The Race is ON! Miami to NY 2004


Iíve been holding this in for a while now so itís good to be able to spill the beans.

Itís official, the Miami to NY 2004 race is on and scheduled for June 25th through July 2nd. This is not a run through the night event. This will have 6 overnight stops along the way. See the map on the site. The accumulated running time between stops will determine the winner.

This is not hearsay; this is from the horseís mouth as Iíve been acting as a consultant to this group for the last few months. They are well funded and have hired a professional marketing firm to pull this all together. The people involved are from the Dakar Rally world and this is their first attempt at bringing that type of event to the water.

This wonít be for the feint of heart or pocketbook. The entry fee is 10K, but there is a $200,000 prize purse. $125,000 for first place. No more than 30 boats will race.

This event will be filmed as a documentary or reality TV show to be aired worldwide. International teams are expected to compete as well. Heís the one catch. No refueling between stops. So bring the BIG gas tanks with ya.

If youíre up for the challenge, go to http://www.miami-newyork2004.com/index.html and fill out the online registration form

What do you think?

A Jersey Boyz team for this event !!!!!!!!!!!

The Jersey Boyz have more than enough resources and experience to put a winning team together. They could take turns driving.
