Here was a photo from one of the newspapers covering the Point Pleasant Beach race.
We started from dead last postion. The offshore waters were big, so I decided to keep us in along the beach. As everyone outside of us were launching to the sky from deep ground swells, we seemed to have a calmer area along the beach. I told our driver Rich to watch out for the surfers....He said "What surfers?" I showed him this pic the next day.
