Thumbs up

Glad to hear you made it back Brad.

I am always afraid if I ever go there I may not want to come home !

Whats the smallest boat that has made this run? Would a 24 Skater be a good fit?

Also, what are the legalities of the trip, do you have to have a passport for going into bimini?

You could run a 24 Skater as long as the weather conditions support it.

You do not have to have a passport. However we strongly encourage you to have one in the event you become disabled and must make landfall on Bimini.

You can claim Force Major. The Bahamians wont bother you but CBP will really hassel you hard when you return to the US.

The rule book and all other information is on the website:

www.Offshoreevents.net

Dont forget FPC is doing a run on Saturday as well.

Yeah Brad I guess rough is all relative..my understanding was that it got a little choppy miles offshore...times were not nearly as fast as previous years and Jeff and Joey certainly had the bruises afterward to show for their 1st place effort...not to mention JBS letting lose a kidney stone...

Hey Brad, are we allowed to tell everyone about the New Venue for the 4th annual Sunny isles beach OFFSHORE POWERBOAT challenge weekend ?
And can we announce the 20th Anniversary Celebration that we are planning for Stus, Florida Powerboat Club at The MIAMI - BIMINI OCEAN CHALLENGE EVENT ?

Well Larry yes I think we can:

Ladies and Gentlemen

Welcome to Gulfstream Park and the Villages at Guflstream Park

http://http://www.thevillageatgulfstreampark.com/

20 Years ago the Florida Powerboat Club held its very first Poker Run out of Sunny Isles Beach. At that time Stu Jones was a young single guy living with none other than Larry Goldman.

Welcome back to the beginning. You can go boating or You can go OFFSHORE!!

See you in June! www.OFFSHOREEVENTS.net
