You're going to want to stay at the Vinoy! It's THE place to be. Great hotel, in the heart of downtown, on the water, next to the pits, a short distance to the pier, and it will be the host hotel.

The race will be the weekend of the 18th. Look here:

The course is similar (but different) to Marathon. Anything but a rectangle

Negative. The race is now going to take place in the bay in and around the vicinity of the St. Pete pier and the Vinoy Basin.
