Current forecast models are all showing wind on Sunday, however, the timing of this front and the wind direction needed
to race is the reason for the delay in schedule. This will also give folks driving quite a distance a bit more time to arrive.
As of this notice, most models agree a SW in the am shifting to a West to WNW as the day goes on.
The first 1/3 of the course will be a long tack, the remainding 2/3 will be more of a downwind sprint to the finish.
Should make for a very exciting and fast race!!!!!
Online registration is still open. $40...Online $50....Day of race
PS: Julie and I are hosting a pre-party at The Postcard Inn, race finish line, on St. Pete beach tonight (Friday 2/17)
from 6pm-9pm. Feel free to come join us to register, hang out, ask questions, and get the Tampa Bay crew together to
celebrate our sport! We will be there past 9pm for sure, but we won't register anyone past 9.
See you at the starting line!
