I wish.Even that is viewpoint-dependent. It's unlikely I'll ever switch from Speck Tater to participant, but if I did, I would make sure to reach each checkpoint and the finish within an hour of deadline. Hey, I paid good money for this experience, so "best" would be longest-lasting, right?
That's my philosophy also. There will always be uphill somewhere.I wish.
But if there is a North wind blowing, I go, go, go. Because I know sooner or later, I am going to be going uphill to the finish.
Randy and I were talking about doing Baja Ha Ha, Randy on his F25C Yo!, and me on my Olson 40 Euphoria. For certain, the major meals would be created by my wife, the chef, aboard the Olson!Speed isn't everything.
I don't believe Randy has ever had a good omelette aboard Sizzor
A spring tide might get an O40 into the first checkpoint, but you'd need to time your arrival with a tsunami to get into Chokoskee or Flamingo!You could probably figure a way to get that Olson 40 up and down the beach. Wouldn't be a great boat to cross the flats in, though.
I don't think it was me. I dropped out after about 150 miles in 2020. I was going for that Alligator tooth in a kayak, but I ran out of beans with the head wind. Re thinking my strategy, will try again.That's my philosophy also. There will always be uphill somewhere.
If you are who I think you are and were in the catamaran with the red top main, I think you passed us in the last bay before the finish in 2020.
Just do the Ulimate Florida Challenge to get the Gator tooth. It’s how I got two.I don't think there really is an ultimate EC boat. …
Gator tooth is on my to do list, but so far I no luck.
Which checkpoint?Not racing this year, will be running a checkpoint again like last year. But I've already lined up my team for 2023.
First checkpoint at Cape Haze Marina, only a couple of miles down from Stump. We'll be there from about 1030 on Saturday until late Sunday afternoon.Which checkpoint?
I continue to hope to fly my drone around Stump Pass. Weathered out the last two years and this year isn't looking good. My brother has cancer and it's bad and I'm his primary caregiver.
