Mind you, it never stopped me from going and won't, but it has stopped some from the area of going to the races, and it is hard to get new people to go to them as well. Back in the day it was more spectator friendly. As memory serves me correctly (I could be wrong) there was never any probs/accidents that occured to any spectator boats.
No I have never been to a race up north. The north turns in Sarasota has the spectator fleet pretty close, like 20 yards off.
