YES!!!!!

Marathon Has great Viewing from the seawall, and it will be even better if they open the bridge back up.

Key West is Pretty good from land also.

Deerfield is Good.

Miami was OK

Dania, we shall see in a few weeks.

Albert, I am just a few years behind you, still spectating, who knows, I may even end up in one of your old boats!!!!

Yes, fantastic veiwing from the seawall in Marathon. Once I swear I was looking to dig a hole to get in because I thought the Callan Boat was coming up on land! It was heading right at us, but the turn is plenty safe from the seawall, but still it was a rush seeing it headed right at us at 190+.

I don't think he broke when he ran the turbines. He's now running experimental V12 power. Hopefully he'll keep it together in Sarasota.

They ran in Marathon last year, ask TimG, I think he was there. Most awesome sight I've seen in racing.

Yeah, last year in Marathon, Callan ran very good and very close to the seawall, it was awsome.
For land viewing, Key West, is about as good as it gets, anywhere along the Mole pier, Hilton, Ocean Key House, Pier House, Hyatt and the other one.
