Brownie,

I will pass this on to the OSS site manager as they control the pits. I/we will work as hard as possible to make it happen or find a appropriate alternative.

Thanks,

Brad

Brad,
Is a passport going to be needed??
The "race" is going through international waters and I heard if you go more than a few miles offshore w/o a passport (not even touching foreign land) you are liable for a fine. Is that true???
Regards,
Pepe @ Pantera.

NO!.

I do not know where this urban legend started.

We are not making landfall. If you run out of gas or breakdown near Bimini and get towed in well then yes but you can always claim Force Majuer.

The Coast Guard is issuing the permit for the start finish they know we are running toward Bimini and the turn bouy will be set an appropraite place as to not interfere with regular recreational traffic as much as possible.

Just make sure you have enough fuel to run 102 NM and you will be just fine!

Thanks,

The turnboat should be where it always was, at the cement ship.

Yes I know...Fortunately, Way back then You didn’t have a bunch of rules and DHS. For now let’s just say the location of the turn will be revealed at the drivers meeting but for planning purposes it is going to be 50 NM out!

Pepe,

All I can tell you is I spoke with Sector Miami again after I saw your post and they know nothing about it.

I worked with customs and immigration long enough to know the right hand often has know idea what the left is doing.

I can also tell you if it is a foriegn flagged boat on an annual cruising permit then they must report berth changes and port to port movments.

I will continue to check but as for now they are all saying "I know nothing"
