Talked with some of the guys down in Marathon on Thursday and they said the waters were in the 10 to 12 foot range. Definitely not boating waters
No way! maybe offshore, but where the course is a 1-2ft chop at best.
A little hairy out by the bridge but thats it.
Glad you guys are OK

just came home from Marathon. No way were there any 10 to 12's!
Windy, yes, very, 15-25 mph from the east.
Waves, maybe 5-6', not anywhere near what we saw in Miami!
I will post pics as soon as I have dinner first.

We are packing for the drive home right now but let me clear this up... The seas offshore were indeed 10 foot but we raced on the bay side in protected waters from the ocean and some of the wind. It was 1-2ft at most with some mixed up water along the bridge. I wish it had been bigger!!
