I'm IN, anyone have a boat I can use?

Anyone looking for a co-pilot?

A bag of Dorito's and a six pack of Jolt cola I'm ready to go!

um....looking at the prize page......if you win the overall race you get 10mil......wouldnt that mean more or less that you should be winning the day to day prize of 550k as well? that would come out to a total of $13.3mil!!

And what about these entry fees? If i'm in a 25' boat its gonna cost the team $45,500 min.....and if they have a 3rd guy its an extra $5k
And if your in a 46'+ boat its gonna cost ya $65,500 for a two man boat...again add another 5K for the 3rd guy!!!

I dont understand it...why are they charging the boat one thing then extra for the racers......and whats this technical crew (x3) thing? :confused? does that mean theres 3 guys covering the boat at any given time during the race? And this $1500 extra? where or who is that money going to or for? Its all a bit fishy.....

How can a 25 foot boat compete against a 46 footer?
