Default Real ocean racing again?

HORBA has been getting a lot of inquiries lately in regards to the offshore race that was scheduled to take place in October.

It is our understanding that the race has been postponed to February of next year, around boat show time.

But that brings up the question of how many of today's boaters would actually do a race like that.

Would you race across the Gulf Stream and around the Bahamas for 200 miles??

They wanted to have 4 classes.
Historic Race Boats
Modern Race Boats
Poker Run Boats
Diesel Cruisers

Maybe someone who knows how to do it, could put up a poll to see if there is any real interest in that kind of racng anymore........ and if there are people out there that would actually commit to do it.
