Can I download the forms for the boat and riding crew, send it in with a check and register the non-racing crew on site.
This would be much easier since our crew is huge and from all over the country?

Thanks for all the support!

Since we only have one race, the form that has boat registration info and fee on it, acts as the entry form.

Special offer by John Crouse. since many have never seen the Gulfstream and how it can run.....John is offering a Special on both his 600 plus page book SEARACE and the actual video of the SEARACE race, from Miami to Nassau back to Miami, for a combined special rate.

See online store for details At Horba

www.historicraceboats.com

Plus you can also get the OSO Sponsored ......Apache Legends DVD's..... too that show a lot of big water racing...... same place.

Scott....without a doubt, you will have the fastest boat there....BUT, I do remember other races, where the fastest guy still had to cross the Gulfstream...TWICE....and the speed that he had, was not the speed he could use.

I know you remember these types of waves from your days in a 24 footer!!!

That was Sammy James in a 38 foot Bertram.

Sammy will be among the old racers at the party on Friday night, come and honor these guys who did it all ....with stuff like this for 180 miles or so.......back in the days.

PS....this is not a photo shop...this is an original Ron Thibedeau shot..HORBA has the negative.

Charlie, Larry, et al, Scheduling: Larry is beating on the community to participate in some activity for Friday aftrnoon and evening. Wine and cheese (Jesus, real men don't do wine and cheese)! in the pits after Bimini, and then a parking lot fair like the street thing in Key West. I have already scheduled the geezer night for Friday night. I'm not sure how one thing affects the other. I am willing to cooperate any way that I can. What do the rest of you think about the situation? Any suggestion will be welcome. My plan has been to get a few big boats, and take out lots of people to watch the race and bury Gillmore at sea during it. Then, back to shore and up to Jimbo's Raw Bar in Hollywood, where we have a huge indoor and outdoor venue, with our favorite band playing from 5 to 10pm. Good food and drink. Great mix of old racers and Gilly's friends. Whaddya think?
