Default fort myers to naples race ( pier to pier )up date

GUYS:
We just wanted to let you all know that we are still looking forward to our Fort Myers to napes race ( down wind ) we know you are all still waiting but after all the effort and time we put into this project we want to be done properly.
Unfortunately the wind has not been working with us and as you know November was a wash out well as December because of holidays and no wind but we are now in January and are looking for the wind so that we can all have a great race and a great day.
Thank you all for you patience.

We are sorry that the wind is taking its time and we do not want to disrupt any body else’s plans.
If you have any questions please call us at any time

We can't control the weather, at least not the way we want to at present. Thanks for all your hard efforts in organizing this event. When the wind comes we'll be here and your downwinder should be just the ticket to slack all that wind lust. Hang in there and thanks again!

Ok, we are getting closer. What's the deal with the Naples race? Looks like we could easily run the event backwards. Go to www.magicseaweed.com and click the wind. This is a very good site and gives a good indication of when the wind will switch. I must say that this will be a bit taxing to do 2 races back to back on the same tack! Who's in?
