Should be a good opportunity for all brands to show what they're made of. What a great idea.

Do you think we could get some of classics together to have a "vintage class" ?
I will do everything I can to promote this to our organization. Hope we can get some West coast members to show up and
represent us. www.historicraceboats.com

I plan on being there, anyone have any connections for a chopper?

Remember when this was the norm in racing?

There is a lot of history with this race, it was always fun to compete in such a beautiful locale.

The So Cal people always knew how to party too!!

I'd pay to watch that too. That's what I love, the old school real ocean racing. I don't know why the hell they can't get something like this going on the east coast. A Ft Liquordale to Bimini and back would be interesting, especially if the gulfstream gets it's back up.

Now that I think of it, they should have the PCL (Pacific Coast League) run the Catalina race, and the ACL (Atlantic Coast League) run the Bimini run, then the two winners face off somwhere in the Great Lakes. I'm sure they have an island out there somewhere they could race to an back. It would be the Superbowl of Superboats.

The KING of the patch jacket was Bob Nordskog......he had patches on top of patches, you couldn't even see what material the jacket was made of.

Every race organization gave you a patch when you entered. I kept a lot, and lost a lot over the years, but ended up with some nice memories.

Here are some more from the west coast.
