Default 1st Entry into the "DON ARONOW MEMORIAL AROUND LONG ISLAND MARATHON" 9-18-10

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
JOHN RUGGIERI, The 'King of Long Island Sound', with the Trophy to prove it, has entered his 40' Activator V-Bottom, "WHITE LIGHTNING", powered by twin-turbocharged CHIEF Engines and #6 Merc speedmasters, into the Don Aronow Memorial Marathon Race Around Long Island.
The boat is capable of running 119 mph, but speed is not the only factor...navigation and endurance will play a big part in placing in this 271 mile event.
Guy LaMotta's Manhasset Bay Marina and Restaurant will host the event and many NPBA Hall of Famer's plan on attending and even competing once again.
Some of the past winners also will be attending...This will be the "OFFSHORE" PLACE TO BE for this Sept 18th event...and reactivate the Perpetual MANHASSET BAY GOLD CUP TROPHY
The present record, established in 1989 after 3 attempts, is held by Stu Hayim in his 32 Skater, "RECOVERY" with 650 HP Eickert Engines, Merc Speedmasters and Joey Impresscia on throttles...3 hours and 6 minutes with 1 fuel stop at Montauk...that averages out to 87.42 mph as his overall average speed.
