Default Key West Races - Best Place to Watch?

Being there before, I know where I would like to be, but what's going to be thee place to watch from this year?...With the cruise ship being there and all that. With the shortened corse, will Truman Annex be any good? What about Malory square?...Will there be remaining viewing around the ship?

You need to get to the Park where you can see the boats entering the harbor. Or the sea wall at the Truman annex.

Mallory will suck if the cruise ships are in town.

Jeff Gerardi's helicopter is the best place to watch from.

Ya, I'm sure that's nice...If I sleep in my truck for the four days, I might be able to afford it.

Hey Daze....

The Ocean Key Club pier (bar/restaurant). If you get there early enought to get a table (or get someone you know who is staying there, maybe Tonto, to reserve for you). You can almost reach out and touch the boats racing by..........

Have a great time.......sorry my plans changed at the last minute.....tip a few for me..... .

Ya, too bad you can't make it. Rest asured, I'll tip back more than a few. We'll hook up next year sometime.

One question, wouldn't the cruise ship be in the way of that too.

JIMKID Motorsports,
That would be great. The view would be like no other. However, I believe it's only for VIP ticket holders.

Have you heard otherwise? I would love to know.
