I'll be going for sure, but it's bad news for SBI. They now only have 4 races lined up for 2018. With 3/4 of them being in Florida. There's not enough boats and too many organizations going on right now. I'm not sure what SBI is going to do next. Good news for RWO though!

Great, another offshore racing group made up of thieves. Pathetic.

These organizations just don't get it. And he website for RWO only has one boat listed in each class? 5 or 6 boats?
SAD.

So it must have been droppd by sbi first to be picked up by Rwo or am I worng. So if that's the case they didn't take it they saved it. I couldn't go to all the sbi Florida races so I would watch them on live stream but then they started to charge ant to me the quality wasn't worth paying for. So they lost me there. I was super happy when they came to ohio and went both years now they are dumping that are too. Maybe it should be called Fsbi.

Not the first race to be taken from SBI by a new org... Conversation probably goes like "Hey SBI the NBRG (New Boat Race Group) says they will give us more money and free T-shirts to have the race, what are you going to to to beat their deal? SBI... Bye Felicia,,,,,,,,

SBI did not drop it .

Personally as one of the volunteers we all loved mentor.the fans were awesome .
I,ll miss being there.
As far as boat count go,s .I,m sure if rwo can just take the sites it wants ,it can take the teams they want.which doesn't include any open boats.of course as money gets tight they will change that real quick.
hell maybe they,ll take some of the staff as well.

I don't know why any OPA site would defect considering most OPA events bring 30-35 boats. Can't say that about any other offshore group.
