I'm looking at bringing my Far 30 Evo (sprit & A sails) to this event to race in the double-handed fleet.

Any tips for logistics around marina's to launch from, haul/launch in Fort Lauderdale (deliver the boat back) or haul in Key West?

Ah, you got it right with a trailerable setup.  I spent all last evening scratching my head trying to figure out a solution for a DH distance racing boat that we can get to all the various races around the country.  We bought a J/111 in March.  Fantastic boat, but now I'm wondering if we should have gotten a J/88 or similar with a trailer instead.  

That said, if anyone knows of 28-40' sprit boat that could be chartered for this race, please let me know.

Look at the marinas in Dania for launch. Can haul either in Stock island or there's a boatyard with (I believe) suitably deep draft in Marathon Key

You should try to do it fully crewed if you can, tough to doublehand a race with so many minute course adjustments

Well we know marathon can at least handle 5.5ft!

That challenge is the point.  This race is one of the targeted double-handed distance races for the US schedule.

Bring a Wad of cash for the keys.

Nothing but good memories of that race (except for whizzing by unlit items at night at speed) .

Sail Safe!

Two places in KW, the ATM and the strip clubs.  Sailing?  Hug the marks and feel ok to wander inside of them.
