This race sounds great......... and is really catching on.....

Maybe.....this will finally unite people and get rid of all the classes and competing factions. Now if all the hangers on, moochers and parasites steer clear this could be a real winner.

One can only hope.....

By the way....are you thinking of racing in this event?. This is really appealing in a lot of ways...and it might be a gas, to see how much gas, some of the really old gassers....still have

Pardon me...but I think I have gas.

For those who need some "gas" by the way of real information....I highly recommend the DVD's of the old days of offshore racing, that Big Seas has put together...especially the "Legend of Apache"

For those who don't know or don't remember, these films will show what open ocean racing was all about. See how the boats were trimmed and how fast they really ran in the open ocean.

Shameless plug...these OSO Sponsored DVD's, can be found at the online store at:

Just a little reminder of how much fun you can have with an outboard powered boat in the Gulf Stream.

This is our new flyer that we will give away at Boat shows etc., it is 8 X 10 and can be framed for your garage or shop.
