Default where to watch the races in Key West

We've bumped our itinerary a little and I think we will be able to make the last day(sun) of the finals. I haven't been to key west since I was a little kid so I have no idea where I'm going. Can some tell me or show me a map of where exactly the races are and where to go to watch them. Thanks!

Any where around Mallory Square is good. The best spot is gone due to the Wilma. You can also pay and go out past the wet pits. Follow the crowds. Have fun.

Fort Zachary Taylor Park is always a blast to watch from

How much does it cost to get in the pits?

We did Fort Zachary the first time, but to me the best place is to rent a table at the end of sunset pier.

Sit down, shade from the sun, restroom & bar service and you can walk back to your hotel!

You can feel the spray off the boats when they pass!

Pay to go into the pits (Truman Annex) and then follow the crowd out to the Outer Mole - that's the best spot.
