Unfamiliar with area, first time to races. Plan was to Drive out Saturday with 3 people towing dingy (they want to) potentiallly putt around Saturday afternoon. GLADLY take suggestions of best place to be at or do for weekend activities? Ramp that may have parking? Best time to be at wet pits, is there a better place to see races, etc? Thanks for any thoughts

We went last year and watched from the beach at Headlands State Park. The boat's run parallel to the beach and close enough in to see them well. This is assuming the course is the same.

Menner is our pit stop on our way back from OBX... cant wait to see the boys run. Not my favorite venue considering how great Michigan City is but still really excited! Gonna hit this race, mi city, and then cap it off at key west!
