Default "Short" Course...5 cards

For the Express Cruisers, Sport Fish boats, and "non" Go-Fast boats, you can do the parade to the George Washington Bridge (5 miles) at 10 knots with the entire fleet, take the start (be in the pictures) and turn around (in the vicinity of Yonkers Pier or sooner), and return to Liberty Landing Marina. You will be given all of your cards there. FYI, any contestant who misses a checkpoint will receive the balance of their cards/hand at the finish line/Liberty Landing Marina. So everybody gets 5 cards whether they make every checkpoint or not...in contrast to some other organizations' poker runs.
Hope you ALL come out and support the run and keep this event ALIVE!

PS: ...some "heavy hardware" is definitely showing up!

The Chris-Cat was sold many years ago. We will be running our old F-2 boat, if we can still remember how!
