I know there must be Island owners in the Mid-Atlantic and North East region that always wanted to do a Watertribe race but could not because of the distance to Florida.
Now is your chance to get your feet wet. Watertribe with Chesapeake Light Craft is doing a nice short race on May 19 in the upper Chesapeake:http://www.watertribe.com/Events/OkoumeFestUltraMarathon/Default.aspx
This race IS NOT only for wooden boats. Chief and I are the only Islands registered at this time. I would like to see more support from the Island community. The Chesapeake can rival the Florida races if we can get the support. Don't think twice. Time is getting short...
