We have looked at alot of other locations.
Dutchmans - limited dockage and no where to get a really good view of the boats running
Windows on the Bay - LOOOOOOOOOOOW water access into there by boat
The Old Crabbys/Windward Beach - Metedeconk gets real narrow there and there may not be enough room to spool up and then shut down
Gilford Park Yacht Club - best candidate next to Water's Edge. BBOPBRA Time Trials held there in 1980-82. We have contacted the folks there and there is a possibility for next year.
Next issue - Insurance for a Radar Shootout? Oh somewhere around $6,000. $75 x 80 boats will be a break even for just the insurance. Nevermind the $800 in trophies and other expenses. In the past the largest group of boats we have had was 50. It is a really tough event to produce.
We are always open for suggestions! And thank you for those of you that have already made suggestions. If you want them to be private, email me at [email protected]
