Everglades Challenge

Three rumors:
1) restart at Cape Haze:
https://www.google.com/maps/place/Ca...!4d-82.2942613

2) restart on the south side of Tampa Bay at 7AM Sunday.....

3) moved to CP1 at Stump Pass @ 7AM Sunday...... https://www.google.com/maps/place/St...!4d-82.3524022
about 20 miles noth of Cape Haze....

They're going to have people spread out all over if the boats/competitors are getting this multiple site (mis)information?

PS- great Sizzor pictures-thanks!

Randy started at Fort DeSoto at 7AM and is even with Sanibel Island now.
Going pretty fast!

I am tempted to build a sailboat for this event but at my age it would be foolhardy.

Ah now, if you are going to be a fool it is best to be a hardy one! Go for it but take a hammock for power naps.

Not chronologically, but there are physical factors to consider in that calibration.

I realize that, of course! I was just having fun because you left yourself wide-open.

It must take a lot of stamina, determination & other factors to do one of these challenges, and I have tremendous respect for all those who do them. I'm not sure I would ever have been able to.
