Its kinda of ironic that the open class winner averaged 69.9 mph. Today's smallest OPA class is 70 mph bracket-and alot of the fleet breaks out.

Well the courses were a whole lot different....so even today they would be quite there.. just look at Cowes-Torquay-Cowest avarage speeds even today.

If I respond to this as I should I sound old and living in the past so instead I'll agree...

"Yea, those boats were slow and those drivers if they had to race like we do today in the river they would get dizzy loose sight of the GPS screen and have to give up!"

You know I'm only busting you but it's amazing how times change that people think Miami-Binimi-Miami is an "offshore" race. Yes, it's cool but - it's not even half the distance of an old class 1 event.

Its all good Habana, I guess we can credit Rocky Aoki for bringing the race courses close to shore, a stipualtion he mandated for Benihana to sponsor the most successfull race in history.
Truth be told, if it wasn't for boats like Kamma, Bounty Hunter, Benihana, Long Shot, and Beep Beep, I would probably be involved in another sport. Some of best memories I have as a kid were meeting these racer. I also "blame" these racers for my addiction to this "nonsense".
38Vice, do you own the Kamma boat?

It's the Only event where they lose sight of Land or go in water more than 50' deep
