Default Poll - so, who's racing?

Are any of the guys from Ft. Lauderdale or Tampa coming to AJ's DW race? I'm also wondering if the CKA guys will be showing up.

So far I only know of:

Damo
Kent
Gebi
Josh...

let's see who's coming.

Thumbs up Rick's gonna pull the trigger!

Come on Rick, you can do it buddy.....less than 3 hours if you average 20 knots.....if you average more than 20 knots speed you can get it done in less than 2.5 hours. As your personal health coach, I think your body is ready!

Jan Boersma is on for the race as well. Jan and I just tried our new downwind race boards today and they are feeling friendly to high speed runs in rough water...

Forecast looks like 20 to 25 knots with 5 to 7 foot seas so it will be a race to stay in between waves on the inside without getting munched in the shore break, this will be a fun one!
