Been there twice, very disappointing. Seen much better races on the main channel of LOTO. Fun if you want to watch 5-6 boats drive around about 1/4 mile apart.

Everyone takes something different away from these races... over the last four years, the class attendance has been changing... however, still a good time to walk through the pits, talk to the guys and checkout the hardware.

I 100% agree, not looking for argument. I would be very upset if I drove a distance. I love all big horsepower so curiosity will bring me back this year, but I am close. Will probably boat over on Sunday, hang out for first race then head over to boaters beach. Just not expecting much. Not like the old days when they came through chi town with 35-45 boats.

The Marina says there are 50 transients signed up for slips already for the weekend. Weather is supposed to be nice. Should be a good time on the docks as usual

Water conditions were perfect for racing.
