who is first or second is meaningless since they depart individually....

TIME there and back is the key

They only leave seconds within each other, so yes it's timed but you can tell the winner by who gets back first

There was only a couple seconds between each boat at start. So pretty much an even start considering how far we went.. We were in freedom, we were in the lead for the first 3/4 of way to Bimini, then jbs passed us then right before turn bouy statement turbine 50' cat passed us beat us to turn bouy by few seconds. We turn the bouy in Bimini and made it back toward Miami 4 miles then passed the Mercedes running towards Bimini still. So at that point we were around 6-8 miles in lead for piston boats.. We make it about ten miles to the finish and break a prop. Stop and access situation.. Run on one engine idling back for little bit. Then we put it in low gear so we could get it on plane then decide to start other engine and try to run the last ten miles at around 40 - 50 mph. Boat is shaking apart and we for ten minuites we are seeing rooster tails getting closer and closer. And were hopeing we make it across the finish line before they catch us or the drive breaks off. We cross the finish line then three or for min later Mercedes mti crosses finish.. That last 10 min at 40 mph was the most stressful of the whole run..
