Default Once in a lifetime opportunity....

I was just contacted by the British and asked to make the American offshore community aware of the upcoming race....in 2013, the Cowes to Monte Carlo offshore race.

There is no greater challenge or greater adventure for offshore powerboaters.

2400 nautical miles

Plenty of time to get your sponsors all lined up.

2400 miles my body aches just thinking of 4 to 12 foot sea for 2400 miles haha. but it would be cool, you just need extra drives/motors/ bodies. the long island race for 2011 will be a good practice run for it.

What happened to that TreeHugger Trihull that got whacked by the Whale Hunting ship?

Tortoise and the Hare right? Slow and steady wins the race?
