Default Destin

OSS today announced that beautiful Destin Fla. will host the 06 OSS World Championship in November. Over 40 state of the art canopy boats will roar into Destin for rough water racing, the most beautiful beach's in the world, and the fans and merchants eager to welcome offshore racing to Destin.

Destin was originally slated to be the inaugural race of the 06 OSS season . But the long-term effects of last year's hurricaine season continue to be keenly felt in the Florida Panhandle.Intensive clean-up efforts from Hurricane Katrina are still underway in Destin. These efforts include critical dredging in the area designated as the race course. After discussions with Alan Laird, a prominent Destin businessman, and the city of Destin, a mutual decision was reached committing Destin as the host of the '06 OSS Worlds. An agreement was also reached whereby Destin signed a five year hosting option with OSS that promises unprecedented purses and sponsorship opportunities for OSS and its owners.

Despite intensive negotiations with the Conch Republic to participate in the Key West Worlds in '06 no agreement could be reached. OSS moved forward with its planning and is delighted to add Destin to its schedule.

The first race of the '06 OSS season wil be Pickwick, TN May 6-7.

Watch for more exciting news from OSS very soon!

Too bad everyone can't get together on this one and get it back in KW. I know the racers like it there and the fans sure do. Good luck.
