I'm lookin' forward to it. With winds straight out of the north most of the weekend it'll be a great run from St. Pete up to Clearwater.


It'll make it interesting in the spectator area, though, with all the idiots dragging their anchor banging into one another.

After seeing some of the pics from your previous adventures I have to ask- was that supposed to be "have panty room"?

Just kidding... should be a good weekend even with a little wind, last year was pretty windy and there was still a great turnout on Sunday. Think they guesstimated 2500 spectator boats last year.
