Here's what it looks like now (10:15 am) about 40 miles southeast of Jones Beach on the Jersey Shore.... The fog was a lot worse at 7 am. If it got too thick maybe he threw in the towel because he couldn't beat the record????

Sorry GL, I couldn't resist.

HORBA is working on a date for next year's Don Aronow Memorial Around Long Island race, that fits in with the Brits schedule between their Round Britain race in June and their Cowes race in late August.

They need enough time to ship back and forth for their boats. So, maybe, just maybe as this is still wide open, in July

How about a record attempt the day before the big race??? Gives you almost a year to plan.
