    Everglades Challenge

    Three rumors:
    1) restart at Cape Haze:
    https://www.google.com/maps/place/C...1cf976cef3ea09!8m2!3d26.8503433!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/S...2a01ac5923d143!8m2!3d26.9096704!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?

    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.
