and a spectacle. Racing has teh fast boats and the booze now it needs soem more eye candy pehaps combine a bikini contest with the race and have the contestants be trophy girls.
Also boating has a limited appeal in the general market. Everyone drievs cars. SO it natural that the genneral public can relate to car racing (who hasn't once dreamed of being a car racer?) BUT not everyone likes boat, let alone go fast boats. I think it need somehitg other than monster engein to get the public to relate. I know my favorite thign abotu boat races in the engiens. WHen you hear 10 boats fire with big blocks and open exhausts it get my heart pumping. Unfortunatly not all peopel are HP junkies like us.
