Don't want to forget that the winners acknowledged the tremendous help they got from both Tommy Abraham and Jimmy McIntyre....they stated if it wasn't for the loan of equipment and their help, they would not have made the race.

So kudos again to racers helping racers.....good show!!

I would love to see the real NJ offshore race take place. Either the 80's shortened course (about 150 miles) or the original course which went out to Fire Island and was over 200 miles.

Welcome back offshore racing!
please stop with the inshore racing bullchit, there have been lots of OPA and APBA, SBI races in REAL rough water.5 ,6 8 foot seas 25 to 30mph winds where boats broke and guys have died in the last 10 to 17 years. back in the old days yep you went 150 200 miles in a race at 50 to 80 mph. so you call the new races and racers worthless me included only run a few miles offshore for 60 to 70 miles. but we run a LOT FAST and a lot more guys have DIE from them. some seasons 2 or more racers have died. I have had friends help me build a great rough water boat over the last two years and we will be done this week I hope, its great that the enduro races are making a come back. I planned on doing this one but ran out of time but should be all set for the bimini race.the water can be rougher at the coastal races because of sandbars and the depth coming up quick to the coast can make waves real steep with big holes not like in open water where they grow apart so you can get a rhythm most of the time. and this race sounds like it had good water to run in. once your off the beach your OFFSHORE. like I said yesterday congrats to JOE & JOE racing and the other 5 race teams and boats and to Charlie & Billy and helpers for getting her done. maybe next year you guys can get opa guys too. it would be awesome to have 20 to 50 boats run it.ps. for xmas this year I want a second gas tank for my floor, since my main tank is behind my seats. and some new lifelines since mine are old as dirt. congrats again.

Sounds like they had done their homework and planned accordingly. That's how you win these things: Plan your work & work your plan. Running less fuel efficient engines like Mercury 700's ( or anything more powerful) would have forced a fuel stop and prevented the new record. They brought the right weapon to this fight. Good thinking.

Quite frankly it's the opposite. I like to purchase my own toys. It gives me a sense of pride and accomplishment. Wish I could say the same for a lot of members on this forum.

I have mixed emotions about this. While I agree the BS running around in 1 mile circles in the bays and rivers is a complete joke, it does make it conductive for spectators.

But, in my mind 100+ mile races run from point A to point B in true offshore conditions is what real "offshore racing" is and what it should be all about. The downside to this is makes it tough for spectators to be drawn in because they really can't participate. For it to be viable you really have to have TV coverage, which will hopefully happen going forward as the fleet grows.

Either way I'm glad to see the LI race did come to fruition this year as I think it will continue to build steam going forward. If they did pull the plug at the last minute this year (as it appear they were going to do), the race without question would have been doomed going forward. Obviously the promoters need to do their homework for next year as there was plenty of room for improvement with how things have been handled, but I think the foundation is solid if things are better thought out.

I also think it's good to see two extremes when it comes to the caliber of boats we've had win over the last two years. It not only goes to show that anyone can win if they can just finish, but it also showcases some of todays fastest machines and opens the door for more and better future competition.

I would expect to see faster boats and more competitors in the coming years. As long as mother nature is charitable, I would also expect to see the records continue to get broken by quite a bit, as we saw with the OB record this year. It's fantastic to see the overall record broken this year, but the record was only broken by the slimmest of margins. Given the technology advancements we've seen over the last 30 years I have to think there's plenty of room for the faster boats (especially the cats) to really blow the doors off today's record under the right conditions.

Let's hope we are seeing the beginning of a renewed era of offshore racing in the US!
