Question 2 is confusing me because I have a Freeze Frame tape of the 1987 Worlds in Key West, I have another of the Worlds in Atlantic City in 1989. I wasn't personally at either race so I'm not making any uneducated comments, just stating what I have.

Where can I find online, historical results of offshore races over the past 10 years. You would think all race results would be easy enough to research on the internet.

Supposedly, the 87 race was a regular race during the season. The 89 race was the World Championship.

Does that seem correct?

In the '87 Key West race Steve Curtis' Cougar won the open class, I think I remember reading about this in Boating Magazine way back when, Pete Hildago in American Dream won modified. Bob Kaiser was in the ACR Systems boat with US-1 on it and I believe he had mechanical problems. Don Johnson was in the Gentry Scarab navigating. The '89 Atlantic City race was a shortened course because of bad weather, I can't remember who won what but there is some great footage of the Apaches, Predetor and Island Runner in pretty big water. Again, this info is all from Freeze Frame and all I can tell you is whats on the tapes.
